          General info
          Hammer drillA 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.

          Chuck
          Larger chuck diameterThe 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.

          Performance
          Faster drilling speedHigher 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.
