    Re: Drill/Hammer Drill Recommendation

    Unless Laz needs to drill lots of good size holes in concrete a true rotary hammer drill and bits just won't pay off. I think he would be far better off to buy a good used spade handle drill for mixing and a Dewalt DW130 while not super duty would work way better than a hammer drill would. You can find loads of them used for sale. As for a new corded hammer drill there are loads of models. Depending on just want kind of use it will get, you can go for a cheaper model if just for DIY work or a serious professional model made in Germany and get a real tool. Some of the better ones MIlwaukee used to have were actually made in the AEG factory for them.

      I have spent plenty of days doing drill runs in brick with a HiltiTE5, at home my Milwaukee Falcon hammerdrill has never failed. Qualtiy SDS bits such as made by Hilti are a must, get what you pay for in my opinion.

        If you are looking for a good corded model, I'd recommend the Makita HR2455. Using our old hammer drill, only my husband could drill for anchor bolts. With this new rotary hammer, I am able to easily do the job. Though I have options, I've been using the Makita drill bits that came with the drill. They work very well.

        Here's a link to a review of the tool. (Be sure to price shop it. I found the cheapest at Tyler Tool, but that may have changed by now.)

          Amazon would be the best choice.
