DeWalt has recently launched its new cordless brushless grinders, including the 20V MAX XR 4.5″ Angle Grinder (DCG413R2), the 20V MAX XR 5″ Flathead Grinder (DCG413FR2) and the 20V MAX XR 1-1/2″ Die Grinder (DCG426M2). The new cordless grinders feature efficient, brushless motors that are durable, don’t require brush changes and offer long runtime.
The new 20V MAX XR Angle Grinder (DCG413R2) features a brake, E-Clutch System and Kickback Brake. The brake quickly brings the wheel to a stop in two seconds or less when the trigger is released. The E-Clutch System automatically shuts down the motor when a wheel pinch 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 toward the user.
Additionally, the grinder features a One-Touch Guard, which allows for single-action adjustments to change guard position. The grinder also comes with two removable mesh screens that help to block debris from entering the tool during use. Finally, the grinder features an on/off trigger switch that has a no-volt release function, to stop accidental turn-on. In the event of a power outage or other unexpected shut down, the trigger switch will need to be cycled (turned off and then on) to restart tool. At only 3.75 lbs. (tool only) and 12.2″ long, the tool achieves up to 850 MWO and is part of the 20V MAX system of tools. In addition to the DCG413R2, there is also a flathead version of the unit DCG413FR2, which offers similar features to the unit above, but incorporates a thin gear case that allows users to grinder in tighter spaces.
Each of the tools mentioned above is part of the DeWalt Perform and Protect line of tools designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
The new 20V MAX XR Variable Speed Die Grinder (DCG426M2) features a three-speed selector switch allowing users to choose zero to 10,000 RPM, zero to 17,500 RPM and zero to 25,000 RPM. Each speed selection starts with zero as the unit also has a variable speed rocker switch that allows the user to control speed within those ranges based on the pressure applied to the selector. The unit has also been outfitted with a three LED light ring that helps to illuminate the work surface during use.
The grinders come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
