Demolition Power Without the Weight

April 30, 2018
Hilti's demolition hammer has a prolonged lifespan due to the brushless, maintenance-free SR motor.

The Hilti demolition hammer TE 2000-AVR was designed with maneuverability in mind. The TE 2000-AVR is highly versatile and covers a wide range of applications.  Plus, its low weight makes it easy to handle, yet doesn’t cut corners on tool performance. 


The TE 2000-AVR is the perfect blend of both power, ergonomics, and weight.  At 26 ft-lb of impact energy, and 1,800 impacts per minute, the TE 2000-AVR boasts double the performance compared to tools in the same weight class (27-42 lb.), and similar performance to competitor tools in the 65-lb. weight class. Weighing in at 33 lb., it is easy to maneuver and transport throughout the jobsite, and is ready for use in minutes.  And with a t-handle design and exceptionally low vibration from Hilti’s innovative sub-chassis AVR (Active Vibration Reduction) system, it allows for efficient performance and maximum working comfort.


The TE 2000-AVR can handle floor demolition applications for base materials up to 8 in. thickness.  It can also perform tile removal and ground rod driving applications.


The TE 2000-AVR utilizes a brushless SR motor which eliminates the need for regular replacement of carbon brushes. And the detachable power cord allows for quick replacement of broken or damaged cords right on the jobsite. Tool electronics help ensure consistent performance in multiple power scenarios for the TE 2000-AVR.  Whether you are running the tool from a wall outlet or a 100-ft., 12-gage extension cord, the performance will remain consistent.


When used with the TE DRS-B and a Hilti vacuum, the TE 2000-AVR is Table 1 compliant with OSHA 1926.1153. Plus, the TE 2000-AVR is backed by Hilti’s 20/2/1 year warranty – 20 years of repair or replacement of defective parts; 2 years no cost repair including wear and tear; and a guaranteed 1-day turn-around on repairs* – so you can be sure it will be ready to go to work when you are.


Specifically designed for use with the TE 2000-AVR, the new pointed chisel TE-SPX SM is your best partner for breaking concrete daily. With more breaking power, higher bending strength, and better dust control, the TE SPX pointed, self-sharpening, polygon chisel provides the highest reliability and a longer lifetime.


The innovative X-polygon wave design and tube effect maximizes your Hilti demolition hammer performance, reduces your downtime due to sticking or jammed chisels, and provides optimized dust removal. With TE SPX pointed chisels there is no more re-sharpening, jamming or sticking like conventional chisels. The TE SPX is made from high-alloy steel and a unique induction hardening process for the highest reliability and reduced risk of chisel breakage.
