Bosch's RH850VC Rotary Hammer offers class-leading vibration control

Bosch Power Tools has unveiled a new drilling hammer that, according to European Power Tool Association guidelines, is the hardest hitting and fastest hammers in its class.

The power tools brand lifted the lid on the new Bosch RH850VC 1-7/8-inch SDS-max Rotary Hammer, which it claims brings vibration control technology to new heights, featuring three levels of vibration control that provide up to 60 per cent less vibration than the tool's previous model.

The RH850VC provides a total of 9.3 foot-pounds of impact energy, amounting to up to 35 per cent more impact energy than key competitors. Bosch has worked on enhancing the hammer’s productivity during all-day use, providing optimised RPMs ranging from 150-305, BPM's from 1,380-2,760 and a 13.5 amp motor.

The vibration control, however, is the stand-out element of the hammer’s impressive capabilities. The first of the three levels provides a longer air cushion, while the second comprises a tuned mass damper and the third level controls the tool's decoupled main handle, absorbing vibrations before they reach users' hands. The result of these stages is 15 to 60 per cent less vibration than similar competitors.

As a handy solution for busy tradesman, the RH850VC’s SDS-max bit system allows for tool-free bit changes, but with an automatic bit lock once the accessory has been put in place. The hammer’s chisel can be adjusted into 12 different positions, giving a wide range of working angles.
