LOUISVILLE, KY(October 20, 2016) – DEWALT® continues to expand its 40V MAX* Battery-Powered Outdoor Equipment at the 2016 GIE+EXPO with the new 6-Pack Charging Station (DCB116) and Pole Hedge Trimmers (DCHT895 family).
The 6-Pack Charging Station from DEWALT is designed to charge the batteries necessary to power DEWALT outdoor power equipment and to eliminate the need for 2-cycle gas mix on landscaping trucks. Plug in the 6-Pack Charging Station to sequentially charge up to six 40V MAX* batteries at a fast rate. Each DEWALT 7.5Ah battery charges in under an hour, and each 6.0Ah battery in 45minutes. Once one battery is charged, the charger will automatically switch to the next battery, choosing the battery closest to full charge. Each battery compartment includes indicators showing charging status: fully charged, charge in process, or waiting to be charged. The 6-Pack Charging Station is also water resistant and includes a cover to help protect the batteries from outdoor elements and landscaping debris. In addition, the 6-Pack Charging Station provides an organized storage solution for DEWALT 40V MAX* batteries and is optimized for transport with carrying handles.
The Pole Hedge Trimmer is designed to cut through a variety of landscape overgrowth including medium and tall hedges as well as large bushes. With a cut-rate equivalent to that of competitive gas-powered units, the 22” dual-reciprocating, laser cut blades offer sharp shearing with a cut capacity of up to 1” thick branches. The Pole Hedge Trimmer features a telescoping shaft for trimming in compact spaces when retracted, as well as in many hard-to-reach areas when fully extended. An articulating head allows the user to maneuver the Pole Hedge Trimmer to a variety of angles, cutting in 8 different positions, adjusted by 15° increments. This Pole Hedge Trimmer provides a runtime of over 3 hours when paired with a 7.5Ah 40V MAX* battery pack (DCHT895X1). Equipped with the brushless motor and removable gear case cover, the Pole Hedge Trimmer allows for easy serviceability and eliminating gas-related maintenance issues.
Available in early 2017, the 6-Pack Charging Station will retail for approximately $399 MSRP. The Pole Hedge Trimmer will come bare at $399 MSRP (DCHT895B), kitted with one 4.0Ah battery at $449 MSRP (DCHT895M1), and kitted with one 7.5Ah battery at $549 MSRP (DCHT895X1). The DEWALT 40V MAX* Outdoor Power Equipment provides the power, runtime and durability the professional landscaper demands with GAS PERFORMANCE. GUARANTEED™. The DEWALT battery-operated equipment improves workplace efficiency by eliminating trips to the pump, fuel mixing, constant pull starts, minimizes maintenance and provides low noise levels for properties with noise restrictions and cities with bans on noise levels or gas-powered equipment.
DEWALT Outdoor Power Equipment comes standard with a commercial three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. Getting into a battery-powered system has never been easier; premium 40V MAX* 6Ah and 7.5Ah batteries come with an extended 2-year free service contract, eliminating many of the maintenance and gas costs including gas, oil, and stabilizer costs associated with operating gas-powered products.
