For a reasonable priced hammer drill this held up nice. I had to drill forty five 3/8″ holes 4″ deep in a concrete footer. The foorter was heavy with rock in the mix and the drill managed the job well. Still running strong. If your bit isn’t cutting toos it and grab a new bit to save wear and tear on your drill. Once the bit’s carbide tip goes dull it’s useless and you are just beating your drill up.

Drilled into concrete ceiling, I’m happy.

We live in a condo and have a concrete ceiling. We finally decided to replace our blinds with some blackout shades but because of the design mounting the brackets into the ceiling was out only option. The holes drilled for our previous blinds wouldn’t work as well because the new blinds required the brackets be moved in a little bit. I ordered this drill because my Black & Decker HPD 18AK-2 18 Volt wasn’t getting the job done. I’m so glad I did, the Dewalt DW511 1/2″ (13mm) 7.8 Amo VSR Hammerdrill drilled into our concrete ceiling just fine. Don’t expect it to drill with ease if drilling into concrete, after all, it is concrete. However, you will get the job done much faster than using a drill like the Black & Decker drill I mentioned above.

First rate tool! Made in the USA, too!

I bought this because I had a flooring project at my house in which I had to drill plywood and concrete to place a subfloor over concrete. I had another hammer drill I was using, but it was 25 years old. It was working fine, but I just wanted to have a backup in case I had a problem. I was using three drills (one to drill the plywood & concrete, one to countersink the holes, and one to screw in the concrete screws). As luck would have it, the old drill quit working. I got out the DeWalt drill, and it was SO much better than the old one. Smaller, lighter, and probably more powerful. The hammer action seemed better, too. The built in stop is a nice feature, also. It made a tedious job much faster. I’m really glad I bought this one. I recommend this drill highly! I had no problems with the chuck loosening, or anything, for that matter.

Reliable, Powerful

Despite all of the cordless models out there, sometimes you just the power. If you have to get a couple boxes of 3 inch deck screws put down, or literally drill into cement (hammer feature), this is the tool of choice. This I prefer this 7.8 over the larger 10 as a good balance of weight and power that won’t break your wrists when it gets sideways. I recommend changing over to the keyless chuck ($25 separately)

Weak hammerdrill, okay for soft masonry

 on May 12, 2013
By Greg Ames
Decent 1/2″ drill for general use, though it quickly gets hot enough around the motor that you don’t want to hold on to it except at the handles. The hammerdrill will go through soft masonry like brick & new concrete made with limestone. The drill is inadequate for anything hard like concrete made with hard rock. Like many general purpose drills with a hammer option, the hammer option is weak. In hard masonry it is very, very slow going. Bits get hot & wear down fast. Maybe if one only had a very occasional need a for small hole in hard masonry, this drill might be worth struggling with & wasting bits. For larger holes or or for drilling a number of holes, if one would add the cost of prematurely wearing out bits to the cost of the drill, it would end up being cheaper to buy a SDS from the beginning. Dewalt’s 6.9 amp SDS will easily pound through concrete where this 7.8 amp will just sit there & overheat the bit.

A good friend in a tool bag.

If this baby was human it would be one of my dearest friends. I can’t imagine life without this drill. I’m an electrician and have,gone thru a few drills, chipping hammers, etc. this DeWalt has redefined the term DURABILITY. One thing is to get your money’s worth and it’s another to get a whole lot more performance than expected from a “non-industrial” drill. Precision? You have no idea how much. I can go on for ever so I will stop by saying I’m a happy camper.

Finally get to finish my project

I am so happy to get this! Am mounting metal pegboard in garage and my regular drill couldn’t handle the cinder block walls. Love the guide on it. It’s a bare tool. No other attachments or carry case, but seems to be powerful enough to handle any job.

Works well

Used for multiple holes in brick and worked well. Really like the metal handle attachment and depth rod. Way better than the plastic one that this drill replaced. Must use key to tighten bits but works for me.

Made drilling a cement floor very simple

By Scott McAfoos
I’ve tried to drill cement / concrete before with proper bits and a standard drill, and its always been a bear. Finally broke down and got this drill and wow. I didn’t realize how easy drilling masonry could be. Super happy with it. Its I’m first hammer drill, so I don’t have a proper comparison, but I couldn’t imagine drilling masonry to be easier yet.

Strong. Does the job.

Works for its intended purpose. Had some problems with the trigger at first where it would get locked and I could only pull it part way. Took it apart and it started working again. Has been fine since then.
