Great for the price

Good tool, case is flimsy and supplied bits aren’t great but the actual drill is good. I bought a Kango bit for a chimney demolition and it worked fine. Tried the supplied chisel and got stuck in chuck, pulled free with a bit of force and went back to Kango bit.

I was impressed with initial use. Plenty of power and drills through hard concrete with ease where my old hammer drill has struggled. Build looks solid enough, but time will tell how durable some of the plastics are. Handy that it comes with drill and chisel bits. Can be difficult to remove chisel bit from drill after extended heavy use. I will be certain to keep well greased (grease is included). Overall, a good performer for the price and I hope it will last well.

1.Chuck will not release chisel and is very difficult to release drill bits. At this moment I am stuck with the drill and the chisel bit as a single unit.

Purchased this Rotary Hammer Drill for the hammer action to remove bathroom floor and wall tiles cemented to concrete, the hammer drill took them off with ease. Well made product and unbelievable what you get for the price.

This started off great, but after a few weeks and maybe 3 uses the handle has broken and so has the dust cover. Shame as the motor is good.

Excellent Drill. Very durable & robust. Used Chisel & Hammer functions for long periods of time & has not missed a beat. Yes, supplied Drill bits not the best quality & can mushroom. Important to keep stems well lubed with greased.

We were very impressed with this drill. The only reason we gave it 4* was it did not come with the tool to determine depth and we went right through the concrete. Using tape around the drill did not help us. It handled the drilling with ease.

Fantastic tool for the price

All the hammer drill you'll ever need for DIY. This thing is big & heavy, but it drills into concrete like butter. The included bits aren't fantastic quality - the end of the chisel mushroomed in the chuck and was difficult to remove. The drill itself is great, and even comes with an exploded parts diagram.

What a great tool! Did exactly what I needed it to do and more! Was looking to buy an expensive USA cordless tool (coincidentally the same colour?) but the Flash is at such a great price I couldn't resist! The tool is powerful and rugged and having 3 modes means you can chip and break concrete away no problem as well as drill through concrete.Great value for money thoroughly recommend this tool.

At first, I was hunting for a second hand bargain and searched fb and trademe for the most popular drills at a reasonable price. However, some of the tools came without all the parts, i.e. batt, charger etc..and I didn't want to be bothered buying bits and pieces from here and there to ensure I had a workable tool. I was also frustrated sometimes when the item got sold before I even had a chance to put an offer in. Time was of the essence, so I wanted to make a sure bet and found a brand new Hammer Rotary Drill and went straight to the Trade Tested place and picked one up. I got home and used it straight away and was so surprised at how amazing this tool worked. I really recommend this to anyone and by the way, I received great Customer Service.

We needed a low cost option to drill some holes in our factory floor to mount some Bollards. Did the job well and better than anticipated. The Blow molded carry case isn't good however the selection of Drill Bits and hammer fittings that came with it presented pretty good value for money

Great tool. Have used it a few times now and has been awesome and pricing is great!! Only down fall is the case is not the best and clips dont work well but doesnt bother me as I store in steel tool case anyways. Would reccomend.

Tim West Coast

Cheaper than hiring

about 1 year ago


I needed to drill a few holes to install a handrail for some steps and my standard hammer drill just wasn't up to it. So I checked out a local hire place and thought ouch and then decided to check online and found this product on TradeTested for cheaper than hiring. So I thought worth a risk. Couldn't be more pleased. Arrived promptly, with a few of the standard sized bits you will need included. Plugged it in and it was like a knife through butter. Perfect for my home handyman requirements. Can't comment on long term or heavy use but for someone like me it will most likely last forever doing the odd job from year to year. Very happy with the purchase.

Have purchased two of these drills. pretty good for the price. first one the handle striped then the variable speed switch packed up with in a couple of uses. second one was squeaking straight out of the box but regreased and no issues.

Does what it's supposed to and does it very well. It is bigger and heavier than you might expect giving an air of industrial quality to a semi-domestic product. Carry case has flimsy clasps but does the job OK.

Mic Auckland

Poorly manufactured-stopped working on fourth use

about 1 year ago


I bought this to install concrete anchors for a fence (8 bolts). I used it again where it drilled 20 holes for concrete anchors. Third project was for attaching a wall with about 30 anchors. On my fourth project recently it went for three anchors and then just stopped working. Sadly it is now 2 months out of warranty. Not too flash. :(

What a BEAST

over 2 years ago


After breaking my last combo hammer/normal drill, I bought one of these when I had a couple of holes to drill into concrete. It was much larger than I thought but seemed well built. It only takes special drills that quick change, fortunately it came with some, one the size I needed for the job. I will need to buy some more sizes because none of my old drill bits can be used with this drill. It made the job simple! Way better than my old one. This drill would be PERFECT for drilling into concrete floors as its weight would help. I was drilling horizontally, but it was easy and comfortable to control and cut the holes quickly without effort. This is a powerful beast!

Very good rotary hammer

I was impressed with the ruggedness of this tool. It's the real deal. It wasn't worth buying a 2nd hand tool at the price. It took up the laundry tiles and the vinyl they had been laid on top of very quickly indeed.

So much more than a DIY tool.

Easy to use. The chuck to change the bit is easy to operate. it light enough for my wife to hold yet powerful enough to nibble away a bank. I can't believe the value for money on this deal......the selection of bits that comes with it makes this a plug n Play tool.
