This hammer drill has awesome power. I recently used it to put a ledger board on my house to build a deck and had to drill through brick. It made quick work of the project. Finding good drill bits is a another story when drilling through brick but the drill did its job.

Great drill. I purchased this drill to install grab bars in our home shower. Each grab bar required six holes to be drilled through wall tile. This drill made easy work of installing the bars in the shower. I would recommend this drill to any home owner.

Excellent Hammer Function
I use this drill weekly to secure walls to concrete. The hammer function works well with my 1/2" bits and tuns what would normally be a job nobody wants to a job that people don't mind doing on the job site.

Can this drill operate adequately on the smaller 20v batteries or is the 5H required?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use a smaller amp hour battery with the drill. The battery will have to be in the 20 Volt family.
