This might be the best money I ever spent on a tool! As an owner of a home with concrete block walls and a concrete block garage, I struggled for years using a hammer-drill to do the simplest of things (hang mirrors, pictures, shelving, ect.). My house is old and the block would dull masonry bits after 1 or 2 holes or less. The Bosch Bulldog Extreme is like a hot knife going through butter. I recently added a large front porch and was able to drill hundreds of holes through wood into concrete and concrete block with just 2 bits, without sharpening them, and they are still useable. I could drill a 5/16" hole 4" deep in a matter of seconds with very little pressure. It is simply amazing. My only regret is I should have bought it sooner. I own several other Bosch tools and I now understand that Bosch is the brand that I will trust for a very hard working tool that will last.

I used this tool all of 2 days set (27) 1/2" anchors 3" depth and then 6 more the next day. The collar broke off but it was still usable then the chuck failed. I replaced the chuck and it is still usable. Not the quality I have come to expect from BOSCH.

Comments about Bosch Tools 1" SDS-Plus Bulldog Xtreme Rotary Hammer:
I purchased this unit to help drill anchor holes into concrete to tether my deck to in a recent deck reno. With this tool I can drill the appropriate hole in seconds, whereas the conventional hammer drills were averaging 20 minutes per hole...one of the best tools I have ever purchased
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

a pleasure to use
from Toronto, ON, Canada
I use this unit to go through many inches of concrete and to perforate brick joints for easier cleaning. The 11253VSR is light so I can achieve a lot more in less time.

Performed very well as a hammer drill...efficient and easy to use.
Awesome Drill for the Price
I have been using this drill for about 2 years and wow as a hammering drill it rocks. I install electric strikes in cement filled door frames and this just blowes away my other drill from a competitor which by the way died with less than a year on it with the same work done. Drilling thru floors is a breeze and smooting rough block walls to mount card reader is no problem. You need one this is the best value I use up to a 1 1/8" masonary bit with no problem.
Rips through anything you throw at it ...
This rotary hammer has the power when you need it. Plus variable speed provides nice versatility. Owned this drill for a couloir years and it works just as good as day 1.
First SDS hammer drill
from Toronto, ON
I used a small regular chuck hammer to put in tapcons for a plywood floor over concrete. About 400 screws. In the end, I had to replace the chuck and had to drill extra holes because it would hit a stone and not get through. I bought the SDS with hammer and no rotation so I could use it to chisel off tiles from my shower floor. It worked like a dream. I got this pistol grip version so it wasn't as long as the D handle version making it easier to move around.

This hammer drill rocks
from Dayton, OH
I use the Bosch Bulldog almost daily when it involves mounting electricial equiptment on hard surfaces. I would not use anything else because I hate to struggle, just to get the job done right. No battery drill can compare to the Bosh Bulldog! Qualified Electrical contractor that gets the job done right the first time!
