Metabo 1/2" Hammer Drill Offers Maximum Performance And Durability For Heavy Duty Drilling Applications


West Chester, PA, April 2002 -- Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric tools for various industrial, construction and welding applications, offers the SBE750 1/2" hammer drill for heavy
duty drilling applications.

With a maximum tightening torque of 159 inch lbs., the SBE750 offers 3/4" capacity in concrete, 1/2" capacity in steel, and 1-1/2" capacity in softwood. Equipped with Metabo's "goose neck" depth gauge, the SBE750 allows maximum accuracy of drilling
depth by enabling the gauge tip to be positioned extremely close to the drill bit.

The SBE750 includes many other features unique to Metabo tools, such as a long lasting motor with an epoxy resin-coated field coil free of air inclusions, which helps prevent overheating under heavy loads. Additionally, a winding protection grid that
deflects airborne debris away from the armature windings increases the motor's life up to five times that of tools without such protection. Variospeed full-wave electronic speed
control allows for infinite speed variations, from the lowest speed value to the maximum, while reducing tool speed as the load increases. This means the lower the tool speed, the quicker the tool will stop.

Safety features incorporated into the SBE750 hammer drill include Metabo's proprietary S-automatic safety clutch for protection against tool kick back from tool jams and double
insulation that significantly reduces the chance of electric shock.

Rated at 6.2 Amps, with an input rating of 750 watts, the SBE750 weighs only 6.6 lbs. The hammer drill, which comes with a 1/2" geared chuck, also offers a no-load speed of 0-1,000/0-3,000 rpm and 0-57,000 no-load blows per minute.
