Klein 20V Max Tools For Electricians

Klein 20V Max

Remember those old comic book crossover issues? Not so much the ones where Marvel characters made an appearance in other Marvel titles, like Spiderman showing up in a few X-Force issues, but when characters hopped brand divisions. I’m thinking more like the time when the Incredible Hulk jumped his way into the DC universe to dole out a beating on the Batman. It was a whole lot of fun for us comic book super nerds, and I’ve got to imagine that from a business perspective, the Marvel/DC team-up issues drove some serious comic sales. What does that have to do with Klein 20V Max tools?

I bring this up, not only for the sake of my own nostalgic self-indulgence but also to draw a parallel for all you power tool super fans out there. It seems like Klein and DeWalt have their own “crossover issue” in the works right now. For those electricians out there who love a good Klein tool, but wish there were a few cordless Klein options out there, prepare to nerd out real hard. Klein has teamed up with DeWalt in order to bring a line of battery-powered electrician’s tools to market. The new line of Klein 20V Max tools for electricians will include a cordless 7-ton cable cutter and crimper, a cordless 12-ton crimper, gear-driven cordless cable cutters, and a 7/16″ cordless impact wrench. All of these new tools will run on DeWalt’s 20V Max battery platform.

From Klein

“Klein’s new line of battery-operated tools helps linemen work more efficiently by reducing time and effort spent on each task. The complete product line is built to be Klein tough, standing up to the jobsite challenges professionals face every day. Powered by DeWalt lithium-ion batteries, these tools help get the job done with greater cutting, crimping and drilling power than alternative models.”

-Kozeta Topchian, product manager at Klein Tools

And Don’t Forget…

 Klein 20V Max tools are also compatible with DeWalt FlexVolt batteries. So whether you’re going for the most runtime or the lightest weight, there’s a wide range of battery packs to choose from.
