The History of DeWalt

It all started with one man and one man only, Raymond DeWalt, Raymond started learning how to make wagon wheels with his father, in Pennsylvania. He realized there was a way to work smarter and safer. In the early 1920s, when silent movies were still popular and electricity wasn't common in households, he came up with the Wonder worker, a versatile radial arm electric saw that he patented. Raymond explained that the need to cut costs and increase productivity pushed him to create this invention.

The tool revolutionizes productivity and profitability at the jobsite by being able to carry out 29 different cutting operations without the need for significant setup changes, saving the user from old-school, backbreaking labour.
