Evaluation

A jackhammer for use on construction sites, this product is held in both hands and uses a vibrating action to carry out heavy breaking work at ground level. The corporate red color is set off by areas of black and five white letters. The appearance of the handles makes you yearn to grab them and use them like a professional, while the simple, even beautiful design suggests strength and reliability. One can sense that the development of this kind of product is grounded in a traditional management philosophy dedicated to a tireless search for technical innovation and a thoroughgoing effort to integrate function with design. Professional tools must inspire pride in the user, guaranteeing safety-conscious, high-precision work. This outstanding, inspiring tool fully meets these criteria.
