#24793 - 04/24/03 07:58 PM Milwaukee Falcon rotary hammer

If anyone out there owns a Milwaukee Falcon D-handle rotary hammer (SDS) have you tried it with bits larger than the recommended max of 3/4 inch? I am tempted to buy a 1 inch bit to drill a slab for conduit. I'm thinking that if I take it easy it will do it. I just wondered if anyone else has tried it with that hammer.
Thanks, Brian

Brian, a Plumber friend of mine has a Falcon and uses a bit to drill poured walls to accomadate a 1" water line. Doesn't seem to have caused any problems with his. Russell

Every time the guys use a larger bit I have to make up the repair shipping tags. They say but "I drill slow and take it easy" The mfg. makes that recommended max size according to their test specs. No more oversize for us picked up used monster drill.
