Metabo added a new bruiser to the fold with their MHE 96 SDS-Max demolition hammer. Built around a big-ass 15A motor stuffed into an aluminum case, it features Metabo’s best anti-vibration technology, which they call MVT. This hammer’ll bust up concrete and stone, and also keep the neighbor kids in their own yard –- you know, the basics.
The 15A motor provides up to 1,950 beats per minute and 1 to 27 joules of single-blow energy, which is a bunch of power to have at your disposal — unless you get crazy-strength from the yellow sun and come from way out of town, in which case it’s average.
The vario tacho constamatic (VTC) electronic speed control also enables the tool to maintain a steady number of blows per minute, even under load. In short, it’s got plenty of grunt — and did we mention it weighs around 27 pounds? Wimps need not apply.
No official word on price yet, but we’re guessing it’ll land somewhere around the thousand-dollar mark.
