working in the Telecommunication industry I would Typically use a 2" rotary hammer for Firewall penetrations but this drill proved to me it could handle a 2 1/2" carbide Rock cutting hole saw as well as 12"x1/2" sds (don't kill me for putting SDS bits in a Chuck). Now whenever I'm doing a penetration thru cinder or questionable building material Bosch Bores the way. this drill truly shines when you need a whole slew of expansion anchors holes tapped the speed at which this thing eats is crazy! and it fell off "big-Bertha" a 12' A frame only to bounce back at it

I bought this drill 4 days ago and returned it today. I used it for the first time yesterday with a 1 1/8" spade bit with a 1/4" hex shank drilling through 2"x6" studs to wire a garage. On the eleventh hole the bit jammed and the gears stripped. With no load the bit would still turn but if you put any kind of load on it (even just holding the chuck by hand) the bit would stop and the gears would grind. I've used the Bosch Bulldog and the bigger Bosch demolition hammers before and they worked great so I was expecting a tool that was more rugged and reliable than this one turned out to be. I would expect a 1/2" drill to twist off a 1/4" hex shank before it's gears stripped. This drill has cost me 6 hours of work if you take into consideration the time taken to go get it in the first place, then have to return it and get a different one.

The drill is balanced and comfortable to use. I like the longer cord making it more convenient than hunting down an extension cord. The drill has plenty of power and I like the hammer drill, both functions operate perfectly. The drill has plenty of power (using a 6" hole saw I needed the side handle due to the strong torque). The drill came with a depth gauge, chuck wrench, rotatable side handle and a nice case. The only potential problem is the side handle is difficult to tighten, having a rather small wing nut making it difficult to snug up.
Not quite what i was hoping for

I bought this tool to drill some weep holes in a concrete deck. It performed well enough for its design. I had to rent a roto hammer to complete the job. Am keeping it for normal drilling into concrete walls for fasteners and such.

Sturdy, yet light, this drill does a great job. A switch on top allows one to use it as a regular drill or as a hammer drill. Good buy for the money. Nice case, as well.
Like it big time!
Bought it to help build a small wooden deck over a concrete base. Drill was used to anchor screws and bolts to substrate. Found it to be very reliable and powerful. Cut overall job time considerably.
aworks every time

I ought this 4 months ago to drill some holes in my garage walls to hang some things. It works great. I've had no problems and it has plenty of power.
I needed a hammer drill and normally I buy something in between the cheapest and one that costs the most, and a guy at the store recommend the Bosch. It was a little more money but I decided to go with it and give it try it. I was really impressed with how it worked and how well it handled. Also easy to use. It comes with a nice carrying case. It did a great job on the task I was doing, and it had plenty of power. I would definitely recommend this product
Had a problem with the original gear stopping with in a week, but it was quickly replaced through warranty and had been great since
Gets the job done
from Philadelphia, PA, United States
Bought this tool a few weeks ago for a specific job, to put up shelves on a concrete wall in my garage. The Bosch worked wonderfully. My only complaint is that the auxilliary handle slipped off a couple of times. It feels like it needs tightening with pliers.
great equipment easy to use
