Hilti North America has expanded its rotary and combination hammer tool portfolio with the next generation TE 70-ATC/AVR, a powerful SDS-Max combination hammer. The tool will help commercial contractors and tradespeople drill up to 40 percent faster in reinforced concrete.

Understanding the importance of worker safety on a construction jobsite, the SDS-Max combination hammer includes Hilti's exclusive Active Torque Control (ATC) technology, which stops the tool body from spinning uncontrollably if the drill bit jams. "We know how powerful Hilti tools are so, as we continue to deliver solutions to our customers, safety and productivity remain top of mind," said Eric Hollister, Senior Director of Electric Tools & Accessories at Hilti North America. "The tool provides users with the lowest vibration in its class while maintaining best-in-class performance. This will reduce the risk of potential injury during application and help increase daily productivity." 

The tool is also equipped with Hilti's Active Vibration Reduction (AVR), a technology that makes it less tiring to use. 

The TE 70-ATC/AVR is strong enough to take on challenging applications, without sacrificing performance or ergonomics. The SDS-Max combination hammer can be enhanced with Hilti's TE-YX bits and new TE-YPX flat and pointed chisels designed specifically to withstand the power of the new tool. The self-sharpening technology of the TE-YPX (SDS Max) chisels offer high break resistance, virtually no sticking or jamming, and less stopping to sharpen or change broken chisels. The SDS-Max combination hammer also comes with a universal detachable power cord that fits eight other Hilti tools. The detachable power cord feature makes for quick cord changes and reduces repair downtime caused by cut or frayed cords. It also includes a brushless motor, which will increase the tool's life and performance.
