Vessel Co. has introduced the GT-5000HD gasoline-powered hammer drill equipped with a two-stroke, forced air-cooled engine providing high torque output and accommodating up to a 1.97-in. (50 mm) diameter SDS-max shank hammer drill.

The unit is ergonomically balanced, weighs 39.5 lb (17.9 kg), and can be comfortably used in the horizontal or vertical position. The manufacturer notes it doesn’t use forced air to blow debris from the hole, so operators are at less risk for inhaling dust particles. The GT-5000HD is approved by Emission Control Directive 2002/88/EC and 97/68/EC and carries the CE label.
