  1. Drills effortlessly through concrete Review by OhsContracting

    I highly reccommend this rotary hammer drill. I drill numerous anchor holes into concrete slab and this tool is a breeze. It drills fast. It has low noise output. It also has a handy clip on the handle for hooking it onto ladders, rafters,etc. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  2. Unbelieveable Tool Review by Honcho

    I am re-doing a bathroom that requires changing the plumbing. The guy that built this poured eight inches of concrete with rebar added and on top of one to two feet of large rocks and even complete automobile frames. All this made it almost impossible to demolition. I bought the extreme max and a 3/8 X 10 inch extreme max drill bit. Drilled down the full 10" every 3/4 of an inch and the used demolition hammer. First cut, I drilled about eighty holes. This tool is amazing!! It was like drilling through wood instead of concrete, rebar, large rooks and automobile frames. The second cut I did the same thing only drilling more holes and this time cross drilling. I could have never done this job without the Extreme Max. I can't say how long the tool will hold up but it sure did this job and the drill bit is still good to drill more holes. I know that no one will believe this story because those I have shared it with can't believe that anyone would build this way, but its true and I have pictures to back it up. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  3. A breeze Review by PABaz

    After burning the motor of my hammer drill, I decided to switch for a rotary hammer. What a difference it makes. Drilling in concrete with this tool is a breeze. I particularly enjoy the vibration dampening feature that works very well. The smooth switch allows to finely control the speed for brittle material such as adobe bricks, or to precisely starts the hole.
    It will be nice if the depth gage has an elbow so it can be positioned closer to the drill bit end. And I am sad that I can not use my old drill bit set with straight shanks.
    Only time will tell about the overall quality of the tool, but I have never been disappointed by Bosch tools so far. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  4. Very Versatile Tool Review by Arturo

    I used this rotary hammer to remove old tiles and scrape off tile/carpet glue from concrete floor using appropriate tile remover tip. I then used it to drill and put screws through concrete for doing kitchen island single-handed. Very high quality and the price was worth it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  5. So far so Awesome Review by Mason

    Had this beauty for a month now , and used it for drilling @400 1/4 and 5/32 holes in hard concrete , ran perfect , better than my old falcon . Also used for chipping concrete that came out from forms in allot of spots , worked flawlessly . the tool is solid and I expect it to last longer than my other choices . I'm not a typist but this tool deserves the time . (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  6. Disapointed Review by Nanna6

    The gentleman at Lowe's told me that buying this much more expensive tool would have more power and get the small portion of a rock that I needed to break up, done in no time. That was very untrue. It took a few hours. For the cost of the tool, and the attachments, I would have thought that it would have per formed so much more efficiently. (Posted on 9/26/2013)
