Great sound
Great sound on this beastly radio, has decent bass and sound quality. Very durable, knocked it over and it’s dropped a few times, still works. I like the 2 outlets on the side for charging batteries or plugging a tool in. I even bought the Bluetooth device to use my phone with, which is stellar by the way that it plugs right into the radio. Only downside is lugging it around long distances on the job site, can get heavy after walking it with carrying your tools. It’s my garage radio now, love it!

I've owned and used this daily for about two years. It generally hangs from the roll bar of my JD Gator and so far has faithfully performed as advertised. It's been out in light rain and snow, and the large controls allow usage while wearing gloves. I also have the bluetooth module, and it works well with my iPhone to about 30-40 feet. I'm a satisfied DeWalt consumer.

Excellent Radio
Just purchased this radio, and I'm very happy with its performance. Plugged in, we can listen to the radio while it charges the batteries. unplugged we can listen to the radio while it runs off the batteries. The pre-set stations are always programmed and we don't lose them when we unplug the radio or loss power like some of the other brands. We have two extra outlets on the radio, so we're not worried about unplugging it to run a saw. Rugged design is great for me, I'm super tough on all my tools. overall this is well worth the money.

Background hum sound when using the radio at the same time as charging a battery pack. Also after 1 1/2 years the memory of the presets stations and clock gets lost when the radio is turned off

Great radio
Having the built in chagrin is key and the plugs in the side are nice. USB port doesn’t let me play music from my phone so just using an aux cord. That’s the only complaint
