DEWALT offers a new compact worksite radio, model DCR018, which can be powered by any of the company’s batteries through the multiport interface.
The radio weighs only 6 lbs. without a battery and features a digital tuner, backlit LCD display with clock and five AM/FM presets. It also features a device storage box that helps to protect electronic devices from jobsite dust and debris and houses USB power and auxiliary ports. USB-compatible devices can be charged via the USB power port when the radio is plugged into a wall outlet and the auxiliary port allows for connection to CD, MP3, and other digital audio devices.
The radio is protected by a roll cage and is expected to retail for $99 to $129. For information, visit www.dewalt.com.
