Welcome friends to another delicious Tool News Nirvana. This jam-packed episode is filled with sweet tools from some big names in tool technology – and your chance to win some of them. Milwaukee is giving away $5,000 worth of their M18 RedLithium 2.0 and XC 4.0 battery packs. And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, Home Fixated is giving away Milwaukee tools too. That’s right! We’re giving away the brand-spankin’ new M12 FUEL ½-in Drill Driver kit – $200 worth of tool hotness! Grab a bite of Powermatic’s new drill press, sprinkle in the 50th anniversary of Stanley’s iconic PowerLock tape measure and cram it all in with two Bosch demolition hammers and we’re already about to burst at the seams. So loosen your britches, put another notch in your belt and open wide for another big helping of Tool News Nirvana.
Bosch Brute Turbo Breaker Hammer and the SDS-max Demolition Hammer
Bosch delivers again with another demo hammer and breaker hammer. If you need to chisel, chip or break up concrete, stone, granite or other tough-to-chew material, the DH1020VC 25 lb. SDS-max looks like it’s ready to digest anything left on your plate. Use it vertically, horizontally and adjust the 12- position Vario-lock chisel into whatever position you need. It provides around 17 ft/lbs. of impact energy and retails for around $900.
If you’re really voracious and need to munch-out on some serious concrete, then the BH2770VCD Brute Turbo Kit is the tool for the job. With 43 ft/lbs. of impact energy and weighing in at only 63 pounds, this powerful, yet light demolition tool reminds us of a Japanese teenager at a hotdog eating contest – not much weight, but they can sure can eat up some stuff. The Brute Turbo Kit retails for about $1,800 so unless you’re really hungry to break up some concrete, then this mean machine might put a normal bank account on a sudden diet. Visit Bosch.com for more info on both of these plug-in demo tools.
Stanley PowerLock Turns 50
Before Stanley came out with their FatMax line of tape measures, the PowerLock tape measure used to rule the ruler roost. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this iconic tape ruler, Stanley has released a limited edition of five PowerLock tape measures to pay tribute to important highlights in the PowerLock’s history. From Stanley’s tribute to the NASA for being taken to the moon on the Apollo 11 lunar lander to a celebration of “Made in the USA” products (there’s even a replica of the original “Life Guard Yellow” design!) there’s a taste of every important era in the PowerLock’s long history. Take a look at all five of the limited edition PowerLock tape measures right here, take a step back in time and own the same tape measure good ole granddad had for just $9.99!
Powermatic PM2800B Drill Press
The new Powermatic PM2800B Drill Press takes the phrase “filling your pie hole” with a “little bit” to a whole new level. This 18” stationary drill press offers a big bowl full of features. With a 6-in. quill travel from a single turn of the handle, to powerful LED lights for a shadow-free work piece and twin lasers that guide the drill bit precisely where you want it, this Powermatic drill press looks a lot like a Ukrainian discotheque dance off contest / gypsy wedding reception. But don’t be fooled into complacency by the laser light show — it’s powerful enough for the biggest of woodworking shops, yet affordable enough ($1,399.99) for home DIY shops. Locate a Powermatic dealer right here and learn more about this “hungry for holes” stationary drill press.
