"I agree with all the "Pro" comments I read in other reviews. It is light but on the Hammer setting, I drilled about 60 3/16" holes approx 2 1/2" deep into a very hard block wall to attach furring strips with no bogging down of the (.7 HP) motor. On average, it took me about 10 - 15 seconds to drill each hole. The speed trigger is a tad sensitive but, after a few holes you get the hang of it. The plastic depth stop that comes with the drill is not a great addition. I used the old painter's tape around the drill bit to gauge my hole depth. Bought it on sale and WOULD have even bought it at the regular price (in retrospect)."
"Arrived on time in good shape. It seems to be pretty heavy duty and easy to use. It need a 1/2" Drill every once in awhile and love the Hammer Drill function. I was going to purchase a chuck adapter for My 3/8" Drill, but bought this instead and it didn't cost a lot more. Love to watch for Northern Tool's Sale Items. Thanks!"
"Tools are huge part every technician or electricians trade. This drill will do it all and its a tool you can rely on. We love the simplicity of this hammer drill and don't let its light weight fool you, it has the power and dependability when you need it!
"Occasionally need a hammer drill so for the sale price I felt this would work. Usually drilling concrete takes a while so being a corded drill you can run it for a long time without running out of batteries. It is well made and quite powerful. I have not tested it on concrete yet so I can not rate its performance."
"This is a good all around power-full drill for home projects. it will work well with my recent order of driver bits sockets it will be great to drive lag screws into 4X4's one drill to bore the hole then drive fasteners with hammer drill"
"If you're looking to do any serious drilling in concrete or brick (hammer setting), this drill is not for you. Bogged down terribly while trying to drill 3/16" holes in brick and wasn't much better in mortar joints. Haven't tried wood yet."
"I bought this for a backup when my cordless drill gave out on me. I've used it 5 or 6 times now with no issues whatsoever. It is a little more powerful than I expected. I haven't used it on any kind of masonry yet but I am sure it would buzz right through it given its performance on wood and metal thus far. I would definitely recommend this drill."
"No complaints at all. I didn't need anything special as it's rare that I use a hammer drill, but for the money this one seems pretty nice. The drill seems pretty well built and the grip is sturdy and usable. Plenty of power - does what I need it to. Only issue I noticed is that the chuck doesn't tighten or loosen very smoothly (I have to use the key), but for the price I'm not going to complain."
