1/2 in. Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small jobs. I picked this hammer drill up because I needed one that was light in weight, powerful and durable. I've had several hammer drills and by far this is my favorite. I only need to drill with a masonry drill here and there for handyman jobs typically 1/4-1/2 bits for achors. The first hole drilled cleanly and smooth. Sure this is croded but I felt even with a extension cord it still felt lighter than some of the 18v models I've owed. All this being said I'd recommend for any Handyman or homeowner than needs a dependable drill for either masonry or even for general use. Bonus Made or assembled in the USA!!!

First hammer drill I have purchased, I selected this model because of the brand name and it was on sale. I needed about 25 holes to make into concrete piers under the house and so far there has been no problems.

I purchased this drill to mix some floor leveler because the instructions specified that a 1/2 inch variable speed drill was needed. I have a number of other dewalt products so I chose this 1/2" variable speed drill. By the third bag of floor leveler (less than 10 minutes) the drill had begun to smoke. My initial thought was that there was some oil that was burning off. By the 5th bag (less than 15 minutes of use), it let out all it's magic smoke and was done. Unfortunately, I still had three bags to mix and pour and had no slack time to get another drill. Instead I used my 3/8 inch drill for the final three bags. Maybe I got a lemon??

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well I bought this to replace a 30 year old Milwaukee hammer drill. I tested it out with some 1/2 inch by 6 inch deep holes in 35 year old concrete. I was quite impressed with the ease this drill bored into the concrete. Only negative I find is that for a VSR - slow speeds are a bit touchy- in a narrow range right a the on-off spot. For the price I can't complain.

Motor would not spin. No abuse, just driving a masonry bit into concrete and after about a hundred done over two days that was it. Gone baby gone. Home Depot gracefully offered exchange or refund. I got a Makita.
