1/2 in. Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 110.
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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should have this I can't believe I waited this long to buy a hammer drill. I was trying to drill a hole in concrete with a standard drill. It took me over an hour to drill one hole 3" deep. After I purchased this Dewalt hammer drill, it was like cutting butter. It took me less than a minute to drill the same hole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent time saver I had never used a hammer drill. I wore out a regular drill and several bits when a friend told me about the hammer drill. I bought this and drilled 15 holes in a few minutes through tough red brick Tougher than you think, concrete was easier) where the first hole took 3 days and 4 bits.with a regular drill.

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??
