Black+Decker Announces New Range of Powerful Cordless Lithium Ion Handheld Vacuums
Jun 24 14
BLACK+DECKER announced a new range of powerful cordless Lithium Ion handheld vacuums. The collection includes the 20V MAX* & 16V MAX* Lithium Flex(TM) Vacs with Floor Heads and the 20V MAX* Lithium Pivot(TM) Vac. Lithium Ion battery technology has enhanced the performance of BLACK+DECKER's handheld vacuums. Other types of batteries fade and lose suction, making it difficult for homeowners to complete their cleaning task before running out of power. Instead, Lithium Ion batteries offer strong suction and fade-free power throughout their use giving homeowners the confidence that they can complete tasks quickly and conveniently. The lightweight and compact 20V MAX* & 16V MAX* Lithium Flex Vacs with Floor Heads offer limitless versatility and are the ultimate in portable, multi-functional vacuuming. No longer just a simple hand-carried vacuum, the Flex Vacs provide easy clean-up high or low, in the house or car, and on any floor surface -- wood, tile, carpet, rugs, etc. Choose between the new stick vac attachment for floors or use the four foot extendable hose for detail work and hard-to-reach areas. Accessories include: Stick vac attachment with swivel floor head; Rubberized pet hair brush attachment (20V only); Flip-up dusting brush; Crevice tool; Charging base with tool and accessory storage. Additionally, BLACK+DECKER's all-purpose 20V MAX* Lithium Pivot Vac has strong and consistent suction provided by the 20V MAX* Lithium Ion battery. The Pivot is not only powerful, but it's also compact and can be stored within easy reach to any mess. A distinctive pivoting nose feature enables easy cleaning for those hard to reach areas, such as under cupboards, above tall shelves, and in between couch cushions. Accessories include: Onboard crevice tool; Onboard brush; Charging base with tool storage.
Black & Decker Corp. Faces Lawsuits in Baltimore over Table Saws
Sep 11 13
Black & Decker Corp. is facing federal lawsuits in Baltimore from at least four consumers alleging they were injured using the Towson toolmaker's table saws. The lawsuits, filed by plaintiffs from Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and Arkansas, allege that table saws designed, made or sold by Black & Decker were defective because they were not being equipped with a device called a riving knife. A riving knife is a small metal device that reduces the chances of the wood jerking back and causing the saw operator's hands from being pulled into the saw's blades, according to the lawsuit. The four lawsuits, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, allege that the plaintiffs suffered "severe and permanent personal injuries" when their fingers came in contact with the saw blade.
