Bosch Introduces the RH1255VC 2" SDS-Max® Rotary Hammer with Turbo Power and Constant Response Circuitry

Rotary hammer has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, delivering 14.1 ft.-lbs. of impact energy while only weighing 27 lbs. 

Mt Prospect, Ill., March 1, 2016 – High-powered tools on the jobsite are becoming more technologically advanced than ever before and the Bosch RH1255VC 2" SDS-Max® Rotary Hammer is no exception. Packed with innovations like Turbo™ Power, Constant Response™ circuitry and Vario-Lock™ positioning, the RH1255VC raises the bar for rotary hammers while weighing less than 27 lbs.

The hammer’s variable speed dial provides two drilling speeds and allows the user to match speed to application. The Vario-Lock™ positioning feature allows users to rotate and lock the chisel with precision.

"Designing the Bosch RH1255VC Rotary Hammer was all about incorporating both technology and power," said Mike Iezzi, product manager, corded products, BOSCH POWER TOOLS. "We incorporated as many Bosch product innovations as possible to benefit the user while still making this one of the lightest and most powerful rotary hammers on the market today."

Weighing just 26.2 lbs., the RH1255VC has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, delivering 14.1 ft./lbs. of impact energy, an impressive feat for such a lightweight 2" SDS-max tool. The increased capacity is a product of the Turbo Power feature, which gives the tool more torque and boosts speed in hammer mode.

To handle that much power, the rotary hammer also features Vibration Control™ technology. This offers a mass-damper control in the hammer mechanism and isolation technology in the handle, which further reduces vibration levels at the user’s hands. That additional control and comfort is increased with the addition of Constant Response circuitry, a feature that offers the user smoother starts, more precise hole placements and constant speed under load.

The Bosch RH1255VC provides the best results on the job with tool and accessory optimization thanks to its industry-standard SDS-max® 2" chuck. The SDS-max Bit System provides tool-free bit changes with automatic bit locking and maximum impact-energy transfer.
