More news on the new power tools coming your way in 2013 from DeWalt, this time we're looking at a new impact driver and dust extractor.
DeWalt DCF813S2‐GB (link to follow!)
DeWalt has been innovating in the world of impact drivers for a while now, and this update from the power tool giant continues that trend.
Running off DeWalt's XR li-ion batteries, offering a capacity of 1.5Ah at 10.8v, here's the spec we have so far;
- compact, ergonomic design
- despite its small size it packs an awesome 130Nm of torque
- the gearing is all metal, meaning longer tool life and better transmission of power (see our comment about the 130Nm of torque!)
- tool life is also increased thanks to the aluminium front housing which provides for greater heat dispersion
- greater control over the speed of the motor is offered via a parabolic switch*
- 3 LED halo ring will light up even the darkest corners of the jobsite
*the advantage of a parabolic switch is the shape of the switch's profile. This allows you greater control over the power tool when operated at slower speeds
We all know that dust is a big issue on all jobsites, not just in schools or hospitals. The HSE is clamping down on dust outputs and you need to be equipped on the jobsite to meet these standards, but more importantly, to keep yourself safe.
DeWalt is taking this issue seriously and has launched a brand new dust extractor, the Dewalt DWV902M, click the link to buy.
The important thing for you guys is a single letter: "M". "M", like the fabled M from the world of James Bond, represents the provision of safety-through-gadgetery.
M-Class dust extractors feature technology that can remove dust from your working environment so efficiently that there's no dust particle greater than 0.1milligrams per cubic metre of air. Dust class M is a Medium hazardous rating, which determines the construction and performance of the dust extraction unit.
In other words, to keep yourself safe and to comply with European guidelines (see the EN 60335-2-69 standard), you're going to need an M-Class dust extractor.
Here's the other spec you need to know about:
- constant suction power even with the finest concrete and wood dust
- the filter is automatically cleaned every 15 seconds reducing filter clogging and delivering constant air flow
- wet and dry pick upwith variable suction control allows for the reduction of suction power if required
- the nose features DeWalt's "AirLock" for a tighter, more durable connection
So that's our round-up of some of DeWalt's new tools for 2013, as unearthed by our Power Tool Spy. Watch this space for more news as the weeks progress!
