DWA3HLDIR_A4DEWALT, maker of IMPACT READY® Accessories, continues to expand its already large offering of Fastening & Drilling Accessories with new IMPACT READY® Drill & Tap Accessories, Screw Lock Holder, Drive Guide and Masonry Accessories.

The primary features of the new IMPACT READY® Drill & Tap Accessories include a 3-in-1 drill, tap and countersink feature, a speed tip, and 1/4” material cut capacity. These provide ease of use, help to reduce walking, and application versatility for electricians, mechanical, glaziers, elevator installers and general contractors.

The new DEWALT IMPACT READY® Drive Guide is designed for use in an impact driver. Made with stainless steel parts, the hex-shank, 1.5” sleeve extension, and FlexTorq™ bit holder provide durability and help with fastener retention. This design is perfect for residential and commercial fastening applications.

The IMPACT READY® Screw Lock Holder offers 10X stronger magnetism than conventional holders and includes a quick release mechanism, floating ring magnet, and removable sleeve. All of these features are optimal in residential and commercial trades.

Finally, the new IMPACT READY® Masonry Accessories allow users to drill into brick and block with an impact driver. The one-piece solid core design removes material quickly as a result of their innovative flute design. They also feature a carbide tip to provide fast starts, ideal for residential construction applications.

DEWALT IMPACT READY® accessories are designed for use with the complete DEWALT line of Impact Drivers. They will be available where DEWALT products are sold this summer.

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 8.17.56 AMMessy paper trails can really slow you down, especially when you have a lot of jobsite areas to visit.  The new Hilti Laser range meter PD-C is here to help.  The PD-C captures and saves measurement data directly onto digital photographs taken by an integrated camera and laser module.  Users can document jobsites, add comments, and export data into a single report. Digitize the entire measurement process from capturing measurements, to adding context to these measurements, and finally connecting your device and sharing this valuable data – all with one easy-to-use tool.

Capture
Thanks to the PD-C’s camera targeting function, contractors can spot the laser target easily whether indoors or outdoors, under any light condition.  Leave guess-work behind with the PD-C’s time-saving intuitive guides and geometric calculations built into the software and easily visible on the large smartphone-like screen.  Smooth navigation and a strong Gorilla® Glass display ensures the PD-C is ready for use on any jobsite.

Context
The PD-C features 4GB of memory and can store over 3000 measurements with pictures.  Simply point, shoot and mark dimensions directly onto the photo.  One person is able to accurately measure heights to ceiling and long distances up to 656 ft.  The PD-C makes it easy to document where and what you measured so you can report issues, plan material orders, or collaborate more effectively.

Connect
Share project data in a single PDF or CVS report and transfer it conveniently via USB to any computer, or Bluetooth to Android devices.  Photos with measurements can be exported as a JPG file.  A clear digital document trail makes it easy to generate accurate estimates to help insure that the right amount of materials are purchased, or verify that work is completed to specification.

Hilti lasers are dedicated to precision accuracy yet even with built-in protection features, such instruments can be affected over time by everyday use. The PD-C is covered by Hilti’s Tool Warranty 20/2/1 which consists of 20 years of repair or replacement of defective parts; 2 year no cost repair including wear and tear; and a guaranteed 1-day in-and-out of our Repair Center on repairs.*  The PD-C is also backed by Hilti Calibration Service to provide reliability and accuracy. The PD-C will be calibrated, and adjusted if needed, with the calibration confirmed in writing for professional assurance.

2a71dac441c6361ad57355e2_560x560BOSTITCH® introduces the new Anti-Vibe® Hammer Tacker featuring Anti-Vibe® Technology providing a 16% longer life as compared to the Arrow® HTX50. The Anti-Vibe® handle grip helps reduce shock and vibration transmitted to the user, improving comfort and control. In addition to ease of operation and jobsite productivity, product reliability is paramount. The Hammer Tacker’s AntiJam™ loading mechanism facilitates easy staple loading and jam clearance resulting in flush drives and reduces misfires. Misfires clear themselves before jamming occurs when the staple pusher flexes. The bottom-load magazine is easy to load with one hand without the risk of losing or damaging the pusher.

Designed to make installation projects easy the Hammer Tacker features a slip-resistant grip to help the tool from sliding away when placed on sloped surfaces. The Hammer Tacker’s die-cast aluminum housing provides durability and lightweight functionality. The low handle activation force and low-impact shock and vibration combine to make the Anti-Vibe® Hammer Tacker an ideal tool for everyday projects and professional contractors alike.

The BOSTITCH® Anti-Vibe® Hammer Tacker–model BTHTHT550–is available in stores now for a retail of approximately $32.98. Arrow® is a registered trademark of Arrow Fastener Co.
