Not just a ground rod driver!
I bought this to drive 3/4"x36" and 48" long steel stakes for landscaping projects. It works great for this even in my heavy clay soil.

sds max bit only good for driving 3/4" ground rods
bosch says its designed to drive both 5/8" and 3/4" ground rods. the inside diameter of the socket is 7/8" making it difficult to control your sds max hammer drill when driving 5/8" ground rods. This can cause the top of the rod to mushroom thereby also making it difficult to place a standard 5/8" ground rod clamp. the technical specifications are a bit off in the description: overall length is 10" inside diameter is 7/8" (outside diameter is 1.5") inside depth of the socket is almost 3" i'd pass on this unless you only use 3/4" ground rods. on a side note if you're driving just one or two ground rods i'd use the garden hose trick and drive it in with your hands. much cheaper, safer (no standing on a ladder with heavy tools), and much quieter. you wont believe how easy it is; i did one in 5 minutes. look it up on youtube under "driving a ground rod".
