Hercules 20V Will Release More Cordless Tools Soon

When I first learned about the new Hercules 20V cordless power tools from Harbor Freight, I was impressed that they made tools that seemed on par with todays pro brands but at the same time I was unimpressed that they only have 3 tools available for purchase. Joshua B. found a flyer that shows that new more Hercules 20V tools are coming!

A total of 8 new Hercules 20V tools are coming out soon which include a 6-1/2″ circular saw, reciprocating saw, angle grinder, multitool, radio, area light, jobsite blower, and a jigsaw.

The flyer doesn’t list specs so well have to wait for more info. My guess is that all will most likely be brushed motor tools (except for the light and radio as those don’t use motors) because all the new Harbor Freight 20V tools (including Earthquake XT and Bauer brands) are brushed motor tools. One thing I find a bit weird and might be a picture mistake, is that the multitool has a side handle. They probably meant to put that side handle on the angle grinder picture.

With the new added line up of tools makes the Hercules brand more appealing and gives users a definite upgrade path to build their collection. What I still don’t get is why they came out with 3 separate 20V lines (Hercules, Bauer, and Earthquake XT) when they could have made one cordless line. That and why didn’t they make them all compatible with each other?

What’s taking so damn long?.. I need a circular saw and a jigsaw and want to add them to my Hercules collection.

Daniel H.

The Circular Saw is out!! $89.99 but there is a coupon for $74.99. I think the battery and charger are sold separately though.

I have several Hercules tools. I would like to purchase a 20v cordless chainsaw but they don’t offer this item. I several 20v batteries and chargers for Hercules so I don’t really want to buy another brand to keep up with.

Well there you go, the rest of us bought into brands with a wider variety of tools for this reason, in addition to the HF QC issues and short warranty.

However, I’d as soon get a gas chainsaw because that type of tool is very taxing of its *engine*. If you only have light/small cutting to do, then a recip saw can handle that. I’m not arguing that cordless chainsaws shouldn’t exist, just that if you want something decent you should be prepared to pay for a contractor grade brand rather than HF brand.
