WORX Pegasus quickly sets up wherever needed – on a basement or garage floor, driveway, patio or jobsite.
Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
As the number of holiday shopping days dwindle down, so do the choices of most-wanted tool gifts for do-it-yourselfers. Have no fear, because stores and online retailers still are well-stocked with tool innovations from WORX®, including the new WORX Pegasus™ Worktable, WORX Aerocart™ with snow plow and firewood carrier attachments, WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw and WORX 20V Switchdriver™.
WORX Pegasus is ready for DIY duty the minute it’s unwrapped. This space-saving, folding worktable doubles as a sawhorse that supports up to half a ton (1,000 lbs.). It quickly sets up wherever needed – on a basement or garage floor, driveway, patio or jobsite.
Pegasus has a 31 x 25 in. tabletop that supports up to 300 lbs. Built-in, aluminum channels are equipped with two quick-clamps (provided) that hold wood for cutting, sanding, gluing or finishing. There also are slots for four clamp dogs (provided) to secure circular or irregular-shaped work pieces. A lower storage shelf holds frequently used tools and materials, and includes a place to attach a power strip. Pegasus also interlocks with another Pegasus tabletop (optional) from the side or back to provide an expanded work surface.
To use Pegasus as a sawhorse, the tabletop’s extension wings fold down and lay flat on both sides. Notches at both ends of each sawhorse hold 2x4s for elevating 4x8 sheet goods for clamping. This arrangement supports crosscuts and rip-cuts without cutting into the sawhorses.
The WORX Pegasus Worktable (WX051, $99.99) is available at worx.com and online retailers, including Lowe’s and Amazon. The worktable is backed by the WORX 3 year warranty.
WORX Aerocart – the multi-purpose wheelbarrow, yard cart and dolly – now has an optional Snow Plow Attachment that converts it into a wheeled snow plow. The snow plow accessory provides added leverage to move or lift snow off driveways, sidewalks and patios without straining. Unlike shoveling, both hands stay on the cart’s handles, so the user’s weight, plus the weight of the cart, are combined to move snow. When lifting snow, weight is absorbed by the cart, not the user’s back.
The Aerocart snow plow attachment is easy to install, and has three height adjustments. Its curved, 26-inch-wide blade is constructed of high-impact plastic resin with a galvanized steel wear strip.
Another gift idea to lighten the wintertime load is the optional Aerocart Firewood Carrier, which combines a sturdy steel frame with a wear-resistant, dual-layer canvas wrap. The firewood carrier quickly and easily attaches without tools to Aerocart in the dolly position. It’s easy to load and unload, and manages up to 177 lbs. of firewood or other bulky items. Weighing only 3.8 lbs without load, it detaches in seconds and folds flat for storage.
Aerocart can be used year-round for dozens of other moving projects around the house, yard or workplace. It easily converts between a wheelbarrow, yard cart, bag holder, dolly, extended dolly, cylinder carrier, rock/plant mover and trailer tote. Aerocart’s patented two-wheel design and specially-shaped tub balances the load, and makes a 200-lb. load feel like 17 lbs. It is covered by the WORX 3 year warranty.
WORX Aerocart (WG050, $139.96), Snow Plow Attachment (WA0230, $39.99) and Firewood Carrier (WA0232, $39.99) are available at http://www.worx.com and Home Depot. Other optional accessories include a Wagon Conversion Kit, (WA0228, $79.99); Tub Organizer, (WA0234, $39.99); and Water Bag Attachment, (WA0229, $19.99).
WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw enables do-it-yourselfers to tackle any number of building, remodeling, woodworking and maintenance projects. This compact circular saw features a 4-1/2 in. blade and can cut a 2x4 in a single pass. The saw weighs only 4.4 lbs. It’s great for cutting trim, siding and sheet goods, as well as plunge cutting jobs, without the bulk or weight associated with full-size saws.
The saw’s 4-1/2 in. thin-kerf blade is less than half the thickness of larger 7-1/4 in. circular saw blades. The smaller, thinner blade takes less effort handle many of the same jobs as full-size circular saws.
WORXSAW features a metal retractable lower blade guard, depth-of-cut adjustment lever and push-button arbor lock for fast blade changes. Maximum cutting depth at 90° is 1-11/16 in. and bevel capacity at 45° is 1-1/8 in.
WORXSAW’s accessories include a 4-1/2 in., 24-tooth, carbide-tipped blade, vac adapter, parallel edge guide, and allen wrench for blade changes. The WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw (WX429L, $59.99) is available at http://www.worx.com and online retailers including Walmart, Home Depot, Amazon and Menards. It’s covered by the WORX 3-year warranty.
WORX 20V MaxLithium Switchdriver is a new twist on cordless drilling and driving that will be appreciated many times over by holiday gift recipients. The one-of-a-kind, drill- driver has a rotating head equipped with two ¼-inch chucks to load various combinations of drill and/or driver bits.
Switchdriver’s design allows the user to drill a pilot hole, and then rotate the head to switch chucks and sink the screw with a driver bit. This unique design also comes in handy when alternating between a countersink and driver bit, installing blinds or shelves with drywall anchors or completing assembly projects with different bit types.
Switchdriver weighs only 3 lbs. (with battery) and has an 11-position clutch with electronic torque control to prevent stripping of screws. The cordless drill/driver features a comfortable overmold grip, hand guard and LED worklight. It includes two 20V, 1.5 Ah batteries, a five-hour charger, carrying bag, two double-ended drill bits (1/8 in., 3/32 in.) and one #2 Phillips bit.
The WORX 20V MaxLithium Switchdriver (WX176L, $99.99) is available at http://www.worx.com and online retailers, including Lowe’s, Walmart, Home Depot and Amazon. The tool is covered by the WORX 3-year warranty.
