Just announced is Dewalt’s new vacuum that checks all the boxes for those working with Silica.

Inside Look | Dewalt Flexvolt 60V Max 7-1/4″ Circular Saw DCS575

The Dewalt DCS-575 Flexvolt 60V Max 7-1/4” Circular Saw has now been available for over 2 years- and in that time, Dewalt has seen more than its fair share of competition from NEW cordless circular saws entering the market- even their own rear-handled DCS577 from 2017. YET in spite of the numerous updated models available, many Dewalt fans have stayed loyal to their original DCS575 with its brushless motor, electric brake, and of course its RIGHT-SIDED blade(more…)

Dewalt 20V Woodworking Tool Expansion

Dewalt 20V Woodworking

Dewalt jumped right in with an impressive upgrade to their cordless woodworking arsenal, new brushless jigsaws (top handle & barrel grip) are a no brainer but also now had 5” random orbital sander, planer and trim router which we’ve found to be extremely handy cordless tools. None of these are new to the cordless world but for those on team yellow these are a very welcome addition. We are excited to get our hands on all of these, some launching pretty quickly, others early 2019. Check out the full Dewalt press release below, more info to follow!

Tool Batteries Are Now 8.0Ah, 12.0Ah & Beyond

Dewalt FlexVolt 12.0Ah

Over the last few weeks we have seen the launch of new battery technology from Metabo and Dewalt which puts new Amp/Hour ratings (used as an 18/20V) at 4.0Ah for slim, 8.0Ah for standard size and 12.0Ah for the large batteries. These launches come only days ahead of Milwaukee’s big 2018 New Product Symposium #NPS18 so we anticipate some news coming from the Red Camp as well. These new batteries are not just a little more runtime however we are seeing real increase of peak watt output!

Dust Extractor Testing – Tool Box Buzz, Pro Tool Reviews, Coptool

2017 hepa vacuums

Towards the end of last year when the OSHA silica rules were going into effect we were getting lots of questions about dust extractors specific to Silica, how they are each viewed under OSHA’s Table 1 standards and of course how each performed head to head. At the time there were no head-to-heads out there on these vacs so the Coptool Team got on the case to put together a basic Vacuum Head-to-Head to help users gain more information.

Since our video first aired several manufacturers have made updates to their products with lower prices and/or included HEPA filters which is awesome news for everyone! Also two of our tool reviewing hero’s Pro Tool Reviews and Tool Box Buzz jumped on the case to do their own vacuum comparisons, with some great testing rigs and pointed out some additional information that we might have glossed over. We really think both of these groups do top notch tool test, Clint’s team at Pro Tool Review is always very detailed and Rob’s Crew are mostly professional contractors with some great insights.  (more…)
