The new Hilti TE 700-AVR demolition hammer is built for comfort and has been specially designed for extensive renovation work. Featuring 15 percent more power, a reduced contact pressure, as well as an optional TE DRS-B Dust Removal System, the TE 700-AVR helps get jobs done faster like removing masonry, breaking out penetrations in concrete and enlarging opening in walls, as well as removing tiles and plaster.

Weighing in at only 17.4 lbs. with 8.5 ft-lb of impact energy, it races through any job. This tool achieves impressive breaking performance, while the Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) system keeps vibration to a minimum for increased comfort and productivity. An active cooling system reduces wear and tear, the three-chamber sealing helps keep dust out of the tool and the innovative brushless SR motor eliminates the need to replace carbon brushes. The result is longer intervals between service and twice the expected tool life.

It also features a lockable switch for easy sustained operation during long periods of use, a reduced hammering button that resets when unplugged, and a side handle with full radial and axial adjustments provides a secure grip in virtually any position.
