Hammer Drills for the Do-It-Yourselfer – 2 Types to Consider

Worker using a drilling power tool on construction site and creating holes in bricksPeople have been used to the old and conventional hammer when doing carpentry. However, if you are rushing to do a project, you can use a hammer drill to be able to work in a faster pace. The Hilti Hammer Drill is suited for people who want to have a heavy duty tool at home. It is equipped with power that can easily drill holes on cement without difficulty. As a matter of fact, TE6-S model can rip and screw anything and is best if you are boring holes on any cemented surface or when you are doing carpentry where screwing is needed.

If you are looking for an impact drill, you can choose the Dewalt DC223KC 24 Volt SDS drill which is ideal when you are drilling anchors or fixing your brick walls. You can fix bricks, concrete and even masonry from 4mm to 22mm. This is also a best buy among numerous customers due to its high power drilling performance. In addition, it has an efficient and compact gearbox that can run in a much longer period of time. It also eliminates user fatigue by having a rubber grip handle.

Another impact drill which you can buy is the Bosch 1194AVSRK. This model is ideal for even the most demanding applications. It has different selector levels that you can choose from such as when you are drilling for steel, wood or aluminum. Other features include, drilling, driving and screw or bit removal. It is also well-loved since it has an ergonomic handle that increases control and gives comfort to weary hands.

Cordless drills are convenient to use since you do not have to plug it in any electric outlet. You can bring it anywhere and use it at any time you wish since it is battery operated. However, the only disparity is when the battery runs out the drill can no longer be used. Electric drills on the other hand can be used within a specific distance from the outlet where it is plug. It works as good as the cordless drills but you cannot use it when electricity is unavailable. There are two types of hammer drills, the percussion and the rotary drill. There is a difference between the drilling performances of the two. The percussion drill can bore holes between 3 and 6 inches up to a depth of 110’ while the rotary drill bores hole at 5 7/8” and 9” up to a depth of 150’.
