DEWALT has launched a new range of cordless power tools that guarantee sustained, all-day onsite performance without the need for mains power supply.
The new XR FLEXVOLT range enables busy professional tradesmen to confidently and conveniently tackle heavy duty applications due to a 54v battery offering mains equivalent power without the cord.
The batteries are created using three 18v batteries that switch up to 54v when attached to any XR FLEXVOLT tool. This makes it compatible with the existing DEWALT XR power tolls range and provides tradesmen with a complete ‘one stop shop’ cordless power tool solution.
The range incorporates the new 54V SDS PLUS HAMMER drill and SDS MAX HAMMER drill, which offer mains equivalent power, with anti-vibration and anti-rotation systems, as well as drilling capacity up to 30mm and 40mm.
The first 305mm cordless mitre saw will also be incorporated, delivering 108V of power performance from a battery, added flexibility for use with a cord in workshops, precision cutting, high accuracy and guaranteed long life.
In addition, the range will feature various 54V table, circular, reciprocating, alligator, plunge and 250mm mitresaws, 54V Angle Grinder and 9ah battery.
Darren Barber, marketing director, at DEWALT, comments: “The mains equivalent battery power ensures the tools can easily deal with the toughest materials, plus the faster application speed that the 54V battery delivers, means less energy is used overall, improving runtime on heavy duty applications.
For extra ease, we’ve made the 54V battery cross-compatible with out 18V power tool range, to enable it to complement existing power tools tradesmen already own and therefore create a complete cordless power tool system.”
