How to choose a heavy, comfortable, but not a big puncher with a cartridge SDS MAX (SDS MAX)?It would seem that reigns in Europe crisis, stagnation of production, tempered the ardor of buyers.However, most manufacturers of big names continue to increase momentum and produce large-sized tools.Particular attention is paid by such companies jackhammers and electric hammer as the one of the most sought after in the construction market.We have already told how to choose a punch for the home.T EPER we choose a heavy hammer SDS MAX following companies - manufacturers - Makita (Makita), DeWALT, HITACHI (Hitachi), Hilti, AEG.

indicative that the production of building materials giant, with years o

f experience - the company the METABO - only recently approved the release of heavy shock technique obviously promising area.Not far behind and the company DeWalt, widely known for the production of high-quality woodworking tools, offering customers drills and jackhammers.The high rate of return from the sale of the shock technology is achieved, in the first place, rather expensive service, but not margins.Due to the enormous stress level, which are the tools, parts and mechanisms rather quickly wear out, requiring replacement and reconstruction.

The choice of fastening systems in percussion instruments, such as chisels and drills long shot.To date, almost all manufacturers have preferred SDS MAX system due to the exceptional wear resistance of parts, resistance to overload, as well as to the damaging effect of vibration.Such unanimity in the ranks of producers found a positive response among consumers, sinceIt has the opportunity to choose supplies, focusing not only on the specific manufacturers, but also within the desired price range.

This, as you know, avaricious pays twice, and the consumer, wanting to save money, often forgets that the hammers and drills, the impact energy which is extremely high, can not be equipped with cheaper consumables.Take the example of two punch with the force of impact of 12 J and 27 J (DWT BH-1500 BMC 1500 watts and AEG PN 11 1700 W, respectively).In both cases, the impact energy during operation of the tool is sufficient to flatten the shank drill low quality and low price, without the possibility of self recovery.However, builders are quite entitled to pay a replacement Drum barrel, which will cost a pretty penny.Calculate: the item is worth a few hundred dollars, the cost of restoration of the punch and replacement parts are not counted in the tens of rubles.It is easy to calculate the amount of the overpayment.

As we know, the requirements for European producers of percussion instruments is several times higher than the demand in our country.Our products are simply not subject to rigorous quality controls at export abroad: are present electrical interference affecting the quality of the work, a high level of noise and unacceptable vibration levels - Unfortunately, the scope of which have become the norm for European producers, our manufacturers are originalProcrustean bed.Squeeze it until there is no way.In particular, the technique of foreign production is now equipped with anti-vibration handles and straps against depreciation, significantly reducing the harm caused by the builders at work.

Makita - a well-established company in the field of production of percussion instruments - a long time produced a punch model HR5001C SDS-MAX without significant changes in the structure, which, incidentally, were not necessary.Punch fully meet the requirements of the time: a high level of stamina, endurance and performance, coupled with the power of 1500 W motor, the power stroke of good 17, 5 J, weighing 10 kg and cost a little less than 20 thousand rubles..This tool allows us to call one of the best in its niche SDS MAX and price category.

However, due to the need to comply safety requirements , MAKITA produces SDS MAX Hammer HR5210C with identical specifications, but with improved parameters of safety, first of all, reduce vibration during operation (such additional protection was called AVT): a dynamic counterbalance (compensate for vibration due to piston protivohoda), anti-vibration handle and amortization lining.Immaculately fit into the standards of Europe, a tool, however, gained half a kilogram in weight and 4000 rubles in value.However, representatives of companies from European countries estimated that spending on the improvement of percussion instruments in the framework of safety in times less spending on treatment of victims from the same tool, but created without observance of strict rules.

increasingly popular among manufacturers of liquid lubricant gets mechanisms severe shock technology.There are a quite plausible explanation: the liquid lubricant, in contrast to the usual, it thickens in the cold rather slowly, quickly spread through the mechanism tool, protecting the gearbox from the heat, and this extends the life of the punch or a jackhammer.

housing - one more important detail, which is directly proportional to the quality of protection provided.Housing of high quality plastic saves not only the metal parts of the machine, but also its operator from burns, reduces the level of vibration is an insulator from the effects of electric current.

opinion that the perforator housing during operation should not be heated - a mistake.However, there is a certain temperature limit of its heat, which is designed to maintain lubrication, ventilation and metal body, heat dissipation and cooling tool.Otherwise, not only there is a risk of burns, but also reducing tool life.Refrigeration is also an elongated handle, which is a complete set of drills, such as company DeWALT.In addition, the handle - a very useful and convenient item for those builders who often carry out work on a horizontal surface.

With regard complete severe shock technology, the best in terms of the profitability of alternative: buy the gun or a jackhammer in a special suitcase, necessary for storage and safe and comfortable transportation of instruments, and with a maximum of one chisel.Quite simply, often manufacturers equip the instrument with unnecessary details and drills that are ultimately unlikely to be useful.Therefore, the council for the economy: to buy the necessary minimum, picking up later on their own the rest of the necessary elements.

Another firm, in addition to the above kings in the production of percussion instruments is the HILTI, the principle of which is as follows: implementation of direct sales exclusively produced equipment, bypassing the suppliers.It is often fraught with complications for buyers of small settlements related to repairs and service.On the other hand, there are numerous laudatory reviews about the company on the part of a great number of customers and a unique warranty and service: The elimination of any damage within 2 years.It remains to solve a small problem: how to get to remote villages to the authorized service center and, of course, solve the problem with the price.The cost of these miracle machines reaches 98, 5 thousand rubles (as in the HILTI TE 70).This kind of record.At the same time, for the same price you can buy a 4 punch BOSCH, spare parts to find that much simpler.

Selection tool when buying in the first place depends on the functions that are most often used.For the destruction of any design has obvious advantages hammer due to the fact that its performance in the direct impact mode is several times higher than that of the punch of the same class.

How to choose a versatile heavy hammer SDS MAX

Often, due to the high value of the instruments, the question arises: what is more profitable to take - hammer or hammer.And more profitable in terms of both cost and tool versatility.If there was such confusion, the choice is clear: the punch.

Heavy drills conventionally divided into three main groups, based on their weight:

- weight of not more than 5 kg;

- weight of not more than 7 kg;

- the weight of 11 kg or more.

Hammers middle weight category are not inferior in functionality heavy punchers, significant differences in the price.Their main functionality is quite wide: the installation of split systems, drilling of wall openings and laying of pipes and wiring.Undisputed plus 7-kilogram instrument in drills for the possibility of using light drills due Adapter SDS +.This option will allow considerable savings.

To simplify the selection of drills, comparable to the most popular brands with approximately the same parameters in the same weight category (except the last), and the terms of the warranty service.It will be drills Makita HR4011C, DeWALT D 25600 K, HITACHI DH40MRY, Hilti TE 76-ATC, AEG PN 11 E (heavy hammer).

tool uniqueness available a specially developed plastic gear housing, which does not need to be removed during the passage of service that at times reduces the process.Thanks to this successful innovation has increased the ability of the body to remove heat during operation, cooling the instrument, as well as facilitating access to carbon brushes.In addition, the punch is equipped with comfortable extra long handle, which can be attached to its rear.The power and energy of the impact of such a tool: 1150 W and 10 J respectively.A small drawback of the system is the lack of AVT system, which is not fully compensated by the depreciation of overlays.Also, is there a display system that allows you to quickly identify and eliminate wear or breakage.

Like the previous competitor, the tool allows you to make holes with a diameter of around 45 mm.Its weight - 6.8 kg, and the price - 19 500 rubles.However, for the price (in the case of contact action, of course), we get together to hammer sander DeWALT D 28942 (capacity of 2.2 kW, the diameter of a circle of 230 mm) in one large suitcase.In the free market buying such a gift will cost 5500 rubles.



This tool stands out among fellow body design, but otherwise similar to the previously discussed.With engine power not exceeding 950 W, punch demonstrates the impact energy of 10.5 J. Also of interest is the high level of engine protection against ingress of small construction waste during operation.Speaking of protection, we should also mention the presence of anti-vibration system of the same brand.Also, the tool boasts a high frequency of strokes: up to 2650 per minute, which is associated with the electronic engine speed control: a maximum of 480 revolutions per minute.Holes which can be give maximum punch 40 mm in diameter, using a hollow drill bits, this parameter is increased to 105 mm.The price of such a miracle - 16, 5 thousand Russian rubles.

Due to the weight of 11, 8 kg hammer is categorized as severe.The rating he got with a view to visualize the difference between the punches of different weight categories.

This punch made in Germany - the new model.It is characterized in the first place, the linear motor direction, and therefore it is ideal for operation in the horizontal plane or for the production in a narrow space.With a stunning performance at the expense of high-power motor (1700 W) and, as a consequence, the crushing impact energy - 27 J Cost of the king -. 26500.comparisons can be concluded as follows: having a reasonable price, its characteristics and parameters shown it significantly exceeds the average weight category drills.


Verdict: everyone has a hard punch, there are pros and cons, however, under the initially set parameters (small construction team) is most suited DeWALT D 25600 the K, because:

- angle grinder in addition superfluous does notwill be;

- the ease, convenience, and excellent technical parameters, such as: engine power and impact energy, emit beneficial punch among others;

- the quality of products by DeWALT is no doubt;

- the company's level of service is only increased in the last few years, causing multiple positive feedback, in addition: a variety of nice promotions and bonuses served their purpose for the good reputation.
