I love the Bosch Bulldog. While working on renovating my house, I originally bought another brand of hammer drill that burned out after a few uses. The repairman said he made a lot of money fixing that brand of tools and that he wouldn't buy one. I had a big tile job in a shower redo. He told me his favorite tool was the Bosch Bulldog because it offered a chipping function along with hammer drilling. At his advice I threw down extra money on this tool. I had the tile removed from that bathroom in about four hours, while the other bathroom took over 26 hours to remove the tile with a hammer and chisle. We used and abused the Bosch over the next several months using the hammer drilling function as well as the hammer alone function and never got a groan from the Bosch. The tool is still in my shed and is always the first one I reach for when I have a big job. I would not recommend the other brand to my worst enemy, but brag on the greatness of the Bosch Bulldog to anyone working on a heavy duty job. Buy this tool with confidence.

Drills through concrete like it's butter

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

I needed to drill some 3/8" holes in a slab of very old hard concrete, and my little hammer-drill just couldn't cut it.
So I got this Bosch SDS Rotary Hammer from HD - and even driving there & back I probably finished the job sooner than if I'd stayed using the litlle drill.

I tried to drill a hole in concrete steps with a battery powered hammer drill for handrails but gave up after an hour. With my new 11255VSR - 1 In. SDS-plus® Bulldog™ Xtreme Rotary Hammer Drill I drilled 8 holes in 5 minutes!

old work horse

By Coot

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

25 years ago, working as a carpenter on commercial buildings we were given this little roto hammer to use and all of us were surprised at how rugged it was. Running 1/4" bits for "pinning" concrete forms it was like cutting butter. Then we used 5/8"-3/4" bits for conc. anchors we were quite surprised at how well it did compared to the larger $500 roto hammers that weighed twice as much and were bulky but powerful.

After 35 years in the commercial building industry this is by far the best all round roto hammer you can have on the job site, at any price. Drilling overhead was less laborious and you didn't need arms the size of stove pipes.

First roto hammer! Now I am lord of concrete

By mr zeebs

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

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

Gave up on drills with concrete/diamond blades. Wasted SO much time thinking those might work. I rented a competitors roto hammer and laughed at how quickly it made powder out of the concrete. Next time I needed to drill and anchor in the slab, I just bought this and never looked back. Very easy on the wrist, pure joy to use.

Smooth and Powerful

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

Spent years thinking that hammer drills were the only option for drilling into concrete. When fighting a piece of aggregate while drilling a 5/8" hole, a friend handed me his to use. Wow. I borrowed it again for some 3/8" holes and then for a bunch of 1/4" holes. Hammer drills are a joke. Next time I needed it, it was time to stop borrowing - I now have one in my portofolio - anyone want to buy my hammer drill?

I just bought the bulldog rotary hammer drill to replace my old one that was 15yrs old. I dont do remodeling any longer so I needed this for projects at home I knew the quality power & ease of use would be perfect for my needs. Honestly this is a great product I highly reccomend it. I have a Bosch circular saw & an old Bosch flush trim saw (cant find the blades any longer)

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

I bought it a week ago to remodel a basement bathroom floor (ceramic tiles) under which the heating cable went bezerk. It ate through the tiles (and when I learned the gentle way: taking them in one piece) and the wire and the auto-levelling concrete in less than a day (80 sq-ft). Works like a charm. I was surprised by the low level of dirt it created.

Popped over 100 square feet of tile from around an in ground pool in less than 2 hours. The rotary hammer was ran almost solid on a hot day and whIle warm to the touch is still good to go. Pro tip: wear gloves. This kind of tool impacts your hand.

By Venecio

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

Ideal tool to have on a HVAC truck for drilling thru concrete walls or basement floors. SDS Plus saves me time spent on the job and i do not have to worry about burning thru several batteries on my cordless. I purchased this on the recommendation of several of my HVAC colleges and happy to use it daily

Wider choice of bits

By Sandman

from Arizona, United States

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

Have used Bosch tools over40 years in the commercial heavy construction industry. This one is not as heavy as past tools, to me means possible lack of performance and penetration. Need a larger choice of bits, can't find the "bush" hammer bit I used. The "SDS" is possibly great, I prefer the old ones. But, it is still a Bosch and I am a dedicated user of Bosch tools. Thank you for all the years.

Absolutely the best

By 1Carpenter

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

I had been using another brand hammer drill for a number of years and was never really satisfied with the effectiveness or power. I had purchased a Bosch hammer drill to use at the school where I was employed and instantly realized the difference in overall performance. I purchased this Bosch hammer drill for my personal use and was duly impressed as I was before, some 12 years ago. Its power and performance are far greater than my previous hammer drill.

Needed something to remove tile and mortar from the floor. Hammer and chisel was slow and involved lots of labor. I'm getting up in years and don't care for working on my knees for long periods. What took three hours to do with the chisel took about 30 min. to do with the rotory hammer.
