Make lifting safer with Patterson Davit Cranes 

The Patterson Davit Crane is built for safer lifting with high-quality materials and an advanced brake that keeps loads in position without creeping. As with all Patterson products, the crane’s design was rigorously tested both digitally and physically to ensure safety and reliability for the entire life of the product, leading to fewer injuries and more productivity. Plus, the easy-to-assemble design and portable nature of the crane allows for service at multiple locations with a single piece of equipment, minimizing upfront investment. For over 160 years, Patterson has been a trusted supplier of products for lifting applications that deliver on the company’s promise of helping businesses run safer, easier and faster. The U.S.-made cranes are available in 1/2- and 1-ton capacities. 800-322-2018;

Superior Signal 5E FLEX battery-powered smoke blower   

Superior Signal’s new 5E FLEX battery-powered smoke blower is specifically designed for smoke testing, building, plumbing and sewer laterals. The 5E FLEX is compatible with leading 18- to 20-volt tool batteries and, utilizing a high-quality power adapter, the blower integrates seamlessly with an existing electric tool set. Additionally, it can run off any 12- to 24-volt power source — such as a car or truck battery — using the DC clips power adapter. The 5E FLEX gently pushes smoke through the system in only a few minutes and takes seconds to see results. Smoke testing is a cost-effective solution ideal for hard-to-find odors, leaks and other faults in commercial, residential and municipal facilities. While the 5E blower is popular for a variety of plumbing applications, it is also particularly useful in testing sewer laterals and can clearly illustrate where a fault or leak may occur on private property. U.S.-made, the 5E FLEX comes with an 8-foot industrial-grade hose. Used with Superior’s 1A or 2B smoke candles, it creates 4,000 or 8,000 cubic feet of smoke, respectively. Superior’s smoke candles are also sold in convenient SealPac cans which extend shelf life. 732-251-0800;

General Pipe Cleaners Model DRZ-PH drain cleaner

The powerful, portable Model DRZ-PH power drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners quickly and cleanly clears clogged sink, tub and laundry drains in 1 1/4- to 3-inch lines. Weighing only 30 pounds, the lightweight, compact machine features a variable-speed power cable feed for optimal control feeding and retrieving cable at up to 16 feet per minute. General’s 4-foot guide tube and pneumatic foot pedal substantially minimize operator contact with wet, spinning cable during drain cleaning, so hands and job sites stay clean and safe. The Model DRZ-PH can be operated either horizontally or vertically — it’s stable both ways. The silent motor won’t disturb others, and the convenient carry handle on top of the frame facilitates transport to and from jobs. The rust-resistant aluminum drum carries up to 50 feet of 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch, or 35 feet of 3/8-inch Flexicore wire rope center cable. 800-245-6200;
