Details

Flexible and Functional - The Bosch RH540M 1-9/16 In. SDS-max Combination Hammer delivers 6.1 Ft.-Lbs. of impact energy, making it the hardest hitting and fastest drilling rotary hammer in its class. Delivering 38 percent more impact energy than previous generations and up to 20 percent more than other combo rotary hammers in its class, it has a no-load 170 to 340 RPM, while delivering 1,200 to 2,750 blows per minute. This tool easily handles block or tile and drills through tough materials but weighs just over 15 Lbs. and is only 19 In. in length.
SDS-max and Integral Clutch Bring Convenience - Bosch's SDS-max allows for tool-free and one-handed bit changes, making the combo hammer even more versatile. The operator twists the bit and pushes it until it clicks into place and locks automatically, and it's good to go. The system also provides dust protection and a maximum impact energy transfer rate. The tool's integral clutch disengages the torque transmission if the bit gets into a bind situation, providing protection for the tool and less fatigue for the operator. Constant electronics provide soft start and maintain constant speed under load – this also protects against an overload situation.
Features:
  • Tool-free bit changes with automatic bit locking, dust protection and maximum impact energy transfer rate
  • Best-in-class impact energy of 6.1 ft-lbs. provides maximum productivity in all day drilling and chiseling applications
  • Combination dual mode selector knob allows users to select between hammer drilling, chiseling only and the Vario-Lock function
  • Vario-Lock positioning rotates and locks chisel into 12 different positions to optimize working angle
  • Variable-speed dial for controlled drilling and chiseling applications
Includes:
  • 12 Amp 1-9/16 in. SDS-Max Combination Rotary Hammer - RH540M
  • Auxiliary Handle - 2602025062
  • Carrying Case - 3605438536

Best tool I own
I bought this tool primarily for chipping concrete but it also found it very effective for digging holes and trenches for gas lines in the Arizona desert. This hammer pays for itself in full on a weekly basis. I have a massive amount of tools this is the only tool I will not let anybody touch I'm still giving this Hammer 5 Stars even though there's one thing I wish it had but doesn't and that is the ability to lock the trigger button. Sometimes I am working this tool for several hours at a time with very short breaks in between and wears my forearms out. If you don't have one of these get one you'll find plenty of uses for it

Bought it this morning wondering if I'd have enough power. I was pleasantly surprised.

Cuts like a knife.
I was needing to add water, sewage, and electrical stub outs to a shop that had an old concrete foundation. I found some Bosch core bits that would work. So, i purchased this SDS-max drill. IT drill easily through the concrete. I really like the clutch on it. If the bit catches it does not rip you arm off. Also the ability to use a variety of chisels make it even more functional and vestal. The case is perfect for me as it also holds a number of bits and chisels.

I have the sds max hammer drill for over a year it's perfect for drilling and chiseling applications. Power ratio to weight is amazing. Vibration is little on the hand and doesn't wear out your hand. Speed dial makes the tool perfect for any application from small to big .

Exceeded my expectations!
This Bosch hammer drill was so sweet to use, comfortable, with minimal vibration providing me with absolute control while perfectly drilling 1/2" holes in 8" concrete for pedestals. No pressure other than the weight of the tool, was needed. All I had to do was point, set and drill. It was so smooth I could do this all day if need be. This tool has exceeded my expectations. Great tool. Thanks Bosch!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
