Experience the difference with DEWALT’s first Perform & Protect Hand Tool – the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker. DEWALT’s Perform & Protect tools are designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment, or low vibration, without sacrificing performance. In this case, the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker falls under the vibration pillar.
Prolonged exposure or high levels of vibration may cause fatigue and discomfort. The DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker — model DWHT75900 —features a lightweight carbon fiber composite structure that weighs 45% less, and reduces vibration levels by 45% and muscle effort by 25% allowing you to work longer with less fatigue.
Due to the internal complexity of traditional hammer tackers and bodies made of die-cast aluminum, they are not ergonomic in nature, but rather bulky and heavy to use, hold, and carry. This can lead to reduced job site productivity, especially for projects that require swinging overhead or multiple repetitions. Designed in conjunction with United States Ergonomics standards, the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker’s carbon fiber housing provides an ergonomic, slim, and comfortable handle that allows the user an enhanced feel.
“The lighter weight is expected to result in measurable ergonomic benefits to workers that carry the tools on their tool belts and/or use the tools for hours/day,” as stated by United States Ergonomics.
To meet United States Ergonomics testing standards, muscle activity levels of the hand and arm were recorded as carpentry and roofing professionals completed a series of common applications with the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker. The muscle effort levels were analyzed to assess the effort for all major muscles involved in the tasks. Based on the positive testing performance of the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker, it has been awarded the United States Ergonomics Ergonomic Product Certification.
Never sacrifice performance to get an easy swing—the DEWALT Carbon Fiber Composite Hammer Tacker is tested up to 450,000 cycles**, ensuring product reliability and jobsite performance.
