Detailed Description

Festool BHC 18 Rotary Hammer Drill

Festool's compact - yet powerful - 18-volt rotary hammer drill easily handles the toughest drilling jobs in concrete, wood and steel. Its extremely efficient brushless motor delivers the maximum power possible from an 18-volt battery. Its compact C-handle design provides a concentrated pressure point allowing for superb control even in hard-to-reach applications. Even though the drill weighs only 5.7 lbs., this tool packs an extremely powerful punch.

The drill's exceptional vibration dampening feature helps insulate the user's hand from the constant pounding of the hammer drill action, thus reducing operator fatigue even during prolonged use.

The BHC 18 uses SDS-Plus shank drill bits. (What's SDS-Plus?)

SDS-Plus is a special drill bit shank used in heavy duty drilling applications. It has a round shank with two keyways and two indentations.
You can also use Festool Centrotec Chuck and bits with the SDS-Plus to Centrotec Adapter(all sold separately).

Standard drill bits are NOT compatible with the BHC 18. All SDS-Plus and Centrotec bits MUST be impact rated for use with the BHC 18.

The Basic Model comes without batteries or charger. If you already own an 18-volt Festool cordless tool, you can use on the batteries and charger from that tool.
