does it come with a carrying case ?

Need to drill into concrete garage floor to insert rebar (to pour a concrete apron afterwards). Which bit would be the best for the job with this?

Asked by: MrTwister
Thank you for your question. Our SDS-Plus Carbide rotary hammer bits would be best for drilling into concrete. We do offer a variety of sizes depending on the diameter hole and depth that you need to drill. Here is an example: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bosch-1-2-in-x-6-in-SDS-Plus-Bulldog-Xtreme-Rotary-Hammer-Drill-Bit-HCFC2081/202242773

Best hammer drill bit to break up concrete

I plan on buying the Bosch 1 1/8" Bulldog Extreme Max. I am breaking up a short piece of sidewalk (3 ft long, 2 ft wide, 4" thick). Which bit should I purchase for this project? thanks
Asked by: wK
Correction. The Bosch rep gave this wrong answer: Thank you for your question. We would recommend the Bosch HS1935 flat chisel: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bosch-1-in-x-13-in-R-Tec-High-Speed-Steel-Sharp-Flat-Chisel-HS1935/202920456?keyword=bosch+hs1935 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.

8 Amp Corded 1-1/8 in. SDS-plus Variable Speed Rotary Hammer Drill with Auxiliary Handle and Carrying Case is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Drill I bought this hammer drill almost 2 years ago and don't think I'll ever have to buy another. I use it for my occupation and it performs beautifully. It has the strength to perform any job I ask it to, but doesn't nearly break my wrist(s) if it gets hung up. Penetrates all concrete like its dirt, large hole or small hole. Best hammer drill I've ever used!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good, I purchased it to chip up... So far so good, I purchased it to chip up ceramic tile off of a concrete floor and it has done an excellent job with that. I felt more comfortable purchasing it after reading reviews. There weren't any negative reviews of this particular model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the right tool for the job!!! I purchased this rotary hammer after being frustrated with my hammer drill's ability to drill 3/4" holes in foundation concrete. I have used my DeWalt hammer drill multiple times to drill into masonry with, in my opinion, subpar results. After making this upgrade to a real rotary hammer, I was completely satisfied with the difference and disappointed that I thought a combination hammer drill was even comparable to a rotary hammer. I spent over 2 hours trying to drill three holes with the hammer drill, beginning with a new bit. I then punched three holes in less than 5 minutes (set-up and all) with the Bosch rotarty hammer. This Bosch Rotary Hammer is very light and ergonomic for the power it possesses. I opted for the D-handle because most of my intense masonry drilling will be in the vertical direction. SDS style bits are worth the upgrade as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best hammer drill I've owned so far As a general contractor who remodel kitchen and bath this tool makes demo work of old tiles much easier. Also very durable as well built to last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance, good value. I already own a DeWalt 18v corldless hammer drill, but needed a SDS rotary hammer drill to tackle making a 1" hole through my brick/block exterior wall to run some cabling. After explaining to my wife how my $250+ hammer drill wasn't up to the tasks for various reasons, I drove to my local Home Depot to review my options. I had originally planned on getting a DeWalt 18v XRP compatible cordless hammer drill, but after seeing the Bosch 1 1/8" unit on display, and the reasonable price, I decided to get that one. I've used Bosch rotary hammers in the past, and have never been disappointed before. Unpacking the drill and inserting the 1" SDS Plus rotary bit took no time at all. Plugged it in, and went to work. 1 minute later, job done. LOL. The drill was smooth and easy, experienced no hang-ups in the hole, and the variable speed control grip are comfortable and easy on the wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outlives the competition We've drilled over 1,000 1/2x8-12" holes in very old and very hard concrete (5,000 psi or greater) this drill has more than earned the best in class distinction. It has only bound up twice against rebar yet reverse walked it out while other's had to be drilled or chiseled out including a Bosch 35 hammer. If it gets hung up a few seconds in low speed reverse frees it up and away we go even on 5-10 hr days. The RH228 doesn't get hot yet we needed to change bits every 10-12 holes to keep drilling lest the bits wear out their flutes. Chiseling needs a bit longer stroke or to be held with just enough pressure to hammer more aggressively. The same helps the drill to penetrate hard concrete faster and eject the dust faster. 8 inches of 4-5,000 psi drilling in 1 minute is awesome.
