Beta Max Inc.
Palm Bay, Fla.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Capable of traveling up to 400 feet high at a speed of 35 feet per minute, the new Max ClimberTM 7700 double-masted work platform is ideal for lightweight projects such as tuckpointing, caulking and restoration work. Unlike traditional platforms, the Max Climber 7700 can be simply installed, without requiring a forklift or a crane to set up. When taken apart, the mast sections are broken down into five-foot sections each weighing only 110 pounds. Additionally, it offers increased load capacity, stronger base units each using four 2.2 Kw motors and rugged aluminum deck sections. The platform measures 90 feet in length and 6.5 feet in width.

Hilti Inc.
Tulsa, Okla.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Designed to meet 2006 EPA emission requirements, the new Hilti DS-HS line of handheld gas saws deliver the power you need, when you need it. Due to a longer stroke on the piston, the DS-HS saws provide improved performance in deep cuts. Featuring a narrow body design, DS-HS saws also have Smart PowerTM, which provides flat torque power curve to help maintain constant blade speed under load. The line employs exhaust baffles with spark arrestor; sealed triple filtration system with metal main filter; digital coil; and adjustable, double reinforced guard. Solid steel flanges can be reversed for a one inch or 20 mm arbor. For more information, call (877) 881-8004, or visit www.hilti.com.

They include a Schedule 80 heating coil with stainless steel skin, 10-gauge engine mount, thermal rupture disk, belt-drive pump and welded roll cage that secures the heating coil and helps protect the machine. These models are rated for continuous use and are ideal for heavy duty, on-site cleaning where electricity is not available. For more information, call (800) 525-1976, or visit www.hotsy.com.

Metabo Corporation
West Chester, Pa.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Metabo Corporation has introduced a variable speed grinder with a wider speed range than similar grinders. The WE14-125 VS 5" angle grinder is ideal for both grinding and cutting stone when used at full speed and can also be dialed down to low speed for stone finishing and polishing. The new WE14-125 VS is powered by a 12-amp motor, with special winding protection that prevents damage from dust for longer motor life. The no-load disc speed is variable from 3,000 to 10,500 rpm. Vario Tacho Constamatic (VTC) electronics provide speed stabilization under load for efficient material removal. For more information, call (800) 638-2264, or visit www.metabousa.com.

Star Industries
Ft. Worth, Texas

New Products for Masonry Contractors

The new Star Industries half cubic yard self-dumping hopper is narrow enough to pass through a standard three-foot doorway. The hopper's heavy-duty construction ensures it can handle all types of construction refuse including broken-up brick, block and other masonry debris. Important safety features include a safety chain and grab hook to secure the hopper and keep it from sliding off the forks when traveling or dumping; a convenient rope release that allows the operator to dump the hopper from the forklift seat or from the ground, safely away from the dump area; and a hopper safety lock that prevents inadvertent dumping when traveling over rough terrain. Other sizes are also offered, and casters are available as an option. For more information, call (800) 541-1797, or visit www.starindustries.com.
