New WORX Forcedriver and SD Driver with Screw Holder Redefine Do-it-yourself Project Capabilities
30th November, 2017
Charlotte, N.C. - November 21, 2017 -- With the holiday shopping season looming large, two WORX® tool gifts stand out. The compact, new WORX Forcedriver™ applies serious torque to drive or remove stubborn screws, nuts and bolts, while the WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder ends fastener fumbling.
Sometimes, screws, especially large ones, seize up when driven into hard material, and nuts and bolts become corroded and refuse to budge. These problems can be compounded when fasteners are hard to access. The new WORX Forcedriver™ 8V Impact Driver has all the muscle and special features needed to meet these challenges.
At only 1.3 lbs., Forcedriver delivers 225 In.-lbs. of torque and up to 3,000 impacts per minute (ipm). The compact powerhouse also provides three handle positions (inline, 30 degrees and pistol grip) to drive and remove fasteners in tight spaces and/or at unusual angles. Switching drive positions is as easy as pressing the tool s pivot point button.
Forcedriver is at home in a kitchen drawer, as well as the workshop. It makes short work of installing blinds and drapes, kitchen and bathroom hardware, door sets and hinges, lighting fixtures and many other regularly occurring home projects and repairs. It s also handy for such tasks as assembling knock-down furniture, gas grills and playground equipment.
Forcedriver is equipped with an internal 8-volt MaxLithium battery, which fully charges in 5 hrs and delivers no-load speeds of 0-1,800 rpm. The impact driver has a rocker trigger with forward and reverse positions. An integrated LED light illuminates the work area when the trigger is pressed.
The compact impact driver is constructed of nylon composite with a comfortable overmold grip. Its ¼ in. chuck accepts hex-shanked bits, including Phillips, slotted, square recess, Torx and nutdrivers, which are widely available at home centers and hardware stores. A 2 Phillips bit is included with onboard storage.
Often, the most vexing aspect of a home project is holding screws straight and steady when setting them. This common problem has been eliminated by an ingenious screw-holder attachment on the WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver that consistently sets and levels screws for drilling. The screw holder also grips fasteners in its jaws when they are backed out, preventing them from dropping and being lost.
Another feature that sets the WORX SD Driver apart is its six-slot, revolving cartridge that rotates screw-driving bits in and out, as selected. The user simply slides the magazine (cover) back and then forward to advance a bit into the chamber. The SD Driver holds six, one-inch, hex-shanked bits, which are widely available at home centers and hardware stores. Users can customize the cartridge, whether the project calls for slotted, Phillips, square-recess or a combination of bits.
The SD Driver is powered by a 4-volt, lithium-ion battery and is constructed of nylon composite with a comfortable, rubber handle grip. It also features a two-finger trigger, LED worklight and forward/reverse button. Weighing only one pound, the driver has a ¼-in. chuck, no-load speed of 230 rpm and maximum torque of 27 in.-lbs.
The kit includes the SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder, one bit cartridge, six screw-driving bits (Phillips 1, 2; slotted 4, 6 and square recess 1, 2), and 5-hr. charger.
