Tools in Action 3 days ago Tools in Action 3 days ago Mantis 7490 4 Stroke Honda Tiller and Cultivator PlusTools In Action - Power Tools and GearSummer is here which means we can start taking care of our lawns. There is a LOT to be said about these new tools, so we’re going to break it up into shorter more manageable segments. That said, no, 18V and 20V Max tools and batteries are NOT cross-platform compatible as there’s just too much of a difference between battery techs and tool form factors. As we’ve seen with their 12V Max system, Dewalt is strongly focusing on improving the usability and features of their tools. We have seen a similar trend in other industries in recent years, such as with digital cameras and computers. When developing the 20V Max tools, Dewalt’s engineers looked at the current 18V tools and focused on improving their performance and ergonomics while adding innovative features that further contributed to a quicker, easier, and overall better end user experience. In coming days I’ll talk a bit more about some of improvements I saw when demoing many of the new tools. I believe in absolute open disclosure and would never keep such information about the event and my participation a secret. To be quite frank, I really am extremely excited about the new lineup as it borrows heavily from the features I like about the 12V Max lineup. A follow-up post will actually go through a bit more of the details surrounding the product launch media event, similar to this one from last year. One of the things about Dewalt and the people there that I met with and spoke to, is that they’re all for feedback of any kind. In fact, I imagine that if I wrote an extremely negative review, I would almost certainly be invited back to offer additional feedback on pending tools or future iterations still in the development process. There may be some surface similarities between Dewalt and B&D 20V Max designs, but once you take a closer look that all disappears. Looking at the two drills’s geometries, motor specs, chuck specs, clutch and speed settings, trigger shape, angles, and everything in between, the resemblance disappears. I will agree that the battery form factor looks somewhat similar from the outside, but at the same time so do the newest Bosch, Milwaukee, and Makita batteries. Looking at all of the electrical, mechanical, functional, and cosmetic differences, I cannot see how you can assert that the new Dewalt drill is a rebadged B&D.
I was 100% sure that this was a marketing ploy, until I spoke to Dewalt engineers and marketing heads. When I pushed my questions about this, I was told that there is a far larger existing Dewalt userbase in the USA and that when they observed groups’ behavior when comparing tool lines, they saw much confusion. Stanley is about 4 years late on this- will be very interesting to see how they get arround Milwaukee’s patents- Makita paid royally out of court to Milwaukee to get arround their patents- Hitachi and MKE are in court now- how did Stanley get arround them? I also don’t know about any patents on the Li-Ion battery electronics, but I do know that Dewalt spent a lot of time and effort developing smart circuitry. The first two letters are probably for Dewalt Cordless, the third denotes the product category, and the number is used to reflect different models. Details of Dewalt’s new hand tool lineup have been rolling in, so we thought to preview a few of them at once.

The new 24″ tool tote is a 2-in-1 storage solution for power tools, hand tools, accessories, and even loose hardware. It’s hard to tell, but it looks like the power tool case can be completely separated from the tool tote.
The tool tote will be priced at ~$25 and will be available at Home Depot and independent retail channels in June.
Dewalt has also come out with a line of heavy duty adjustable wrenches, available in 6, 8, 10, 12, and 15 inch sizes that range in price from $11 to $35. These adjustable wrenches are designed for heavy jobsite use, and feature a black magnesium phosphate finish.
Although I do like folding utility knives, my favorite knife is still Stanley’s QuickSlide. Ahhh, they can release all the wrenches they want, but I’ll never buy another ridiculous adjustable wrench again.
Plus, it’s far more economical to keep an adjustable wrench in every toolkit than a pliers wrench. In their biggest product launch since first introducing their nascent 12V Max compact cordless tool lineup one year ago, Dewalt has announced details about their new 20V Max cordless power tool system.
In fact, Dewalt reps stressed that with 63 million stem-batteries in the field, they will continue to support the 18V platform for a long, long, loooooong time.
Some of these tools do resemble their 18V brethren, but there are many differences that we’ll go over when discussing the individual tools in more detail later on. While pure specifications and ratings must have still been a concern when developing these new tools, it really looks as though Dewalt’s main driving force was to enhance the overall user experience. For example, Dewalt’s engineers remarked about how proud they were each time they could shave even a millimeter off the length of their impact driver prototypes.
In fact, most companies, Dewalt included, stress that we must inform readers about things like this. For this preview post, I cut out a lot of my subjective opinions in order to keep it more objective and informational. I propose that Dewalt is repackaging this tool in yellow plastic, just as they did in the early 90’s when they turned Black and Decker industrial cordless and renamed it Dewalt.
Since the 20V Max batteries and tools are NOT compatible with current and previous 18V versions, they needed some way to differentiate the two systems.
I’m not inclined to believe that several people could all look at me in the eye and flat out lie, especially when caught off guard.
With a 20 mm self drilling bore the black and Decker stooped after a few rounds on second gear. C2 and L2 refer to whether the kits come with 2 compact 20V batteries or 2 extended-capacity ones. The power tool case has its own handle, so you can carry it closed in one hand, while carrying the open tote in the other. The wrenches’ jaws and adjustment mechanism were designed to provide increased teeth and worm gear engagement for improved strength, and for minimal jaw movement for more precise fastener size adjustments.

The widespread success of Milwaukee’s Fastback Knife has shown that contractors and professionals are willing to spend more for a folding utility knife that breaks away from the mold. The knife also has a quick-change button for easy blade changes, and on-board storage for up to 3 blades. Not only that, we were lucky enough to be a part of the small group with exclusive access and hands-on time with the new tools. And of course, once the tools are released approximately in September, we’ll conduct a few proper hands-on reviews. They’ve never attempted to censor or guide my voice, nor would I tolerate such influence. Most every tool company that I write reviews for are just as interested in the negative feedback as the good, it’s a way for them to focus on improvement. I don’t feel too eager about buying into a new system 3-4 times more expensive just for yellow plastic.
Sure, both will probably get you from point A to point B, but the roads taken and the driving experience along the two paths will vary greatly. Yes, it will feel better, it will have more amp hours, the numbers will be more impressive, but the starting point seems obvious.
On first gear it was able to finnish the hole but with struggle and nothing you want to do to many times.
My question to is what’s the difference, if any, and should I feel swindled as I do that they tricked me into an older model at the same price as a possible newer one. When the blade is retracted, a built-in twine cutter can be used for quick twine or wire cutting. Having the opportunity to chat with and grill the design engineers and product managers greatly adding to the excitement!
This may not seem like a lot, until  of course you need to drive a fastener in a tight cabinet or drawer, and your tool is just a hair too long.
I have repaired a lot of makita tools for my carpenter friends and I started to wonder why my Dewalt tools never broke down. Will it just sit in a workshop where you bring the wood to the table or are you going to be taking the saw to the wood, where ever that might be? So I have also taken apart my Dewalt tools and the answer why they do not break down is to be found under the shell.
Most people get hurt with a table saw because the rip fence wasn’t adjusted right, which can cause kick backs.
Some other manufacturers have chintzy rip fences and it can become a real pain when making a cut.
