The ToolSelect community is abuzz at the news of the world’s first sub-compact rotary hammer, the M12™ cordless ½” SDS Plus rotary hammer from Milwaukee.

ToolSelect members are constantly looking for the latest developments in tools and technology, so any “first” is going to generate interest. Milwaukee’s new rotary hammer weighs 3.9 pounds and is nine inches long, up to 65% lighter than other cordless hammer drills. The tool is designed for use in tight spaces and over long periods of time.

“We continue to innovate in the rotary-hammer category to provide new solutions for our core users based on what they need to accomplish every day,” says Rick Gambaccini, group product manager with Milwaukee Tool. “This is the world’s first sub-compact rotary hammer for the professional trades, bringing users a cordless tool in what used to only be available in corded.”

The rotary hammer gives users 0-800 RPM, 0-5,350 BPM and, according to Milwaukee, a drilling speed up to four times faster than competitors. The tool can drill more than 55 holes per charge.

Milwaukee’s electro-pneumatic design lets the tool drill up to ½” holes in concrete and masonry. The rotary hammer features two-mode operation—rotary hammer and hammer-only—and uses REDLINK™ technology for full communication between the tool, battery and charger.
The M12™ cordless ½” SDS Plus rotary hammer comes with two RED LITHIUM™ M12™ XC batteries, charger and carrying case.

“Our community loves firsts, and our community loves cordless hammer drills,” says Gerry Barnaby, Director of Excitement with ToolSelect. “This new rotary hammer from Milwaukee matches both those criteria, and we’re excited to see the discussions and reviews generated by this new tool from Milwaukee.”
