For almost 80 years, DEWALT has earned a reputation for designing, engineering and building tough industrial machinery. In 1923, Raymond DEWALT invented the radial arm saw that for decades continued to set the standard for quality and durability. It was the start of long-lasting reputation among professional craftsmen: tough, powerful, precise, rugged and reliable. These became the trademarks of the DEWALT name. The yellow/black color scheme is a trademark for DEWALT Power Tools and Accessories.
