Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin WACKER™s new EH 27 Low Vib electric breaker offers more power with less hand arm vibration (HAV). This newly engineered model has a leaf spring dampening system that is the basis for the reduction of HAV to 5.5 m/s2, providing the lowest HAV in its product class, and is a 28-percent reduction from previous models. The EH 27 Low Vib is the only machine in the industry that dampens vibrations in the entire upper housing including the handles which protects the user™s body from vibrations, increasing productivity through reduced fatigue and longer working duration.
An added benefit to this EH 27 Low Vib model is an increase in power up to 18%. According to Becky Gallert, demolition product manager for Wacker, The increase in power is a direct result of the lower vibration, because the percussion system is able to work more efficiently. By far, the best way to experience the benefits of this product is by running the machine. When compared to competitive models, you can actually see and feel the difference in the vibration and the increase in performance is also quite obvious.â€
