Ft. Myers, FLA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
This June 17, Father’s Day, will honor fathers throughout the country and, as usual, the necktie will lead the parade of gifts showered on Dear Old Dad in recognition of the many gifts he has bestowed on the lives of his family.
Dad doesn’t want another tie, though. He wants power tools.
In recognition of fathers and what they really want on the Big Day, Wholesale Power Tools – Construction Supply Superstore, a leading online retailer of power tools, generators, construction and metalworking equipment, bits, blades, fasteners and more, is holding a Father’s Day Sale through June at http://www.wholesalepowertools.com/ with significant savings and extras on corded and cordless power tools from leading manufacturer Makita, and on metal and wood shop tools from Jet and Powermatic.
Wholesale Power Tools is featuring additional savings on already low wholesale prices on a wide variety of Makita power tools, and is throwing in a Free third lithium-ion battery, a $100 value, with several of the line’s highly popular 2-piece cordless combination kits and a 3-speed Makita Impact Driver. There is also Free Shipping offered on a selection of the most desirable tools and kits in the Makita line.
In addition, Wholesale Power Tools has a 10% off sale through June 30th on professional-grade metal- and woodworking shop tools from the Jet brand, known the world over as the gold standard for true craftsmen. Plus, also through June 30th, select Powermatic shop tools are featured with 17% savings.
Just to prove the point on what Dad actually wants as a Father’s Day gift, Wholesale Power Tools offers the following statistics: According to the study Power & Hand Tools, conducted by the Cleveland-based industry data research firm The Freedonia Group, demand for tools is growing at a 3.3% annual rate and should reach $14.5 billion in the U.S. in 2012, with the growth in demand from consumers outpacing that of professionals. At the same time, a recent Gallup Poll showed that only 6% of American men wear a tie to work every day, and the nation’s #1 necktie maker, Phillips-Van Heusen Corp., says sales of ties has dropped to 50 million a year from a high of nearly 250 million annually some 40 years ago.
Besides, even men who wear ties to work join their more casual brethren in the Do-It-Yourself-er category at home, using power drills, sanders, saws, drivers, nailers, staplers, trimmers, vacuums, cordless tools and more to build stuff, make repairs, and basically be the envy of all the other fathers in the neighborhood.
The highlight of power tools in the Makita line are the cordless models featuring both lithium-ion batteries and exclusive Makita brushless motor technology. The lithium-ion batteries charge much faster than the traditional nickel-cadmium type, and they hold a charge about 50% longer, both factors that keep the tools on the job longer.
But it’s the brushless motor technology that is really blazing a trail in the power tool world. Called Makita BL™ Brushless Motor Technology, this innovation in power tools was created by Makita in 2003 for assembly work in the defense and aerospace industries. In 2009 Makita expanded its offering, delivering an 18V LXT Brushless Motor Impact Driver for contractors, and now the technology is available on a wide variety of power hand tools for the professional and DIY-er alike. Makita’s efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. And since there are no carbon brushes, the BL™ Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life, always a great savings.
A featured item in the Makita Father’s Day sale at Wholesale Power Tools is the LXT239 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 2-Pc. Kit, which includes a ½” Hammer Driver-Drill and a Brushless Impact Driver, both featuring the brushless motor technology and lithium-ion batteries, plus a Free third 18V lithium-ion battery as part of the this special Makita sale. The kit is available now with Free Shipping. Get complete information at http://www.wholesalepowertools.com/makita/.
