Dewalt has recently announced a new FlexVolt 60V Max cordless pipe threader, DCE700, which will be launching in late 2019.
The new Dewalt FlexVolt pipe threader features a brushless motor and is compatible with Ridgid 12R-style die heads. Dewalt will also be launching their own die heads, which will be available separately or as kit.
The new Dewalt DCE700 cordless pipe threader is designed for fire sprinkler, mechanical, and electrical applications, and can thread black iron pipe, rigid conduit, and more, up to 2 inches.
It has a right-hand thread direction. The dies are made of high speed steel, and the die head materials are made of cast iron.
Features include an E-clutch system, which senses the motion of the tool and shuts down power if necessary, a sealed battery compartment, a low battery LED indicator, and a patent-pending pipe clamp with depth gauge. The clamp and die arm can be used to begin threading without direct contact with the die head.
Dewalt says that the tool is “Tool Connect Tag-Ready,” meaning there’s a convenient spot for their tool inventory/tracking/monitoring accessory.
Additionally, there is a new FlexVolt battery included in the kits, DCB609G, which features an oil-resistant glass-filled nylon housing. Even though the battery is latched inside a sealed battery compartment box, the enhancements to the FlexVolt battery adds additional protections against corrosive cutting oil.

- DCE700X2K – FlexVolt pipe threader kit with die head kit: $2299
The kits come with (2) DCB609G batteries, a charger, and carrying bag. The kit with die heads comes with a box for the die heads.
