So what types of new tools did Dewalt reveal at STAFDA this year? There’s a new 20V radio charger that everyone’s been asking for, a 12V wall scanner, licensed products such as portable heaters, and a 20V cordless brushless framing nailer.
As Jay previously reported in Coptool’s STAFDA 2012 new product roundup, Dewalt is expanding their brushless lineup with a new cordless nailer. Currently the DCF895 impact driver is the only brushless tool in Dewalt’s 20V and 12V lineups.
We recently discussed Bosch’s new brushless CORE lineup, which will kick off with an updated brushless rotary hammer and dual-chuck impact driver wrench. In the next few years both brands will be releasing many more brushless drills, drivers, and other fastening tools. But for the time being it looks like Bosch and Dewalt are both looking to entice tradesmen with unique brushless offerings before they try to catch up with Milwaukee, who has quite the head start with their 12V and 18V FUEL platforms.
Right now all we know about the new cordless brushless framing nailer is that it is an oil-free 30-34° paper tape model.

The Dewalt brushless framing nailer will be available in 2 kits, one with a single 4.0Ah battery (DCN690M1), and one with two 4.0Ah batteries (DCN690M2), and as a bare-tool. Right now there is no ETA or even a rough estimate as to when the new nailer will be released.
