DCP580 Planer

DEWALT introduces 18V brushless, cordless planer

New from DEWALT is the DCP580 Planer which the power tool manufacturer says is the world’s first 18V brushless, cordless planer.

The new technology pairs an efficient brushless motor with a high capacity XR battery, working in tandem to provide maximum output and excellent runtime. DEWALT says the DCP580 has enough runtime for a typical day’s work from just one charge of a DEWALT 18V 5Ah XR Li-ion battery.

Ergonomically designed, guaranteed tough

The DCP580 is designed to withstand the harshest of jobsite conditions and excel during the toughest applications. This durability is harnessed within a lightweight, compact body; well-balanced for both horizontal and vertical planing. The DCP580 weighs in at just 3.1KG with battery, weighted towards the front of the trigger to reduce any physical strain during use. Its soft grip handle offers end-users optimum comfort and manoeuvrability during a wide range of applications, ensuring the DCP580 remains practical and user-friendly for all DEWALT trade professionals.

The DEWALT DCP580 combines power with performance, allowing it to plane up to 2.0mm in soft wood or hard wood, giving end-users the planing capacity to meet most demands. The twin 82mm TCT reversible blades ensure a smooth, clean and accurate cut, the 295mm total shoe length in turn offers further improved stability and precision. Additional user-friendly features: including on-board blade storage and an in-built Torx key for rapid, easy blade changes, reducing downtime spent in changeover.

The fine indexed, accurate depth adjustment knob allows for maximum precision, with the 9.0mm rebate capacity of the DCP580 making it ideal for minor on-site alterations and fixes. DEWALT has also integrated an AirLock port for compatibility with the DWV9390 dust bag or with DEWALT AirLock extraction systems.
