Flap-Disc Abrasives: Redesigned for Higher Performance Flap-Disc Abrasives: Redesigned for Higher Performance DeWalt’s Extended-Performance Flap Discs are designed with a more durable cloth that has an improved grain and resin compared to previous DeWalt high-performance flap discs. The discs have been redesigned with a significantly larger surface area as well as a longer usage life. DeWalt now is offering Wearable Flap Discs for weld blending, material removal and welding preparation. The discs feature a backing that wears away as the disc is used, which allows for full access to the cloth. The removal rate is comparable to conventional grinding wheels. DeWalt; 800-433-9258;
Extra Pickup: Pallet Fork Attachments for Loaders Extra Pickup: Pallet Fork Attachments for Loaders New Holland Construction has introduced pallet-fork attachments specifically designed for use with its skid-steer and compact track loaders. The pallet-fork assemblies are available with either 48-in. or 42-in. tines, with either 5,500-lb or 4,000-lb-rated tine sets. For transporting loads, the frame’s mounting angle optimizes forward tilt for pickup and rollback. The attachment design features ample room between the cab and the load, giving the operator easy access. New Holland Construction; 888-365-6423;
Safety Glasses: Foam Band Cuts Down on Dust Safety Glasses: Foam Band Cuts Down on Dust StarLite FOAM Safety Eyewear brings some safety-goggle features to more comfortable safety glasses.

The scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens blocks more that 99.9% of UV-A, -B and -C light, and an anti-fog coating prevents fogging when moving between hot and cold environments. StarLite FOAM meets or exceeds the ANSI z87.1+ safety standard. Gateway Safety Inc.; 800-822-5347;

A high-efficiency motor and Hilti’s CPC battery-protection technology ensures a lasting charge during use. The TE 4-A18 also features a keyless “click” chuck for fast drill-bit changes and a variable-speed trigger for greater operator control. Hilti now is offering unlimited battery replacement for two years after the purchase of a TE-4-A18 Cordless Rotary Hammer. Hilti; 918-872-3265;
