Bosch has released a new cordless rotary hammer that it says has the power of a corded tool. The concrete rotary hammer is called the Profactor 18V SDS-max 1-5/8″ Rotary Hammer (GBH18V-40C) and outperforms its corded counterpart, the Bosch 11264EVS, according to Bosch. 

Features listed:

Cordless Design: Delivers corded hammer performance, with 6.7 Ft.-Lbs. of impact energy (EPTA) powered by a single 18V CORE18V 8 Ah or 12Ah battery, making concrete work easier.

KickBack Control: Reduces the risk of sudden tool reactions in binding conditions. 

Soft Start and Controlled RPM: Adjusts the tool rpm and bpm for more controlled drilling and chiseling applications when working with softer materials like brick and tile. 

Anti-Vibration System: Helps to reduce tool vibration due to the longer air cushion built into the hammer tube and dampeners added in the handle. 

Lock-On/Lock-Off Button: Keeps the tool running when locked on (hammer mode only) and helps prevent accidental activation of the tool trigger when locked off.
