Milwaukee has introduced its new heavy-duty Kango 5kg-class combination and chiseling hammers - the Kango 545 S and the Kango 500 S.

Common applications include chiseling grooves into wall surfaces for electrical conduit or hold pipes, removing concrete or mortar pieces, repairing brick walls, chiseling away old tiles, drilling holes for the installation of power junction boxes or sockets and drilling through-holes for pipes or power cables.

The two hammers feature electronics for precise starting of drilling/chiseling, a lock-on function for fatigue-free, continuous operation, a Variolock chisel, which can be locked in 12 positions, and a safety clutch to protect the user and the tool in the case of jammed drill bits.

According to the company, the hammers feature unmatched running times together with the high lifetime drilling and chiselling capacities. It also claims that the Milwaukee 1,300W motor is the largest and most powerful heavy-duty on the market.

An angled power cable connection prevents breakage. The countersunk gear switch is protected against collision or abrasion.

The hammers deliver 12/14 joules of energy, for the fastest possible penetration - saving time, energy and costs.

On the Kango 545 S, the straight handle keeps the high torque at drilling under control. While the Kango 500 S, with its spade handle, ensures control of the tool and the optimum grip at various chiselling positions and angles, according to Milwaukee.

The big gear switch, speed switch and tool reception make for good grip, handling and comfortable operation, even with gloves. In the soft-hammer mode, drilling speed and blow energy can be reduced when drilling in sensitive materials (bricks, tiles, old walls).

Extra-efficient serviceability saves time and money, according to Milwaukee, and the extra-long, 6m power cable, the longest in the class, ensures more operating freedom.
