Stanley Black & Decker has recently launched their Stanley FatMax line of power tools in the UK. But instead of silver, black, and yellow, as in Canada and now in the USA, they’re yellow and black with hints of silver.
Note: At the time of this posting, these products are only being marketed outside of the USA.
Stanley’s FatMax power tool lineup, which includes cordless (10.8V and 18V) and corded tools, is engineered for the trade and rated by real pro’s.
Argos, the exclusive UK distributor for these products, describes all of the tools as being great for DIY projects, in the tools’ product pages. The tools have 3-year guarantees that exclude professional use.
You can find these tools via Argos, but they will also soon be available at Homebase, another UK-based DIY and home improvement store.
Is it just me, or do the new FatMax tools have a distinct Dewalt-like color scheme?
I’m having trouble wrapping my head around this. There are Stanley FatMax tools in Canada, one model in the USA, and a new yellow and black Dewalt-colored line in the UK. Stanley describes the tools as being for the trades, but their only distributor advertises them as being for DIYers and with a guarantee that does not apply if you use the tools professionally.
