Milwaukee M18 Switch Tank Backpack Sprayers

Another huge launch from Milwaukee Tool this week, stepping into a new category with a ton of applications for concrete and landscape professionals. Shocking to us this and other huge launches are all coming out before the big #NPS19 event which leads us to ask, what is bigger than these are they saving to launch at the event? This M18 Switch Tank System really is going to be a game changer and has a ton of very smart features. Of course being on one of the most popular battery platforms is a huge advantage over anything out now but they did some very smart things here including building the tanks & hoses to be completely self-contained so there is no chance of mixing chemicals anywhere in the tank, pump, hose or wand.

M18 Switch Tank Water

Basically there is one M18 Switch Tank Base and 3 tank options (pesticide, concrete chemical, water supply) depending on which tank you want first you’re looking at $399-$439 for the kit which includes 1x 3.0Ah battery (enough charge for 12 tanks). From there additional tanks are $149-$164 so it’s very easy to keep everything totally separate. Many of the Kits will be launching early March, Pre-Sale up on Ohio Power Tool M18 Tools page starting February 1st if not sooner. (more…)

Diamond Products Core Bore Rigs CB733 & CB744

Core Bore M-5PRO CB744 Core Rig

When it comes to professional concrete cutting and drilling the team at Diamond Products leads the way in many categories, from Concrete Core Bits, Walk Behind Concrete Saws, Diamond Blades and of course Core Drilling Rigs. The Diamond Products Core Bore name is who the pros call any size coring jobs, up to 60″+ diameter no problem. For 2” to 14” coring the Milwaukee Core Motors have been the standard for many years, relatively unchanged these 2 speed motors are real workhorses and you can find them mounted on any number of rigs from Core Bore as well as many other rig manufacturers. Diamond Products is launching two new Core Bore motors which look to change the game in core rigs with the CB733 (3 speed, 115v) and CB744 (4 speed, 220V). (more…)

Ultimate Drilling Machine Core Bore Diamond Products Core Drill

For when you absolutely positively need the best possible option for coring concrete and don’t mind paying for it. This thing is self propelled, self contained (with water), self feeding, hydraulically controlled with an onboard tachometer and can core anything between ½” to 24” at the flick of a switch. Overkill for 99% of core drill users probably but we love to see it in action making the job of precisely drilling a dozen 24” holes look as easy as playing a game of Frogger. Diamond Products Core Drills are some of the best on the market and the “Ultimate Drilling Machine” 4250025 ($43K, Ohio Power Tool) is certainly the show piece that lives up to its name. See it in action in this video from the 2012 World of Concrete.
