I bought the hammer drill to do some work in my basement I had tried to drill the holes was that a waste of time. I had used a Dewalt hammer drill in Trinidad on a mission trip and it was a good tool so I told the wife I am going to get one I finished the job in just a short time because of the speed and ease of using this great tool thank you Dewalt and made is the USA

Easy To Use
Gets the job done
Bought this drill to anchor some stud walls to the slab. Drilled 1/4" holes to install anchor screws. This drill, with an appropriate masonry bit, went through concrete like a twist bit goes through pine.

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.
