You asked, We requested and at last…. Dewalt Delivered! The Cordless XR 18v Planer and Mitre Saw are coming!
Over here at ITS HQ we’ve been on an ongoing mission to bring you all the latest news from the world of power tools. For those in the trade, in particular those carpenters or woodworkers amongst you will certainly want to hear this!
This week we got our first glance at the upcoming Dewalt DCP580 cordless 18v planer and the DCS365 Mitre Saw whilst at the Dewalt national conference.
Dewalt Cordless Planer DCP580 – What we know!
Very Sneaky Peak – Snapped at the Dewalt Conference!
Joins the XR Range: Well, first things first as you’ve guessed it will of course form part of the very impressive and popular 18v XR li-ion range, so it’ll be compatible with all XR batteries, from 2.0Ah – 5.0Ah. Runtimes at this point are not confirmed.
Brushless Motor: Yes that’s right it is going to feature a brushless motor so we know we’re going to get very impressive runtimes and an increased RPM over brushed versions.
DCP580: That is going to be the model number so keep an eye out for the listing on its.co.uk, it will of course be available in with a variety of battery options, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s going to be a DCB580M2 or a DCB580P2 which will be the 2 x 4.0Ah battery & the 2 x 5.0Ah battery package respectively.
March 2016 Release Date: The word we have is that they’re due to land in the UK in March, so will be ready for sale in either March or early April but we’ll be sure to let you know. To make sure that you’re one of the first to get one use our handy ‘pre-order’ button on the product page. We’ll take your order and let you know as soon as its in and arrange delivery at a time to suit you.
Dewalt DCS365 Cordless Mitre Saw – What we know!
Joins the XR Range: Like the Planer above the Mitre Saw will be joining the 18v XR li-ion range, so it’ll be compatible with all XR batteries, from 2.0Ah – 5.0Ah. Finally giving you a mitre saw that can be as portable as a circular saw.
DCS365: Is the model number we’ve been given at this point. You may have also seen the DCS361 over across the pond in America but we are informed that this is a different model (although we are unsure what the differences are). Again, I’d imagine that its going to be available in a variety of battery options, all of which will become clearer as time goes on.
March 2016 Release Date: Much like the Planer we have been told to expect the DCS365 in March of 2016, again if we get more concrete information we’ll be sure to let you know, and we’ll get a Pre-order system up and running as soon as possible.
