Review – Bosch 11258VSR 4.8 amp 5/8-Inch SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer Drill

Bosch 11258VSR 4.8 amp 5/8-Inch SDS-Plus Rotary Hammer Drill

The New Bosch 11258VSR is a dual mode, drilling with hammer and rotary only mode, SDS-plus drill with a 4.8 Amp high-torque motor and powerful impact mechanism, having an overload clutch to protect the user and reverse makes this a very versatile drill for plumbers and electricians. Also, this tools features a Compact Design at 11.8″ in length and 4.6 lbs in weight, the tool is perfect for drilling applications in hard to reach spaces or overhead, Variable speed trigger for accurate bit starting, as well as removing fasteners or bound bits, and 360° auxiliary handle with built-in quick release depth gauge.

I’ve researched hammer drills to use for the remodelling of a bathroom in my home. After some serious thought and a lot of comparison (to other hammer drills from other manufacturer’s) I settled on this Bosch hammer drill. As I intended, I used this drill to break up a tile floor which was done quickly and with little effort. After I had the tile up I was surprised to find that the tile was set in a light cement or mortar which was about 2 inches thick. I put this drill to work again and with a 1 1/2 inch chisel bit and I began to bust out the cement. Once again, the job was done quickly with little effort. I used this drill and that bit for a few other things, during my project, and it always worked out better than expected.

I have already recommended this drill to two friends who are tackling their own remodelling work and I recommend this particular drill to anybody who needs a hammer drill with good power. This is one of the best tools in my arsenal!
