Construction giant Caterpillar is adding a new DX29 jackhammer to its product line-up, featuring 1750W of power in a compact body that makes it portable and perfect for any demolition project on site. The unit replaces the DX28, which provided 1100W of hammering power.
The DX29 comes with a 30mm Hex chuck that allows for easy and efficient swapping out of chisels and bits on site, while new softer grips give operators a comfortable hold during operation and transportation. The DX29’s motor features a built-in speed controller that means you do not need to hold a trigger while hammering, and the system also prolongs the motor life by controlling the impact sent through the jackhammer’s engine.
Weighing just 15kg, it is incredible to see the amount of technology that has been put into the jackhammer. The DX29 has a built-in triple anti-vibration system that minimises stress on the operator’s arms and body during use, meaning you can use the jackhammer longer in less discomfort.
The demolition tool has added features that make operation safer and easier than before – there is a service reminder light that warns users when the jackhammer needs to be mechanically assessed and serviced. New auto-stop carbon brushes and a lock-on switch, as well as a super strong and efficient magnesium gearbox add to the DX29’s durability and enhanced performance. The tool comes with an auxiliary handle, cleaning cloth, grease and two chisels (a pointed and flat head).
