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.

**Using DCB203 battery, stapling 12-2 Romex wire in 2×4 wood.
