CHIPS AWAY

CHIPPING HAMMER IS COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT

THE NEW BOSCH chipping hammer is a lightweight tool that easily removes concrete and other hard materials. The Bosch 11320VS SDS-plus will remove leftover concrete, plaster or tile, and it will lay open concrete reinforcements or remove adhesive. A 6.5-amp motor produces enough power to provide 3.2 ft.-lbs./impact. Weighing only 7.9 lbs., the tool offers a greater power-to-weight ratio than other tools in its class, according to Bosch. A variable-speed trigger provides control, and a recessed lock-on button gives extended use. A cushioned soft grip absorbs shock and vibration.

A SAFER LADDER

LADDER EXTENSION ALLOWS EASY EXIT

American Innovations offers a new ladder extension that lets you walk through the top of the ladder instead of stepping around it to exit. The extension eliminates the dangerous maneuver you need to make when using an extension ladder; the company reports that 80% of all falls on ladders are due to entering and exiting the top of the ladder.

The aluminum Walk-Through Railing System is a 36-in. extension for portable ladders. The railing extends beyond 36 in. It easily attaches to most extension ladders, requires no tools and weighs only 9 lbs.

Price: $325. Contact American Innovations, Dept. FIN, 1865 W. Wayzata Blvd., Minneapolis, MN 55356, 888/912-9888, visit www.ladderdolly.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin, or circle 189.

QUIET WELDING

LOW-SPEED WELDER PACKS POWER

Miller Electric introduces the Legend 302 gas-engine-driven welding generator that produces 5,500W of peak power and 5,000W of continuous power at 1,800 rpm and does it quietly. At 1,800 rpm, the Legend 302 creates only 66 dB of noise.

The welder also features improved arc performance with four preset DIG settings. The settings are soft arc and smooth 7018 performance, medium-soft driving arc, medium-stiff driving arc, and driving arc for applications such as pipe welding. Miller put the welder in a fully enclosed case for quieter operation and durability.
