Alpha Professional Tools®
ALPHA PROFESSIONAL TOOLS®, Oakland, N.J., introduces the Alpha® AIR-830 and Air-850 pneumatic polishers with different maximum RPM to cover all fabrication needs. The AIR-830 has a maximum no-load RPM of 4,400 and the AIR-850 has 5,500. Both polishers feature a new motor with a 5 Hybrid composite vane design that outputs more power and last longer than their predecessors. The polishers come with new splash guard which blocks the splash while providing better visibility. The end case was also re-designed to improve the water and air control operation and minimize the risk of breakage. In addition, we added a silicon boot for the gear head, and water quick coupler with shut off valve, for your comfort and convenience. The Alpha® polishers always come with an enhanced spindle shaft and full-size wrenches for easy tool removal. The all-weather air and water hoses are 15ft. and rated for -40°F or +140°F.

ALPHA PROFESSIONAL TOOLS®, Oakland, N.J., introduces two new additions to is dust-collection line: the Ecoguard G7 and the Ecoguard W9. Both are designed for larger grinders, such as 7” and 9” models. The Alpha® Ecoguard G7 fits most 7” angle grinders and is built for heavy-duty applications. Features include a flexible head to allow for a natural grinding motion, and a positioning collar to make installation simple and quick. A clear cover provides superior visibility. The Ecoguard W9 extends the W Series to sizes up to 9”. Features include a multi-adapter system for easy installation, a front brush to contain dust when plunge-cutting, and support bars and wheels to reduce surface friction. The maximum cutting depth is 2 3/8” for use with most materials. It must be used with a vacuum or other dust-collection system.

IQ POWER TOOLS, Moreno Valley, Calif., introduces the iQ426 HEPA Dust Extraction Vacuum. Engineered to meet OSHA’s silica dust requirements for working in construction applications, the iQ426 offers four stages of filtration. The first stage captures larger particle sizes, while the second stage captures medium- to small-sized particles. The third stage filtration system captures the tiniest particles, while the fourth stage is HEPA. The first two stages utilize cyclonic filtration, keeping the particles from reaching the final two stages. Less than 1% of the dust reaches the filter, meaning the vacuum maintains optimum performance. The iQ426 also utilizes iQ’s Power Management System, offering the ability to control amp draw automatically by balancing the power between the power tool receptacle and the vacuum, minimizing tripped circuit breakers. The iQ426 features a 10-gallon or 50-lbs dust-containment tub with an optional dust-containment bag system, making dust disposal easy, efficient and safe. A heavy-duty cart maximizes jobsite portability.
