The Bosch Bulldog rotary hammer drill, is mainly a Rotary Hammer drill that also has acts as a chipping hammer. For an Electric Jack Hammer, it is very small and lightweight. It can handle things like lifting tiles and even some very light concrete work, but as I said it is more designed to be used as a Chipping Hammer or a Hammer Drill as opposed to an all out Electric Jack Hammer. Having said that I have found that the option to use it as a chipping hammer is a huge bonus with these types of drills. You pay maybe an extra $30 to get that Chipping Hammer option with the tool, but it is more than worth it. It is surprising how often you will use it to chip away a bit of concrete once you have it.
The Bosch Bulldog comes with a D shaped handle, which I makes it very comfortable to use with good control. It can also be quite handy if you find yourself having so shove your hand and arm into a hole and use the tool with one hand. This tool comes with enough power that it will eat the holes required for things like tapcons, and even larger half inch holes are no problem either into brick or concrete. I have spent a good 5 minutes pushing and straining like an idiot, trying to drill a single half inch hole into hardened brick and concrete with a regular hammer drill; and then used this tool and it is a breeze- the Bosch Bulldog literally does the work for you.
The Bosch Bulldog comes in two models. The Regular Bosch Bulldog 11224VSR and the Bosch Bulldog Xtreme 11255VSR . The main difference being that the Xtreme model is a 1″ device making it a little more heavy duty.
