What do you think that Dewalt will come out with in 2019?
Shown above are the new Dewalt brushless cordless woodworking tools – a router, jigsaws, and a sander. All but maybe the router are available now, with the router expected to ship maybe this month or next.
I would guess that Dewalt will continue along these lines, producing more 20V Max brushless power tools. For example, maybe we’re due to see a compact Dewalt circular saw for cutting flooring, trim, and other such materials?
What cordless tools do you want Dewalt to come out with in 2019?
Me? I’m waiting for a FlexVolt 120V Max 10″ portable table saw with AC adapter, or a USA version of their FlexVolt 10″ miter saw. Not because I want them personally, but because I think it will be the next step forward in the very competitive cordless power tool industry.
The Dewalt FlexVolt battery system is now 2.5 years old, and with other brands having closed the performance gap, Dewalt could and should have something up their sleeve to push things forward a little further. I just can’t put my finger on what that could be. I know that readers have been asking for a 60V Max AC adapter, but I’m not sure that’s something they’re willing to do.
Honestly, I’m also really hoping that Dewalt breaths new life into their 12V Max cordless power tool platform. With Stanley Black & Decker sure to launch a new Craftsman 12V Max cordless power tool lineup, maybe that will lower some of the costs related to developing new and upgraded Dewalt tools.
So, what new Dewalt cordless power tools do you want to see or think we’ll see this year?
Id love to see expansion into the 12v system as well, even though you can get some unique stuff from Mac that Dewalt doesnt have. Its just alot more expensive. M12 just kills them though in offerings.
Maybe some new toughsystem offerings as well
Happy New Year my fellow craftsmen (& women). I agree, Red is running away with the smaller, handier, compact for tight spaces market. M-12s are great!
Yes, Iwas a loyal, nothing but DeWalt until I was surprised by family (who know my allegiances) with a couple of M-12s. Well, I tried the Stubby 3/8 Impact on a recent automotive project and was more than pleased. DeWalt, where are you? The smae with the 3/8 Brushless Ratchet…same project. Come on DeWalt, the competition is running away with innovation. I’m still a loyal, die hard Black and Gold preferred user but you gotta give it to Red. I pray Dewalt hurrys up with a 20V Brushless trim saw in the 5 3/8 inch range. Several colleagues and myself have met at HD on more than one occasion to fondle Reds M-12 trim saw. It is sweet! Honestly, both companies produce quality battery driven offerings. It just seems to many consumers that Red is beating B&G to the market place with new offerings.
I am HUGE on the Trim Saw idea-been waiting on that for quite some time…
4 years ago, I switched careers from salesman to hands-on and didn’t own even a hammer. So my journey began buying tools. I NOW own 11 FlexVolt tools alone and stick with DeWalt and Ridgid.
Back when I began, I saw a Christmas special @ Sam’s Club for a Black and Decker Matrix 5-Tool combo kit and got it. It was against my brother’s (a carpenter) advice because he told me that tools like that won’t hold up in the long run.
I then noticed the Craftsman Bolt On and further discovered that the heads are interchangeable with the Matrix and vice versa. I have all 14 heads and enjoy it at times, but I find myself using that trim saw more than anything else, hands-down. Really don’t use anything else in the set. Just holding onto it as I see the price go up and up due to it being discontinued.
I do restoration (water/fire/mold/sewer) and there are times that I come across a hardwood floor that is warped and as a side note, THAT is where the FlexVolt Circular Saw impresses the hell out of me. Never binds up. But DARE I try the same thing with that little trim saw?
I would LOVE to see a DeWalt version of it. The one I have?
1.) No depth adjustment.
2.) No Miter adjustment.
3.) No vacuum port.
4.) Not Brushless.
Kobalt recently came out with a 4 inch 24 Volt Brushless version of the tool, and I’m so amped up about it that I’m going to give it a try. Heard alot of great things about their 24 Volt lineup and will probably get their Oscillating Tool as well, albeit the DeWalt one I have is PERFECT.
But yeah, if there was one tool that I would pray for DeWalt to release, it would be a trim saw in the 4 inch range. Perhaps 4-1/2? And if there is a god, 60 (56) volts would make me the happiest man on earth.
DeWalt needs a flexvolt pole chainsaw
My ex-compatriots in the plumbing business bought into M12 and then moved into Milwaukee M18 – because Milwaukee offered of plumbing-specific tools – ahead of their competition. Dewalt – was a bit late to the party – but has started – and probably has a market for other tools in this area. Maybe a cordless water pump- capable of quickly pumping out a 80-100 gallon water heater might be an example. More capable (than their current offerings) sewer and drain cleaning tools would also be welcome. How about using their flexvolt technology to build a clamp-on “soldering iron” for sweating fittings in tight areas where using a torch is a hazard? Flexvolt might also be used to power better lighting solutions.
I like this idea! I’d probably buy a cordless transfer pump that could handle a wider variety of liquids including gasoline and more viscous materials.
I just checked and Ryobi and Milwaukee both make transfer pumps already, so…hurry up DeWalt!
Building a pump that can handle both viscous and volatile liquid is a challenge. It is also possible that the manufacturers would not want to place their imprimatur on an electric gasoline pump to be sold to the general public. They might think that liability issues would abound.
Lifting volatile liquids can also be a problem for pumps – gasoline’s vapor pressure (while it can be a bit variable) can have an effect on NPSHA – and evaporation of the gasoline you are tying to pump can result in cavitation. I guess you could easily build a pump to sit on the ground and (with flooded suction) transfer gasoline out of your gas tank. But if you want a pump to sit at ground level and transfer gasoline up and out of an underground storage tank – that is a challenge.
Amen, I would buy a transfer pump too. Come on Dewalt step up!
I am trying to stay with my dewalt tools but Red is making it harder all the time.
the TSTAK vacuum DCV586 to be released soon
the ds295 3 drawer tough system is avail. in europe
I would like to see:
a cordless heating gun
a cordless joiner
a cordless staple gun
a cordless 21 gage nailer
a cordless soldering gun
a cordless ratchet
of course prio1 flexvolt table saw with AC adaptor, as mentionen
230mm flexvolt grinder
cordless small shears
cordless flex. / pole hedge trimmer (like in 40v max OPE)
cordless trimmer with “state of the art” feeder (the exist. trimmer is ok, but the feeder is poor)
2-3 new style “boxes” , one also wall mount (bins)
Would like to see a flex volt ice fishing auger.
What do you mean by cordless joiner? They already have the DCP580 cordless planer. Do you mean a biscuit/plate joiner?
I would like the biscuit joiner. I had an 18v biscuit joiner in the 90s and really liked it but it needed more power. Today’s tech would easily solve that. I’m not sure the biscuit joiner is popular enough today for them to spend any resources on it though.
I wish they would come out with a Flexvolt Keurig.
A cordless ratchet already exists under the Mac label with dewalt 12 v Batteries
But at a crazy $240 bare tool price. I have no idea if it is more comprable to the Milwaukee standard M12 ratchet or the Fuel model, but either way it is $140 or $90 more than Milwaukee.
The Mac unit looks nice, but not that that price nice. I see too many tech’s that have a full lineup of M12 tools. It seems Dewalt will have some serious marketing to do if they are going to get people to switch.
theres quite a few tools that use the 12v dewalt batteries, but it doesnt make em dewalt tools.
I think we should not think of a cordless Heat Gun, that tool would need a lot of energy and battery would die in a few minutes, if in the future they can make a 20Ah small batteries maybe yes, that tool would be OK, I have used 5Ah batteries with a cordless grinder to cut metal and it has last just 5 minutes maximum, so I have given up with cordless grinder for cutting metal, I would never plan my work for cutting metal with a cordless grinder and 5Ah battery, 12Ah batteries are really bulky also, I would use Flexvolt batteries with the tools that I am not going to hold in my hand, like mitre saw, table saw, vacuum cleaner, lights, fan, table tile saw, metal chop saw and any other tools that are used for metal cutting or grinding process, but with other tools I prefer 20V and 12V batteries.
DeWALT has already had cordless 14.4V and 18V joiner (which is very difficult to google and find photos of them even, unless someone puts one to sell on eBay) they just have to update it for new battery platform which is much easier than developing new tools.
12V cordless stapler would be a nice tool.
18V soldering gun would be the best tool of 2019….
You don’t need DeWALT to make a cordless ratchet, Facom already has one which works with DeWALT batteries.
They will definitely come up with a Flexvolt 230mm/9″ cordless grinder and I am sure it is going to be in 2019, others did and DeWALT would not wait more not making an important tool in cordless version, we will see…
I doubt DeWALT will make a 60V AC adapter soon, this is out of the horizon of business way of thinking, at least as a short term plan in not and can’t be. If you just think deeply about what could have been made by now and has not been, you will get the answer very quickly. So I doubt we will not see an AC adapter for 60V tools at least for 5 years, we will see this as well!
Yes, cordless small sears for gardeners would be a nice tool.
Surprise ‘hit’ of 2018 for me was the little inflator. That thing is a gem. I’m still waiting to pick up the couple of 20V disc sanders I ordered.
In 2019, I’d love to see a 12V or 20V stapler (T50 type not narrow crown) and a 20V belt sander (or possibly 60V if they could manage this while still making in ergonomic).
DItto on the Flexvolt 120V Max table saw capable of using same 120V adapter (DCA120) as my Flexvolt 12″ 790 miter saw. Second option, a 60V adaptor…although that would be either heavier and/or more expensive than the simple 120V adapter, due to need to drop the voltage.
Also, an AC option for the Dewalt DCL079 tripod light at minimum. (Love the RED light similar to DCL079, only with AC option and built-in charger….and three part LED head. )
I would like to see a 1/4 & 3/8″ 12 or 20v ratchet and a 10″ 20/60v miter saw, I have the 120v flexvolt 12″ and the 7 1/4 )” 20v , the 120v is kind of a pain to lug around and the 7 1/4 has just a hair too small cutting capacity.
I strongly considered getting into the FlexVolt stuff, and probably would have if they made more tools 120 with a wall adapter option. I considered a flexvolt miter and table saw, but when I realized the table saw was only 60v, didn’t have a 10″ blade, and wasn’t capable of being plugged into the wall, I just abandoned the idea completely and bought a standard miter saw and table saw.
The ability to use cordless tools in a corded capacity as needed really appeals to me. I don’t know that it’s really that beneficial in real world use, but that doesn’t make me want it any less.
If I were you I’d strongly consider Metabo HPT’s MultiVolt system.
Thanks Aaron. I’ve looked into it a bit and I like what I see, especially the Multi Volt AC/DC wall adapter.
I’m heavily invested in Makita LXT at this point, and I’ve bought stationary standard tools to fill the gap. I’m probably set for a generation.
I’m waiting for the first price drop on that barrel grip jig saw. Otherwise I might buy something else (the bosch corded device it high on my list too) but
I too would like to see the 10 inch mitre saw as I’ve about talked myself into that size of slider for use. but I’d want it to still have the AC adapter ability and I bet it won’t
I’d like to see the cordless heatgun I could use that.
Cordless solder I don’t know but like the guy above size a clamp on fitting thing for plumbers might be that niche tool that also sells well.
I don’t know if they have a cordless belt sander but that might should happen.
Flexvolt large router.
cordless ratchet but I suspect that will always be a MAC tool – but I want to see one on the 20V line.
I want every tool to be AC/DC powered. If they can do it in a laptop or a phone, they can do it in a tool.
The reason they don’t is they’d lose money on battery sales. Some company will take the plunge to gain sales and the rest will fall in line.
The new metabo htp 36v tools have that
I recall hearing multiple times that the 60v adapter was confirmed.
my issue is how long is the cord between the converter brick to the battery replacement connection. It needs to be at least 8ft if not more to be comfortable to use. That brick is going to be as heavier than a laptop module due to the current throughput need.
By the time I buy the tool and a battery or 2 – I have all I need for a while. There’s only a hand full of tools I want corded anyway these days and I might as well just buy the corded versions. Grinders fit that need as do sanders. but drills, drivers even recip saws, no thanks.
Some tools like the jigsaw are better balanced with a battery. I can see them making the ‘brick’ the same size/shape as the battery and just have a long cord coming out of it.
Though having the brick in the middle of the cord has some appeal since the tool is lighter in your hand.
Waiting for flexvolt torque wrench, and an upgraded recip. I love the gen 1 I have, but 4 position blade should have been on it, no question. Other than that, I’m still 3 tools behind on my wishlist of what’s already out; the gen 2 stud/joist drill, the 13.3j sds max, and the 61″ piano or 60″ tough box. I’ve been very pleased with DeWalt the last couple years. Feels like their feeling competitive again lol
What is the gen 2 stud/joist drill?
New..dcd470 looks like a milwaukee hole hog
Bigger than I thought from release pictures. TIA, I think, has footage from stafda and it’s a monster. Same vid with the new mud mixer.
Coil nailer. Lets save some roofers lives without all the hoses or cords.
Would be way too heavy
I would like to see a cordless heat gun and belt sander, would be useful in a lot of instances.
Heat gun is coming. There are photos of it from a recent show.
x2 for the Heat gun. Plus cordless glue gun, single pod coffeemaker, 60v vacuum.
Oh, coffee maker! Definitely!
How about a flexvolt roofing gun that got them in framing an in finshing guns so let’s get a new roofing gun that would be nice
Next gen 692 nailer is needed…
10″ sliding compound mitre saw..( lighter)
Mechanics tools in the 12v line
Really don’t know why a 10″ table saw is needed..the 8 1/4 ” does everything you could want.
Better small lighting like USB or M12 … On
I like the sounds of a 10″ with an AC adapter so I could eliminate the need for my current tablesaw. The 8″ sounds competent enough as a jobsite saw, but I don’t have a very large collection of flexvolt batteries to avoid the risk of running out of power and don’t want to cut corners on the cutting capacity either.
Sales guy showed me that they changed the DCN692 quietly at the end of last year. He did a side by side and the difference is night and day (it actually sinks the nails now). The upgraded model has the switch for bump down by the battery like the new plastic framer… not sure why they didnt change model numbers.
They usually change the type # on smaller upgrades
I can’t for the life of me understand why DeWalt blew off their 12v platform. Their ergonomics were the best I’ve ever seen in a 12v line. Bizarre.
They haven’t blown it off, really. Just went the instrumentation route. Plenty of lasers and inspection equipment. I bet they make a good deal of money off of it, hence why that’s what they’ve persisted in releasing. There’s a lot of exclusive 12v tools in yellow, but everyone wants to to see something akin to Milwaukee’s (impressive) core tool explosion. Just because you don’t use it, doesn’t mean there’s nothing available ?
Aaron , For me I got rid of my 12v Dewalt stuff because I like the smaller roundish battery of Milwaukee much better and I think most of us thought that way. I’m a Dewalt man but I love my m12 tools. Once you try them you will think the same. ?
It may all depend on your hand size. I like the M12 tools quite a bit and how they fit my hands. I’ve heard others opine that they like the ergonomics of the Bosch (10.8 aka 12V ) tools better. My wife doesn’t like how the M12 tools fit in her hands – but likes Makita’s 12V CXT tools – that have slide inn battery packs – perhaps making the handles a bit slimmer or more contoured.
I’d agree. I have small hands and I hate the grip of the M12 line. The M18 is actually a lot more comfortable as it doesn’t stick out on 3 sides.
I have tried them, bought into M12 and HATE the ergonomics. They are not much smaller if at all in some cases then similar 18/20v. Really, really wish I had gone with Bosch M12 instead.
I would expect an update to their cordless framing nailer. I still don’t understand why they don’t have a 6.5” brushless circular saw, so maybe one of those. I expect some new hand tools as a result of the craftsman buyout, maybe some new lighting offerings to compete with Milwaukee more in that area, and some more tstak/toughsystem expansion as well.
Why would they come out with a brushless 6.5″ circular saw?
There’s a brushed 6.5″, a brushless 7.25″ and a flexvolt 7.25″. I don’t see the need to add a model between the 6.5 brushed and 7.25 brushless, but maybe I’m missing the point of having a smaller brushless saw?
An update to the 6.5 in brushless would be welcome to many. Big point of pride in my brushed one is just the battery life doing light rough cuts all day. Form setting and the like. I imagine a brushless variant would further exceed what I already like about my current one.
Depends of the orientation they do it in. Some may prefer opposite (whatever you consider it) of what the Flexvolt 7-1/4″ is.
I would love for tool companies to release a 7-1/4″ in both right & left blade options, forget 6-1/2″ even exists . If 6-1/2″ blades were priced relative to 7-1/4″ & more readily available, I would re-consider wanting a 6-1/2″.
Flexvolt has a left and right 7.25″, I own the left, worm style, so clearly that plus my 6.5″ shows my desire for a blade left 6.5″ update lol I’ve been fortunate to not have any trouble sourcing the blade size locally as well. Though it’s been awhile, I don’t recall the price being unreasonable for the 6.5″ around Franklin hardware. I see your point, though.
Brushless is significantly more powerful than brushed, it would basically render the brushed one obsolete, they are lightweight, powerful, usually blade left (many people prefer this) and when dealing with dimensional lumber no real difference in cut depth from a 7 1/4” blade. If you’re cutting all day, I’d much rather do that, and only grab a worm drive or use a miter saw for deeper cuts. I don’t do a ton of framing, but I haven’t had a 7 1/4” or worm drive in over 4 years and haven’t missed it one bit. I can do so much work out of position with my Milwaukee 6.5 brushless it’s crazy. Dewalts brushes model is just underpowered to make it very useable. Makita has one that is very popular and they have their blade-right subcompact that is even smaller, but with the same blade size and depth of cut. It’s a very popular size
A 60v power head for weedeator, pole saw, and all the other stuff for 2stroke power heads like makita has now!
I had the old Dewalt 18 volt platform. And they worked ok but heavy and batteries were overpriced. I gave them away. I got the Milwaukee 12 volt line. And there just right. They work well. Dewalt could learn from them.
I want them to make a 20V pressure washer. Like the Worx one, but heavier duty. Maybe even a 60V one.
I’d love a pressure washer too. I didn’t know about the Worx hydroshot – looked it up after your comment. That’s neat! I would definitely use that after a dirt bike race – it much easier to clean a bike when the mud hasn’t yet dried.
Yeah I think it would be very handy. So many outdoor activities and job site tasks I can imagine a use for.
Europe even has some larger cordless pressure washers, but we haven’t gotten them over here yet. The ryobi 36V (40V here) looks particularly interesting, supposed to be real useable pressure, my problem with the worx is while it’s good as a fairly high pressure hose and can draft, it really wasn’t a good pressure washer, because the pressure was not great.
Yes yes yes yes! Flex volt with good pressure. Either handheld or trolley style. Would buy immediately
Yeah 60V if it’s needed for good pressure. I’d prefer handheld.
Hydraulic “impact” driver like the Milwaukee Surge. We switched to Milwaukee because the Surge tools are quieter, but I’d rather use DeWalt.
Hope to see a bigger expansion in their Flexvolt line up this year. I am pretty excited about the new 60v 5000 lumen erea work light that’s coming out and maybe the dust vac/shop vac. There is a bunch of stuff I’d like to have though, like a Dewalt Flexvolt cordless pressure washer with tank on top for use away from a water source. A Flexvolt weed wacker that uses attachments like ryobi’s, an 18″ Flexvolt chainsaw with a tough blade tensioner like Husqvarna ect. and a smaller Flexvolt miter saw. And
a Flexvolt side walk edger. I’d also like to see a smaller light weight 60v mower. If I could get all this I’d through all my 40v Kobalt and 40v ryobi stuff in a yard sale ?
Cordless sheet sander would be nice. I personally don’t use them but it would be handy to have a cordless one.
I’d like to see the 12v line come back but I’m pretty sure it’s dead.
Where can I find those clamps in the picture?
A lot of Dewalt clamps are available now at Home Depot.
They started appearing last year – https://toolguyd.com/new-dewalt-clamps/
Not those clamps, I’ve looked. Tool Guyd was where I first saw them but no info on them was on the site. Anywhere else Tool Guyd? Bar clamp with large clamp pads and adjustable.
It looks like these are the ones in the image – Dewalt 6-inch bar clamp.
I almost exclusively use flexvolt tools for custom home building. The two things I would like to see is the AC adapter for the cordless table saw and better cold weather performance of the batteries. When the temp drops below 25 the flexvolt batteries take forever to charge. This is pretty significant negative for the climate I live in.
Gotta keep any line of batteries warm…we have a ” hot box ” in the trailer and on site.
Basically , three foam insulation sides and a door with a small heater….all day any temp no problem s..and charge overnight in a warm box……
I am not sure these are likely, but I would like:
60v “powerhead” that fits conventional trimmer attachments.
60v or 120v power assist push mower.
I have the DeWalt Power Station, eliminating the need for a 10″ table saw for me, but I would like them to release one to prove it is possible. I frequently use the power station now to run the 735 planer, amazing to see that thing thickness wide cherry boards using batteries.
(I’d be so in for the Dewalt 60 volt weed eater power head that uses the conventional attachments!)
I hope it does come out. I am counting the moments until I can move on from my four stroke gas trimmer.
I am worried there are tools not being released because of low run time leading to angry new users, but I have so many batteries now low run time would not be an issue to me.
We need Flexvolt at Lowes ASAP too. Don’t have a Home Depot near by.
I too was hoping for more and better 60v Dewalt OPE because I have had good experiences with their 40v string trimmer and then the 60v chainsaw and blower. With good power and run time from all of these I was expecting a 60v lawn mower to perform well also. Well, the 60v lawn mower never materialized and the 40v and 20v mowers were getting such bad reviews that I jumped to EGO equipment with no regrets. The EGO lineup is more extensive than either Dewalt or Milwaukee and so far the quality and performance seems second to none.
yeah that’s a good point – DeWalt Flexvolt OPE would make me move away from my Echo 58V system. why you ask, while I love my trimmer I’ve had bad luck with the hedge trimmer and customer service sucks.
How about a cordless 23 gauge pin nailer?? Im a trim guy and i had to buy a ryobi because dewalt does not make one!!! What a wonderful tool it is too! All my other cordless tools are dewalt. Cordless belt sander, definitely a good idea!!!
I would pick up the compact router and jigsaw but on federal furlough right now so it’s just on my wish list.
That sucks. Well at least you know your checks won’t bounce when they finally arrive.
Can you bill them for any personal otherwise unneeded interest costs?
(Oh wait. Hmmm.)
If you guys would just end your strike…../s
I hope you’re kidding, but whether you are or not, I have to say the following for anyone who takes your comment seriously. They’re NOT on strike, they’re on forced leave because the federal budget hasn’t been approved yet, and so money’s not available to pay them yet. Because… NO POLITICS.
The “/s” means it’s a sarcastic comment. There are some people that (incorrectly) believe that they’re striking. By stating that they should end their strike and putting an “/s” at the end; I was showing that I’m aware that they’re not on strike and the people that are implying that it is a strike are absurd.
I thought it could have been a squiggle smiley (tongue in cheek?), but had to respond in such a manner anyway, for those that might think you were serious.
I don’t know that it will ever happen, but I’d love a brushless 20v XR miter saw. The brushed 7 1/4″ DCS361 is a great little saw, but I think it would benefit from a brushless motor. I think it’s logical to up it size slightly and make it either 8 1/4″ or possibly even 10″. I know everyone wants a 60v or 120v FLEXVOLT 10″ miter saw, but it will be nearly as hefty and costly as the existing 120v FLEXVOLT 12″ saw. As a self employed crafts/furniture maker, I’d rather have a smaller, lighter, cheaper 20v. With that said, if they make a 60V 10″ miter saw, I would buy it.
I too would be in for a Flexvolt 60v sliding miter saw like they have over seas. Looked into buying one off eBay but after shipping it was way to much money. I would love to stay with just the Dewalt brand platform, if they’d make more variety. Btw they should come out with “Craftsman professional” and use the the powered by Dewalt like they did on Mac 20v tools. Tool makers forget that everyone one on the job site wants high quality tools, but like different brands so their tools don’t mistakenly get mixed up with the other workers. Hope “Stanly black&Decker” read this. It not to late to fix Craftsman!
I also looked into buying the overseas FLEXVOLT 10″ saw, definitely not worth the shipping price. And it’s not really a deal breaker, but it’s kinda ugly compared to our stateside cordless saws.
You missed out on the Rigid sliding 7.25 miter. That thing is awesome!
You aren’t the only one! I already have the big 12” FlexVolt slider, I have no need for a 10”; it would be nearly as big. What I really want is a light, portable, brushless 20v miter.
I’m going with the absurd, wishful rainbow hope, Dewalt pioneers a universal battery platform, partnering with all other manufacturers so that batteries are no longer brand specific.
I bought an adapter on ebay where my dewalt 20v batteries fit any M18 tool. Co worker got the makita corless router so bought the adapter so that we can run dewalt batteries on it.
Ha! Having all brands under the SBD umbrella use the same battery would be a start!
It’s Puff PUff give man, you’re screwing up the rotation.
Now if SBD could get their game together and make all the 20V batteries compatible across the board that would be nice. I’d buy that workx pressure washer device knowing I could run it on my dewalt batteries. but I know I can’t – well not without making a creative adapter.
I’d be fine with just that – SBD common battery.
I would like to see a 20v Dewalt polesaw, since I have committed to the system.
Absolutely on the pressure washer. Would love a Flexvolt one that is small enough, with about 1600 PSI that would fit traveling in my RV. Please come out with compact one.
I too kind of wish DeWalt would put some more 12v Max tools out, but I think they pretty much decided to focus on the 20v and Flexvolt for tools. Honestly, I can see why, since my 12v Max tools aren’t any smaller than the newer 20v Max stuff, and even my (non-Fuel) M12 impact is bigger than the M18 One Key. Even so, Milwaukee has shown that technology can be applied to newer tools to keep the lower voltage systems relevant.
As they say: “horses for courses”.
In our cabinet business we had installers who liked the smaller size of many M12 tools. I think the Bosch Flex Clik would work well for them too.
In our plumbing business – plumbers might use an M12 Hackzall under the sink – but a M18 super hole hawg was the tool of choice using big selfeed bits to drill clearance holes.
I am patiently waiting on the cordless magbase drill. Milwaukee has one out already. It works very nice, just not black and yellow like everything else I own. Please DeWalt,come out with one this year
I’ve been praying for this since 2014 lol is that fuel still North of $2k?
No. Under a grand now
It just is not right that Home Depot obviously had the clout to extend their “only six months” exclusively for flexvolt tools, to lock out Lowe’s from getting any flexvolt tools. Lowe’s has the 40 volt comercial chainsaw I noticed. Lou.
Well I think it hurts the Flexvolt line. Allot places only have a lowes. Wonder if lowes will ever get in on Flexvolt? ? Lowes lacks varify! They used to have Milwaukee and makita, seems to me lowes is loosing money by not having them too.
TTI went exclusive 4 or 5 years ago (or more) w/ HD for MKE as the only big box retailer who sells MKE, it was a smart move for HD since they also sell the US exclusive Ryobi & Ridgid.
TTI provides a lot of support in store support w/ this relationship.
I would like to see a ratchet. Either 12v or a right angle impact wrench at 20v.
I’d love to see a 20v knock out set for electricians.
Full scale flex volt router.
I also want them to make the gang box inner lid storage available to purchase!!
Yes. Can’t find it anywhere to purchase
That sucks. I’m currently saving for the 60″, a castor set, those lid storages, and two more open top handled boxes for one big purchase lol guess it may well end up being spread out. What I’d really love to see is something oem to store or hang my dolly with it.
Yea the gang boxes are nice!! I have a 48”. Good idea on the hanger as I lock chain mine to the side.
Would love to see a backpack vacuum similar to the one Milwaukee just released. Would be perfect for the tracksaw and new cordless Sanders!
I’ll second that… make it 120V and under 80dB
I too would like to see a small 12v circular saw and some upgraded batteries like a 12v 3amp. I would also definitely like to see brushless 12v drills and saws. Another thing id like is a box light like the dc020 but with more lumens and leds and that accept s 20v or flexvolt batteries. Maybe a 8v drill that isn’t gyroscopic. Im in the hvac field so to me compact is a must when your carrying tool in an attic. A 12v tool that would accept hacksaw blades would be cool too.
An updated impact like the hitachi triple hammer would be nice.
A T50 style stapler would be awesome and it doesn’t seem like a stretch since they released the electricians’ stapler.
Have the worx hydroshot. I use it all the time. Spraying out drywall pans, cleaning out my wet saw it’s on the job site with me all the time. I carry a 5 gallon jug in my truck. By the way I had a couple hours to kill one Friday afternoon so I converted mine to dewalt batteries. Works awesome!!
How’d you do it?? Is it a matter of carving away at the plastic mount or did you build an adapter?
-20V BL Biscuit joiner,
-Dualpack 20V BL W/D vac update with higher suction and longer runtime (blower feature not needed),
-Dualpack 20/60v Tough Sys BL Vac,
-Newer 20V impact that doesn’t burn up,
-20V BL 1/4 sheet sander,
-20V or 60V BL Belt sander kinda designed like the tracksaw battery on top,
-REDESIGNED FLEXVOLT CHAINSAW 16-18″ bar with metal fasteners and kickback spike
-more updated led 20V lights, shorter and lighter weight tower.
-Universal 12/20V BL hammer vac that works on all hammer drills via the grip collar.
-15Ahr FlexVolt packs
-Updated 20V BL 7-1/4 miter saw
Never heard of an 887 burning up…we have 8 and never had a problem…only the new Milwaukee 2853 tops it …
Joe, have you not seen VCG constructions videos ???
That’s hilarious….the biggest hack on the planet. He Actually hangs wallpaper and stains cement floors for a living. He only owned old Nicad dewalt tools before his channel, according to himself.
…Then Milwaukee found him and they give him tons of free tools . Now he’s a Milwaukee lover and bashes dewalt because they don’t give him free tools.
………Funny that 887 has been out for 4 yrs and not one other person, review or video shows that impact smoking, …it is praised by every legit tool review and even now it will place in the top 3 of test shown on video….. It took Milwaukee until gen 3 to beat it .
….. personally it’s time to upgrade it and the new Makita (td171)is less powerful but much smoother and precise. Makita makes great impacts.
… The only drills/impacts that are heating
up are the gen 3 Milwaukee, which I also own…
….Vcg couldn’t review a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and get it right…..
I use to watch before but gave up after it started too get stupid…
Amen on wanting the 12v range to be expanded. Recently I’ve been making a huge amount of use of the 12v screwdriver, because of size and weight – so much easier to carry around a light tool when walking across large sites, every gram less makes a difference.
of all things, i would like to see, a flex-volt stand up vacuum cleaner
there are many commercial applications where having a vac like this
would be a great help
I’d like to see DeWalt (or any manufacturer) come out with a serious cordless vacuum with real suction. Nothing on the market today can compete with corded models.
I’d also love a cordless DeWalt biscuit joiner. Makita’s lacks power and is old technology.
And I certainly wouldn’t mind a Dewalt cordless coffee maker.
Yes, I would be in for a nice 12 gal. 60v Dewalt shop vac. Like a large wet and dry.
I an interested in the 60v hepa vacuum / dust extracter though that should be out soon.
They need to step up there game now that they’re done destroying craftsman, lol
Another nodd on the vaccum. Honestly, the 20v vac (even with the plug in) is pretty gutless. At least give me some guts when you plug in!!!!
A vac for the tough box.
Having just spent over 1K in red tools, there just isn’t much as far as speciality tools in the blue line, especially when it comes to plumbing related.
Dewalt only just came out with a propex and propress units recently, and they are all on the 20V line-. Its very far behind the “curve” as to time tested in the field.
Was hard to go dewalt, since I was also in the 12v milwaukee line.
The pole saw is a great idea.
At this point any 15 amp tool can be powered by flexvolt batteries. How about something like this, or an even larger version with three flexvolt batteries?
Maybe not this year, but soon anything that is powered by a honda gx160 or 200 engine will have a battery only version, how about a larger compressor or a 3000 psi pressure washer.
How about a 60V MAX Gatling gun chambered in 17HMR?
I would really like to see the belt sander as well. A 3×21.
Also , a lawn edger. Ego has a nice one, but I want to stay in my battery system.
I read somewhere that sales of belt sanders hits some sort of peak quite a number of years ago and that the tool has waned in popularity.
I have a batch of corded ones – including a heavyweight Porter Cable “locomotive” model. Its a worm gear-chain-drive machine that is hard to kill as long as you keep the worm gear lubricated. Along with a smaller PC 360, a Dewalt DW433 smaller yet PC 371K and diminutive Bosch 1278VS – I’m probably covered.
When I saw a Ryobi cordless on a clearance table at HD – I was tempted – but then I thought about how little I use the corded ones that I have. I also see that the Ryobi gets mixed reviews – with runtime, lack of power and belt tracking issues seeming to be the major negative comments. Maybe a flexvolt tool would be better.
We used to use some specialist best sanders in our metal/pipe fabrication business – like a Makita 9032 and Fein’s RS 12-70 + RS 10-70. A smaller cordless 9032 might be nice as a hobbyist’s tool.
I’d buy a Dewalt 60v 4 wheel lawn edger too.
I’d like to see a 20v quadruple hammer impact driver with 250ft/lbs of torque with 4 different modes. A recip saw with adjustable blade stroke depth, orbital action, and an adjustable shoe which all of their saws need. At least the adjustable shoe. A bigger blade circular saw similar to the Sawsquatch, Bigfoot, and Makita beam saw for cutting large nominal lumber in a single cut. 16″ sliding dual bevel compound miter saw. Universal track that can be used for all Dewalt circ saws. 20v borescope/thermal imaging tool. Still waiting on 16′ xp tape measure. A/c adapter capability for all cordless tools. Portable combination table saw/dry and wet cut tile saw with speed adjustability and a removable water reservoir pump attachment and removable router table attachment. A large capacity magazine for their 1st generation cordless framing gun that can be purchased separately. 20v Auto feed screw gun. A battery charger that can charge several (more than 8) batteries simultaneously. I had to construct my own because they don’t make one.
Pretty sure the auto feed screw gun has been out for years.
I already bought into Milwaukee M12 so I could care less about additions to their 12v line. But I agree it has been the red headed stepchild for DeWalt.
Ok dewalt need to compete with the Milwaukee stubby 3/8 and 1/2 m12 impact. Dewalt is lacking in a lighter weight tuff higher torque impact wrench area
I’d love to see a flexvolt belt sander. It would be super handy around the wood shop. In a previous home we had a powder room with a wood floor that I refinished and used a belt sander but had to be very careful not to run over the cord.
Are they going to come up with a new smaller brushless planer?!!! DCP580 is big, I don’t like it.
DCD130 Flexvolt 60V cordless drill
I would like to see a 20V OPE Edger.
I would like to see DeWALT to come up with some yellow Toughsystem tool boxes, I think the price would be expensive compared to black ones as the black ones are made of recycled plastic, but it probably would not be easy/cheap to make plastic things in yellow colour with recycled plastic. I would pay 50% more for a yellow one if the production process is more expensive for a yellow version, Or to make some of the existing black ones with yellow handle or side handles. They can make them in different colours if it does not bother them to partially give up from their yellow/black colours if it is really needed. They can make a little carrier with wheels which you can attach your Toughsystem boxes on it, similar to TSTAK one. They should make the insert foams available for all of their cordless tools which is sold separately. They should produce a 30″ x 40″ plastic sheet with 1″ thickness which can be attached to Toughsystem boxes with their yellow side latches. This would be something very basic but useful, can be used as a work bench using Toughsystem boxes as its legs.
8V cordless rotary tool would be great addition to that like, I like that line for their torches and screwdrivers.
12V cordless handheld tile saw similar to Makita CC301DWAE with water supply bottle on it, good addition for this line. This tile cutter would be suitable for ceramic tiles only, in addition they can make a 20V version also which can cut porcelain tiles as well. And also 60V Felxvolt version of table tile saw.
Would like to see DS200 and DS350 Toughsystem boxes as well, if they don’t make the boxes in different colours at least the size can help the users to recognise the contents of it.
I would like to see another generation of Toughsystem cases which are longer and wider made with the same material and quality and metal latches, in different heights. Would like to see one of these cases which I can place DCS361 inside of it. I know DeWALT has one much bigger with 240 lt capacity, something between Toughsystem and that would be OK I think.
Smaller version of Toughsystem similar to Festool SYS-3-SORT/12 or the current size of the Toughsystem cases with these type of little drawers.
Toughsystem 60V Flexvolt vacuum cleaner and 120V Flexvolt wheeled vacuum cleaner.
Toughsystem power station which you can charge at least 4 batteries (12V, 20V and 60V) with 4 power outlets (for Europe 110V and 240V together in the same unit, which means it is going to have a transformer as well!) with a retracted extension wire that can be stored inside the box. You would have everything related to power issues in one box.
– A new 20V multi tool with variable speed option
– 60V Flexvolt Jigsaw with variable speed
– 20V or 60V soldering gun for plumbing
– US/EU/JP made new line of heavy duty pro tool accessories.
– 20V cordless drill/screwdriver just with a fixed E6.3 (1/4″) hex shank adapter similar to impact driver just not noisy as an impact driver! Makita has some products like this.
I’m late with this one, but since they may come out with a 20V heat gun; as a suggestion, how about a chemical fogger for the 20V outdoor line? I mean a real one that heats up and vaporizes through a coil instead of just seemingly “atomizing” mist like the Ryobi. Just like the AC electric ones. If they can make 12V soldering irons I don’t see why they can’t make a heating coil, mini pump, and fan work together off 18..i mean 20V.
I’m again, suggesting the idea of making drills more compact by excluding the clutch system. Maybe even using the space to increase speed, number of speeds, and torque. We have impacts anyways, and those seem to be turning into drills.
Dewalt needs to start going more towards dual pack tools similar to Ridgid and Makita. Basically anything with wheels or that can sit on a stand/table.
Here is the updated photo of the DCW210 and you will see the battery has been positioned vertically, not horizontally as we see in this post.
Something’s wrong there, because I have a production model sander next to me, and the battery is indeed sideways, as shown in the above images.
It might be the European version of it or updated version as a lot of tool users (including me) were asking for a sand machine which the battery is positioned vertically, they might have listened to us. The one in the link I sent looks more like a pro tool to me. the other version looks like a DIYer tool, similar to the Stanley one.
If I had to guess, I would say it’s a rendering of a prototype and not the final product. If it was a vertical-battery-orientation model, I would expect for a different part number, other than the DCW210 that corresponds to the horizontal-orientation model.
Yes, I agree, but I have seen they have made some little modification without changing the model number, I thought it might be possible.
I saw another image of this at another EU retailer.
It’s starting to look like Europe will get a vertical-battery version of the sander!
20v 10” chop saw. And 20v nibbler
Robotic lawn mower:
My ideal lawn mower is a robot. Rumba vacuums are not robots, but dumb substandard vacuums with mindless wondering, bumping into walls and going some place else. This does not work outdoors, where the problem is different. Current offering are the mindless kind needing complex electric guidance fences. Terrible and overpriced.
To start make a really powerful lawn mower, with two 60v batteries. Make it for the normal mowing application with powered wheels and handle for user guidance with controls. However make the front wheels pivot and the two rear wheels independently guided. And allow the handles and controls to be temporally removed.
Then add a robot feature. Not a separate compromised product. Current middle school students can program robots made to compete with other robots, avoid obstacles, perform complex tasks, and respond to adverse environment actually intended to defeat the other robot. Drones fly in three dimensions at 25 miles per hour, avoid objects, identify a person and follow them. If 12 year olds can do this you can make a robot that mows the lawn as an add on feature.
Then the user can ask the robot to watch him mow the lawn, and remember the user mowing the lawn, and the robot can do that over and over again. Nothing pleases an OCD more than being imitated for the value he creates.
Control this with WiFi control like a Nest temperature control. Make schedules, monitor the weather for rain and dew point. Heck I can have the weather app tell me the ideal time for a bike ride, why not the mower the ideal time to mow the yard.
Adding surveillance video (camera on board), can be for other vendors, but it is a safety feature many will want.
If you understand what you are doing, the proof would be that a Homeowners Associations could send the mower out to mow 50 parking strips on three streets (for example).
Adopt an industry standard for all this.
It is beyond the scope of this request but you can imagine a single robotic lawn mower doing all the lawns in the neighborhood. Memory and computing capacity is not a limitation today, only your vision.
An amazing expensive new tool from DeWALT
THEY NEED A 60V BELT SANDER!
I am a cabinet installer, all my tools are dewault and cordless. But I still need to bring a cord to the jobsite for my belt sander. I know I can plug in off the 4 chargerpower station thay make which is still on my wishlist. I just figured with the 60v batts they would be able to make one with some decent power.
