Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Sep 8, 2016 9:30:00 AM

You rely on your tools. You show up every day ready to work, and your tools should be ready too. That doesn’t mean you need the highest priced tools - high price is not always synonymous with high quality in the construction industry. Sometimes the less bells and whistles the better. Your tools should be made to last, here are 7 reasons why you should invest in high quality construction tools:

  1. Your tools are the lifeblood of your business. It’s simple. You need your tools to do your job. Without them, you’re out of a job.
  2. Construction jobs are tough on your tools. Building is demanding work. Every day your tools need to stand up to repetitive, high-impact tasks. Structures need to be built soundly, which means your fasteners and materials need to be applied with force and direction.

Wood 

Wood fences are the most popular type of fence and have been around the longest. The type of style and range of colors are unlimited, and wood is a renewable resource if it has been sustainably harvested. The initial cost of a wood fence is much less than vinyl or composite, and if well-constructed, a wood fence will last for many years. Wood fences do require more maintenance than other types of fences. They need to be rinsed off on a regular basis and will need to be repainted or stained every 3-4 years. The upkeep cost of a wood fence will likely make it equal to or more expensive than the other types of fences.

Latest trends in pneumatic tools, part II

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Jan 23, 2015 10:38:53 AM

Contractor Supply Magazine's Tom Hammel covered a hot list of growing trends in pneumatic tools for 2014, which continue to drive product development into 2015:


• As demand grows, shortages in skilled labor are increasing demand for tools that maximize productivity and efficiency to get more from smaller crews.

• Ease of use is more valuable than ever. Tools need to be designed for different experience and skill levels as new workers enter the labor pool.

• Reliable and consistent performance is a must, as crew chiefs have become frustrated with poor performance from poor quality tools coming in from Asia. Now that the market is rebounding, they are showing a willingness to invest in better quality.

• Low tool maintenance requirements, so tools can stay in production longer.

• Designs that reduce job site fatigue (low vibration, compact, light weight), for workers who work long hours due to small crew sizes.
