Power equipment firm’s Impact Connect line converts select drivers to cutting tools.
DeWalt unveils Impact Connect copper pipe and PVC/PEX pipe cutter attachments that convert select impact drivers into cutting tools.
DeWalt, a Stanley Black & Decker brand, announced its Impact Connect system, describing it as a new line of attachments to quickly convert select impact drivers into fast, powerful cutting tools.
“Instead of purchasing separate dedicated pipe cutting tools, Impact Connect attachments leverage the power of users’ current impact drivers to perform the job quickly with less cutting effort,” said Doug Redpath, president of hand tools, accessories and storage at Stanley Black & Decker.
Designed to improve user productivity, the system is rolling out two attachments: A copper pipe cutter attachment (DWACPRIR); and a PVC/PEX pipe cutter attachment (DWAPVCIR).
The copper pipe cutter can make four times faster cuts with up to one-inch maximum cut capacity, said the firm. The PVC/PEX pipe cutter can make six times faster cuts with up to two-inch cut capacity in schedule 80 PVC. Both have 360-degree rotation.
The company said they quickly attach to select DeWalt 20V Max and other pro-grade 18V impact drivers,“turning them into powerful cutting tools.”
