New D-Handle Rotary Hammer from Metabo Reduces "Reaching" In Down-Drilling and Overhead Applications
West Chester, PA, July 2004 - Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has introduced a new D-handle rotary hammer. The design of the new BHE-D24, which can be used for drilling into a variety of materials, including stone, concrete, wood, and steel, reduces operator reaching in both down-drilling and overhead drilling applications.
A gooseneck steel depth gauge provides increased drilling depth accuracy when setting anchors. The BHE-D24 incorporates Variospeed full-wave electronic speed control for variable speed control, a reverse feature for efficient drilling, and a die cast aluminum gearbox that allows for rapid heat dissipation and increased tool life.
As with all Metabo rotary hammers, the new BHE-D24 has a winding protection grid that deflects airborne debris away from armature windings, and increases motor life by up to five times in dusty environments.
The new BHE-D24 was designed to be user-friendly. The new rotary hammer features a large knob so the operator can easily change from percussion with rotation drilling to rotation only, even when wearing protective gloves. The 360° adjustable side handle is rubber coated to maximize user comfort and control during operation. Metabo's exclusive S-automatic safety clutch helps to protect both the operator and the new rotary hammer in the event of a bit jam.
With a 5.6 A motor, the drilling capacity of the new BHE-D24 is up to 1" in concrete, 1-9/16" in wood, and 1/2" in steel. The force of blows is 0-2.2 joules at 0-4,600 blows per minute, and no-load RPM is 1-1,000.
