MAKITA AVT ROTARY HAMMER NAMED BEST IN REVIEW

HR4013C tops a field of five with superior performance, vibration reduction, and more

In a New Hampshire quarry, the Makita HR4013C topped a field of five 1-9/16" rotary hammers.

The editors at ToolBoxBuzz.com gathered five top 1-9/16" rotary hammers and dust extraction systems. Then they took them to a quarry in New Hampshire for a side-by-side review.

After hours of drilling and chipping -- and based on a rigorous ten-stage criteria -- the Makita 1-9/1/6" AVT® Rotary Hammer came out on top. 

Makita was named best in anti-vibration, ease of use/operating features, and chipping. It also received high marks for drilling speed, value, and bit changes. It was named their overall pick with this resounding thumbs-up: 

"Makita took this Head to Head with superior AVT, great operator interface, and a few innovative features sprinkled in to top it all off. This tool performed exceptionally well in almost all categories, was a favorite among the crew, and is significantly more affordable than our number two model the Hilti TE-60-ATC-AVR."

Hard-Hitting Performance AND Comfort
In the development of the new HR4013C, Makita engineers focused not only on power and specs but also on the end-user's comfort when using the tool. The HR4013C with enhanced Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT®) gives concrete contractors the lowest vibration in the 1-9/16" category, while at the same time delivering 20% more impact energy for all-day industrial applications. For more on this remarkable engineering achievement, go here.

Dust extraction accessories were part of test, which included the 12 gallon Xtract Vac Jobsite Vacuum (VC4710), and SDS-MAX Dust Extraction Kit (196537-4).

The Makita HR4013C was named best in key categories, including chipping.
