Here’s a first look at the new Dewalt FlexVolt cordless snow blower!
The first-ever Dewalt cordless snow blower, described specifically as a snow thrower, features a brushless motor, single stage auger design, and 21″ snow-clearing width.
It’s got LED headlights on both sides, an electric 2-way chute control, push button start, ECO mode for prolonged battery life, boost mode for quicker driveway cleanings, 9-inch wheels, and quick-fold handles for convenient storage.
The electric chute control paddles are located at the operator’s fingertips.
The kit includes (2) 4Ah (20V Max 12Ah equivalent) batteries, and (2) DCB1104 single-port chargers.
Price: $999 + $99 shipping
ETA: September 2023
Since the cordless snow blower comes with (2) batteries and (2) chargers, it’s safe to assume it requires both for operation, despite being described as a 60V Max tool. That’s standard for a lot of the cordless snow blowers currently on the market.
It seems that Dewalt equipped the cordless snow blower with premium features not found on a lot of competing models in the same sub-$1000 price range.
The electric 2-way chute control feature in particular sounds interesting and potentially convenient. Having ECO and Boost modes gives users the best of all worlds.
The snow blower/thrower looks to have a very compact footprint, which makes it appeal to me even more. This looks good.
This is a very exciting development, at least in my opinion.
I also find it interesting that Dewalt beat both Makita and Milwaukee Tool in the cordless snow blower race. Milwaukee has been working on one, and Makita tends to be highly focused on cordless outdoor power tools.
Then again, Stanley Black & Decker, Dewalt’s parent company, owns a growing a portfolio of outdoor power tool brands, such as Cub Cadet and Troy-Built. I shouldn’t be as surprised by this news as I am.
