Glo-Kote is a thin-set overlayment that glows in the dark! It provides a light-reflected walking or decorative finish at 1/8-in. thickness over any cement-based structure. The blend of nonradioactive, photoluminescent aggregate polymers can be used for concrete repair and resurfacing and as a grout. It's charged from direct sunlight.

Levels with wave technology
With Wave-and-Read technology, the DL-500 digital levels series includes an additional survey style option that allows a rod person to wave the staff back and forth instead of keeping it plumb. When standing vertically, the reading becomes the minimum; as the staff is waved, the least value is read, reducing errors and operator eyestrain. Random-Bidirectional (RAB) code provides an optimum digital processing algorithm for staff reading. Invar-, fiberglass-, and aluminum-RAB-code staffs are available.

Deep-cutting power saw
A follow-up to the K760 model, the K760 Cut-n-Break features a low-emission X-Torq engine that produces 75% fewer emissions and lowers fuel consumption by 20%. Plus, Active Air Filtration extends filter life. The Cut-n-Break method achieves cutting up to 16 in. The first step is to make a cut up to 21/2-in. deep with twin 9-in. blades. The remaining core is then easily broken off using the accompanying breaking tool. Successive cuts are then made. Husqvarna Construction Prodcts www.husqvarnacp.com.

Powered by a 6-amp motor, each drywall gun has a large variable speed trigger with lock-in button, a comfortable grip, and a lightweight cast-aluminum housing. Other features include a LED light and metal-reinforced belt clip. Makita. www.makitatools.com.
Concrete mixer and pump ? combined!
The all-in-one MixerPump is a first-ever combined volumetric concrete mixer and concrete pump. For small jobs, mix fresh concrete and pump it wherever you want it to go. For large jobs, you can fill the bins of the mixer with a loader for continuous batching and pumping. The pump easily disconnects from, and reattaches to, the mixer.

The Jetting and Lubrication Pump allows guided boring machine users to maintain optimum production rates in variable soil conditions in one compact and easily transported unit. It features a 2,500-psi, high-pressure jetting pump and a 250-psi lubrication pump. The pump has independent hydrostatic flow controls and 325-gal. tanks to provide appropriate production capacity for powered cutter heads and cutter head with integral swivel requirements.
