DEWALT's 60V MAX FLEXVOLT Tools
At the 2019 Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA®) tradeshow, DEWALT announces upgrades to three products that were part of the original DEWALT FLEXVOLT® System, debuted in 2016. The new 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® 7-1/4 IN. Circular Saw (DCS578), 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® 4-1/2 – 6 IN. Grinder (DCG418), and 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® Reciprocating Saw (DCS389) each offer increased power versus their predecessors.
The upgrades to these three tools mean that the Circular Saw (DCS578) is up to 47% more powerful than its predecessor**, the DCS575. The Grinder (DCG418) is up to 30% more powerful than its predecessor, the DCG414**. And the Reciprocating Saw (DCS389) is up to 19% more powerful than its predecessor, the DCS388**. Each of these tools achieves this increase in performance via new motors, new software, and new controls. In addition, each of these tools will be available as a kit with a 9.0Ah*** battery. The original FLEXVOLT tools were kitted with a 6.0Ah** battery.
When 60V MAX* tools and the FLEXVOLT Battery System debuted in 2016, they revolutionized power tools, featuring the world’s first batteries that automatically changed voltage when the user changes tools. Still today, with 20 tools now in this premium line, the 60V MAX* System continues to provide tools that offer the power of corded with the freedom of cordless. Upgrades to these three tools continue the legacy of efficiency in heavy applications, with added power and long runtime. In other words, three of “our most powerful tools just got better”.
Available where DEWALT products are sold in spring 2020, the three new tools will retail for $249 MSRP bare tool (without a battery), and $299 MSRP kitted with one 9.0Ah** battery. More information on FLEXVOLT and all other DEWALT products can be found at DEWALT.com.
