-- Power Tools with Nano(TM) Technology Available in 36V, 28V and 18V - Satisfying Wide Range of User Needs --

February 2007 - DeWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, announced today the launch of Nano(TM) Technology, a proprietary technology that drives the latest line of DeWALT cordless tools. DeWALT will offer three cordless platforms with Nano(TM) Technology, 36V, 28V and 18V. By offering these voltages with Nano(TM) Technology, DeWALT is able to provide its users with an extensive range of power tools that satisfy a wide scope of user demands on the jobsite. Nano(TM) Technology provides users with an optimized power-to-weight ratio, maximum battery durability and cycle life, as well as productivity enhancing features. These benefits encompass the DeWALT commitment to providing professional end users with tools that deliver the performance they need in an ideal ergonomic package.

This technology is currently part of the DeWALT 36V line of power tools and will also be available in the 28V platform, which will be officially unveiled to the general public at the 2007 International Builder's Show (IBS) in Orlando, FL. At that time, attendees will have the opportunity to see the tools for the first time and use with them in various applications. The 28V power tool platform with Nano(TM) Technology will be available to end users in the Fall of 2007. DeWALT also has plans to launch an 18V platform with Nano(TM) Technology that will be backwards compatible with DEWALT's already extensive line of (38) 18V cordless power tools.

"DeWALT is committed to delivering the most innovative tools designed to meet the needs of professional contractors. We have proven this time and time again with the development of superior product lines. The new tools with Nano(TM) Technology are designed specifically with our users' needs in mind and will provide them with a high-level of performance, superior battery run-time and durability -- all in a lightweight package," commented Pete Morris, VP of DeWALT Cordless Marketing."

DeWALT 28V with Nano(TM) Technology features batteries that are designed with unique Nano-Phosphate lithium-ion cells that provide users with increased battery durability and cycle life, offering 2,000 recharges*. Additionally, Nano(TM) Technology provides 28V with an ergonomic advantage - the drill is the same, or less, weight and size as current 18V drills. Productivity enhancing features such as the drill's self-tightening chuck, the reciprocating saw's 4-position blade clamp, and the rotary hammer's SHOCKS(TM) - Active Vibration Control, help to increase users' productivity on the jobsite.
