  • Full hammering frequency: 2830 impacts/minute
  • Triaxial vibration value for hammer drilling into concrete: 8.3 m/s²
  • Optimum Hammer drilling range: 25/32 – 2-5/32 in
  • Functionality: Active Torque Control (ATC), Active Vibration Reduction (AVR), Detachable Power Cord Chiseling, Power Reduction

“We know how powerful Hilti tools are so, as we continue to deliver solutions to our customers, safety and productivity remain top of mind,” said Eric Hollister, Senior Director of Electric Tools & Accessories at Hilti North America. "The tool provides users with the lowest vibration in its class while maintaining best-in-class performance. This will reduce the risk of potential injury during application and help increase daily productivity.” The tool is also equipped with Hilti’s Active Vibration Reduction (AVR), a technology that makes it less tiring to use. 

The TE 70-ATC/AVR is strong enough to take on the most challenging applications, without sacrificing performance or ergonomics. With the fourth generation, Hilti customers will experience a premium performance – a hard-hitting, faster drilling tool that will help get the job done quicker than ever before. Users will unlock the full power of the SDS-Max combination hammer with the optimized durability and exceptional strength of Hilti’s TE-YX bits and new TE-YPX flat and pointed chisels designed specifically to withstand the power of this new tool. The state-of-the-art wave design, polygon construction, and self-sharpening technology of the TE-YPX (SDS Max) chisels offer high break resistance, virtually no sticking or jamming, and less stopping to sharpen or change broken chisels.

The SDS-Max combination hammer also comes with a universal detachable power cord that fits eight other Hilti tools. The detachable power cord feature makes for quick cord changes and reduces repair downtime caused by cut or frayed cords. It also includes a brushless motor, which will increase the tool’s life, performance, and requires less service work compared to other brushed tool models on the market.
