Rotary Hammer Run Down
Rotary hammers come into play on the worksite when a hammer drill is just not heavy duty enough to handle tougher type materials such as concrete and masonry, or perform the simple task of drilling a hole larger than 1/2 inch in size. The main reason for using a rotary hammer is the muscle they exhibit while being utilized. Employed for heavy duty job applications, rotary hammers come equipped with a true piston hammering action. Another plus, is the high output of power they produce, and the fact that rotary hammers do not cause the amount of physical fatigue from heavy vibration that a hammer drill can cause. That being said however, their is a catch with this tool, the sheer size and bulk of a rotary hammer is a turn off, especially for an all day project. Always large and awkward to handle, rotary hammers are not a sleek power tool. Another minus is the limitations of the tool, whereas you can only use a rotary hammer for drilling mason, or performing large chiseling type applications.
