DeWalt has confirmed that the DeWalt XR Flexvolt battery, a 54 v battery which can power even heavy duty construction power tools which the company unveiled earlier this week, will be available from August.
Completely backwards compatible with existing DEWALT XR 18V products, the DeWalt XR Flexvolt battery is said to offer market-leading runtime in 18V products, with the option to amplify its voltage to power newly developed 54V heavy duty construction equipment.
Eight new products
The power of the DeWalt XR Flexvolt battery opens up new avenues in cordless, heavy duty construction power tools, and DeWalt is launching a new XR Flexvolt product range at the same time. The new DeWalt XR Flexvolt range is comprised of 8 products: a 54V Grinder, 54V SDS plus Hammer, 54V Circular saw, 54V Alligator saw, 54V Reciprocating Saw, 54V Plunge saw, 54V Table saw, 54V 216mm Mitre saw. These are cordless, heavy duty construction power tools said to provide the accuracy, capacity and power of corded. The DeWalt XR Flexvolt Table saw for example is a power tool capable of cutting 50m of 19mm (¾”) OSB from just one charge of a single battery – yet portable enough to be easily moved from room to room, and without the need to search for a power source.
Commenting on the launch, Darren Barber, DeWalt Marketing Director UK & ROI says: “To put this simply, the DeWalt XR Flexvolt range is the next chapter in cordless technology. DeWalt is launching a range of tools that are not just extremely powerful – they will also provide in excess of a full day’s runtime on single charge for most users. The potential for this technology is limitless: for each and every trade.”
