Good starter Drill

I've used this drill a few times since purchasing it. I've owned it for a little over a month. It performed like a hammer drill should. I'm very wary about the plastic collar that the perpendicular stabilizing handle mounts to. It doesn't seem adequate enough for such a task. But the drill it self has the right amount of power. I used it to drill about and inch or two into solid concrete. And it went through brick like it was butter. I haven't had any heavy duty drilling beyond a couple of inches of I can't say if it's good for such things. But it seems like it would have the power to hold up.

I do not recommend the craftsman hammer drill

This is the third drill that I have returned to Sears in two days. I started with the 7.5 amp professional hammer drill and moved up to the 8.0 professional hammer drill after the first two drills jamming on the trigger. After jamming, the drill would not stop and almost broke my leg after the bit got jammed and would not shut off. The chuck key design does not hold a bit. Here's a video to show the faults on the chuck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_0np6SBwLA&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Replaced My Skil Hammer Drill

|

Had a similar Skil Hammer Drill that broke down, Skil wanted much more for replacement. Went to Sears and got Craftsman Hammer Drill for less, it worked just as good if not better than old Skill Hammer Drill. Drilled 12 holes in solid reinforced concrete wall 5 inches deep 1/2 inch diameter with no problems, almost like a "hot knife though butter".

Gets the Job Done

|

I own several Craftsman Drills and this is by far my favorite, used it to drill holes into a concrete slab for storage shed, drilled through the cement like a hot knife through butter.

Powerful. Good Value.

|

The on-line price is quite a bit lower than the in-store price even when it is sitting on the shelf in the store. Buy it on-line and pick it up at the store. No problem drilling 6" long 1/2" dia holes into concrete. The chuck uses a key but there is a place to hold the key on the cord next to the handle. For smaller masonry bits, I've noticed that the vibration from hammer drilling will loosen the chuck so I knocked off one star. I also used the regular drill mode to drill into wood and sheet steel. It seem to have a much higher rpm than my cordless DeWalt.

powerful

the hammer drill comes in a hard case, aux handle and depth guide rod. the keyed chuck is closed with an included key and make sure to get in the hole good before you twist or you will strip your tool. make sure it's tight and put it into hammer mode and be sure to use a MASONARY DRILL BIT made of carbide to be able to do what this is intended for. variable trigger allows me to control the speed. drilled about 25 holes into concrete cement to build a patio covering the backyard. the corded option is a must for power demanding tools such as grinders, most types of saws, and heavy duty drills. I did not use the regular drill function because who doesn't have a normal cordless drill? those things are lifesavers
