Percussive tools have for many decades been known for high vibration levels. The power of the tool has been directly associated with the weight and a heavier tool meant more power. When vibration exposure became a hot topic in the 70’s, a lot of effort was put into reducing the vibration levels of our percussive tools. This lead to break through in different vibration reducing technologies. Not only were we able to reduce the vibration levels significantly, we were also able to reduce the weight of the tools with sometimes as much as 50% but keeping the power. All our vibration damped percussive tools today are lighter with much lower vibration levels compared to the conventional hammers with similar power.
When looking for tools with good ergonomics, don’t forget to look at the power. The power is the only thing that can reduce the exposure time of all the ergonomic factors at the same time!
