Milwaukee Revolutionizes Ceiling Drilling

Introducing a new-to-world solution, Milwaukee delivers the M18 FUEL Overhead Rotary Hammer w/ Integrated Dust Extraction optimized for ceiling drilling. Delivering the lightest weight and minimizing fatigue during use, the 2-in-1 design ensures easy dust compliance and enables the fastest drilling for small ceiling anchors. "This first to world solution bridges the gap between safety managers’ expectations and operators’ preferences for drilling large quantities of small holes in the ceiling," said Brittany Sellnow, Group Product Manager. "Overhead drilling is very fatiguing for the user and our 2-in-1 design delivers improved ergonomics for overhead work compared to traditional rotary hammer and dust extractor attachments, while maintaining Table 1 compliance."

Providing superior ergonomics, the M18 FUEL Overhead Rotary Hammer w/ Integrated Dust Extraction is designed to enhance productivity and comfort during repetitive overhead drilling applications. The built-in dust extractor creates a compact, lightweight tool with optimized balance for less fatigue while offering simplified dust compliance. The new ergonomic side handle, now located near the rear handle, allows for better body posture during application. For improved versatility this handle can be inserted on the left or the right of the tool and collapsed for easy storage. Equipped with an Anti-Vibration system (AVS), this rotary hammer minimizes vibration for maximum comfort.

Driving best-in-class performance, the POWERSTATE Brushless motor delivers more than 100 holes per charge on a Milwaukee M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT CP3.0 battery. This SDS Plus rotary hammer also has the power to drill up to 5/8” holes in concrete and provides the fastest drilling for small ceiling anchors under ½". AUTOSTOP Kickback control offers enhanced safety for the operator by preventing over-rotation in a bind-up. With ONE-KEY, users can choose between default and low sensitivity settings for AUTOSTOP feature, in addition to tool tracking and management.

The integrated dust extractor features AUTOPULSE Filter Cleaning Mechanism that automatically cleans the dust extractor after each use and is designed with HEPA filters. Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day's work on one battery system. The M18 FUEL Overhead Rotary Hammer w/ Integrated Dust Extraction is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 250 solutions.
