The new BHC 18 Rotary Hammer has the best power-toweight ratio in its class. Combined with a compact and ergonomic C-handle design, the BHC’s light weight and low vibration makes for efficient and comfortable one-handed use, whether for extended periods or even overhead applications. And since a tool like this is going to be pushed to its limits day after day, we’re backing it up with Festool’s exclusive Service All-Inclusive®


Built for the Toughest Demands.

We've designed the BHC to withstand the toughest abuse you can dish out, with a powerful motor that's built to last. You'll reach your limit before this drill does.

Compact, Yet Packs a Punch.

The compact C-handle design delivers a streamlined pressure point, resulting in greater control and more comfortable handling, while maintaining power and capability, even for hard-to-reach applications.
