DCH 300 Diamond Cutter
The Hilti DCH 300 Electric Diamond Cutter continues to set new standards in performance, safety and comfort, proving that cutting and grinding with an all-purpose tool isn’t the best choice for every application. With a 2.6 kilowatt motor, clever design and new cutting depth adjustment mechanism, customers are choosing the DCH 300 cutter because of its unrivalled reach and impressive cutting depth of 4.7 inches, beating competitive tools – conventional angle grinders – that both cut and grind but only reach depths of about 2.25 inches.

DM 340 115V Drill Motor”
The 115V model can supply enough power and torque to drill through heavily reinforced material for increased production rates. A water-cooled, three-speed gearbox makes it easy to set the optimum drilling speed for drill bits with diameters from two to 16 inches. This means you’ll always be operating at ideal performance. The motor has an ergonomically designed handle, and the quick disconnect feature on the motor and DS 450 drill stand make transportation and set up a snap. The controls are also designed and positioned to enhance ergonomics and facilitate operation.

Firestop Steel Angle for Deep Leg Track”
RectorSeal Corp., a manufacturer of quality firestop construction products, introduces Track-Safe, the construction industry's first deep-leg track firestop steel angle for dynamic head-of-wall joint fire and smoke protection in all commercial buildings. Track-Safe saves up to 50 percent of installation labor versus other firestop methods, because it is approved for installation on just one side of the wall assembly. Track-Safe is provided in 10-foot length of galvanized steel with 90-degree angle dimensions of 3/4 x 1.5 inches and a red coating making it easily identifiable for inspection.

Flameless Indirect Fired Heaters
Menomonee Falls, Wis.
Flameless Indirect Fired Heaters”
Wacker Neuson Climate Technology introduces the new HIF 690 flameless indirect-fired heaters for the 2013-2014 heating season. These Wacker Neuson heaters use a diesel engine to generate heat, so the flame is completely isolated from the surrounding environment. With Wacker Neuson flameless heater technology, cool ambient and/or recirculated air is drawn into the heater body and pulled through an exhaust heat exchanger and radiator, where it achieves significant heat gain. Air temperature increases further as it is drawn across the engine and heat plate.
