Much appreciated by US Troops in Afghanistan!
My son Joshua bought a DC012 worksite radio in January this year, just prior to his deployment in the 1st Platoon, 994th Engineering Company, attached to the 864th Engineering Brigade. He is currently at a remote location in Afghanistan building a camp for future troops to come to. I spoke to him via satellite phone yesterday and asked how was his radio working out. He just positively gushed at how much it has been appreciated by his fellow troops, to be able to listen to tunes while working away. As an example, he cited some British soldiers who heard the music the other day and started rocking out to Aretha Franklin. Apparently the radio has big one of the biggest hits at the remote camp, and has really helped to brighten our son's and his fellow troops days, in what is otherwise a pretty forbidding environment.

I just wanted to say Thank You to DeWalt for designing this radio that is so useful for remote locations. It has surely helped to brighten Troops days.

Just a suggestion but would you ever consider donating radios to each unit in Afghanistan; or offering at a significant discount. My son's needs are taken care of, but you have a product here which could really help brighten the days for America's Finest in their overseas duties.

Best Regards,
Tom Sheeran

This radio’s volume can be set very low for inside use or very loud for outside use and still be heard clearly. The dynamic range is far better than other job site radio I’ve tried.

This is a great radio. i do find that sometimes that some stations don't come in clear when on other radios they do but that doesn't happen very often. I always look forward to using it and it has 5 memory buttons that always work perfect. it is by far loud enough for me and i love it.

Rugged and reliable
I had a hard time finding many reviews, so I bought from what I knew about Dewalt. It is as rugged and reliable as my 6yr old Hammer drill. The reception matches that of an automobile, and sound quality is just shy of the bose sys. It doen't have cd but Ipods are cheaper anyway, and they plug in as do the droid. It plays for a hard 2 days on 1 battery. And the 3 way is as good as I had hoped. Runs Grinder, saw, radio, charges battery, and looks the best!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
