“Bristling with features”

Makita 18v Brushless LXT Angle Grinders

New versions of the popular Makita 18v Brushless LXT angle grinders are simply bristling with features normally only found on premium mains machines. All models are now equipped with a variable speed control dial, allowing for greater control required for use with strip discs, flap discs and polishing applications. Soft start, battery fuel gauge, Active Feedback Sensing Technology (AFT) and Automatic Torque Drive Technology (ADT) are included on all models.

“Built for active professionals”

Solid Gear ‘One GTX’ Safety Shoe

The ONE GTX from Solid Gear is a safety shoe with seven integrated layers to deliver comfort and protection. It’s designed and built for active professionals who need a highly breathable, light and flexible safety shoe. With a GORE-TEX SURROUND membrane they’re fully breathable and ideal for warmer weather and combined indoor/outdoor activities.

The shoe’s stretchable upper is water-resistant whilst still providing breathability, fit and flexibility. What’s more, it has a honeycombed sole for enhanced grip and a composite midsole. It also has a stabilising heel support to minimise injuries from twisting.

“Conveniently operated with one hand”

Bosch Cordless Professional Router

The Bosch GKF 12V-8 Professional cordless edge router stands out thanks to its comfortable handling when working on edges and edge bands. The handle is narrow and ergonomic so that the cordless edge router can be conveniently operated with one hand. Weighing only 1.1 kg, the tool is incredibly light. The base plate is designed to have as much contact with the workpiece as possible. This combination ensures tilt-proof handling.

“Damage free installation of plated fittings”

Knipex Pliers Wrench ‘Bent’

For gripping, holding, pressing and bending with no damage to components and no unintentional shifting, welcome the Knipex Pliers Wrench ‘Bent’ to your toolbox. The smooth jaws of the Pliers and the zero backlash jaw pressure means damage free installation of plated fittings and no impairment to sensitive mechanisms. The 15° angled handle provides space for counter screw connections and working directly in front of a wall and the parallel jaws and lever transmission give a tight, solid grip.

“Adapted for faster and quieter operations”

Hilti Battery-Powered Fastening Tool

Hilti has launched the next generation of its award-winning BX 3 battery powered direct-fastening tool, which has been adapted for faster and quieter operations for the interior finishing trades. The propellant-free cordless tool weighs just 4kg and is powered by 22V batteries, allowing it to fix up to 800 nails into steel, concrete and wood on a single charge. The magazine – which contains 30 nails measuring up to 36 mm in length – gives both a visual and audible alert when empty. Its advancements deliver lower recoil and minimal noise, making it fully compliant with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance.
