With the remote, which will probably be best located at the end of the hose or on the tool (fixed around a handle?), users can turn the vac on or off without having to reach for the built-in controls. While it’s still a manual control, my recent experiences with Festool have taught me that it’s an extremely convenient feature, even a must-have. It’s a nice touch and one that instantly elevates my sight-unseen impression of the new Dewalt FlexVolt vac.
But also, there will be tools that can automatically activate the vac. That’s a big plus, too.
I really like this way of going about things. You can buy new tools that feature the wireless trigger, but if not, the included wireless remote gives you far more flexible and convenient placement for a second manual switch.
Tstak form factor and connectability? YES! Hopefully a ToughSystem adapter is in the works.
The vac looks good on paper, and its features sound “just right.” This looks to be the Dewalt FlexVolt brushless wet/dry dust extractor vacuum that everyone has been waiting for.
