Hilti’s DD 30-W core rig makes drilling through concrete with rebar much easier and quieter

Anyone who’s ever used a combi-hammer to drill through concrete with rebar knows what a tiring process it can be. Beyond the vibration traveling up the tool rattling most of the bones in your upper body while you push through the concrete, to get through the rebar you need to switch over to a drill to get through the rebar, and then back to the combi-hammer to complete the hole.

Designed to make the task of setting adhesive anchors in concrete with rebar much faster and quieter, Hilti has introduced the DD 30-W diamond coring rig. The company introduced the tool earlier this summer and demonstrated its capability at its annual Innovation media event in Dallas on Tuesday.

Chevy unveils Bison, a ruggedized Colorado ZR2 variant built with AEV

Since its return to the midsize pickup market with the 2015 model year Colorado, Chevrolet says the truck’s success has given the automaker a quarter of all midsize sales in that short period of time.

To their credit, Chevy hasn’t simply sat back and counted their money. There’s excitement outside the company for the Colorado, but there’s clearly a lot of internal excitement as well. To see it, you only need to look at the 2017 Colorado ZR2, unveiled about two years after the release of the revamped 2015 Colorado. It’s not quite a Raptor, but the ZR2 is a legit off-road performance package and provided some badly needed competition for Toyota’s Tacoma TRD Pro.
