DeWalt Introduces New Line of Corded Tools

dewalt-logo.gifWhile everyone else is scrambling to make the smallest 12-volt tool possible, DeWalt has been concentrating on larger, more powerful items. It's a smart move because when the dust settles on lithium-ion mania, we're all going to realize that we still need to install ledger boards and drill holes through LVLs.

The first tools in the line consist of two 1/2" drills, a portable band saw, and a stud and joist drill. They all come equipped with big 10-11 amp motors and improved grip design. The drills contain something called a, "proprietary electronic control module," which automatically adjusts speed and torque to the task at hand.

These tools will be in stores in December.
