We recently discussed the new 12V Max cordless screwdriver that Dewalt is introducing as part of their upcoming line of compact cordless tools. We’re now going to talk about the 3/8″ drill driver (DCD710S2) that Dewalt will be releasing at the same time.
Of the seven tools Dewalt will introduce as part of their new 12V MAX lithium ion cordless line this fall, the most demanded tool will probably be the cordless screwdriver (DCF610S2) due to its small size and user-friendly features. Dewalt designed the screwdriver to be compact yet powerful enough to handle the intense fastening demands of professionals. […]

Joby’s flex-leg Gorillatorch flashlight was introduced months ago, and it appears to have become quite popular. We certainly love it!

Bosch’s PS41-2A 12V pocket impact driver has just started popping up at online retailers. This update to Bosch’s PS40 impact driver is not as huge of a step forward compared to PS21 Pocket Driver and PS31 Compact Corded Drill, but it’s still quite an improvement. As we mentioned in our sneak peak a few months […]

Judging by the attention it’s been receiving lately, Bosch’s new GCM12SD Axial-Glide sliding dual-bevel miter saw must have been the crown jewel of their media event. Bosch’s engineers managed to increase the work capacity of this miter saw while shrinking its footprint, making it a compact high-performance monster of a saw.
