This is the newest of ...

Comments about Bosch Tools 1" SDS-Plus Bulldog Xtreme Rotary Hammer:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Durable and tough!
from Rockford, IL, United States
This hammer drill really has the power to get through the material. It's quieter than the other hammer drills I've owned in the past and powers through everything I've thrown it's way so far. As a contractor, I've got to have tools I can rely on. This does the job!
Used this drill for years and never had any issues.
from Detroit, MI, United States
The handle hammer hook clip doesn't attach to a ladder very well. Over all I'm pleased with the way the hammer drill works. It feels like a heavy duty drill.
