Customer Reviews

20-Volt Max Cordless SDS 3 Mode Rotary Hammer (Tool Only) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Corded Performance Purchased the bare tool as I already have several 20V products. Arrived as described, great packaging. Out of the box used it for two projects that I'd been languishing on due to needing to break out 100' of cord, corded drill, etc.. NO difference in performance vs my Bosch corded hammer drill [which I'd previously thought was the best in class for it's size] With a good bit, it powers thru concrete and brick like a champ and I had both items installed/repaired in no time. Did not take long to dig any of the necessary holes. Highly recommend if it's in your budget...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oustanding Rotary Hammer!!! Rotary hammer using a battery?? Looked at this tool many times before buying. After the purchase I waited for a job to use it. How good could it be. Excellent!!! Handled concrete just like my corded Bosch rotary hammer. From 5/32 to over 1" this drill did it all with ease. Forgot to put it in rotation mode and the drill pushed the 1/4" drill bit thru the wall anyway. Does an outstanding job without a clumsy cord hanging off of it. If you are on the fence about buying one, Get it!!! you will be pleasantly surprised. Very lightweight and powerful.
