August 19, 2008

LASALLE, IL. – JC Whitney, partnered with Pro-Grade™, is proud to present its new line of professional-quality mechanics'tools.

Pro Grade tools – lowest price guaranteed, on JCWhitney.com !Our Pro-Grade™ hand tools are designed and built with one goal in mind — to equip our customers with the best possible quality at the lowest possible prices. To ensure durability and performance, we start by using only the finest materials like chrome-vanadium steel or alloy, chrome nickel and high-carbon tool steel. We then employ the latest design innovations and ergonomic styling because we believe our tools should not only work hard, they should look good doing it. Precise manufacturing techniques and strict quality controls guarantee they will meet or exceed ANSI (American National Standards Institute) or U.S. Federal performance specifications. We're so sure of their quality and toughness, we back each and every one of them with a 48-hour free replacement warranty for the life of the tool.

We offer ratchet and socket sets and a complete array of wrenches in SAE and metric sizes plus specialty sockets (Torx, hex), screwdrivers and a selection of hand tools including pliers, hammers and files that would make any serious mechanic proud. The exclusive Dyna-Drive™ Torque System on all Pro-Grade™ sockets and combination wrenches improves fastener driving performance compared to conventional systems. The unique characteristics of the Dyna-Drive™ System ensures up to 20% more driving torque with no slippage or fastener damage. All ratchets incorporate a quick-release feature to speed up the work.

Professional-quality Pro-Grade™ tools are comparable to some of the finest tools available today and JC Whitney is dedicated to offer them at the lowest prices. And now's the time to buy. Anyone buying a Pro-Grade™ tool before August 31 will get a 10% discount off our already low everyday price.
