DEWALT’S® New Extended Performance and Wearable Backing Flap Disc Abrasives Offer Life, Speed and Value Contractors Demand
DEWALT has announced the launch of a full range of Wearable Backing Flap Discs and Extended Performance Flap Discs that include industry-first innovations that deliver increased life and superior performance when compared to competitive products. These discs are ideal for welders, fabricators, and professionals working in fabricating shops, shipyards, and on jobsites. The Wearable Backing Flap Discs are designed for a number of applications including weld blending, material removal, and welding preparation.
“A frustration common among professionals is that half of the cloth is still on the flap disc when the disc itself can no longer be used,” said Brad Nohr, Product Manager, DEWALT. “Therefore, we designed the new line of Wearable Backing Flap Discs with a backing that wears away as the disc is used to allow full access to the cloth. Likewise, we addressed user concerns about the speed of flap discs versus grinding wheels by engineering our new Extended Performance Flap Discs that deliver 40 percent faster removal than conventional flap discs.” Read more

The Milwaukee Hole Hawg right angle drill has been “the standard” for most plumbing and electrical tradesmen for years. Every HVAC contractor I know has a war story about this tool.

Now that DeWalt has launched this highly competitive tool, we are curious if will they be releasing their version of Milwaukee’s Superhawg next in a new Timberwolf model. Below is the press release on this well anticipated launch. Read more
