Confident Bank Holiday DIY with the new Black & Decker® High Performance range Wednesday 24 August 2011 PDF Print If you’re a dab hand at DIY and looking to take on a more challenging project in your home this bank holiday weekend, Black & Decker® has designed the perfect power tools for you. The new Black & Decker High Performance range eliminates the need to call in a professional, allowing you to successfully complete more complex jobs yourself and still have time to enjoy the extra day off work. Highlights include the lightweight and compact Cordless 10.8v Drill Driver, Impact Driver and Reciprocating Saw, all with Lithium Ion technology to ensure the tools are ready to use when you need them and last for the duration of the job. The 10.8v products are equipped with a 1.3ah lithium battery and charger that gives full charge within 30 minutes, meaning your tools will be ready to use whenever you need them. The vertical slide pack battery is inserted into the handle of the products, making them more compact and comfortable to use. These tools have been developed specifically to give the DIYer total control for any job and allow easy access to confined spaces – ultimately allowing you to be more efficient! Black & Decker brand ambassador, TV designer and renovation expert Ben Hillman comments: "The new High Performance range from Black & Decker® is ideal for completing an array of tasks around the home and garden, reducing the need to call in a professional. I am currently renovating my home and have used the products for a number of projects including creating under stair storage, installing kitchen cupboards and constructing decking in the garden." "The size and weight of the 10.8v tools means they are comfortable and easy to manoeuvre and the powerful lithium battery ensures top performance.
