The new Bobcat T320 compact track loader features a significantly larger engine and a 3,200-pound rated operating capacity, making it the largest compact track loader manufactured by Bobcat. Its 92-horsepower, liquid-cooled diesel engine means it has more horsepower to perform better in nearly every application. In addition, the track system provides extra traction, reduced ground pressure and low ground disturbance, with superior flotation to extend contractors' work seasons. The machine's 18-inch-wide rubber tracks produce just 4.2 psi of ground pressure. The T320 has a lift height of 10 feet 9 inches that follows a vertical lift path, allowing it to load and unload easily. For more information, visit www.bobcat.com.

DeWALT engineered the DC415KL cut-off tool with a 36-volt battery, providing professional users with increased levels of power and runtime, while maintaining a similar weight to corded and cordless cut-off tools. The tool is ideal for construction, maintenance and repair operations. A Quick-Change wheel release system allows users to easily remove wheels without using a wrench, and a keyless adjustable guard enables users to quickly adjust the guard without having to use a tool. A durable jam-pot, low-profile gear case provides precise gear alignments for a smoother, quieter transmission and enables users to easily access tight spaces.

QUIKRETE's PowerLoc jointing sand offers professionals a cost-efficient and functional material for retaining the beautiful appearance of paver surfaces. The jointing sand is polymer-modified and specially designed for sweeping into paving joints or replacing existing joints. Once placed and dampened, the non-staining sand hardens to lock pavers in place. The resulting surface is resistant to erosion, weed growth and insects. QUIKRETE's PowerLoc jointing sand is sold in 50-pound bags and is priced to sell for 30 percent less than competitive jointing sands. For more information, visit www.quikrete.com.
