I have to remove 20 x 30 feet of wood floor. Will this power tool help me rip it up? The price for my floor guy to rip up my wood floor is monumental. I thought I would do it myself. If it can be done with this Bosch tool, any recomendations on the shank to use?
Asked by: Rpapito
Thank you for your question. We would recommend using an SD's-Max tool, which you can check out here https://www.boschtools.com/us/en/boschtools-ocs/sds-max-hammers-23518-c/, using the HS1918 floor scraper. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

does it come with a case

Asked by: ErikG
Yes a nice solid case with enough room for a few loose bits rattling around. It would have been nice if there were a holder for those somewhere.

Can this be used to lift tile and remove thinset?

We need to remove about 20 sq/ft of tile and thin-set. It looks like it can lift the tile with no trouble but can it also chisel up the thin-set left behind?
Asked by: mike
I used this Hammer + Bosch Bulldog Xtreme 1-1/2 in. x 10 in. SDS-plus Hammer Steel Self-Sharpening Tile Chisel to remove tile & thinset. It cracked like candy. It took about an 2 hours for about 80 sq/ft. For about $10 more, I recommend my favorite Bosch Bulldog Xtreme 1-1/2 in. x 10 in. SDS-plus Hammer Steel Self-Sharpening Wide Chisel.

7.5 Amp Corded 4-1/2 in. Angle Grinder with Lock-on Slide Switch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 273.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool The Bosch 11255 is awesome. I bought this drill to complete a gun safe installation that my previous hammer drill just could not handle. The bulldog made quick work of the 4 half inch holes I needed to drill in the concrete floor. The real test came today. My son needed to mount some heavy duty industrial shelf units to the concrete floor in the warehouse of a distillery he is opening. We needed to drill 32 half inch holes 4 inches deep. The rotory hammer does all the work, requiring very little downward pressure from the operator. Average time to drill a 1/2 inch hole 4 inches deep was probably around 10-20 seconds, with very little effort on my part. Actually, on the first hole I drilled I did apply a lot of pressure and the drill did not perform as well as it did when I decreased the pressure. The reason I selected the Bulldog 11255 was because of all the rave reviews I had read, and I must concur. This thing is awesome for drilling holes in concrete. I would recommend this drill to any one. Good job, Bosch.

A quick twist of the auxiliary handle and you can reposition it to your liking. It also has a built in depth stop. The cord is fairly long, and everything fits in the included case with no issues. There is even room for extra bits in the case.

It took me all morning to get one hole drilled with my Skil hammer drill. I went to HD and got this Bosch drill and had all the holes drilled in 2 hours. The SDS Chuck great.

It gets the job done. Tip: use goggles, respirator, and work gloves for the job. Also, apply grease to the chuck before inserting a drill bit or chisel.
