Asked by propertyguy October 9, 2020

Hi there! Our SDS Plus SLEDGE™ Mortar Knife is designed for use with SDS Plus rotary hammers.

is there a belt clip for this hammer drill?

Asked by Steven November 8, 2019

Hi Steven! There is not a belt clip included with our M12 FUEL 5/8" SDS Plus Rotary Hammer.

Can it drive 8’ ground rods?

Asked by D89 October 5, 2019

No. This rotary hammer does not have a hammer only function.

Can you attach a flat chisel to this and use it to remove ceramic tile?

Asked by Kevin April 3, 2019


What's the additional slot used for in the hard case? Located below the battery charger slot.

Asked by IRiesee December 20, 2018

The product doesn't have any additional slot in the hard case.

Is the m12 sds plus available with an OSHA compliant dust extractor with HEPA filter? Thanks,

Asked by Bob June 13, 2018

Yes, but has to be purchased separately.

Have Chisel Mode?

Asked by AlexWA November 11, 2017

No the drill is always in spin mode. You can turn on and off the hammer mode but the tip will always spin.

What is the impact energy (ft lbs.) of this tool?

Asked by ToolGeek129 June 12, 2017

Milwaukee tools, "tools like this don't have impact energy specs" you are uneducated. Please look at all the other rotary hammers on the market. They all have impact energy specs, including ryobi and dewalt. Impact energy is expressed in joules or ft lbs (not just torque). You represent Milwaukee tools, please educate yourself.

Will this mix buckets of drywall mud

Asked by drw June 5, 2017

Will i be able to use a 1/2" bit to make holes for 3/8" dropins? Also 3/4" bit for 3/8" double expansion

Asked by Jimmy95 April 10, 2017

I use it to set 1/4 and 3/8 anchors. Works really well in masonry and does a fair job in precast concrete. If your going to spend all day drilling 1/2 inch holes in hard concrete you might opt for the M18.

Awesome little pack a punch hanmerdrill
Customer review from logo
Awesome gun backed by 5 year warranty. This little guy drills all the way up to 3/4 hole and as en electrician that's most of the time all you need, if you need any bigger to make holes for pipes then you obviously use company tools but this little guy drills all the holes you need with a 4amp battery you can drill many holes without having to recharge

I always been skeptical about cordless tools, it was always air or corded tools. A friend and Milwaukee proved me wrong, own a full set of M12 tools, just added the Rotary Hammer, tried it and I loved it, did 6 holes 3/8" the same as using my corded, less the hassle of having a cord. Thank you Milwaukee.

I am a big user of Milwaukee tools. Much to my wife's dismay I own far too many. Until now I have always been well pleased with their performance. This unit however had issues from the start. When drilling a 3/4 inch hole through a 4 inch concrete floor the unit would bog down and some protective circuit would shut down the motor. The torque generated by this thing is so small it is almost useless. In comparison the Fuel Hammer Drill will twist your wrist off before it will stop. This unit can be shut down with no drilling pressure on the handle at all. Very disappointing. Returned to HD for a refund and will look for other corded options, as my cordless tools are all the M12 platform and I am not investing another fortune in a new cordless system.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Great product from Milwaukee tools. I had much need for a smaller concrete drill to set smaller anchors and use smaller drill sizes the m12 has a decent grip for access and ease with smaller job requirements from DIY to Commercial use the M12 has two Modes hammer drill mode and stand alone mode but comes with a nice 4 amp battery for good run time. when using it it drilled holes into hard masonry and concrete. One thing i would point out is the photo with this product showed a m18/ m12 dual charger but the kit came with a M12 only charger but that is a Minor issue great product Milwaukee tool

Powerful SDS Hammer Drill
Quality :
Value :
This SDS hammer drill packs substantial power into a small package. The batteries are light and small, and fit neatly into the base of the unit forming a stable base to stand the drill on. They have a rubberized edge that keeps to tool where you put it when you set it down. Converting between standard drilling and hammering requires a simple quarter turn of the side dial. As can be seen in the photo, I purchased the drill bit chuck attachment to make use of all my drill bits. Testing it on a block of 2x4, it ploughed into the wood very effectively, though the motor began to strain as the bit cut deeper into the wood. It's a 12 volt tool, so motor strain driving a heavy bit probably is to be expected. The tool fits nicely in the hand, and is very light weight. It has a battery charge LED light system on the handle that indicates the charge level of the battery when the trigger is pulled slightly. A nice LED also illuminates to light the work. Considering the hammering capacity of the tool to break up concrete, I am surprised that it is not equipped with an optional side handle to aid in control with vibration. The kit includes two lithium ion batteries, a nice charging base and carrying case. I think a basic chisel for breaking up concrete would have been helpful, but probably is not expected for such a specialized tool. Overall, the quality is superb and performance is excellent.

12 volt Goodness.
Quality :
Value :
This is more then I was expecting,12 volt battery technology has come a long way and this Rotary hammer is a great tool if you need one.It uses the SDS and SDS+ bits for drilling concrete and it drills holes very quickly. You have two modes,Hammer drill or straight drill depending on your need.Its light but powerful and outlasts my 18 volt Hammer drill. Recharge takes an hour but it does come with 2 extended run 4,0 batteries and charger. Don't let 12 volt fool you this is a work horse and I Highly recommend it.
