No, I do not recommend this product.

Purchased this for the shop about 2 months ago: CONS: 1. When first assembled it would not crank the bed up or down due to binding in the rack and pinion. Had to custom fab a special shaped washer to correct, poor engineering. 2. The rack doesn't have enough teeth on it to allow the bed to be raised up to a useable height. You will have to place a stack of boards under the work piece if using a small (short) drill bit, and thats WITH work clamped in a machine vise which raises work piece 3 inches. Poor engineering.
3. laser alignment is course, not calibrated fine enough for working metal. It would be OK for drilling a hole in a board. It's a bell and whistle to distract you from the poor engineering. 4. Knobs on the 3 spindle levers come apart in your hand and get you sticky with some kind of glue that never has set up. Cheap parts. PROS: The cord is long enough.
Product Featuresvery poorly engineered., uses very cheap chineese parts

I have only received this motor, not yet ran it. The initial quality appears good, meets all specs as written. This is actually a 3 speed motor though it doesn't mention that in the write up, thus the 3 different amp ratings.
Product FeaturesGreat value for money

This motor purchase was to replace the identical motor purchased from Grainger 9 months prior. Not a good lifespan so far. Much too expensive to be replacing in less than a year.
Product Featuresit's a dayton known for low quality.

What are the uses of a Hammer drill ?

Almost always, a hammer drill is used for boring a hole in concrete. This is accomlished in conjunction with a carbide- tipped drilll bit. Carbide being VERY hard,will pulverize the cement and rock in the concrete when the Hammer stroke of the drill drives the bit against it. The rotating of the bit is used to draw the fragmented concrete out of the hole. SOME hammer drills can turn off the rotating of the drill bit, at which time you could place a chisel bit in the drill and have a power chisel. Most hammer drills can be set to: 1. rotate only,. 2. rotate and hammer at the same time. 3. Rarely, a hammer drill will have a hammer only setting.
