Dewalt, a manufacturer of industrial power tools, has brought out a new range of 12V and 18V cordless caulk guns.

The DC540, DC542 and DC547 are said to meet the evolving needs of the professional user facilitating speed, comfort, control, power and efficiency.

According to the company, the tools are said to be versatile and adaptable for a wide range of users because the 12V or 18V power supply ensures that the application covers a wide range.

There is a drip protection feature, designed to briefly reverse the motor when the trigger is released to keep the area clean, and a trigger lock-off switch to prevent it from being accidentally turned on.

The DC540 gun will be equipped with a shorter push rod to match the 310ml cartridge carrier.

The DC542 and the DC547 (K) are designed with a longer push rod for the 600ml sausage, and will come with a standard conversion kit to replace the long barrel with a shorter cartridge carrier and is designed to allow the user to dispense sausage packs as well as cartridges.

Dewalt has said the guns were designed to provide power and speed when extruding the material, and has the pushing force twice the power of a manual gun, which means the range can push out high viscosity urethanes, caulks and adhesives. The caulk guns also have a variable speed dial so the dispensing range can be controlled.
