Milwaukee Introduces Most Durable, Fastest-Cutting Step Bits Optimized for Impacts

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Milwaukee Tool releases the most durable and fastest-cutting impact step bits on the market. Made in the USA, the new Shockwave Impact Duty Step Bits are designed to deliver best-in-class performance in impact drivers and the versatility to be used in drills. The combination of an optimized SHOCKZONE shank, titanium aluminum nitride coating and Rapid Strike tip make these step bits the longest-lasting and fastest-cutting impact step bits available.

Designed to deliver maximum life, each step bit is optimized with a ¼-inch hex shank and SHOCKZONE to absorb torque in all applications. Together these features provide the industry’s most durable shank, helping to eliminate premature shank failure. A titanium aluminum nitride coating across the entire geometry of the bit also helps deliver five times longer life.

Recognizing that many step bits fail at the tip, Milwaukee designed these bits with a Rapid Strike tip to prevent walking and deliver fast, accurate starts that generate less heat. This Rapid Strike tip, paired with a dual spiral flute design, allows the bits to produce two times faster holes.

For user convenience and accuracy, each bit also has laser-engraved reference marks that are easily visible while drilling.
