Answer: 
Per information found online, A hammer drill has a specially designed clutch that allows it to not only spin the drill bit, but also to punch it in and out (along the axis of the bit). The actual distance the bit travels in and out and the force of its blow are both very small, and the hammering action is very rapid—thousands of "BPM" (blows per minute) or "IPM" (impacts per minute). Although each blow is of relatively low force, these thousands of blows per minute are more than adequate to break up concrete or brick, using the masonry drill bit's carbide wedge to pulverize it for the spiral flutes to whisk away. For this reason, a hammer drill drills much faster than a regular drill through concrete or brick. Hammer drills almost always have a lever or switch that locks off the special "hammer clutch," turning the tool into a conventional drill for wood or metal work. Hammer drills are more expensive and more bulky than regular drills, but are preferable for applications where the material to be drilled—concrete block or wood studs—is unknown.
If you are in need of additional assistance please contact our customer service department at 1-800-Grainger and request to speak with our technical product support.

Answer: 
Almost always, a hammer drill is used for boring a hole in concrete. This is accomlished in conjunction with a carbide- tipped drilll bit. Carbide being VERY hard,will pulverize the cement and rock in the concrete when the Hammer stroke of the drill drives the bit against it. The rotating of the bit is used to draw the fragmented concrete out of the hole. SOME hammer drills can turn off the rotating of the drill bit, at which time you could place a chisel bit in the drill and have a power chisel. Most hammer drills can be set to: 1. rotate only,. 2. rotate and hammer at the same time. 3. Rarely, a hammer drill will have a hammer only setting.
