LOl, for years now the MH team has been having fun with memes, joking around with terrible installs, sharing tips and tricks from all over the globe or just my job sites.

It can be a lot of fun, we hope you will join us in 2021!

I’m a huge fan of what a simple laser can help me do on the job. I’ve been trying out different lasers for a couple years now. I continue to find uses for them that speed up my job. Often they lend a “third hand” when it comes to getting a measurement or laying out my piping straight and plumb.

I’ve shared a few pics of how I have used the Kapro cross-line green class II laser model# 862G 

The Kapro model is a AA battery powered laser so no special tool batteries are needed. The price point is about as low as it gets for green multi-line lasers at around $110. If you’re interested in buying you can use the link above.

The 862G comes with a fabric, velcro closure case and a velcro strap for affixing to different surfaces like a pipe or wall stud. The Kapro 862G also has a magnetic back plate for mounting to metal surfaces and a 1/4-20 thread tapping for tripod mounting.

You may have seen the launch of more new products by Milwaukee Tool in their unique PIPELINE video series recently but no doubt, if you’re on any social media you’ve seen the hype around those new tools.

The PACKOUT 2-Wheel Cart 48-22-8415 has been on my truck for a couple months now. We were chosen to receive early prototype/engineering samples because we are already using the PACKOUT system on our trucks. Beyond The Service’s John Thompson and I have been thoroughly impressed with the new hand truck from Milwaukee Tool. Below are a couple videos showing the PACKOUT 2-Wheel Cart in use along with the some photos and details.

The PACKOUT 2-Wheel Cart will be available in October, retail cost is set at $199.00 and will be sold anywhere you already buy Milwaukee Tools now. Some sites are taking pre-orders as well like here at Ohio Power Tool.
