Canadian Contractor

DEWALT announces the launch of the new 60V MAX* Brushless Cordless 7-In. FLEXVOLT® Grinder with Kickback Brake™ (DCG440B) and 20V MAX* XR® Brushless 3-In. Cut Off Tool (DCS438). These new product offerings provide professionals the tools they need to get the job done.

Designed to power through heavy-duty grinding jobs with ease, the new 60V MAX* Brushless Cordless 7-In. FLEXVOLT® Grinder with Kickback Brake™ delivers 30 percent more torque than the DCG418 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® Grinder** and up to 2,300 max watts output. Featuring up to a 7-In. grinding capacity and a no-load speed of 6,500 RPM, the grinder is ideal for wire brushing as well as general grinding and cutting during metal and concrete applications.

Built with user protection top of mind, the grinder is part of the DEWALT PERFORM & PROTECT™ line of tools and features the E-CLUTCH® System as well as a Kickback Brake™. PERFORM & PROTECT™ tools are designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance. The brake brings the wheel to a halt once the trigger is released while the E-CLUTCH® System immediately shuts down the motor when a pinch or stall is detected. The Kickback Brake™ incorporates both of these features, activating in the event that a pinch or stall occurs, engaging the brake at maximum force and shutting the tool down; effectively reducing the force towards the user.

The new 20V MAX* XR® DEWALT Brushless 3-In. Cut Off Tool is designed to cut a variety of materials such as metal, drywall, fiber cement, plastic, tile and stone. With 550 max watts output***, a no-load speed of 20,000 RPM, a 3/8-In. arbor and 0.79-In. max depth of cut, the cut off tool is ready to handle many applications across the trades. The cut off tool has both forward and reverse capability and includes a removeable dust shroud with adjustable shoe and AirLock™ connection allowing for convenient attachment to DEWALT extractors (sold separately). In addition, the unit includes a 7/16-In. arbor adapter ring and three wheels: a Bonded Abrasive Wheel, a Diamond Multi-Material Wheel and a Diamond Tile Wheel. Lastly, the unit comes outfitted with a tool free adjustable guard, onboard wrench storage and LED light.

Both the 60V MAX* Brushless Cordless 7-In. FLEXVOLT® Grinder with Kickback Brake™ and 20V MAX* XR® Brushless 3-In. Cut Off Tool are TOOL CONNECT™ Chip Ready (DCE042 sold separately) and can be tracked virtually on the jobsite via the DEWALT TOOL CONNECT™ Site Manager app. Each comes standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.

                The 60V MAX* Brushless Cordless 7-In. Grinder FLEXVOLT® with Kickback Brake™ will be available kitted (DCG440X2) with two 60V MAX* FLEXVOLT® batteries (DCB609) for $729 MSRP or as a bare tool (DCG440B) for $319 MSRP.
