Jimbo! You're working way too hard on your 2712 SDS rotary hammer drill lol just push the bit in and turn it a little in the chuck and it will click right into place, don't even think about pulling back on the collar until you remove the bit LOL!!

can the impact driver go anywhere close to keeping up with the M18 hammer drill with same bit size?

Since we are on the subject of concrete, I watched the OTT videos on the 1" Fuel SDS and the Dewalt XR. Did you and Mike come away from those with a preference between the two or are they much the same?

We reviewed them too far apart to say really. From someone elses comparison (Coptool maybe)? I think the Milwaukee is more powerful, Dewalt has longer runtime.

Both were nice to use, Dewalt definitely smaller.

Thanks Dwain, yes, from what I can find for paper specs the Dewalt is smaller and lighter, while the Milwaukee is more powerful. Hard to choose, though Milwaukee has a larger lineup of rotary hammers, both have an SDS Max coming. I don't know which company has a stronger history of concrete drilling; when I think concrete I usually think Bosch, maybe Makita.

Trouble is, Hilti think they're good at other stuff too [emoji6]

Careful!

My Hilti impact destroys my old M18 fuel, and the SF10W18A drill is a monster.

The recip saw is good (I think it's a rebranded makita), the angle grinder is awesome, the circular saw is extremely well built.

The hammer drill and dust extractor are ridiculous. I had the Fuel 1" prior, and although the rated impact energy is a little higher than the Hilti, it wasn't as good.
