Metabo’s new rotary hammers designed to reduce fatigue

Metabo Corp. is now offering two ergonomically designed D-handle rotary hammers for use in a range of drilling and chiseling applications. The KHE-D24 and KHE-D28 extend the operators reach and reduce fatigue in both down-drilling and overhead drilling applications.

Ideal for use in through drilling and anchor setting as well as light chiseling in concrete, brick, block and stone, the KHE-D24 and KHE-D28 keep the operator’s hand and arm in alignment with the hole being drilled, maximizing drilling pressure, precision and operator control.

Both SDS Plus rotary hammers feature 12 selectable chisel positions for efficient and comfortable chipping, scaling, leveling, crack chasing or imbedding.

A large control knob on each tool allows easy change over from percussion with rotation, to rotation only and to chipping. The 360 degree adjustable side handle is rubber coated to dampen vibration and increase the grip, maximizing user comfort and control during operation.

The LongLife 5.6 A motor in the KHE-D24 provides a force of 2.2 joules at 4,600 blows per minute, a no-load rpm of 1,000 and 106 inch-pounds of torque. Drilling capacity is 1-inch in concrete using solid bits, 3 1/8-inch in brickwork using thin wall core bits, 1/2-inch in mild steel and 1 3/16-inch in softwood.

The LongLife 8.2 A motor in the KHE-D28 enables a force of 2.5 joules 4,600 blows per minute, a no-load rpm of 1,000 and 177 inch-pounds of torque. The tool has a drilling capacity of 1 1/8-inch in concrete using solid bits, 3 1/2-inch in brickwork using thin wall core bits, 1/2-inch in mild steel and 1 9/16-inch in softwood.
