MAKITA'S NEW 1-3/4" SDS-MAX ROTARY HAMMER ADDS TO MAKITA'S GROWING LINE OF HAMMERS EQUIPPED WITH AVT

January 22, 2008 - LA MIRADA, CA - Makita USA, Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories is proud to announce the launch a new addition to the company’s growing industrial hammer line, model HR4510C 1-3/4" SDS-MAX Rotary Hammer with AVT technology.  AVT is an exclusive counterbalance system engineered internally to reduce vibration up to three-times that of competitor products.
 
“This is a best-in-class rotary hammer featuring Anti-Vibration Technology,” said Anthony Corwin, Makita Product Manager, Commercial Products. “AVT reduces vibration, so more power in the motor is delivered to the tool bit, not the user. And it packs enough power for demolition, or working on a slab.” 
 
Model HR4510C is a versatile, high-powered rotary hammer for heavy-duty applications. The hammer features dual mode operation: hammering-with-rotation and hammering-only, with a built-in torque limiter that ensures stable torque control and disengages the motor should the bit bind or hit reinforcements.  In addition, the HR4510C is equipped with an L.E.D. light for greater visibility, and soft-start electronic control. The variable speed control reduces speed loss when working in heavy applications to ensure maximum productivity. The 13.5 AMP motor provides more power (130 - 280 RPM, and 1,250 - 2,750 blows-per-minute) for a range of applications. 
 
The HR4510C weighs 18.5 pounds and has two options of side handles available (straight and D-shaped), both with rubberized grips; and a large rubberized rear handle; all of which contribute to the overall comfort of the tool. The one-touch sliding chuck allows for quick bit changes increasing end-user productivity.  
 
The HR4510C is a versatile rotary hammer for masons, remodelers, electricians, plumbers, demolition contractors, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality rotary hammer. The tool is built for drilling large anchor holes and breaking concrete and other masonry materials, as well as drilling in wood and metal, and core drilling.

About Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT)
Makita has adapted the science of earthquake engineering into power tools with Makita’s Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT). AVT is an exclusive counterbalance design that provides the professional a power tool solution with up to three-times less vibration, less noise and more efficient power than the competition. AVT involves engineering where a mechanical damper, effectively a counter balance weight, provides an equal and opposite force that puts a mass directly opposite the point at which the striker bolt delivers the impact. As vibration is eliminated power is efficiently increased, allowing more of the generated energy in the motor to be delivered to the tool bit.
