Reinventing the feel: Zero Power, Full Force
Introducing "EASY!Force" the patent-packed concept’s most exciting innovation is the trigger, which is pushed into the handle with the ball of the hand. This change means when the trigger is operated, the recoil of the water jet automatically presses the trigger into the hand for effortless use. The reduced force prevents hand and finger strain and in turn muscle cramps; ideal for both those operating machines frequently and inexperienced hirers who haven’t the grip strength for prolonged use.

The two gas torches from Campingaz’s HYPERTORCH range are both suitable for skilled DIY and trade use – using a mixture of butane and propane gas to deliver enough heat for soldering copper pipes and removing paint etc. Campingaz claims that the mixture gives an extra 35% of heat energy compared to a single gas.
Both of the torches come in a simple and PZ version. The PZ version is lit using the piezo switch that provides the spark to light the gas, while the simple version will require a lighter.
