Milwaukee Tool continues to expand its hand tool product offerings with the introduction of several new hammers: 17 oz. and 22 oz. framing hammers and a 19 oz. poly fiberglass hammer. Designed to address common user frustrations, the new Milwaukee hammers provide driving performance with up to 10 times less vibration, sources report.
Repeated use of hammers can result in sore elbows and forearm muscles, leading to two of the most frequent concerns with today’s hammers: vibration and swing balance. Each new Milwaukee hammer features a newly developed handle for vibration reduction and is precision-balanced for better driving performance.
Constructed with a steel I-beam handle, the new framing hammers are designed with a SHOCKSHIELD grip for grip durability and vibration reduction. For added user benefit, the framing hammers feature an asymmetrical anti-ring claw design which reduces noise and ringing when striking hardened objects. The addition of a magnetic nail set provides the added benefit of being able to set and drive a nail with one hand.
Also included in Milwaukee’s new Hammer lineup is a 19 oz. Poly Fiber Hammer, which is designed with a durable poly/fiberglass handle and over-molded to help prevent it from slipping out of the user’s hands during use. Similar to the rest of the lineup, the Poly Fiber Hammer is precision-balanced, has an asymmetrical anti-ring claw design, as well as magnetic nail set.
