Corded Breaker: High Power, Low Vibration Corded Breaker: High Power, Low Vibration The TE 1500-AVR corded breaker is able to deliver 22 ft-lb of impact energy at up to 1,950 blows per minute. According to the manufacturer, the breaker’s sub-chassis anti-vibration system significantly reduces operator pulsation. The TE 1500-AVR is compatible with the Hilti TE DRS-B dust removal system and features three-chamber sealing to keep dust out of the tool. Hilti; 800-879-8000; www.us.hilti.com

Wind-Power Crane-Jib Attachment: Short Radius Wind-Power Crane-Jib Attachment: Short Radius The Manitowoc 16000 crawler crane now has an optional jib attachment that is specifically designed for use in wind-turbine construction. The attachment grants the crane enhanced lift ability within a short radius, important in wind-tower assembly. The device’s short length allows the crane to work when it is too windy—a common site condition in wind-turbine construction—for longer fixed or luffing jibs. The Manitowoc 16000 does not require any significant modification to the base crane. Manitowoc Cranes; 920-684-6621; www.manitowoc.com
