DeWalt is one of the prominent manufacturers of electric and cordless power tools such as drills, sanders and screwdrivers. However, the company also manufactures radios. The DeWalt DW911 is a cordless job site radio. It is made of sturdy, rugged plastic and features only a radio, with no CD or tape player. If electronic components ever need to be replaced, the outer case has to be taken apart in order to get to them.
