Milwaukee Breaks Rocks All the Livelong Day
Milwaukee has designed the Sledge Chisels to stand up to serious concrete abuse. And, they say these chisels will stand the test of time without you needing to deal with the hassle of re-sharpening. In fact, the self-sharpening tip maintains its cutting edge over the life of the chisel.
Milwaukee starts by using a high-grade forged steel for max durability and extended life. Then, they’ve gone and reinforced the edges to minimize wear over the life of the chisel.
Right off the bat, we could see the unusual shape of their flat chisels. While the typical SDS-Plus or SDS-Max chisel from Bosch features completely flat faces, Milwaukee uses a lot more surface area. The design looks like reinforcement that should help strengthen the entire surface of the chisel. Hilti has done this for years with a reinforced outside edge, but Milwaukee continued that concept through the very center of the bit. Time and testing will tell if this really helps these Milwaukee Sledge chisels last longer.
