Product Boasts Innovative Bosch Brushless CORE Package


Las Vegas, February 5, 2013 – Bosch Power Tools is announcing the next generation RHH181 18V Li-Ion SDS-plus® Rotary Hammer featuring the brand’s innovative CORE brushless technology package and new chiseling functionality to tackle multiple applications with one tool. The new hammer delivers the ideal combination of drilling and chiseling in a light weight and compact size, while the brushless EC motor technology extends tool life and increases tool efficiency.


The Bosch CORE technology includes a brushless EC motor, customized on-board electronics and next generation Bosch CoolPack batteries. The brushless EC motor delivers up to 30 percent more power, eliminating limitations of conventional motors and significantly reducing the need for tool maintenance. It lasts longer and runs cooler while its integrated electronics allow for superior control and protection against tool and battery damage in demanding applications.



New Bosch CoolPack batteries have a unique design that incorporates advanced, heat-conductive housing that significantly reduces heat build-up while in use. This results in a more efficient battery that stays cooler and lives up to 100 percent longer. 


And with new 2.0 and 4.0Ah battery options, you get up to 65 percent more run time.


The RHH181 18V Li-Ion Rotary Hammer also features a new chisel function and Bosch-engineered pneumatic hammer mechanism that delivers optimal performance and chisel power. Thanks to the new CORE technology and 4.0Ah battery, the new tool can drill more than 150, ¼ - inch x 1-1/2 – inch holes in concrete with one battery charge. 


The RHH181’s best-in-class size to weight ratio makes eases operation for the user and ensures necessary impact is still delivered. The 3-mode selector switch lets users choose between rotary hammer, rotation only and chisel mode. The Vario-Lock™ rotates the chisel into various positions for chiseling work at any angle.  Additional features include an LED work light to illuminate work areas during low light applications and large soft-grip handle for reduced fatigue during extended use.


Engineered to never let the user down, the Bosch CORE 18V Rotary Hammer will be available in February 2013 through authorized dealers nationwide. The RHH181-01 comes with two 4.0Ah battery packs and retails for $499, while the RHH181BL, sold in a L-Boxx 2 complete with inlays retails for $249.
