35 lb. Demolition Hammer (HM1307CB)
The new 35 lb. Demolition Hammer (HM1307CB) combines more control and less vibration with hard-hitting power. The new HM1307CB is powered by a 14 AMP Makita-built motor with 34.9 Joules of impact energy and 730-1,450 BPM. At only 12.2 m/s2 vibration, the HM1307CB is engineered to deliver more power to the work surface for more efficient work. Ease-of-use features include a rubberized ergonomic soft grip to provide more comfort and control, and the easy-to-operate slide switch to increase productivity and allow for continuous use. In addition, the side-handle swivels 360° for greater control. 
Makita Motor Advantage
Makita rotary and demo hammers are powered by Makita-built motors engineered with field core interlocking steel laminations, dual ball bearing armature, and a larger surface commutator resulting in the most efficient transfer of energy for more power and longer life. In addition, the HM1307CB is engineered with Electronic Controller features including constant speed control that automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load to complete the most challenging jobs. In addition, the soft start feature suppresses start up reaction for more control and better accuracy, and the variable speed control dial enables the user to match the speed to the application for greater versatility.
Additional features include L.E.D. Service Lights that notify the user approximately 8 hours before the brushes need to be replaced or when there is switch failure or cord damage, and automatic brush cut-off to protect the commutator from damage for longer tool life.  
Engineered for Range of Applications
The HM1307CB is engineered for a range of applications including breaking through walls, chipping excess concrete, pulling up old flooring, demolition of concrete structures, trenching, and more. The HM1307CB is ideal for concrete contractors, flooring installers, remodelers, landscapers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class 35 lb. demolition hammer.
