BHC 18 use SDS Chisel?

Hi,

Maybe a crazy question, but can you use a SDS chisel in the FT BHC 18?

Thanks!

It'll fit. But as it's a pure (hammer-)drill you can't turn off the rotation - it won't be fun, safe or practical to use.

Bit of a fail really.
Not needed all the time but handy on the odd occasion.

I haven't used it myself, but this thing might work Bosch sds-plus chisel attachment

 I have Milwaukee 1 1/8" rotary hammer which has the chisel function that works great.  I install steel frames and doors, often as a replacement.  The Milwaukee is great for cleaning up the masonry after removing the existing frame.  I use a Hilti TE-72 for the big stuff.

Just used the M18 and 1-1/2” chisel yesterday to notch a post for a square stub tenon. Nice tool.
