New Products

Firestone Industrial Products
Indianapolis, Ind.

Masonry Magazine

Firestone Industrial Products has introduced its heavy-duty, Level-Rite air spring over damper for 1/2 -, 3/4- and one-ton 2001-2007 Chevrolet trucks. Using the Level-Rite air spring helps to level the front of the vehicle, improves ride characteristics, increases vehicle stability, and reduces suspension fatigue. Construction workers who load the back of their trucks with equipment may also use the system to help level the rear of their vehicles. The system includes everything required and utilizes factory holes for a "no drill," one-hour installation. The system also comes with a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty. For more information on product application, installation or the warranty, call (800) 888-0650 or visit www.ride-rite.com.

Gehl Company
West Bend, Wis.

Masonry Magazine

The new RS5-19 telescopic handler is a one-of-a-kind machine from Gehl. Designed with a compact frame and tight turning radius of 11 feet, it can easily maneuver in low buildings and confined job sites. The RS5-19 is a low-profile machine with an overall height of 6'4", making operating in buildings, under parking garages and in confined areas easy. The boom reaches to a height of 19'1", and features the same welded box-section design that is on the well-proven Gehl Dynalift® and RS Series telescopic handlers. For more information, call (800) 628-0491, or visit www.gehl.com.

The new Contractor Pro high-speed diamond blades from Hilti offer a faster cutting speed and up to 50 percent longer life than the current heavy-duty blades. Offered in three versions — general purpose segmented, general purpose turbo and asphalt segmented — the Contractor Pro blades are ideal for cutting of concrete block, clay brick and other masonry materials. Available standard with a 20-millimeter arbor and one-inch knockout, the blades can easily adapt to larger saws and, although formulated for dry use, they can also be used wet to reduce dust and noise. For more information, call (800) 879-8000, or visit www.us.hilti.com; from Canada, call (800) 363-4458, or visit www.ca.hilti.com.

LATICRETE International Inc.
Bethany, Conn.

Masonry Magazine

LATICRETE Hydro Ban is a thin, load-bearing waterproofing and anti-fracture membrane that is applied by paintbrush, roller or trowel. It does not require the use of fabric in the field, coves or corners — plus it bonds directly to drains and pipe penetrations allowing for increased productivity and faster installation time. LATICRETE Hydro Ban can be used for interior and exterior residential and commercial installations. Additionally, it allows for flood testing in only 24 hours, and is backed by a 10-year system warranty. For more information, call (800) 243-4788 ext. 235, or visit www.laticrete.com.

Metabo Corporation
West Chester, Pa.

Masonry Magazine

Metabo Corporation now offers a new, electronic six-inch angle grinder/cut-off machine with the proprietary Tacho-Constamatic (TC) speed stabilization for improved productivity. With TC electronics, the WE14-150 grinder can work at nearly 100 percent of the no-load speed (9,000 RPM) right up to the grinder's full-rated amp load (12 amps). The angle grinder/cut-off machine also is equipped with Metabo's "quick" wheel change system, which allows "tool-less" wheel changes; a safety clutch, which allows the operator to maintain control of the tool in the event of a jam; a Vibratech anti-vibration handle that reduces vibration by 60 percent; and overload protection, which shuts the tool down if overheating is detected. For more information, call (800) 638-2264, or visit www.metabousa.com.

Mustang Manufacturing Company Inc.
Owatonna, Minn.

Masonry Magazine

Mustang Manufacturing Company has introduced a new telescopic handler to its product line. With its 42-foot lift height, the Model 842 offers a little extra reach at a lower price point than the machine's big brother, the 844. Additionally, it brings the total of 8,000-pound machines in Mustang's product line to two. The new unit shares a boom design with the larger Mustang Deluxe Series of telehandlers — models 944 and 1155 — giving it extra durability. Operators will enjoy additional components, such as pilot-operated joystick controls, a tilt cylinder and an optional Work Platform System. For more information, visit www.mustangmfg.com.
