One tough drill
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Value for Money
from Thunder Bay, ON, Canada
After removing concrete from a stair riser with the hammer drill: great tool, lots of power, easy to change bit, light!
Outlives the competition
from Strawberry, CA, United States
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!"
from High Ridge, MO
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.
Quality and durability thats lasts
from Bucks County, Pa.
I have had this tool forever drilled easily thousands of anchor holes in footings and she's still going strong. I especially like the design which allows you, (laborer) to set the pins after the first course has been laid, translating to fewer mistakes.
This is one great ...
from Coatesville, PA
This is one great tool!!!! I have used this to chip tile, and even drilled a 3" core, all with a minimum of effort. Even friends who have borrowed the tool have raved about it.
I like the light weight ...
from Bismarck, ND, United States
I like the light weight design. It work really great on any type of concrete surface. The price was very reasonable. It's easies hammer drill I have ever used. The Bosch bits that I have used seem cut right through the concrete like butter.
does it all
from New Jersey
This rotary hammer does it all, from drilling small holes in concrete for anchors, to 1 1/8 holes in solid concrete to run pipes through, and with the hammer only selector this works as a chipping hammer to chip away concrete or remove tile.
good dependable tool
from mathis tx.
drills through concrete with ease don't have to force
from Calgary, AB, Canada
I bought this mainlt to drill 10" deep holes in my garage pad to secure threaded bolts. Honestly, if you buy a decent drill bit (I used a top quality star bit) it really is like drilling into hardwood. Effortless is an understatement. And having a hammer only feature is something I will defintely find useful with my planned reno.
