Makita LXT brushless 9-inch power cutter
The 18V X2 (36V) LXT brushless 9-inch power cutter from Makita has the power to cut through concrete, masonry and metal materials with all the benefits and convenience of cordless operation. The power cutter is available as both a bare tool and a kit. The bare tool has a maximum cutting depth of 3 1/2 inches, which allows for single-pass cuts in many common materials, including standard residential 4-inch concrete slabs, common 3 1/2-inch paver/blocks, 3-inch SCH40 pipe and 3-inch conduit. Active Feedback-sensing Technology turns the motor off if rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to stop. An electric brake stops the wheel in 4 seconds or less allowing for faster re-positioning. 800-462-5482; www.makitausa.com.

Bonomi North America skid series industrial wafer ball valves
Bonomi’s new 723/724 skid series’ low torque design allows for the use of smaller, more compact actuators, saving space within the system while reducing materials, such as pipe supports and labor costs. They are available in stainless or carbon steel. The standard full-port ball provides the most efficient media flow and there is almost no pressure loss since the interior dimensions of the valve are equal to the interior dimensions of the pipe with no obstructions. The skid series is also available in 30- to 60-, 60- and 90-degree V-port configurations. The valves come in pneumatic- and electric-actuated packages and in deadman spring return handle assemblies. 704-412-9031; www.bonominorthamerica.com.
