Each glove comes with a thick, flexible foam padded back and a reinforced leather palm and stitching for maximum protection. It has a cotton lining to wick away moisture and a knit wrist to keep out debris. An Amerglo strip comes standard on all new styles, reflecting up to 300 ft for additional safety. New styles include a rugged suede cowhide design, a half-finger first finger and thumb combination and a new XXL size. VersaScreed front-mounted extension screed series is designed for paving subdivisions, county roads, parking lots and other commercial applications. It has 24-in. wide main and 8-in. extension screed bottoms for more consistent mat texture across the entire paving width. A wedge-shaped extension design automatically sheds asphalt when narrowing paving widths.The series includes designs for both 8-ft and 10-ft pavers. A revolutionary commercial tire technology that repairs tire punctures when they occur, helps reduce vehicle downtime and service calls. DuraSeal technology features a built-in-sealant that allows truck drivers to continue operating after a tire is punctured. It uses a gel-like, solvent-free compound built into the inner liner of the tire, which consistently and instantly seals punctures in the tread area. DuraSeal technology initially will be available in the new Unisteel G287 MSA and G288 MSA tires. Model VR-638 is a telescopic tool carrier that features a compact design, tight-turning radius and a low-mounted, three-section boom. It has been redesigned with a turbocharged 100-hp Perkins Tier 2 engine and hydrostatic transmission. Three steer modes allow the operator to choose from two-wheel, four-wheel coordinated or crab steer. Its small footprint permits the contractor to easily access and work in confined spaces. Also, a high-mounted operator station, low-mounted boom, and left-and right-side mirrors offer a clear view all around the machine. The VR-638 will be available in three versions�rental machines, deluxe open canopy units and an owner-operator version. New dual guard torch offers operator safety for oxy-fuel applications in the construction and aggregates industries. It is available in 75, 90 and 180� head angles and has a revolutionary in-head flash arrester coupled with three-tube construction that keeps gases separate until they mix in the tip. Heavy-wall stainless tubes enable high volume gas flow with the capacity to cut steel up to 24 in. thick.
