Hilti’s Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology

If you work onsite, exposure to vibration is generally part of the job and regular long-term exposure can lead to health problems such as: disrupting circulation in the hand and forearm, causing damage to nerves, tendons, muscles, bones, joints and even Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).

Our hire fleet of Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology equipment addresses this, with a combination of innovations to help minimise exposure to tool vibration by up to two-thirds compared to competitor tools.

It is integrated across a wide range of our tools available to hire, meaning they can be used safely for longer – improving your productivity. 

For example, with some of our breakers, such as the TE 1000-AVR, you can work a full 8-hour day on the tool without putting your health at risk. 

Hilti AVR

How does it work?

Inside the tool’s advanced AVR sub-chassis the hammering mechanism and motor are completely isolated from the outer casing and grips by a system of springs and pivots, which reduces vibration by up to two thirds compared to conventional breakers.

A decoupled handgrip and mechanical springs absorb vibration caused by the tool’s electro-pneumatic mechanism, which provides protection against the effects of long-term exposure to vibration.
