Summary: This was a great buy! I use it almost daily and it continues to work as good as it did when I bought it. The power has been impressive. I used it on 4 inch thick steel, 8 inch concrete, and drilled a tunnel through a two-foot stump, without any problems.
Summary: If this baby was human it would be one of my dearest friends. I can't imagine life without this drill. I'm an electrician and have,gone thru a few drills, chipping hammers, etc. this DeWalt has redefined the term DURABILITY.
Summary: Excellent drill and power. Great for drilling into stone when using the hammer option. Used the drill for boring 3" holes into pine logs and the drill handled it with ease. Great RPM's for using as a polisher and attaching a wire brush to clean rusted metal.
Summary: DeWalt product quality has never disappointed--unlike Makita and some others. The adjustable handle and depth-rod make it easy to hold the drill with both hands, and to gauge the hole depth as drilling progresses. An included carrying case would have boosted the rating to 5 stars.
Summary: The hammer portion of the drill works well, but this isn't as strong as one should expect from a 1/2" drill. I purchased this for drilling 4" holes through drywall and paneling. It only lasted two holes before it broke (the spindle no longer receives power from the motor).
Summary: Very nice tool. Works well. May not be heavy enough commercial use, but fits very nicely in my DIY hand. I've used it extensively to install hurricane panel anchor studs into concrete block and cast concrete systems. Piece of cake. Reasonable price.
Summary: I have tried to mount hose hangers and flagpole holders for years on the brick outside walls of my house... they always fell out after a while of use. I finally woke up and bought this hammerdrill. It pounds while it drills all at the same time. Goes right into the brick morter.
