Dremel is the standard when it comes to rotary tools. DIYers use them for everything from dropping a dog’s nails to cutting steel. If you fall into that category, the company’s latest release, the 8260, is interesting for a few reasons.

For starters, this is Dremel’s first brushless rotary tool. Thanks to the more modern motor design, Dremel claims that the 8260 delivers 20 percent more power than the 4300, the most powerful corded model. In addition, it has double the battery life of the 8220, the previous wireless flagship model. It’s also 20 percent faster than the 8220.

It is also Dremel’s first smart tool. The addition of Bluetooth connectivity allows you to connect the 8260 to your phone via Dremel’s mobile app. One of the more useful features here is an interactive guide that tells you which accessory and speed to use to cut through specific materials. It also sends you battery alerts and alerts if the tool is about to jam or overheat. An LED light on the 8260 also alerts you if you’re about to run into those issues.

The 8260 is available today through the Home Depot for $169. The kit comes with three wheels for cutting metal and one designed for plastic, a battery, charger and carrying case.
