Three new rotary hammers introduced

Three new rotary hammers for the 1-in. SDS category feature three modes of operation for maximum versatility, a keyless SDS chuck for fast tool-free bit changes, and a variable speed trigger and reverse switch that allow accurate drill bit starting and easy bit/fastener removal. The V28 cordless (0756-22) provides contractors with corded rotary hammer power and versatility in a compact, lightweight package. The corded version of the V28 (5363-21) also features a new system to reduce vibration in repetitive operations, improve comfort and control, and reduce overall operator fatigue. The D-handle model (shown – 5369-21) includes a 7.5 amp motor and large hammer mechanism that delivers 2.4 ft/lb. of impact energy at 5900 blows per minute. All three products are used for hammer drilling, drilling, and chipping.
