- they've launched a new leg stand, the DE7033, which DeWalt are claiming significant improvements over the previous DE7023 leg stand
- new features include a paddle lock, quick release detent paddle levers, all in a new compact, shorter design (1.12m – 2.6m fully extended), while holding onto some of the convenient features from the previous model, such as its attachment system.
- the main selling feature seems to be the fact that the DE7033 benefits from an almost telescopic ability to package down to 1.12m overall length. This means you can easily stow it in the boot of your car. Plus, it comes with a carry handle.
- DeWalt have also launched a new mitre saw workstation, the DE7035. The top beam is compatible with DeWalt's DE7023 mitre saw clamps, and will support up to 1200kg in weight. The legs benefit from quick release locks. Again, it looks like it's going to be a very portable, and stowable, piece of kit.
