Customer Questions & Answers

what does it mean "tool only"?

Asked by: steve
No battery or charger included. A nice purchase option for those who already own a charger and a sufficient number of batteries.

What's the difference between 7/8 and 1in or 1 1/8

Asked by: john
Those figures represent the maximum diameter holes that each of those rotary hammers are capable of drilling with a solid bit. The 1-1/8" will have a relatively higher impacting force than the 7/8". These are maximum capacities, and each of these hammers will have a lower diameter range that they really are intended for - the 7/8" being more for holes up to around 1/2", while the others being best up to maybe 3/4" or so.

18-Volt M18 Lithium-Ion 7/8 in. Cordless SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer (Tool-Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight but powerful powerful and lightweight, use it for drilling 1/2 inch holes for anchors, very nice dont have to pull cord out for a couple of holes. Anti vibe is nice
Date published: 2013-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect description Nice tool very heavy duty kind of heavy for its size
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little Red Devil Drilled 6 8" holes through a retaining wall using a 7/8 bit before the battery drained. You definitly need two or more batteries if your going to be drilling all day. The chuck head release sleeve tended to get stuck on occasion which prevents the bit from locking. However, this small defect seems to have fixed itself after being used a few times so I will attribute it to newness. The depth rod works, but could use a stronger locking mechanism, three is too much play in my opinion. Bottom line, More powerful than my 18v 7/8 compact Makita rotary and has my corded bulldog collecting dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make pilot holes for t-posts With a 15" long 7/8 bit you can drill a pilot hole in Texas Hill Country limestone big enough to then hammer in a t-post. Light enough to carry anywhere you can carry a t-post and driver. Worth its weight in swear words.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Milwaukee Product! I've had a Bosch Bulldog corded rotary hammer drill for a while and it has been great, but sometimes to drill a few holes it has taken longer to set up than to drill, meaning "taking out the extension cord etc.". This Milwaukee is amazing! I just tested it out and it performed better than my old bosch without all the fuss of a cord! I was a little skeptical, but I'm a believer now! It was easy to add to my M18 fuel collection due to the battery's being interchangeable and all. Cons: A little on the pricey and I wish it was brushless for battery life, but it's pretty good with my XC 4.0 battery pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electricians Savior As an electrician I am always in need of a box chipped in a block wall or need to chip a corner off the end of a wall to wrap EMT/Romex etc. and this thing does it with ease. Drilling is easy and quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the features the tool has I like the anti-vibration handle and the four different settings it has I also like the way it feels when working with the tool not to heavy
Date published: 2014-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful for a cordless I use one of these at work daily for setting drop and wedge anchors, so I bought one for myself. It has plenty of power and will drill a lot of holes using the 4.0 and 5.0 batteries. It works just as good as a corded sds rotary hammer drill. The AVS ( anti vibration system ) works well, saves your arms and hands if your using this thing for a long period of time. Very impressed with this tool.
