Increased Tool Life
At it’s inception, Makita set out to increase this demo hammers quality, tool life, and applicable customize-ability when they began engineering this hammer. As if the previous benefits were not proof enough, they added another addition to support the tool’s life, which is the automatic brush cut-out system and the enlarged carbon brush, both of which promote this tool’s overall good health over the course of it’s lifespan. Some side notes on the HM1214C is that it’s rubberized ergonomic soft grip, provides more comfort and control, and the included side handle swivels 360° for greater control.
