Lightweight, but durable Hammer Drill. Had to drill a few 3/4" diameter holes about 12" deep, and it never quit! Chewed through the concrete quick!

Good value and worked well. LIght-weight and easy to use. I not only drilled holes in concrete to insert expansion anchors, but I used it to bust out 60-year old concrete to make a door fit. I was very pleased.

Replaced 40+ y/o B&D, significantly lighter weight, nicer/easier reverse switch, variable trigger switch functions well. Used to remove 3 paint layers from 36" steel door plenty of muscle and speed control to do the job. Fits in old drill case so not a problem since DeWalt didn't supply one.

Great Drill
I had difficulty drilling into concrete block with an old variable speed drill. Did some research and decided to try a hammer drill. Went to Home Depot and with an associate's assistance, I selected this DeWALT 1/2in VARIABLE SPEED REVERSIBLE HAMMER DRILL. It has a switch that allows you to go from regular to hammer, and it made the job very easy. The attachable handle and depth guide is easy to add, and for the price I paid it is a great value. For the average homeowner who needs a drill for household projects, you can't go wrong. I recommend this corded drill over battery operated. I expect it to last for many years.

Drill worked for one day. While drilling into a piece of wood, the drill began to smoke, then it sparked from inside the housing. I immediately unplugged the drill, and I returned it for a full refund. While it is an inexpensive hammer drill, I was very disappointed that a brand new drill would be faulty.
