Customers, and apparently Bosch reps, are sometimes confused by the naming of this tool: Bosch 1 1/8" Bulldog Extreme "Max".
This tool uses the SDS-Plus sized bits - NOT - the SDS-Max sized bits.
If you buy an SDS-Max bit - it will not fit your 1 1/8" Bulldog Extreme Max.
For this project I bought the SDS-Plus 3/4" x 10" Viper Flat Chisel (with bracing ribs).
It did the job.
Happy customer.

Thank you for your question. For driving ground rods you would need an SDS-Max or Spline hammer. The SDS-Plus rotary hammers are not designed for driving ground rods.

Answer: 
From what I could find they don't sell a rod driving bit for this SDS Plus hammers. That said I have driven rebar rods into the ground with this using a 1/2 " Bull Point Chisel (Store SKU # 644450) and a 1 foot piece of metal conduit as a sleeve to hold the chisel on the end of the rebar. Pushed the rods into the sandy rocky ground like nothing.

If I buy a 1 1/8 sds plus can I use smaller shanks on the bits?? Not sure what the 1 1/8 vs 7/8 means. I need to drill about 200 holes in rock to feather and wedge it. Trying to find a decent drill and the best bits. I know HD rents drills for this but this will take me along time and its not worth renting, so I will have to buy.

Thanks,

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It is one of my many Bosch tools they are all great . made my project very easy I am glade i went to Home Depot , which I am a Bosch guy and it was so easy drilling through concrete, I truly love my drill LOve it. , thank you german engineers for the masterpiece. AL P April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Packs a punch! Ripped up a 1000sqft of tile in no time at all! Very impressed and satisfied! Would recommend it to anyone for any drilling or chiseling needs. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice drill I am a concrete contractor. I had the original Bulldog drill for 15 years. It drilled thousands of holes. It finally died. I purchased the rh228vc as a replacement. It drills great. I chose this drill because it was more powerful than the 11255vsr and it is made in Germany.... Like my old one. Hope I get another 15 years out of this one. The case could be a bit more. It's pretty flimsy. But I didn't buy it for the case. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Total Labor Saver I bought this rotary hammer to break up masonry beds and tile in older bathrooms. This thing worked like a charm. Saved hours of swinging a sledge hammer. Ended up taking 1780 pounds of concrete and tile out of that second floor bathroom. I then bought a chipping bit an removed about 40 SF of time from a basement slab in about 30 minutes including clean up. It also drills holes for Tapcons into concrete with almost zero effort. I was using my Makita 18V cordless hammer drill to drill many of these holes and it had to be hard on those batteries. I would recommend this to a DIYer that does a lot of hammer drilling or a small contractor that needs to put in tons of concrete anchors. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tough little machine! For a little hammer drill, this equipment packs a punch! I highly recommend it for all your concrete and Masonary hammer drilling as well as any small demolition. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool Had to drill weep holes into the bottom of my retaining wall. Using 1 1/4" bit, drilled the holes in no time flat. This is a fantastic tool to have. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hammer drill not drilling? You need this one! My 7amp hammer drill could not do the job and it wore me out. Entire weekend wasted. This drilled more holes in an hour than the whole weekend. SDS is the way to go.....I had large aggragate rock to drill through as well. If the egyptions had this it would have taken 40 days to build the pyriamid instead of 40 years. Home depot even matched an unbeatable price. It was crazy! Thanks Bosch. October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool at a great price. This is the second Bulldog rotohammer I've had. The first had always worked well for me but this new one is even better with it's improvements. It's smoother and has less vibration than before. Great tool! March 4, 2014
