Customer reviewsGreat quality
I was debating between this model and the RH328VC, I chose this model since it has 40 more impact energy important in a tool like this as well as more metal on the front casing compared to the RH328 the RH328 has plastic . I take care of my tools but definitely use them hard, so I needed a professional quality rotary hammer and not the China made consumer grade models sold at the major box stores. For anyone interested the hammer rotary drills at Home Depot Lowes do not compare to the higher end Bosch drills like this one, not even close. The box store rotary drills are made in China, this one is made in Germany. Also the shape of this drill is more versatile than the long style SDS drills sold at the box stores. I opted for an SDS Plus instead of an SDS Max since the Plus bits are much more readily available and not as expensive when compared to SDS Max bits. The Bosch SDS Plus bits sold at Lowes HD are made in Germany and great quality, the Bosch extreme SDS Plus bits are even better for a few bucks more since they have a solid carbide tip. I would put the higher end Bosch rotaries near the same level as the more expensive Hilti rotaries, both are made in Germany. Hilti offers a better warranty and replacement program, so professionals who use the tool daily may benefit from that aspect which might be worth the premium to them. I gave the tool 5 stars since it is built well and performs perfectly. It drills 5 8 holes in concrete like going through warm butter. This drill has drill only, hammer only, and hammer-drill modes, it also has a reverse switch. Keep in mind I don t believe that Bosch ever brought the interchangeable 3 jaw chuck to market here in the USA last I checked, one is sold on the European market if you do some Googling. But I would never use a standard 3 jaw chuck in this type of drill anyway for many reasons, that is what a 1 2 regular drill is for, due to the RPM speed and other factors it only makes sense to use the supplied SDS Plus chuck on this drill.
