Porter-Cable Takes The Wheel With Enhanced Screwdriver Line


Porter-Cable Takes The Wheel With Enhanced Screwdriver Line
6/20/2002

JUNE 20, 2002 – NEW YORK CITY, NY – Porter-Cable Corporation announced today at a press conference at New York City’s Hotel Intercontinental the introduction of three new drivers with enhanced features designed to endure hard, repetitive use. “A comfortable, continuous-use tool that tolerates everyday wear and tear is important to professionals,” said Porter-Cable Product Manager Todd Craft. “Porter-Cable’s new line of screwdrivers delivers power and durability to work as hard as professionals do everyday.”

While each of Porter-Cable’s three new drivers is designed for specific applications, they all offer similar enhancements. The model 4630 (0-5,000 RPM screwdriver), model 4634 (0-2,500 RPM screwdriver), and model 4640 (0-2,500 RPM Teks™ and nut driver) all feature a variable speed 6.8 Amp motors, 100-percent ball and needle bearing construction reversing, and precision machined and hardened steel gearing. Cast aluminum gear housings and magnesium bearing plates, along with glass filled nylon nose pieces combine to provide durability for longevity in tough applications. All models feature dust-sealed switches to prevent potential switch failure on the job.

Ergonomic features include depth setters that are easy to adjust and that don’t lose their depth setting when removed, ergonomic triggers and forward/reverse levers, conveniently located “lock-on” switches, and smaller multi-position soft-grip handles. Multi-position belt clips make it convenient for users to attach the drivers in any position – right or left-handed. “Porter-Cable was able to increase the drivers’ power, life and durability, while at the same time making it ergonomically-friendly without increasing its weight,” Craft said. All three drivers include a one-year warranty. *** Please refer to the attached driver model breakdowns for specifications, availability dates, and price information.
