DEWALT® Celebrates Tough Trades

DEWALT® celebrates trades this holiday season. Starting today, DEWALT will give away tools for a variety of trades on its DEWALT Instagram page.

The #ToughTrades giveaway is dedicated to the people who are employed in woodworking, electrical and plumbing, and mechanical industries, concrete and masonry professionals, metalworkers, and general contractors. DEWALT is committed to providing these professionals with products that deliver the performance they need to get tough jobs done each and every day.

Between December 4, 2017, and December 14, 2017, DEWALT will post clues on its Instagram page @DEWALTTOUGH. Followers can guess what’s in each prize and then come back and see the reveal. A new prize will be posted every other day.

Today’s #ToughTrade is Metalworking. DEWALT packed a TOUGHSYSTEM® Mobile Storage box for professional metalworkers. The first clue is, when you need corded grinding power, go cordless. The second clue is, this Type-1 mini hub was big news this year.

Six winners will be selected via random drawings during #ToughTrades giveaway. All the action starts today, December 4, 2017, at 9:00 am EST on Instagram @DEWALTTOUGH.

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.

The Future of Construction from DEWALT® — Introducing the new age of job site connectivity.

DEWALT announces the new age of job site connectivity with its unprecedented effort to make building more efficient through digital solutions. Over the coming months, DEWALT will launch a fully connected system, including WiFi mesh network and, later, an Internet of Things platform, to enhance productivity, profitability, and safety on the jobsite.

After extensive research, DEWALT identified that, due to the increase in digital dependency in the construction field, there is an unmet need for reliable connectivity and asset management across the jobsite. Sharing data has become more necessary for contractors, yet limited connectivity options exist.

DEWALT’s patented WiFi mesh technology provides a key solution with its ruggedized access points built to withstand the harsh and variable conditions of a construction job site. DEWALT WiFi enables general and trade contractors to collaborate in real-time across large-scale jobsites and to easily access critical site information such as prints, schedules, budgets and RFIs.

“DEWALT understands how vital the building and construction industries are to local and global economies,” said Tony Nicolaidis, Vice President of Marketing for Connected Systems. “Leveraging technology, our goal is to provide solutions for gathering in-depth jobsite data for better decision-making by general contractors and trade contractors, thus enhancing productivity and safety.”

The WiFi solution is the beginning and foundation of an entire end-to-end solution. DEWALT will also offer an IoT platform, enabling contractors to understand the location and utilization of assets and data on site. As an initial offering, the DEWALT Tool Connect™ inventory management system is one component of total asset management. This will become part of the larger digital platform providing critical data to inform decision-making.

“Entering the connectivity space is a great move for DEWALT and a promising opportunity for the industry. They bring a wealth of expertise to the industry as the first company to truly focus on creating a platform to support the Internet of Things. In tackling connectivity, we see huge potential and opportunity for DEWALT and the wider construction community,” said Taylor Cupp, Technologist for Mortenson Construction.

Together, these solutions from DEWALT will connect the jobsite in a revolutionary way, allowing contractors to improve efficiency, profitability and safety through unparalleled connectivity, insights and asset optimization. DEWALT will soon be accepting pre-orders. Sign up to learn more at www.dewalt.com/jobsitewifi.

DEWALT® FLEXVOLT® System Outdoor Power Equipment-New outdoor tools for residential & commercial construction

DEWALT® expands the FLEXVOLT® System with Outdoor Power Equipment. Featuring the world’s first batteries that automatically change voltage when the user changes tools, the Outdoor Power Equipment lineup will include the new 60V MAX* Chainsaw, Handheld Blower, and  String Trimmer, all featuring the new FLEXVOLT® 60V MAX* 3.0Ah battery (9.0Ah when used in 20V MAX* tools).

For residential and commercial construction professionals, the FLEXVOLT® System is backwards compatible with most of the existing DEWALT 20V MAX* system, which now includes over 100 products.  This means that the FLEXVOLT® Batteries operate both the DEWALT 60V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment as well as DEWALT 20V MAX* Power Tools.

The 60V MAX* Chainsaw (DCCS670X1) is equipped with a powerful brushless motor delivering gas performance. The low kickback 16” Oregon® bar and chain has auto-oiling for continuous lubrication and a tool-free tensioning system for quick bar and chain adjustments. The chainsaw delivers smooth cuts, long chain life, and does not have the engine maintenance that is required with gas-powered chainsaws. With no more cold starts and carburetor issues, this chainsaw starts easily with the pull of the trigger.

Its tool-free chain tensioning and bar tightening knob enable proper bar clamping force, and it features auto-oiling for continuous lubrication.  It has a 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT battery that powers 60V MAX* tools or it can be backwards compatible to work with 20V MAX* tools.

The 60V MAX* Handheld Blower (DCBL770X1) is also equipped with a brushless motor which generates gas performance to clear jobsite debris at up to 423 CFM & 129 MPH. The Handheld Blower also includes a flat concentrator nozzle to increase air speed to 175 MPH for heavy duty debris. A variable speed trigger and lock allow for full throttle control without having to constantly hold down the trigger.

It features a variable speed trigger and speed lock for total power control, and its lightweight and ergonomic design maximizes control and minimizes stress on your arms.  It has a 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT battery that powers 60V MAX* tools or it can be backwards compatible to work with 20V MAX* tools.

The 60V MAX* String Trimmer (DCST970X1) features a 15” cut swath accepting DEWALT 0.080” or 0.095” lines and a gear-drive transmission providing amplified torque that maintains cut speed under load. Optimal for construction cleanup and maintenance, the 60V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment allows residential & commercial construction users to leave the gas tank behind and expand their DEWALT power tool and battery systems. The new 60V MAX* Chainsaw, Handheld Blower, and String Trimmer will be available where DEWALT products are sold in spring 2017.

For professional landscapers, the DEWALT 40V MAX* System offers a battery solution for daylong, heavy-duty outdoor use. All DEWALT Outdoor Power tools come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee.
