AVR For Breakers

How Active Vibration Reduction helps minimise exposure to vibration

When you work on heavy-duty applications with breakers and demolition hammers, exposure to vibration is part of the job. Regular long-term exposure can lead to health problems, disrupting circulation in the hands and forearms, causing damage to nerves, tendons, muscles, bones and joints.

Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) is available across a wide range of our tools, including our breakers. Reduced vibration means reduced health risk – and increased productivity!

Thanks to our AVR system, workers do not feel as tired as when using conventional breakers and are allowed to work for longer on the tools before reaching HSE exposure limits. With some of our breakers, such as the TE 1000-AVR, you can work a full 8-hour day on the tool with significantly reduced risk.

Reduce dust exposure when breaking

When it comes to dust, size matters. While larger particles are filtered out by the mouth and nose, very fine dust can get into the airway and even to the farthest reaches of the lungs.

The silica dust released when breaking concrete is particularly hazardous – excessive exposure can cause many health issues, including lung cancer, asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and lung disease called silicosis.

The good news is, we have a solution. You can help keep your workers safe and ensure compliance with dust-related regulations by using the TE DRS-B dust removal system with our breakers. As well as health and safety gains, minimising dust on the job site helps to increase productivity and reduces wear and tear on tools and consumables.
