TULSA, Okla. August 1, 2008 With a new 1700 watt motor, the Hilti TE 80 ATC-AVR is the most powerful combihammer on the market. Coupled with this high power, the TE 80 ATC-AVR has unique industry leading features like Active Torque Control (ATC), Active Vibration Reduction (AVR), and a Theft Protection System (TPS) which combine to make it the perfect tool for heavy drilling and demolition.
The TE 80 ATC-AVR makes light work of a wide range of demanding jobs including hammer drilling in the ¾â€ to 6â€ diameter range in concrete, masonry and natural stone, drilling through-holes up to 6â€ in diameter in concrete and masonry, heavy chiseling work and drilling with high torque in wood and steel.
The Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) provides optimum operator protection and a high level of working comfort even during long periods of use. A mass damper system suspended on springs inside the casing absorbs vibration in the tool™s longitudinal axis while the grip, which is decoupled from the rest of the tool, efficiently absorbs even vibrational torque.
Another safety feature, unique to Hilti, is Active Torque Control (ATC), an electronic rapid cut-out system that disengages the tool drive system if the drill bit sticks and the tool starts to rotate too quickly, thereby providing additional operator protection.
Thanks to its exceptionally powerful motor and unbeaten speed of 360 r.p.m., the TE 80 ATC-AVR sets new standards and leaves nothing to be desired in terms of drilling and chiseling performance. It also comes complete with a built-in Theft Protection System (TPS) in order to help ensure that this highly desirable tool remains in the hands of its rightful owners. When the system is activated, unauthorized use of the tool is impossible making theft pointless.
As Hilti drill bits and chisels are always developed together and perfectly matched to the applicable electric tools, professional users benefit from superior system performance that adds up to much more than just the sum of its components.
As with all Hilti tools, the TE 80 ATC-AVR comes complete with Hilti Lifetime Service. Hilti provides this comprehensive, top-class service for the entire life of the productâ€”completely free of charge for the first two years from date of purchase covering repair or replacement of defective parts (even parts subject to wear and tear) and including free pick-up and return transport.* After that, Hilti continues to prove the quality of its products by setting a repair cost limit for the entire life of the product. That™s not just reassuring to know, it™s unique in this field.
