Power tools
Power to the workers


Professionals and DIY enthusiasts all over the world love our power tools. And with good reason: they’re powerful, reliable, and versatile. And we’re always finding new ways to make them even better. We are market and/or technology leaders in many areas – by design. One of the many fields we have pioneered is battery-operated tools: we were the first manufacturer to use innovative lithium-ion technology in our cordless drill/drivers.


Every year, our Power Tools division launches hundreds of new products and accessories for craftsmen/industry, DIY, and gardening. These innovations account for around 40% of our total sales in this area. The best example: our Ixo cordless drill/driver, the world’s best-selling power tool of all time.
