True, but one that does not do a single task well. You may be able to drill holes in, or break up concrete, but not at the same rate as one of the big brutes. Same thing with the rod driver. A chipping hammer may be handy for busting up a bit of concrete, but would burn up taking out a sidewalk.

It all depends on what your needs are, however. If light drilling and chipping is needed more than driving rods or taking out your driveway, then a hammer drill or shipping hammer works best.
