Maxim Magazine featured the Makita 27 lb. AVT Demolition Hammer (model HM1214C) in their April 2011 issue.
Maxim reported the top features of this hard-hitting demo hammer to their 2.5 million readers, including the HM1214C's potent combination of power (14 AMP motor), less vibration (Makita's exclusive Anti-Vibration Technology reduces vibration), and versatility (27 lb. in-line design for horizontal or vertical applications).
Not so sure if that's a pro contractor in the photo. But regardless, one should always wear eye protection when actually using the HM1214C, like it says in the Instruction Manual.
The HM1214C is engineered with Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT), Makita's exclusive counterbalance system that greatly reduces vibration and directs more energy to the work surface for increased user comfort and greater productivity.
