Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Cordless Rotary Hammer Reviews

Our cordless rotary hammer reviews include 36V SDS Max models as well as 18V and 12V SDS Plus tools. These tools excel at drilling and chipping concrete. It wasn’t long ago that a cordless SDS-Max rotary hammer simply didn’t exist. That has all changed thanks to rapidly-advancing lithium-ion battery technology. Now, manufacturers have brought products like the Milwaukee M18 SDS-Max rotary hammer and the Hitachi DH52MEY SDS-Max rotary hammer to concrete Pros. We’ve put both into the hands of concrete professionals. It’s easy to see the changes (for the better) a cordless tool like this brings to the jobsite. Professional Cordless Rotary Hammer Reviews We expect this review section to expand greatly over time as more cordless rotary hammer reviews get published. Manufacturers have scheduled even larger cordless rotary and demo tools to enter the jobsite market. We can only imagine that the next generation of batteries will allow for even more power and run-time. So far, both the drilling speed and the length of time you can use these tools has impressed everyone. Will Pros turn to cordless for these larger tools? Let us know what you think!
