About This Product

The MILWAUKEE® M12 FUEL™ 5/8” SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Kit provides up to 75% faster drilling, up to 70% less vibration, and up to 2X more runtime and the largest SDS Plus bit capacity in its class. Milwaukee has combined its exclusive POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack, and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence to deliver a 12V rotary hammer that rivals compact 18V tools on the market today. At only 10” long and 3.9 lbs, this tool provides performance and runtime that is comparable to a much larger tool, at a fraction of the size and weight. The electropneumatic design allows for drilling of up to 5/8” holes in concrete and masonry. For maximum versatility, regardless of application or orientation, the tool also features 2-mode operation, rotary hammer and rotation only. The kit includes 2 M12™ REDLITHIUM™ XC 4.0 Extended-Capacity Battery Packs, an M12™ Lithium-ion Battery Charger, and plastic carrying case. The MILWAUKEE® M12™ Soldering Iron delivers fast application speeds by reaching operational temperature in under 18 seconds. The heat indicator utilizes REDLINK™ INTELLIGENCE to notify users when the tool is ready-to-use and safe-to-store, eliminating the guesswork. The 3-stop pivoting head provides unmatched access by allowing users the ability to adapt the tool for the application and solder in more confined spaces. The M12™ Soldering Iron powered by REDLITHIUM™ battery technology delivers up to 40 minutes of run-time on a M12™ Compact Battery Pack.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi DanG, yes, there is a mode specifically for rotary hammering. For rotary hammering, you can turn the mode selector so the arrow points to the hammer and twist drill symbol! - Milwaukee Tool Social Team

          M12 Fuel SDS Hammer Drill
          This M12 Fuel SDS drill is amazing for basic drilling. I use mine as an electrician to drill all of my whole in masonry block for my tapcons. Plenty of power. Battery lasts days. And it’s lightweight. Convenient and easy to be climbing up and down ladders all day drilling holes and not having to carry a 15lb ads drill all day or dragging a cord around everywhere I go.

          Absolute Garbage
          I purchased this last year and have used once or twice. Today i had to use it only for it to flash green.. Further research shows the heating element inside melted. What a waste of money. I have a lot of Milwaukee tools and this is not the level of quality i expected.

            Absolute garbage
            Bought this for a small project, get it home and it won't heat up. No "flashing green lights" to say it's heating, and it doesn't heat. Perhaps it has something to do with the busted tip and these little white pieces that fell out when I went to change it out. TOTAL crap. Fire your QC people

              They re-designed the collar/crown.
              Looks like they redesigned the collar/crown from the previous generation. Hopefully this stops the melting issue. I saw this was a newer model and decided to give it a try.

                Hopefully this one will last longer than my last one...
                Hopefully this one will last longer than my last one probably only got 3-4 years out of it. It obviously works well or I would not repurchase product again.

                Unbelievable that this product is still being sold
                Same issue that everyone is posting about. Cullet melted resulting in total failure. Not only is it unsafe , but it’s incredibly easy from a design standpoint to foresee how this would happen. I don’t understand how there hasn’t been a update to this tool with metal parts , especially at the price. It’s an awesome tool before this problem, what a shame

                  Bought this to replace my butane soldering iron. For working behind aircraft instrument panels with limited access it works great. Heats up fast, the angle head is a nice feature for tight areas. Replaced a couple of rotary dimming light switches using a CP2.0 battery. Would recommend the CP3.0 battery. Like a butane iron you turn it on, perform your soldering and turn it off. No dragging a electrical cords or taking a chance of burning something with the butane exhaust.

                    Excellent portability
                    I bought this thing to be able to solder wires on the the go. I use it at Maricopa live steamers on trains, and small buildings. Super portable for small led lights to bigger 12g wires is what I’ve used it on. Having the bigger battery is great for standing up when using it on a desk or workbench. Love this thing.

                      AWESOME Tool!!!
                      Sometimes a regular hammer drill just does not get the job done, regardless of the volts it has; and I’m definitely not knocking on the M12 nor M18 hammer drills. When that happened to me, I when ahead with purchasing the next level up M12 SDS-Plus Rotary hammer! NOW this gets the job done, tons of power turning and chipping at concrete, smooth, not as much vibration as I thought it would have! I also paired it with the M12 Hammervac, WHAT A COMBO! No debris flying all over the place, breathing that stuff in! Keeps you and the persons arohnd you safe, while maintaining the jobsite clean!

                        Use tool for short periods at a time
                        I didn’t know that this was a common issue until that happened to me. Are use this to build drones, which can take two hours or less depending. I also do electrical wiring on cars. Awesome tool if they made the collar metal. After A few months, my collar melted also. I sent an email to Milwaukee never never got a response back. I hope I get a response here.
