Looking to buy Hammer Drills?

If you need to punch holes in tough materials, there's one kind of electric drill that should attract your attention: the hammer drill. Hammer drills are like normal drills but they have a special added mode that lets them drill through some of the toughest construction materials around. Browse one of the best online selections today!

Hammer drills: hammering it out

These machines have more powerful motors than the ones you would typically find in an electric drill. This gives them improved torque, which allows the drill bit to twist its way through denser material. But that's not all. When you switch to the drill's hammer mode (usually selected through a toggle switch on the side of the drill's body) a gear driven cam starts up, moving the drill bit back and forth along the horizontal axis. This reciprocal motion adds extra force to your drill, not unlike a chisel. With this mode active you can drill holes through thick, tough materials.

Hammer drills are best for professionals who are in construction and are likely to need to put holes in such hard materials, when making changes to a building's structural walls, for instance. However, that doesn't mean amateur DIY fanatics can't also benefit from this type of power tool.

Hammer drill brands and alternatives

Since hammer drills are a must buy for so many professionals. Power tool brands are falling over themselves to offer you their version. This is great news if you're already bought into one power tool brand's ecosystem, as you'll be able to use their existing batteries to power your new hammer drill (if you've chosen a cordless model, most brands offer corded ones too). Our seller's selection for sale includes an amazing selection from brands from across the world, including Bosch, Einhell, Makita and DeWalt.

If you'll be working with really tough materials, like solid brick, for long periods, you might want to invest in an SDS drill instead. They are incredibly similar to hammer drills - they both piston back and forth at an extremely fast rate to hammer their way through tough materials. But the SDS system uses a special carbide tipped drill bit that requires a different collar. They're tougher and more powerful than hammer drills, but they are also more expensive and they can't effectively multi-task the way that hammer drills can.

Speaking of multi-tasking, although you can drive screws with a hammer drill, they aren't always the right tool for the job - particularly if the material you're driving into is soft or the screws you're using are somewhat fragile. If you'd like a drill that still has a milder hammering action but that's better at driving screws and making holes in softer materials, explore our range of combi drills.
