Hitachi 20 lb Electric Demolition Hammer Featuring IDI Technology

There is arguably nothing more important in a demolition hammer than strength. User comfort with low operating noise are important too, but they mean nothing if the tool can’t tackle the job. The Hitachi 20 lb Demolition Hammer aims to be the answer to all hand-demolition hammer problems.

Hitachi claims huge strength for hammer. Though I have not used it personally the specs look good. It is powered by a lusty motor working off 12.5 amps with a maximum 19.2 ft/lbs of impact energy. Hitachi claims it can “force its way through materials quickly and easily.” The durability aspect of the hammer is something Hitachi has also considered. Hitachi has made use of its patented IDI technology to provide double insulation for significant durability and extended tool life.

Noise level is always an issue with demolition hammers. Hitachi claims only 91.5 decibels at full-load, which, if true, would make it one of the quietest demolition hammers on the market. Then there is the user comfort and convenience aspect. The Hitachi 20lb Electric Demolition Hammer has a vibration-absorbing handle, designed to flex so that it absorbs vibration and reduces user fatigue. It also has constant speed control (a dial), a variable lock mechanism (12 angles) and an adjustable side D-handle that rotates 360° and swivels front to back.

It offers impact energy at 5.2 – 19.2 (ft/lbs) and speed 930 – 1650 BPM. The power input required is 1,350W.
