New Line of DEWALT® Heavy-Duty Adjustable Wrenches Offers Strength and Durability on the Jobsite

TOWSON, Md. (April 19, 2011) – DEWALT announced today the introduction of its new line of Heavy-Duty Adjustable Wrenches, which are stronger than the leading competitor in the market. Available in five sizes – 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch and 15 inch – these wrenches can tackle nearly any professional wood framing, decking and plumbing applications on the jobsite.

“Professionals turn to DEWALT power tools and accessories because they know our products won’t let them down. As a result, contractors experience absolute confidence, knowing DEWALT has their back,” said Chris Alagno, global product manager – wrenches, pliers, snips. “Our new hand tools, including these adjustable wrenches, are professional workhorse solutions that measure up to tough standards and deliver durability, strength and quality performance.”

The heavy-duty adjustable wrenches feature a black DEWALT Tough Coat magnesium phosphate finish that helps to prevent the wrenches from chipping and provides a no-slip surface when in use. The neck design increases the strength of the chrome vanadium steel-constructed wrench, and a wide, solid steel handle offers comfort and strength.

For optimal performance, the new wrenches boast improved strength* during high torque applications due to increased engagement on teeth and worm gear.* Additionally, as a result of extensive jobsite testing, the wrenches are engineered to minimize jaw movement* between moveable and fixed jaws for precise adjustments.

Complete with a limited lifetime warranty, the adjustable wrenches will be available at The Home Depot as well as independent distributors beginning in June 2011. The DEWALT Heavy-Duty Adjustable Wrenches are expected to retail for the following prices:

* DWHT70289 6 inch: $10.99
* DWHT70290 8 inch: $12.99
* DWHT70291 10 inch: $14.99
* DWHT70292 12 inch: $18.99
* DWHT70293 15 inch: $34.99
* DWHT70294 6 inch and 10 inch combo pack: $19.99
