Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Milwaukee 5263-21 5/8″ SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Preview

It’s the day of rotary hammers, as Milwaukee introduces a new 5/8″ SDS Plus Rotary Hammer in addition to an M18 model we covered previously and a 7/8″ rotary hammer drill that retails for just $199. With regard to the 5263-21 5/8″ model, Milwaukee claims it as the “lightest and most compact” rotary hammer in its class. The tool measures just 10.9″ long and looks like a corded version of the 2605-22 M18 Cordless 5/8″ Rotary Hammer Drill. But get this – it weighs only 4.6 lbs! This is a dream hammer for drilling overhead or when you happen to not have a lot of room to maneuver. Even with its compact form factor, however, this tool has a full 1.5 ft-lbs of impact energy and features an astoundingly fast 0-3700 RPM and 0-4400 bpm. With this kind of performance it’s going to be plenty powerful enough to drill the kind of holes required by professional electrticians, plumbers and other journeymen or professionals.

Milwaukee 5263-21 Rotary Hammer Features

This is one of those rare products that Milwaukee likes to call a “disruptive” technology (when they feel they literally “shake things up” in the industry). By placing this much power into a small frame, this is going to be one of the tools to beat in this category. With more and more emphasis being placed on size reduction, Milwaukee looks to have an advantage – possibly by being as much as 40% lighter than competitive tools. The unit also has a drop motor that further provides a compact frame, and centers the weight for easier use in some positions.

Milwaukee claims all of the technology behind the 5263-21 rotary hammer drill delivers up to 65% faster drill time. On top of that, the company’s Anti-Vibration System (AVS) means you can expect even more comfort when drilling or hammering/chipping overhead.

The new 5/8” SDS Plus Rotary Hammer also comes with the company’s Heavy-Duty 5-year tool/1-year service
warranty.
