YEOVIL, England, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Tough on the outside and intelligent on the inside, the eagerly awaited DeWalt 14.4V XR range, with its unique 1.5Ah lithium ion batteries, has landed exclusively on the shelves of specialist trade only supplier Screwfix.
Available, over the phone, online and in Screwfix's 168 trade counters across the UK for next day delivery or collection, the new XR range features the latest technology from DeWalt, bringing smart innovation to Screwfix's already extensive power tool selection.
The new range boasts extreme run time, increased efficiency and improved performance. By constantly monitoring tool and battery operation the intelligent electronic module and switch maximises performance and prevents damage caused by overload or temperature build up, therefore increasing the lifetime of the battery and the tool.
The exclusive 14.4V range at Screwfix includes a drill driver and compact hammer drill, both featuring a two speed transmission for longer runtime and tool life. For a speedy one-handed bit change, both tools have 13mm keyless chucks with an automatic spindle lock, and for optimised precision, the 14 position adjustable torque provides just that.
Also featured in the range is a compact impact driver which is currently the most compact on the market. With an improved ergonomic design which assists driving, and a drop-in keyless hex driver, it is perfect for quick one-handed bit changes and is also available in a twin pack with the hammer drill.
The whole range comes with 2 x 1.5Ah top quality Li-Ion batteries with an easy slide function for fast battery changes, and each XR tool has a time delayed LED light for added visibility in areas which lack light. The battery charger included with the products will support all Li-Ion batteries, no matter what voltage, and to cover all bases, DeWalt's XR range comes with a three year warranty.
