The D25263 rotary hammer - thoroughly professional
The new Dewalt D25263 rotary hammer drill proved it's worth on a masonry job that required precise work. The effortless penetration, ease of use and professional design features makes for a great power tool experience. The easy SDS bit chuck works flawlessly. The breaking power of D25263 is second to none in brick and concrete in it's class.
My thanks to DeWalt for engineering another
great power tool at a reasonably pricepoint.

Simply the best!
I got this DEWALT SDS hammer drill and wow. I was blown away by the speed and comfort drilling through concrete. I was installing pallet rack in a big warehouse so I had to drill over 100 1/2" holes 5" deep. I was amazed how smooth and how quick it drill through the concrete. There's no other hammer drill that can compare. I made money that day for sure.

Great tool.
The shocks on the handle made using the SDS hammer easier on my wrist. I had less fatigue and was able to work longer. It really packs a punch too. I use it to take down tiled bathrooms and take up floors for renovations. It's simple to use and reliable. I couldn't be more happy.

We mostly use it for drilling concrete for anchoring walls, etc. On this job we have a house built in 1894 that has a rock foundation. We used it to drill through the floor and rocks to run CAT 5 wiring. It performed well. It's easy to use and saves my crew lot of time and pain. It is a great tool.

Great anti-vibration handle
The vibration isolation handle does a great job of reducing hand fatigue. Also the depth gage is great. Since it has teeth it will not slip as you drill several holes. It's also quick and easy to slide.

Anti-fatigue handle is awesome.
My wife said "not another new toy". I said this is no toy. This things goes through concrete block with ease. I got this right before we had to retrofit a classroom that has cinder block walls. This thing went through with ease and the anti-fatigue feature was noticeable that evening and the next day. My arms were not as tired as when I used the older model without this feature. Will definitely be my go to tool tool for bigger drilling jobs.

The moment I took aim I new this was going to be great. Starting with the balance and light weight it was like holding a compact drill. The power set me straight. We went from drilling in very cured concrete to some very tough porcelain tile and this drill never blinked. Truly a great addition to my arsenal.

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.

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.
