TULSA, Okla. – February 3, 2010 — Hilti is redefining what’s possible with its most powerful breaker ever, the new TE 1500-AVR. The Hilti TE 1500-AVR Breaker combines tremendous impact energy with the lowest vibration in its class for exceptional demolition productivity. Ideal for everything from concrete foundation removal to digging in clay to penetrations for pipes and electrical boxes, it also offers extended durability.
With 22 foot-pounds of impact energy generated by a 1,800-watt motor, the TE 1500-AVR delivers up to 1,950 blows per minute to efficiently break up floors, slabs or foundations. However, all that power doesn’t come at the sacrifice of operator comfort. The TE 1500-AVR offers a best-in-class weight-to-power ratio, along with Hilti’s sub-chassis active vibration reduction (AVR) system that dramatically cuts the vibration felt by the operator. This advanced design allows the operator to work longer and be more productive.
Hilti didn’t just maximize power with the TE 1500-AVR, it also extended durability. An active cooling system reduces wear and tear on the motor, electronics and hammering mechanism. Three-chamber sealing keeps dust out of the tool for longer life with fewer breakdowns. Plus, the TE 1500-AVR features a brushless SR motor that eliminates the need to replace carbon brushes — allowing longer intervals between service and twice the expected tool life.
For versatility, the TE 1500-AVR is compatible with a variety of TE-SP polygon self-sharpening chisels, which provide strong breaking power and stick less in concrete and masonry. Also compatible is the Hilti TE DRS-B Dust Removal System that reduces cleanup time and captures dust for a better working environment.
From quality construction to outstanding power, the Hilti TE 1500-AVR is built to provide long-term service under the most rugged conditions. For added peace of mind, the TE 1500-AVR is also backed by Hilti Lifetime Service, a unique service agreement that includes two years of no-cost coverage.
