      Finally upgraded my hammer drill from a B&D Firestorm to the Bulldog. The SDS bits are durable and the drill makes quick work of setting anchors in foundations.

      By CHDinCT

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      Bought this rotary hammer for a basement finishing job and used it to chip out high spots in the cement around some lolly columns as well as drill about 150 holes for Tapcons. Couldn't believe how fast and smooth it drilled through the concrete floor. Just watch out how hard you push using small-sized SDS-plus bits - broke off the 5/32" bit after about 75 holes. That's when I got a chance to drill a few holes with my old 6 amp regular drill. Drilling holes went from about 5-8 seconds to taking a full minute and with a lot more force on my part. Needless to say, I went out and bought some new SDS-plus bits the next day. This was my first Bosch tool of any kind. A short 3-months later and I now own about 5 other Bosch tools. I'm a believer.

      I am over 70. The ground where I live is hard as a rock. My doctor recommended this device. Seems the people who put in her swimming pool used them to break up dirt. Having worn myself out using a pick and digging bar I decided to try it. Works beautifully breaking up ground for postholes.

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      I had to drill some holes in 50 year old concrete and it was harder than granite. I first tried with conventional drills. I burned out the first a 1/2" and gave up after after 2 hours and one hole done with the second drill. I got one of these Bosch 11255VSR drills and within 2 minutes had all of the holes I needed done. It was nicely balanced, easy to change bits rugged

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      This is the newest of three Bosch tools I own and I am impressed with all of them. I was unfamiliar with SDS interface and concerned about having to buy special drill bits, but as an engineer I recognized that decoupling the functions of rotation and hammering would be superior to traditional hammer drills. Although I have only drilled small holes thus far, I'm convinced it is a superior system and the time saved is worth the cost of special tools.

      Purchased for work on concrete at home. Used a larger unit to break the concrete floor but finished the work with my unit for drilling and do the final concrete chipping. Depth gauge is not very strong, so be careful when using it. Very glad to have this unit when doing renovation.

      Have owned and used hammer drills of other top name brands but none compare. This is by far the best on the market thus far. The speed and ease of this drill saves time and money on jobs.

      Functional Features-Easy to Operate-Works Well

      By Krebsie

      from Coal township, PA

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      Usually I did most of my hammer-drill needs with a pistol grip type hammer-drill. Every now and then I wished I had a more robust unit and this Bosch Rotary Hammer was it. It just makes the job so much easier and I'm not abusing my regular pistol style hammer-drill anymore. I just use that for smaller jobs. I recently installed wiring for two split unit AC Units and had to punch through a cinder block wall with a cut stone exterior about 11 inches in all. The Bosch rotary hammer drill made it a breeze. It didn't even struggle using a 2 inch diamond core cutter on an extended reach SDS plus adaptor arbor. Very satisfied with the tools performance overall.

      By Dixie60

      from Iron River, WI, United States

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      I have had my Bulldog extreme for several years and it is the best overall hammer drill I have used. The largest hole I usually drill is 3/4" and it handles that with ease. I like that it reverses in case you get it stuck. Also, the versatility of being able to drill the smallest holes to the larger ones saves you from having to have two drills. I wouldn't trade it for two of somebody elses.

      This hammer drill really has the power to get through the material. It's quieter than the other hammer drills I've owned in the past and powers through everything I've thrown it's way so far. As a contractor, I've got to have tools I can rely on. This does the job!

      The handle hammer hook clip doesn't attach to a ladder very well. Over all I'm pleased with the way the hammer drill works. It feels like a heavy duty drill.

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      I bought this tool after reading about the different types of hammer drills and their reviews. This drill consistently had great reviews. I'm renovating a bathroom and needed to remove about 65sqft of tile and thinset. The drill took up the tile easily in about 30-45 minutes using the 2in tile removing bit. The thinset took longer using the same bit, but did a great job of getting the thinset up. One of the features I liked most was being able to position the drill bit as needed. This feature made it much more comfortable operating the drill in different positions. I feel very confident recommending this tool. It really works well. I have a kitchen to do soon and I'm not worried about the tile removal after having used the drill here.

      Outstanding Rotary Hammer Drill

      By OzarkBilly

      from Hardy, AR.

      Comments about Bosch 7-1/2 Amp SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill (11255VSR):

      Bought this a couple months back to use while building my house.  I have 8" concrete walls in the basement, and 8" blocks filled with concrete as well.  I've had to remove a 'block' of concrete from the 4000psi concrete solid wall, and a couple guys told me 'good luck' on drilling through that!  One of the skeptics said we'll have to use a saw to cut a little at a time, so I handed him my 10" long 1/2" bit and said have a try.  Less than a minute he was through the wall.  His words were, "I've got to have one of these!".  We drilled a few more holes in line and took a sledge hammer and knocked out the block in less than 12 minutes.  Also had to punch a hole through the block/poured wall to run a 3" drain pipe, and went through this wall in about 30-seconds for each hole.  Then use the Bosch wide chisel and pipe fit in nicely!
