Black & Decker®– Powerful Gifts For the Action Man in Your Life Wednesday 30 May 2007 PDF Print Black & Decker®– Powerful Gifts For the Action Man in Your Life While Mother’s Day is synonymous with rest and relaxation, Father’s Day is an entirely different affair. Dads, typically action men at heart, love nothing more than escaping and getting busy in the shed. So if you really want to give Dad a treat this Father’s Day, forget novelty socks and go for something that will make him feel like the original alpha male. Black & Decker® have a full range of products from garden gadgets, to innovative tools and accessories that will help power up the action man in your life and have him flying through that to-do list of DIY tasks. Put the ‘Grrr’ back into gardening with the Black & Decker® GK1000 Alligator® powered lopper, a truly revolutionary garden tool that combines the power and speed of a chainsaw with the ease of use of a pair of garden shears. Built to last, and ten times faster than a manual saw, the GK1000 Alligator® powered lopper makes light work of tree branches and shrubs alike. If your Dad is always looking for volunteers to help hang pictures or put up shelves take a look at the Black & Decker® range of cordless hammer drills. These convenient and powerful drills offer both strength and durability. With two speeds this superb range can tackle metal, masonry or timber with ease. Used alongside the LZR210 laser level, Dad will have no excuse when it comes to putting everything up straight. The LZR210 laser level can even detect pipes in the walls, so there is no risk of him drilling through anything he shouldn’t! Or take the sweat, strain and struggle out of sawing by treating your Dad to the Black & Decker® HANDISAW™ Cordless Powered Saw. Without the bulk and scary appearance of a manual hand saw, this ‘go anywhere’ tool makes light work of all cutting tasks – making it a tool kit must have. Avoid stripped screws that can no longer be unscrewed or tightened by giving your Dad a 3.6V Compact™ screwdriver. The compact size has a forward and reverse switch and is ideal for all screwdriving applications whether it be hanging pictures or assembling flat pack furniture. It comes with a handy cradle charger which means that the screwdriver can be left on charge, therefore always ready for use. We all know that Dads are messy creatures, but shoddy post-DIY clear up can no longer be an excuse if armed with the Black & Decker® Dustbuster® Pivot handheld vacuum cleaner. The suction from the powerful 12V and 14.4V offers maximum performance for the more demanding cleaning chores, and the distinctive pivoting nose enables easy cleaning for all those hard to reach nooks and crannies, such as under the newly assembled cupboards or shelves Dads just put up! -Ends- Notes to Editors: BLACK & DECKER® is a registered trademark of the Black & Decker Corporation Alligator® is a registered trademark of the Black & Decker® Corporation The Black & Decker® GK1000 Alligator® powered lopper is priced £99.99 available from leading retailers nationwide.
