OZ Lifting Products davit crane wheel base
The new wheel base from OZ Lifting Products can be used with its full range of davit cranes up to 1,200 pound capacity. Made in the U.S., the wheelbase is adjustable and has four different length positions: 56.57 to 77.57 inches long, 32.44 inches wide and 36.87 inches high. It weighs 140 pounds when fully assembled (without a crane pedestal base), so the total weight will depend on the davit crane used. With durable steel construction and powder-coat finish, oversized casters make rolling the base and moving the crane easy. The floor anchoring system allows the davit to rotate 360 degrees, even when under load. 800-749-1064;

Blackline Safety G6 single-gas wearable detector
Blackline Safety has added new features and service plans to its G6 single-gas detector wearable device. G6 now features the same real-time connectivity as the company’s G7 product line. Additional new features include an emergency SOS that workers can trigger in critical situations to get help, and an expanded suite of data and reporting analytics. The device also supports indoor location technology. The company has introduced two new service plans, Protect and Protect Plus, which bundle new features to fit within any safety program. Supporting H2S, CO, O2 or SO2 gas detection, G6 alerts the person when they have come into contact with gas using attention-getting lights, sounds and vibrations, and sends immediate notifications to emergency contacts. In a situation where gas has rendered a worker unconscious, these notifications coupled with the new SOS functionality can be lifesaving both for the down worker and for others in the area. 877-869-7212;

McElroy TracStar iSeries
McElroy announced the addition of the TracStar 412i and TracStar 618i. Like their current Series 2 counterparts, the TracStar 412i is designed to fuse pipe sizes from 4-inch iron pipe size to 12-inch ductile iron pipe size, and the TracStar 618i fuses pipe from 6-inch IPS to 18-inch outside diameter. The TracStar 412i and 618i will incorporate the FusionGuide Control system seen on other TracStar iSeries models, providing operators with three levels of control during the fusion process. Each level has varying degrees of assistance, from manual control to fully automatic fusion. A new indexer keeps the heater and facer attached to the four jaw carriage, condensing the heater, facer and jaws into a single unit. Operators will be able to move the indexer side to side along a set of rails, allowing them to position the heater and facer between the carriage’s movable jaws as needed. 918-836-8611;
