What types of cordless power tools do you want to see Dewalt come out with this year?
We know that a new group of Dewalt 12V Max Xtreme Sub-Compact cordless power tools are coming. We also expect to see a couple of Dewalt Atomic cordless power tools.
Here are some other tools that are coming soon: a new 8Ah battery, cordless fiber cement shears, and a cordless heat gun. Their new FlexVolt blower has also hit stores.
What other new Dewalt tools do you think we might see? What do you want to see?
Dewalt has expanded their 20V Max and FlexVolt cordless power tool platforms since the last time we asked this question.
See Also: Dear Dewalt, We Want You to Come Out With a [Fill in This Blank] in 2016
Still, some of the items from my Dewalt wishlist from 2016 remain on my current wishlist:
Cordless brad nailer that’s as compact as a pneumatic nailer.
Cordless pin nailer.
A full suite of modern test & measurement tools with Bluetooth connectivity.
I also wished for new 12V max compact cordless power tools and brushless 12V Max cordless tools, but that part of my 2016 wishlist is coming true. Although Dewalt has not yet officially announced their new 12V Max Xtreme Sub-Compact tools, they have announced new brushless drills and drivers in Europe. I don’t think it’ll be long before we see those tools announced here.
Dewalt has done a lot with their 20V Max cordless power tool lineup and also their FlexVolt system. But, users’ requests will never be completely fulfilled.
Tell us what you want to see from Dewalt!
Would love to see an update to their cordless 7 1/4″ miter saw. Needs dual bevel very badly
Totally agree. Love this little saw. Brushless and dual bevel would be killer. Don’t have to pull out big saws for dragging work or repeat frame ups. Awesome.
– A miter saw that is more capable than the brushed 20v 7 1/4″ DCS361 yet more portable and budget friendly than the 120v 12″ DHS790. Ideally a 10″ dual bevel slider, whether it be 2x20v or 60v. I’d buy at least 3 or 4.
– Pole saw, 20v and/or 60v (like most of the OPE it’s nice having both available)
I know there will be many job specific uni-taskers mentioned by others, so I’ll leave that to them.
Second the miter saw idea.
Been saying this for years but pick up on Plumbing tools comparable to Milwaukees for starters a pipe cutter and a air pressure un clogger or even a press tool kit for copper/gas piping. Hand held vertical sawzaw And definitely 2nd the first comment about a extendable pole saw and AFFORDABLE/PORTABLE/COMPACT sliding miter saw
A 1/4 and 3/8 ratchet would be wonderful for the 20V. I shouldn’t be that hard seeing they make it for MAC tools. I’d like to be able to walk into Lowe’s and buy it.
I would buy a couple each
12volt 1/2in impact wrench that does 4-600ftlb
why a 12V – 1/2 inch impact? at those torques and that size fasterns you will need a bigger tool to avoid arm damage anyway.
The 20V comes in 2 flavors and the big one easily does those values and then some. The mid gets close.
now a 1/4 drive or 3/8th impact at 150 ft lbs is reasonable. Then again that’s about where the impact drivers sit today. I use my dewalt impact driver with a socket adapter on my car now.
Yes! Medium cordless miter saw!!
RANDALL DE RUYTER
Right angle brushless impact ratchet at ¼, ⅜, ½ inch. Needed to have tork of at least 60 – 75 ft lb. Doesn’t have to be high speed just constant. Needs LED light and paddle switch. Have an option so battery can be on bottom so to could stand on battery ( like a 4 amp battery) and be able to have to battery able to slide so it would be more flat in hard to reach places (1.5 amp battery).
Build a 14.4 v line of compact mico tools for hobbies and home use. Micro table saw, jig saw, driver, drill press. Temp control heat gun. Many of these tools will meets demands of most households. Make them brushless.
Pole saw would be a winner for the outdoor platform.
I’d love a combo impact wrench like Bosch’s that handles both sockets and screwdriver bits in one tool.
A cordless medium crown stapler with vinyl siding adapter. A cordless roofing nailer. A 7-1/4″ circular saw with the blade on the proper side!
Comfortable screwdriver. One that is more about precision and is not a load to carry.
Need more power on the 3/8 impacts. Milwaukee claims 600 ft lbs. dewalt is not even close at 150
I was working on a flat ages ago, it was a furnished flat and they wanted to sell it, a guy from an agency came to do a floor plan and was using a DeWALT laser distance measurer and was noting all in a notebook, suddenly I heard he measured the length of the room and it was 13 meter! He was working for agencies for ages and I am sure he had not seen 13 meter long rooms in more than 99% of the flats in Central London. I told him the length looks like 6-7 meter to me and then he measured it again and it was close to 7 meter, I remember I told him that I would never trust a measurer like this and I am still behind what I have said!
I’ve been using a Bosch for years and have no issues. Tons of these are sold, and I just don’t hear stories like that. I suspect user error, and not doing a reality check on his results. I know I hit the wrong target occassionally.
Now, those old ultrasonic (? had a cone-thingy?), those I did not like. Laser though? Good to go.
This seems like an increasingly common foible of our digital age. While some folks were always better with spatial relationships – reliance on calculators and now computers and digital devices may have a negative impact on people being able to do math in their heads. I was over on your side of “the pond” last month – and someone asked me about why I had bought my principal residence (back in the 1970’s). I mentioned that the basement was some 2400 sq. feet and that I thought it would do well for a shop. The sq. ft. measurement – got a glassy stare – so I quickly guessed220 sq. meters – while my listener fumbled with his cell phone and corrected my guess by a small bit. I had multiplied 2400 by 0.09 in my head and then rounded up.
I recall a cartoon in construction magazine – with a young architect looking in dismay at the long line of cement trucks waiting on a pour at a small residential site. The caption read “I think I forgot to divide by 27 !”
Having a good sense for the numbers – is a indeed a useful skill to acquire. I really like my Leica Disto 810 – but I hope that I would recognize that something was amiss if it told me that a typical Manhattan kitchen was 40 feet long.
wonder if he aimed it wrong. Easy to do wrong if you don’t pay attention, like any other tool really
I think the tool got confused and instead of 6.5m measured it twice more as 13m. Maybe new ones are good, but this story was about 9 years ago. But what made me angry was that how he could not understand that distance did not look 13m and it was his daily job to just measure rooms from one flat to another flat, anyone here has seen a bed room 13m long?
You can also get funky measurements on reflective surfaces and some windows.
Using them from wall to wall though is always on point. LDF’s are great.
– Pole saw
– Radio smaller that the boom box that is a charger, radio, and Bluetooth
I wouldn’t mind seeing more flexvolt OPE that is on equal feature setup as the 40V series.
I don’t really want to buy into the 40v line and have the 2 batteries I can’t cross use. I’d rather have flexvolt batteries that I can use on my 20V tools and future Flexvolt tools.
I’d like to see a flexvolt x2 table saw come out that is the same saw or size as the current larger corded model.
Not the same question but I’d like to see a new corded drill come out that’s updated and made in USA
a flexvolt random orbit sander/buffer would be nice too. 6 inch actual random orbit.
Dewalt version of the MAC ratchet would be nice if only to sell one at a reduced price – damn things are spendy even used. But I’d still rather it was on the 20V system than the 12.
Does the new mid torque wrench have tool connect? I’d like to see all the torque wrenches have a tool connect mode where you can put a torque limit on them – or register a value. maybe a speed too. That’s just me being picky and needy though.
I’m sure I’ll think of something else.
Here in the UK a lot of Makita’s 36V tools are in two options, one with 36V batteries and one with 2 x 18V batteries, both the same just battery ports are different, it seems in the US Makita has less options like this. I think DeWALT can adopt that policy also and they can make their 40V tools available with two 20V batteries, as it is with their 2 x20V Mower.
The 36v, single battery is the old tech. I think the last new tool on that system was 10 years ago. They certainly haven’t made any new tools in that form factor. the 18vx2 is a far superior system to the single 36v battery.
I agree, but some are still available, but by time they are becoming less available, so that means they have given up from single 36V batteries.
How about a dewalt tape measure that stands up with the Milwaukee and Stanley ones? A deeper cut flexvolt bandsaw
– This seems like a natural progression, but an updated toughsystem radio that accepts flexvolt, keeping the current sound quality/design. I returned the new tstak radio because it could not get as loud as my toughsystem radio without distortion.
– Last year Stuart talked about wanting a 120V 10″ table saw… me too.
– Not necessarily DeWalt, but how about a decent size (10 gallon +) cordless vac without the HEPA priced for the homeowner? Maybe technology isn’t there yet to compete with corded vacs since $100 gets you a good one. But with all the rolling dust extractor carts I see people making I bet I’m not the only one that would buy one.
I for one would never buy a cordless large format shop vac. Doesn’t make physics sense for the power need. The constant run would require significant battery capacity – not necessarily draw demand. Just capacity.
now I guess if you said it was a Flexvolt X2 that could use the adapter – maybe I would consider it.
The smaller capacity Flexvolt vac they make now – makes a lot of sense for portability.
120V Flexvolt would be good, I agree.
I would also hope that it would have some form of tool control or remote control like the new flexvolt model to reduce battery consumption. And I guess vacuum capacity isn’t a big deal anymore when you have a separate dust bin ahead of the vac. I guess what I want already exists, just has a HEPA/OSHA label price tag. Since construction companies HAVE to have them lets double the cost, or at least I hope that’s why the price is so high.
First of all I would like DeWALT to come up with new Touhsystem toolboxes.
1) DS200 similar to DS150 or DS130.
2) Toughsystem Toolboxes in yellow colour and possibly in other colours as well.
3) Larger Toghsystem toolboxes which you can fit the DCS361 in.
4) Lockable versions of DS290 and DS295
5) Toughsystem Vacuum/Dust collector 60V/120V Flexvolt, which accessories and hose are placed in another Toughsystem box not wrapped around the Vac as it is in TSTAK version.
6) Toughsystem Wheeled platform.
7) Toughsystem Site Light. 60V
8) Toughsystem 120V/240V Power station.
1) 20V/60V Soldering tool for copper pipes.
2) 12V Soldering Iron
3)12V/20V Glue Gun
4) 20V/60V Mitre saws that have a tape measure engraved on their table
5) Full range of accessory cases.
That mitre saw comment has me curious. I mean it’s a reasonable idea but I have to say I’ve never seen one with markings on them. probably due to the size of the rotating base plate. still interesting idea.
I’d want a 20V soldering iron – not the 12. More power capacity and quicker availability.
The copper pipe thing might sell too good point.
I remember I had to cut a lot of 2 x 4 in approximately 19cm (less than 20cm) length and I was measuring and marking with a pencil and there was a Portuguese guy working with me who did mark the Mitre saw table 19cm from the blade and that is it, I did not need to measure anymore and I was just cutting non stop. This idea would work for short length cuts only, probably up to 30 – 40 cm, but it would be a big help, I hate to look for a tape measure or a pencil at work. It would be good if you don’t need a precise cut.
A soldering tool for copper pipe is a good idea, Rothenberger makes one but it is so huge and it is corded and Antex makes one hand held version which does not have good reviews, also corded. A cordless version of this would be amazing, I would buy ten units if they make one.
around here (US) mostly people use propane torches for copper pipe solder. But there are the occasionally issues where you’d rather not have an open flame.
clamp on inductance heater would be nice. I’ve seen the corded ones but you make a point there isn’t a cordless one. Wonder what that power demand would be – never looked into it.
Here in the UK also they use gas torches for soldering copper pipes. I don’t like compression fittings too much as they can leak one day, I would only use compression fittings if the work is going to be visible, not next to any wooden or plaster surface.
I know, it might be a good idea if it is going to be a 60V tool.
Punch knockout set, more electrical tools
Solar panel with a built in charge controller to charge batteries 20v/60v
Expand Automotive tools, OBD2 reader
I really like the solar charger idea!
I completely support the idea. Solar Charger for 8V – 60V batteries.
Dewalt battery needle scaler for welders
60v or 120v 1″ Impact gun
60v pole saw
I’d like to see a radio with a blue tooth screen I can use my phone to play how to you tube videos on.
Id like to see more 12v max stuff. Maybe a 12v brushless angled driver or a compact light like the dcl050 or a 12v compact light duty grinder. I use the 12v max impact drill and the lights everyday. Im in the hvac field and also would like to see a vacuum pump. It would be very helpful since sometimes there is no power around.
Rivet and Rivnut guns. Milwaukee and Metabo have cordless rivet guns. Neither have cordless Rivnut guns. Would love to see those.
Also… High Speed Drill for sheetmetal. Metabo has one… but no one else. Love to see the same drill on the Dewalt platform.
Stanley has a few types of cordless rivet guns which work with DeWALT batteries. very well made.
I had no idea this existed! Another thing for my endless wishlist. Thank you
There are also other tools that Stanley has made which works with DeWALT batteries.
Discontinue the cordless gyroscopic screwdriver; good concept but not a good performer. Re-introduce a small, lightweight cordless screwdriver with variable speed, led light, folding handle and a Li battery that can be removed to charge- and make extra batteries obtainable at a price that is FAIR for consumers.
120 V corded/cordless table saw
Lets just say- i hope they make GOOD BITS! Their current flex bits are garbage! In fact i would say their bits have always been garbage!
They have some of the better bits going, always better then the Milwaukee bits I tried… My father in law won’t even use his Milwaukee bits lol
I could really use a 20V stick vacuum like the one Ryobi came out with.
I would like to see a Flexvolt pole saw and a Flexvolt belt sander. A nice pin nailer would be great to round out the cordless nailers. But most of all I would like to see a quality Flexvolt Power Washer
I can think of three things that I’d like to see:
– 20v vac, dust-buster style.
– 20v atomic series ratchet.
– A lightweight cordless glue gun that uses standard glue sticks, preferably based on the 20v system so I can use the small batteries yet still have it heat quickly.
I think a 12v Max ratchet would be more likely, since SBD already makes a model for Mac.
I’m sure you’re right; I’d just like to be able to focus on a single battery platform.
How about a 3/8″ drive 90 degree 20V ratchet (similar to the Fuel). They already make the BRS038 in 12V for Mac. I own the Fuel, it’s the only (lonely) Milwaukee charger in the whole shop.
I’d rather dewalt got out of the automotive tools bit – although I want a cheaper version of the MAC ratchet. meh
I’ve been tempted to get that milwaukee device. or the IR device. I mean the cost of the MAC tool – just to use my batteries – covering buying a milwaukee kit. It’s crazy
A cordless replacement for a pneumatic hammer would be really cool.
I just realized that the last time I got out an air hose was for the air hammer. That could be the only remaining pneumatic hand tool that no one has made cordless yet. Either it got overlooked or the movement is too complicated to reproduce.
I don’t see how it would be any different from a recip Saw mechanism, well, I don’t know how strong that style would hit. Not sure how they would accomplish it but it certainly would be handy to have a cordless one.
wonder if a rotary hammer mechanism would work for that. minus the bits that turn. IE rotary hammer without the turning – which if I recall the larger device – you can run the rotation off. But that is something you don’t see.
Doesn’t some other company make a cordless Jack Hammer?
A 20V 3/8″ Impact Wrench that’s greater than 150lb-ft. Just something mid level like others have that can remove lug nuts.
well a lot has been said, for now just a short list:
20v Soldering gun/Iron
20V Glue Gun
20V Belt sander
20v hand held vacuum (car)
20v pole saw
20v garden shears
20v telescope hedge trimmer with angle settings (not just straight) like 40v version
60v dual port table saw
a small screw driver that can be charged via USB (3,6V)
a yellow tstak box
a better quality tstak box (slide mechanism for drawers)
a three drawer tstak
most important: unique selling point: single 120v corded adaptor for flexvolt tools
almost as imported: a “high” end fast charger
I hope that all wishes are discussed with dewalt product management and that they at least give some “unofficial” comment what is in the pipeling
… having said that , an official survey be Dewalt themselves
wish list 20v / 60v tools and official reporting/ranking what the people ask for !!
Maybe TSTAK toolboxes with Toughsystem toolbox quality?
You mean 60V Flexvolt battery AC adapter?
Maybe a boxed Fast Charger similar to the 40V one with 6 ports but compatible with TSTAK or Toughsystem boxes?
I agree, 20V or 12V garden shears would be nice.
20V Belt sander and 1/3 sheet Sander also would be nice.
I would love to buy a DeWALT 20V cordless Lopper similar to the Craftsman one.
… to follow up even more:
approx. after 2-3 weeks of questioniere also a ranking HERE of “most wanted”
b) then follow up and SEND to Dewalt product management !!!
This I agree with 1000%
I have to also mention these:
1) Cordless 20v/60V Pipe Threading tool for steel and stainless steel pipes.
2) Cordless 20V Dot Peen Marking tool / Laser Engraver tool
3) Cordless 60V 230mm/9″ Angle Grinder
4) Cordless 20V Straight Grinder
5) Cordless 20V Mini Bench Grinder
6) Cordless 8V Rotary tool
7) Cordless 8V / 12V Labeller similar to Brother ones
8) Cordless 60V 1/2″ Router
9) Cordless 120V Table Saw
Cordless benchtop drill press.
Amazing, I forgot to mention it, I have seen Fein has done one already, amazing quality. I think Milwaukee has one also.
I’ve seen what they call a mag drill – magnetized base sticks to an i-beam or structural steel – and you can then drill the beam or one next to it.
etc. I think that is the term.
but not a drill press so to speak. why on earth would you want a cordless drill press.
Yes, you are right.
Corded drill press is for the ones who have a work shop, cordless one would be good for work sites.
I really want Dewalt to make a cordless stick type vacuum like the one Makita has. But with much stronger suction power!!
Dreaming for Technical tools, like Network cabling pullers, fish rods, Push sticks, strings, magnets, Punch down & crimping pliers… Like Fluke or Klein Tools.
A Dewalt “flexiclic” multi-head drill, 12v brushless or 20v atomic. Why doesn’t Milwaukee release on their Fuel version in the US, anybody know?
OH I wonder who they would have to patent that from but I like the idea. Good Call
Not sure if Festool or Bosch or the chuck mfr is holding the patent (i’ll check my manual later tonight). Bosch is also releasing a brushless 18V version with SDS + head: https://www.protoolreviews.com/trades/carpentry/bosch-18v-flexiclick-multi-head-drill-driver-system-gsr18v-535fc/43501/
1) Insulation cutter compatible with their tracks
2) Hand held tile saw compatible again with their tracks
3) A tile cutting scoring wheel adaptor compatible with their tracks. This could be used to score large tiles or drywal boards. No need to keep a separate t-square…
4) A jig saw track adapter.
Seems like I really want them to have a full track system 🙂
Other than that a 12v pvc cutter would be nice.
another nice idea I didn’t think of. I lust after their track saw – it would be nice to have adapters for a jig saw and maybe others devices.
Not sure I would want to use that track piece on tile but I get your point. (maybe remove the sacrifical rubber strip that the track saw uses for a steel strip for a tile saw to run against)
Raimondi has one and it’s really nice . They sell the tracks and an angle grinder adapter. They also have a scoring wheel. It’s called the raizor cutter system (check it out on youtube) but unfortunately the guide rails are like 600$ and the adapter 500$. Too expensive for me
12V/20V hand held tile saw, 20V/60V table top tile saw.
A 60V pressure washer like the Worx one but way more powerful. Would never match the power of a gas one but would be handy as hell.
That would be nice, or maybe 120V Flexvolt.
I’ve never seen a electric power washer that was worth a damm they just don’t hold up for some reason
I have a greenworks 2000 PSI model I bought 3 years ago. Granted I only use it about twice a year – give or take. But the nice thing – so far every year it’s started right off and I’m not spending a day fixing a shit carb on a lawnmower engine. Which is what I always seemed to have to do with any others.
Now if I used one every day or once a week I might of course use something a bit different.
20V Backpack shop vacuum
I wish they make a cordless scrool saw and also launch it in Europe, we never even get the corded one. Their biscuit joiner would be another awesome tool to have cordless. I bet when I buy the corded they announce the cordless version. I worked like that with the router and the sander!
I agree, a 20V/60V cordless scroll saw would be nice, 20V Biscuit Joiner and 60V Domino Joiner.
Yes! A cordless domino joiner too, but one capable of competing with festool’s pricy domino joiner.
It should compete with the Festool one for quality not the price.
Festool is already great quality. If they achieve the same quality with a lower price is a win-win.
I’m waiting on a update for the dcf887. DeWalt knows it has issues and companies like Milwaukee have past DeWalt with their gen 3 impact driver.
Pole saw. 20v if you must, 60v preferred.
While Dewalt does have a 3/4 impact wrench, it’s the same tool otherwise as the 1/2 inch model. I’d like to see a dedicated 3/4 impact, using the 60v platform. I’m ok with a larger and heavier tool in exchange for a more power and durability. Compactness isn’t as important as comfort and capability at the larger impact sizes.
– Cordless plasma cutter
– Cordless laser cutter
– Cordless welder
– Cordless air gun
– Cordless compressor
At this point, maybe everyone should just look at the Milwaukee/ryobi lineup and see what’s selling the best and make a version of those to add to the lineup.
I really don’t want a cordless DeWalt anything, but it would be nice to see some variety and actual competition in the cordless market for stuff beyond drills/drivers/etc.
I’m really not understanding how SBD can be such a massive company compared to TTi and yet have such a small line of cordless DeWalt tools. Given how many commercial users swear by the brand and only buy it, I would have thought they would eclipse TTi/Milwaukee/Ryobi many moons ago in terms of the amount of cordless tools available. Maybe everyone really just wants more drills, drivers, and saws.
I deal with contractors on a daily basis at my job and see almost every contractor using DeWalt or Makita power tools. I rarely see any Milwaukee except for some items like to cordless fans and vacuums. For heavier equipment like busters I see mostly Bosch.
They actually have a cordless compressor. I have one, I really like it, just used it to hang siding on a garage.
I mostly agree with you, their Flexvolt line is good though, they have made a 60V cordless Wall Chaser which is amazing, their 60V mitre saws are very impressive, But I also say that half of their 20V tools are drills and impact drivers.
– 20V Rebar Tier would be good also
– 60V Rebar Cutter
– 60V Plasma Cutter (which I doubt they would make something like this)
– 60V Laser Cutter would not work I think
– 120V Flexvolt Welder which can be used as a corded welder also.
Thought they had a rebar cutter – in 20V now. and they did for a time market a dewalt cordless welder. it wasn’t a common battery platform but rather a Lithium car battery for want of a term.
Use the battery – limited welder capacity – or plug it in and it charged and could be used direct on cord. but not at the same time. Either it charged or it welded. I think. The OE of the device was european I think. Always wondered what happened to that setup.
That is a rod cutter not a rebar cutter.
That welder was too expensive and a strange battery next to it. I think it is discontinued, it was made in Austria.
Cordless welder is made by fronius
Accupocket stick and tig
I would like a cordless crimper for 12v. Electrical connections.
Usually it’s a hydraulic crimper
I would like to see:
20V or 60V pole saw.
60V full size router.
20V Biscuit jointer.
A stacking system that is of the quality of the Milwaukee Packout.
I agree about 60V Router and 20V Biscuit Joiner.
Cordless benchtop planer
That is a good idea, probably 120V Flexvolt.
I would like to see someone come up with a one handed brushless band saw similar to Milwaukee’s M12 but with a larger throat and faster cutting speed.
You are right, it is a very interesting tool, I never see it before, just googled.
1.Would love to see updated 6 1/2 20v. Brushless and left and right options.
2.Would also be great if they could do a left blade sidewinder flexvolt. Flexvolt “wormdrive” is cumbersome. Won’t buy it.
3. Broken record: adapter for flexvolt tablesaw so dc or ac. I know they won’t do it but would be good.
4. Flexvolt 120 (2 battery) 10” table saw. (Duh.) existing adapter would work perhaps….
That said generally very happy with the Dewalt tool I have.
Put me down for a Flexvolt 16″ or larger fan that can be used for extended run-time in “Quiet Mode” or high velocity air movement mode if needed.
How about something like this:
It can move the air and also filter it at the same time. 120V Flexvolt
something like this?
don’t know the runtime or modes
Are you on holiday, Stuart?!
What makes you think that?
One day no comment from you while there was more than a hundred of comments just for this post.
I was at the Milwaukee media event.
I monitored the comments throughout the day, but didn’t have much chance to reply. Plus, there aren’t really any questions or comments that need my input.
A quarter of the comments are yours! =P
:))) I actually did count them and noticed it before your comment and it was a quarter of the comments. You read my mind.
The day after that I saw your new post about Milwaukee media event and understood the reason. I hope you enjoyed it.
There are some tools that are not meant to be cordless and there are some tools that the big box brands have no business making such as welding equipment copper pipe soldering equipment. Power tools and sweating copper do not apply to one another in any way whatsoever. There’s only one way to sweat copper pipe and the same method has worked for almost a century so why would you think Dewalt should even attempt to fix something that isn’t broken. As for a big box brand cordless welder, it would take almost twenty 20v batteries just to get the electrode to spark. You would have to have over a hundred batteries to make it work. Nobody would be stupid enough to buy something like that. But what I would like to see Dewalt do this year is release their next generation tools for the 20v xr stuff that’s long overdue and steer away from the atomic and 12v xtreme crap. They need to focus on the 20v xr stuff which is their bread n butter. I’d also like to see Dewalt improve the parts quality on some of the lemons that they released in past years like that POS that they call a chainsaw and make an adjustable shoe standard for every single one of their recip saws. They also need to come out with a cordless framing gun that weighs a lot less than what is currently available. They’re great tools, but it’s almost worth going back to the pneumatic guns because the cordless is so heavy and can be a real PITA to use in overhead framing situations in tight spaces.
They do make a cordless welder! =)
From a cut-away of the Fronius, there are 48 Li-ion battery cells.
Dewalt should come out with a cordless mini belt sander deburring tool, comparable to the pneumatic ones
-120V cordless Power washer
-2x20V Snow Blower anyone??
not a tool but on wish list
tstak cooler (yellow !, like the toughsystem cooler)
I second the thought of a flexvolt jobsite fan
60V Flexvolt Backpack Vacuum Cleaner.
Ideally the backpack should be 60×2… they need to make a light-weight 60v too, or even better, make the backpack modular.
I’m still carting my old 18v post style handheld vacuum around and I only have 2 functioning 18v batteries left!
A battery powered ice auger. There is a couple brands on the market already.
well, two weeks now into the questioniere
can you consolidate in a first step
“most wanted” tool ranking in a list
3 -4 sections would be appreciated
1: 20v tools
2: 12v max tools
3: flexvolt tools (60v max)
4: storage / accessories (like tstak, toughsystem, fast CHARGER !etc..)
b) any answers / reaction from DeWALT product management
sideliner: is there a reaction from Dewalt themselves on the Mil. NPS2019 ???
c) when (or does) Dewalt plan a product forum / symposium
There’s not really enough common requests for a clear to pattern to have emerged.
I could ask Dewalt for a comment, but this is the kind of thing they are unlikely to answer in any specific manner. Brands generally don’t like talking about their future product plans or roadmaps, or how they might respond to specific requests.
Similarly, “what do you think of your competitors’ new tool releases and previews” isn’t a question that I could expect an answer to.
Privately? Maybe a product manager might comment or highlight differences they are aware of. On the record? That’s like asking the Yankees manager to comment about the Red Sox.
I have no idea if or when Dewalt might have a new product media event. Their last hosted event was 2 years ago.
I would like DeWalt to make a cordless riveter, and edge benders for sheetmetal.

A new line of impact wrenches. I’m about to buy the 1 inch line from Milwaukee and use a battery adapter. Dewalt is way ahead with drills and saws. Not when it comes to impacts though.
