Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Manufacturer: DeWalt

DeWalt makes a lot of excellent tools, but our DeWalt tool reviews separate the real winners from the run-of-the-mill. From the new DeWalt FlexVolt concrete saw to the excellent DeWalt DWV012 HEPA dust extractor, there’s a lot to like. Our hands-on approach combines in-house scientific testing with real-world usage to determine if tools like the DeWalt Tool Connect hammer drill are anything special. Dewalt Tool Connect is the latest technology from this tool company, but not all DeWalt tools feature it. Their FlexVolt battery technology is second to none with hybrid 20V and 60V applications. DeWalt FlexVolt tools also run longer, faster, and with more power than their 18V tools. DeWalt Tool Reviews with Hands-on Testing The following DeWalt tool reviews endure a combination of trade-specific testing with rugged testing in the PTR Shop. You’ll see that we cover the gamut, from DeWalt hand tools to power tools and outdoor power equipment. For great deals on DeWalt tools check out this page.
