The Craftsman Hammer Drill 315.10137 (2016) is a power tool for heavier projects. This specific power tool is used in heavy duty construction. This deals with heavy duty materials such as brick, cement, masonry, and any other high density material that cannot be easily drilled into by a standard power tool. This tool is important when needing to secure heavy duty structures or support. By pushing concussive blows (hammering motion) and a bit rotation, this tool is able to break through the heavy substances it is trying to insert a hole into. The overall goal of the Craftsman Hammer Drill is the same goal of a regular drill, to insert holes into a material; however, this drill has the purpose of dealing with heavy duty projects.
The Craftsman Hammer Drill can be both cordless or corded, but both are portable for home use. It is also used by professionals, at home projects, or DIY projects.
Some key features include:
- High performance motor produces 280 unit watts out of power and 25,500 BPM for faster drilling
- 1/2-In ratcheting chuck for easy bit changes and improved bit retention
- 2-Speed gearbox for speeds of 0-350 and 0-1500 RPM
- Includes (2) Craftsman V20, 2Ah batteries for ample runtime
- LED light for visibility in dark spaces
The Craftsman Hammer Drill is a 7.6 inch by 2.76 inch rotating power tool used for heavy duty drilling projects in materials like brick, cement, or other tough surfaces. It simultaneously uses a twist and striking motion to ensure that a hole will be placed without breaking the drill itself.
It is easily identified by its brand identity of the red and black color, the traditional drill gun body, and extended shank. Model and serial number can be found at the rear of the head of the hammer drill.
