Milwaukee is introducing the first cordless model to use larger SDS Max bits, and it’s doing so in its standard size 18-volt cordless platform. The Milwaukee 2717-22 will be one of the first tools to come with the brand’s new 9.0-Ah High Demand battery packs, and like all tools with the FUEl designation, it features a brushless motor for higher efficiency. Its maximum twist bit size is 19/16 inches, and unlike smaller tools with a rotation-only mode, this is a two-mode tool with rotation-and-hammer for drilling and hammer-only for chipping. The vibration rating for this hammer was not available at the time of publication.
