DeWalt expands into sledge hammers and axes; Worx said its latest circular saw simplifies accurate rip cutting; the PowerPivot bolt cutters boast a double compound action system; and the Wiha e-screwdriver handles time-consuming screw-fastening.
Axes and hammers from DeWalt

DeWalt has a new line of seven ExoCore sledge hammers and three ExoCore axes, marking the company's first foray into this category.

The sledge hammer range is designed to meet a variety of applications, from metal to drywall to driving a punch or chisel. The hammers are available in 6lbs (2.7kgs), 8lbs (3.6kgs), and 12lbs (5.4kgs) models with a 32" handle, and a 4lbs (1.8kgs) model with a 12" handle. A Blacksmith sledge hammer with a triangular head is also available. Each hammer features an efficient strike face and a carbon fibre composite overlay to mitigate damage to the tool.

The ExoCore Axe range includes a camper's hatchet with a 12" handle, a 3.5 single bit splitter with a 32" handle, and a log splitter with a 32" axes. All of the axes feature a scalloped cutting edge, designed to ensure a deep cut and improved separation.
Simple, accurate circular saw

The Worx 20V 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw with ExacTrack can take the guess work out of straight line cutting by incorporating a tracking guide that enables accurate rip cuts.

Weighing 6lbs (2.7kgs), the new Worx circular saw is compact and lightweight. It is powered by a 20V 2.0 Ah Power Share Max lithium battery and 3600 rpm (no-load) motor.

It features a rubber overmould comfort grip and a spindle lock for fast and convenient blade changes. As part of the Worx Power Share program, the 20V 2.0 Ah battery is compatible with more than two dozen Worx DIY and lawn and garden tools.

In addition to the saw, the kit includes a 20V 2.0 Ah battery, a 3-5 hour charger and a 24-tooth, carbide-tipped saw blade.
More cutting power, less effort

Crescent (H.K. Porter) has introduced its new line of PowerPivot bolt cutters. Featuring a compound action design, they can provide more cutting power, but require 30% less force to cut than traditionally designed bolt cutters.

Blades are precisely ground then induction hardened for extended edge life and added ability to cut hard materials. Handles are made of tubular steel for extra strength and have durable rubber grips for added comfort and control.

PowerPivot Bolt Cutters are available in five sizes with handle lengths of 14, 18, 24, 30, and 36 inches. All have been designed for high performance cutting capacity, both in diameter and hardness of materials.
E-screwdriver promises fast work

A new motor assisted screwdriver called the speedE from Wiha promises to halve the time users take to complete their work.

An electric motor assists with fastening screws up to 0.4 Nm before disengaging to ensure that material is protected. The screw can then be fixed by hand with a deft touch, similar to a conventional screwdriver. An electric ratchet function assists users as they complete fastening.

Thanks to its electric drive, the Wiha e-screwdriver handles screw-fastening at a rapid rate. This power transmission and torque control in electric mode brings a particular benefit to users for delicate screw-fastenings. An integrated LED light also ensures users are not left in the dark as they fasten screws.

When fully charged, speedE can fasten electrically up to 800 times without re-charging the batteries.
