Works indoors
The E-Truck from Muck-Truck is a new innovation for those looking for a product with all the strengths and features of other Muck-Truck models but also the capability to work in mines, buildings or other areas where both noise or fumes would have previously been a problem. Electric-powered wheelbarrows are gaining popularity with both residential and commercial users. The E-Truck is built in the U.K. by Muck-Truck. Designed from the ground up with premium components, these wheelbarrows are constructed to the highest standards without compromise. E-Truck carrying capacity is 550 pounds and can handle a 30-degree slope. It has a variable speed of zero to 3.5 miles per hour. The battery supports up to eight hours operating capacity and the machine is easy to manoeuver and control.

Compact hydrodemolition
Aquajet has introduced the Revojet 270 high-pressure pump. The Revojet is highly mobile and takes up less space than other high-pressure pumps, excelling in smaller-scale hydrodemolition projects. It’s designed to pair with Aquajet’s most compact hydrodemolition robots – the Aqua Cutter 410 and the Ergo system – for applications such as small parking garage renovation and industrial cleaning. The Revo control system makes the Revojet stand out on both efficiency and environmental protection. The system provides a wide range of functions for users to control and monitor the Revojet in a safe, user-friendly package. Its features include closed-loop pressure control or RPM control and smart pressure regulating that quickly finds the set pressure from the idle or auto-stop state. The Revojet also has a mode that flushes the hoses without any nozzle mounted, along with an RPM hold delay for hand lancing that minimizes delay when the high-pressure trigger is activated. Operators can easily set parameters on the graphic colour display with instructions available in multiple languages. Users can see all important information in real time or view a history of items such as the alarm list and trip meters for fuel consumption. The system also automatically tracks service schedules to minimize downtime. Aquajet put mobility at the forefront of the Revojet’s design. The trailer unit weighs 7,716 pounds, making it light enough to be towed with a pickup or large SUV. Additionally, a compact hydrodemolition robot, such as the Ergo, can be stowed in the same towing vehicle, providing simple transport between jobsites and quick setup without having to load the pump on a larger truck and trailer. A stationary Revojet unit is also available.


Superior dust capture
The iQMS362 16.5-inch dry-cut masonry saw with integrated dust control from Bartell Global and iQ Power Tools is designed for superior speed, accuracy, versatility, portability, power management and dust collection. It’s suitable for any rental house that serves masonry and hardscape professionals. The saw is designed to dry-cut a wide variety of masonry materials with speed and precision. It is easy to transport and runs off standard 120V power, making it ideal for setup and use anywhere. The integrated dust control system allows for safe and compliant dry cutting, indoors or out, without the hassle and mess that comes with cutting wet. Dust is captured within the blade guard, rear dust guard and the downdraft louvered table via a high-powered integrated vacuum system. The three-stage cyclonic filtration system captures heavy debris, fine particles, and super-fine particles. This all allows for up to 99.5 percent dust capture from the cut. The onboard dust collection chamber holds 40 pounds of debris.

Lighting nice to have
The BullVibe by MBW is a unique vibratory bull float attachment designed for concrete finishing with quality and durability in mind.
