People are always looking to add cordless tools to their arsenals, and combo kits have long been a great way to do that without spending a lot of money.
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
Black & Decker’s just-launched MATRIX™ Quick Connect System™ is built around three different base power units and changeable attachments, designed to let users drill, cut, sand and more in a simple, practical way. The ToolSelect community, particularly do-it-yourselfers, are excited to try out the new system.
The MATRIX™ system lets users build an arsenal of cordless tools specific to their projects. Rather than having to buy a pre-determined combination kit, a user can now access some of the industry’s most popular types of cordless tools typically limited to professionals, essentially allowing the user to build his or her own combo kit.
“We focused on a tool system that offers users both the value of large combination kits and the flexibility to choose the tools they need to get their projects done,” said Matt Nestorick, product manager for consumer power tools with Black & Decker. “We also spent a lot of time focused on tool performance to provide users with the tools they need to complete their DIY activities.”
Users have a choice of three base power units: 12V MAX, 20V MAX and 4.0 Amp AC. The cordless models use lithium-ion batteries that can hold a charge up to 18 months, according to Black & Decker.
No matter which base power unit chosen, the MATRIX™ Quick Connect System™ comes with a drill/driver attachment, and six other attachments (impact driver, oscillating multi-tool, jigsaw, detail sander, router, trim saw) are available separately.
“This is a very interesting tool release for the ToolSelect community,” says Gerry Barnaby, Director of Excitement with ToolSelect. “People are always looking to add cordless tools to their arsenals, and combo kits have long been a great way to do that without spending a lot of money. We’re looking forward to what our community members have to say about this new modular system from Black & Decker, which was designed to let users build their own combo kits, in a way.”
