Metabo’s new Rotary Hammer offers highest power to weight ratio in its class

Lightweight tool is safe, reliable


Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has expanded its line of powerful rotary hammers to include the KHE 3250 1-1/8” SDS-Plus rotary hammer, with the highest power to weight ratio in its class.

With power and speed for fast drilling, the KHE 3250 is lightweight and perfectly balanced, making it ideal for overhead drilling. The tool is perfect for commercial concrete construction and HVAC contractors, electricians, plumbers, sprinkler fitters, pest control workers and acoustical technicians. Primarily used for setting anchors, this new rotary hammer can also be used for drilling holes for pest control treatments.

The KHE 3250 SDS-Plus rotary hammer has a LongLife 7.2 A motor to provide 0 - 4,470 blows per minute at a force of 0 – 3.1 joules per blow and a no-load RPM of 0 - 1,150. Drilling capacity of the new rotary hammer is 1-1/8” in concrete using solid bits, 3-1/8” in brickwork using thin wall core bits, 1/2” in mild steel and 1-3/8” in softwood.

This combination hammer has a large and easily positioned 3 function switch for drilling with impact, rotary drilling without impact and chipping. In chipping mode, the chisel can be set in 12 different positions allowing the user to position the tool for easiest operation. The 360 degree side handle is vibration dampened and the rear handle offers a unique anti-vibration system that prevents vibration transference to the operator.

For improved tool life, the KHE 3250 SDS-Plus features the Metabo winding protection grid that deflects airborne debris for increased motor life, auto-stop carbon brushes, a tough aluminum die-cast gear housing and Metabo’s S-automatic safety slip clutch that helps protect the operator should the tool jam.
