Echo on Pruning

When done properly, pruning eradicates any excess green tissue, which leads to an increase of the plant’s energy, ultimately resulting in higher growth. It’s a key component to increasing yields. The new ECHO HP-42 precision snips deliver the cutting and versatility needed in a wide range of cutting applications, season after season.

One of the most difficult parts of doing a new roof (there are so many to choose from) is cutting away the shingles that you run over the side of the drip edge as you make your way up the roof. Typically you do this with a combination of hook or straight blades, depending upon whether you’re cutting from the front or backside of the shingles. Ridgid’s new Pneumatic Roofing Cutter sets out to provide a way to use the air line you’ve already got run to the roof and simplify a job that was previously quite tedious and which required several blade changes to accomplish.
