DEWALT® Announces 60V MAX* Mixer/Drill with E-Clutch® System Long runtime, cordless convenience, and a durable brushless motor achieve powerful mixing and drilling

DEWALT announces the 60V MAX* Mixer/Drill with E-Clutch® System (DCD130), designed for mixing a wide variety of materials from thin set to fiber-reinforced concrete. The Mixer/Drill can also be used for high torque drilling.

Using the DCB606 battery, the 60V MAX* Mixer/Drill with E-Clutch® System offers more than two times the power of DEWALT’s corded mixing drill DW130V, and it can mix up to 19 buckets of pre-mixed drywall buckets, 17 buckets of tile mortar, and 9 buckets of concrete**. For tile, drywall, flooring as well as metal drilling, and wood drilling applications such as 4-5/8″ Self-Feed Bits through 2x SPF#2, the 60V MAX* Mixer/Drill with E-Clutch® System offers a powerful brushless motor that allows the tool to maintain mixing speed in tough material and eliminates brushes and brush changes. The Mixer/Drill also offers long runtime and cordless convenience, operating off FLEXVOLT® Batteries that are compatible with most DEWALT 20V MAX* tools.

Key to the 60V MAX* 1/2″ Mixer/Drill is the E-Clutch® System, which senses tool motion and eliminates the torque when binding is detected by stopping the motor. The user is notified that the E-Clutch® System has been activated through an illuminated LED light. Additional features are the 1/2″ keyed chuck that accepts hex or rounded mixing paddles, a three-position side handle, a variable speed trigger, a Bluetooth® Tag mount, chuck key holder, rear-handle mount that is compatible with the DEWALT Spade Handle (DW130V sold separately), and an LED light to illuminate the workspace.

The 60V MAX* 1/2″ Mixer/Drill with E-Clutch® System is also a PERFORM & PROTECT™ tool. PERFORM & PROTECT™ tools are designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
