It uses 51-cfm air at 90 psi. The tool is ideal for onsite cutting of pipes, tanks, structural steel, and other materials. CS Unitec Inc. www.csunitec.com.
Hydraulic cut-off saws
The direct-drive design of these saws provides consistent speed and torque with reduced maintenance requirements as compared with belt-driven saws. Equipped with wheels and handles, their hydraulic power packs are small enough to transport by pickup truck and can be positioned up to 75 ft. away. The LS 14's 14-in. blade provides a 5.3-in. cutting depth, while the LS 16's 16-in. blade offers 6.3-in. cutting depth. Both are ideal for underwater repairs, demolition, and utility maintenance.

The 15-amp Super Sawzall reciprocating saw provides the highest overload protection in the industry. The gear-protecting clutch extends gear and motor life by absorbing sudden blade lockup, and the saw maintains constant speed and power under cutting load. In addition, it produces extremely low vibration levels, which permits working longer with less fatigue. Milwaukee Electric Tool. www.milwaukeetool.com.
The SE2800 screwdriver features a lightweight (2.64 lbs.), ergonomic design for fatigue-proof operation on jobs requiring extended use or awkward positions. The tool's 9½-in. length provides good balance in the hand, and a joist hanger keeps the tool within easy reach when working from a ladder or scaffold. The forward and reverse running motor features 106 in.-lbs. of torque and infinitely variable no-load speeds of up to 2,850 rpm. Metabo. www.metabousa.com.
Weighing less than a pound, the Tape Stop Power-Return Rule can be extended to 25 ft. and features a self-locking, nylon-coated, 1-in.-wide blade.
