Dewalt has announced several new 20V Max cordless power tools today, including a new metal-cutting-saw (DCS373L2) and cut-off tool (DCG412L2). Both of these new additions are designed to handle the metal-cutting needs of contractors, electricians, and other professionals users.
Dewalt 20V Metal Cutting Circular Saw
The new saw has a cutting capacity of 1-11/16″, meaning that it can easily cut steel materials such as uni-strut, threaded rod, conduit, cold rolled pipe, and sheet metal and plates in a single pass.
The saw features a 460 UWO and 3700 RPM motor, and comes with a 30T 5-1/2″ carbide-tipped metal-cutting blade. An LED provides cut-line illumination, with a 20-second delay providing added convenience. Dewalt’s Multi-Coated Sight-Line window is abrasive-resistant and provides a clear view of the cut. A high-strength steel shoe is resistant to chip build-up, and a magnesium upper guard offers durable protection.
The saw will be available in July 2012 as part of a kit that includes two 20V Max 3.0Ah batteries with fuel gauges, a charger, and kit box, for $359. A bare-tool add-on (DCS373B) will be priced at $199.
Dewalt 20V Cut-Off Tool
Dewalt also announced a new cut-off tool, designed for construction, maintenance, and automotive applications. It features a 4-1/2″ disc size, 6500 RPM motor, quick-change wrench-free wheel release, tool-free adjustable guard, and 2-position side handle. It also has a low-profile gear case that allows for access in tight spaces.
The new cut-off wheel will be available in May 2012 as part of a kit that includes two 20V 3.0Ah batteries with fuel gauges, a charger, wrench, Type 1 cutting guard, side handle, and contractor bag, for $299. A bare-tool version, DCG412B, will be available for $119.
