T The newest equipment and equipment add-ons for the hardscape installation industry range from machinery that helps prepare the ground to clever little devices that help get a job completed more efficiently and effectively. Following are some that came to the attention of LC/DBM in the past year. Right Avant Tecno's new multi function drive unit replaces their earlier auger drive unit. Auger drills can still be mounted on it as always, but thanks to the new design the multi function drive unit can also be fitted with various new attachments such as a concrete mixing drum. In addition, there is an angle adapter available that turns the drive unit 90 degrees to the the left. Above The recently introduced ES Housing Unit by Pave Tool Innovators is designed to hold the new ES Standard Power Pack, which is a lightweight 15-pound box that also comes in a remote controlled version, and five different sized pads to lift slabs all the way up to 2,400 pounds, either horizontally or vertically, with an excavator or fork- lift. The Standard Power Pack can run up to 8 hours on a single charge off the 20v 6aH battery. Two batteries and a one-hour quick charger are included. The power packs also work with the ES T-Handle to lift small 6" x 6" pavers, the Quick-E-Ergo Assist or the Quick-E-Ergo XL.
