The G 14 unit offers quiet operation for virtually any sound-sensitive application.
- Product From DEWALT
DEWALT announced its new line of generators (DG3000, DG4400B, DG6300B, DG7000B), which are designed with a CARB compliant DEWALT commercial grade engine, 18V cordless battery start and increased surge capacity. For increased reliability, a proprietary, maintenance-free, brushless alternator is designed to deliver 25 percent more surge watts, allowing the user to start additional high current tools without causing the unit to bog down under demanding workloads. The cordless start feature is reliable in all weather conditions and also provides greater flexibility on the jobsite as it utilizes the same cordless battery system at the core of the DeWALT 18V cordless tool platform.
