Avoid damaging your standard bits by switching to these rebar cutters to make holes in reinforcing bar or wire mesh embedded in concrete or masonry. Use them in a compatible drill to power through rebar quickly and easily. Your drill should be set to rotary mode (no hammer action) while cutting the rebar, and the cutter should not be used for drilling through concrete or masonry surrounding the rebar.
These straight shank bits have three flats to fit hammer drills or other drills with standard 3-jaw chucks.
SDS Plus Shank
Pair these bits with rotary hammer drills that have a compatible SDS Plus chuck, which is spring loaded to absorb heavy impact and vibration. The SDS Plus shank prevents the bit from slipping in the chuck, improving performance in high-torque applications. Bits with an SDS Plus shank can be changed with one hand for greater efficiency.
