Dust and Gore

Dewalt’s 20V MAX ½ Gallon Wet/Dry Hand Vacuum, the DCV517, uses the same GORE® HEPA filter as its DC515, making it the only vacuum in its class with both wet and dry cleaning capabilities. This new vacuum features a largest-in-class tank capacity at ½ gallon, allowing the user to vacuum more volume-per-tank than with a competitive unit. Large capacity is critical to vacuum performance as frequent tank empties lead to inefficiency on the jobsite. This vacuum is also the only in its class to have a flexible hose attachment. The DCV517 also has a gripped handle for comfort, and an easy-to-access, industrial-grade switch.

Cream of the Crop

True Effects™ Hand & Skin Shield™ provides fast, effective, long lasting barrier protection, including against paints and stains, for up to four hours plus. It’s proven to protect skin by forming a safe barrier against hundreds of skin irritants and natural agents. It revitalizes and conditions dry cracked hands and skin, even after repeated washings. It’s non-toxic, non-greasy, and helps guard against damage caused by constant exposure to moisture from repeated hand washing and cleaning in wet environments. Protects against most chemicals, such as dilute alkalis and acids, industrial detergents, tar, grease, inks, oils, caustic grime and adhesives.



Kick the Can

The Side Kick™ and Can Holster™, from 360 Products, are designed to work together. Manufactured exclusively in the U.S.A, the Side Kick paint can holder safely secures onto either side of an extension ladder and is meant to hold a standard one-gallon paint can in place and at arm’s reach. The Can Holster snaps onto the open can to prevent the paint from drying in the rim and around the bucket’s edge. It features a convenient brush well that holds up to a 3″ wet brush when not in use. The Side Kick fits on any aluminum extension ladder on either side and a safety pin safely locks it in place. The Holster drops and locks on top, reducing the chance for dropping tools.
