Product Overview

The DEWALT DC233KL SDS rotary hammer blasts holes up to 7/8 in. diameter through dense rock, solid concrete and virtually any other masonry material with lightning speed and surprising ease. This ultra-heavy-duty, 36-volt lithium-ion tool produces an impressive 2.0 ft.-lbs. of impact energy, resulting in corded power without the cord. The high-performance, commercial-grade motor drives the bit at 0-1,150 RPM, and 0-4,400 blows per minute. This versatile model is equipped with 3 different operating modes: rotary drilling, hammer drilling and chipping. Users will also appreciate the factory-set clutch that greatly reduces sudden, high-torque reactions if a bit jams in the hole. Other features include: a 360-degree rotating side handle for maximum control; an adjustable depth rod for consistently boring exact-depth holes; and a compact, L-shaped design that fits into tight spaces that are inaccessible to standard SDS rotary hammers. The DC233KL comes with 2 36-volt lithium-ion batteries, 1 -hour charger, side handle and depth rod and rugged storage case. (Each battery can be recharged up to 2,000 times.) It’s backed by DEWALTs 3-year limited warranty, 90-day m 1 y-back guarantee, and two-year free service contract.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding performance I got a chance to use this at a job for a solid 3 months. Most of the holes drilled were 1/4" and 1/2" which is not all that impressive, but the performance and speed were a big plus. Battery life was extremely well. This drill was well used before we got it and it took a beating (industrial setting). With labor costs being what they are, this drill saved the the contractor money due to its speed, battery life, and durability. Used the chisel also and it worked well. Granted it's pricey, but for the long term investment... a must have. June 7, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good drill but had to return too weak Good drill if it could only drill a 1" hole I would have kept it. For $800 it should be able to drill a 1" hole!!! Other than that I loved it I also bought the 20 v version it is great for the small stuff. November 13, 2013
