We round up some of the latest new products in and around the power tools & accessories category.

Drill bits for a dust-free worksite

Join the dust-free revolution with SpeedClean hammer-drill bits from Bosch. SpeedClean drill bits are used with an attachable dust extraction port for optimised dust extraction during the drilling process, resulting in 90% less inhalable dust, clean holes for a fast anchor setting and increased drilling speed. The SDS plus and SDS max Speed Clean Drill Bits are available as 4-cutter for bigger diameters and as 2-cutter for smaller diameters. All feature an accurate centring tip. The bits are intended for use on masonry, concrete and reinforced concrete and work in combination with industrial M-class vacuum cleaners.


Professional performance vacuums

Meeting WorkSafe New Zealand guidelines, Shop-Vac’s affordable new range is led by the L Class wet-and-dry vacuums that trap over 99% of the dust generated when connected to a power tool. The Shop-Vac Pro 20L, 40L, and 60L vacuum cleaners all feature a blower port that turns a vacuum into a powerful blower, plus their wet/dry cleaning power takes care of tough clean-up jobs. Shop-Vac Pros have power tool plug-in capacity for dustless drilling, sanding, and grinding, plus the auto start/stop function works with compatible power tools. These models are bagless but come with an optional collection bag, as well as a 2.4m x 32mm lock-on hose, two Posi-Lock metal wands, dual-surface nozzle, wet/dry nozzle, round brush, crevice tool, gulper nozzle, HEPA cartridge filter, and a tool adaptor.


Keep the power, lose the cord

The new 18V-216 Mitre Saw from Bosch delivers cordless flexibility with corded power. This 18V biturbo brushless tool offers exceptionally strong performance equal to corded 1600W mitre saws while providing completely cordless manoeuvrability and outstanding compactness. Powered by just one strong ProCORE18V battery (tool is compatible with all Bosch Professional batteries but the ProCORE range is recommended), this mitre saw is extremely lightweight, and an ergonomic design helps ensure optimal mobility. With a cutting depth of 70mm, the 18V-216 suits a wide range of professional applications.


Nail-busting is not a problem

The new Smart Purple series is a premium-quality set of blades that promises greater longevity when cutting through tough wood and nails. It’s a single blade type that covers most applications and is available in different widths and in both Universal and Starlock fitting types. So the age of a tradesperson’s tools won’t limit their choice of blades.

The Nail Buster Extreme has consistently been Smart Tool Group’s most popular general-purpose blade and the Purple series is basically a longer-lasting version in more sizes and fittings. It complements the Nail Buster range, catering for people who are prepared to pay 15% more for something more durable.


Paslode cordless framing nailer

If builders can’t find one tool that can do it all, they at least want a tool that can do more. That’s where Paslode steps in with a range of accessories that open the application scope door wide open. The Paslode framing nailer with No Mar tip can do cladding, decking and cosmetically important applications where a perfect timber finish is key. And the new Joltfast Cladding Guide allows timber weatherboards to be nailed up in almost half the time. No more hand hammering or compressors needed, just lightweight cordless performance.


Modular impact screwdriving sets

Build, create and keep your Bosch Impact tough bits organised with the range of modular screwdriver sets. The sets comprise 24, 44 or 48 pieces, and all feature an innovative system which allows users to customise configurations. Bosch screwdriver bits provide 10 times the lifespan over standard impact bits, thanks to their extended torsion zone, which helps absorb the high torque of the latest generation of high-torque impact drivers. Each set comes in a durable, lightweight tough case with a secure latch and rubber bumpers, and the high-visibility sleeve makes finding the correct bit easier than ever.
