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

Cheaper than hiring

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.

Poorly manufactured-stopped working on fourth use

9 months 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

about 1 year 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.
