I used the GBH2-28L to carve a 3.25x10 vent opening on my house's wall. The tool is very well balanced and cuts through concrete and blocks like butter. With it, I used the Bosch SDS self-sharpening chisel and the pinpoint chisel (in Hammer mode) to carve away the poured concrete and the block. It really didn't take much effort, you just press down on it and concrete immediately started to break apart. Got a few rebars and was able to use the chisel to separate the rebars, before using a reciprocating saw to cut the rebars. The tool even comes with a towel for you to wipe away the dirt once the job is done. A nice touch. This one is actually Made In Germany. Things I really like: - It locks chisel in place so it doesn't rotate around during use in hammer mode. To reposition the chisel, simply rotate to drill mode and set the angle before switching back to hammer mode. - The hammer action is adjustable (light to heavy) - It's got a slipper clutch so if it does get jammed the thing will slip to prevent twisting your arm. - It's also got a vibration control feature so when working, you feel minimal vibration transferred to your hand, not like some other hammer drills I used, which numbs my hand in just a few min. - SDS-Plus drill bits and accessories are actually superior in producing maximum torque while cheaper to buy than traditional round drill bits. Highly recommended rotary hammer drill, won't go wrong. Probably best in its price category.

    I got this drill to drill holes in huge rocks that were in the way of expanding my vegetable garden. I tried using a regular drill with a masonry bit but after 10 minutes I got just 1/8 of an inch and gave up. This drill with Bosch masonry bits can drill in 6 inches in under a minute! Since then I have found the Bosch bits last longer than DeWalt and have had no issues with using this drill. I have also used the straight hammer with a chisel bit which also worked nicely. In the 3 weeks I've had this drill I have drilled hundreds of holes in rocks and learned to go slow and let the bits cool to make them last longer. I swap out bits after each hole is drilled and that seems to make the bits last longer as it keeps them cooler. Without this drill and the wedges and shims the garden would not be expanded!

          Never need to buy another!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This gets the job done! When my other hammer drill finally died, I said "I'm buying a bulldog!". I had borrowed one from my job anytime I needed a reliable one, and now I have my own.

            This is the second of these I’ve bought. Used for full time construction. It lasted a few years, so I definitely got my money’s worth. No reason to think this new one will give me the same kind of service. I recommend it.

            Bulldog Xtreme Max - Hammer Drill
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been very pleased with the Bosch Hammer Drill. I am normally a DeWalt Tool user. Since Bosch seemed to have the Premier Bits available for the Hammer Drill, I decided to try Bosch. Again, I am more than Satisfied with the Performance and Functions of the Unit.

              The Best by Far
              I used this on the jobsite daily setting over 450 steel door frames with turnbuckle anchoring them in 5000psi hardened concrete, and never had any problems at all as long as you kept it greased like you were supposed to.
