PRODUCT FOCUS: TOOLS BATTERY ADAPTER DEWALT's 20V MAX battery adapter works with most DEWALT 18V tools.

Www.dewalt.com PIPE WRENCH The Milwaukee Tool Cheater pipe wrench offers end users a three-length adaptable design that provides versatility on jobs that previously required multiple sizes. The wrench comes with two interchangeable handles which allows it to operate in three modes: 10" mode for access in confined areas; 18" mode for general purpose use; and 24" mode for additional reach and leverage. The reduced weight of the wrench in 24" mode puts less strain on the user and maximizes productivity, Milwaukee Tool states.
