Dewalt shocks system great for productivity
I have had and used several rotary hammers over the years from different manufactures, all of which did a good job of drilling holes in concrete. The Dewalt D-Handle SDS+ 1-1/8 Rotary Hammer is a step above all the rest in a couple ways. For general use drilling holes in masonry, it did an excellent job, not unlike many I have used in the past. What sets it above those however is the shocks system. The vibration (or lack thereof was a night and day difference from previous rotary hammers I've used. It made such a big difference that I was able to do twice as much work before needing a break. It especially great for applications like removing ceramic tile using a chisel. I was blown away at how much more work I could get done with the Dewalt. In the past, 30 minutes of chiseling and my hands felt like they were going to fall off. With the Dewalt, I could keep going. While I didn't purchase one, Dewalt does offer a dust extraction system for this rotary hammer. If I did a lot of interior work I would consider buying one. In terms of durability, I used this rotary hammer for a month on several jobs and never had a single problem. Overall a great unit and worth your consideration.

The D-handle hammer drill is incredibly durable, easy to use, and is now my go-to hammer drill. It’s very well-built and has stood up to everything thrown at it thus far. I appreciate the reduced vibration as well. This tool speaks for itself.

I just bought this because I needed one and didn't want to keep borrowing my friends Bosh Rotohammer. Tried to use a power nailer to nail plywood strips into a concrete floor that was poured in the late 60s and early 70s and the nails would just bend and not even go into the concrete because it was so hard. The Dewalt drilled through the concrete like it was butter and with no vibration like other Rotohammers that I have used. I read a report that the only cons on this tool was Noise and Not very powerful which is not the case with this tool at all. Very Pleased. Thankyou Dewalt.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
