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.
