What do you think that Dewalt will come out with in 2019?
Shown above are the new Dewalt brushless cordless woodworking tools – a router, jigsaws, and a sander. All but maybe the router are available now, with the router expected to ship maybe this month or next.
I would guess that Dewalt will continue along these lines, producing more 20V Max brushless power tools. For example, maybe we’re due to see a compact Dewalt circular saw for cutting flooring, trim, and other such materials?
What cordless tools do you want Dewalt to come out with in 2019?
Me? I’m waiting for a FlexVolt 120V Max 10″ portable table saw with AC adapter, or a USA version of their FlexVolt 10″ miter saw. Not because I want them personally, but because I think it will be the next step forward in the very competitive cordless power tool industry.
The Dewalt FlexVolt battery system is now 2.5 years old, and with other brands having closed the performance gap, Dewalt could and should have something up their sleeve to push things forward a little further. I just can’t put my finger on what that could be. I know that readers have been asking for a 60V Max AC adapter, but I’m not sure that’s something they’re willing to do.
Honestly, I’m also really hoping that Dewalt breaths new life into their 12V Max cordless power tool platform. With Stanley Black & Decker sure to launch a new Craftsman 12V Max cordless power tool lineup, maybe that will lower some of the costs related to developing new and upgraded Dewalt tools.
So, what new Dewalt cordless power tools do you want to see or think we’ll see this year?
