Details

The Milwaukee 5/8 in. SDS Plus 5.5 Amp Rotary Hammer is the most compact rotary hammer in its class weighing only 4.6 lb. and only 10.9 in. in length. Weighing almost 30% lighter than the competition, this hammer is ideal for drilling overhead and in tight spaces, yet it's powerful enough to drill most types of holes drilled by the professional trades.

  • 2-Mode operation provides versatility, allowing rotary hammer and rotation only
  • Mechanical clutch protects tool when bit binds up
  • Compact and lightweight for reduced fatigue and maneuverability in tight spaces
  • AVS (Anti-Vibration System) delivers maximum comfort

great small hammer
Compared to some of the older small hammers I have this one is "like butter" in comparison. Good power and good solid grip. Value for cost plus easy to get bits I rated it a 5. Paid for its self in productivity in 1 day.

Great drill
This is a great drill for most mason style drilling applications. It is much nicer than the old pistol style that I have used for years. Saved a bunch of money buying reconditioned and after my first job they would each look the same.

Good deal on a good product
Nice compact set up, good weight for the power, rugged case. Extremely pleased for the cost. Only complaint is that everything else I've bought through CPO has looked brand new, so I was surprised when this drI'll had some bumps and bruises. Nothing of consequence, adds character really. Still a great drill, I never intended to put it in a museum.

It worked so good I was almost dissapointed..
I urgently needed a replacement hammer drill after my old hammer drill literally started falling apart on me (chuck split into pieces) during a small home improvement project. Very frustrated that I had just a couple more drill holes to finish the job and all the trouble that went into drilling with chuck constantly slipping before it broke, I decided it was time to get a quality drill. Did a bit of research as I was unclear as to why the big price difference between models, I realized this little 5/8" SDS Plus was the right fit for me. Anxiously waiting for my special delivery, I was pleasantly surprised of the very short shipment time. Now I was ready to continue with my unfinished project. I did a little mental preparation before the first use remembering how hard it was to work my previous drill.. then I could not believe how easy it was to drill in some anchor holes into a grouted-in CMU wall. The rest of the job was almost effortless, that is why I mentioned I was "almost disappointed" I was mentally and physically prepared to put some "umph" into it, but it was totally unnecessary. The rest is history as I am proud to welcome this new little guy to the family and looking forward to the good times together.. (still need to name him though).

Can you drill a 1 inch hole thru a chimney with this drill
Vern on Nov 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Vern,

Unfortunately, this rotary hammer will be too small to complete that job. For help selecting a rotary hammer, please contact Raymond Charles at 1-866-577-3014 ext: 27108

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
