Brokk has released the TE160 hydraulic drifter rock drill from TEI Rock Drills. When paired with the Brokk 100 or Brokk 160, the drill attachment drills in cramped spaces. The Brokk/TEI combination eliminates fatigue caused by operating the heavy handheld tools, improves overall drilling accuracy and promotes safety by allowing operators to stand farther from the drilling site. With a Brokk machine and the TE160 attachment, drilling to 20-foot depths, while standing well out of harm’s way, can be done consistently.

Anti-Vibe Hammers
Stanley introduces two new FATMAX Anti-Vibe 2-Piece Hammers, representing the newest generation of Anti-Vibe technology. Each hammer is constructed of a two-piece steel core to isolate vibration to the hammer head and reduce vibrations transferred to the user. Additionally, the two-piece design isolates more shock waves to the hammer’s head than a one-piece design. The steel core is wrapped in multiple layers of dampening materials, and a shock absorbing collar between the head and the handle further isolates vibrations to the head.
