Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made, very tough construction. I have used one at work for the last 2 years for sanitary sewer manhole repairs. I decided to buy one for my own use at home. July 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 Service Pro's After over 3,000, essentially more than 1/4 of a mile of holes, my RH228VC stopped.I did an online service request, printed out the UPS shipper tags and sent it off late Friday night. By the following Friday UPS delivered it to me.The variable speed trigger switch had been replaced along with a new cord and new bit holder.It is back on line and we are back at it.Fantastic service and the best hammer drill on the market!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brick killer First job I ever had to do with my company was to put some drop in anchors into this brick building they gave me this tool and I loved how quick it went into the brick! July 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Versatile and powerful Without a doubt, this is the go-to tool for about a dozen different tasks. It's light enough to replace your hammer drill, heavy duty enough to function as a chipper, and durable enough to last.I've used this for everything from pre-drilling in bricks to chipping away concrete - and felt confident for a variety of tasks. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features on the RH228VC The RH228VC is a great hammer drill from small holes to large in concrete. I especially like the fact that you can also use it as a chipper for removing tile. Great tool don't know how I got along without it for so long!!! July 26, 2014
