Overview

Editor's Review: Drilling Concrete? Get a Rotary Hammer

review date: May 1, 2004

This is a light, well-balanced, finely crafted rotary hammer. It has a "smart" switch, which prevents the tool from restarting if power is temporarily interrupted while the switch is locked on. It includes an SDS chuck and a keyless 1/2-in. three-jaw chuck. It was pleasant to use and quiet, and it had relatively low vibration. Even though this tool had no apparent deficiencies, its performance lagged behind the other rotary hammers we tested.
