FlexVolt blower DCBL772

Recommended Posts

Sacfasteners on IG posted a teaser of a new blower coming out May ‘19.

 

In-line design. 600 CFM apparently. Interesting battery placement. Hopefully way better balanced and lighter than the current FlexVolt blower, which is pretty poor in my opinion.

I have to disagree me and everyone who has used my 60v blower loves it. Me as well

 

Now keep in mind I use it in a construction environment not landscaping

Had one and sold it. Even the gen2 Milwaukee is better. This new one might have a shot at taking the crown from Ego and Makita. The 60v is good compared to the little dust blowers that all brands seem to have clones of.

Assume $249 is bare tool?

Probably. The OPE kits are generally 400+ CAD. Some occasional crazy deals pop up though.

The old design was a design based off of gas blowers. I see a loss of efficiency due to the battery being directly behind the air intake. The inline design is a more efficient design.

Although the model number given with that price is dcbl772X1 which the X1 is the code for a kit with one 3.0/9.0 battery.

Looks similar to the ego....and would be more powerful..nice find 👍

until the commercial Ego arrives. that thing has 600 cfm. I'm not sure on the mph. So they would be pretty equal in power.

Dewalt has gotta start bundling these high draw tools with at least the 3/9ah...the 20v  lawnmower is great with a couple 9ah... milwaukee is giving free 12ah with all HO tools ..and it's priced well below the flexvolt.

you buy it at home depot?  got a store sku?  i dont see it on their site.
Yes, have to search in individual stores. Not all put them out on the shelves or in overhead yet. No SKU available as it's not in their system under one.

Like the FV string trimmer. Big battery, small charger.

Probably to keep the price down for the homeowner buying his first FV tool. The gateway tool.


Anybody that uses FV for a living already has several fast chargers.
