Makita's new generation of machines are more powerful than ever before, but thanks to AVT™ technology they also break new ground in vibration protection.
How AVT works
The benchmark in vibration reduction Makita demolition tools are among the best in the world. Working with the users to solve the problem of vibration Makita's AVT products have been designed in close relation to users needs at site level.
Focusing on the three D's: Dialogue, Development & Delivery
No effort has been spared to ensure that our products provide the professional user with reliable, long lasting power. The diagram on the left shows the benefits of AVT at work and how we have managed to apply this revolutionary new technology to two of our most heavy duty hand held tools.
The AVT mechanism works by transfering air around a series of chambers which, in turn, pushes a counterbalance in the opposite direction to the piston, thereby cancelling out the vibration the piston would have created otherwise.
Shock absorbing handles are also used on appropriate tools for added protection.
