The model number of a DEWALT product identifies which specific tool it is. The type number identifies the multiple versions of a specific model number. A type 1 version can have different parts to a type 2 version of a particular model number. The type number is as important to know as the model number in order to ensure you receive the correct service part(s). Some models can have multiple type numbers or, in some cases, no type number.
On DEWALT tools the model and type can be found on the rating label or name plate. Below are some examples of labels where we have highlighted the model number and type.
