I was shopping for a hammer drill several days ago and all research pointed to this being better than any hammer drill. Lowe's had it a week ago for the lowest price at $179 and even better now at it's current $159 price. If your debating spending $140-$150 for a Dewalt hammer drill as I was it is worth it spending a bit more and getting the bosch rotary hammer.

I owned a Dewalt hammer drill but had a lot of concrete work to do (demolition and drilling) so I bought the RH228VC drill (very similar) three years ago and it's so much fun to use. I've drilled many dozens of holes extremely fast in concrete and no numb hands like I got with the Dewalt.

Please note that this takes special SDS bits and won't accept standard bits.

There is a relatively cheap kit here: https://www.amazon.com/HCST006-SD...0062I9G2W/

You can also get an SDS adapter that lets you use standard bits: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0062ICGEM/

I prefer the SDS bits as they are very easy to load and unload but I bought the adapter so I could use a cement mixer. I should add that if you do this then be careful because the drill isn't rated for continuous use and you have to let it cool down appropriately before the next batch.

I was so impressed with this tool that I started buying Bosch tools when feasible. I own a cordless drill, a sawzall, and their giant media player.

Great information, I actually ordered that same SDS bit set along with the tool. I had an older Milwaukee hammer drill I used before this and there is no comparison with how fast the Bosch can drill holes. An added benefit is you can use this tool for other things besides drilling like chiseling etc.
