Hilti launches cordless combihammer
By Sarah Ann McCay06 February 2013
UK power tool manufacturer Hilti is claiming two world firsts with its newest line, the TE 30-A36 cordless combihammer. Not only is it the world’s first cordless combihammer but it is also powered by what Hilti claims is the world’s most powerful battery of its size.
The 36V 6.0ah lithium-ion battery is fully charged in 42 minutes and carries energy for the hammer to create more than 50 16 mm x 150 mm holes into concrete.
The TE 30-A36 offers a brushless motor to increase efficiency and delivers a single impact energy of 3.6 joules. Its full hammering frequency is 4,500 impacts per minute.
The new combihammer weighs 5.3 kg while its Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) system cuts tri-axial vibration to 11m/s². The unit is also equipped with Hilti’s Active Torque Control (ATC) technology, which ensures maximum safety should the tool bit become snagged.
Designed for the building construction, civil and structural steel trades Hilti’s aim was to create a cordless combihammer that could outperform corded alternatives, according to Rhys Harrington-Jones, Northern Europe product manager for light duty tools at Hilti.
"Add to this increased productivity, the mobility for serial drilling and corrective chiselling, plus the health and safety aspects of operating with a cordless tool, and we can clearly state that we have delivered a world first in the power tool market," he added.
