Ditch Witch®
Ditch Witch®  has introduce the All Terrain Air Hammer that is designed to work with Ditch Witch All Terrain directional drills to penetrate extremely hard rock with greater efficiency than mud motors or other types of air hammers. The company says one advantage the All Terrain Air Hammer has over its competitors is patented All Terrain technology, which enables the device to continuously drill as it is being steered, resulting in a faster, more efficient bore. Unlike other air hammers, the All Terrain Air Hammer requires no oiler or drilling mud, which saves on maintenance expense, and has a very low flow rate, so fluid costs are minimal.

Miller Electric Mfg. Co.
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. recently introduced Big Blue® 450 Duo CST, a dual-operator diesel engine-driven welding generator that features two CST 280 Stick/TIG inverters and 12,000 watts of continuous three-phase power in a single unit. Powered by Mitsubishi’s S4L2 4-cylinder diesel engine, the company says it provides increased productivity by allowing two welders to work off the same machine with two separate welding outputs. The machine is designed to offer superior performance on difficult Stick electrodes found in structural steel and fabrication applications, such as E6010, and excellent TIG performance for pipe fabrication and maintenance applications.

Swagelok has added five new tools to the company’s equipment product line to complement its orbital welding equipment and tubing offering. Designed for portability and ease of use, the expanded product selection includes four new tube facing tools and one cutting tool. The new tools include : TF16 – For preparation of thin-walled tubing from 1/8 to 1 inch OD. The TF16 is available in both electric and cordless versions. TF24 – For preparation of thin-walled tubing from 1/8 to 1 1/2 inch OD. TF40 – For preparation of thin-walled tubing from 1/4 to 2 ½-inch OD. Also available in both electric and cordless versions.

Weiler Corporation
Weiler Corporation’s 4-1/2-inch Roughneck is designed specifically for use on 4-1/2-inch mini-grinders.  Although 4-1/2-inch is the most popular size of small angle grinder, welders and fabricators using this tool have traditionally been limited to 4-inch diameter stringer bead wheels for surface preparation, root-pass weld cleaning and inter-pass weld cleaning. Weiler’s 4-1/2-inch brush is designed for the greatest cleaning action and longest product life on small angle grinders and features a high knot count and a short trim length.  This design results in a 35% improvement in cleaning action, up to 20% less wire loss and a 50% longer brush life than a comparable 4-inch stringer bead brush.

The new DL220 articulated wheel loader from Doosan is ideally sized to handle a wide range of material handling tasks, from loading and transporting sand and gravel, to snow and storm debris removal. Built around a Tier 3 compliant, 148-horsepower 6-cylinder Doosan DL06 diesel engine, the DL220 offers an operating weight of 27,205 pounds and a bucket capacity of 3 cubic yards. Dump height of 9 feet 4 inches and dump reach of 3 feet 6 inches make truck-loading easy. With the new DL220, the Doosan range of articulated wheel loaders now includes 10 models with bucket capacities from 2.0 to 6.8 cubic yards that are featured in the company’s Wheel Loader Product Guide.

Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies
Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies has introduced the new Durashell 370 service body to its extensive lineup of Durashell fiberglass composite utility bodies. The company says agencies and fleet managers are looking for a way to save costs on their van or SUV replacement.

What makes the Durashell 370 unique, is that there are no holes drilled anywhere in the bed of the truck as it uses 4 corner tie down clamps to lock the body in place by clamping under the bed rail.

Lincoln Electric
For fully automated pipe welding applications, Lincoln Electric has introduced Pipeliner® 81M, a gas-shielded, flux-cored (FCAW-G) wire designed for hot, fill and cap pass welding on up to X70 grade pipe. Pipeliner 81M provides optimal performance during automated pipe welding applications where consistent arc length is critical. E-Mail:
