The DEWALT PERFORM & PROTECT™ line of tools and accessories is YOUR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE™ on the job. They are designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: dust containment, control, or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
Tools can bind up in normal drilling or cutting applications which can cause injury to the user, or damage the tool.
Our DEWALT Anti-Rotation E-CLUTCH® System detects motion of the tool and shuts it down in bind up situations, helping to minimize sudden torque reaction compared to standard clutches. The Kickback Brake feature stops the wheel when a pinch is detected.
Prolonged exposure to vibration may result in fatigue, pain, numbness, increased sensitivity to cold, and decreased sensitivity to touch in fingers and hands. The DEWALT SHOCKS-ACTIVE VIBRATION CONTROL® SYSTEM reduces vibration felt at the handles.*
