Wiha torch with LED, laser & UV light

Equipped with ingenious, practical functions – laser, UV light and a very strong LED lamp with two light levels – this new hand tool for users in trade and industry provides a variety of usage options and makes daily work easier in many respects.

This practical little tool contains special features such as a retaining clip, magnetic positioning mechanism, and easy positioning and transmission of measurements thanks to the swivelling light head and permanent laser function.

With a very strong LED lamp, this light is suitable for different work situations and light conditions thanks to the two distinct LED lighting levels at 280 lm and 100 lm, since dazzling light often reduces vision outside the light beam. The light includes a special swivelling L-shaped head, making it easier to point light in a required direction, while a retaining clip and a magnetic positioning mechanism also ensures hands can be free for other work.

The integrated laser function with a unique press of a button proves useful, providing detailed positioning and easy transmission of measurements for tasks such as ceiling installations. A switch-on interval of 2 seconds prevents the user from turning on the laser inadvertently.

Hitachi Cordless Nailers

For fast and efficient nail driving combined with easy maintenance, the new range of 18V cordless nailers have a unique air spring drive system that uses compressed air to drive each nail, causing less recoil, increased shooting speed, quicker response time between drives and better flush driving.

18 gauge straight brad nailer, NT1865DBSL/JM
16 gauge straight finish nailer and the NT1865DBAL/JM
15 gauge angled finish nailer are all powered by super efficient brushless motors, and are supplied with two lightweight 3.0Ah Lithium-ion batteries for increased run time, less maintenance and greater durability.

The NT1850DBSL/JM brad nailer can drive up to 1650 brads per charge while the NT1865DBSL/JM
18V straight finish nailer and NT1865DBAL/JM
18V angled fiinish nailer can drive up to 1500 and 1100 nails per charge respectively. A simple push button switches between sequential or bump fire mode.

All of these tougher, faster and more advanced nailers come with LED work light, low battery indicator and a handy adjustable joist hook.

A lock switch and a 30 minute automatic shutdown feature increase safety and promotes longer battery life. Adjustment of the drive depth and nose release, for quick and easy jam clearance, is simple and tool free.


Hilti Combihammers

Hilti has launched its next generation TE 50-AVR and TE 60-ATC/AVR Combihammers, which reduce vibration while simultaneously providing unparalleled performance in their respective tool classes.

Both new products are ideal for drilling, chiselling and coring in both concrete and masonry and have been fitted with detachable power supply cords to minimise downtime if cable damage occurs.

Weighing 6.1kg, the TE 50-AVR is one of the lightest combihammers in its class providing a drilling range of 16 to 32mm. Its new ergonomic shape and design allows increased airflow meaning significantly improved lifetime than comparable combihammers.

The Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) system also means the tool has the lowest triaxial vibration in the 5kg class at 9m/s², enabling it to be used for longer than normal before reaching exposure limit values (ELV).

For those looking for a more powerful tool with additional safety features, the highly versatile TE-60-ATC/AVR Combihammer has an optimum drilling range of 18 to 40mm and capacity for medium to heavy-duty chiselling.

Weighing 7.8kg, it provides outstanding handling and productivity while also outperforming competitor tools in its class, producing 7.8 joules of impact energy at 350 revolutions per minute.

Festool Cordless Sanders

Cordless but with maximum material removal and surface quality: Festool is “pulling the plug” and launching three new cordless sanders – in addition to the RTS, DTS and ETS corded compact sanders.

No heavy cable reels, no tedious searching for sockets, no messy cabling: Simply unpack and start sanding – this is the motto for the new RTSC, ETSC and DTSC cordless sanders from Festool. These three newcomers signal a paradigm shift in the cordless sander segment.

The new BP 18 Li 3.1 ERGO battery pack in combination with the brushless EC-TEC motor delivers a performance that you would expect from a mains-powered tool.

Added to this is the low weight: The cordless sanders themselves weigh just 1 kilogram and, with the plug-in long-life dust bag and battery attached, they still only weigh 1.5 kilograms.

Another big advantage of the cordless sanders is that their charging time is shorter than their running time. The BP 18 3.1 Li ERGO battery pack is back to full charge again in under half an hour – and the average battery life is significantly longer than 30 minutes.
