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.

I used this tool all of 2 days set (27) 1/2" anchors 3" depth and then 6 more the next day. The collar broke off but it was still usable then the chuck failed. I replaced the chuck and it is still usable. Not the quality I have come to expect from BOSCH.

This is the perfect tool for drilling into cement.

By cyberaj

from Calgary, AB, Canada

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

I bought this tool in the process of installing a sub-floor in my basement. The Hammer drill I was using for drilling holes for tapcon screws was not working at all. I decided to purchase this tool and what a difference. It was like drilling through butter. I am also using it for removing thinset. This is a great tool.

Makes drilling holes in cement a breeze.

By Bob6185

from Tucson, AZ, United States

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

I had 130 holes to drill to anchor large storage racks in a warehouse. My old hammer drill had trouble drilling the holes and went through many bits to get 20 holes done before dying. This hammer drill with an SDS drill bit for either 3/8" or 1/2" holes was recommended to me. I could not believe how easy it drilled the holes. I only needed 1 of each size bit to get the job done. It drills the holes effortlessly.

Works like a Champ!

By Mad Shirt Grinder

from Carmel Valley, CA, United States

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

I used this rotohammer to remove mortar from a river rock patio and long walkway. Spent three days chipping tons of cement off of rocks and braking up the patio. Great machine for the $! Light and easy to use and maneuver. Basically a pro by the time we were done with that project and met all my expectations.

Such a great tool!

By Woodshed

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

I have always strived to only purchase tools and machines that only have the highest quality cause I don't want the down time on a faulty tool. The Bosch drill has not be disappointing in the least. Also purchased the three jawed chuck accessory that allows me to use smaller hammer drills and large bore wood bits. Lots of power and no problems even with extensive use. Fantastic purchase!

Excellent

By Roze

from Texas, United States

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

Even though I put Excellent I didn't mean it! Bosch products are not good. They break within a year or two. We have bought lots of expensive power tools because we install flooring and we cannot get our money back or the one year warranty has already expired. They also want the product registered within 8 weeks of purchase. Other companies offer 2 to 3 year warranties. I have lots of Bosch tools laying around that do not work! Never wasting my money again!

I've had this drill/mini jackhammer for just over two years, I've never had a real bulldog before, but if performs anything like this tool then it's worth having.

I am a professional handyman, and I use this hammer drill on some tough jobs. Works great. Drills through reinforced concrete blocks and mortar like going through butter. I have several Bosch tools and am pleased with all of them.

Versatile, Powerful & Tough

By Tom at the Canyon

from Page, Az

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

I use this tool in a remote work location, has performed efficently in every task I've used it for including drilling and extensive concrete demolition. Nothing has stopped it yet. Has good ergonomics with minimal vibration. Upgraded from an older Bosch with the rotating hammer function only, it still runs well. When the job is demanding and you need the best hammer drill available you want Bosch.

Not for commercial work

By Ike1

from Warner Robins, GA, United States

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

Drilled about 60 holes, 1/2" x 6" deep and it quit hammering. The drill looks new but did not hold up. It may work great for weekend jobs or around the house but don't expect to make a living using it.

Verified Buyer

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

Bought about 5 months ago. First job used to drill 50 9 inch deep 1/2 inch thick in solid stone. Not a problem. Moderate pressure with one hand is enough to do most jobs. Fits into tighter places than the bulldog does. Was also impressed with the chiseling action. Guys at work still have hammer drills but they cannot keep up. they have to use a lot of pressure. I have actually hammered some 1/4 inch holes 6inch deep with one hand while talking on cell phone with other with no effort. Thanks for building a great tool

Outstanding drill

By Brackers

from Ontario, Canada

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

I needed to install 6 bicycle storage racks in work and used my regular hammer drill with little success, I needed 3/4" holes in hard concrete. I rented this drill from a local hardware store, and literally like cutting through butter. I will be getting one of these very soon, a great drill.

Time saver.

By GeneP

from Marshfield, WI, United States

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

I've had this about a month and though was only used several times it sure saved time going through brick walls and mounting outside fixtures. I didn't need anything to big or heavy as most of the time I'll be using a ladder so the hammerhook did and will be handy. The SDS adapter was also purchased thus enabling the use of my existing cement bits.

After two days of hard work the brush plate was burnt and it would not work in reverse. I took a piece of copper pipe and made a new plate and it is still working. I keep it for a spare. We bought a heaver Bosch and it works great.

Rugged reliability

By htdoctor

from Phoenix AZ

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

I bought the Bulldog to replace a Bosch hammer drill that was stolen out of my truck a year and a half ago. I had the old one for 15 years and it was still going strong. So far, the new one is just as rugged and reliable as the old one, and I expect it to last at least until this one gets ripped off!

Excellent power and performance amazing!

By OleDD

from Carrollton, GA, United States

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

Purchased few days ago to drill 8-10 holes into 4 in concrete. Only had this unit for a few days so can not speak to the longevity of the unit. The reviews were spot on. Unit really impressed with 30-40 sec per hole. Let the hammer drill do the work not you. Depth gauge handy and thankfully not plastic. Chuck was a bit tight. Hard time getting the bit in there the first time. However with time this will loosen up.

Planted 500 tulip bulbs without breaking a sweat!

By tjpeden

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

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

I am a homeowner with lots of gardens and flowerbeds. I used plant tulip bulbs every fall by hand. It was backbreaking and monotonous. I upgraded a few years later to a corded hand drill with a dirt auger. I burned out the motor on that drill and its replacement. This year, I upgraded to the Bosch 11255VSR. I was also ambitious and decided to plant 500 tulip bulbs this year. I wanted to see what the drill could do. And it did not disappoint. This is my first time owning a Bosch hammerdrill. It is well constructed. Everything about it seems well made and solid. I liked the SDS-plus attachment system, although I did have to buy an adapter so I could still use the dirt auger. As soon as Bosch makes an SDS-type dirt auger, I will buy that. The drill is incredibly powerful and turned the hard soil up with ease. The side handle made holding it while drilling comfortable. Both my wife and I took turns planting, not because we needed a break but because the other person wanted to try it out and it was so much fun. We have some tile to scrape up in our basement and I think my Bosch will work perfectly for that. I bought an SDS-plus spade bit and a scraper bit. They also seem well made, although I haven't used them yet. Those bits were not inexpensive, but when I think of the total package cost compared to the time that I saved and that fact that I am not going to burn through any more hand drills, the cost was easily justified.

Bulldog, The best pet I've ever had.

By Wardy46

from Cochecton, NY

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

I bought the Bulldog about a year ago and am very happy with this product. As a homeowner I don't have a chance to use it on a daily basis but when I do need it, it works flawlessly. I've never had a problem with this hammer drill and have used it for anchoring items in concrete to getting rid of tile floors. Definitely a well made tool.
