On small jobs, the more versatile your machinery, the better. Budgets are much tighter, so there’s no room for error. We’ve seen some very interesting attachments for excavators, such as this one that turns the bucket into a hammer with the switch of a button, but we’ve never seen a machine quite as versatile as the Diverto QS100.
11 years in the making, the Diverto QS100 combines the functionality of an excavator, loader, tractor, and mower into one compact machine. With many different attachments available, this one relatively small machine can handle just about every job you can throw at it. Dutch company, Diverto, prides itself on quality and making sure all 4 of the uses of the machine work together seamlessly. Standing 9 feet tall, with a 7 foot cab length (without attachments), it’s slightly shorter, but taller than a standard skid steer. The versatile machine also boasts top speeds of roughly 25mph (40kmh), which is over twice the speed of skid steers, which top out around 11mph and still faster than compact wheel loaders, which top out around 22mph.
The Diverto QS100 also has the ability to be controlled by a remote control. The remote control does not have limited functionality either, all functions are identical to the cabin joystick.
As for the specs, the machine, which has an operating weight of 14,000 pound (6350kg), is powered by a John Deere PowerTech 4045HFC92 engine and has a max lift capacity of close to 10,000 pounds (4525 kg). For more information regarding abilities and specifications, see Diverto’s brochure, by clicking here. Dealers are only currently available in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, and Switzerland, but, have no fear, it was only recently released in 2015, so expansion is a sure possibility if you’re interested in getting one.

For the past few years, tool manufacturers have been making cordless tools possible that no one thought could be done. We now have battery powered table saws, 12” miter saws, even battery powered pipe threaders. But one thing that no one has done yet, until now, is a battery powered worm drive circular saw.

For years, Milwaukee has made it very clear that they will continue to keep their M18 platform as their core system. Cordless tool users spend a ton of money into batteries these days, and the company’s goal is to not force them into investing into a new cordless system. That means that Milwaukee has to come up with innovative ways to provide the tools users want while being limited to 18 volts.
In 2015, Milwaukee announced the release of their digital tool tracking platform: ONE-KEY. The company has since released dozens of ONE-KEY enabled tools to manage them using Bluetooth, an inventory management system, and tool reporting functionality. Yesterday, the company announced several enhancements to the platforms inventory and reporting interfaces.

The phone is currently available on both the Sprint and Verizon Networks and I was recently able to test out the phone to get some better insight into how it operates.
