Bosch RH328VC-36 Bulldog™ 36V 1-1/8" SDS-plus® Rotary Hammer Delivers on the Promise of Maximum Productivity, Battery Runtime and Comfort

Bosch Active Response Technology teamed with advanced vibration control offers extra protection on the job

Mt Prospect, Ill., March 22, 2016 – All rotary hammers are not created equal, and none offer the one/two punch of 36V power combined with battery runtime, user comfort and innovative features that make the Bosch RH328VC-36 Bulldog™ 36V 1-1/8" SDS-plus® Rotary Hammer a standout.

The Bosch RH328VC-36 Bulldog provides maximum productivity with 2.4 ft/lbs of impact energy for fast, consistent drilling and chiseling in concrete. The vibration-dampened handle provides maximum comfort working all day, but it’s the Active Response Technology that separates the RH328VC-36 from the pack. Active Response Technology is a sensor-based technology that shuts the tool off should the bit get into a bind situation.

The tool also offers Electronic Precision Control (EPC), which provides users precise drilling thanks to the advantage of 70 percent power soft-start. That means virtually no walking and no skating when it's time to drill holes in precise locations. EPC also helps in controlled chiseling/demolition where only a portion of the concrete or brick needs to be removed. The hammer’s multi-function selector includes three operation modes: rotary hammer, rotation only and hammer only.

What’s the advantage of 36 volts? When it comes to drilling holes in concrete all day, the Bosch 36V system provides the highest available all-around drilling speed and battery runtime – exactly what contractors demand. No contractor wants to be stuck on a lift working overhead or far away from fully charged batteries and have the tool stop. The Bosch 36V BAT838 4.0 Ah battery provides added power to meet stringent jobsite requirements in concrete and delivers all-day runtime.

Powerful Motor, Optimum Capacity

The rotary hammer’s powerful four-pole motor is lightweight and compact for a cordless hammer, but is optimized for large-tool performance. Thanks to vibration dampening and dust sealing, the motor is designed for maximum performance and legendary Bosch durability.    

The Bosch RH328VC-36 Bulldog Rotary Hammer includes variable-speed trigger with reversing, which means accurate bit starting as well as another option for removing fasteners or bound bits. Vario-Lock™ Positioning allows the user to rotate and lock a chisel into 40 different positions. An LED light is included for drilling in reduced-light environments.

Typical applications include drilling in concrete for setting anchors for the commercial mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades, drilling in concrete for setting forms/rebar doweling for concrete construction, drilling/chiseling in brick/masonry materials and through-hole drilling in foundation walls for running small-diameter pipe for electrical / plumbing.
