Makita has new demolition hammers
The Makita 12-pound AVT Demolition Hammer (HM0871C) and 23-pound AVT Demolition Hammer (HM1213C) accept SDS-MAX bits.
The 12 lb. Demolition Hammer delivers 8.6 ft.lb. of impact energy with a powerful 10 AMP motor. It weighs only 12.3 lbs., creating a compact solution for overhead applications. The 23 lb. AVT Demolition Hammer has a powerful 14 AMP motor that delivers 18.8 ft.lbs. of impact energy to handle the most demanding applications.
Both demolition hammers feature Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) and a vibration-absorbing rear handle to further reduce vibration. Makita has an AVT hammer in every major category, from 1” to 70 lb., giving users more options for hard-hitting performance with lower vibration.
Users can complete challenging jobs with constant speed control, which automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load, and a variable speed control dial that enables users to match speed to the application.
The demolition hammers have a "soft no-load" function which automatically reduces the speed of the motor when not in use, helping to increase tool life and performance.
The Makita motor is engineered with field core interlocking steel laminations, dual ball bearing armature and more copper commutator bars, increasing energy transfer efficiency for more power and longer tool life.
Other features include an L.E.D. power light to indicate switch failure or cord damage and an L.E.D service light that notifies the user that the brushes need to be replaced. An automatic brush cut-off protects the commutator from damage for longer tool life. The 12 bit angle settings allows the bit to be set to different positions for operator comfort.
