E3. CES. NAMM. SDCC. Many industries have their own trade shows, full of press and buzz surrounding the latest announcements and releases, and ours is no different. The World of Concrete is here, and with it come all sorts of new tools and accessories to add to your collection that’s about as never-ending as the story of Atreyu and Falkor. We’ve got six all-new DeWalt tools to discuss today, so let’s dive right in!
60V MAX 27lbs. SDS Max Chipping Hammer (DCH911)
First up is a brand new SDS Max chipping hammer for all your heavy duty demolition, concrete, and tough masonry needs. Capable of delivering 27 Joules of impact energy at a horizontal or downward angle, this chipping hammer can break through the toughest and densest of materials in your mid-to-lower wall and flooring applications. The new DeWalt chipping hammer delivers up to 1620 blows per minute, or BPM, with a 1 – 5 inch chipping range, and is perfect for breaching walls and creating channels, as well as any bushing or scarifying that needs done on your project. The 60V MAX battery line delivers powerful performance and a long-lasting charge for extended use while on the job, and the SHOCKS Active Vibration Control adds an extra layer of safety, giving the operator even greater peace of mind. DeWalt’s all-new 60V MAX SDS Max Chipping Hammer will be available in July 2023.
60V MAX 38lbs Cordless 1-⅛ HEX Breaker Hammer (DCH966)
In a pairing almost as wondrous as a BLT with a white zin (seriously, try it), DeWalt have also announced a new HEX breaker hammer, capable of delivering up to a whopping 40 Joules of impact energy. With up to 1080 BPM and a chipping range of 1 – 8 inches, the breaker hammer is ideal for your powered digging, channel creating, and slab demolishing needs, while also tending to any mid-to-lower wall and flooring tasks with ease. DeWalt have included the same incredible SHOCKS Active Vibration Control for added stability while in use, and the 60V MAX battery line is capable of delivering all-day performance and unrivaled power. The new 60V MAX 38lbs. Cordless 1-⅛ HEX Breaker Hammer releases in July 2023.
10 Gallon Dust Extractor (DWV015)
DeWalt’s new dust collection solution is one to keep your eye on should you find yourself in the market for a new dust extractor; it uses an automatic filter cleaning process to keep it’s HEPA filter as clear as possible throughout the filter’s life, and complies with all currently updated OSHA dust containment requirements. For maximum protection, be sure to grab some new fleece vacuum bags and a 99.97% HEPA filter, as well as DeWalt’s optional Storage Rack to add your 10 Gallon Dust Extractor to your TOUGHSYSTEM storage stack, giving you freedom of movement while using the dust extractor as well as reducing the amount of trips you’d need to take back and forth to grab tools and accessories. Be sure to grab your 10 Gallon Dust Extractor when it releases in March 2023!
60V MAX 7 – 9 Inch Large Angle Grinder (DCG460)
Next up on our list is the new Large Angle Grinder, DeWalt’s first ever cordless offering in the large angle grinder market! DeWalt knows grinders like Robin Williams’ character Fender in the 2005 hit film Robots knows the back of his red robotic hand (incredibly well, for the uninitiated), and they’ve included a plethora of features in this latest release. The new No-Volt Switch protects both the tool and the user in the case of accidental power loss, and prevents the tool from immediately restarting once power is restored, and DeWalt have also included a Kickback Brake to bring the grinding wheel to a full halt as soon as kickback is detected in use, as well as their E-CLUTCH System to cut power to the motor of the tool as soon as a pinch or stall is detected. Delivering up to 2800 Max Watts Out, or MWO on DeWalt’s phenomenal brushless motor technology, the new 60V MAX Large Angle Grinder is sure to be a smash hit when it releases in June 2023.
PURE220+ Premium Epoxy Anchor (DFC114110, DFC114121)
The penultimate item in our list, DeWalt’s all-new PURE220+ Premium Epoxy Anchor is an incredibly powerful 1:1 chemical anchor, and is the first chemical anchor to carry a diamond core drilled hole approval for both cracked and uncracked concrete. Made in the United States using materials from all over the globe, this new anchoring epoxy will not require any roughening pre-installation, saving you time while on the job. The PURE220+ epoxy is a part of DeWalt’s DUSTX+ line, which allows the epoxy to pair perfectly with a plethora of DeWalt solutions, including the aforementioned DWV015 Dust Extractor, and the easy-to-dispense formula allows for easier dispensation in cold weather using DeWalt’s 20V MAX cordless or manual dispensing options. The new PURE220+ Premium Epoxy Anchor will release in March 2023.
TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 Dual Port Charger (DWHT08050)
DeWalt’s click-together storage system is called TOUGH for a reason; it holds up incredibly well in the roughest of jobsite conditions, and this new addition to their line is no exception. Able to hold up to twelve 20V MAX and FLEXVOLT 20V/60V MAX batteries while at the same time charging two separate ports for simultaneous battery charging as well as two additional USB ports for charging personal electronics, DeWalt’s all-new TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 Dual Port Charger snaps wherever you’d like it to be in your TOUGHSYSTEM stack, and begins charging devices as soon as the lid is closed to ensure your devices and batteries are protected while you’re out in the elements. A built-in fan provides cooling to the devices while they’re charging, ensuring constant airflow and preventing devices from overheating while charging. The new TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 Dual Port Charger drops in February 2023.
