DeWalt Rotary Hammers
Hammer drills are useful for boring into concrete and other thick, brittle surfaces. You can use hammer drills to chip into concrete or drill holes of nearly any gauge into stucco, steel and concrete foundations. The complete line of DEWALT® Rotary Hammers can be used for heavy-duty construction jobs as well as some home remodeling and home improvement projects. These powerful tools are popular for their flexibility in completing all types of tough jobs.
The most powerful hammer drills are SDS combination hammer drills. These drills require less pressure to get through thick surfaces and work quickly. Heavy shock absorbers keep the operation smooth and help prevent fatigue. For tough jobs, look for D-handle designs with extra rotary shocks. DEWALT has a very wide selection of SDS hammer drills to help you complete your next project.
Key features on most corded hammer drills include selection knobs to toggle between hammer drilling, rotary drilling and chipping functions. Variable speed triggers offer optimal control while working. Spline demolition hammers have superior chipping and tearing performance when cutting into drywall, plaster, concrete and more. Check out the complete array of DEWALT impact ready accessories for chisels, impact drill bits and more. If you need to drill directly into metal, look for SDS hammer drills that are designed to drill at least 1/2-inch or more into steel.
SDS hammer drills operate at high RPMs and have larger motors than standard drills. They are therefore mostly available solely in corded varieties. For cordless drills, check out the complete line of DEWALT drills for other construction and finishing tasks.
Rotary hammers are more commonly used in the construction trades, but can be useful for skilled home improvement specialists who need to do a quick tear down or drill into concrete for any reason. The complete line of DEWALT power tools can help both professionals and homeowners finish important tasks quickly and efficiently.
