Bon's 2007 expanded product line of landscaping tools includes flexible and rigid paver restraints manufactured in both lightweight and pro-grade, heavy-duty PVC.

The new restraint system has a vertical height of 1-3/4 inches, suitable for most solid pavers and masonry units available. The paver restraints are manufactured in 7' 6" lengths and sold 12 pieces per box. Anchoring stakes and anchoring spikes are sold separately.

Developed in conjunction with the Porsche Design Group, the P'7911 Multihammer combines all the essential functions of a drill with the power of a pneumatic hammer and, with just one switch, conveniently alternates between any of the tool's five different functions. The tool's unique housing — made of genuine carbon fiber and aluminium — provides great rigidity and strength. With the handle mounted on top of the housing, the P'7911 is easy to operate because the forces acting are almost perfectly balanced. The new 705-watt, six-amp Multihammer offers 133 inch pounds of torque and 2.0 joules per blow. For more information, call (800) 638-2264, or visit www.metabousa.com.
