This summer, DEWALT introduced its new 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion system of tools, which includes a variety of powerful drivers, drills, hammer drills and saws – even a work light thrown in for good measure. The new line was designed with innovations for high performing, long-lasting and comfortable tools professionals demand.
The 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion tools are ideal for professionals tasked with heavy-duty applications, including remodelers, carpenters, woodworkers, cabinet installers, electricians, mechanical contractors, plumbers and maintenance professionals.
“We are dedicated to continually optimizing our tools so that they meet the needs of professionals in a variety of trades. As part of our 20 Volt MAX* development process, we conducted extensive research and uncovered a need for cordless tools that offer performance in a compact, lightweight profile,” said Scott Moore, Vice President of Marketing, DEWALT.
“We designed the new 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion line to surpass professionals’ expectations and address the need for tools that have the power to withstand rigorous jobsite applications, while also providing comfort and ease of use.”
The new 20 Volt MAX* system features compact and premium tools that offer 1.5 Amp Hour (Ah), and 3.0 Ah Lithium Ion batteries which provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery technology, so that professionals can select the tool and battery power that is more appropriate for the application at hand.
The tools in the 20 Volt MAX* system feature a slim handle design that is more comfortable for extensive use based on significant field testing. In addition, the engineering and design team adjusted the product footprint and weight allocation for ideal balance and a lightweight feel – essential to contractors who are using the tools all day long on the jobsite.
Contractors should also be pleased that the impact drivers feature a ¼-inch hex chuck capable of one-handed bit loading and each tool accepts one-inch bit tips directly into the chuck to minimize front to back length of the tool.
The new impact drivers also include three LED lights positioned in a circle around the chuck, helping to provide visibility and eliminate shadows in dimly lit spaces. The remaining fastening and drilling tools in the line feature an LED light above the trigger to provide visibility.
Plus all premium drill models in the new line feature a three-speed setting, giving professionals the option to select the most appropriate speed for a given task.
DEWALT has also included innovation in the battery chargers themselves, as they feature dual voltage charging capabilities, making them compatible with 12 Volt MAX* and 20 Volt MAX* DEWALT Lithium Ion batteries. Both a heavy duty charger and vehicle charger are available.
To help protect the batteries from overheating, overloading and deep discharge during use, DEWALT -designed electronics are built into the switches of all 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion tools.
The products in the line will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee. For more information please visit www.dewalt.com.
