DEWALT has expanded its line of hammers with 14 tools, highlighted by the XP Extended Performance series that offers features including More Swing, Less Sting vibration dampening technology, easy-to-grip handles, and side nail pullers. With a comprehensive line of hammers, DEWALT offers solutions for framing, finishing, and specialty use including demoing and forestry, including the 22 ounce, one-piece Steel Hammer (DWHT51381), winner of the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards in the hammers category.
With its grip vibration dampening technology, each XP Hammer reduces sting by 35 percent while also improving grip durability by 25 percent. Lowering vibration and increasing grip durability helps to reduce arm fatigue and helps the hammers stand up to rigorous use, making them the optimal solution for professional users. Additionally, the handle material offers moisture resistance to help prevent slippage and promote safety on the jobsite. The hammers also include a Tri-Pull feature for removing framing nails, finish nails, and staples.
A total of six tools are part of the Extended Performance XP Hammers. In addition to the 16- and 20-ounce General Purpose Hammers and the 22 ounce Framing Hammer, the XP line also includes the 18 ounce Wood Framing Hammer (DWHT51383) that feature carbon fiber composite overstrike protection for 25 percent added durability to help prevent handle breakage.
DEWALT will also be adding to its offering with an eight-tool range of claw, framing, and specialty hammers and a hatchet. These hammers focus on balance, durability and functionality. Available where DEWALT products are sold, each hammer will come standard with a Lifetime Limited Warranty from DEWALT.
