Milwaukee Tool launched a new M18 brushless 1″ SDS D-handle rotary hammer, model 2613.
The new cordless rotary hammer is said to drill 3/8″ x 2″ deep holes faster than with corded d-handle rotary hammers.
It can drill up to (100) holes 3/8″ wide and 2″ deep per charge when powered with an XC 5Ah battery.
The M18 brushless rotary hammer measures 15″ long x 6.1″ tall x 3.2″ wide, and weighs 5.3 lbs (tool-only).
There are 3 operating modes – rotary-only, chipping-only, and rotary hammer.
An anti-vibration system (AVS) helps to deliver maximized user comfort.

If you’re looking for a more powerful cordless rotary hammer, Milwaukee launched a new M18 Fuel 1-1/4″ SDS Max rotary hammer a few months ago.
Milwaukee M18 Brushless vs M18 Fuel
Milwaukee Tool launched the 2713 M18 Fuel 1″ SDS Plus rotary hammer 7 years ago, in March 2016. Now, they are launching the 2613 brushless 1″ SDS Plus rotary hammer.
Let’s see how they compare on paper.
Again, 2713 is the older M18 Fuel model, 2613 is the new M18 brushless model. Both are 1″ SDS Plus D-handle rotary hammers.
2713: 2.1 ft-lbs
2613: 1.95 ft-lbs
2713: 1,500 RPM
2613: 1,270 RPM
Max Hammer Rate
2713: 4,400 BPM
2613: 4,580 BPM
2713: 6.05 lbs
2613: 5.3 lbs
The 2613 is shorter and lighter, and has an anti-vibration feature. The 2713 is a Fuel-series tool, with slightly higher impact energy and rotational speed.
Both have a chisel rotation function and LED light.
