Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT)

AVT is a technology that minimizes the vibration coming from the tool to the operator’s hands. A built-in dynamic vibration absorber reduces the vibration by counteraction and decreases discomfort to the operator.

Extra-Low Vibration achieved by "AVT".

AVT knows ...

Makita AVT earthquake engineering cuts vibrations to bits science of earthquake engineering to introduce the safest heavy-duty power tools available with vibration ratings nearly 50% lower than comparable products. Makita's innovative AVT, Anti Vibration Technology, uses the science of dynamic damping to dramatically reduce rotary vibration and at the same time increase impact power by up to 75%.


“Active” Dynamic Vibration Absorber

[HR4011C and HR4010C]
Shift of air pressure in crank room and barrel room "actively" controls balancer to move opposite of piston.


Vibration Absorbing Grip

Spring loaded hinged grip absorbs vibration.
