Line of Powered WheelbarrowsCurb King
Brigham City, Utah
Curb King’s line of powered wheelbarrows is designed to assist anyone who has to move a heavy load. A powered wheelbarrow removes much of the work of pushing a wheelbarrow. Simply stand and operate a throttle; the wheelbarrow does the work. It allows you to climb over terrain that you could not attempt with a standard wheelbarrow. The curb king wheelbarrows comes in three configurations: a standard nonpowered configuration, a gas-powered, and an electric model.
Universal Line HolderUniversal Line Holder
The Universal Line Holder come packaged in pairs and will instantly fit four-, six-, eight-, 10-, and 12-inch blocks, as well as various types of bricks. No more loose lines, no adjusting cumbersome sliding guides, and no wing nuts to tighten. A tighter line makes a truer wall, no matter what type of block or brick you’re laying. The Universal Line Holder has a compact design and is built to last, made from a single piece of extruded aluminum.

Lunar Foam GlovesWest Chester Holdings
These Lunar Foam Nitrile palm-dip gloves from West Chester Holdings are ideal for all types of commercial and industrial applications. A white or salt-and-pepper nylon shell is dipped over the palm and fingertips with full-saddle coverage. This gives the gloves extra grip on wet or oily materials, and better surface adhesion on dry applications. Sizes from XS to XXL ensure a proper fit and optimal dexterity. Antibacterial surfactants prevent odors and bacteria from forming. The gloves are well suited for wet, oily and dry applications.
Diamond Lanyard with SRL ConnectorMSA
An SRL connector on MSA’s Diamond Lanyard allows users to transfer to/from the lanyard and SRL without having to disconnect from the back D-ring, maintaining 100 percent tie-off. It also enables an easier reach when connecting and disconnecting. Since the lanyard is always connected to the user, its chances of being misplaced or out of reach when needed are reduced. This lightweight unit is available in both single- and twin-leg configurations.
