if you use the drills for hammer drilling... I don't trust cordless... just don't think it has enough power for the job... I might be wrong... but I think hammer drilling need corded power.... I think it is provided in the market just give people has an idea they got a more powerful tool even they don't use that feature....

Cordless hammer drills are a little iffy. However, Bosch's generally beat out the competition. Check Tools of The Trade's site. I'm pretty sure you will find your answer.

I've used both the makita and the bosch, and the bosch wins. That said, I haven't bought one, and for more than a small hole I'm sure I'd pull out an AC tool. The cordless hammer drills in my opinion aren't there yet.
