Does the rotary hammer has a setting to be used as a chipping or chisel gun?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Calvara
No, this size does not have a chipping mode, we recommend at least a 1in for that application.

Customer Reviews

5/8 in. SDS Rotary Hammer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miwaukee is good! And getting better everyday!! GO RED!! Have the Hilti Te-7 and I wasn't impressed with the speed of the drill. Was in Home Depot and stumbled onto the Miwaukee 5/8 hammer drill and purchased it because the price was right. Took it to work and I love it. It was fast and it hits good! GREAT PRODUCT THUS FAR!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mini on steroids Now I may sound like a Milwaukee sales rep but I am not affiliated or sponsored by them in any way. I use this machine daily for overhead and general drilling of 6-8mm (1/4"-3/8") holes in high quality concrete on a major hospital construction site site. We picked this model after a sales rep let us test it alongside other larger Milwaukee models. We where surprised of the drilling efficiency of this small, low weight model. The actuall model we have is the 230V equivalent, the PLH 20. We drill mostly in concrete hollow beams with a wall thickness of around 2" and with 6mm and 8mm drill bits. As it turns out, this aggressive little machine is faster than the other machines we have compared with so far, mains driven and rechargeable, new and old, including significantly larger machines from DeWalt, Hilti, Bosch, Makita etc. The small Milwaukee breaks through in about 3-5 seconds while others typically need 6-12 seconds! The only negative thing I have to say is not about the machine itself, but the lack of an available integrated dust removal, preferably one that builds on the strengths of this machine; its small size and low weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I love this little rotary hammer. The power is amazing for such a small tool. It"s the best small rotary hammer on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is AWESOME for 3/8" anchors I needed to secure a 2x4 to concrete floor in my garage using red head 3/8" anchors. at First I was thinking of buying Bulldog Extreme, I was worried that this drill will be too week. Boy was I wrong, I drilled 2 6" deep holes through 2x4 and into concrete in less then one minute (and I was taking my time). This thing is very light and very powerful (just what I wanted). For the price you can't go wrong. I highly recommend this

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome I only took a star off because I feel it should have a hammer only setting for chisel bits. But a very light and strong drill for the price nice long cord. Perfect for my pre war apartment Wall jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light weight but powerful drill Purchased this drill to attach 40 pews to the floor of my church sanctuary. Drilling though Porcelain tile and deep down 4 inches into the concrete beneath. I used a 8" x 1/4" concrete bit. Drilled dozens and dozens of holes over course of several days without a problem. To avoid the bit "wable" other reviewers noticed I realized you need to press down and release the bit from its upward hammer in and out cycle, then the pit spins up without any "wable". Great tool.... cut through the tile and the concrete like butter and did not get noticeable hot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A LOT of bit wobble I'm getting A LOT of bit wobble with this drill. I just bought it and have tried three different brand new bits and I'm getting very inconsistent performance. The 6" bits all wobble about an 1/8" in all directions. I bought one from Home Depot and exchanged for another, both have the same issue. How much bit wobble should be expected?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase This drill is awesome for being light weight and works like the big rotary hammer drills, I do a lot of concrete drilling, drilling holes upto 1 1/2" deep using 3/16 tap con drill bits
