New Snap-on® PH3050 Air Hammer Reduces Vibration, Increases Power

Dual Elastomer Cushions Isolate Vibration; Heavier Piston Adds 30 Percent More Force

KENOSHA, Wis., March 3, 2004 - The vibration is down and the power is up on the new PH3050 Air Hammer from Snap-on Tools Company.

The company's exclusive use of vibration-fighting dual elastomer cushions reduces vibration in the PH3050 Air Hammer by 300 percent, compared to competitive models. The elastomer
cushions isolate vibration similar to the way motor mounts and shock absorbers work, displacing and absorbing energy rather than transmitting it to the user's hand.

With a 40 percent heavier piston and a three-inch stroke, the PH3050 Air Hammer delivers harder hitting blows - a 30 percent increase that translates into quicker cutting through a variety
of surfaces and materials.

A built in four-position air regulator gives the operator maximum flexibility in selecting the proper air flow for the application at hand. At its four different settings, the PH3050 Air Hammer's can strike 1,740 to 2,460 blows per minute.

The tool's replaceable brass inlet filter protects the air hammer from damaging debris and prolongs tool life. Other durability features include the use of high grade steel in the tool's barrel, a Kevlar® reinforced flutter disk and a hardened front-bore bit for greater strength and tool life.

In addition to the dramatic reduction in tool vibration, the PH3050 Air Hammer provides other operator-comfort features, including an oversized soft grip comfort cushion trigger to reduce finger irritation and provide greater operator control of the tool's variable speed trigger. The tool's multi-port direct exhaust keeps air away from the work area, allowing for increased work performance. The 4.9-lb. unit sports a T-handle design for optimum tool balance and control while in use.
