ACDelco-Licensed 8v Power Tool Platform Wins Award

Proving that a smaller, more nimble package can still make big power, the ACDelco-licensed 8v platform of power tools has been named Best New Platform by the website Tools in Action.

• Li-ion drill/driver (ARD847; 1.2 lbs.) with maximum torque of 111 in.-lbs., torque adjustment collar, automatic spindle lock, and built-in, super-bright LED;
• Li-ion LED flashlight (ARL836), with up to eight hours of run time, built-in magnets for attaching to metal surfaces, and anti-slip soft grip; and
• Li-ion 3/8-in. impact wrench (ARI810T; 1.2 lbs.) with category-leading maximum torque of 75 lb.-ft., faster speed applications, responsive VSR switch, and built-in, super-bright LED.

The entire ACDelco-licensed lineup of more than 60 power tools and accessories includes impact, ratchet and torque wrenches, drill/drivers, polishers, grinders and work lights – available in air, cordless and digital models.
