A new and compact, versatile electric screwdriver, part number 7985, has been introduced to the market by UK hand tool company Laser Tools. The company believes the new tool will change perceptions about electric screwdrivers, with the new product designed to meet the diverse needs of both professionals and DIY enthusiasts.
Laser Tools’ new screwdriver has a compact and comfortable design, which features a rubber coated handle for enhanced grip and control. It uses a quick-chuck system and is supplied with a quick-chuck bit holder together with eight 25mm long ¼ inch drive bits. Included within these are PzDrive Pz0, Pz1, Pz2, and Pz3; flat 7mm; and TORX® T15, T20 and T25 – offering the versatility needed to tackle various screwing tasks.
Powered by a rechargeable li-ion, 3.6V 900mAh battery, the company claims the screwdriver offers “much more than just cordless convenience”; the battery can be easily recharged through a USB socket on a PC, or USB adaptor, with a charging time of just 60 minutes. Once fully charged, the screwdriver provides an operating time of approximately 40 minutes. A red light indicates charging, while a green light signifies a full charge and a USB charging cable is included in the pack.
The initial torque when using electric power is set to 3Nm to prevent over-tightening of screw fixings. However, if ‘really tight’ is required, or for unscrewing, up to 15Nm of torque can be manually applied, offering even more versatility for a range of applications.
To illuminate a work area, the screwdriver is equipped with an LED torch that automatically turns on when in use. This feature ensures visibility in dark and hard-to-reach areas.
The new Laser Tools electric screwdriver is available now from stockists.
