The Demobag is a construction and demolition refuse bag capable of holding over 110 lb of waste. The 25-in. by 40-in., 38-gallon capacity tear-resistant bags are made of polywoven plastic polypropylene, which allows them to be reused multiple times. Since they are less likely to tear, Demobags are intended for applications where dust control and waste management are especially important, such as interior demolition and construction. While the bags can be punctured, their woven design prevents small holes from tearing open the bag. The bags can safety transport sharp nails, concrete and other materials not suitable for traditional plastic refuse bags.
The ZX75US-3 is an ultra-short compact excavator intended for applications that require fine control and maneuvering, such as utility work and other tightly controlled excavation. It is powered by a 54-hp Isuzu 4LE2X engine and a HIOS III hydraulic system. The standard 6-ft, 11-in. arm has a maximum digging reach of 22 ft, 8 in. and a maximum digging depth of 15 ft, 1 in. Rubber crawler belts can be added to avoid surface damage. Hitachi Construction & Mining; 800-675-8459; www.hitachiconstruction.com
he 0880-20 Wet/Dry Vacuum is able to run on all 18-Volt Milwaukee slide-on batteries, including NiCd and lithium-ion. It is capable of an 11-minute runtime and has a reusable wet/dry filter that does not need to be changed between wet and dry applications. It features a built-in blower port to allow the vacuum to double as a blower, and the 11⁄4-in.-dia hose allows standard vacuum attachments to be used. A 28-Volt model also is available. volution Paper-Free ASJ is a fiberglass pipe insulating product without any paper in its covering. As a result it is more resistant to moisture and is less likely to support mold growth. It is more durable than paper-based insulation, and can be easily washed. The insulation’s surface is able to accept both mastic and paint. The Paper-Free ASJ employs the SSL Positive Closure System, and does not require staples to secure the ends.. esigned for decking, the Gold Coat line of hangers, rafter ties, caps and bases are covered in an organic polymer coating to reduce the chance of the galvanized steel corroding. Chemical reactions between pressure-treated wood with chromated copper arsenate and zinc-coated steel connectors can accelerate corrosion. The manufacturer claims the organic polymer layer acts a barrier, extending the life of the connector.
