New DEWALT ® 24 Inch Tote with Power Tool Case Provides an Innovative Organization and Storage Solution for Contractors

TOWSON, Md. (April 21, 2011) – DEWALT announced today the introduction of its 24 Inch Tote with Power Tool Case (DWST24070). The two-in-one storage solution allows contractors to easily store power tools, hand tools and accessories—like drill bits, nails and screws—in the power tool case, which also functions as a lid. For internal storage customization, the tool case has a removable divider that stores larger items in the bottom of the tote, helping to eliminate the need for multiple tool bags.

“Our new storage solution offers contractors a means of organizing, sorting and transporting their tools from one jobsite to the next,” said Naama Eylon, storage commercialization manager. “After talking to contractors on jobsites across the country, we realized that there was a demand for a versatile and durable storage container that eliminates the need for multiple tool boxes and bags. With proven technology and innovations that matter, we’re confident that this product will meet professionals’ functional needs and deliver the durability and quality they expect from DEWALT .”

Designed and continually optimized to perform under real-life conditions, the power tool case boasts a clearly visible yellow button on the front of the unit that allows for easy detaching/attaching of the tool case to the tote.

For trouble-free transportation around the jobsite, the tote is equipped with a reinforced metal handle that allows for an easy grip and enables the unit to carry a maximum load of 70 pounds.

Looking to build an easy-to-use and durable storage solution, the DEWALT unit’s handle stays in a locked position when the case is being carried upright, but it easily folds to a side when the unit is placed on a surface. The tool case also features anti-rust metal latches and hinges for durability.

Complete with a limited lifetime warranty, the 24 Inch Tote with Power Tool Case will be available at The Home Depot as well as independent distributors beginning in June 2011, and it is expected to retail for approximately $25.
