Introduces New DR1 Drywall Router
Smaller, faster and more durable, DR1 enhances jobsite performance
ROTOZIP® introduces the ultimate in drywall performance -- the DR1 drywall router, specifically designed to meet the demands of the professional user. Smaller, faster and more durable than the current generation drywall router, the DR1's improved ergonomics and amplified power increases jobsite efficiencies and performance.
Weighing in at only 2.8 pounds and measuring 7.5 inches in length, the new drywall-specific router is easy to hold and packs a significant punch. Custom created for drywallers by drywallers, the DR1 is 20 percent shorter and features a smaller grip diameter than its competitors, providing enhanced cutting capabilities and control while minimizing user fatigue.
At 33,000 RPMs versus the competition's 30,000, the DR1 will be the fastest spinning drywall tool on the market when it hits store shelves in September. And, its 6 amps of power delivers up to 45 percent higher speeds under load than other models, providing more power to cut around large areas such as windows and doors.
The tool also features a handy on-tool wrench storage compartment, replaceable motor brushes to reduce jobsite downtime, vents designed to keep dust away from the eyes, revamped XBITS™ capable of cutting more than 2,000 feet of drywall, a redesigned depth guide allowing for maximum visibility, and a durable, hardened steel lock pin encased in solid aluminum to prevent the shaft lock from breaking.
"Professional drywallers were involved in every step of the product development process," said Tim Baker, project manager - ROTOZIP. "They demand a durable, powerful tool that can sustain heavy usage but is easy to handle - making the DR1 the ideal cut-out tool for today's drywaller."
