Tools and equipment products – April 2021


The latest generation of Duraspin Auto-Feed Screwdrivers are powered by a brushless motor, giving increased performance with reduced size, whilst the new cell technology in the 3.0 Ah Li-Ion battery, improves power, capacity, and ensures an extended life. In addition, users can go from collated to single screw driving in a matter of seconds with a simple twist, which releases the front part of the tool.


HiKOKI Power Tools UK has relaunched its KC18DBFL2 and KC18DPL 18V Brushless Twin Pack Kits with 36V Multi Volt batteries. When running at 36 Volts (V) the BSL36A18 Multi Volt batteries have a capacity of 2.5 Ampere-hours (Ah), and 5.0Ah at 18V. That means that the 36V battery packs have a capacity of more than 1,000 Watts. Intelligent connecting technology makes it possible for the battery pack to detect whether it is being used in an 18 Volt or a 36V device, and automatically adjusts the voltage.


Tested and certified SL/PZ and VOLTAGE TESTER models are amongst the Hultafors Tools’ Screwdriver range. An ergonomic design for comfort is joined by long rubber-coated, age-resistant handles that ensure grip for precision and maximum transmission of power. There’s over 80 SLOTTED, PHILIPS, POZIDRIV, TORX® STUBBY Screwdrivers, plus Hex Drivers and Bit Holders in the range.


Updated styles and designs have been added to the extensive range of Snickers Workwear Hi-Vis protective jackets, trousers, shorts, toolvests, shirts and fleeces – both for men and women. There’s a host of garments that will satisfy the specific requirements of Classes 1, 2 and 3 protection levels. All meet EN20471 standard for high visibility warning clothes and are windproof and water-repellent.


As part of its expanding outdoor equipment range, Makita has announced the release of a new Twin 18V (36V) LXT Brushless Linetrimmer and 36V LXT Brushless Blower. The former can reach fast cutting speeds of up to 6,500rpm and offers a cutting diameter of 350mm. Thanks to its Automatic Torque Drive Technology (ADT), speed and torque levels are automatically adjusted according to the density of weeds and the machine also features Active Feedback Sensing Technology (AFT) which shuts down the tool to protect the user if the rotation speed suddenly slows down.



There’s a long list of features often only found in a premium product with the Spectre Advanced Multi-Purpose Wood Screws. These include a Quick Start Type 17 slash point, a sawtooth to prevent splitting and a reamer to prevent jacking. The manufacturer’s screwdriver bits includes nut drivers, bit holders and bit sets covering Pozi, Torx and Philips in 25mm and 50mm lengths, whilst there’s also a selection of hole saws available.


Also referred to as Light Weight Stagings (LWS), the new WernerCo Lightweight Staging Youngman® Boards provide a safe and uninterrupted working platform. These lightweight units are made with aluminium box section stiles for added strength and durability, as well as being easy for tradesmen to transport between locations and set up. There’s a maximum load of 300kg and six sizes available, from 3m weighing just 15.7kg up to 6m weighing 35.6kg.


Builders can now access all the latest power tool news and information from the Bosch Professional Instagram channel. Not only that, this new resource will feature regular reviews and opinions, videos and information on its latest technologies, such as BITURBO. The channel will also offer UK tradespeople the chance to apply to become a tool tester themselves and, if they’re successful, they’ll get to keep the tool for free after.


Fit, freedom of movement and innovative fabrics are the focus for Snickers Workwear
