Also new for 2009 is a series of new hammers and combi hammers, including the new Kango 750S 7kg rotary hammer. Utilizing a counter balance system to fight vibration at its source, the Kango 750S 7kg rotary hammer results in a tri-axial vibration measurement of 9.5m/s². When combined with a 16 joule impact energy, the highest in its class, this makes it the most productive 7kg available.
Another tool from the range includes the new PH30 PowerQX Combi Hammer – also set to be a star player in 2009. With an 820w high power motor, the thermal motor cut off ensures the motor is never overloaded, therefore increasing durability.
