Very fine tool, nearly perfect.
Beautiful little tool, perfect balance between power and weight. One thing I didn't love, is the depth stop rod, which seems to hold solidly enough for now, is a little loose because of the way it is held in place (a toothed edge that engages with a spring-loaded toothed clip.) Time will tell.

As good as everyone says
When I started looking for a rotary hammer drill, this product stood out based on the great reviews everyone gave it. I'm sure there are products that are better, but I doubt there are any better that are in this price range. It REALLY is a good as everyone says. So far, I've only used it to break through concrete slab in my house to install new plumbing, but it's performed exactly as I'd hoped. Really a solid tool.

This is not my first and not the last tool. At each project, it is necessary to have. Based on the fact that Makita has risen in price, I chose Bosch. But I am concerned that after, about 20 minutes. drilling a concrete wall with a 5/8 drill beat, it warmed up like an iron and began to smell like overheated metal. We must assume that this is not the tool that can perform volume work. Even within promised specifications. It's a pity.

So far so good
Haven't used Bosch roto-hammer products for quite a few years when I used to do Industrial Electrical work. I recently purchased for my handyman/renovation business mostly for tile removal work as well as replacement of damaged/frozen water spigots on homes, where the 1 1/8" hammer drill bit will come into benefit, so we never have to hand chisel brick openings any longer to accommodate new frost free spigots we use. Just purchased a nice set of chisel tips and drill bits for this tool as well from Bosch.

This tool I purchased actually on a Black Friday special deal recently (at Lowes where they only had 6 for sale, which were not the normal Bosch 1" max hammerdrills they sell, and this would accommodate up to 1 1/8" SDS bit , a larger motor, plus was manufactured in Germany, and reason I decided to purchase it.

Nice hammer drill
I like the drill But sometime the trigger seem a little slow to respond. Other than that I like it. It’s less than a month old.

Strong to the finish.
The tough job of removing old ceramic tile was made easy compared to the hammer and chisel we started with. Since we had a fairly large area of excessive tile set to remove it took two days but the Bosch never quit.
