LAS VEGAS, NV (January 17, 2017) – DEWALT® attends World of Concrete Show with a wide range of tool, accessory, and anchoring solutions for construction applications. Many of these tools are part of the DEWALT Perform & Protect™ line of tools designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance. For a list of Perform & Protect™ drilling and grinding solutions that adhere to the new OSHA ruling on protections for workers exposed to respirable silica dust, go to DEWALT.com.
DEWALT is debuting fifteen new Grinders and nine new Rotary and Demolition Hammers at the show. With six new Lanyard Ready™ Grinders, all of the fifteen are Made in the USA with Global Materials and feature multiple size options and trigger types. The new Rotary Hammers include the 1-9/16" SDS 60V MAX* Combination Hammer which offers fast and efficient drilling in hard concrete. The constant speed control allows the tool to maintain RPM. It features three-mode operation for rotary hammer drilling, chipping and drill-only as well as the DEWALT E-Clutch® system which senses the motion of the tool and reduces the motor torque to a manageable level if necessary. The unit’s brushless motor provides power and long runtime in demanding applications and as part of the DEWALT FLEXVOLT® System, the 1-9/16" SDS MAX 60V MAX* Combination Hammer comes kitted with the new DEWALT 9.0Ah FLEXVOLT® Battery.
Also at the World of Concrete Show, DEWALT is announcing the DUSTX+™ Adhesive Installation System. Accessories featured at the show include the new Hollow Drill Bit, in both SDS+ & SDS MAX formats. The Hollow Drill Bit connects directly to the DEWALT Airlock™ System forming a secure, locking connection between the Drill Bit and a DEWALT dust extractor.
