DeWalt DC212KA reviews

Power and versatility
This compact SDS Drill offers great power with a lightweight compact body. The 18v power pack gives you enough power to use on most jobs. I went with the 18v over the 24v because i was concerned that the 24v would be too bulky and or heavy to use one handed or leaning to a hard to reach space. Coupled with a rapid 15min charger, you will never run out or power.
Nice tool!
I bought this item because I have almost every Dewalt 18 volt tool there is. This completed the 18 volt system. I used it just the other day and it
worked like a champ. If you are drilling several holes, I would recommend the Bosch extreme corded hammerdrill.

All in all, the tool is a bit pricy but what isn't now days.

Great hammerdrill, good power for its size
This product works great, much better than a different company's 18 volt rotary hammer, although it lacks a chipping or hammer only function. However to be fair SDS+ isn't meant for heavy chipping applications, if you need to do alot of chipping get a spline drive or SDS MAX, they work so much faster. I cannot accurately say exactly how many holes I get per charge because I drill various hole sizes (3/16"-3/4"). Sometimes I will use thin-walled core bits, but for the large sizes I usually bring out the corded hammerdrill, this one will drill the hole but it is hard on it. overall a great drill.
'No Brainer...."
I have been using a corded sds hammer drill for a number of years and have grown tired of lugging an extension cord around jobsites. When I'm working from a 12-foot ladder the extension cord adds significant weight to the drill. Sure; a corded drill hits harder and drills slightly faster, but the disadvantages, at least in my opinion, outweigh the advantages, thus making a battery hammer-drill a viable choice. And in my case the 18 volt model was the logical choice ... I already use a DeWalt 18-volt drill/driver and have plenty of batteries (as well as a 15-minute charger). I can charge five batteries in the evening, carry them with me to work and not have to worry about running out of power all day long. I seldom drill anything larger than 1/4", so I get a lot of holes out of a single charged battery. This is one of the lightest sds battery drills available, too.

If you are lucky enough to do all your drilling in a single location, or if you anticipate doing a lot of chipping or drilling large holes, then go for a corded drill: you'll be glad you did. If your job requires you to move around a lot and/or climb ladders, you will soon appreciate this drill.
