6 August 2010

The 8200 is compatible with all Dremel accessories and attachments, making it a highly versatile tool offering the power and freedom to tackle any detailed indoor or outdoor project. It can be used to grind, polish, carve, cut, sharpen and sand a wide variety of materials.
The Dremel 8200boasts advanced motor technology and powerful 10.8V Lithium-ion battery – setting a new standard in cordless multi-tools. The Li-ion battery is 25% smaller and 15% lighter than on previous models and has Electronic Cell Protection for maximum performance and lifespan. It charges in just one hour and holds its charge for up to two years. The Dremel 8200 also comes with a major safety feature: a motor brake which ensures the accessory stops spinning the second the tool is switched off.
The company that it is responding to consumer demand as the Dremel 8200 includes a trumpet nosepiece for better pencil grip, easy to use controls that do not interfere with the grip, a narrow barrel design and enhanced comfort during extended use. It also comes with a separate On/Off switch, collet lock-out function, soft grip and 360º grip zone. An LED gauge shows the battery status and the slide switch allows full variable speed control between 5,000 and 30,000
There will be two different kits: The Dremel 8200-1/35 contains the new tool, a one-hour charger, a Detailer’s Grip attachment and 35 high quality accessories (including the
fast-change SpeedClic). The Dremel 8200-2/45 comes with 45 accessories plus a Line & Circle cutter attachment and a Shaping Platform attachment.
"In 2003 we were the first company to launch a Lithium-ion power tool, enabling a cordless tool to perform like a corded one for the first time," says Dremel Brand Manager Nick Longford. "The new 8200 takes that technology one stage further and cuts up to two times faster".
