Dewalt Hammer Drill Disassembled

Video Length: 2:34
Produced by: John Ross, Edited by Cari Delahanty


You may have seen the Tool Hound video explaining the ins and outs of the speed, mode, and clutch settings on your hammer drill/driver. Well, for a recent feature in the magazine, we took it one step further. Yes, the folks at DeWalt were kind (crazy?) enough to give us a drill, knowing that our only intention was to completely dissect the tool to discover what makes a hammer drill …well, hammer. Fellow editor Rob Yagid was kind enough to step in front of the camera and walk me through the complicated series of gears and shafts that provide the magic behind the hammer mode of a drill.

 Update:

Luckily the world is not a place of absolutes. Want an article instead of a video? You got it. FHB # 208 pp. 16-17 How it Works by Rob Yagid and on pp. 50-55 of that same issue a reveiw on 18v Li Ion Hammer Drills.
