Product review: 

Metabo hammers use standard SDS, or SDS Max carbide bits. Their highly efficient ball and roller bearing motors are rated between 4 and 15 amps, and all have unique winding protection grid. This helps their pure copper armature windings last up to 5 times longer.

All tools are fitted with electronic controls, ranging from speed regulators to sophisticated winding-temperature monitoring. They also have the unique Metabo slip clutch, which protects both operator and tool when an obstruction is encountered. To operate the tool as a regular drill, simply turn the ‘rotation only’ switch. With a wealth of features – from LED displays showing spindle rotation to electronic soft start – you can easily customize your Metabo rotary hammer to a particular project.


When you get yourself a Metabo MHE 5 chipping hammer you are covered for all your heavy duty projects and drilling, chipping, removing tiles and demolition becomes an easy job. The product includes support handle, grease, cleaning cloth and carrying case.
