October 27, 2017 — The Hilti SDS-max combihammers TE 60-AVR and TE 60-ATC/AVR are the first class of Hilti SDS-max combihammers to use the Hilti Connect App. This allows contractors to use any NFC-enabled device to access “everything from getting a comprehensive tool history and summary to sending in a request for a repair from the jobsite,” the company says. Both combihammers feature Active Vibration Reduction (AVR). The TE 60-ATC/AVR model also comes with an Active Torque Control (ATC) system that reduces injury caused by kickback.
Delivering 5.8 ft-lbs of impact energy at 3,300 impacts-per-minute, Hilti TE 60s are ideally suited for drilling anchor through-holes in concrete and masonry, medium-duty demolition work, coring in masonry and concrete up to 4-in. in diameter and chiselling out penetrations, says Hilti. Both models have an optimum hole range of 11/16-in. up to 1-9/16-in., a maximum hammer drilling hole diameter of 2-in. and a maximum percussion coring diameter of 4-in.
