PORTER CABLE Brushless EDGE

Pushing the EDGE on runtime and performance
 
TOWSON, MD (June 22, 2016) – PORTER CABLE® announces the launch of its 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver (PCCK607LBLW) and 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver (PCCK647LBLW), which are both part of the new Brushless EDGE™ family of tools. The 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver and 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver are extensions to the 20V MAX* Linked System® tools, a range of tradesman cordless core tools at an affordable price.  These two tools operate on any PORTER CABLE 20V MAX* Lithium Ion battery. Integrating brushless motor technology for the first time in its system of tools, these two new PORTER CABLE brushless products offer up to 50% more runtime** to minimize downtime on the jobsite.
 
The 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver (PCCK607LBLW) boasts more runtime as well as 20% more power and improved bit retention compared to the prior model. Its efficient brushless motor, high-speed transmission, and 1.5Ah battery deliver up to 370 Max Watts Out (MWO) to maximize drilling and fastening speeds. A two-speed gear transmission delivers 0-450 Rotations Per Minute (RPM) in low speed for high-torque applications and 0-1,800 RPM in high speed for maximum fastening speed. Since compact size is an important feature for users, the 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver is just 7.4 inches in length and weighs only 3.3 pounds with its battery.
 
Compared to its predecessor, the 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver (PCCK647LBLW) features more runtime and shorter tool length. The brushless motor and transmission generate 1,400 inch-pounds of maximum torque for large fasteners and the variable speed trigger delivers 0-2,700 RPM. The Impact Driver is equipped with a 1/4” quick chuck for fast and easy bit changes. This trim yet powerful tool is just 5.8 inches in length and weighs only 2.9 pounds with its battery. 
 
Both brushless unit kits come with two Lithium Ion, professional-grade batteries and host an onboard state of charge indicator to gauge battery life over the course of a job. Finally, each tool is designed with an over-molded grip for comfort and an LED work light to help illuminate dark work areas. With rubber bumpers on the sides of the tool and a belt hook for storage at arm’s reach, each of these two new members in the Brushless EDGE™ family of tools is a premium choice for the residential professional user.
 
The new 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver (PCCK607LBLW) and 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver (PCCK647LBLW) will be available at Lowe’s and independent retailers in November 2016. Valuably priced at $139 MSRP (kitted with two batteries) each, they will come with a three-year limited, one-year service, and 90-day money-back guarantee.
 
*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
