    Yea Brad it’s a all around winner! If your lookin at the one on the list, it’s the newest one that is the BullDog Extreme Max 1 1/8″ rotro hammer.

    Yup, it’s going to be my next goal after my router bits.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I am not sure it would work well for hogging out holes in lumber. I think a drill more like this would work better, I have never really used a Hammer drill in wood. These have a slow speed and lots of power. I see my plumbers and heating guys drilling 4″ holes with them all the time. I could not find something similar on the ?Bosch site,

    You lookin at a BullDog Dabbs?

    Well……….Maybe but it’s not real high on the wish list yet. There’s been times when I needed one and I’m sure they’ll be more

    I didn’t have a rotro hammer drill that size. The rotro hammer drill I have is a 7/8th Hitachi and it works great. It’s just a rotro hammer tho and not a demo hammer.

    Has anybody used this drill with the adapter for the regular drill bits. I like the fact you can choose what mode to use the tool in.

    NO, I haven’t. I see the adapter for sale at HD but carry a ½” drill for that stuff.

    I’ve never used a roto hammer, just a hammer drill. Is the roto hammer that much better?

    I have a SDS pluscadapter for a 1/2″chuck. They don’t recommend using the chuck in hammer mode. Drilling smaller holes works fine, and driving screws works well, but it doesn’t seem to have the power for large holes.

    Yup, a whole different animal according to all the stuff I have read. This unit doesn’t get a bad review.

    Thanks Kurt, that’s good info.

    Absolutely – you will wonder why you ever spent time trying to drill holes in concrete with a regular hammer drill once you try a rotary hammer drill.

    I just want to double check, but can you use all of the different drilling modes with an adapter?

    I think with the adapter, it’s for regular drill mode only. It’s to hold regular bits/drill so that makes sense.

    Which one are you using? I’m thinking about the 18V to add to my collection.

    If i had to drill a ton of holes i wouldnt think twice about getting a rot hammer to do it – but i just dont have a ton of holes to drill in concrete….yet…. 🙂 but when i do, Bosch it is.

    I keep lookig at it on the list as a backup for my Bosch 18v rotary hammer, but can’t justify it. I have four batteries for the cordless so that will take care of anything I have to do.
