General info

1.Is a hammer drill
Bosch HDB180-02
Craftsman 17217
A hammer drill contains a hammer clutch or a hammer-like mechanism which provides a circular rotation and a forward driving force. A hammer drill is capable of performing heavy-duty tasks, but it can also be used as a regular power drill.
2.Is reversible

Craftsman 17217
A reversible drill can alter its rotations from a clockwise direction to a counter clockwise direction, a feature that makes it suitable for both drilling and driving.
3.Is cordless

236mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.weight

4.26kg

1.81kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
6.width

362mm

279mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

9.5mm

9.5mm

The chuck holds the drill bits or other rotary tools and its diameter determines the types of bits and tools that the drill can use. A larger chuck is compatible with a wider range of bits and tools.

A drill with variable speed allows you to switch between low and high speeds, giving you the possibility to take on a wider range of tasks.
2.maximum drilling speed

1450rpm

4000rpm

Higher speeds work better for drilling holes in certain types of material, such as steel, aluminium, concrete, etc. The drill speed is measured in rotations per minute (rpm) when the drill has no-load.
