iQ Power Tools at HNA 2015Joel Guth
It was another great year at the 2015 HNA Trade Show and GIE+Expo. We were proud to be a platinum sponsor again, and have an opportunity to donate our tools at various places throughout the show.
When we arrived, we quickly set up (1) iQ2000, (1) iQ1000, (2) iQ360x and (2) iQ912v to help everyone get their booths set up and ready for the show. Over 1000 cuts were made with our dry-cut masonry saws. Prior to our arrival, you could barely see the show grounds through all the dust. Our dust free products helped clear the air so we could see the beautiful, Kentucky weather.
During the HNA Installer Competition, all teams were given an iQ360x and an hour to build their project. This year’s winner, D and B, won $1000, their choice of an iQ360 14” masonry saw with accessories or the iQPC912 power cutter, and a Weber MT CF3 Pro forward plate compactor. Congratulations D and B!
In BIA’s training tent, Greg Ambrose, Pat McCrindle and others discussed, and even demonstrated, the iQ360x masonry saw and iQPC912v power cutter. Because our patented vacuum, filter and dust containment systems remove up to 99.5% of the dust from the air, they were able to use these tools indoors without creating dust or a slurry mess.
All in all, iQ Power Tools were used throughout the show to make over 7000 cuts. Both indoors and outside, they are the perfect solution for dust free, dry-cutting of brick, stone, pavers, concrete and asphalt.
With so much to do and see, we hope you had an opportunity to view our products in action and to drop by our booth to say hello. We had a great time showing our product and meeting so many key industry professionals. The feedback we got was invaluable. We are already integrating that information into exciting new products and accessories that will be available in the upcoming months.
