Metabo HPT’s new rotary hammer reduces user fatigue

The 36V MultiVolt Cordless Brushless 1 1/8-inch SDS Plus Rotary Hammer with UVP (model DH3628DA) gives users the added versatility they want in cordless tools for demolition applications. It offers corded performance with the convenience of a cordless tool.

36V MultiVolt Cordless Brushless 1 1/8-inch SDS Plus Rotary HammerIt’s compact and lightweight with plenty of power to drill up to 119 holes per charge and packed with features like User Vibration Protection (UVP), auto stop for preset drilling, LED level with built-in sensor for straight drilling and Reactive Force Control. Like all 36V MultiVolt tools, it accepts any MultiVolt battery for extreme power and can also accept the unique 36V AC Adapter to plug in for all day runtime offering ultimate versatility and power on the go. The DH3628DA is kitted with a 18V/36V 4.0Ah MultiVolt battery, rapid charger, side handle, depth gauge and carrying case (MSRP $429) and is also available as a tool body only– model DH3628DAQ4. MSRP $279.

With Brushless motor technology, this 36V MultiVolt Rotary Hammer delivers professional grade power with an impact energy of 2.3 ft-lbs with up to 950 RPM and 4,300 BPM for high drilling speeds and great demolition performance. There are two speed modes: normal speed from 0-950 RPM and low speed mode from 0-750 RPM for more control. With 3 operating modes; drilling, hammering & hammer drilling, a responsive variable speed trigger and weighing only 7-lbs, it’s easy to use in overhead applications or for all-day use. It accepts SDS Plus shank bits and has a 1 1/8-inch capacity in concrete, ½-inch capacity in steel and 1 1/4-inch capacity in wood. The ergonomic design of the handle grip being in alignment with the drill bit head makes it easier to apply drilling force. Changing bits is fast and easy with a one push bit mounting system. The on-tool LED light is convenient when working in dark spaces.

User Vibration Protection (UVP) from the dynamic vibration absorber and low vibration handle makes drilling easier and more comfortable. Work more efficiently with the auto stop feature that has preset drilling times for consistent repetitive drilling applications. Use the LED level with a built-in sensor that will detect the tilt of the tool and indicate when its straight for precision drilling. This results in less time and money being spent adjusting skewed anchor bolts or re-drilling anchors. Users can work safely if the tool bit is suddenly overburdened during operation as the Reactive Force Control (RFC) automatically engages and stops the motor before the entire tool jerks.

For a cleaner and safer work environment, a cordless dust extraction attachment for this tool is sold separately (part #379135M). This attachment uses the fan inside the tool body for suction, making it a lighter and more compact dust extraction solution. Or the cordless rotary hammer can connect to a vacuum or dust extractor using the optional accessories (#306885 dust collector (B) assembly, #378023 dust collection adapter set (A) or #378054 dust collection cup assembly.

Perhaps the most unique advantage of all 36V MultiVolt cordless tools from Metabo HPT is the ability to be converted to corded use with the revolutionary AC Adapter (model ET36A - sold separately). Users can conveniently get the functionality of two tools (cordless and corded) in one. Use the SDS Plus Rotary Hammer cordless; however, if the battery needs to be recharged or you want to save battery life when near a power source, just plug in with the AC adapter and keep going. The Rotary Hammer is backed by Metabo HPT’s 1-Year warranty* and 2-year Lithium-Ion battery warranty.
