It isn't too heavy and it actually works very well. I needed a hammer drill to install some brackets into cement so I had to drill several large holes so the anchors would fit. I think 3/8? Anyhow, this baby did the job quite well, and quickly. I am a homeowner and have use it only occasion since, but haven't had any issues. BTW I had purchased a more expensive other brand to do the same job and I returned it because it simply was not up to the task.

Drills smoothly and fairly quick through various types of concrete even some with many rocks. I've drilled many holes all the way up to 3/4 in. with no problems. Drill still runs great. In certain situations I've started with smaller bits and work up to the final size. This keeps the bits cool and reduces the downward pressure you have to apply to drill. Also starting small helps reduce the possibility of cracking the concrete. Use high quality bits. Masonry bits can be expensive, but well worth the investment for fast drilling and good results. All hammer drills are noisy so wear hearing protection and safety glasses.

I purchased it to bore holes into a concrete foundation to install a deck ledger board. After two bits and 30 minutes, I had successfully completed three holes. I subsequently rented a DeWalt roto-hammer that knocked the remaining 37 holes out in less time than the first three. The drill works fine, it just can't handle concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A welcome upgrade from my VSR drill Like most home hobbyists, there is an occasional need to fasten supports to concrete walls. I've spent 5 or more minutes drilling a single hole using my 1/2 inch drill. Finally I decided there had to find a better solution since I was facing the need to drill 15 holes in concrete for installation of shelving. I read other reviews saying this tool was what I needed, and they were right. Maybe 15-30 seconds per hole is all it took. A great purchase, and since my need is infrequent the corded model was fine for my needs and easy on the budget. With a switchable ability to use this as a regular drill I'll be saying goodbye to my VSR drill. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drill I had difficulty drilling into concrete block with an old variable speed drill. Did some research and decided to try a hammer drill. Went to Home Depot and with an associate's assistance, I selected this DeWALT 1/2in VARIABLE SPEED REVERSIBLE HAMMER DRILL. It has a switch that allows you to go from regular to hammer, and it made the job very easy. The attachable handle and depth guide is easy to add, and for the price I paid it is a great value. For the average homeowner who needs a drill for household projects, you can't go wrong. I recommend this corded drill over battery operated. I expect it to last for many years.
