SCREWFIX BOOSTS ERBAUER POWER TOOLS RANGE – Wider choice and greater value for tradespeople

By January 15, 2019News, Screwfix News

Screwfix is offering tradespeople and serious DIYers greater choice and value with significant additions to its range of Erbauer power tools. This very popular and trusted range has undergone an upgrade, focussing on new battery technology with improved ergonomic design, all at very competitive prices.

Screwfix has introduced 68 new Erbauer power tools, supported by the innovative 18V Keep Cool Erbauer EXT battery technology.  The 18V EXT battery platform gives tradespeople the freedom to share batteries and chargers across 14 different power tools and also boosts run time by 25% compared to non-EXT batteries. Erbauer power tools also benefit from brushless motor technology, which delivers longer motor life, more power and up to 200% higher torque.

Erbauer’s Keep Cool Technology has also been engineered to reduce friction and heat build-up. The new technology ensures tradespeople can work for longer, without the need to stop to charge or carry additional, costly batteries.

Key power tools in the enhanced range include the improved 18V Brushless Combi Drill, which benefits from Keep Cool Technology, 19 torque settings, a maximum torque of 50Nm and 50 minute charge time.  All for the great value price of just £99.99.

The 18V Brushless Twin Pack (Combi and Impact Driver) is also now available from Screwfix. Featuring both an 18V Combi Drill and Impact Driver, along with two 18V 2Ah Li-Ion batteries and a one hour charger, this package is only £149.99.

Other key new additions include the 210mm and 255mm Double-Bevel Sliding Mitre Saws.  Priced at £129.99 for the 210mm version and £179.99 for the 255mm saw.

Rhian Bartlett, Trading Director at Screwfix, commented: “The 68 new power tools in the new Erbauer range demonstrate our focus on offering value and a wide choice of high performing and adaptable power tools for tradespeople and serious DIYers.  This new range is designed to offer reassurance and improved flexibility with the innovative battery platform, all with a two-year manufacturer’s guarantee. Erbauer power tools make a great addition to any tool box.”

The Erbauer range of power tools is trusted by many tradespeople and more than 50 per cent of the products already available are Trade Rated, an independent accolade showing they are highly rated by other trade customers.

Tradespeople can get hold of Erbauer power tools online at www.screwfix.com, from one of over 600 Screwfix stores nationwide or via its 24/7 contact centre on 03330 112 112.  Screwfix’s Click & Collect service allows customers to order over the phone or online and pick-up their goods from a store in as little as one minute.
