Atlas Copco
West Springfield, Mass.

Masonry Magazine

Designed for precise and efficient diamond core drilling, Atlas Copco's powerful and low-vibration, hydraulic-powered core drills are ideal for the most difficult and demanding applications. The drills are developed for free-hand use, but they also can be mounted on standard rigs. While primarily intended for drilling in brickwork, rock and concrete, the core drills can be converted with a drill chuck mounting for use in wood and steel applications. Four models are available — the LCD 5, LCD 10, LCD 15 and LCD 24 — all of which weigh 18 pounds. Equipped with non-kickback operation, the drills provide added safety for working in confined areas. For more information, visit www.atlascopco.com.

Camas, Wash.

Masonry Magazine

Hotsy has introduced the new Super Skid HSS series of diesel-powered, hot-water pressure washers. What's unique about the Super Skid HSS series is the high gallons-per-minute (GPM) rate — 4.8 to 9.5 GPM of flow volume. All four models of the Super Skid HSS series use diesel (or fuel oil) to heat water and produce cleaning power ranging from 2,500 to 3,200 psi of water pressure. As with all of Hotsy industrial-grade pressure washers, these models come standard with the reliable triplex belt-driven, high-pressure pump that comes with an industry-leading, seven-year warranty. All models feature a 2,000-watt generator. For more information, call (800) 525-1976, or visit www.hotsy.com.

Other features include a reinforced, one-inch steel handle; joints lapped with continuous welds for extra strength; and 10-guage, heavy-duty steel. The box weighs 260 pounds.

Powers Fasteners Inc.
Brewster, N.Y.

Masonry Magazine

With the new Heli-Pin helical façade anchor from Powers Fasteners, contractors can stabilize both brick and masonry walls and make invisible repairs to masonry building façades. The corrosion-resistant, stainless steel anchor tie creates a reliable mechanical connection between the masonry façades and the underlying base material. The anchors can serve as reinforcement for ties that are corroded or missing, and can also be an integral part of new construction by being embedded into the mortar joints. They come in a variety of lengths and diameters, for a broad range of applications, and can be installed with no exposed hardware. For more information, visit Powers' website at www.powers.com.
