HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Slim's Power Tools, the largest locally owned power tool distributor in Hawaii, presents the 25th annual He-Man competition scheduled for Sunday, April 29, 2018 on Oahu. Thirty-three male and female contestants compete in this highly physical and emotional battle, demonstrating the accuracy, convenience and speed power tools provide. During the preliminary round, each contestant uses hand tools in a series of four events with the fastest four competitors moving on to the final round.

"It's not always the biggest person that wins," said Rand Okemura, coordinator of the He-Man Competition. "The competition tests speed, skill and accuracy and it showcases the convenience of using power tools."  Modeled after lumberjack competitions, the He-Man Competition continues to increase in popularity every year.

The public is invited to watch this free battle of skill at the Kalihi store beginning with the preliminary round at 10:30 a.m., a fundraising event for the American Diabetes Association of Hawaii at 1:00 p.m., and the final round at 1:30 p.m.

This year's half-time show features the "Unscrew da Screw" event for the American Diabetes Association of Hawaii. Four teams will remove 2" screws from a piece of wood for five minutes, while alternating between a screwdriver and a cordless screwdriver. Each screw removed is worth $10 towards the American Diabetes Association of Hawaii, with over $25,000 donated from Slim's Power Tools through the years. In the final round of the He-Man competition, the grand prize winner will receive a $2,500 Slim's Power Tools shopping spree. All contestants receive a He-Man Competitors T-shirt.

This heated competition will also be accompanied by Slim's Power Tools Clearance Sale featuring hundreds of items at discount prices, vendor demonstrations and every single power tool on sale. The sale begins at 8:00 a.m.
