It started with the question of how to best carry slurry tanks, heavy saws, giant blades, and a myriad of concrete saw cutting paraphernalia and other stuff. The design received high praise at the national “World of Concrete” show in Las Vegas and quickly gained traction to become the industry-leading design for concrete saw cutters.

New Crash Tests Show Modest Speed Increases Can Have Deadly Consequences - IIHS News


Drivers want to save time, and local transportation agencies want to improve traffic flow, but at what cost? With posted speed limits increasing on roadways around the country, a vehicle’s ability to protect drivers in crashes is in doubt.

Small speed increases can have huge effects on crash outcomes, as shown in new crash tests by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Humanetics. The safety organizations conducted crashes at three different impact speeds (40, 50 and 56 mph). They found the slightly higher speeds were enough to increase the driver's risk of severe injury or death.
