Built as a solution for all high roof cargo vans, the Max Rack 2.0 allows tradesmen easy access to ladders with the least amount of effort.

By reducing the sweep angle of the rack handle by 45 degrees, it’s now easier to operate the rack from the ground. The rack is made from military grade aluminum to eliminate any opportunity of rust or corrosion and designed to carry extension ladders and step ladders. The rack launches in April.
SHOCKFORCE NITE EYE TAPE MEASURE
With the input of industry tradesmen, Apex Tool Group developed its new

The dual-sided print combined with enhanced print size provide superior legibility for quicker measuring. The Nite Eye offers the same features but with a high visibility green-on-matte black blade. Shockforce tape measures are available in 16-ft, 25-ft, and 35-ft options.

The Tuffy Model 352 installs easily with the included mounting hardware that works in conjunction with the OEM hardware and does not require any drilling. The design allows for quick removal using the innovative mounting system that can only be accessed from inside the lockbox.
SUPER DIESEL ADDITIVE
As soon as an engine runs, combustion deposits are created and get stuck on the inside of the engine. However, the Super Diesel Additive by LIQUI MOLY puts a stop to this and restores the original performance of the engine. Super Diesel Additive cleans, increases the cetane number, and improves the ignition properties of a diesel fuel. It protects the entire fuel system from corrosion and wear-and-tear. “Regular use of Super Diesel Additive offers the best cleaning performance,” says David Kaiser, head of research and development, LIQUI MOLY. “This allows the engine to regain its original values—both in engine performance and consumption.”
