TOWSON, Md., June 4, 2013.

Today, DEWALT® announces the introduction of its new 8V MAX* Gyroscopic Screwdriver.

The 8V MAX* Gyroscopic Screwdriver [DCF680] includes gyroscopic technology often found in electronic devices that has now been integrated into a professional-grade 8V MAX* screwdriver. The new 8V MAX* screwdriver is operated by gyroscopic sensors inside of the tool that sense the user's wrist motions—right to tighten screws, left to loosen or remove screws. The DCF680 is an ideal tool for any professional user looking for a compact, portable screwdriver with precise speed control, for applications such as electrical, woodworking, HVAC, maintenance and repair, and hardware installation.

"Although gyroscopic technology is not new to electronics, it is one of the newest forms of technologies to be used in power tools.

DEWALT's DCF680 is the first professional grade, battery-powered screwdriver to incorporate the use of gyroscopic technology to provide end user productivity," says Jim Watson, Group Product Manager, DEWALT.

The variable speed control sets the DCF680 gyroscopic screwdriver apart from traditional stick screwdrivers and makes applications easy, and the adjustable two-position handle allows for operation in either in-line or pistol grip.

The tool is powered by an 8V MAX* lithium ion battery that provides the performance required by end users to complete jobsite applications.

Users will also benefit from the LED ring light that allows illumination in confined areas, the Battery State of Charge displayed on top of the tool that notifies the user when to charge the battery, and the one-handed loading 1/4" hex chuck that accepts 1" bit tips.

The DCF680N1 (single-battery kit) will retail for $89.97 and the DCF680N2 (two-battery kit) will retail for $99.00. Both kits come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back guarantee, and will be available in August wherever DEWALT products are sold.

* Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 8 volts. Nominal voltage is 7.2.

Beginning every month I check several international DeWAlt web sites

It looks like it is already available in Europe / August 2013

I found it listed in the Czech Quarterly brochure


Price is half way good / not as good as in USA;

I´ll take a trip within 14 days and pick up about 5-10 units

(obviously first a few phone calls, which dealers have it in stock)

cheers !

Yes. The above press release dates from June 4th (US release)

This is now becoming available in the EU.

The new brochure is coming this month.

I usually check the UK version and the one from my country, but the brochure varies a bit for each country.

We can never compete with the US prices.

Check the crazy differences on 36V tools...

So do you run a webstore or something that buy in "big"?
