DEWALT® Expands 20V MAX* System with Inflator

DEWALT® Expands 20V MAX* System with Inflator

I don’t know about you but one of the things I find I constantly need to do is add air to my car, truck, ATVs, utility vehicles, bike, mower, snow blower, pressure washer tires – actually anything that has pneumatic tires (that includes my dollies, wheelbarrows…). Most of the time it’s when there isn’t access to an air compressor.  And on some of the current vintage cars there is no DC outlet (i.e. cigarette/cigar lighter) so the typical 12V tire inflators are worthless.

DEWALT to the rescue as it continues to expand its 20V MAX* System, now featuring over 180 products, with the 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator (DCC020I). For high pressure or high volume inflation or deflation, it features accessories and adapters for a variety of applications such as inflating tires, camping mattresses, sporting equipment, and more.

The 5.5lbs. 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator can be powered by a 20V MAX* or FLEXVOLT® Battery (DCB606, DCB609, or DCB612) from DEWALT, a 12V DC car outlet (12V DC cord included), or a standard 110V AC wall outlet**. Dual inflation modes allow for either high volume inflation or deflation or high-pressure inflation providing a maximum pressure of 160 PSI.

Featuring a digital gauge with auto-shutoff, the 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator allows the user to pre-set the unit to the required pressure through an easy-to-use interface. In addition, the 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator includes a threaded chuck that provides a secure connection while an LED helps to provides illumination. On-board accessory storage means that the included high-pressure nozzle, adapter, inflator needle, and a high volume tapered nozzle are easy to access. The 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator is a durable choice that also includes a high pressure-capable rubber hose and heavy-duty rubber feet.

It’s battery operated; it’s quiet; it’s easy to use; it’s easy to store; it’s fast; it’s battery operated – I know I already said that but if you have ever inflated tires using a DC-corded unit you will understand the true value of “it’s battery operated.”

The versatile 20V MAX* Corded/Cordless Inflator (DCC020IB, bare tool only) is available where DEWALT products are sold and comes standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.

*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.

**Battery, charger and AC adapter sold separately.

 

DEWALT® Debuts 20V MAX* Cordless Cable Stapler

At the 2018 National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Show, DEWALT will debut the new 20V MAX* Cordless Cable Stapler (DCN701) which is a compact and lightweight solution. Part of the growing 20V MAX* System of products from DEWALT, the Electrician’s Stapler replaces manual cable fastening methods and is twice as fast as manual hammer stapling**, helping to provide fast and efficient wire-ups in residential wiring applications. In addition, the 20V MAX* Cordless Cable Stapler is Made in the USA with global materials.

The 4.7lb (without a battery) 20V MAX* Cordless Cable Stapler is primarily designed for fastening NM-B (Romex®) wires and cables, but can also be used for low-voltage applications. A proprietary cable guide helps to drive staples safely and accurately over the cable. The compact frame and lightweight design are ideal for tight spaces. A center-mounted LED light helps to eliminate shadows and illuminate the work area in low light conditions. It is compatible with the new UL® Listed DEWALT DRS1800 1″ insulated cable staples, which are sold separately.

A belt clip that is included with the stapler offers left or right placement, depending on user preference. Available early 2019, the 20V MAX* Cordless Cable Stapler will come kitted with one 2.0Ah DEWALT Battery.  It will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.

*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.

DEWALT® Announces FLEXVOLT® Compressor Made in the USA with global materials

What could be more useful than a cordless compressor? Not much. To fill the void and continue its expansion of the cordless tool jobsite DEWALT® announces the FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor (DCC2560). This tool is in made in Jackson, Tennessee with global materials and is part of the growing FLEXVOLT® System from DEWALT.

For the user that wants to leverage their existing pneumatic tools, the FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor is a compact, portable, and lightweight choice at only 21.5 lbs. without a battery. The compressor achieves up to 1,220 nails per charge using one 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT® Battery (DCB606) and a DEWALT 18 GA Brad Nailer (DWFP12233). The compressor maintains speed during a variety of finish applications including molding, baseboards, door and window casing work, deck lattice, as well as cabinet and furniture projects.

The FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor features an efficient brushless motor paired with a heavy-duty, oil-free pump. It provides cordless convenience with the power of a corded tool. Another premium feature of the compressor is its OneTurn™ regulator for fast, accurate pressure adjustment. Traditional compressors have two separate gauges; one gauge that measures tank pressure and another that measures the regulated output pressure flowing through the couplers and into the air tools. To adjust the regulated pressure on traditional compressors, the user has to turn the regulator knob and wait for the regulated pressure gauge to catch up. The FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor comes with the OneTurn™ regulator which allows the user to simply turn the knob so the indicator is pointing to the desired PSI. The compressor will then self-regulate.

In addition, the compressor’s roll cage provides durability and rubber feet help to prevent the tool from walking when in use. The FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor has a maximum tank pressure of 135 PSI and delivers 1.2 SCFM @ 90 PSI (tested per ISO 1217). This provides ideal pressure and air flow for an extended range of trim and finish applications. For the loyal pneumatic user who wants to untether themselves from a power source, but still use their existing pneumatic tools, the FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor is the perfect solution. Available in fall 2017 where DEWALT products are sold, the FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor will come kitted with one 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT® Battery (DCB606) and one fast charger (DCB118) for $299 MSRP (DCC2560T1). It will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.

With respect to 60V MAX* – Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 60 volts. Nominal voltage is 54.

DEWALT® Announces Tool Connect™ Inventory Management System Four ways to connect: Tools, Tag, Connector, and Batteries

DEWALT announces updates to Tool Connect™, a system originally launched in 2015 that used Bluetooth® technology to manage batteries on the jobsite. Now, Tool Connect™ features a 3-part inventory management solution that encompasses the Tool Connect™ Inventory Manager web portal, the updated Tool Connect™ mobile app, and connected products.

On average, professionals spend about one full workday a week looking for or waiting for tools on the jobsite**. Professionals estimate that thousands of dollars are lost every year due to poor inventory management**†. As a result, an inventory management system that can track tools and jobsite assets is critical.

Inventory Manager System

The Tool Connect™ system from DEWALT works by pairing connected tools, equipment, and materials with the Tool Connect™ app. The same data is also stored online, accessed by logging into the web portal with a DEWALT.com registration, username, and password. This allows the user to track the last seen location of paired assets as well as manage and assign tools and equipment to different jobsites. The system also streamlines tracking, check-in, and check-out processes of tools thereby eliminating wasted time spent searching for such tools. This helps to save costs and increase productivity as well as efficiency.

Connected Products

Connecting tools, equipment, and materials is key to this inventory management system. Connecting can be done in four ways – via new and existing Tool Connect™ tools, the new Tool Connect™ Tag, the new 20V MAX* Tool Connect™ Connector, and existing Tool Connect™ batteries. Existing connected products are the Stackable Corded/Cordless LED Area Light with Tool Connect™ & Built-in Charger (DCL070) and the 20V MAX* 2.0 Amp (DCB203BT) and 5.0 Amp (DCB205BT) lithium ion batteries with integrated Bluetooth® capability. New connected tools include the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ Compact Hammerdrill (DCD797), 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ Compact Drill/Driver (DCD792), 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ Impact Driver (DCF888), and the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ 3-Speed Hammerdrill (DCD997).

In addition, the DEWALT® Bluetooth® Enabled 100 Foot Laser Distance Measure TLM99S (DW099S) is a recent addition to Tool Connect™ products that allows users to store measurements, mark-up photos and save them on the Tool Connect™ app. Other functions include calculating area and volume, as well as performing simple addition and subtraction.

Customization & Diagnostics

Once Tool Connect™ tools are connected, the Tool Connect™ app has customization and diagnostic features. The user can adjust the speed and torque for applications that require consistency and limited variability. The brightness and delay setting of each tool’s LED light is also customizable. Specific to the Stackable Corded/Cordless LED Area Light with Tool Connect™ & Built-in Charger, power, brightness, and schedule can be set from a mobile phone and adjusted within 100 feet. Another tool-specific feature that can be customized, found exclusively in the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ Hammerdrill (DCD997), is Bind-Up Control. Specific customization features of the 20V MAX* XR® Tool Connect™ Impact Driver (DCF888) is PrecisionDrive™ technology which allows the Impact Driver to stall for one second before impacting. This protects the fastener and material surface and provides the user with maximum control during applications that require a high level of craftsmanship. Finally, diagnostics can monitor productivity by counting the number of trigger pulls and duration of tool use. These features plus others provide important information on tool use, temperature, battery charge and more.

Connection Devices

For assets that don’t have integrated Bluetooth® capability, users can still connect by using the Tool Connect™ Tag (DCE041) or the 20V MAX* Connector (DCE040). The Tag, which features more than three years of integrated battery life, can be attached to large equipment, pallets of material, ladders, and more in a variety of ways. Whether glued, screwed, or riveted to an asset, the Tag keeps track of any item on the jobsite. Rated IP68, the Tag is dust-proof, water-resistant, and can withstand tough jobsite conditions. In addition, the Tag makes the connection process easy with a simple push of a large button, eliminating the need to disassemble the unit to connect. Not only is it easy to hide the small Tag on tools and equipment, it’s also easy to locate one particular Tag. With its integrated blue LEDs that light up when that Tag is selected in the Tool Connect™ app, finding an individual asset is easy.

For DEWALT tools that aren’t already connected, the 20V MAX* Connector permanently attaches directly between the battery and tool. In addition to its permanent connection, the Connector can disable itself when it’s out of range, providing a layer of security and peace-of-mind. At only 4.1oz, the Connector features a rechargeable internal coin cell battery that charges when a 20V MAX* battery is inserted. Similar to the Tag, the Connector also features an easily accessible pair button as well as blue LEDs that light up to indicate that it is paired or identified. Most of the more than 100 products in the 20V MAX* System can now be connected to the Tool Connect™ system. With the tools, Tag, Connector, and batteries, anything on the jobsite can become part of the Tool Connect™ system.

The benefits of the Tool Connect™ system are far reaching. One advantage is that the tools can be set to become disabled when they’re out of range, which helps to deter theft. It also solves for common time management issues and helps make jobsite reporting convenient and accurate. This system is designed for jobsite productivity and efficiency and to save owners, tool crib managers and general contractors money due to lost or misplaced jobsite assets. In addition, the app is a secure, closed system so unauthorized accounts cannot see the whereabouts of assets. New connected tools, Tags, and Connectors will be available starting in summer 2017. Also coming in summer 2017, users will be able to access the Tool Connect™ Inventory Manager web portal by logging into the website with a DEWALT.com registration, username, and password and by downloading the updated, free Tool Connect™ app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
