The Makita® 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 7/8-Inch Rotary Hammer (tool only) provides your worksite with a versatile tool. Featuring a high-powered motor capable of up to 1,100 rpm, this rotary hammer can generate up to 4,000 bpm for quickly finishing jobs from drilling into concrete to placing bolts in the walls for cabinets. A variable-speed motor increases the SDS-PLUS hammer’s versatility, with a two-finger trigger for better toggling between speeds and tri-mode operation. This tool can rotate independent of hammering or hammer while rotating, and a torque-limiting clutch stops gear damage to improve its durability on tougher jobs. The rubberized handle features a shock-absorbent design, making your Makita cordless rotary hammer ideal for longer jobs. A versatile chisel design offers full 360-degree range and has 40 preset positions. The Makita 18V rotary hammer has an ergonomic, 16-3/8-inch design and STAR Computer Protection Protocols™ to stop overheating and overloading. The LXT maximizes battery life because Makita built the tool around battery usage, and the Rapid Optimum Charger (not included) recharges batteries in as little as half an hour. This Makita 18V rotary hammer accepts all SDS-PLUS bits and is compatible with all STAR-rated Makita 18V batteries.
