just bought this unit so haven't had a chance to put it through it's paces fully yet, but just from testing it out it will definitely handle what I need it to do. Stripping stonework, small area plate tamping, and of course, drilling concrete. Pricey, but worth the money.

Brrrrr, cold climates demand functionality!
The tool performs wonderfully in outdoor temperatures above freezing, but.....beware of subzero temps.

Great Tool, But...

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-5/8" SDS-Max Rotary Hammer:
I just purchased the Bosch 11264EVS Hammer Drill. I love it so far. Very powerful and drills like butter. However, one feature that I was looking forward to was the One-Handed bit change that is mentioned under benefits on the Bosch website. This same feature can be referenced in the online video that is approximately 5 minutes long. At about the 3:10 minute mark in this video, it shows this feature. However, a Bosch technical support person just informed me that Bosch had to discontinue this feature due to issues after the chuck was contaminated with particles. Hence, my unit shipped with the standard Two-Handed Bit change chuck. I'm a little disappointed in Bosch but overall, very happy with this tool.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best bang for the buck
from Ohio, United States
After using Hilti rotary and demo hammers for over 25 years, we made the switch to Bosch about 2 years ago and we have been very pleased. While the Hilti may be a slightly more robust tool, the Bosch is more then capable. The Bosch 11264EVS specs out similar to the Hilti TE-70 in blow force, BPM and RPM while weighing nearly 7 pounds less and at 1/3 the cost. Performance in the field mirrors the "on paper" numbers and is practically identical to that of the higher priced Hilti. For us the Bosch makes better economic sense and is capable of standing up to the rigors of day to day commercial general contracting use and abuse.
Well designed package
from Bandera, TX, United States
I've only had my 11264EVS for a week now and have only used it for driving a ground rod. I like the design features of this rotary hammer: The indicator lights, swivel cord attachment point, variable speed dial, vibration damper handle, trigger switch with release and the general feel of the tool (weight, robustness and appearance). I have a few other Bosch tools which I am very happy with and will replace with same or upgrade when that time comes. Thanks for building quality tools.
the right tool for many jobs
from Keaau, HI, United States
Bought this rotary drill one year ago for drilling fence post holes into lava rock. Worked great using a portable generator in the field. It also was perfect for removing tile in a bathroom remodel, for hammering through concrete slab and light rebar in the home to move water pipes. This tool is amazing and very useful for demolition projects (and Hawaii fence posts).
very great tool and powerful impact
i like this tool . The motor and the hammer is very powerful. this tool is great for drill a concrete floor .
This is an awesome tool!
from Tucson Az
I bought this tool to help me with a home remodel and digging in some very tough ground. The variable speed allows me to control the impact for delicate demolition all the way to a heavy hitting, concrete breaking blow. All this in a relatively small hammer. I couldn't be happier!
Bosch 11264EVS review
from Calgary, AB
This is an excellent tool and may be overkill for many DIY home renovation projects, but if one considers the cost of rentals, including the tool bits, the payback is probably less than 10 projects. Make no mistake, this tool is "hard-core," a serious "pro" tool." For my first reno. project, I used it for removing 30 year old tiles from a concrete floor, and the residual tile cement. The tile cement was so firmly bonded to the concrete floor, I couldn't remove it by any manual means (hammer and concrete chisels). However the Bosch ripped it up with no problems, except for the dust!! Highly recommended. It also drills and breaks up concrete with no problems.
