Positive Pressure Ventilators
General Equipment Co.'s GP21 Positive Pressure Ventilator borrows heavily from the highly successful positive pressure technology utilized by fire departments for smoke removal. The gas-powered GP21 is the first positive pressure ventilator designed specifically for construction-related applications.
Positive pressure technology involves the production of a high volume of air that is directed through an opening and into a job site. The high-static pressure capabilities of the unit's propellers create a pressure differential that channels the airstream through an available exit and into the atmosphere. Hazardous dusts, fumes and ambient temperature extremes, found in many construction-related activities, can be effectively minimized or eliminated using this method. Positive pressure ventilators can dramatically increase job site productivity and simplify compliance with OSHA atmospheric contamination regulations.
Powered by a 5-1/2 hp Honda gasoline engine, the model GP21 produces an airflow rate of 11,000 cfm with a static capacity of 5 inches or more. An electric powered model (EP17) is also available.

Chill-Its 6602 Cooling Towel
Ergodyne's Chill-Its 6602 Cooling Towel is a convenient, effective solution for those hot, sweaty days on the job. The advanced PVA material used in the towel allows it to hold water and stay cool for hours without feeling heavy and awkward. To achieve maximum cooling effects, dampen the towel to create a cooling aid significantly colder than the ambient air. Then, place the damp towel on the back of the neck for fast relief from the heat. This super-evaporative product also provides a quick solution for absorbing excess sweat.
Ergodyne recently introduced a sleek new look for the Chill-Its Cooling Towel. The updated tubular packaging provides an ideal location to store the cooling towel when not in use and keeps the towel clean, pliable and organized in any tool bag or around any jobsite.

Towable Mini-Excavator Line Launched
Extend Manufacturing introduces the new line of TMX Towable Mini-Excavators. Designed to provide exceptional power in a towable, easy-to-maneuver package, the TMX units offer a powerful excavating solution for a wide variety of markets, including rental, municipal, landscape and plumbing.
Featuring a quick-on and quick-off hitch system, the TMX units can be hooked behind a standard 1/2-ton pick-up, van or light-duty tow vehicle—saving fuel and hassle. No trailer is needed, and no CDL license is required—making it a very good option for do-it-yourselfers and small contractors. Lockout drive hubs enable towing at highway speeds of 65 mph.
Unlike conventional mini-excavators, TMX units eliminate tracks by utilizing zero-turn technology common on lawn mowers. The zero-turn rotation enables convenient access to tight locations and allows work on well-established lawns or greens by virtually eliminating the potential for turf damage. The drive tires are designed for mud terrain, ensuring performance and traction in demanding applications. Featuring a highly efficient orbital motor with tapered roller bearings on the output shaft, the wheel motors allow plenty of durability for challenging loads.
