What’s better than a rotary hammer to power through hardened concrete? How about one that cleans up after itself? Enter Bosch’s 11250VSRD rotary hammer with dust collection system.
The dust collection head telescopes as far as 5″ from the tool to keep it at the point of penetration. The dust collection unit uses a replaceable microfilter to provide “dust free drilling.” With the addition of the dust collection system, the total package weight just 7.4 lbs.
The rotary hammer itself can operate either as rotary hammer or a simple drill. It draws up to 6.1A to provide 1.8ft-lbs of impact energy from 0 to 4,400 beats per minute. It uses the 3/4″ SDS-Plus bit system to lock in bits without tools, and the variable speed trigger allows you to spin those bits from 0 to 1000 RPM.
Priced around $250, the dust collection system of the 11250VSRD adds $100 to the price of buying a similar tool without dust collection like Bosch’s 11250VSR rotary hammer, but then again isn’t it worth the extra dough to work as a contractor rather than a maid?
