Faster and easier than any other Hawk on the market, ECOLE introduces the Speed Hawk. One side allows for tuck-pointing, stucco, plaster and etc. Then, simply spin around to the other side, which allows you to fit in those hard-to-get areas. With rounded edges and narrower base, this hawk can get in and out of areas that took two or four tools before. With an angled, round-edged front, running around stones into gaps is easy. With its long, flat back, spin it around, and long walls go fast, too.
Quick Response CodesEDCO - Equipment Development Company Inc.
EDCO now connects with customers using Quick Response Codes (QR codes). Knowing both mobile technology and QR code usage are rapidly expanding, EDCO incorporated the tool into print advertising and trade show displays, and, soon, they’ll be incorporated onto machines. Like their social media efforts EDCO’s goal is to provide customers with instant jobsite advice and problem-solving tips. The codes on EDCO machines will allow users to instantly access training videos, parts breakdowns, manuals and other helpful information while working. Rental stores can train customers via QR codes, before they leave the store.
