Braxton-Bragg Offers Bosch Angle GrinderBraxton-Bragg
Braxton-Bragg is now offering the Bosch 5-inch Angle Grinder. With its Bosch Constant-Response circuitry, it provides a soft-start; maintains constant speed under load, and provides overload protection. A reversed airflow pulls air into the rear of the grinder, and then expels it forward, keeping the internal motor cleared of stone debris that would have been pulled into air intake. It features the vibration control handle, which reduces vibration up to 60 percent, as well as the Kickback stop that shuts the tool down should the wheel get into a bind situation. Also featured is a 5/8- to 11-inch spindle for mounting a wide variety of accessories.
6260 LED Beacon RedesignECCO
With a new design, ECCO’s 6260 now features a lower profile lens that is only 4.9 inches high, three 3-watt LEDs, and Pulse8 flash operation (eight flashes per cycle, 70FPM), producing a warning signal ideally suited to industrial applications. The cost-effective unit has a wide operating range of 12 to 80V, making it the perfect light for use on electric vehicles. A long, trouble-free service life and low-amp-draw characteristics of LED technology make this an ideal replacement solution for rotating or strobe beacons. It’s available in amber only, with a choice of two bolt or 1/2-inch pipe mount, and it includes a five-year warranty.
K970 Power CutterHusqvarna Construction Products
Husqvarna Construction Products’ K970 is an innovative power cutter that is better able to facilitate the work of cutting professionals. The addition of the K970 completes Husqvarna’s new line of power cutters, which were unveiled at the World of Concrete 2010. The K970 replaces the K960 power cutter. In addition to advanced technical features, the K970 has outstanding ergonomics. Several improvements include a rear handle that has been equipped with a soft insert to ensure the operator has a better grip and hip support; a tank lid located to better accommodate filling; and a vibration dampening system that reduces operator fatigue and enables a longer cutting time. The K970 is well suited for cutting concrete and stone in reconstruction, renovation and new construction jobs.
