DeWalt’s 36V cordless package seems like a perfect match for a 1″ SDS rotary hammer, so it’s no surprise that they recently released one. And it’s a beast, pushing 2.0 ft-lbs (not in-lbs) of impact energy.
This is power enough, according to DeWalt, to drill 1″ holes in concrete.
The DC233KL — as its known to DeWalt — is variable speed, delivering 0-4,400 blows per minute at 0-1,150 RPM. It weighs a hefty-by-drill/driver-standards-but-light-by-rotary-hammer-standards 7.8 poinds and features a depth rod and 360-degree-swivelling side handle.
The kit version comes complete with two 36V batteries and a “heavy-duty” carry box. Street pricing starts around $675.
