Bosch DH507 12 lb. SDS-max Demo Hammer
If you’re sick (of your bathroom tile or old concrete) the Bosch DH507 12 lb. SDS-max Demo Hammer can cure your ills. With demo hammers becoming smaller and lighter all of the time, it’s no wonder Bosch came to the rescue with another lightweight yet powerful demolition hammer. Weighing in at just 12.4 pounds and delivering 5.6 ft. lbs. of impact, this tool is powerful enough to blast slots in concrete as well as small enough to fit in a small shower and remove old tiles. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself just how well this demo hammer does its job.
The ergonomic handle and lower motor placement provide the tool with the leverage you need to get any demolition job done with ease. You can find it in stores near you in May, or get the Bosch DH507 SDS-Max Demolition Hammer.
Dickies Tool Bags
You might have worn some of their sick duds before; Dickies has been making and selling work wear since 1922. From painter’s smocks to mechanics jumpsuits, Dickies has the work wear for just about every blue collar profession there is. So it’s no wonder with a background like that, that they’ve now expanded their product line to tool bags and pouches.
Coming to a store near you this summer, Dickies announces it will partner with JS Products Inc. to create a broad assortment of licensed painting tool bags, aprons and tool storage accessories. The core pieces of Dickies new tools will include utility pouches, rigs, belt systems, aprons, tool holsters, bucket organizers, utility sheaths and tool bags. Professional painters should expect plenty of accessories for painting supplies and tools. For more information on their new tool bags and accessories, take a look at Dickies website here or visit their partner, JS Products Inc. right here.
Bosch has delivered the cure for the common grinder with 11 new powerful, handheld grinders. Just when you thought that Bosch grinders were powerful enough, they went and added two more amps of gritty, grinding power.
Bosch took their grinders even further and changed the handle layout so that they can be held from multiple positions unlike the rear-grip only handles of their previous models. Expect to see four slide switch grinders and seven paddle switch grinders coming to a Bosch tool dealer in your area this May. Take a look at the video below and visit the Bosch Tools website here for more details on these “tool fever-inducing” grinders.
