Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


DeWalt 20V Max Outdoor Power Equipment Preview

DeWalt 20V Max Outdoor Power Equipment: DeWalt 20V Handheld Blower DCBL720P1 application

Dewalt is launching two new outdoor power equipment products, the DeWalt 20V Max XR String Trimmer (DCST920P1) and DeWalt 20V Max XR Handheld Blower (DCBL720P1). Starting with our review of the DeWalt 40V Max Blower, the company’s OPE debut was solid. Not to be outdone, DeWalt’s 40V Max String Trimmer was also an excellent design. Stepping down from the 40V Max line, the DeWalt 20V Max Outdoor Power Equipment products seem a bit ambitious – particularly considering that lithium-ion OPE is trending the opposite direction.


The DeWalt 20V Max Outdoor Power Equipment line is aimed at construction and maintenance professionals. This makes sense from the standpoint of simply being able to blow debris away or quickly trim weeds from the area you need work in. It’s certainly a compelling change from the target of a homeowner that needs to maintain an entire lawn.


“It seemed counter-intuitive for DeWalt to produce a 20V Max OPE line given the trend of increading voltage. When DeWalt explained their target user wasn’t the homeowner, but the construction and maintenance pro, it all made sense. They’ve developed a lightweight pair of products that run on DeWalt’s popular 20V Max batteries. There’s no need for additional chargers or batteries if you’re already in the system. The string trimmer and blower are always ready for use so you’re back to the job at hand quickly.”

– Pro Tool Reviews Managing Editor, Kenny Koehler

Neither one of these products are designed to be the landscaping tools that DeWalt’s 40V OPE line is. These are simply an extension of the 20V Max line that give pro users more options to make the jobsite an easier place to work.
