Porter Cable just announced a new lineup of compact 12V Max lithium ion cordless power tools. Hot on the heels of Dewalt’s own unveilings, the new line of tools are intended to offer durability and great performance in compact and lightweight packages. The tools are designed for contractors, trade professionals, woodworkers, and hobbyists.
There will be three new tools included in the initial launch, a 3/8″ drill/driver, 1/4″ hex impact driver, and a neat looking ClampSaw meant for medium duty sawing. A fourth tool kit will include the 3/8″ drill/driver and impact driver. The tools seem to offer decent specs while being pretty affordably priced.
We’ll take a closer look at the three new 12V tools in days to come. The tools will hit stores in October 2010, right in time for the holiday shopping season.
