Makita’s new 18-volt rotary hammer, the LXRH011, drills holes while cleaning up the mess with an attached vacuum. The high-efficiency brushless motor makes it possible for the tool and vacuum to be powered by a single battery. This variable-speed tool takes SDS-plus bits and has three modes: rotary hammer, drill, and hammer-only. The vacuum is equipped with a HEPA filter and shuts off with a two-second delay, ensuring that all of the dust is collected. The vacuum can be removed when it’s not practical to use. Kit includes two batteries, charger, side handle, depth gauge, and carry bag. ¦ Price: $599. 714-522-8088. makitatools.com.
