Product Report Mechanic Tool Set
I don’t know about you but I really hate it when I pick up my tool set, open it and find that I have it “This Side Up,” down and all the sockets, extensions, ratchets come spilling out rolling across the floor or in the dirt.
Well, DEWALT recently introduced a new Mechanic Tool Sets and Mechanic Accessory Tool Sets for professionals.
DEWALT has re-designed the contents of these sets, from ratchets, to sockets, to extenders, and more, for high performance and convenience. And when you open a case the stuff is where it’s supposed to be.
Guaranteed Tough®, the new DEWALT® Mechanics Tool Sets offer a full lifetime warranty including hassle free replacement with next day delivery.
“We are so confident in the performance of each piece of the new Mechanics Tool Sets that we are offering a 24-hour replacement program,” said Rob Ronan, Senior Product Manager. “Where competing set manufacturers promise replacement with proof of purchase at a store, requiring traveling to and from a retail outlet, DEWALT will ship replacement parts direct without proof of purchase for next day delivery if customers call 800-4-DEWALT or go online to the DEWALT customer service website before 3 p.m.”
The new Mechanics Tool Set includes a 168 piece set – model DWMT73803, 142 piece set – model DWMT73802 and 108 piece set – model DWMT73801. The new sets come in durable blow molded, high-quality plastic cases with metal latches that can take a beating while providing protection and organized storage.
The new 72-Tooth Ratchet is ideal for high torque ratcheting and offers 3X longer life cycle versus standard ratchets on average. The 72 teeth allow for slight tightening or loosening in cramped spaces where it is difficult to back up the ratchet. The Ratchet’s 5 degree arc swing and slim head design offer maneuverability in constricted areas
Offering one-hand operation, the new Ratchet features a contoured, ergonomically designed handle with anti-slip grooves for comfort and control. It is made from premium chrome vanadium steel for strength and durability.
The Ratchet easily connects and disconnects to an extensive range of sockets. Sockets and other pieces in the sets feature knurled rings that help reduce slippage for hand tightening applications. Sockets also features laser etched markings for quick and easy identification.
The 168 piece and 142 piece Mechanic Tool Sets also include new Combination Wrenches with a long-panel forged design for longer reach and leverage. A new Anti-Slip design delivers 400 percent more gripping power by locking the wrench onto the nuts and bolts to help prevent slippage and provide extra torque. The Anti-Slip Design features raised ridges and indented grooves in the mouth of the wrench to provide added grip for grasping nuts and bolts. The Combination Wrenches also features a 15 degree box end offset for knuckle clearance.
A high-end vinyl Grip Bit Driver is included in the sets. This durable driver is designed to reduce slipping and provides maximum comfort.
Unique to mechanic sets are the DEWALT® Removable Accessory Cases of MAXFIT™ screwdriving tips, sleeves, and extenders. The cases can be removed from the set and brought to the specific application. DEWALT’s MAXFIT™ Screwdriving Bits are made of shock-resistant steel, and feature a precision-milled top for ideal fit in screw heads. Designed for use with the Magnetic Screw Lock™ System, the MAXFIT™ bits allow for a fastener retention solution with every size and type of bit.
Individual pieces of the new DEWALT® Mechanic Tool Sets are also sold separately, totaling more than 450 skus to meet a range of demanding tasks required by mechanics and construction trades.
Stackable Sets With Job-Specific Tools
DEWALT® introduced new Mechanics Accessory Tool Sets in new durable cases. These sets slide into the individual trays that clip together as part of the new DEWALT® Tough Lock Stacking System for secure transport and quick grab and go convenience of hand tools and accessories.
Build your own tool platform for the task at hand with DEWALT’s new Guaranteed Tough® line of Mechanics Tools, including newly designed sockets, ratchets, drivers, wrenches, and more with new and innovative features that give mechanics the edge in on-the-job performance.
For many jobs you don’t need to bring along an entire set of mechanics tools. With the Stackable Sets program you can build your own tool platform, ideal for your specific job, and bring along only the tools you need – in a convenient durable carrying case or set of cases locked together.
The Stackable cases feature durable shatter-resistant transparent lids so it is easy to see inside the case. The cases also feature an injection molded tray which can be removed and stored in DEWALT® roller boxes or DEWALT® Metal Storage chests.
