Perfect for the homeowner/handyman/Remodeler
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 !!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just the right size for the job!
from Ajax, ON, Canada
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.
Great product for the great price
from Toronto, ON, Canada
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.

Well made, very tough construction.
from Stevens Point, WI, United States
I have used one at work for the last 2 years for sanitary sewer manhole repairs. I decided to buy one for my own use at home.
Could not be better
I have used it several times and it has not let me down. I wish I had had it much sooner.
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!!
from Whitinsville, Ma
First job I ever had to do with my company was to put some drop in anchors into this brick building they gave me this tool and I loved how quick it went into the brick!
Versatile and powerful
from New Jersey, United States
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.
Great features on the RH228VC
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!!!
An excellent hammer ...
from Butler, PA, United States
An excellent hammer drill. Drills fast with little pressure. great for drilling walls for 1/4" anchors.
