Why do you need a Hammer Drill?
A Hammer Drill is the perfect tool, for (hammer) drilling and screwing in tough materials, like masonry, stone, and concrete. It is possible to drill a hole or two in masonry, stone, or concrete with a regular drill, but a regular drill is not designed for this purpose. A Hammer Drill, also called a percussion or impact drill, is specially designed for screwing, drilling, and hammer drilling in masonry, stone, concrete, metal, and wood.
How does a SDS+ Hammer Drill work?
The most important function of a Hammer Drill, is the impact drill function. When this function is turned on, you can only impact drill when you put force on the chuck. Inside the Hammer Drill, two discs provide the pounding force of the drill. These discs have ridges. When you put pressure on the chuck, these two discs slides past each other. Thanks to these ridges, one disc rises and falls over the ridges of the other disc. This way the chuck slams forward and back, which causes the hammer drilling. When you turn the hammer drill function off, you can use the Hammer Drill as a normal drill, for drilling and screwing.
What is the difference between a Hammer Drill and a rotary hammer?
The biggest difference between a Hammer Drill and a rotary hammer, is caused by the way they create a pounding force. A rotary hammer creates the pounding force by piston. The piston moves backward and forward inside a cylinder. When the piston is moving forward, it creates air pressure. This air pressure drives the hammer mechanism. A rotary hammer is specially designed for drilling, hammer drilling, or just hammer. A Hammer Drill provides besides the hammer drill function also a screw and normal drill function. A rotary hammer is designed for larger jobs. A Hammer Drill is designed for the common DIY jobs in and around your house. That is why the Hammer Drill suits a DIY enthusiast better than a rotary hammer.
What is SDS+?
SDS stands for Slotted Drive System. It is specially designed for drills, with a impact drill function. A SDS+ drill bit can move forward and backward within the chuck. This way the hammer mechanism acts as a piston and fires the drill bit in your surface. This way the power of a Hammer Drill is more concentrated, which makes your drilling more effective. A SDS+ Drill is suited for drilling in tough materials.
