Dewalt is soon releasing a 25-foot measuring tape, as part of their new hand tool lineup. The new high-visibility 25′ x 1.25″ tape features a whopping 13-foot blade standout, oversized end hook, and a durable rubber slide.
A special 3M thermoplastic film is adhered to the first 6-inches of the blade to help increase its durability and extend its lifespan. The blade is also Mylar coated for additional protection.
The tape measure (DWHT33385) will be available June 2011 at Home Depot and independent distributors with an MSRP of $25.
Although Dewalt’s new short tape looks akin to Stanley’s 25′ FatMax Extreme tape measure, which also has a 13′ standout, there looks to be enough distinct blade and body differences to differentiate the two.
