What types of motors are available for products within Hilti Rotary Hammers?
Drills can have a brushed or brushless motor, and the primary difference lies in the mechanism through which the motor powers the drill. Brushed drills use carbon brushes to power the motor mechanically. On the other hand, brushless drills do not have brushes and use an electronic circuit board with magnets to spin the rotor. Between the two, brushless drills last longer, require less maintenance and are also more efficient. Within Hilti Rotary Hammers we carry 7 products with brushless motor and 7 products with brushed motors.
What is the difference between a hammer drill and a rotary hammer?
A hammer drill operates like a traditional drill with a linear percussive action, making it very effective at drilling for masonry projects. On the other hand, rotary hammers create the same hammering motion with a position driven by a crankshaft, producing an even more hammering action. The rotary hammer is heavier and is recommended for professional construction work involving harder concrete. For a light-duty job for soft concrete or brick, a hammer drill is suggested. We carry various types of Hilti Rotary Hammers from top brands with various features such as Depth Gauge, Keyless Chuck, Side Handle, LED Light and Reverse.
