These 2 new models will be hitting the shelves this week and represent the continuation of the entire Bosch Rotary Hammer overhaul. The new RH745 will replace the 11263EVS rotary hammer while the DH712VC doesn’t directly replace anything it would probably be our choice over the massive 11316EVS if you didn’t want to step up to the inline DH1020VC.
If this all sounds like a bunch of gibberish numbers you’ll very much appreciate Bosch’s simplicity when it comes to their model numbers in this category. RH = Rotary Hammer, DH = Demolition Hammer & BH = Breaker Hammer, after those abbreviations a number that gets larger with more power (Our guess is it’s a metric measurement but doesn’t matter) then at the end any additional letter for specific attributes such as VC = Vibration Control in handle or in the case of the RH540S S = Spline and RH540M M = Max. Any of the older models will not follow this format so they are pretty easy to pick out if you are looking at all the Bosch Hammers together. For more on these specific new hammers check out the full Bosch press release below. Continue reading
At the World of Concrete earlier this year we had the opportunity to run the CS Unitec 7” Concrete Grinder EBS 180 H ($980) with the optional walk behind stand 37217 ($560). For anyone who has spent time using a traditional 7” grinder on concrete will understand while they can do a decent job they are not well designed for this application off extended periods working on the floor. The EBS 180 H has a very powerful 20amp motor specifically designed and geared for this tough application. With a built-in dust port, adjustable guard, flush front, vibration control and duel top handles make this tool ideal for applying various levels of pressure that give the user excellent control, from lightly skimming the surface smooth or heavy material removal.

When it comes to cordless grease guns the Lincoln PowerLuber has been the top dog for many years. Since that time however there have been several new competitors in the marketplace looking to take their share of the pie. Milwaukee is probably the most notable recent entry into the market with popular model options for both M12 & M18 platforms. With the launched of the new 20V PowerLuber kits; Lincoln 1882 1 Battery Kit for $249 & 1884 2 Battery Kit for $299 it looks like Lincoln has added some features that really will separate these cordless grease guns from the rest of the pack.

When doing any woodworking projects a clean strait cutting blade is extremely important. If you’re not cutting strain and square time to get a new saw or at least a tune up. If you want a cleaner cut most of that is going to come down to picking the right saw blade. The Freud Premium Fusion Blades, Full Kerf P410 ($99) and Thin Kerf P410T ($79) are positioned as the cleanest cutting general purpose blades for the money and with several technological advances that make these claim true in many applications.

Milwaukee has been hinting around all week that there was going to be big news coming from the Milwaukee M12 lineup, we thought what could be bigger than the Milwaukee M12 March Madness promotion? The launch of the M12 FUEL Hachzall 2520-21XC however is bigger news as this may be a turning point for some folks to drop their 18V tools and go all M12. We just wish there were a better way to measure saw power, like you can with torque in drilling applications. Milwaukee product Manager Tom Simeone says against the competition it is 70% faster cutting, 4x runtime per charge (using 4.0Ah), reduced vibration, all while getting 6x longer tool life.

The Bosch AirSweep Wet/Dry Vacuums have long been considered top of the line when it comes to jobsite vacuums. The Bosch units were some of the first to include a power tool activation outlet as well as pulse clean feature to keep the filter from clogging prematurely. The unit has always been sealed tight and well powered making it the standard for everyone from woodworkers to those grinding concrete. In recent years these features have become more common as OSHA & EPA regulations become more and more strict. Bosch has now updated these very popular units, available now, check out the 14 gallon automatic VAC140A ($639), 14 semi-automatic VAC140S ($589), 9 gallon automatic VAC090A ($599) and finally the 9 semi-automatic VAC090S ($549).

The video inspection of sewer and drain lines in order to diagnose problems before any work can begin has become the norm. From property managers to plumbers to DIYers it seems everyone is using some sort of video inspection equipment and there are a lot of options for cameras. Back before this technology was so common place however there were only a few basic options, they were black and white, used VHS tapes and were pretty basic. One of the favorites if you only needed 100’ and didn’t need to make a recording the Compact System 100’ system was the way to go.
Over the years the Compact system got upgraded with the MiniPak color monitor but never was able to record. In today’s world however customers and managers have an expectation of detailed pictures/videos of the project. Coming within the next few months the Ridgid Compact2 & CS6Pak System 48113 ($6568) will be launching and we expect it’ll be a big hit. Continue reading
