A Day at Black & Decker University: DeWALT 12V MAX Cordless Platform

We just returned from Black & Decker University in Towson, MD where we were invited to attend the official launch of the DeWALT 12V* MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless power tool system.
There were presentations from the design build team and representatives from engineering, industrial design and marketing all on hand to share with us the process of bringing a new product to market which essentially creates a new category of 12V compact contractor-grade power tools.
A tradesman was on hand to share his testimonials and we also had an opportunity to test all 7 new tools against current offerings in the market from such brands as Makita, Milwaukee, Bosch and RIDGID.

Read our tool blog next week to check out our reviews of this new lineup which we feel is an evolution in power tools.
We also want to thank DeWALT for inviting us to the launch and picking up the transportation, accommodations and food.
