light and effective

By 

from Eastern Ontario, Canada

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-1/8" SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer:

I bought this for a reno which involved removing hundreds of square feet of plaster from limestone and lath. It works quickly, is much quieter than I thought it would be, and has extremely user friendly low vibration/impact feedback, so it hasn't aggravated my old hands and wrists. Light enough for hours of work at a go.

Perfect for the homeowner/handyman/Remodeler

By 

from Pittsburgh area, Pa

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-1/8" SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer:

I purchased the RH228VC and am very pleased with its performance. Had to remove tile on kitchen backsplash, fireplace floor and main door entrance floor. I was amazed how easy it was to remove the tile ( Vibrations were minimal compared to my old hammer drill ) The variolock was a bonus on this tool. I could change the angle of the tool to reduce stress on my hands and wrist. It also was great when removing tile in awkward places. The Bulldog rotary hammer bits put holes in concrete much easier and faster than other bits I have purchased. I always tell my son to work smarter as you get older in order to save your body from wear and tear. If tools could be smart, this tool's design is smart !!!!!!

Just the right size for the job!

By 

from Ajax, ON, Canada

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-1/8" SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer:

I just got the Bosch Extreme Bulldog RH228 SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer. I wanted a more nimble rotary hammer than my Bosch 11264EVS SDS-Max Rotary Hammer for certain applications. The smaller RH228 was just the solution. It provided enough power without the added weight than my larger hammer. Just less bulky for some of the apps I would need it for like removing tiles and smaller drilling operations that don't require the larger hammer. The integrated tool hook has surprisingly been a nice feature I didn't expect.

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-1/8" SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer:

I bought Bosch Bulldog just recently, so I only drilled few holes in hard rocks, ( Granite and basalt). So far is great -like cutting the butter.

Service Pro's

By 

from California

Comments about Bosch Tools 1-1/8" SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer:

After over 3,000, essentially more than 1/4 of a mile of holes, my RH228VC stopped. I did an online service request, printed out the UPS shipper tags and sent it off late Friday night. By the following Friday UPS delivered it to me. The variable speed trigger switch had been replaced along with a new cord and new bit holder. It is back on line and we are back at it. Fantastic service and the best hammer drill on the market!!
