DEWALT Launches New 1/2" Pistol Grip Drill with E-Clutch Anti-Lock Controlâ„¢ And Patented DEWALT-Built, High Performance 10.5 Amp Motor

TOWSON, Md. (July 28, 2010) – D EWALT announces the launch of its new ½†Pistol Grip Drill (DWD220) that features E-Clutch Anti-Lock Control™ to offer professional contractors increased control in a stall or lock-up situation, when compared to drills without a control feature. Built with a 10.5 Amp patented, D EWALT built, high performance motor, the new ½†drill provides electricians, plumbers, mechanical contractors, HVAC professionals, metal fabricators, carpenters and general contractors with the control and power to complete heavy-duty jobsite applications.

“We know that professional contractors often experience a stall or lock-up situation when drilling into steel or using larger bits in wood,†said Mike McDowell, group product manager, D EWALT. “To address this problem, our new ½†pistol grip drill incorporates E-Clutch Anti-Lock Controlâ„¢, which provides the increased control contractors require in a stall or lock-up situation.â€

E-Clutch Anti-Lock Controlâ„¢ is engaged when the drill senses a stall or lock-up situation, cycling the motor on-and-off at a rapid rate, breaking the bit free from the material providing increased control to the user. If the drill is unable to quickly break free of the material it automatically shuts down. The user can then release and re-engage the trigger to return to normal operation.

In addition to this control feature, the DWD220 is equipped with a patented, D EWALT-built, high performance 10.5 Amp motor that has approximately 40 percent more copper than previous models. By putting more copper in the motor windings and armature the motor delivers users up to 50 percent more power, increased overload protection, and 0 - 1,200 RPM for superior drilling performance in a similar size.

The drill will be available in August at construction supply and industrial distributors. The DWD220 is expected to retail for approximately $159.00. The product will come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
