GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Acme Tools, a leading authorized online retailer of tools and equipment, launched the new DeWalt FLEXVOLT™ system online at AcmeTools.com and is accepting pre-orders for the new battery technology. DeWalt recently unveiled the FLEXVOLT system, which features the world's first battery that automatically changes voltage when the user changes tools, and Acme Tools is one of the first DeWalt Authorized Online Retailers taking advance orders for delivery when the product becomes available in mid-to-late August.
The FLEXVOLT battery powers a new lineup of brushless 60V MAX and 120V MAX FLEXVOLT tools. The innovative technology is backwards compatible with most existing DeWalt 20V MAX tools and chargers. The FLEXVOLT battery provides up to 4X runtime and more than 3X battery power versus DeWalt 18V NiCad.
The key to this technology is the ability of the FLEXVOLT battery to switch between DeWalt tools of varying voltages whether it be 20V MAX, 60V MAX or 120V MAX.
Two FLEXVOLT batteries together power the new DeWalt 120V MAX tools meaning that high power tool applications that previously could only be accomplished by corded tools can now be performed with the new FLEXVOLT system of cordless tools. This advanced battery technology will allow for the full transition to cordless tools on construction jobsites.
The FLEXVOLT battery powers five new 60V MAX tools and two new 120V MAX tools. The new 60V MAX FLEXVOLT brushless tools include a 7-1/4" circular saw, 4-1/2"-6" grinder, reciprocating saw, 1/2" VSR stud and joist drill and 8-1/4" table saw. The new 120V MAX tools are a 12" fixed head compound miter saw and 12" sliding compound miter saw.
