Harbor Freight has added a new 4.0Ah battery to their Hercules 12V cordless power tool lineup.
This is not major news, but it’s still an interesting development.
Harbor Freight’s Hercules 12V cordless power tool system is still quite small, with respect to the number of tool and compared to industry leaders such as Dewalt and Milwaukee.
A new Hercules 12V one-handed reciprocating saw launched earlier this year.
Here’s a list of all Hercules 12V tools, batteries, and chargers, as of March 2022:
- 3/8″ drill/driver
- 1/4″ hex cordless screwdriver
- 1/4″ hex Impact driver
- 1/4″ impact wrench
- 3/8″ impact wrench
- Variable speed polisher/sander
- 1/4″ ratchet
- 1/4″ extended reach ratchet
- 3/8″ ratchet
- 3/8″ extended reach ratchet
- 2.0Ah battery
- 4.0Ah battery (NEW)
- USB power source
- 20/12V fast charger
- 20/12V dual port fast charger
Harbor Freight has not yet introduced heavier duty 12V cordless power tools, such as a circular saw, but I’m sure heavier users will appreciate the longer runtime that a 4.0Ah battery pack can provide.
The price seems quite appealing, at just $35.
Hercules cordless power tools are sold exclusively at Harbor Freight. Hercules is a Harbor Freight brand.
