Unbelievable! A rip fence is not included with the circular saw, and furthermore, it's not even sold in stores in my area - only online!!! Extremely disappointing DeWalt!! I've purchased some of your other cordless tools and have been happy with them, but this is not something I would expect from a company that has such a good reputation. I plan on buying other power tools and was only looking at DeWalt; however, this is making me think twice. Very disappointed!!! Can't believe you guys would sell a circular saw without a rip fence.
Come on Dewalt! You have been one of the industries leaders in tools and you sell a saw without the available products. Your statring to sound like some of these dead beat tool companies. The saw has the ports for a rip fence, but you can't get one for it. Guide us in this avenue or I will have to start lokkking at other companies.
I have the 20v model, and the tools aren't what I would consider inexpensive. Why is it that someone at corporate thought it would be a good idea to NOT include a rip stop? I seriously thought perhaps I accidently threw it out with the box. Also, the manual has ZERO reference to one even existing...I had to search around to make sure I wasn't going crazy. C'mon, Dewalt!
Pros: Like the performance of the saw so far
Cons: Dewalt was generous enough to include a sawblade, but no ripstop?
Very solid saw, the only thing I don't like about the saw itself is the front handle is too far from the blade. If it was about an inch closer like my Porter Cable it would feel a little more comfortable to use. Really guys, no rip fence included? I would pay an extra 5 bucks for the saw if its that costly to include a rip fence. By not including a rip fence in the box creates more hassles than me paying you the extra 5 bucks to include it. None of the stores that sell the saw seem to carry the rip fence in stock. What a pain! Great saw though.
