Man, lol at the idiot 1* reviewer on Home Depot trying to drill through a concrete basement with this instead of using an actual rotary hammer drill...and claiming it gave him severe burns on his arm.

Is this a good deal? I haven't seen this drill any cheaper personally. I'm planning to pick this and the DCD796B later on.

Hi, I am new to these kinds of tools. What else should this hammer drill not be used for? I guess anything with long durations such as concrete drilling should be avoided.

Thanks OP. This will pair nicely with the orbital sander deal from the other day that included a battery.

You are correct sir, with any battery powered hammerdrill or impact driver, they shouldn't be put to continous and constant use because the motor will burn out.

My brother used my hammerdrill with a small earth auger and burned out the tool because he continously drilled holes (over 50) without giving the tool a break. Now my drill cannot even be used to drill a screw into wood.

These things are meant to be screwed into wood applications and not into concrete, steel or constant vigorous drills. Yes they can occasionally be used for those types of things but give them some rest in between or they will break down much sooner like mines did. Good luck!

It should handle anything short of concrete. I've used it for light concrete drilling with the 5ah battery and when the battery died the drill was getting pretty warm. If you use it with a flexvolt (6ah +) battery I'd let it cool down once it starts getting warm. Not sure how he managed to get burned at all though thats just user error.

Burn his arm! Funny. Maybe used a wood bit and touched it after it got red.

I used the 18 volt XR equivalent to this to put six 1/2" holes in my garage floor (for drainage to the earth below) through 4 to 6 inches of concrete. Took at least two batteries to complete.

This 996B will likely do just fine for a busy DIY homeowner or a small projects handyman.

I own both this hammer drill and the SDS brushless version and the difference between the two for drilling through concrete or any other masonry is truly remarkable and huge. With the SDS hammer drill, I could simply hold / stabilize the drill without applying any force and it will drill at 5 or 10 or 20 times the speed of the hammer drill.

Not the same hammer drill as the one in the kit. The one in the kit is the 796 hammer drill

It's easier to think of it from the opposite side — when is a hammer drill GOOD to have versus a standard non-hammer drill.

I'm gonna disagree that a hammer drill is ever needed in wood. A good quality twist or forstner bit with a decent quality 18v drill is the right tool for the job. Continuously hammering a twist bit into wood isn't necessary.

Good uses for the hammer drill might be predrilling into block or foundation walls for tapcons when hanging those shelves. Or drilling a few holes in your basement slab for the bottom plate of a partition wall. Maybe you want to hand a garden hose reel in exterior brick ... all great uses for the hammer drill. Production? Absolutely no. Grab a rotary hammer. But if your drilling needs might occasionally require securing something into brick, masonry, or concrete - a few screws at a time, then it's nice to have.

If you NEVER do those things, the added weight if the hammer drill can be obnoxious. For instance if you just want to drill pocket holes all afternoon? You don't need a hammer drill.
