MAKITA INTRODUCES TWO NEW DEMOLITION HAMMERS FOR HIGH-DEMAND APPLICATIONS

The HM1502 and HM1512 feature powerful motors and accept Hex Bits

The new demolition hammers (HM1502 and HM1512) accept 1-1/8” Hex Bits for a wide range of applications.

May 18, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the innovation leader in power tools and accessories, has launched two new demolition hammers, 43 lb. Demolition Hammer (HM1502) and 45 lb. AVT® Demolition Hammer (HM1512). These powerful demolition hammers are ideal solutions for heavy demolition of lower wall zones or floor foundations up to 8” in thickness. These demolition hammers are ideal for digging trenches or tamping applications.
 
Both demolition hammers feature a powerful 15 AMP motor to handle the most demanding concrete applications. The HM1502 delivers 36.2 ft.lb. of impact energy and the HM1512 delivers 35.7 ft.lb. of impact energy.
 
The in-line body design is better adapted for working in narrow spaces and provides improved balance for maneuverability. The soft-start feature suppresses start-up reaction for smoother starts and better accuracy. A side handle swivels 360-degrees for increased maneuverability. The HM1512 features Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT®), an internal counterbalance system and vibration-absorbing handles that work together to reduce vibration. The easy-to-operate slide switch can be placed in Lock-On position without releasing the handles.
 
L.E.D. power lights indicate switch failure or cord damage. An L.E.D. service light indicates when the brushes will need to be replaced.
 
The demolition hammers are capable of being OSHA Table 1 compliant. The optional dust extractors and accessories are sold separately. Use the 197172-1 extraction attachment with the VC4210L or XCV13 Dust Extractors and Connector Cuffs for dust management. Users can quickly find an OSHA-compliant solution for Makita concrete drilling, surfacing and demolition tools on the Makita Product Solutions app at makitatools.com/dustmanagement
