AEG Deep Cut Circ Saw

When time is money, making fewer passes with a circ saw is a great time-saver. AEG’s Deep Cut Circ Saw has a depth of cut of 68mm, even when using the bigger 9.0Ah FORCE battery. This means you can cut more pieces at once, or cut through thicker pieces without having to flip the timber.

The high-performance brushless motor delivers a blade speed of 5600 rpm. The motor’s in-built Intelligent software ramps up the power when you need it most, so you can cut through thicker and harder timbers without jamming.

You can also make at 45-degree bevel cuts to 47mm deep. Features include a rafter hook and the ability to connect a jobsite vac to the dust port.

LEICA Rugby CLA Laser

The compact lens-based laser level (as produced by many tool manufacturers today) was patented in the late 1990s (reference Wikipedia).

Since then, there has been little advancement in almost 30 years. Leica Geosystems, the Swiss technological giant in surveying, has reshaped the horizon when it comes to rotary lasers with the new Leica Rugby CLA (Construction Laser Allrounder).

Leica CLA lasers have a unique capability to be upgraded through software, giving customers maximum flexibility and the ability to quickly adjust to the job’s needs. No more buying a new laser just because you find you needed more features.

Honda Generators

Honda engineers developed a revolutionary form of ‘inverter technology’ titled exactly that – by integrating parts from the engine and generator set, such as the combination flywheel/alternator.

This means you can operate a computer or other sensitive equipment from a remote location without the fear of interrupted service or damage to the equipment.

The addition of the Eco-Throttle™ System, which is exclusive to all Honda inverter models further enhances fuel economy, quiet operation and low emission levels.
