Increasing cordless productivity

Traditionally when breaking concrete, masonry or a tiled area, you would have had to use a sledge hammer, breaker bar and a few other tools. Since those days, electronic power tools have been developed that give you high-performance and high-speed breaking, but not the flexibility to quickly move between jobs.

The Hilti advantage

The TE 500-A36 cordless SDS-max breaker uses a class-leading 36 volt battery to deliver high performance for demolition and breaking, giving you a cordless tool with the power and reach to perform your job faster.

With features that help to improve productivity, the TE 500-A36 has a chuck that can be rotated so you can easily position the chisel and tool against the working surface. A Power Reduction Button lets you to perform fine chiseling with high precision while the brushless motor and hammering mechanism easily converts energy into concrete-breaking performance. All together this gives you a breaker that has a low weight, and is easy to hold, at height, for longer.

Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) and the optional Dust Removal System (DRS) helps to improve worker safety, allowing the TE 500-A36 to be used in a range of locations, while the ON!Track equipment tracking solution lets you quickly locate all your tools.

All Hilti cordless tools come with 2 years of wear-and-tear coverage and a 5-day repair turnaround. So even if your TE 500-A36 is out of action, we’ll take care of it, fast.
