Product Overview


The jobsite doesn't always have to be a mess of noise from power tools and construction, crank up the tunes with DeWALT's Compact Worksite Radio. Built to handle the harsh environments and demands of the jobsite, DeWALT's DCR018R Radio features a rugged roll cage and weather resistant speakers. Capable of running off both AC/DC and 12V to 20V batteries, the radio quickly transforms from a portable jobsite radio to a USB device charging station. With the choice of a built-in AM/FM digital tuner, auxiliary ports to connect IPods, MP3 players and more, you play what you want to hear on the jobsite with clear sound quality.

  • AC/DC power allowing the flexibility to be powered by AC power cord or DeWalt power tool batteries
  • Device storage box protects digital audio devices from jobsite debris and damage
  • USB power port allows devices to be charged via USB when radio is plugged into AC wall outlet or when running off DEWALT battery pack
  • 3.5mm Auxiliary input allows for connection to CD, MP3, portable satellite receivers and other digital audio devices

Another jobsite radio.
Jobsite radios take a beating and don't last more than a few years, if that long. Lost count of how many radios I've owned over my 32+ year career. The Dewalt DCR018R is the latest. I like that it runs off of the 20v batteries because sometimes there are several trades on a job, all running equipment on multiple splitters from two outlets in the house. I have gotten five days of music on a single 5ah battery before recharging over the weekend. So far, it's a decent radio. We'll see how long it lasts.

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.
