Masonry Magazine

Bon's 2007 expanded product line of landscape tools includes the new Dead Blow hammer, designed for leveling and aligning concrete masonry pavers. The Dead Blow hammer is entirely coated with a non-damaging, non-marking rubber shell and manufactured in two sizes — available in a three- or four-pound model. At 11 inches long, the hammer maneuvers easily to level wall units as well as pavers. For a heavier blow, contractors will prefer Bon's new nine- or 15-pound Paver Sledge equipped with a non-marking, replaceable nylon face.

Milwaukee, Wis.

Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduced a new 1/2" hammer-drill featuring Anti-Vibration System (AVS) technology for drilling in masonry, concrete, wood or metal. Powered by a nine-amp motor and dual torque/speed ranges, the new 5380-21 is ideal for any trade needing to set anchors in walls and ceilings. AVS technology and a soft grip handle significantly reduce vibration and fatigue, and two operating modes allow users to switch from hammer-drill mode to drill only. A variable-speed, two-finger trigger provides maximum speed control and the heavy-duty metal gear case protects the tool for extended life.

Available in 4-1/2-, five-, seven- and nine-inch diameters, SpeedWave diamond blades are the best solution for cutting masonry, cured and reinforced concrete, and roofing tile materials. The new wave-shaped ridge along both sides of each segment significantly reduces blade friction and drag. The design also helps clear dust faster for better overall performance. The world's first centralized cooling disc utilizes the blades rotation to draw in air and evenly cool the blade surface for longer life, as well as absorb vibration for a smoother cut.
