New Britain, CT – June 14, 2006 - The Stanley Works (NYSE: SWK) unveils the new FatMax™ Mobile Project Center, an innovative two-in-one product that combines a convenient work surface with the functionality of a hand cart. The heavy duty metal legs and robust frame allow the hand cart to carry 220 lbs, also allowing the work surface to support 660 lbs. Integrated clamps and electric sockets provide the user with easy access to essential functions and superior mobility. The FatMax™ Mobile Project Center converts easily from a hand cart to a work surface with just three simple steps and folds flat for easy transport and storage.
The FatMax™ Mobile Project Center is designed with maximum mobility in mind. The telescopic handles on the practical hand cart provide the user with a comfortable ergonomic grip when carrying heavy loads, while the heavy duty wheels allow for easy maneuvering up and down stairs and around the job site.
The work surface is set at an ideal 33 inches high and is equipped with two solider clamps with rotating handles that provide an easy way to secure any project. Special inserts in the work surface and a 3-outlet power strip with cable holder have been integrated into the design to provide organization and electricity for power tools while also keeping the user safe.
“There are very few products on the market that offer this type of versatility while also providing a power supply,” said John Tisera, Stanley’s global product manager for storage solutions. “End users will continue to discover the benefits of the FatMax™ Mobile Project Center, whether they’re using the hand cart, the integrated clamps or the power strip.”
