DEWALT Enhances Three Original 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® Tools

DEWALT’s most powerful line just got better with Circular Saw, Grinder, and Reciprocating Saw upgrades

At the 2019 Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA®) tradeshow, DEWALT announces upgrades to three products that were part of the original DEWALT FLEXVOLT® System, debuted in 2016. The new 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® 7-1/4 IN. Circular Saw (DCS578)60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® 4-1/2 – 6 IN. Grinder (DCG418), and 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® Reciprocating Saw (DCS389) each offer increased power versus their predecessors.

The upgrades to these three tools mean that the Circular Saw (DCS578) is up to 47% more powerful than its predecessor**, the DCS575. The Grinder (DCG418) is up to 30% more powerful than its predecessor, the DCG414**. And the Reciprocating Saw (DCS389) is up to 19% more powerful than its predecessor, the DCS388**. Each of these tools achieves this increase in performance via new motors, new software, and new controls. In addition, each of these tools will be available as a kit with a 9.0Ah*** battery. The original FLEXVOLT tools were kitted with a 6.0Ah** battery.

When 60V MAX* tools and the FLEXVOLT Battery System debuted in 2016, they revolutionized power tools, featuring the world’s first batteries that automatically changed voltage when the user changes tools. Still today, with 20 tools now in this premium line, the 60V MAX* System continues to provide tools that offer the power of corded with the freedom of cordless. Upgrades to these three tools continue the legacy of efficiency in heavy applications, with added power and long runtime. In other words, three of “our most powerful tools just got better”.

Available where DEWALT products are sold in spring 2020, the three new tools will retail bare tool (without a battery), and P kitted with one 9.0Ah** battery. More information on FLEXVOLT and all other DEWALT products can be found at DEWALT.com.

DEWALT® Introduces Cordless Polishers

DEWALT® Introduces Cordless Polishers

 

DEWALT debuts two new polishers; automotive specialty tools that add to the extensive lineup of 20V MAX* tools from DEWALT. The new tools include the 20V MAX* XR® 7 in. (180mm) Variable Speed Rotary Polisher (DCM849) and the 20V MAX* XR® 5 in. (125mm) Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher (DCM848).

Cordless automotive tools not only offer convenience both in the shop and in remote work areas, but they also help to prevent damage to work by not having power cords drag across surfaces. The 20V MAX* XR® 7 in. (180mm) Variable Speed Rotary Polisher features a high-efficiency brushless motor and achieves a no-load speed of 800-2200 RPM with a variable speed trigger and dial. Designed to be held either by its side or bail handle (both included with the tool), the tool can be held at a variety of angles and positions. Featuring rubber molding, it is also covered in key areas to protect worksurfaces. In addition, the battery housing is oriented horizontally so that the foot of the tool doesn’t interfere with polishing, and so that the user can get as close to the surface as possible. Its tool-only weight is 4.7 pounds and it’s 16 inches long.

The 20V MAX* XR® 5 in. (125mm) Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher also features a brushless motor and variable speed trigger and dial. It achieves a no-load speed range of 2000-5500 OPM with a 15mm throw for a wide variety of applications including detail work on cars, headlights, windshields and fiber glass. The tool is also designed to be held either by its front-end gripping area or side handle (included with the tool), and it also has rubber molding to help protect the tool and the worksurface. The rubber molding also helps the user grip the tool, and finally, like the new DEWALT 20V MAX* Variable Speed Rotary Polisher, the Random Orbit Polisher features a battery housing that’s positioned away from the head of the tool. Its tool-only weight is 5.7 pounds and it’s 17-1/8 inches long.

Available in fall 2019, the 20V MAX* XR® 7 in. (180mm) Variable Speed Rotary Polisher will come kitted with two 5.0Ah Batteries (DCM849P2) or bare (DCM849B). Also available in fall 2019, the 20V MAX* XR® 5 in. (125mm) Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher will come kitted with two 5.0Ah Batteries (DCM848P) or bare (DCM848B). Both 20V MAX* Polishers will come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
