Ingersoll Rand has expanded their MAX family of air tools with the all-new 118MAX Long Barrel and 122MAX Short Barrel Air Hammers. These air hammers deliver best-in-class comfort, power and productivity to handle the most challenging material prep and fabrication jobs. The patented anti-vibration design reduces tool vibration, and noise output is reduced up to 3 dBA. The tool also is equipped with an improved ergonomic grip for extra comfort. These tools feature a new quick-change retainer to reduce wear and allow for faster chisel changeovers.

Features and benefits

The new air hammers feature a patented anti-vibration design which reduces tool vibration by more than 30 percent when compared to standard air hammers in its class. Noise output is reduced by up to 3 dBA as compared to standard air hammers, and the tool has been equipped with an improved ergonomic grip to provide additional comfort during extended use.

These air hammers were designed with high-volume fabrication and prep work in mind. The tool features a new quick-change retainer that reduces wear, and allows for faster chisel changeovers for increased productivity. Each of the tools is offered in a kit that includes a blow-molded case and 5-pc chisel set (Nos. 118MAXK and 122MAXK).

Origin 

Ingersoll Rand wanted to expand the MAX family of tools, and they wanted to develop air hammers that are worthy of the MAX name. Ingersoll Rand came up with a solution to make more powerful tools that reduced tool vibration and noise output.

Ingersoll Rand has a long line of air hammers and these tools are getting more technologically advanced, but maintain a simple design to keep it from being complex for the end-user. These particular air hammers, like all Ingersoll Rand tools and equipment, are designed to make the customer as satisfied and comfortable as possible.

The tool is available through all licensed Ingersoll Rand distributors. The seller/distributor will be selling a quality top of the line product that the end-user will really enjoy. Ingersoll Rand does extensive research and works with many mechanics to find out what they want in a tool and what would make the job more productive.
