A hammer drill is a powerful tool that can be used for drilling into concrete, masonry and stone. Hammer drills are able to do this because they have a gearbox that allows them to spin at very high speeds. This spinning action helps the bit go through solid materials with ease.
The amount of torque produced by a hammer drill varies from model to model, but most of them will produce between 2,000 and 5,000 pounds per square inch (PSI). The higher the PSI rating, the more torque you’ll get from your hammer drill.
There are two types of hammer drills: corded and cordless. Corded models are typically more powerful than cordless ones because they use an electric motor instead of batteries for power. Cordless models use battery packs that last anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the battery pack and how much drilling you need done before recharging it again.
