Service Pro's

By Mot99

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!!

Versatile and powerful

By IanB

from New Jersey, United States

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

Without a doubt, this is the go-to tool for about a dozen different tasks. It's light enough to replace your hammer drill, heavy duty enough to function as a chipper, and durable enough to last. I've used this for everything from pre-drilling in bricks to chipping away concrete - and felt confident for a variety of tasks.

The RH228VC is a great hammer drill from small holes to large in concrete. I especially like the fact that you can also use it as a chipper for removing tile. Great tool don't know how I got along without it for so long!!!

One tough drill

By lehmo_99

from Wisconsin, United States

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

As an electrician and do-it-yourselfer, I have demanded a lot of these drills, and they have stood the test of time. Our company uses these and other Bosch tools daily, and they take a beating. Overall it is lightweight and easy to handle.

Outlives the competition

By mot99

from Strawberry, CA, United States

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

We've drilled over 1,000 1/2x8-12" holes in very old and very hard concrete (5,000 psi or greater) this drill has more than earned the best in class distinction. It has only bound up twice against rebar yet reverse walked it out while other's had to be drilled or chiseled out including a Bosch 35 hammer. If it gets hung up a few seconds in low speed reverse frees it up and away we go even on 5-10 hr days. The RH228 doesn't get hot yet we needed to change bits every 10-12 holes to keep drilling lest the bits wear out their flutes. Chiseling needs a bit longer stroke or to be held with just enough pressure to hammer more aggressively. The same helps the drill to penetrate hard concrete faster and eject the dust faster. 8 inches of 4-5,000 psi drilling in 1 minute is awesome.

Hammer Drill "Nails It!"

By Patman

from High Ridge, MO

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

I have been working with the Bosch RH228VC since November 2013 and have found it to be reliable. So much so that I bought one to use at home and for any side work that may come along. My DeWalt hammer drill could not do the concrete work that the Bosch so easily accomplished.
