It still holds up.
Higher voltage = lower current.
Lower current, less heat.
Less heat, longer life.

I still can’t believe dewalt missed the boat on 120v tools.
That would have been epic, dual voltage 60/120v, 120VAC.
That made so much sense for high demand cordless.

They need a 120v dust extractor

I guess I'm missing something here or am I? Doesn't DeWALT have 120v tools? or are you saying they need to expand the dual 60v line with more tools other than the DHS790 and the DHS716 miter saws? The 120v table saw could be a true replacement to their hybrid size of table saw. The 120v vac could come in both the "shop vac" style and the "dust extractor" style of the full size vacs DeWALT offers. I would like to see an option to have 4 batteries in each vac for 120v performance but double the runtime.

2x 60v Batteries to hit 120VDC.

Adaptor/cord to run off 120VAC.

Specifically for Rotary Hammer/Demo, industrial stuff, concrete saws etc. (Not just a miter or table saw)

They could have had superior platform to Milwaukee’s new stuff.

That’s why it seems like a missed opportunity.

 

The ability to run off both power sources is the real game changer.

 

WOULD HAVE BEEN EPIC!!!
