Best New DeWalt Tools
DeWalt PowerShift Battery System
DeWalt signaled its next big focus just in time for World of Concrete 2024. The DeWalt PowerShift battery system is an expansion of the 60V line, but it’s not a direct FlexVolt counterpart. The battery is designed to target tools that currently run on small gas engines, pointing to an even higher output and capacity than FlexVolt can reach. However, FlexVolt batteries are compatible with the new DeWalt tools on the system using an adapter as a way to extend runtime, though it doesn’t appear they’re designed to act as the primary power source.
DeWalt PowerShift Plate Compactor DCPS7154
One of six new DeWalt PowerShift tools, the plate compactor features a 15.7-inch plate and delivers 3370 ft-lbs of force. The design team paid close attention to the ergonomics of the control layout and gave it a folding handle.
DeWalt PowerShift Rammer DCPS660
Shifting from the broader plate compactor to a smaller rammer, the DCPS660 offers 2660 ft-lbs of force. The design includes vibration-reducing insulators and a two-position handle that holds the controls.
DeWalt PowerShift Backpack Vibrator DCPS310
The first of two concrete vibrator tools, DeWalt’s backpack vibrator has a working weight of 25 pounds, including the DeWalt PowerShift battery. A roll cage protects the tool, while a hi-vis harness design keeps the operator more visible.
DeWalt PowerShift Powerpack Vibrator DCPS320
Designed to sit on the ground or have a second person carry the Powerpack, this vibrator takes the majority of the weight off the operator. When you’re using it solo, DeWalt Tool Connect gives you the option to activate the unit remotely. There’s also a shoulder strap to make transportation easier.
DeWalt PowerShift Power Screed DCPS330
The power screed has an adjustable handle and controls you can mount to either side, making for a highly customizable setup.
DeWalt PowerShift Core Drill DCD150 and Stand DCPS151
Part of DeWalt’s Perform & Protect lineup, the core drill includes bind-up protection to prevent over-rotation and reduce the risk of injury. The overall size of the tool and stand lends itself to close wall or ceiling applications. Pair it with DeWalt’s 20V Max water supply to avoid having to find a hose bib and dragging long hoses around.
DEWALT 12V/20VMax XR High Precision 3 X 360° Line Laser DCLE34033
DeWalt took the basic design of its previous 3 x 360 laser and boosted the accuracy by 40%. The same features we enjoyed on that model are still present, such as the 12V Max/20V Max multiple voltage capability and fine adjustment knob. The big change for the DCLE34033 is that it’s now rated to ±1/8-inch at 50 feet. The previous model was ±1/8-inch at 30 feet.
Price: $699.99 with the laser, laser detector, laser detector bracket, 20V Max 2.0Ah battery, charger, ceiling bracket, and target card
DeWalt 60V Max Premium Low Noise Leaf Blower DCBL777
DeWalt made a couple of big upgrades to its flagship 60V Max blower. On the performance side, you get an outstanding 780 CFM and 157 MPH for blower force. The design team also turned to the noise-reducing qualities of foam to bring the rated noise level to less than 63 decibels in all three operating modes. Both areas were points of concern with the DCBL772, and it looks like DeWalt is vaulting into the conversation concerning the best cordless leaf blowers.
Price: $269 bare, $399 kit with a battery and charger
DeWalt 60V Max 14-Inch Top Handle Chainsaw DCCS674
DeWalt is entering the cordless top handle chainsaw space with a 60V Max model that has the equivalent power of 35cc gas tools. That’s 2.4 HP, and the saw’s brushless motor keeps the chainsaw running at 23 m/s on the top end. The downside of operating at a higher power level is that the saw’s 6.0-pound powerhead weight means the working weight is noticeably more than you’ll get with something like Echo’s lightweight DCS-2500T. However, the higher performance level will make quicker work of your cuts.
Price: $499 bare, $749 kit with two 3.0/9.0Ah batteries and a charger
