Used the dewalt cordless hammer drill the other day , struggled to make(5) 1/2" holes for drop-ins. Put dewalt back in box and grabbed the Hilti cordless (which I didn't know we had at this site), drilled more holes without a problem, huge difference in quality.

That's not really true, you're just brand whoring.

As someone who owns multiple Hilti rotary hammers, I have to admit that there is nothing special and their blow force specs are usually under the competition, while the price is significantly higher.

I won't be buying anymore Hilti rotary hammers.

leaving dewalt out of it, I prefer bosch over hilti. Its just a better drill.
I bought a Hilti TE-60 that costs $900 new.

I could have purchased the comparable Bosch for $500 new AND it has about 30% more blow energy, which makes a big difference.

To top it off, the reviews on the Bosch are better than the reviews for the Hilti.

I'm not brand whoring, I have nothing to gain, Hilti gives me nothing. I do like Hilti, believe it will outperform and outlast any drill on the market. Yes , its pricey, not for the diy'er, but industry wise- that what quality tools cost.

My 18volt ryobi sds will do 5, p1/2" holes no problem. It only cost $89. And has been going strong for 2+ years with a 6 month stint of everyday use. Now if I had to drill 1/2" all day if get my corded Bosch bulldog.

I once chipped out a 10' wide trench of 5000psi concrete that was a 1/4 mile long and 10" thick with nothing but my Boschbulldog and a 12 pack of code red Mountain Dew. Yeah, that's the ticket.
It's a little-known fact that the Chunnel was actually bored with a Bosch Bulldog. That fancy boring rig was just a platform for a French guy to stand on.

My Kango demolition hammer finally died. They don't sell any Kango replacement parts anymore, that company closed.


Damn they were fine concrete breakers.. :(
