What’s New at DeWalt Tools
DeWalt has been making some incredible tools for over 90 years. Beginning as a small company formed by the inventor of the radial arm saw, Raymond ReWalt, DeWalt tools have become one of the best brands in the power tool industry.
One of the most interesting tools I found in DeWalt’s new lineup is their 120V Compound Miter Saw. Not only is it a fully-functional compound miter saw, it has the ability to be run corded or cordless. It ships with a 120V AC Adaptor, as well as two 60V batteries that are used simultaneously to achieve a cordless 120V potential. This is incredibly useful if you are working in a situation where you do not have sufficient supply of electricity, and the work you need to do requires a lot of power.
60V MAX Table Saw
The reason that 60V batteries are used in the DeWalt line is because there are many new smaller power tools that can also use them due to their larger capacity and power. 60V tools include a grinder, reciprocating saw, table saw, joist drill and circular saw.
The DeWalt 60V 8-1/4″ Table Saw is an excellent choice for contractors who do not need as much versatility as a compound miter saw, but still need a high-quality saw to make accurate cuts where there is little electricity available. It also has a safety feature where it will not accidentally restart if a battery is added when in the on position. It features rack and pinion adjustment on the fence, making adjustments fast and accurate. It also has on-board storage for most of your needs, such as the fence, wrenches, miter gauge and saw guard.
20V MAX Backwards Compatibility
These 60V batteries are also compatible with older 20V models, which makes their lineup very flexible. The new 20V models include a power drill, impact driver, band saw, circular saw, miter saw, jig saw, reciprocating saw, grease gun, framing nailer, rotary hammer and more.
I am very excited for DeWalt tools and their new lineup, especially with their high-powered cordless saws. When you need a lot of portability but the power of a corded tool, DeWalt makes a very capable, high-quality product. You can find a lot of helpful online resources available at Mississauga Hardware.
