MAKITA EXPANDS AVT LINE-UP WITH NEW 2-INCH ROTARY HAMMER
HR5212C with enhanced AVT delivers faster drilling with significantly less vibration
La Mirada, CA – La Mirada, CA – Makita® has expanded its line-up of concrete hammers with a new 2″ AVT® Rotary Hammer that has up to 89% less vibration than the previous model, but with no compromise in impact energy. The new HR5212C is engineered with enhanced Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT®), a synchronized three-component system for significantly less vibration that results in a vibration rating of only 9m/s².
“Many rotary hammers have a detached, spring-loaded handle as their primary means of reducing vibration, which appear to be just updates to an existing tool having limited effect on vibration reduction,” said Livingston. “Compare this to our three-component AVT® system, which is advanced technology that is part of the overall engineering of the tool, isolating vibration not only at the rear handle but also at the side handle as well, an industry first. The result is industrial performance with significantly less vibration.”
More Power, Less Vibration
The new HR5212C 2″ AVT® Rotary Hammer has one the lowest vibration ratings in its class at only 9m/s². The powerful 5 AMP motor delivers 19 Joules (14 ft. lbs.) of impact energy for faster drilling. An added feature is the option of lock-on or trigger-activated in the “chipping only” mode, with a push button start/stop control right in front of the rear handle for more convenient operation.
Additional features include soft start for more control and greater accuracy, a torque-limiting clutch, and constant speed control that automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load. The HR5212C offers 2-mode operation for “chipping only” or “hammering with rotation”, as well as 24 bit angle settings and a one-touch sliding chuck for quick bit changes.
Ideal for Range of Concrete Applications
The new HR5212C is engineered for a range of concrete applications including drilling/coring through-holes for pipes, setting larger anchors, securing tilt-wall supports, small chipping applications, and more. It is ideal for a range of trades including masons, concrete contractors, demolition contractors, plumbers, electricians, sprinkler installers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class rotary hammer.
