FLEX cordless drill drivers with brushless motors
Steinheim, February 2018 – When it comes to drilling and screwing tasks, professionals need high-performance cordless tools that cover a wide range of applications. These requirements are met by two new 18 V cordless drill drivers from FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH, which will be available from dealers from February 2018 onwards. The FLEX DD 2G 18.0-EC cordless drill driver and the FLEX PD 2G 18.0-EC cordless hammer drill driver have brushless motors and combine high performance with a practical size.
“FLEX has boosted its cordless range with its new long-life cordless drill driver and cordless hammer drill driver and has thus taken a further step towards “brushless” tools,” confirms Oliver Gnann-Geiger, Head of Marketing at FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH. “The DD and PD 2G 18.0-EC have 90 Nm, making them some of the most powerful cordless drivers of their class that can master almost any drilling and screwdriving task: in the workshop, on the construction site or as a portable tool.”
Both the new DD 2G 18.0-EC and the PD 2G 18.0-EC come with a removable 13 mm quick-action drill chuck as standard. A bit holder and an angle attachment, which can both be attached without tools, extend the range of applications and provide a high level of flexibility. The FLEX DD 2G cordless drill driver has 23 torque settings plus a drilling/screwing setting for optimum adaptation to any material. The FLEX PD 2G cordless hammer drill driver offers a selection of 23 torque settings plus a drilling/screwing and hammer-drill setting.
Safety and comfort
In keeping with their performance, FLEX has designed the features of the new brushless, cordless drills completely with a view to safe handling. The especially ergonomic handle with a soft grip surface sits securely in the hand, while the accelerator trigger switch with locking function provides additional safety. The intelligent Electronic Management System, integrated discharge protection and an easy-to-read charge status indicator provide additional safety functions. The cordless drills have an integrated LED lamp with persistence function to enable the user to produce particularly clean work even where visibility is poor. Suitable battery packs are available for both 2.5 Ah and 5.0 Ah.
The new brushless FLEX DD 2G 18.0-EC cordless drill driver and the FLEX cordless hammer drill driver PD 2G 18.0-EC will both be available from February 2018 at a recommended retail price starting at € 225.00 (DD 2G 18.0-EC and PD 2G 18.0-EC) plus VAT.
