If you really want to give Dad a treat this Father’s Day, forget novelty socks and shaving kits, go for something that will really make him feel like the original alpha male.

Put the ‘Grrr’ back into gardening with the new 18v Cordless Alligator© Powered Lopper. Lightweight and versatile, not only does it provide 18v power for faster lopping and cutting, but the cordless design also provides the freedom to roam without the danger of cutting through the cord. This desirable gardening gadget combines the power and speed of a chainsaw with the ease of use of a pair of garden shears.

If in reality, dad would be hard pushed to hang a picture let alone put up a shelf, help him impress with the new AUTOSELECT™ Drill. This latest drill from Black & Decker® will make DIY mishaps and guess work a thing of the past. There is no need to puzzle over torque control, gears, hammer action, or speed settings. By using the clear and logical icons on the head of the drill all Dad has to do is simply choose the most appropriate application for the job. The AUTOSELECT™ Drill does the hard part by quickly and automatically adjusting to the correct speed and power required. The only thing left to do is use the most suitable drill bit.

Dads seem to be constantly battling against a barrage of kids, pets and messy co-pilots in a bid to keep their car looking at its best. Give his cleaning routine a boost with the new Dustbuster® Pivot Auto Vac from Black & Decker®. Designed specifically for the automotive market this handy and compact cleaner makes fast work of dirt and grime.

The new Dustbuster® Pivot Auto Vac boasts a pivoting head that locks into 10 different cleaning positions, coupled with the extendable crevice tool this powerful hand vac can efficiently tackle even the most hard to reach spots. The generous five metre cable, which plugs directly into the cigarette lighter, means Dad won’t be straining to reach the boot.
