Typical Applications:

Rotary hammer drills can combine rotation with a hammer action, which allows you to drill through tough materials. SDS are used in a similarly way, but the slotted chuck drive system means they are designed to use specialist drill bits. Many models of drills have a mode selection which will allow you to choose between a rotary action, hammer function or both.

Cordless hammer drills are employed in many fields, such as:
• Construction works
• Demolition works
• Plumbing systems installation
• Electrical systems installation
• Carpentry industry
