AVT - Anti Vibration Technology

AVT - Anti Vibration Technology

AVT is designed to reduce vibrations normally transmitted to the operator.

These vibrations induce fatigue, accidents and long term injuries (RSI) etc.

AVT - saves time, money and compliance costs without reducing efficiency.

Experience the difference try AVT for yourself

Makita used the science of earthquake engineering to introduce the safest heavy-duty power tools available with vibration ratings nearly 50% lower than comparable products. AVT uses the science of dynamic dampening to dramatically reduce rotary vibration and at the same time increase impact power by up to 75%.

Counterweight mechanism

dampens the vibration produced by impact mechanism by moving a counterweight in the opposite direction to the movement of the piston.

Damper spring

absorbs reaction force caused by drill bit at the moment of impact.
