DEWALT® Launches 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw 20V MAX* System from DEWALT totals over 100 products

20V MAX* System from DEWALT totals over 100 products

DEWALT® continues to expand its 20V MAX* System, totaling over 100 products, with the 20V MAX* Compact Cordless Chainsaw (DCCS620). Specifically designed for use in construction applications, the chainsaw is a versatile option for tree work, cutting timbers, or demolition on a jobsite.

The 20V MAX* Compact Chainsaw features a 12 in. Oregon® bar and chain that offers low kickback cutting in compact spaces as well as tool-free tensioning and auto-oiling. Equipped with an efficient brushless motor, the chainsaw achieves up to 90 cuts per charge using a 20V MAX* 5.0 Ah Lithium Ion battery (DCB205) on 4×4 inch pressure-treated pine wood.

At only 9 lbs. (including the DCB205), the chainsaw is lightweight and optimized for small cuts in tight spaces. The chainsaw starts with the pull of the trigger, eliminating the cold starts and carburetor issues that come with gas-powered chainsaws. Its gas-free operation also makes the 20V MAX* Chainsaw ideal for indoor cutting and demolition applications.

Available in September 2017, the Chainsaw joins the expanding 20V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment family which already includes a 20V MAX* String Trimmer, Handheld Blower and Hedge Trimmer, and the FLEXVOLT® Outdoor Power Equipment family including the 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® String Trimmer, Handheld Blower and Chainsaw for high-power applications. DEWALT Outdoor Power tools come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee.

New Cat MP318 & MP324 Multi-Processors

Caterpillar Work Tools, a leading provider of wheel loader and excavator attachments, is introducing a new generation of Multi-Processors for Cat® hydraulic excavators. Caterpillar’s Multi-Processor MP318 and MP324 can handle virtually any demolition job simply by using the basic housing and a choice of up to six available jaw sets. Other models will be added to the standard offering at a later stage.

Features and benefits

The new Multi-Processor builds on the success of its predecessor. It features compact weight-to-power ratio, with incredibly strong cutting and crushing capability. The housing’s strong rotator provides a continuous 360° rotation that allows you to carry out the demolition job quickly and precisely from any angle. The new Multi-Processor will cement its position as the class leading, and most versatile demolition tool.

Cat MPEasy and simplified jaw exchange

Each Multi-Processor can be equipped with a wide selection of interchangeable jaws;

Concrete Cutter (CC), Demolition (D), Pulverizer (P), Shear (S), Universal (U), and Tank Shear (TS). With one common housing and properly selected sets of jaws a contractor can achieve exceptional flexibility with minimum investment, and accomplish most tasks encountered on a demolition job. The various jaws can be quickly installed or changed, thanks to a new patent pending jaw locking system. Instead of taking about 45 minutes to change the jaws with the previous series, it now only takes 10 minutes. And all you need are some basic tools.

Easy maintenance

Maintenance has been made easier too. The new jaws use bolt-on and pin on wear material eliminating almost all need to weld the jaws. Keeping a jaw set in good repair has never been easier, and can be done on-site in a matter of hours. Protection for hydraulic components and hoses has been increased, and an improved motor guard gives greater motor protection. Also the access to the cylinder has been made easier and the cylinder rod protection has been optimized. Further the number of greasing points has been reduced so servicing becomes easy. Daily maintenance requires only greasing, checking wear, and replace any worn parts.

The Multi-Processors are fully supported by Cat dealers so that customers can order parts and service for machines and work tools from a single source. Every Cat work tool is supported with a comprehensive range of pre- and after-sales services that include: advice on work tool selection, operator training, equipment management, and a range of financial and insurance solutions.
