Combination tool

The TE Combihammer is designed for drilling holes for rebar dowels or anchor bolts in concrete, stone, and masonry, or for moderate chiseling on concrete and masonry. A 1050-watt motor drives the tool. Good balance and handling plus an ergonomic design reduce user fatigue and increase productivity. The company's TPS theft-prevention feature is standard. Hilti Inc. www.us.hilti.com..

Electronic hearing protection

The company's Com-655 electronic ear muff enables the wearer to have close-range communications in continuous-noise environments. Microphones on the outside listen to the environment and amplify weak sounds; a gain limiter suppresses sounds above 82 decibels. Also, frequencies outside the 400 to 4000 Hz range are not processed, improving the speech-to-noise ratio. Elvex Corp. www.elvex.com..

Rugged work boots

PowerWelt work boots are made of full-grain leather impregnated with polyurethane. The resulting footwear is highly resistant to abrasion, heat, oil, and water. The boots last longer and provide greater wearer comfort than competitive boots. The Timberland Co. www.timberland.com..

Rotating harness

The Revolution fall-protection harness features a rotary connection that rotates with the wearer's movement, providing greater comfort and mobility. Other features include a semi-flexible back shield that guards the wearer from snap hooks and self-retracting lifelines, one-hand adjustment of shoulder straps, and 7000-lb. tensile strength webbing. Bacou-Dalloz Group. www.bacou-dalloz.com..



Eye protection

Hi-Vizion 6900 safety glasses feature soft, padded brows and rubberized temple inserts for a secure fit and user comfort. The impact-resistant, polycarbonate lenses protect the wearer's eyes from 100% of harmful ultraviolet rays. The integral molded nose pads will not pull off or separate. An optional headband strap snaps on and off easily. Choose from three different lens varieties: clear, smoke, TrueView, and Clear Polynium Plus. H.L. Bouton Co. Inc. www.hlbouton.com..

Personal gas monitor

The X-am 200 personal gas monitor is a lightweight unit for testing oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and combustible gas. Three different warning types are built in: an audible multitone, visual 180-degree alarm, and a vibrating alert. The presence of two gas inlets allows the monitor to measure even if accidentally worn improperly. The flexible power supply lets it work off alkaline, NiMH, or T4 batteries.

Electronic excavator control

Controlled by electronic joysticks, the XL 5100-III excavator weighs 55,000 lbs. A redesigned counterweight helps reduce swing clearance by 18 inches. Bucket breakout force increased to 24,900 lbs while boom crowd force increased to 24,500 lbs. The Gradall Co. www.gradall.com..

Grade laser

The Spectra Precision GL412 and GL422 grade lasers perform level, grade, and vertical alignment with plumb functions, with no manual leveling. A continuous, self-leveled 360-degree laser reference that has a grade range of -10% to +15% for slope applications is sent over the entire work area. The two-way, full-function remote is effective up to 330 feet from the laser. Trimble. www.trimble.com..

Submerged membrane bioreactor module

PURON submerged membrane modules for membrane bioreactor wastewater treatment are designed for optimal solids management, high flow rate, and reliable operation. They use up to 50% less energy than similar systems. The product's air nozzle discharges from the center of each fiber bundle, at the base. Hollow-fiber membranes (measuring 2 mm in diameter, with pores less than 0.1 micrometer) block solids and particulates while withdrawing permeate from within. Koch Membrane Systems Inc. www.kochmembrane.com..
