Nice find at tool nut likely to spread to other sites as well. I look forward to acme sending my Bare tool version it  has shown up as pending a few times on the old credit card but disappeared again, with luck it ships soon. Battery wise I am in fair shape 12-6.0ah and 5-9.0ah

That's a nice battery collection I still have yet to get any 9ah I have 5 6.0s

Beauty! Been wanting it, saw a pricing error the day it was listed on my side of the border (229 CAD which was switched to 299 the next day). I have other things higher priority at the moment but this is on the to do list as well. Looking forward to your thoughts.

Getting mine delivered Friday...just wanted to post Acme has the kit...dcs577x1 ( saw.., charger 118,...1/9ah for $299...it lists online for $399 on their web and amazon...but on sale....tool nut has it for $409 with a free 9ah...

 

I'm confused, so Acme has the kit for sale at $299 somewhere but shows $399 on the site and Amazon? 

 

And Toolnut's offer, bonus 9ah...is that the kit plus bonus 9 for a total of two batteries? 

 

If so I'm jumping on this that's a ridiculous deal.

Yes @Hugh Jass...sorry for the confusion...on the acme site online it has the dcs577x1 kit for 399...same kit on amazon for 399...BUT as I always do , I called acme and the kit is either listed wrong or it’s further marked down to 299......also over at Tool  Nut it’s listed as 409 but they add in a free 9ah battery ( ode ..9amp I think)...........either way it’s a great deal....I have a dozen or so 9ah so I got the 299 deal.....saw, 118charger, 1/9ah , bag

Man, the USA gets such unreal deals lol, meanwhile our HDs up here mark something down 2 cents and call it a clearance 😭. We still have it better than our Euro and Aussie friends though I suppose pricewise. 

 

Plenty of IG videos with this beast hauling serious ass, the only thing that surprises me is the 2-7/16” cut depth. Figured they’d make sure you framing guys have the extra 1/8”, like corded/Makita.

This will be my first push into Flex, I think I'm going to go with the Toolnut deal so I get the extra battery. Technically compared to the Acme it's about the same deal and you're paying the cost of the extra battery in a 2 pack just split in half. Can't deny it's a good deal though, effectively 2 9ah batteries and a rapid charger for $100 more than the bare tool.

Ah the dreaded rafter hook someone actually used it......very very rare in our world of framing....definitely glad it’s powerful 


Man people been bitching about the lack of a rafter hook for years on dewalt saws. I'm just glad that's over, lol.
