If you’re a fan of the DeWALT brand of power tools, we’ve got big news for you. DeWALT hand tools are now available and they haven’t just released a tape measure and wrench but they’ve identified more than 100 types of hand tools and dived into the R&D and come up with some welcome additions to the hand tool market.
The line includes utility knives, pliers, wrenches, tape measures, hammers, saws, toolboxes and more. These are professional grade hand tools that are meant to perform under the demands of the jobsite.
Among the more than 100 products offered in the line, five of the most innovative tools include a 15 Ounce Framing Hammer (DWHT51138), a 1.25 inch, 25 Foot Short Tape (DWHT33385), a Power Tool Case with Tote (DWST24070), a Folding Retractable Utility Knife (DWHT10035) and multiple Heavy-Duty Adjustable Wrenches.
The framing hammer is the world’s first 15 ounce all-steel MIG Weld framing hammer. It touts a surprisingly lightweight design, but it can deliver the power to handle almost any professional wood framing applications. This hammer provides contractors with the strength and durability they need to maximize their level of productivity, and it helps to minimize arm fatigue.
The 25 foot short tape helps deliver durability for contractors. A patented technology, using a specially designed 3M Thermoplastic film adhered to the first six inches of the blade, extends the lifespan of the product compared to competitive units without the technology. The new tape was also designed with a durable casing and rubber slide lock that can withstand the daily rigors of jobsite abuse. Additionally, this tape offers 13 feet of standout* and includes an end hook that is larger than traditional end hooks.
The power tool case with tote is a two-in-one tool box that provides contractors with a portable storage option for tools and small accessories. This storage solution allows for power tools, hand tools and small parts such as drill bits and nails to be organized in the power tool case. For internal storage customization, the tool case has a removable divider that stores larger items in the bottom of the tote, helping to eliminate the need for multiple tool bags.
The utility knife is one of the first hybrid folding retractable utility knives of its kind, combining the convenience and space savings of a folding knife with the cutting performance of a traditional utility knife to create an all-in-one solution integral to any contractor.
Available in five sizes – 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch and 15 inch – the heavy-duty adjustable wrenches offer contractors a solution that can tackle nearly any professional wood framing, decking and plumbing applications.
The adjustable wrenches are stronger than the leading competitor on the market and offer durability that contractors can count on to move from one task to another quickly and efficiently.
The new line of DEWALT hand tools will be available at The Home Depot as well as independent distributors beginning in June 2011. The five featured products listed above are expected to retail as follows: Folding Retractable Utility Knife ($9.99), 25 Foot Short Tape ($24.99), Power Tool Case with Tote ($25.00), 15 Ounce Framing Hammer ($59.99), and Heavy-Duty Adjustable Wrenches ($10.99 – $34.99).
