Tool Maker Releases Cordless Air Compressor
Dewalt announces the FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor (DCC2560). This tool is in made in Jackson, Tenn., with global materials and is part of the growing FLEXVOLT System from Dewalt.
For the user that wants to leverage their existing pneumatic tools, the FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor is a compact, portable, and lightweight choice at only 21.5 lbs. without a battery. The compressor achieves up to 1,220 nails per charge using one 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT Battery (DCB606) and a Dewalt 18 GA Brad Nailer (DWFP12233). The compressor maintains speed during a variety of finish applications including molding, baseboards, door and window casing work, deck lattice, as well as cabinet and furniture projects.
The FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor features an efficient brushless motor paired with a heavy-duty, oil-free pump. It provides cordless convenience with the power of a corded tool. Another premium feature of the compressor is its OneTurn™ regulator for fast, accurate pressure adjustment. Traditional compressors have two separate gauges; one gauge that measures tank pressure and another that measures the regulated output pressure flowing through the couplers and into the air tools. To adjust the regulated pressure on traditional compressors, the user has to turn the regulator knob and wait for the regulated pressure gauge to catch up. The FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor comes with the OneTurn regulator which allows the user to simply turn the knob so the indicator is pointing to the desired PSI. The compressor will then self-regulate.
In addition, the compressor’s roll cage provides durability and rubber feet help to prevent the tool from walking when in use. The FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor has a maximum tank pressure of 135 PSI and delivers 1.2 SCFM @ 90 PSI (tested per ISO 1217). This provides ideal pressure and air flow for an extended range of trim and finish applications. For the loyal pneumatic user who wants to untether themselves from a power source, but still use their existing pneumatic tools, the FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor is the perfect solution. Available in fall 2017 where Dewalt products are sold, the FLEXVOLT 60V MAX* 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor will come kitted with one 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT Battery (DCB606) and one fast charger (DCB118) for $299 MSRP (DCC2560T1). It will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
