New Hilti Combihammers Out-Perform And Outlast The Competition
TULSA, (Okla.) - July 25, 2003 - The Hilti combihammer family grows even stronger with the addition of the TE 46, 56 and 56-ATC to its line. With a total of six combihammer tools, Hilti provides a selection of tools to meet different customer needs for virtually every application. The Hilti TE 46, 56 and 56-ATC offer such an increase in performance that they perform up to 40 percent faster in drilling and up to 30 percent faster chipping. With a longer lifetime and backed by the Hilti Two Year Full Service Program* the choice is simple - Hilti. With the Hilti Two Year Full Service Program, your tool will be serviced quickly and reliably with no additional cost to you during the first two years of use. Not like other warranty programs where you must take your tool in for repair, the Hilti Full Service Program includes transport of the tool to and from a Hilti Repair Center at no additional cost to you. The New Hilti TE 46 puts the power where it counts! The Hilti TE 46 is an addition to the Hilti TE-T drilling line. The TE-T connection offers more effective power transmission with medium sized bits, helping to increase the productivity of the tool. The TE 46 is a great compliment to the already successful TE 35. It's the perfect tool for drilling holes 5/8 inch to 1 inch in diameter and light duty chiseling. The Hilti TE 56/56-ATC is the "work horse" of combihammers. The TE 56 and 56-ATC combihammers provide 40 percent more power than their predecessor, the Hilti TE 55. Both the TE 56 and TE 56-ATC are ideal for drilling anchor holes and through holes, capable of drilling up to 3 9/16 inch diameter holes in concrete, as well as medium chiseling applications. The patented Active Torque Control (ATC) provides added operator protection because it constantly monitors the rotation of the tool and disengages the drive system if it senses the housing beginning to rotate to quickly.
