Customer Reviews

14 Amp SDS-MAX Corded Variable Speed 20 lb. Demolition Hammer w/ Soft Start, Side Handle, Bull Point and Hard Case is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding demolition hammer! I am a professional contractor and found myself in need of a good demolition hammer. I have two other SDS Plus rotary hammers, both Bosch, but neither was truly designed for demolition. After a bit of research I decided on this Makita, as nothing Bosch had in this price range could compare to it. Well, after a week of demo work, I find myself using this Makita over even the big Bosch Brute concrete breaker! The reason I decided on this demo hammer to begin with is because it's powerful enough to bash though concrete, yet nimble and light enough to use on horizontal surfaces and tight areas where the full size concrete breakers simply can't fit. The Bosch Brute breaker definitely has its ideal application, but you can purchase 3 of these Makitas for the price of one of the Brute hammers. Coupled with an 18" bull point bit, this Makita is comfortable to use from even a standing position while working on ground level concrete. The Bosch Brute also only has one setting, too, and that's at 1000 BPM. This Makita has 5 adjustable settings, from 950 BPM up to 1950. In my direct comparison, the added 1000 BPM allows the Makita to actually outperform the Bosch! In addition, you can wield the Makita demo hammer 8+ hours with minimal fatigue in comparison to the 100 pound Bosch brute. As a contractor, there are only a few brands I trust. Makita is definitely one of them. This demo hammer sets a new standard for excellence in this class and price range

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective I am a DIY home improvement guy. I just rented this item for the day with a floor scraper bit. I was able to remove the thinset from the concrete subfloor of a large bathroom in just a few hours. I like the variable speed function. At lower speeds I can control the tool with precision in areas where the material to remove is thin. At higher speeds it easily removes thick layers of material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best demo hammer on the market I am a contractor and rented one if these to take up tile as well as concrete. I loved it so much i went out and bought one myself. It is SUPER powerful and is by far the best demo hammer out there. This is not a roto hammer, just chipping! Ive used other demo hammers and nothing compares to this. When you have used the best demo hammer $ can buy you will be very disapointed and frustrated with anything you use that is not a makita! If you only need to use it for a job here and there i would rent it. But if you plan on using this every week, pay the money because it is worth every penny! Again this is the opinion of a contractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful tool. Breaks through 5 inch thick concrete like... Very powerful tool. Breaks through 5 inch thick concrete like a knife through butter. No regrets with this purchase. I would highly recommend using the 18” point with this jackhammer. 12” point will hurt your back. You will NOT regret buying this tool.
