Stahlwille's premium design for confined spaces

MINI fine-tooth ratchets with a steel handle only nine centimetres long are the latest addition to the family of 80-tooth fine-tooth ratchets at Stahlwille.

Now reduced to take up minimum space, they allow access to fasteners where a thicker, longer handle would not have room to move. The ergonomically shaped, particularly slim handle lies securely in the hand and allows fatigue-free working.

The slim, space-saving design comes into its own where every millimetre counts. Use of this handy ratchet can be decisive when it is a question of whether panels and components have to be dismantled using clumsy, time-consuming methods or whether the fastener can be accessed directly and easily. Examples of typical applications can be found in servicing jobs on aircraft, cars and motorcycles, in many production processes and in repair work in the heating and sanitary sector.

As with the existing fine-tooth ratchets with two-component plastic handles, the ratchets with the steel handle provide a ratchet angle of 4.5 degrees. No less than eight teeth engage simultaneously. Despite the compact dimensions, this enables extremely smooth running and high power transmission without damaging the mechanical systems.

There are two versions of the Stahlwille mini fine-tooth ratchet with the steel handle. The 418QR has a QuickRelease safety lock that firmly locks insert and shell tools in place. They cannot inadvertently fall off inside inaccessible places. The technology still enables rapid tool changes. Thanks to its screwless design, it is also predestined for use in safety-critical and FOD sensitive areas. The 418B mini fine-tooth bit ratchet, which is otherwise identical, is intended for use with screwdriver bits.

Both mini fine-tooth ratchets are manufactured to the high precision standards for which Stahlwille is renowned. The drop-forged chrome vanadium shank is highly resilient and ensures a long service life. The fine internal mechanics are reliably protected from dust, dirt and moisture by a particularly resistant plastic cover.

Norton Clipper Power Float minimises lifetime costs for hire merchants

NORTON Clipper has launched its all new CT901 HP power float, offering high durability and versatility, in order to help hire merchants to minimise their costs for the lifetime of the power float.

A contractor’s job can vary from day-to-day, and ensuring that the right tools are available for the right job can take time – and cost. But when it comes to flooring, whatever the scale of a job, all concrete floors must be smoothed and finished before use.

In commercial settings with surface areas larger than 5,000 square feet, heavy duty, ride-on machinery is required to make the job as quick and painless as possible. But for the smaller, residential floors that make up the bulk of many contractor’s work, this can be overkill, with contractors preferring light weight, walk-behind machinery.

Now, with Norton Clipper’s latest product innovation, contractors no longer have to choose between the two. The CT901 HP four blade walk behind power float is specifically designed for professional contractors that work on finishing wet concrete floors in both residential and commercial buildings.

The diversity of the CT901 HP is particularly popular with contractors that don’t want to continuously hire both walk-behind and ride-on floats for every different scale of job. With plenty of excitement around the launch, Norton Clipper’s new power float is predicted to boost sales for hire merchants and stockists in this latter half of 2019.

‘Floats like a butterfly, finishes like a pro’, the CT901 HP power float is the durable heavyweight of choice among contractors, delivering ‘knockout’ smooth concrete. With a wide range of features, including hydraulic pitch control for the blades, the power float gives the operator a greater level of control than mechanical pitch systems and helps to achieve a perfect surface finish – making it a favourable purchase for contractors and a great core product for hire merchants.

As with all Norton Clipper products, this machine is manufactured using only the highest quality components and to rigorous standards of assembly. This ensures that the CT901 HP benefits from a long life and minimal requirement for maintenance, keeping product lifetime costs for both customers and merchants low.

Norton Clipper prioritises operator safety as well as great performance. By adding the robust steel frame and safety guard rings on the CT901 HP, any accidental contact between the user and the blades is prevented. The rings have been configured to guarantee the best possible visibility of the concrete surface at all times, while the mechanical blades also have a pitch control function to help improve overall accuracy. These features give the operator more control over the work to produce the ultimate smooth concrete finish.

With the CT901 HP, great performance comes as standard, but with the inclusion of the Deadman’s Handle, operator safety is also assured. The mechanism ensures that one of the operator’s hands must be on the handle at all times for the machine to function; if the operator releases his/her hand, the CT901 HP stops immediately.

Unveiled at the Bauma 2019 trade fair in April, the power float received a great reaction from both contractors and merchants, with the launch predicting sales to soar right through to 2020.

Morris Site Machinery's solar celebrations

ECO-conscious Morris Site Machinery is celebrating a hat trick for its SMC Solar Lighting Tower range with orders, awards and a production milestone.

At the Speedy Expo Supplier Awards, held at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 30 October, the SMC eco mobile lighting towers were crowned as brilliant sustainable lighting solutions in the prestigious Innovation Awards.

The company also celebrated a sizeable order from Speedy Hire, and at the same time the 100th new generation solar tower came off the production line confirming the company’s status as the first and still leading solar tower manufacturer in the UK.

The SMC TL55 Solar is impressing the industry as demand grows for a truly sustainable and low maintenance tower light. With both battery and mains supply, it has zero noise, emissions and offers flexible options for all site applications. It also has capacity to run indefinitely.

UK Sales Director Richard Denholm said: “What a week in this key lighting season for us! This kind of recognition and feedback drives us forward, inspiring our designers to continue to innovate so we bring to market practical and economical lighting products for a cleaner, greener future. Solar power does not release any harmful emissions or pollutants and is leading the renewable charge.

“This latest order from Speedy, the UK’s leading provider of tools and equipment hire and services, underlines the growing environmental awareness in the sectors we serve.”

Morris Site Machinery has refined its solar lighting offer since producing its first model, a fast road tow mobile lighting tower powered from four solar panels supplying power to lead acid batteries.

Improvements include 140 watt solar panels, higher output LEDs providing 31,200 lumens, PIR (Passive Infrared) sensors allowing the lights to only operate when required and LED dimming down to 10% of the power consumption extending the operating time.

A compact new model, the SMC TL60 Solar, has also been developed with solar panels that easily fold into transport mode allowing 30 units to fit on a Euro trailer.

TIMco unveils largest catalogue to date

The new catalogue is its largest and most comprehensive to date and is a further step towards the company becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for all its customers' product needs.

The 18th edition of the catalogue features more than 7,000 products with 300 new lines including additions to core TIMco screws, fasteners and fixings as well as extensions to the Addax Power Tool Accessories range including Impact Driver Bit Sets and PCD circular saw blades.

A new range of TIMco Addax Abrasives is showcased on pages 158 and 159, which consists of a wide variety of abrasive rolls, sheets, pads, discs and belts using premium quality abrasive grit. The whole range will be available from November and supported with a 16 Page Specialist Product Guide as well as an introductory video.

Simon Midwood, managing director of TIMco, commented: “We’re thrilled to launch our largest catalogue to date in order to meet the increasing demand for more product lines from our growing customer base and to further develop our strategy of becoming a ‘one-stop shop’ for Builder’s Merchants. The new catalogue features brand new products as well as extended lines and we can’t wait to hear what our customers think of the new and extended ranges.”

The catalogue is 100% recyclable and the paper stock is sourced from responsibly managed forests. The catalogue is also printed using vegetable-based inks, making it easier to remove during the recycling process. The production process also produces less CO2 and as a result is less harmful to both the environment and colleagues handling them.

Due to the continually expanding range, it has been a busy and exciting six months for TIMco, as the company is also completing the final phase of testing on its new website which will go live nationwide before Christmas.

Bosch Professional FlexiClick 12V – now with brushless motor

BOSCH Professional has boosted the power of its popular FlexiClick 12V cordless drill driver system by adding a brushless motor. The resulting Bosch GSR 12V-35 FC Professional Drill Driver is faster, stronger, more efficient and longer lasting, as well as maintenance-free.

With its upgraded specification, short length, low weight and range of adapters, this tool promises even greater effectiveness in a diversity of high-precision tasks – especially in tight spaces and hard-to-reach situations.

Top speed has been increased by 35% to 1,750 rpm, while maximum torque has been raised to a powerful 35 Nm for hard screwdriving applications and 20 Nm for soft. Increasing maximum drilling diameter in wood to 32 mm (up 70%) and maximum screw diameter to 8 mm has also expanded the tool’s job range. At the same time, Bosch Professional have reduced its length by 17 mm compared to the previous model.

Unique adaptability

The four adapters – bit holder (with bit locking), drill chuck, angle attachment and off-set angle attachment – make this the most versatile and compact system in the market. Together they enable a total of eight possible configurations.

Bosch Professional is the only manufacturer whose angle adapter can be combined and used with any of the other three. Also unique is the ability to adjust the angle and off-set adapters directly on the tool. Sixteen working positions can be set without having to detach the adapter from the drill driver. For professionals like carpenters, kitchen fitters, furniture makers, trade fair booth fitters and installers, this saves time and gives extra flexibility when working in confined areas.

Available now

The Bosch GSR 12V-35 FC Professional Drill Driver can be purchased from specialist retail outlets. Also available is a fixed-chuck drill driver, without adapters: the GSR 12V-35 Professional. Measuring 154 mm in length, and equipped with the same new brushless motor, this is the shortest and most powerful fixed-chuck drill driver in the 12V range. Offering the same levels of speed and torque as the FlexiClick model, its performance stands out from others – particularly in terms of screwdriving accuracy and drilling in metal or wood.
