Reduce vibration without sacrificing power with Bosch’s Brute Model BH2760VC breaker hammer, which delivers up to 68 foot-pounds of impact energy. The BH2760VC provides 60 percent more impact energy than its predecessor, the 11304, while reducing vibration by up to 50 percent. Active Vibration Control technology creates a longer air cushion built in the hammer mechanism, and the unit also has shock absorbing handles. A Service Minder brush system automatically shuts the tool off when the hammer needs brush replacement, lubrication or preventive maintenance.

Increase productivity on surveying projects with Topcon’s RC-4 remote system, which features the company’s QuickLock technology to improve efficiencies in stakeout, topo, construction layout and as-built surveys. When QuickLock is activated, the robotic station detects the laser beam, rotates, acquires lock and begins tracking. One unit can operate up to six total stations, and the system has a working range of 1,310 feet.
