Not durable
Bought this new to use for my business right out of box made squealing noses when in hammer only mode. Drill and hammer mode seems to work all right.

An absolute beast
Bought a refurbished one to break up a tile floor in the kitchen. About 3/4 through, it froze on me. I figured that's what I get for buying refurbished. I called Bosch, who has, probably, the best tech support I've ever used. They spoke clear English and I received no hassle at all. I got an RMA number and was ready to send it back when a small piece of cement fell out of the tool. To my surprise, it started working again. I can't really blame the tool for this. Every tool is going to have vents and there's a chance debris can fall in the vents. Overall, I'm very impressed with the tool and it's raw power. It made the kitchen floor work much easier. I'm also glad I bought a Bosch, since their tech support is so great.

Finished a large (4986 sq' 14' off ground) structure on the MS Gulf Coast and as you can imagine lots of anchoring to concrete had to take place. Used this tool for the whole project and never let us down.

Balance of Economy and Power
This is really an excellent drill for the price. I use it mostly for side projects and things where I can't justify the cost of a Hilti. For full duty contract work, my company's Hilti is obviously the go-to. This drill does everything it says it will, though it is not the happiest machine ever doing 2" cores. The ability to position a flat chisel at almost any angle makes certain chipping work a lot more convenient, and the secondary handle tightens down well--no slippage at all.

It seems to be holding up nicely to a moderate level of use. And at 1/10th the cost of Hilti, that makes it a really easy choice. Really a very excellent drill.

Excellent hammer drill
Used this to remove tile and a 1 inch mortar bed in a bathroom. Worked great. I didn't do it initially, but I went and bought the tile chisel which is angled and it made a big difference.

This thing has great power and isn't too heavy. My only con is that it did get somewhat hot, but it never slowed down. I have no regrets and would buy it again.
