DEWALT Debuts New Line of Air Tools for Professionals & DIY Mechanics

Mississauga, Ontario – October 27, 2014 – DEWALT® announces the introduction of a new line of air tools for professionals in automotive markets. The new air tools feature the durability and innovation expected of DEWALT products and are engineered to meet high-end professional performance standards demanded by hardworking industrial tradesmen.
 
The new DEWALT Air Tools line includes a 1/2” Drive Heavy Duty Impact Wrench, 3/8” Drive Air Ratchet, 3/8” Reversible Drill, Angle Die Grinder, and Palm Sander. 
 
“The tools are designed with unique features for easy operation and control, to deliver premium performance,” said Scott Moore, Director of Hand Tools/Storage, Canada. “Features include the things that the automotive and industrial tradesmen are looking for in air tools such as shock-resistant housings, aluminum body designs, one-handed directional switches, high RPMs for heavy-duty fastening, and more.” 
 
These DEWALT® GUARANTEED TOUGH® air tools meet strict ISO standards. The twin-hammer mechanism on the Impact Wrench and Air Ratchet provides quality performance, while the high end materials and demanding manufacturing processes result in durable tools that can take a beating. Shock resistant bumpers on the Impact wrench and reversible drill help to protect against housing cracking. High-impact composite body designs reduce weight and provide a superior power-to-weight ratio, which reduces fatigue and provides insulation from cold air passing through the handle.
 
Other unique feature includes an easily accessible one-touch forward/reverse switch for quick directional changeover. Ergonomic handle designs offer comfort and tool control. Molded grips help to reduce slippage and provide grip.
