    Was thinking of getting a new set of drills am ready to buy the Hercules hammer drill/driver and impact driver along with the batteries, chargers and all the fixings, and also possibly the circular saw too, all 20V. But I read that they are coming out with a whole new line of brushless motor designs, it was some random guy in a tool forum I can't recall, I tried to find more information but found little.
    If this is true I may wait for them, but I don't want to wait too long. Could wait a few months I suppose, and if they are a lot more expensive I may just go with the drills out now. Perhaps this is just some made up myth, if true it would be cool.
    Has anyone heard about this? Anyone have any information like release dates or potential retail prices?

    Thank you.

    Update: I found the tool forum where I saw this, Tool Craze. It's a post from October of 2019 filled with disclaimers that it cannot guarantee accuracy, and it said they may hit the market in early 2020. So this is most likely not true.
    The current models are great, just didn't want to buy them if a new model was coming out next month. Looks like I am going to get new drills soon!
