Does this have a chisel function where rotation can be stopped and just the hammer effect can be used?

Asked by: Kate
NO,This is not a rotary hammer drill like an sds or sds plus,this is a single speed hammer drill,a good one at that but it is a cam activated hammer drill vs a rotary hammer drill that would be a piston activated hammer drill.

1/2 in. Variable Speed Reversible Hammer Drill is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 385.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great $100 drill for small jobs I have two Dewalt DW511 hammer drills.I got this one on sale for $80 at the HD in Melbourne,FL.I am a contractor and I use it mostly for drilling 5/32" and 3/16" holes through concrete slabs ,bricks and block walls (5-10 holes or so at a time) for installing tap cons to anchor wood studs.This drill is great for this task.Occasionally I have used it for drilling up to 1/2" holes through concrete and it did well,but I took my time.It is a small drill and has it's limitations.It's not my $500 Bosch combination hammer drill ,which can drill 1/2" and up holes in concrete slabs all day,quickly without breaking a sweat.All in all,the Dewalt DW511 is a great inexpensive hammer drill for small jobs.If you are looking to drill many 1/2" or larger holes into hard concrete slabs quickly,you will burn this hammer drill out quickly.It is not made for that.Use the right tool for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing ROCKS I had purchased another hammer drill from Home Depot (Ryobi) and went through two of them before realizing they were junk. Took me forever to drill 1 1/2" into a slab in my basement. Almost as if I was hitting rebar, but there was no way I was hitting rebar in every hole I was drilling. The chuck fell off the first one, so I got a replacement. The second one, after 2 hours of use, was so hot, the drill/hammer switch melted and fell off, and the actual switch in the drill melted and resolidified itself locked in hammer mode. I returned the second one and bought this Dewalt Hammer Drill. NIGHT AND DAY! I can drill 6 holes in the time it took me to drill one with the Ryobi - using the bit I took out of my Ryobi I had returned. Very lightweight, but very powerful. It's a shame to think of all the time I wasted not having this drill for the 300+ holes I had to do.

Did what I wanted it to do , I needed to Drill 8 - 7/8 X 5 inch Deep Holes in Solid Concrete to mount Two Steel Bollards in Front of my LP Gas Tank using 3/4 inch expansion Bolts 5 inches long . It took around 25 minutes to Drill the 8 Holes and mount the Bollards . This Drill worked exactly like I wanted it too.

The hammer drill has the power and height quality construction to handle most difficult jobs. Used it to drill into concrete, steel, wood, plastic. Handled all like drilling through butter. Built in the USA makes this a proud tool you will use for many.

The Job: Drill a 1" hole thru a 8" concrete stem wall: Initially used a brand new Ryobi 3/8" hammer drill; It failed- Wouldn't hang on to the bit. Returned that tool to Home Depot, bought the Dewalt 1/2" and got it done. For occasional "home" type projects the Dewalt is the tool to have.

But after drilling thru hardened steel for 15 minutes, using a brand new cobalt bit, slow revolutions, and plenty of oil to lubricate the bit as it cuts, the motor is already making a different sound then when it was new. But it still works. We’ll see for how much longer...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work out of the box This drill is garbage. Straight out of the box the switch didn't work and the drill won't go into hammer mode. A $100 drill. And it can't be returned.
