Bosch RHH181 SDS Rotary Hammer video review


Recommended Posts

What is the difference between the 181 and the 182?


...the 182 doesn't exist...? :)


The 180 is the older model. It doesn't have the chipping feature. I think that's the only difference. Well, I think it also comes with the older lithium batteries.


That's cool you got the Bosch brushless. It looks so light. That's a good price for $389. Amazing how quick it drills the larger holes. Good video



Thanks, yeah the price was really good.

They released this unit this year but the bummer is they didn't release it as a brushless tool for some reason. It's the same thing with Milwaukee's oscillating mutl-tool why did they release a brushed version? I guess it might have been the quickest way to get in into production and out to retailers in a reasonable amount of time? Dewalt had their brushless unit out before Milwaukee when it came to multi-tools. Like the earier Bosch version it lacks a chipping feature that's pretty lame if I'm spending a ton of money on a SDS drill I want to have some sort of chipping function.

I bought a Bosch RHH181 last week. I had initially bought the Milwaukee M12 fuel rotary hammer, but after about 4 weeks trying to like it in work, I found it too slow at drilling.

I liked the look of the bosch, and it seemed a great performer from reading and watching videos about it.

I demoed it against the Makita brushless model, but preferred the bosch, and it was faster.

The Bosch eats through concrete. Great drill.
