  • Bosch Demo Drill #11318EVS

    Got a really good deal on this demo drill. Anyone have this or anything similar? Wondering if I should sell and make a few bucks or keep around?

    It's an excellent tool. You bought that just for the sake of a good deal? I don't really know if you should keep it around. Its primary purpose is chipping and demolishing concrete. Do you ever do any of that kind of work?

      The bummer part is that it's only a demolition hammer, not drill.

      This one is similar in specs to yours but is a hammer drill too which I use to core up to 2 1/2" holes and lighter demolition (it has 1.1 lb less impact energy than yours, no biggie though): http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...ctiveda8554-20


      and this one to core up to 6" inch holes and light demolition:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...ome_19179616_5


      I use this one for heavier demoliton because the motor is centered:http://www.toolbarn.com/product/dewalt/D25900K/


      And this one for the big stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-11304-Br.../dp/B000022462

        Wow, quick replies.

        I didnt just buy it for the sake of a good deal (although it was hard to pass up), I can put it to use for some reno stuff I do off and on.

        I just couldn't find any reviews on these type of demo hammers and thought I would try posting it here.

        I have other drills to do the little stuff. By the sounds of it this thing ought to be good for taking out tile floors and light concrete?

        Anyways, appreciate the replies!

          Tile floors, yes.

          Light concrete, depends what you mean by light. 2" thick topping without wire? Yes.

          A sidewalk/walkway or slab 4" thick with wire mesh, forget it, its too weak.

          You are better of with the 11316evs <---click.
          It has 18.8 ft. lbs. impact energy versus your 8.8.

          I use my smaller gun for more mud gun purposes,hammer drilling/coring, and demolition of tile showers/tubs.

          With my smaller gun, It took forever for one of my helpers to bust off the edge of an over poured footing that oozed out the bottom of the form.
          It was about a foot wide, zero to 4" thick at the slab, no rebar or wire, fresh at 2 months old. Took him 30 minutes to do it. If I had my Dewalt, woulda taken 5.
