Wiha presents the new compact PocketMax® 03 May 2022

Hand tool manufacturer Wiha is now expanding its product range with the new PocketMax® screwdrivers with bit depot in the electric and magnetic versions.

Multitool fastening tools are very popular among professionals, especially for mobile assignments as they allow them to carry only one tool instead of several individual screwdrivers. With their compact small size and light weight, Wiha says its new tool can be flexibly used for many fastening and application situations.

Safely tucked away in the screwdriver handle, the bit depot includes either eight popular standard bits in the magnetic version or four slimBits in the insulated electric version for professional electricians. Wiha states with the magnetic opening and shut function, the bit depot can very easily be opened, clearly presenting the bits for withdrawal. During closing, the bit depot easily glides back into the shaft and closes again by itself. The twistable cap allows convenient handling during the tightening process. 

The insulated electric variation guarantees maximum safety, as the included slimBits are certified according to the international standard IEC 60900, individually tested at 10,000V AC and approved up to 1,000V AC. The slender, 75mm slimBits ensure perfect access to low lying screws or spring clips thanks to protective insulation fully integrated into bits in the front section.
