DEWALT® Delivers Largest Line of Low-Vibration Rotary Hammers with Launch of Six New SDS MAX and Spline Combination Rotary and Chipping Hammers

TOWSON, Md. (August 12, 2010) – DEWALT announced today the launch of six new SDS Max and Spline hammers, including two 1-3/4†Combination Rotary Hammers (D25602K and D25651K), two Chipping Hammers (D25831K and D25851K), and two 1-9/16†Combination Rotary Hammers (D25501K and D25553K). Ideal for a variety of professional applications in the commercial construction and concrete construction trades, the new rotary hammers include innovative features that deliver the comfort, control, and performance that commercial contractors demand.

“Through our research with rotary hammer users, we identified the need to decrease vibration and increase control,†said Jeff Beck, Product Manager, DEWALT. “Our new line of combination rotary and chipping hammers not only features engineering and design advancements that offer the professional contractors the comfort, control, and performance they demand in a professional product, but it also maintains the lightweight, compact size users prefer.â€

A key frustration with users of combination rotary hammers is the amount of vibration produced by the tool. As a result of its extensive research with professional contractors, DEWALT has developed SHOCKS – Active Vibration Control®, currently found on some of its SDS Plus and 1-7/8†and 2†SDS Max rotary hammers, which reduces vibration by up to 50 percent compared to most competitive products.

This feature delivers improved comfort and increased productivity when compared to tools without vibration control. SHOCKS – Active Vibration Control can now be found on DEWALT’s new 1-3/4†SDS Max and Spline combination rotary hammers (D25602K and D25651K) and chipping hammers (D25831K and D25851K). When combined with the current line of rotary hammers, DEWALT’s offering of low-vibration rotary hammers that features SHOCKS – Active Vibration Control is the largest offering from any power tool manufacturer. The line of low-vibration hammers includes cordless and corded SDS, Combination SDS Max & Spline Rotary Hammers, Chipping, Demolition, and Breaker Hammers.


In addition to tool vibration, another concern from professional contractors is reactionary torque during bind-up situations, such as hitting rebar when drilling holes in concrete. DEWALT addresses this concern with it’s patented two-stage clutch system, Complete Torque Control (CTC)®, which is now offered on the new 1-3/4†SDS Max and Spline combination rotary hammers (D25602K and D25651K). The first clutch setting, which activates at 30 ft-lbs. of torque, will be a sufficient setting for the majority of drilling applications. The second clutch setting, which engages at 60 ft-lbs. of torque, is designed for drilling large holes or coring applications. Once the tool has been unplugged and is then plugged back in, it will automatically reset back to clutch setting one, providing the user the setting with maximum torque control.


In order to provide a tool with the power and performance to complete the toughest applications, these six new rotary hammers utilize DEWALT’s patented, high performance motor technology, which generates increased power, up to 13.5 AMPs, at a smaller size, compared to the previous generation motor. DEWALT’s hammer mechanism produces high impact energy, up to 9.5 ft-lbs., and when combined with its new motor technology delivers fast drilling and powerful chipping to complete the most demanding applications.


The new line of combination rotary hammers and chipping hammers will be available in fall of 2010 at construction supply stores. All DEWALT SDS Max and Spline rotary hammers with SHOCKS – Active Vibration Control carry a 2-year free service contract, 3-year limited warranty, and 90-day money-back guarantee. The new 1-9/16†SDS Max and Spline combination rotary hammers carry DEWALT’s 1-year free service contract, 3-year limited warranty, and 90-day money-back guarantee.
