Rotary Hammer Aims To Enhance Productivity

Milwaukee Tool announces the release of the The M18 FUEL 1-3/4” Rotary Hammer w/ ONE-KEY generates the power of a 15amp corded hammer of the same size, features an electromagnetic clutch for maximum control and safety during use, and is capable of chipping a 1/2 ton of material per charge. Equipped with ONE-KEY, users can also easily track, manage, and secure the rotary hammer through the ONE-KEY app on their mobile device.

“Despite the growth of cordless rotary hammer solutions on the jobsite, there remain a wide array of larger capacity tasks that require the use of 1-3/4” rotary hammers. Unfortunately, because the larger cordless solutions available lack the capacity and speed needed for these applications, users continue to turn to their corded units,” said Kevin Gee, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Due to the vast advantages of M18 FUEL cordless technology, we’re able to change all of that with the best performing rotary hammer in our company’s history, which not only boasts the benefits of no cords or generators but also drills faster than corded.”

When equipped with Milwaukee’s new M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 Battery, the rotary hammer can chip up to a ½ ton of material per charge, eliminating the hassle of cords while exceeding the performance of corded. The new HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 Battery provides 50% more power, runs 50% cooler, and delivers 33% more run-time than the M18 REDLITHIUM HD9.0 Battery.

The new tool is also engineered with a proprietary AUTOSTOP electromagnetic clutch for the safest drilling and demolition experience. This clutch kicks in during lock up to prevent over rotation, minimizing potential rotation to only 45 degrees versus the typical 360 degrees of rotation users often experience with other hammers in this class.

Through ONE-KEY users can track, manage, and secure the rotary hammer. The ONE-KEY Integrated Tool Tracking functionality allows users to identify where and when their rotary hammer was last seen on the jobsite. Records and locations will update when any device with the ONE-KEY app comes within 100ft of the hammer, allowing the user to quickly pinpoint missing tools. Integrated Tool Security provides an extra layer of protection to prevent theft and tampering. With Simplified Tool and Equipment Management, users also have a central place to take inventory of their rotary hammer and all other tools and equipment and keep detailed records of all inventory to easily build a budget and manage spend.

With the launch of this new hammer, Milwaukee continues to be the only power tool manufacturer to provide a full line of rotary hammer solutions all on one battery platform. The new M18 FUEL 1-3/4” SDS Max Rotary Hammer is part of the M18 System, now offering more than 175 power tool products for unrivaled productivity.
