Roughneck Concrete Chisel

“The new Roughneck Concrete Chisel is a contractor grade product with a large striking cap and a 4mm pointed tip.”

It is designed specifically for breaking concrete slabs but can also be used as a manual drill in order to create holes in a variety of other materials and substrates.

To ensure it is highly fit for purpose and remains true to the Roughneck brand ethos of offering ‘Tough Tools for a Tough World’, the new Roughneck Concrete Chisel is drop forged from heat treated, tempered steel.

It is also black powder coated for extra durability and a better aesthetic finish
In addition, and to enhance user comfort and safety, it benefits from an ergonomic safety grip.

For easier product merchandising at the point of sale, it is also supplied on a plastic hang tag.

The launch of the new concrete chisel complements the existing chisel range available under the Roughneck brand. This includes a recently introduced Roughneck 18-inch Cold Chisel.

This chisel, which is especially useful for breaking cavity walls – such as when creating access points for services – is constructed using the same material and methods as the Roughneck Concrete Chisel.

LAX 300G Laser Measure

“Identifying laser markings when working in a brightly lit building can prove tricky, but not with the Stabila LAX 300G laser, now available from Hyde.”

With green laser lines for optimum visibility in bright indoor lighting conditions, the new cross line laser is a must for any tradesman’s tool bag.

In fact, Stabila Greenbeam technology means that the laser lines are four times more visible to the human eye than red lines, ensuring greater accuracy and fewer marking errors no matter what the conditions.

Thanks to high-performance optics, the green laser is focused into a fine, sharp line for precision every time, while the outstanding clarity of the lines enables accurate work to be carried out with a visible measuring range up to 30m.

The Stabila Greenbeam technology provides better visibility at a distance, making the LAX 300G far superior to conventional red lasers, even over longer distances.

The self-levelling line laser is the ideal tool for all interior construction tasks, from fitting and aligning electrical installations, drywall construction and marking out tile layouts, to levelling window heights, constructing kitchen cupboards and aligning worktops.

The versatile technology provides crossline, independent horizontal or vertical lines which covers almost the entire room, with plumb-line dots upwards and downwards.

Pendulum technology designed for the construction site ensures quick self-levelling for maximum efficiency, while the compact yet shock absorbent housing has an extendable foot for height adjustment for working directly on U-profiles.
