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. larger chuck diameter
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.
Bosch 11253VSR: 25.4mm
3. Is reversible
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.

4. faster hammering action
The hammering action provides short, rapid hammer thrusts which make drilling faster and easier. The hammering action is measured in blows/beats per minute (bpm) when the drill has no-load.
Makita HP2050F: 58000bpm
5. travel bag is included
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

6. faster drilling speed
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.
DeWalt DW217: 4000rpm
Makita DA4000LR: 143mm
Makita DA4000LR: 82mm
9. Is a rotary hammer drill
A rotary hammer drill delivers a much stronger blow to the bit than a hammer drill due to the built-in piston system. The additional force is unnecessary for most home improvement tasks unless you are looking to reinforce concrete with rebar.

10. cable length
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
Craftsman 28126: 10m
11. higher amperage
The amperage is the strength of an electric current and it is measured in amperes (amps).
Bosch 11316EVS: 14Amps
12. warranty period
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
