The DeWalt power tool company was founded in 1920 by Raymond E. Dewalt who invented the world’s first radial arm saw. The company grew very quickly from it’s inception, and mainly specialised in stationary woodworking tools.
The company was acquired by American Machine & Foundry Co., Inc. in 1947 and then onsold to Black and Decker in 1960.
As of 1992, DeWalt became Black and Decker’s high-end power tool brand, specifically marketed to those who demand only the best from their equipment.
DeWalt is currently one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional power tools and arguably the most popular power tool brand in the USA. They produce more than 200 different power tools and 800 accessories, with only a relatively small selection of these products available in Australia.
Each DeWalt power tool is designed for trade use.
They offer a 3 year limited warranty on all their power tools, a 1 year free service contract, and a 30 day no risk satisfaction guarantee.
This means that every DeWalt power tool is repaired free of charge within 3 years of the date of purchase.
The 1 year free service contract allows you to walk into any DeWalt repair shop and get your tool serviced for free.
The 30 day no risk customer satisfaction guarantee means if you are not completely satisfied with your DeWalt power tool, even after using it, you can take it back to the store you purchased it from and you will be guaranteed a refund or exchange. Proof of purchase is required for this, and for all of the above warranty services.
