Firing their next volley in the ever-increasing-voltage wars, Bosch recently released their 36v 1″ SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer. This is a serious drill, with 1″ solid bit capacity and 2.5″ (!) core bit capacity capable of delivering 2.2 ft-lbs. (not in-lbs.) of impact force.
Other standard features include:
- a 3-mode selector for rotation only, rotary hammer, or hammer only
- a variable speed reversing trigger
- tool-free bit changes with automatic bit locking, dust protection, and maximum impact energy transfer rate
- and an integral clutch to help minimize torque reaction
It also ships with a 360-degree auxiliary handle, a carrying case, a depth gauge, two Litheon batteries, and a 1-hour charger.
Along with all those hefty features comes a hefty price tag: Pricing online starts around $700.
