Dewalt Portable Power Station Review

What does portable power mean to you?  For some people, it doesn’t mean much because they are never in a situation where power is hard to come by.  For the rest of us, it means freedom.  Freedom to run tools wherever you want and whenever you want.  The one problem with portable power is most of the time you need a gas engine to produce the power.  Having a gas engine means it can be noisy and is required to sit outside in the fresh air.  I am not saying generators or inverters are bad because they aren’t.  They...

Dewalt announced they are coming out with the world’s first.  What could it be?  Well I am not sure what it is, but I bet it’s pretty cool.  I have to admit, I have a ton of things it could be, but looking at their World’s First Page, I am guessing it is something with grinding or cutting.  Check out their video and you will see why I am thinking it might be some cutting tool.  However they could be very sneaky and trying to lead me down the wrong path.  Leave a comment below and let us know...
