The Bosch 11255VSR SDS-plus® Bulldog™ Xtreme 1 In. Rotary Hammer is a versatile, handy tool that features a robust 8.0 Amp motor. From anchoring to large material breaking, it gets the job done right the first time. Engineered in the tradition of legendary Bulldogs, this powerful hammer delivers 2.0 Ft.-Lbs. of impact energy and 0-5,800 no-load BPM, but it weighs just 6.7 Lbs. The multifunction mode selector allows users to easily select among three modes of operation: rotary hammer, rotation only and hammer only. To optimize the chiseling angle, it has Vario-Lock positioning that rotates and locks the chisel in one of 36 different positions. It is Bosch’s PRO+GUARD™ dust system, helping users move toward OSHA Silica Table 1 dust compliance. The hammer is designed with an ergonomic D-handle for comfort. It features a variable-speed reversing trigger for accurate bit starting, and a Bosch-exclusive rotating brush plate, for equal power in forward and reverse. Busy pros will appreciate the tool's HammerHook, which allows the user to hang the tool on the job, and the SDS-plus® system provides for tool-free bit changes.

I have tried other Rotary Hammer, but this one is the best because of its performance and users safety for the smooth vibrations avoiding mistreatment of hands and arms of the person using it, but they are effective on the field. Its size and weight are ideal for the use of the demolitions I personally have realized

Had to drive some deep tapcons into the sill of the barn to stabilize a wall that had come loose. This is old crappy 1950's concrete with real rocks in it. The Bosch cut through it like butter. Left a smooth precise hole even when hitting the rocks inside. Very smooth to hold without a lot of vibration in the handle (even though it is not a padded handle) allowing easier handling without fatigue. My only very minor gripe is with the depth gauge which wobbles a tiny bit (again not a big deal, but while the pushbutton lock is nice, it doesn't seem to hold it particularly rigidly)

Worked for exactly one week
This hammer drill seemed to be working fine, right up to the point where the chuck came apart in pieces. Took me a half hour to get the $35 bit out so i can return to the store. Of course, they are out of this item now and i am going to purchase a different brand

    It's not powerful enough for me - Asphalt removal
    I have high expectation for SDS Plus, but for what I used on asphalt removal, it was definitely NOT powerful enough. I tried 3 different brand new chisel bits and the results were the same - VERY SLOW. Don't get it wrong, this is still a good tool, it should be good for drilling concrete for most home owners and DIY people, but for demolition work definitely this is way under powered. SDS MAX or a real demolition hammer maybe a better choice in my case. I believe this SDS Plus rotary hammer drill is good for light duty stuff like Tiles removal, but absolutely not on concrete or asphalt removal work.

    Simply Amazing! Cuts through concrete like wood, so quick and smooth
    I read all the reviews and chose the Bosch Bulldog Xtreme 8 amp corded variable speec SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer drill. I needed to drill 5” inch holes through concrete to sink 1/2 inch mounting bolts to secure the base mounts of a large gazebo. Using my old power drill, it took 30 plus minutes per hole and the drill bit slip away from the intended hole when it hit rocks. With the Bulldog Xtreme, i cut straight perfect holes, no slippage, no mistakes. You will not believe the accuracy, ease and speed until you use this simply amazing rotary hammer drill, I did create a jig using 1/2 plywood with 4 pre drilled joles to make sure the mounting bracket holes were properly aligned, which allowed me to drill perfectly placed holes.

      I just got this drill this past weekend in order to drill out a 50 year old concrete stoop with termites underneath. I needed to drill multiple 1/2" wide holes 10" apart and 18" deep. This drill handled it with ease. I predrilled each hole with a 5/16, 6" deep bit, then used the 18" bit. It took me maybe 20 minutes to drill all the holes. Power was never an issue, and I just let the drill do the work, I didn't push too hard. It takes SDS and SDS Plus bits which are very common. I alsu purchesd a chisel bit to clear out extra concrete from an extension and it's pushed through that with no problem either. Not sure if this is a contractor level tool, but for home use it definitely fits the bill. Unable to add video to my review, but here's the link: https://youtu.be/Zl-zBskJlJM

        I am doing a pit set manufactured home for my son and daughter in law. I had 54 1/2" x 5" holes to drill in the concrete reinforced slab. The first 3 holes took almost 2 hours to drill and the new bits were trash. After purchasing the Bosch Bulldog extreme it took between 12 to 16 seconds per hole. After 51 holes the bit is going strong. Thank you Bosch and Home DePot.

        Great Product
        Used the Bosch to demo my guest bathroom, it handle the tile removal no problem. It also handle the demo of the floating walls all the way to the studs. Did pretty good job on floor, but had to borrow the bigger Bosch brother to remove the hot mop shower floor. Great with the wide blade for tile removal ..so easy would recommend!

                        Well...
                        I originally bought the "red brand" Rotary SDS, it gave up the ghost in a few minutes of use. Returned and went with the Bosch 1 inch SDS, so far so good. I greased the end of the drill shaft where it installs in the rotary chuck and went to work. The Bosch made short order of the 50 year old concrete block I was punching a 7" hole through in my basement for a new run of duct work. I used the 3/8" x 12" Bosch rotary drill, it made quick work of that tough old block. I did rest the drill after say half a dozen holes, she did get pretty warm, so go easy on her. And let the tool do the work, no need to muscle or force it, this rotary is made of plastic. It seemed pretty well balanced, the weight was not too much, about what I expected out of a plastic rotary drill. it was easy to control and handle. Nothing really stood out, good or bad. I was doing overhead work in between the floor joists, it got the job done. I did not use the chisel feature, I just bored hole after hole and knocked it out with a small sledge hammer. This was some tough old concrete block, not this garbage block you buy today that falls apart when you pick it up. I doubt the chisel would have done much, this is a home owner rotary, and this was some seriously dense concrete, easier to bore then chisel. I can see the chisel being used to scrape tiles, or for use in newer porous concrete/block of lesser quality, like is common today. If you need to break up a floor, go rent an electric jack hammer. All in all, this is a good homeowner unit for occasionally drilling a few holes in block or concrete to sink anchors, punching holes or scraping tile. If you are a professional, this is good enough for occasional use for say a professional handyman. If I was in need of something to use everyday or every week, go with a professional model, as I doubt this would hold up very long in the field. I will keep it, hopefully it holds up for these little jobs around the house I will be using it for. One thing, open the box and inspect that you are receiving the correct tool in the box, and that it is not used, do it at the store before you leave in front of a Home Depot associate.

                                      This tool saved me a lot of $. I installed a pool safett cover to replace my 20 year old one. I drilled 24 holes using the impact drill and a Bosch drill bit ( made in germany) I could open a business doing this with these tools!! The grinder was a surprise benefit!! I sharpened my own mower blade and saved some $$ Highly recommend. Powerful, did job with no fuss at all.
