i have a cordless hammer drill which only gets used if i have to drill 2 or 3 small diameter holes.. anything more and im reaching for the hitachi sds rotary hammer
Exactly. This cordless hammer I've got now seems to do pretty well at establishing pilots for Tapcons. Which is pretty much all I'd reasonably expect it to do. Any more and I'd look to get a corded model.
My main concern was the hammer function on the drill to be finicky or more novelty than useful. I've since used it a couple of times and it's pretty efficient at what I'll be doing with it.
