What is the difference between a hammer drill and impact driver?
The difference between a hammer drill and an impact drill lies in the mechanism that powers the rotational action and the types of drill bits used. The mechanism of a hammer drill results in a linear forward force, thereby combining chiseling and drilling in one tool. For an impact drill, the force is delivered perpendicular to the bit. Hammer drills have chucks, while impact drivers have a quick-release clamp. Impact drivers are suitable for projects involving driving bolts or screws in wood or metal but do not perform well for drilling purposes. A hammer drill is an excellent tool for drilling but performs well, especially for drilling into concrete or masonry. We carry various types of Hammer Drills from top brands with various features such as Keyless Chuck, LED Light and Variable Speed.

What types of motors are available for products within Hammer Drills?
Drills can have a brushed or brushless motor, and the primary difference lies in the mechanism through which the motor powers the drill. Brushed drills use carbon brushes to power the motor mechanically. On the other hand, brushless drills do not have brushes and use an electronic circuit board with magnets to spin the rotor. Between the two, brushless drills last longer, require less maintenance and are also more efficient. Within Hammer Drills we carry 7 products with brushless motor and 2 products with brushed motors.
