Makita Adds Two New 1 Inch Rotary Hammers to Expanding AVT Line-Up

Makita expanded its line-up of concrete hammers with two new 1 Rotary Hammers: model HR2611F (Pistol-Grip), and model HR2621 (D-Handle). Both feature Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT®), an internal counterbalance system for significantly less vibration. The HR2611F and HR2621 are the latest additions to it’s line-up of concrete hammers equipped with AVT, including demolition hammers (70 lb., 42 lb., 27 lb.) and rotary hammers (2”, 1-3/4”, 1-9/16”, 1-1/4”). With the addition of the two new 1” AVT hammers, the company offers an AVT hammer solution in every hammer class. Enhanced Anti-Vibration Technology: Makita AVT is an internal counterbalance system engineered inside the tool that greatly reduces vibration by moving a counterweight in the opposite direction of the drive piston. The new HR2611F and HR2621 feature a 2-component AVT® system: With AVT, the same “wobble” bearing that moves the drive piston inside the tool also moves the counterweight (highlighted with arrow, right) in the opposite direction, thereby reducing vibration. An integrated damper spring at the base of the impact bolt is engineered to absorb impact vibrations from the drill bit. Less Vibration, Increased Performance and Versatility. The new HR2611F (7 AMP) and HR2621 (8 AMP) Rotary Hammers both deliver 2.9 Joules (2.1 ft.lbs.) of impact energy to handle the most demanding applications. Both hammers offer 3-mode operation for rotation only, hammering with rotation or chipping only for multiple applications. Modes can be easily changed with a recessed hammer-function selector, which is located below the gear housing for improved durability. Additional features in the HR2611F and HR2621 include sequential impact timing that delivers timed hammering during rotation to minimize overlapping bit impacts for up to 50% faster drilling. The variable speed trigger enables the user to match the speed to the application, and the 40 bit angle settings offer increased operating convenience. Both rotary hammers offer convenient one-handed bit changes for added convenience. The HR2621 has an ergonomic D-shaped handle with a rubberized soft grip for increased operator comfort, as well as a retractable tool hook to secure the tool to studs, ladders, and rails when not in use. The HR2611F has an LED light at the base of the tool’s pistol grip to illuminate the work surface in low-light conditions.
