Transforming the trades: DEWALT introduces the IMPACT CONNECT system

DEWALT unveils IMPACT CONNECT™ copper pipe and PVC/PEX pipe cutter attachments that quickly convert select impact drivers‡ into fast, powerful cutting tools

MISSISSAUGA, ON – NOV 2, 2022 – DEWALT, a Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) brand and leader in total jobsite solutions, today announced the DEWALT IMPACT CONNECT™ system, a new line of attachments to quickly convert select impact drivers into fast, powerful cutting tools. Designed to improve user productivity and provide unmatched value, the DEWALT IMPACT CONNECT™ is rolling out with two attachments: a Copper Pipe Cutter Attachment (DWACPRIR) and PVC/PEX Pipe Cutter Attachment (DWAPVCIR) that quickly attach to select DEWALT® 20V MAX* and other pro-grade 18V Impact Drivers‡ turning them into powerful cutting tools.

“The DEWALT IMPACT CONNECT™ line is a revolutionary new addition to the wide range of tools and accessories tradespeople typically reach for on the jobsite,” said Doug Redpath, President, Hand Tools, Accessories & Storage, at Stanley Black & Decker. “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.”

The DEWALT IMPACT CONNECT™ Copper Pipe Cutter Attachment (DWACPRIR) and PVC/PEX Pipe Cutter Attachment (DWAPVCIR) are the first offerings within this DEWALT platform and are ideal for pipe fitting, plumbing, HVAC, and home renovation. Designed to boost user productivity, the attachments require 100X less cutting effort than a manual cutter and with the quick-change brace system, the attachments are connected in seconds allowing for seamless conversion from pipe cutting tools to a traditional impact driver.

The DEWALT IMPACT CONNECT™ Copper Pipe Cutter Attachment features:

· 4X faster cuts† with up to 1 in. maximum cut capacity

· A 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. cutting wheel optimized for cutting performance and speed (1 in. cutting wheel sold separately).
