The mother of all tools, the Hilti TE 50-AVR. Now when I say that, it’s not their biggest, badest combihammer on the market. The TE 50 is the middle of the road, but it’s one of the tools that will put a smile on your face. Talk about power, portability, and ease of use, the TE 50 meets those combinations. Before I jump into this tool, I want to hit a couple of key highlights. This tool is light, compact and powerful for drilling or chipping. The AVR or Active Vibration Reduction does an awesome job at dampening the feedback you get with these types of tools. For the last item, this is designed with a detachable power cord, perfect for quick replacements.
Talk about power, this combihammer has a ton of power. The no load speed is 360 rpm, but the impact energy is 4.4 ft-lbs which will turn any concrete job into swiss cheese. The tool puts out 3,510 ipm which is no small feat.
What makes this tool so unique and so desired in the workplace is not only is this tool powerful, but it’s very compact and lightweight. When you are working with these types of tools all day long, it really takes a toll on your body. Anything that can reduce the weight and reduce vibration is a win. With the TE 50, you get both. This tool is designed to turn concrete into dust, and with that said, you know what happens when you mix power cords and concrete Yes, you get cords that get damaged and stop working. Luckily Hilti designed this with a detachable cord and even tossed in an extra when you buy this tool. Now if concrete or something else falls on the power cord and ruins it, you’re not out of work. Just detach the broken cord and put in a new cord and you’re ready to work.
The bottom line is this tool is made to do some serious work on serious job sites. What else can you say about this tool?
