High-performance Blades for AS170 Brick and Mortar SawArbortech
Arbortech’s high-performance blades are available in both the general purpose and plunge styles for its AS170 brick and mortar saw. The improved carbide formula and tooth design, and the higher temperature brazing, allow for the blades to aggressively cut hard mortar while allowing the blades to stay sharper for a longer period. The blades are 50 percent faster than standard blades, allowing for increased cutting speeds. The AS170 brick and mortar saw’s patented cutting technology uses a unique, orbital cutting motion with two forward-facing blades that combine to perform both a hammering and a cutting action, allowing the user to have clear visibility and the ability to accurately cut squarely and deeply.
KEEN Utility Footwear – the ‘Pittsburgh’KEEN
KEEN has introduced a new line of rugged utility footwear, including the “Pittsburgh” model boot. The boot has steel, toughness and a willingness to tackle a hard day’s work, just like the city of Pittsburgh. More than just footwear, this is a tool to get the job done right. With waterproof leather uppers and a KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane, this boot is built for the elements. Left and right asymmetrical steel toes, a removable metatomical footbed, and dual-density compression molded EVA and PU midsole provide out-of-the-box comfort and fend off fatigue, so you have something left in the tank even after your shift is through. Add a KEEN Key-Tech Full Length TPU interlocking torsion plate, an oil- and slipresistant, non-marking rubber outsole, and five-mm multi-directional lugs, and you get the platform for getting the job done.
