DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, announced the launch of its new line of corded tools in an effort to increase market share among corded users. The new line of tools includes ½" drills (DWD215G and DWD210G), a deep-cut band saw (DWM120) and frac12;" stud and joist drill (DWD460). DeWALT built these tools from the ground up and designed them with new innovations including a high-performance motor, electronic controls, new grip designs and serviceable parts. Available in December 2008, these tools will help to improve the drilling and cutting experience for professional end users and provide new developments in a category that has not seen innovation in more than a decade.
