This October 2010 Dewalt is pleased to launch their new a long anticipated line of cordless compact power tools. Accordingly, craftsmen everywhere are excited to invite the new line into their power tool repertoires. Dewalt’s new line-up includes seven new tools: a screwdriver kit best corded electric impact wrench , drill driver kit, an impact drill kit, impact wrench kit, worklight, inspection camera kit, and an IR digital thermometer kit making the new line complete, comprehensive, and, indeed, totally impressive. These newbies also feature a structural redesign that moves the battery directly below the handle. As such, the tools now offer a thinner, more ergonomic grip and the space for a belt-clip – something always convenient though rarely found on more compact power tools.
In greater detail, and beginning with the more unsung products in the new line-up, Dewalt’s DCT410S1 12v MAX inspection camera is an infinitely cool little gadget. With a three foot long, waterproof, snake-like cable extension which allows you to see into, record, and photograph a jobsite’s more or less impossible spaces (like inside pipes, behind walls, or etc), the camera is ideal for tight, awkward, and generally impossible working environments. The camera also features a 3.5″ LCD screen monitor (with a 3x zoom capability) that completely detaches for better visibility in strange and strained positions. The monitor also recharges directly from the camera handle so you may simply reattach the monitor or replace the battery to keep working. Said kit includes one lithium ion battery, a charger, storage box, and hook and magnet tools to help you retrieve otherwise not-retrievable objects.
Similarly, Dewalt’s DCL510 12v MAX LED worklight is also expected to become a fast craftsmen favorite. With a 360 degree pivoting head for optimal usability and a bright light out-put of 130 Lumens for an always enlightening performance, the worklight keeps your workspace bright and visible. Additionally, the light is equip with both a kick-stand and a powerful magnet to allow hands-free use in a variety of convenient places and positions.
As for the thermometer, with its primary focus on general versatility, the DCT414S1 12v MAX infrared digital thermometer scans for temperature changes with color-coded accuracy. With beeping audio alarms and the tool’s patent-pending LED hot (which reads red) and cold (which reads blue) spot indicator, this thermometer quickly locates temperature fluctuations (between -20 degrees Fahrenheit and 932 degrees Fahrenheit) with true and simple to read accuracy displayed on a clear, back-lit analog screen. Also including one lithium ion battery, a charger, and kit box, the thermometer is both complete and precise for convenient and universal use.
Getting back to the “big guns” of the operation, Dewalt’s DCD710S2 12v MAX 3/8″ drill driver kit, weighs only 2.4 lbs rendering the thing a super compact super-fighter. With a slim design to better fit into tight and awkward spaces, and with a giant 1500 RPM and a dual-speed transmission the tool produces the most optimal speed and torque control, big power, and comfortable workability. The drill driver also has a bright LED light to improve visibility, a belt-clip for comfort and portability and includes two lithium ion batteries, a fast-charger, bit-tip, and contractor’s bag for organization, storage, and transportation.
Similarly, Dewalt’s DCF610S2 12v MAX 1/4″ screwdriver kit, at a grand total of only 2.2 lbs, boasts the same compact design as the drill driver, and despite its single speed transmission, the screwdriver operates with smooth and powerful precision. The tool additionally has three LED lights on its front to ensure virtually shadowless visibility, a one-handed loading quarter inch hex chuck, and that good-old belt clip for convenient mobility. The kit also includes two lithium ion batteries, a fast-charger, bit-tip, and a contractor’s bag.
As for Dewalt’s DCF815S2 12v MAX 1/4″ impact driver kit, the tool is also lightweight and compact at only 2.3 lbs, and with three LED lights at the front of the tool providing shadowless illumination during virtually any work environment, the impact driver provides the utmost in convenient crafting. Also featuring that handed loading quarter inch hex chuck and a huge 950 in/lbs of max torque, the tool is both seriously powerful and simple to operate as well. In addition to super-power and comfortable operation the kit also includes two lithium ion batteries, a fast-charger, bit-tip, belt-clip, and a contractor’s bag.
Lastly and likewise, Dewalt’s DCF813S2 12v MAX 3/8″ impact wrench kit shares the slim and lightweight body design of its above counterpart while offering a truly gigantic 1150 in/lbs of max torque for the most intense power and a huge array of industrial applications. Three LED lights at the front of the tool offer virtually unimpaired visibility while a hog ring anvil contributes to easy operation and fast socket changes. The kit additionally includes two lithium ion batteries, a fast-charger, bit-tip, a contractor’s bag, and ZERO belt-clips; I repeat there is not a belt-clip in this kit.
