Milwaukee 4-Cutter Bit Review

Milwaukee 4-Cutter Bit Review

If you’re a professional contractor, DIY enthusiast, or just someone who frequently works with concrete, brick, or stone, you know the importance of having the right tools. Two of our favorites for drilling into masonry are the Milwaukee 4-cutter masonry bit and the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill. In this blog post, we’ll discuss why this bit/drill combo are a match made in heaven for any masonry project.

We've also got a video review of the 4-Cutter Masonry Bit and the Rotary Hammer Drill at the bottom of this post, including a demo of how to drill through concrete with rebar reinforcement.

The Milwaukee 4-Cutter Bit is not your average bit

The Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit is a durable and reliable masonry bit designed specifically for drilling through tough materials like concrete, brick, and stone. The four cutter design provides an aggressive drilling action that can easily cut through even the hardest masonry materials – including concrete with rebar reinforcements. Additionally, the 4-Cutter Masonry Bit has a reinforced flute geometry that reduces vibration and makes it easier to drill straight holes.

  • Up to 5x longer life in concrete with rebar

  • Up to 20% more holes per battery charge
  • Sharp centering tips for exact spot drilling
  • 4-cutter design prevents lock-up in rebar, reducing downtime

Solid Head Carbide

One of the key features of the Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit that sets it apart is its carbide construction. Carbide is a strong and durable material that can withstand the high-speed drilling and heavy impacts required for drilling into masonry. Compared to traditional masonry bits made from steel or high-speed steel, carbide bits last longer and maintain their sharpness over time, reducing the need for frequent bit changes.

Precision Where it Matters

Another thing we love about the Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit is its precision-ground tip. The tip is specifically designed to start on contact, meaning you don’t have to apply as much pressure to get the bit started. This helps to reduce the risk of the bit slipping or wandering, which can cause damage to the surface you’re drilling into or lead to an uneven hole.

 

Milwaukee Rotary Hammer Drill… the Perfect Match

When it comes to pairing the Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit with a drill, the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill is the perfect match. The rotary hammer drill is specifically designed for drilling into masonry and other tough materials. Unlike a standard drill, which only rotates the bit, a rotary hammer drill uses a piston-driven mechanism that also provides a hammering action to break up the material being drilled.

Features of The Rotary Hammer Drill

The Milwaukee rotary hammer drill is known for its power and durability. It has a high-performance motor that delivers up to 4,500 blows per minute, allowing you to drill through even the toughest masonry materials quickly and efficiently. Additionally, the drill has a mechanical clutch that protects the motor and gear train from damage in case the bit gets jammed.

One of the standout features of the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill is its Anti-Vibration System (AVS). The AVS is designed to reduce the amount of vibration that the user feels when operating the drill. This is important because prolonged exposure to high levels of vibration can lead to fatigue, discomfort, and even injury over time.

The AVS in the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill works by incorporating several different components. First, the drill has an internal counterbalance system that helps to reduce the amount of vibration created by the piston-driven mechanism. This counterbalance system works to offset the vibration created by the hammering action, reducing the amount of energy that is transferred to the user’s hands and arms.

  • Max Control, Enhanced Safety
  • AVS - Anti Vibration System
  • Chips 1/2 Ton of Material Per Charge
  • AutostopTM E-Clutch

Versatility of the Rotary Hammer Drill

The Milwaukee Rotary Hammer Drill is very versatile and can be used in a variety of applications. It has four modes of operation: hammer, chisel, hammer chisel, and drill. The hammer chisel mode is the most common mode for drilling into masonry, as it provides both rotation and hammering action. However, the hammer-only mode can be useful for breaking up concrete or other materials, while the drilling mode is ideal for drilling into wood or metal.

Milwaukee 4-Cutter Bit + Milwaukee Rotary Hammer Drill

When you pair the Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit with the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill, you get a powerful and efficient drilling system that can handle even the toughest masonry projects. The combination of the aggressive cutting action of the 4-Cutter Masonry Bit and the piston-driven hammering action of the rotary hammer drill means you can drill through concrete, brick, and stone faster and with less effort than you would with other tools.

In addition to being powerful and efficient, the Milwaukee 4-Cutter Masonry Bit and the Milwaukee rotary hammer drill are also built to last. Both tools are made from high-quality materials and are designed to withstand the rigors of frequent use on tough materials. This means you can count on these tools to get the job done for years to come.
