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?

    Looks pretty cool actually. I bet it works well when drilling drywall, MDF, and other particularly messy materials as well. Although, for the same price I’d probably opt for a separate drill (possibly cordless), a shop vac, and materials to make a similar jig.

    Whoooo yeah! More weight. Just what I need.

    My wife would love it if I bought this.

    Cheapie DIY version: Get yourself a PVC tee or wye and attach your shop vacuum to the branch. Hold it so the trunk encircles your bit and you have yourself a cheapie dust collector. Use one with a small breaker indoors too; screw on an L bracket to step on and hold it down.

    You’re welcome!

    I used a hilti drill with this attachment a couple years ago. The drill was kind of ‘L’ shaped a had a little gear port on the bottom that turned the gears inside the attachment which vacuumed the dust. Exactly the same as this!

    Funny, after years of pounding through concrete walls to run wires, I never had one single complaint about the dust. The noise though … now that’s a different story; a unionized government worker can hear that “insufferably awful noise” from the next building down the street.

    Might be useful if you’ve only got a few holes to drill but not if you have hundreds to drill like say installing theater seats. For that you need a shop vac.

    Now for just a few small holes, place your bit, put a little foam shaving cream around it then drill, wipe off, throw away. Or seal in a bag if it is something hazardous, then throw away.
