SDS-max® Combination Hammer - 1 9/16''

The 1 9/16'' (4 cm) SDS-max® Combination Hammer is a combo rotary hammer and hammer-only tool designed for concrete contractors and professional remodelers who need a powerful and versatile tool. It delivers 6.1 Ft.-Lbs. of impact energy while weighing in at only 15.2 Lbs. The motor is rated at 170 to 340 RPM in rotary mode and 1,200 to 2,750 BPM in hammer mode, which will easily reduce concrete to dust.

SDS-max® Combination Hammer - 1 9/16'' is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modular home tie downs I had to replace the tie down system on a modular home before I could sell it. The work needed to be done in a very tight crawl space and it was hard to find a Contractor who would do the job. The one I found wanted 3000 to do it. I was worried about boring into the old concrete footers to install the tie down rachets. I had 18 holes to drill. Due to the cramped nature of the crawl space, it was difficult to put any downward pressure on the drill. Virtually NO pressure was required. The weight of the tool did the work. This tool allowed us to drill the holes in 1 hour! Putting in the straps and anchors took another 3. After the cost of the tool, bit and tie down material, I saved 2000, and now I have a great tool in my arsenal for future use. Outstanding piece of equipment! Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for professionals I bought one of these 10 years ago and it was time to get another one as the motor is having trouble, so I got another one. I am a plumber and I used this for chipping into the floor to change out tub drains and shower drains in the floor, and drilling into walls for new drain holes. Typically, I used this about five times a month for 2-4 hours at a time (I would give it a break for 10 minutes every 20-25 minutes to cool). This lasted me a year and one month before the motor burned out, and I had no problems up until this point. I sent this in to be replaced at the Lowe's where I purchased it (with an extended 4-year warranty) and they shipped it to their repair facilities. Two weeks later they call and tell me that because I have used this for commercial use the warranty is void and the cost to change the motor is around $220. They tell me that the extended warranty should not have been offered since a business was buying this tool, and they will refund me that cost. I am not sure why someone would buy this for personal and not commercial use as it makes much more sense to rent one of these if you are doing a home project (rental typically around $200-250 for a week). Overall the product itself was okay. I would not recommend this to a professional, and the warranty is nonsense and disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beast I wanted to redo my bathroom. I swung my hammer like John Henry and got nowhere. That tile did not move. When I used that tool ,the tile came off with ease. It can get away from you so take your time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Premature failure I am a professional electrician. I bought this tool about two years ago. Used it once every couple of months when I had to get through a foundation wall or drive a ground rod. Took maybe six uses before it failed on me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Good product. Works as it should. Used it to bust up 20 feet of basement floor to run 3" pvc waste line for a bathroom. Way better than a sledge hammer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not purchase another one Have now gone thru 2 machines and have only drilled about 120 holes at 1-1/8". I had a previous model (EVS ?) from 12-14 years ago that finally gave out (after one major servicing), but I can't even get 6 months from this one - treated exactly the same. Will be returning this one and looking at a different manufacturer going forward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for installing grounding rods This unit with the proper attached tool makes installing eight foot grounding rods easy. The cost is about the same as renting a tool for a week. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
