Skid Steer: More Comfortable Cab

Deere has upgraded five small-frame skid steers and compact truck loaders in its G-Series. Enhancements to the cab include easier-to-clean windows, better pressurization and debris control, a more ergonomic redesign of the manual control grips and auxiliary hydraulic lines that run within the boom. Add-ons include a rear-view camera and Bluetooth radio. An integrated four-point-tie-down system allows for easier transport. Deere Construction & Forestry; 

Jobsite Box: Flexible Design

The Field Station jobsite box has been redesigned based on user feedback. Enhanced weather protection includes automotive-grade weather stripping, a gutter system to direct water away from the upper compartment and a sloped door on the bottom compartment to prevent water from pooling on door edges. The lower compartment has adjustable shelves. It comes with four-way skids for multidirectional lifting and transport and can also be moved by crane when outfitted with an optional Crane Lift Kit. A built-in electric cord pass-through grommet allows for inside-the-box power. KNAACK;

Sheet Sander: Cordless Power

The 20V MAX* XR cordless sander has a seven-speed dial to adjust speeds from 12,000 to 14,000 oscillations per minute. The sander is 5.3 in. by 6 in. by 4.6 in. and weighs 2.1 lb without the battery. Options include kits that come with a 2.0Ah or 5.0Ah battery, as well as a bare tool. A locking dust bag attaches to the built-in dust port to control dust levels and collect debris. DEWALT;

Handheld Puller: Designed To Ease Strain on User

The Greenlee G1 Versi-Tugger handheld puller has a tapered capstan that can take up to ½-in. rope. It has a 17-in. boom, adjustable to up to 10 ft. The puller’s handle is designed to distribute weight evenly for safe two-handed operation. To help with fatigue, a pivoting monopod attachment can lessen strain during prolonged usage. The puller’s five-position pulling head can attach to ½-in. and 4-in. conduits, allowing for five different angles from which to pull. Emerson;
