Last week the Coptool crew headed off to Nashville, Tennessee to visit the DeWalt Tough in the South Experience where we got a good look at some of the up and coming DeWalt tools and accessories. We saw some new designs on some classic DeWalt tools that shows their commitment to their users as well as their determination to stay ahead of the game. We were very impressed by some of their advancements in jobsite connectivity technology that reflect the rapidly changing dynamics of jobsite productivity.
On our first of many stops, we were introduced to some of the new cordless plumbing and electrical tools. The 20V Max Cable Cutter DCE150B can cut up to 750 MCM copper and 1000 MCM Aluminum. It features an LED light and an inline forward/reverse switch to allow for full one-handed operation. The cutting blade is fully field serviceable and can be changed very quickly. DeWalt then introduced us to their all new ASCR Cable Cutter tool DCE155D1. This tool is mainly designed for electrician use on power lines. It has a guillotine style blade that cuts 750 MCM copper, 1000 MCM aluminum, and 1590 ASCR cable. Like the DCE150B, it also features a bright LED light as well as a field serviceable blade for quick replacements.
We then saw the DeWalt 20V Max Dieless (DCE350M2) and Died (DCE300M2) Cable Crimping Tools. The dieless crimper has a universal 4 pusher design and crimps #8 – 750 MCM Copper and Aluminum
