Share Article

Just in time to satiate our need to hunt and gather before the winter (and Holiday) season settles in, this October Dewalt launches their first line of compact 12v power tools. Taking their time to work out all the kinks and work in all the innovations that characterize Dewalt tools, the new line is anticipated to be well worth the wait.

Toolsandmachinery.com is excited to incorporate Dewalt's new line of compact cordless power tools. Featuring seven new tools with a structural redesign that moves the battery directly below the handle, the tools now offer a thinner and more ergonomic grip. Despite making the tool handle a pinch larger, the redesign also provides greater stability to an upright tool and makes room for a belt-clip - something always convenient though rarely found on more compact power tools.

In brief, Dewalt's new line-up includes a screwdriver kit, drill driver kit, an impact drill kit, impact wrench kit, workilight, inspection camera kit, and an IR digital thermometer kit making the new line complete, comprehensive, and, indeed, totally impressive.

To get into just a little bit more detail though, Dewalt's DCF610S2 12v Max 1/4" screwdriver kit, at only 2.2 lbs, is super compact to better fit into tight and awkward spaces, and despite its single speed transmission, the screwdriver operates with smooth and powerful precision. The tool also 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.

Similarly, Dewalt's DCD710S2 12v Max 3/8" drill driver kit which, weighing only 2.4 lbs, boasts the same compact design as the screwdriver but with a giant 1500 RPM and a dual-speed transmission which altogether produces the most optimal speed and torque control and sheer super-power. 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.

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 convenient crafting. Also featuring a one-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. Like the others thus far, the kit includes two lithium ion batteries, a fast-charger, bit-tip, belt-clip, and a contractor's bag.

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 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.

As aforementioned Dewalt's new line-up also includes a few of the more unsung jobsite heroes in the form of a new worklight, camera, and thermometer. Dewalt's DCL510 12v Max LED worklight, however, will fast become a craftsmen favorite. With a 360 degree pivoting head for optimal usability and a bright 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.

Similarly, 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.

Lastly, with its primary focus on general versatility, Dewalt's 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 negative 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.

Ultimately, Dewalt's new 12v line-up is a real doozy. With the big guns and the big smarts to ensure you are more than equip to handle your next jobs with powerful and simple sophistication, the line-up is anticipated to make a sincerely veritable splash within the power tooling community.
