Resembling a large cordless drill, the new FlexVolt brushless mixer is designed for prepping a variety of common construction materials, from thinset to concrete.
Dewalt says that their FlexVolt cordless mixer can driver more than 2X the power of their corded mixing drill (DW130V). It features an E-Clutch system that stops the motor when binding is detected.
It features a 1/2″ keyed chuck, a chuck key holder, a variable speed trigger switch, an LED worklight, and a rear handle mount that is compatible with an optional spade handle.
No-load speed is 0-600 RPM, tool weight is 6.94 lbs, presumably with battery, and the side handle has 3 positions (left, right, top) for user comfort.
Following are runtime examples for when the Dewalt FlexVolt mixer is powered by a FlexVolt 2.0Ah battery:
- 19 buckets (4.5 gal) of pre-mixed drywall mud per charge
- 17 buckets (5 gal) of tile mortar per charge
- 9 buckets (4.5 gal) of concrete per charge
It can also be used as a heavy duty drill. (But would you?)
Price: $219 for the bare tool (DCD130B), $349 for the kit (DCD130T1)
The kit comes with a 2.0Ah battery, charger, and tool bag.
