Trio of awards for demolition hammer
03 June 2019
It’s a triple win for Makita’s Cordless Twin 18V (36V) 40mm SDS-MAX Rotary Demolition Hammer, with the product scooping Industry Product of the Year at the Hire Awards of Excellence, the Innovation Award at the Executive Hire Show Passionate Hire Awards and the Speedy Expo Product Award.
Launched in 2018, the Cordless Twin 18V (36V) 40mm SDS-MAX Rotary Demolition Hammer is the first cordless SDS-MAX Rotary Demolition Hammer to be introduced into the market by Makita. The tool offers a high power output, providing operators with an equivalent performance of a 40mm mains-powered machine.
The easy to use tool has also been designed with user safety in mind and is the first cordless SDS-MAX Rotary Demolition Hammer to benefit from the new Makita Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS). With AWS incorporated, the tool can be easily connected to compatible Makita dust extractors via a Bluetooth link – once the tool and dust extractor are paired, the extractor will automatically start when the tool is turned on (and will stop when the tool is no longer in use). Any dust produced by the tool is therefore removed from the air instantly, significantly reducing the chance of those onsite inhaling harmful dust.
This tool also includes Makita’s Anti-Vibration Technology. It is said to have a best in class vibration rating when hammer drilling into concrete at just 5.0m/s² for extended trigger-time. Operators benefit from increased productivity (as performance is smoother, fewer breaks are required) and safety as the chance of vibration-related illnesses, such as Vibration White Finger, is reduced.
Charles Shaw, hire & construction division manager at Makita says: “Being recognised by three such prestigious awards is testament to the innovative qualities of the Cordless Twin 18V (36V) 40mm SDS-MAX Rotary Demolition Hammer and we are delighted by the accolades.”
