Answer: 
A rotary hammer drill is the tool to use for drilling holes in concrete. Some clarification is needed however. What is the diameter of the hole you need to drill? If you are sinking a sump pump below the level of the floor, a hole the size of a 5 gallon bucket +/- will be necessary. If this is the case, a jackhammer would be a better tool for that job. Remove more concrete than necessary, drop a bucket Read More

Answer: 
It can be done with the smaller roto hammer, but will take a little longer than with the larger one Bosch suggested. However, if you think you may run into re-bar, you could save yourself a headache and hire or rent a core driller.

Answer: 
The Bosch 11255VSR would be too small of a hammer to chip out the floor, you would need a SDS-MAX hammer with more impact energy to do that type of work.

We need to remove about 20 sq/ft of tile and thin-set. It looks like it can lift the tile with no trouble but can it also chisel up the thin-set left behind?

I need a drill to drill 1 inch holes in some very hard rock. Is this drill capable of doing that?

Also, I heard that if I was going to drill holes in rocks, I would most likely need a Max model and bits. Are the SDS & SDS Plus drill bits capable of drilling 12 inch holes in rocks? If they are, are they durable? DO you need to use water on them to keep them from heating up?

Answer: 
Never ever buy a cheap bit for any drilling tool, and the Bosch seem to be as good as they get. If you pay 50% more money and get 100% more work out of one, you've bought well.
If your bits are heating up to the point that you are worrying about them (yep, they can turn red!), the poor drill motor will need a break as well. Pull it out and let it spin freely.

Thank you for your question. The Bosch 11255VSR will drill up to a 1" diameter hole into concrete. You do not need to use water with this rotary hammer. We do offer 1" diameter SDS Plus bits up to 16" usable length and 18" overall length.

They do make 1 " diameter bits for it. I am not sure about your specific rock though as you did not specify. With concrete there would be no problem. To give you an idea how this rotary hammer works. I tried to drill 3/8" holes in some tough concrete with a lot of rocks in it with a regular hand hammer drill. I would take me about 20 minutes for a hole especially when it hit a rock, which would happen Read More

I tried to drill 3/8" holes in some tough concrete with a lot of rocks in it with a regular hand hammer drill. I would take me about 20 minutes for a hole especially when it hit a rock, which would happen 2-3 times per hole.
I broke down and bought this rotary hammer. And was able to finish the job at the rate 20 seconds per hole, rocks did not slow it down at all.
And no you do not use water with this.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Admittedly, I haven't used many of these previously. However, when I pulled this out, other guys at the job site immediately said it was a great little tool. After using it to break apart both concrete and brick, I came to the same conclusion. If you are in need of a rotary hammer, this seems to do the job well. October 27, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by I wanted to buy a Milwaukee rotary HAMMER DRILL and you did not have any in stock at the store, so I purchased the Bosch. My older Milwaukee out performs the Bosch, I will be returning it for the Milwaukee. Peter Lontakos October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great on concrete as a hammer drill and chisel. October 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good Have not used for any duration that would justify the price to my way of thinking. Still, for what I have done so far, I would say this is a good entry level hammer drill that has a blend of features and power that make it perfect for almost any basic requirements I can think of. It really comes down to scaling the tool to the job. The same goes for matching the bit to this tool. This little beast has no problems drilling 1/2" holes with an 18" bit for termite treatment straight into a slab. No problem drilling through brick either. Have not yet used the hammer only feature with a chisel but I expect it would perform decently for its size. Bottom line: seems a good choice for price sensitive consumers that do not expect to use this on a daily basis for their job and also seems a good addition to the tool arsenal periodic professional use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boom bang...what a great drill! Like others, I had spent lots and lots of time drilling into my concrete floors using a hammerdrill. It was tiring and frustrating, taking way to long and burning up expensive drill bits in no time. I got this Bulldog and a Bulldog EXTREME drill bit and drilled down so fast I didn't believe it was working right at first. It probably took me no more than 10 to 20 seconds to drill the same holes I had spent 20 minutes drilling and killing myself on before. This drill is a real project saver for me...now back to the fun part! October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This drill is unbelievable! I have been trying to drill holes in new concrete with pea gravel to anchor the posts for the gazebo I am building. I went thru 4 masonry bits (one of them was carbide tipped) trying to drill 5 holes with my 18v cordless drill even tried my dewalt corded drill but it ran to fast to be effective. Thought I was doomed to get one hole per bit (16 total holes to drill) at $8.99 per bit! Then I started researching the best bit to use and that led me to rotary hammer drills and that is when I found this drill on sale for $20 off at Home Depot. The reviews were excellent so I decided to buy one. Man, are you kidding me! I drilled the rest of the 16 holes in half the time it had taken me to drill 5 holes plus I did all this with just one SDS bit! This drill goes thru concrete like a hot knife thru soft butter! It is comfortable to use since it has the side arm handle and the depth gauge was easy to use and was icing on the cake. Don't know how many jobs I might use this in the future but it was well worth the money for this job alone. Highly recommend this drill. October 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Drill for solid concrete This is a professional drill at an excellent price. Drilling into solid concrete is effortless. The hammer action is exceptional. I drilled multiple 5/16 and 1/4 holes for mounting furring strips and foam board in the basement. October 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job The bosch bulldog helped us to remove a mason fireplace wall and I could see where the larger rotary hammer would have done a faster job but this size rotary hammer worked and was half the price and will probably only use it very rarely the only thing I didn't like is that the chisel some times slipped out but that could've been my fault.
