The DeWalt FLEXVOLT Advantage family consistently delivers maximum performance with their lightweight yet powerful convertible tools. To highlight how impressive FLEXVOLT Advantage really is, we took a deep dive look at one of their smaller cordless angle grinders that packs a major punch–The 20V MAX 4-1/2”-5” FLEXVOLT Advantage Brushless Cordless Paddle Switch Angle Grinder (DCG416), with the battery life to last almost as long as it takes to say it’s full name out loud. It also has great safety features that are on par with the quality standards that DeWalt sets for all their tools.

The DeWalt 20V MAX Angle Grinder easily

What is the FLEXVOLT Advantage?

This grinder is a FLEXVOLT Advantage tool, meaning it’s dually compatible with all DeWalt 20V MAX and 60V FLEXVOLT Batteries. Something to note, though, is that the grinder offers up to 54% more power when paired with the FLEXVOLT battery versus with the standard 20V MAX battery. This is what’s great about the FLEXVOLT Advantage tools, they are 20V tools that are designed to also be compatible in a unique way with FLEXVOLT batteries for added power–essentially converting a 20V tool to 60V. The brushless motor on this grinder delivers 1,550 max watts out and up to 9,000 rpm. It is also lighter than other DeWalt angle grinders, such as the DCG418B, and has a more comfortable hold. The side handle can be installed to either side to allow for easy use when cutting from the top down or horizontally. DeWalt offers 1 year of free service as well as a 3-year limited warranty to protect this tool from any possible damages.

DeWalt’s Safety Features Keep You In Control

The 20V MAX Angle Grinder is also part of the Perform and Protect product line from DeWalt, which means it offers you more control in a bind-up situation than standard clutches and side handles provide. It does this with the Kickback Brake that engages with maximum force to quickly stop the wheel and shut off the grinder when a bind-up occurs. The E-Clutch then shuts down the motor in under 1/10th of a second when a pinch or stall is detected, and the E-Switch Protection requires the trigger switch to be turned off and back on again in the event of a power outage or other unexpected shutdown in order to start back up again.

This grinder can also be connected to the Tool Connect Site Manager app with a Tool Connect Chip to easily manage your assets on the jobsite. This allows for total jobsite visibility by managing and tracking inventory for tools that are not Bluetooth-enabled.
