The DEWALT Bare-Tool DC390B is a professional-duty circular saw that delivers cordless convenience without sacrificing power or performance. An 18-volt battery (not included) drives the saw’s 6-1/2-inch, thin-kerf blade at 3,700 RPM, an optimum speed for crosscutting and ripping construction lumber, softwood, hardwood, plywood, particleboard, oriented-strand board and virtually any other sheet good. With depth-of-cut capacities of 2-1/4 -inch at 90-degree, and 1 5/8 -inch at 45-degree (bevel), the DC390B can slice through all 2-by dimensional lumber. The compact saw comes with a carbide-tipped saw blade and blade wrench. This saw is portable and great for outside projects where there are no power plugs. This is a bare tool therefore battery and charger are sold separately. This tool works with these batteries (DC9096, DC9180) and chargers (DCB103, DW9117, DC9310, DC9319, DC9320, DC012).

Users complain that the batteries drain very fast on this tool. It is recommended to carry extra batteries when on job sites.

Overall, the DEWALT DC390B is a great tool for handy man and people who love woodwork. Regardless of whether you’re building wood decks, bookcases or kitchen cabinets, the DeWalt DC390B Cordless Circular Saw won’t let you down.

No, I don't think it comes with a case. This DEWALT DC390B cordless circular saw comes with one carbide tipped blade, one blade wrench, and operating instructions. The batteries and charger are sold separately and not included.
