Electric car engineer to launch new KwikPro trade power tools on Kickstarter
Updated: Nov 17, 2021
An EV engineer is aiming to revolutionise the way professional tradespeople work with the launch of KwiKpro, an innovative new power tool product. The new KwikPro system is launching on Kickstarter.com later this month as part of a crowdfunding campaign targeting a global audience. www.KwikProTool.com
Just as Tesla is leading modernisation in the car business, KwikPro plans to do the same in the power tool world. The cordless KwikPro system is uniquely versatile and the first to offer a full range of professional-grade 18-volt power tools in one convenient case. It is light, easy to use, and extremely portable, allowing faster working times with easy access to a full set of power tools.
“The new technology behind KwikPro is aiming to revolutionise the power tool industry. KwikPro backers will have the opportunity to be in at the start of much-needed innovation which aims to shake up the market and give the existing players lots to think about,” says Robert Fowler, founder of Power Tool Systems.
Fowler has pioneered the KwikPro system’s exclusive Slide-on-Drive™ technology which saves space and weight. KwikPro features cordless motor handles and a full range of tool heads plus a dedicated tool belt for safe, hands-free carrying. The exclusive KwikPro Pro+ motor handle also offers remote control, a further unique innovation for controlling more that one KwikPro motor handle at the same time, as used to great effect with the KwikPro KwikMachine system.
Fowler has enjoyed a successful and diverse career in engineering working on leading edge technologies from hovercraft to electric vehicles. He developed his own design of electric cars and has converted conventional cars to EVs, way ahead of governments and car manufacturers who, at the time, did not believe that electric cars could be viable or commercially successful.
Fowler is using his engineering expertise and vision to spot the potential for a market to attract crowdfunding for his new pioneering power tools. He consults on “all things EV” and has extensive experience of battery powered engineering, knowledge that he has put to good use during the development of the KwikPro system.
The KwikPro system is designed to streamline the way trade professionals work, as Fowler explains; “Shifting loads of power tools in separate cases to different job sites is very inefficient, it wastes time, energy and money, and can also increase the danger of accidents and injuries. KwikPro sets are practical one-case solutions where professionals can easily take all the tools they need for a job with them instead of leaving them in their vehicles where they can often be vulnerable to theft.”
KwikPro systems feature high-performance 18-volt brushless motor handles powered by lithium batteries and a selection of interchangeable tool attachments. The motor handles, tool attachments and batteries slide together to create a full range of both professional and DIY grade power tools, including: rotary and impact drills, impact screwdrivers and wrenches, an angle grinder, jig and reciprocating saws and an oscillating multi tool.
Three versions of the KwikPro handle will be offered: KwikPro Lite for occasional and light DIY duties, Pro for continuous and professional duties and Pro+, the Pro with remote control.
Power Tool Systems plans to offer KwikPro sets for pre-order on Kickstarter.com late November 2021.
Prices will be competitive with conventional professional and DIY power tools from established brands.
