Dewalt introduces the 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger (DCB412), compatible with all 40V MAX* outdoor power equipment batteries. Hooked up to a truck or strapped to a mower to charge on-the-go, it provides convenient mobile charging for landscapers. Including a truck power input, a mower battery connection, and a mower mount, the charger can be attached to a mower in a variety of orientations to make the battery secure and accessible.

With the ability to charge any of the Dewalt 40V MAX* batteries from a vehicle's 12V power outlet or by tapping directly into the mower battery, the charger enables batteries to be conveniently recharged throughout the day. The 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger includes an automatic shut-off which prevents excessive discharge of vehicle's or mower's battery. In addition, the 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger features an LED indicator that diagnoses battery charge status, whether it's charged or charging, and alerts the user to a power line problem. The indicator also informs the user of a power line status, whether the battery needs to be replaced, as well as if it's too hot or too cold to use.

The 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger adds to the growing solutions offered for Dewalt Outdoor Power Equipment. With the 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger and the existing 6-Pack Charging Station, a landscaping crew has the ability to work through the whole day. Without charging during the day, six batteries can power a day's worth of work, equating to up to 90 residential properties per week**. In addition, the user can plug the 6-Pack Charging Station into a wall outlet and charge a 7.5Ah battery in under an hour. The Mower/Vehicle charger can charge the 7.5Ah battery within 4 hours.

Available in summer 2017, the 40V MAX* Mower/Vehicle Charger will be available where Dewalt products are sold for $79 MSRP. Also new this spring are the 7.5Ah kits available exclusively at Turf & Equipment dealerships, including the String Trimmer (DCST990X1), Handheld Blower (DCBL790X1), Hedge Trimmer (DCHT860X1), Pole Hedge Trimmer (DCHT895X1) and Chainsaw (DCCS690X1). The 40V MAX* 7.5Ah premium battery is the system's largest capacity battery providing 300 watt hours of energy (87% more capacity than the 4.0Ah battery) to deliver maximum runtime.
