Just announced at STAFDA last month we got a first look at the new Southwire Maxis XD1 Circuit Puller with 600 lbs pull / 1000 lbs peak pull force with ultra-portability. Shown with the Milwaukee M18 Hammer Drill 2804-22($299) NOT INCLUDED but works with about any professional 18V drill from Dewalt, Makita, Metabo, Bosch or any other pro brand. Price on this is around $1500 and will be available very soon, really the first of its kind and we think for some may be a very nice solution. Continue reading →

The various knives shown above are part of the new EdgeForce knife series courtesy of Southwire. While each individual model has their own personality and function, they all share the same features. These features include an inner liner lock, metal handles with rubber grip, reversible belt clip, and dual thumb openers. These knives also come equipped with D2 steel, along with stonewash black oxide coating. This allows the knives to hold their edge longer than other models. All knives come with a lifetime warranty.

We’ve seen digital angle finders before but we have really been impressed by the new Stabila Tech 700DA digital angle / miter finder levels. The 18” level 39018 and 32” level 039032 really hit a wide range of applications and both feature IP54 durability for jobsite toughness. Rich from Stabila shows us how this is a digital speed square, digital miter finder, digital bevel gauge and duel bubble level all in one package.

Just announced Southwire will be launching 2 new digital multimeters that pack a lot of professional features at a very aggressive price. Starting with the manual ranging 10031S($25) which is rated up to CAT III 300V, AC/DC, includes test leads and the same tough housing that can take a 6’ drop like all their other higher end units. The step up auto-ranging 10041N($45) is rated up to CAT III 600V, similar features but adds non-contact AC detector, frequency, temperature and duty cycle. For professionals doing mostly residential these meters may check all the boxes. For commercial electricians where higher voltage and/or CAT IV is required clearly these meter are not going to be the right solution for you.
For years we’ve battled bulky motors sticking out of the side of the miter saw and though why can’t they figure out how to get this thing out of the way completely. It just takes a Worm Drive and BOOM the motors way back there, which potentially more torque. The STAFDA launch was just a sneak preview this thing isn’t going to hit the shelves until April 2019 with a $579 price tag which makes it right up there with other premium miter saw options. It is very light for a 12″ at only 51 lbs and has all the bells & whistles you’d expect for that price. Check out SkilSaw on Ohio Power Tool, Pre-Sale options for the SPT88-01 will be available soon!
Each year the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio selects several of the area’s top crews and projects for the BX Craftsmanship Awards. With so many amazing projects completed each year this is truly a difficult decision for the judges. The team at Ohio Power Tool could not be more honored to continue to sponsor these awards each year. The recognition of these hardworking tradesmen is just a small token for all they do to shape our cities!
