Does the job.

Comments about Bosch Tools 1" SDS-Plus Bulldog Xtreme Rotary Hammer:
I am over 70. The ground where I live is hard as a rock. My doctor recommended this device. Seems the people who put in her swimming pool used them to break up dirt. Having worn myself out using a pick and digging bar I decided to try it. Works beautifully breaking up ground for postholes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my second tool. It is working great. Would buy again
Fast and efficient
from Upland, CA, United States
I had to drill some holes in 50 year old concrete and it was harder than granite. I first tried with conventional drills. I burned out the first a 1/2" and gave up after after 2 hours and one hole done with the second drill. I got one of these Bosch 11255VSR drills and within 2 minutes had all of the holes I needed done. It was nicely balanced, easy to change bits rugged
Built tough- Gets the job done
from Danville, CA, United States
Have had this roto hammer for a couple of years and it has exceeded my expectations. Fantastic tool.
This is the newest of ...
from Castro Valley, CA, United States
This is the newest of three Bosch tools I own and I am impressed with all of them. I was unfamiliar with SDS interface and concerned about having to buy special drill bits, but as an engineer I recognized that decoupling the functions of rotation and hammering would be superior to traditional hammer drills. Although I have only drilled small holes thus far, I'm convinced it is a superior system and the time saved is worth the cost of special tools.
Sufficient power for the job
from MontrÃ©al, QC, Canada
Purchased for work on concrete at home. Used a larger unit to break the concrete floor but finished the work with my unit for drilling and do the final concrete chipping. Depth gauge is not very strong, so be careful when using it. Very glad to have this unit when doing renovation.
above the rest!
Have owned and used hammer drills of other top name brands but none compare. This is by far the best on the market thus far. The speed and ease of this drill saves time and money on jobs.
Functional Features-Easy to Operate-Works Well
from Coal township, PA
Usually I did most of my hammer-drill needs with a pistol grip type hammer-drill. Every now and then I wished I had a more robust unit and this Bosch Rotary Hammer was it. It just makes the job so much easier and I'm not abusing my regular pistol style hammer-drill anymore. I just use that for smaller jobs. I recently installed wiring for two split unit AC Units and had to punch through a cinder block wall with a cut stone exterior about 11 inches in all. The Bosch rotary hammer drill made it a breeze. It didn't even struggle using a 2 inch diamond core cutter on an extended reach SDS plus adaptor arbor. Very satisfied with the tools performance overall.
Best Rotary Hammer
from Honolulu, HI, United States
I have tried out other brands and the Bosch Bulldogs have always gotten the job done and fast don't waste your time trying out other brands these are the best only problem is sometimes they can grow feet on a project site and then need replacing Unfortunately I have had to replace several
Best all around hammer drill
from Iron River, WI, United States
I have had my Bulldog extreme for several years and it is the best overall hammer drill I have used. The largest hole I usually drill is 3/4" and it handles that with ease. I like that it reverses in case you get it stuck. Also, the versatility of being able to drill the smallest holes to the larger ones saves you from having to have two drills. I wouldn't trade it for two of somebody elses.
