DeWalt launches TOUGHSERIES premium hand tools line

DeWalt has announced the launch of its TOUGHSERIES, a new line of premium hand tools designed for heavy-duty use. The TOUGHSERIES portfolio is scheduled to launch this summer with tapes, followed by hammers and screwdrivers later in the year.

TOUGHSERIES tapes are designed to withstand a 100 ft. drop, TOUGHSERIES hammers are 5X more durable than previous models, and TOUGHSERIES screwdrivers tout 10X more corrosion resistance than previous models.

As well as being able to survive a 100ft drop, the TOUGHSERIES tape measure features a durable coating that protects the entire length of the blade, and a 6 in. Rip-Shield™ blade coating for improved hook connection and long life. Each TOUGHSERIES tape includes a removable magnet utilising patented hook connection technology as well as a contoured case design for improved grip and control. The tape measures are available in 16 ft. (DWHT36916S), 25 ft. (DWHT36925S), and 35 ft. lengths (DWHT36935S).

DeWalt has also announced new sustainable TOUGHSERIES tape packaging. Designed to reduce the amount of plastic packaging introduced to the waste stream, the company is implementing an eco-friendly clip-card estimated to eliminate 10,000 lbs. of PVC per year, or the equivalent of more than 400,000 0.5L water bottles.

Also included in the TOUGHSERIES line are the redesigned 14 oz. (DWHT51138X) and 12 oz. (DWHT51135X) Mig Welded Hammers, and a 22 oz. Demolition Hammer (DWHT51008). Each hammer is coated with an anti-slip, tear resistant grip as well as a magnetic nail starter for one-handed nail placement.

The TOUGHSERIES 22oz Demo Hammer is the all-in-one tool designed for tough residential and commercial demolition jobs. The hammer boasts a long handle for extended reach, an oversized strike face for breaking through drywall, and an elongated claw curve for easy prying of nails and board grabbing utility. In addition, Tri-Pull technology provides versatility to remove finish nails, framing nails, and staples.

Lastly, launching in the TOUGHSERIES line are a complete range of screwdrivers. The 2-Piece Demo Screwdriver Set also features a solid steel core and strike cap.
