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.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
