DeWalt officially entered the professional landscaping market after unveiling a line of battery-powered Outdoor Power Tools at GIE+EXPO.
The line includes two 40V Max Brushless String Trimmers, two 40V Max Brushless Blowers and a 40V Max Hedge Trimmer.
The cordless tools run on the lithium ion battery platform.
All of the produces come with either the 4.0Ah lithium ion battery or the 6.0Ah lithium ion battery, which offers 50 percent more battery capacity.
Featuring a 15-inch cut swatch, the trimmer includes a dual-line bump feed head, and a gear drive design.
A variable speed trigger allows the user more control over speed and runtime while a padded auxiliary handle offers comfort.
The blower provides up to 400 cfm of air volume and 120 mph.
The Blower also has a variable speed trigger to provide the user full control and a speed lock to allow the user to operate the tool without having to hold the trigger during use.
The Blower’s curved tube design creates rotational control, which helps to reduce arm fatigue.
The hedge trimmer has a motor equipped with a friction clutch to protect the transmission.
The steel blades provide a 22-inch cut with up to ¾-inch cut capacity.
A removable gear case cover and top cover allow for easy exchange of blades and access to brushes.
Finally, a wrap around auxiliary handle gives the user a comfortable grip, while a safety lock allows for controlled actuation.
Each Outdoor Power Tool features an impact-resistant Xenoy housing. The String Trimmers and Hedge Trimmer also feature aluminum gear cases while the blower incorporates a protective roll cage.
