New IRWIN SpeedHammer Power Masonry Drill Bits Power through Rebar-Reinforced Concrete

SDS-plus Masonry Drill Bits Feature Tip with Twice the Carbide for Longer Life and Durability

Rebar-reinforced concrete is found on most jobsites in North America, and professional tradesmen are often frustrated by damaged or broken masonry drill bits that result from hitting rebar while drilling in concrete – an all too common obstacle in construction work. IRWIN® Tools has developed the SpeedHammer Power SDS-plus® Masonry Bit, a powerful solution for drilling through concrete reinforced with rebar.

IRWIN’s SpeedHammer Power masonry drill bits are built to last. In fact, when drilling in rebar-reinforced concrete, they have twice the life of traditional masonry bits. With a patent-pending high-performance tip that’s manufactured with two times more carbide than traditional masonry bits, they are optimized for cutting through rebar at high speeds. IRWIN SpeedHammer Power masonry bits are manufactured with premium steel for improved core strength, maximum durability, and extended life. The flute is designed for faster, more efficient dust removal, and they have a specially-engineered groove design that minimizes friction, resulting in increased speed and longer life.

The need for stronger bits has also been driven by changes in power tool design. Power tools continue get more powerful, and with vibration levels being dampened and controlled more efficiently even more power can be put toward the hammering and drilling action, the bits need to be stronger so they can last longer and hold up in the toughest of environments.

IRWIN SpeedHammer Power SDS-plus masonry bits are available in 6-, 8-, and 12-inch lengths, with diameters ranging from 3/16 to 3/4 inches. They can be found at construction and industrial tool distributors throughout the USA and Canada.

New 4-Point Snap Blade from IRWIN Tools Doubles Number of Cuts

Blades Snap On The Score To Create Four Cutting Points

A dull utility blade on the job isn’t going to cut it – literally – and it creates frustration, unwanted delays, and loss of productivity for tradesmen. IRWIN® Tools has developed a new 4-Point Snap Blade that snaps on the score to create four cutting points, doubling the number of cuts made by standard carbon blades.

Combining the toughness of a traditional utility blade with the versatility of a snap blade, the new IRWIN 4-Point Snap Blade gives tradesmen instant access to a sharp new point without the hassle of having to constantly change blades. In addition, the four notches on the blade’s top edge allow for full blade extension, regardless of how many of the tips have been snapped off.

This new blade gives tradesmen the continual sharp edge they need for accuracy and productivity.
