WEST CHESTER, Pa., -- Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has expanded its line of powerful rotary hammers to include the KHE 76 combination hammer that provides increased power and precision as well as user comfort and safety.
The new tool features an impact reduction setting that reduces impact energy by 30% when working with extremely pliable and brittle materials, yet offers the power to drill large diameter holes into the hardest masonry materials or to perform heavy chiseling. The versatile KHE 76 also allows users to quickly and easily move between masonry drilling and demolition applications without switching tools.
The new SDS-max combination hammer offers a high rotational torque of 796 inch-lbs and variable impact energy from 1 to 16 joules per blow. Drilling range in concrete is up to 2" using solid bits and 6" using core bits.
For added precision, the chisel on the combination hammer can be fixed in 12 positions and has an electronic soft start for spot-drilling.
Designed for comfort and safety, the KHE 76 features Metabo's VibraTech (MVT) three- position side handle that absorbs up to 60% vibration as well as active vibration control and vibration absorbing rear handle, resulting in fatigue-free operation. Metabo's S-automatic safety slip clutch protects the operator from kickback by absorbing the torque should the tool bind or snag.
The KHE 76 has a 15 A motor and a maximum impact rate of 2,735 blows/min. Metabo's Vario-Tacho-Constamatic electronic speed control enables the tool to maintain a virtually constant rate of impact and speed between no-load and load for maximum drilling speed.
The new tool features a tough magnesium die-cast gear housing as well as auto-stop carbon brushes with an LED service indicator light, a spring-loaded lip seal to prevent dust penetration into the SDS-Max chuck, a winding protection grid, and a durable electro-pneumatic high-performance hammer mechanism.
The KHE 76 weighs 18.5 lbs and comes standard with additional handle, drilling depth guide, lubricant, cleaning cloth and plastic carrying case.
