More Bite than Bark with Hitachi's New DH24PF3 Rotary Hammer

Hitachi Power Tools today announced its 15/16” SDS Plus Rotary Hammer, the DH24PF3, designed to blow away the competition by offering significantly faster drilling speed and unbeatable chiseling force at a competitive price.

The DH24PF3 gets the job done faster and is more compact than others in its class. This new rotary hammer from Hitachi is engineered to outperform the competition. Incorporating the most advanced features available, it is designed for the professional who demands speed and reliability from a rotary hammer. The powerful 7.0 Amp motor produces a best in class 2.5ft/lbs of impact energy, a no-load speed of 0-1,150 RPM and an impact rate of 0-4,600 IPM. These combine to give the DH24PF3 a best in class drilling speed that will beat the competition every time. The DH24PF3 Rotary Hammer delivers 3-modes of operation: drilling only, hammering only and hammer drilling, controlled by an easy-to-use mode selector dial located under the body. The 3-modes tackle a multitude of jobs from drilling anchor holes in concrete to groove digging and light chiseling. Its solid and dependable chuck accepts SDS Plus bits by simply clicking the bit into the retainer.

For removal, the retainer slides back and the bit is released, making replacements a breeze. The reverse feature is a push button style, situated above the oversized trigger, making it easy to change the rotation and back out bits. Sealed to prevent grease leakage and protect the motor from dust and debris, the DH24PF3 exhibits prolonged tool life and unmatched durability. When using a cold chisel or spade bit, the variable lock mechanism (available in hammer mode only) allows the user to select between 36 different tool angles to match the application. A lock-on speed button allows for continuous operation, reducing end-user fatigue.

An adjustable 360 degree side handle provides better control and can be removed when working in tight spaces for better maneuverability. The side handle also includes a depth gauge for consistent drilling depths. At just 5.3 lbs and 16” in length, the DH24PF3 is one of the lightest and most compact rotary hammers in its class. This increases maneuverability and reduces fatigue during use. The soft elastomer coated D-handle helps to absorb vibration and provides a comfortable and secure grip. The new DH24PF3 rotary hammer reflects the aggressive new ergonomic design being implemented by Hitachi Power Tools. Hitachi is pioneering yet another new trend in the industry- tools that incorporate the latest technology with ergonomic design- a look that will modernize the traditional shop or jobsite. The Hitachi DH24PF3 is the ideal tool for plumbing and conduit installation, HVAC & pest control installation, electrical installation, construction and repair work and other civil engineering applications.

It comes complete with a depth gauge, side handle and carrying case
