looking good.. how many bills did that set you back bro?

There is no pricing on it yet. I will find out on the 19th. Im sure i'll poop myself when i find out. It is pretty sweet though. The crazy thing is that it is not that heavy, but the hammering action is sickening. I have the largest Bosch breaker besides the Brute and it cut down time by way more than 50 percent. The bosch broke up stone, concrete, bricks in 45 minutes and this did the exact same size and material in about 10. So it is definitely one bad mama jama.

How much heavier is it compared to a 905-1000?
I dont think it is any heavier than tha TE 1000 but hammers about 40 percent more efficiently so i have been told. Those self sharpening bits help out a lot too though. I ordered the 1000, but i heard this was coming so i wanted to take a look at the 1500, so i dont know how it compares to its little brother. I can tell you though it is about the same weight if not less than the Bosch hammer. I think they are better at putting the weight in all the right places so it doesn't feel as heavy as it really is.

any idea what thickness the 1000 is for? I heard that the 1000 was to be better than the Brute, but find that hard to believe, but am being told that the 1500 is comparable to compressed air hammer. Any thoughts on that.

Looking to get one of these or possibly the smaller TE1000. Any recomendations? I looked at the Makita HM1214C too. So many choices. The makita cost about half what the TE1500 costs. Any help would be great. I am growing tired of renting...

I was at Hilti and a guy returned one because it broke 3 days after he bought it.

The salesman practically hit his knees begging him to take a replacement instead of returning it.
