Advanced vibration control and three modes of operation help you power through the toughest jobs. View larger.
Superb power-to-weight ratio offers ideal handling and control. View larger.
The rotary hammer provides vibration control without compromising performance. It reduces vibrations via a two-step process, originating from the impact mechanism and progressing to the handle, which features rubber dampening elements on the top and bottom.
Excellent Power-to-Weight Ratio with Variable Speed Trigger
Powered by an 8-amp motor, the hammer weighs 7.7 pounds and provides 2.6 ft./lbs. of impact energy, making it the one of the best rotary hammers in its class.
For better control and accurate bit starting, the rotary hammer boasts a variable speed three-finger trigger (0-4,000 bpm; 0-900 rpm).
Three Modes of Operation for Versatile Use
The rotary hammer offers three modes of operation. Use the multifunction selector to choose rotary hammer, hammer only, or rotation only mode. An integral clutch helps minimize torque reaction, and a 360-degree auxiliary handle further enhances project flexibility.
The Bosch 1-1/8-Inch Rotary Hammer is backed by a manufacturer's one-year limited warranty.

I got tired of abusing my big mixing drills, and my wrists like that, so I got this Bosch SDS. I got it factory reconditioned from CPO. I could not tell it had been used other than the box was open. It drilled the same hole my spade drill took 10 minutes to do in 15 seconds.
I've run this drill for hours doing nothing but 1/2" rebar holes and it doesn't get hot, just keeps going. No problems yet after a few buildings.
SDS stands for slotted drive system. It uses a special kind of drill bit. Normal bits will not work without an adapter which I cover in the next paragraph. Basically you click a bit on, and the chuck locks it in place. Then only the bit is impacted in the chuck, instead of the entire chuck being impacted. Or to put it another way, only the bit moves while the chuck stays in place. This makes it a more efficient transmission of power, which is why SDS drills are all more powerful than traditional hammer-drills. Traditional hammer-drill chucks have more weight they need to move up and down.
The drill has three settings. Drill only. Impact only. And drill and impact, like all SDS drills. And like all SDS drills the handle has vibration absorption.Read more ›
The anti-vibration is great and easy on your hands. The case is ample sized for bit storage. I also picked up a Bosch SDS-to-adjustable-chuck adapter so I can use the drill only function for large holes in wood my cordless drill is not up for.
If you're considering this drill versus a Hilti (like I was), save $200 and get the Bosch. It's made in Germany and has one year less of warranty compared to the Hilti (no biggie, all tools break and you get them repaired).
Still using this hammer for my work tasks. It shows that the tool has been worked. The rubber impact cushion on the tip of the SDS chuck has cracked and needs replacing. I've done 3-4 tile floor demo jobs with the hammer in chip mode, so this is probably the reason for the crack. Using a Bosch tile scraper bit, I pry up with the hammer.
I've done window, door, and sliding glass door installations. Chipped stucco and concrete. Drilled out 3/4" holes for epoxied 5/8" dai. anchor bolts in concrete tie beams and through wood plates with a long auger bit. I like the size of this drill because it fits into smaller spaces (between floor joists or wall studs) during framing applications and also is easier to install smaller windows with it (think 24" x 24" fixed glass windows or smaller). I use the depth rod quite often.
The hard case has held up. I've got it jammed full of bits etc. The cord doesn't kink up and folds away well each time. The drill itself shows signs of wear on the body from being dropped and dragged. None of this effects it's performance. This tool is definitely professional grade.
An additional note: Bosch will not sell these components individually any longer. They are only able to be purchased in an assembly. They don't even provide a part number on the Bosch schematic for the tool.
This is a major step back for a company I had a great deal of respect for engineering and quality-wise. If you want an excellent hammer drill I suggest finding a Bosch 11239VS and not the RH238VC.
First off, their is no comparison between the Bosch and the Makita. I used it to drill a bunch of 5/8 inch holes and it drilled through concrete like butter. The Side grip is very easy to adjust and the depth guide works great. Oh the Makita, you had to tightened the handle as tight as possible to hold the guide, and still it would slide up when drilling.
This drill has an SDS-Plus chuck. I don't think it mentioned that in the description. Overall I'm very happy with this, and highly recommend it.
