Norton Clipper launches mini masonry saw to boost summer sales

NORTON Clipper has introduced an all new masonry saw to its range, promoting safer and smarter working, in order to help distributors to boost sales throughout the summer months.

In 2016, over 30 million work days were lost in the UK due to musculoskeletal problems. With heavy and unequal lifting, incorrect posture stance, long hours, repetitive tasks and heavy tool belts affecting the health of builders and landscapers up and down the country, lower back pain is becoming a leading cause of lost workdays and disability in the UK.

Using a handheld saw for prolonged periods of time can quickly begin to take its toll on any tradesperson, and even a masonry saw can be problematic when lifting and transporting from one place to another. Plus, a handheld saw is often in use close to the body, in the direction of feet and legs, creating the very real possibility of serious injury if the user slips or accidently moves.

Norton Clipper’s CM35 mini masonry saw is ergonomically designed to be compact and lightweight, ideal for cutting at ground level, putting less pressure on the joints, muscles and back. This much needed solution is a must for merchants and stockists to promote in time for summer renovations.

Weighing in at just 40 kilograms and measuring around 30% smaller than other masonry saws in the Norton Clipper range, the CM35 is a modest, portable machine that performs just as well as its larger Norton Clipper counterparts.

With sleek dimensions of just 730mm x 286mm x 282mm, the CM35 Mini Clipper holds key advantages over more heavy-duty machines – allowing users to cut building materials closer to the point of installation, minimising any bending or lifting and therefore decreasing strain on the body, as well as improving efficiency and workloads on site.

The CM35 is electric and features a dust extraction port to minimise dust during use. Wet cutting is also an option with the Mini Clipper, as it is easily plugged into an external water supply.

As the machine has no legs – although wheels and legs can be added as additional accessories – the CM35 is an ideal choice for landscape gardeners and builders who prefer cutting at ground level.

Dave Thompson, National Sales Manager at Norton Clipper comments: “We saw a greatly successful debut at the Bauma 2019 exhibition where the CM35 mini masonry saw captured a lot of attention. We believe this excitement will continue throughout the year as merchants and retailers benefit from increased demand for the Mini Clipper.”

Ecoline+ hits the mark at Watford FC

PITCHMARK'S Ecoline+ has become the line marking paint of choice for FA Premier League club Watford FC.

The demand for using a premium paint at the Vicarage Road stadium led to trials last season, since when Pitchmark have been further developing Ecoline+. Watford FC became the first to use the improved formula at the opening game of the season against Brighton and Hove Albion in August this year.

In 2018 Scott Tingley, Head Groundsman at Watford FC, set out on what was originally a cost exercise and to see if they could establish the use of one paint for all marking.

“We were using top end paint for the stadium and bottom end for the other pitches,” he says, “we wanted to make it one paint but of course the cost had to be taken into account. We looked at Pitchmark and what we found different was their specialisation solely in line marking products.”

The club had been using Pitchmark’s Direct at the Watford FC training ground and academy, located at the University College London Union Shenley Sports grounds in St Albans. Home to five full-size and two goalkeeping/warmup natural grass training pitches as well as a full-size artificial turf training pitch and fourteen college/academy natural grass pitches, there’s a sizeable amount of line marking required. In the stadium only premium quality is acceptable. Ecoline+ offered the ideal all-round solution.  Ecoline+ is one of the most advanced, low volume, ready-to-use line marking paints available, especially when used in combination with Pitchmark’s Eco and Hybrid markers and special nozzles.

Scott says: “we trialled Ecoline+ and we had no issues, only benefits. We use a Pitchmark Hybrid marker which gives us the quality of a spray marker, without compromising the precision and quality of a transfer marker. Fixture dependent, we can mark up to three times a week and with the traditional wheel to wheel and four-wheel spray markers you lose ground cover and it’s too easy to transfer paint.”

The Pitchmark Hybrid overcomes these problems with a three-wheeled spray design, which is easily manoeuvred over wet lines. The cone nozzles give perfect deep leaf coverage, so you only need one pass.

“It’s easy to use, it feels like a normal wheel marker and you get premium quality.” Scott adds, “it’s quite complex though and needs looking after but if we have any issues Olly Boys, the Turfix rep, gives us second to none service and back-up.” (Turfix is Pitchmark’s recently formed sole UK distribution arm). Using advanced Ecoline+ Watford FC join the many examples of Ecoline+ premium line marking seen every week on TV from the best leagues in the world, including the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League.

Genny Hire buys ‘Rig-Safe’ Trime lighting towers

GENNY Hire Limited - the Aberdeen based hirer of power generation, lighting towers and associated equipment - has begun a process to upgrade its fleet of lighting towers with the purchase of ten X-ECO LED sets from Trime UK Limited.

These X-ECO LED units were fitted with Chalwyn valves and spark arresters making them ideally suited for use on refinery, petro-chemical sites and any other environments where 'rig-safe' specifications are a prerequisite.

Representatives from Genny Hire first saw the X-ECO LED at the Executive Hire Show Scotland and completed their research online. They then compared the Trime X-ECO LED sets with other models currently on the market. Genny Hire finally opted for the Trime product, citing the high specifications of the machine along with swift delivery times and the very prompt attention given by Andrew Owen, Trime UK’s northern sales manager.

Lorna Clark from Genny Hire said: “We aim to hire these lighting towers into refinery and petro-chemical sites. This is an area of our business we are seeking to develop and as the oil and gas sector market becomes busier in Aberdeen again, we will have the correct specification of machines readily available.”

She added: “We are very impressed with the service we have received from Trime. They handled the initial sales enquiry with enthusiasm and their service department came up to our depot to complete a training course. Spare parts are always available from stock, which means we can maintain our fleet at all times.”

The X-ECO LED has a number of environmental qualities and safety aspects. The set is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected. The complete unit features an external emergency stop button, a fully bunded fuel tank, four height adjustable stabilisers and site levels for guidance during deployment. The energy saving LED lamps will work for up to 2,000 hours without replacement.

Genny Hire was incorporated in December 2008. It rents generators, lighting towers and associated equipment throughout North East Scotland. Its services are readily available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week on a call out basis.

The Trime Group has over 50 years of experience in the development and marketing of environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the rail, off-shore, event, construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; its manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.

Bosch unveils new 18-volt rotary hammer

BOSCH Professional is extending its 18-volt product range and is launching the GBH 18V-26 D Professional – the first powerful cordless rotary hammer with D-handle.

The tool has an impact energy of 2.5 joules with a high impact rate of 4,350 beats per minute and can therefore drill just as fast as the corded GBH 2-26 Professional model from Bosch. The brushless motor of this cordless rotary hammer contributes to the efficiency of the tool. When combined with a 5.0 Ah battery, the GBH 18V-26 D Professional can drill around 110 holes (8 x 40 millimetres) in concrete. For particularly demanding drilling and chiselling applications, tradespeople can use the high-performance ProCORE18V battery. Regardless of which battery you use, the Bosch Professional 18 V system guarantees compatibility with new and existing power tools and chargers in this voltage class. 
 
The GBH 18V-26 D Professional is the world’s first cordless rotary hammer with Dhandle, offering tradespeople KickBack Control and providing a higher level of user protection. In the event of sudden and unpredictable rotation of the rotary hammer around the drilling axis ‒ which can occur if the drill becomes blocked in reinforced concrete ‒ the integrated sensor shuts off the motor in a fraction of a second. This prevents unexpected kickback and can therefore reduce the risk of injury. 
 
Better comfort - Vertical drilling and chiselling with less fatigue The GBH 18V-26 D Professional is optimised for vertical applications, thanks  to the D-handle, tradespeople can carry out drilling and chiselling tasks overhead or in the ground with less fatigue. The slimline design and low weight of just 2.6 kg allows them to save their energy. The D-shaped grip provides space for a large switch. Tradespeople can therefore work comfortably in various positions, whether this is removing stubborn tiles or making wall openings in narrow spaces.  
 
The GBH 18V-26 D Professional is particularly suitable for installers who perform tasks in various materials such as concrete, reinforced concrete, masonry, brickwork, wood and metal. Using the available SDS-plus adapter, you can also clamp round-shank drill bits or bit holders, so that you can drill in wood and masonry and drive in screws. An LED on the housing continuously lights up the working area – for even more comfort.  
 
The GBH 18V-26 D Professional cordless rotary hammer is part of the Bosch Professional 18V System. The Bosch Professional 18V System ensures a best-in-class experience for trade professionals. Since 2008 all batteries in the same voltage class are compatible with new and existing Bosch Professional tools. Tools are combined with the most powerful batteries and fastest charging technology for ultimate performance and the wide range of body only tools and separate batteries and chargers gives professionals maximum flexibility to only buy what they need. The Bosch Professional 12V System will follow the same principle in the next few months. 
 
The GBH 18V-26 D Professional cordless rotary hammer is available now.  These are the recommended retail prices excluding VAT. Subject to change.
