Well yellow fans rejoice, DeWALT has some interesting yard tools they just posted on their website.  I am very excited to get my hands on these.  Thanks to Samuel L and DR99 in the Power Tool Forum for finding this.

The new tools are:

DCST990M1 – 40V MAX XR 15″ Brushless String Trimmer
Weighs 13 lbs

DCBL790M1 – 40V MAX 4AH Brushless Blower
4 Amps, 400 CFM and 120 MPH weighs 9.6lbs

DCHT860M1 – 40V MAX 22″ Hedge Trimmer
22″ blade 3/4″ cutting capacity weighs 11.9 lbs


It will be interesting to see how well the professionals take to this new electric-powered equipment. Professional landscapers have been apprehensive to use electric tools because they just don’t provide the run time or power as their gas counterpart.  However for areas where noise is an issue these tools could be the difference between getting the job or not.  Will these new tools give the more powerful 56V EGO tools a run for their money?

The tools have a 3 year warranty.  For more visit DeWALT
