M12 Heated Gear from Milwaukee Tool features heating technology that pairs with proprietary materials to enhance performance, durability and comfort. The 2016 line includes all-new designs across the entire range of gear, from jackets and hoodies to heavy-duty workwear.

Features include ToughShell stretch polyester for longer life and improved wind/water resistance and FreeFlex mobility enhancements, including adjustable cuffs and waist, a drop-tail extended back, and an integrated battery pocket – accessible from the outside of the jacket.

The jackets can provide up to eight hours of heat distributed across the chest, back and pockets for a full day of work on a single battery charge. Colors include black, gray, red with gray side panels and Realtree Xtra camo.  

The M12 heated hoodie lineup features reinforced front pocket edges for extended life. The fitted hood is designed to be worn under a hard hat, while the integrated battery pocket increases user comfort. A waffle-weave thermal lining works together with M12 heat technology to generate and keep heat around the chest and back for up to six hours. Colors include red, black and gray. 800/729-3878;

McElroy Acrobat fusion machine

The Acrobat 250 fusion machine from McElroy Manufacturing features a lighter-weight hydraulic power unit (HPU) that is easier to move around the job site and consumes less power than previous models. A heater and guide rod latching system eliminates the need to manually hold the heater in place during overhead fusions, reducing operator fatigue. An ergonomic handlebar design makes it easy to use from all angles, even overhead.  

“It’s exciting to design a new line of equipment that makes it easier for operators to work in challenging indoor environments where pipe is fused in very tight spaces,” says McElroy president Chip McElroy. 

Designed for fusing 2- to 10-inch polypropylene pipe, the Acrobat 250 enables operators to fuse pipe in the confines of the walls, ceilings and floors. To further reduce its footprint, the carriage can be configured from four to three jaws without tools. A single-size insert design can accommodate a variety of pipe sizes. Its narrow jaws allow fusions to most flanges and fittings. 918/836-8611;
