Difference Between a Cordless Drill and a Cordless Hammer Drill

Difference Between a Cordless Drill and a Cordless Hammer Drill

Christmas is the time that men love, especially if he is a tool lover. One of the most common gifts given during this time is drills. Now, there are a lot of choices available on the market today and finding the right one is very important.

You don't want to buy something that is a overkill do you. Well, today I want to touch on a common question. What is the difference between a cordless drill and a cordless hammer drill? This is a common question that is asked more often or not. Does it really make that much difference? The answer is yes.

Plain cordless drills are machines that rotate a bit in a circular motion as the user provides pressure towards or away from the object that is getting drilled. The bit has groves that latch on and pull through the material. Plain cordless drills are usually used for drilling into wood, vinyl, or softer materials.

On the other hand hammer drills are a much more violent tool. The drill still turns a special drill bit in a circular motion but it also does an extra function, it hummers down on the bit pushing it into the material.

These drills are normally used for drilling into concrete or steal material, material that a normal drill would not be able to drill through. It also requires a special drill bit that will not break with so much friction.

A hammer drill is not the perfect tool for someone who just does small jobs around the house. And if the recipient does not ask for this kind of drill I would not purchase it.

So, who makes the better drill between DeWalt and Milwaukee? If you want more bang for the buck then you need to choose DeWalt. DeWalt make a very superior drill that will last over the long haul. The price is also very reasonable.

Milwaukee does have a very comparable drill, but Milwaukee drills have a high premium for ownership. They cost a lot of money. And for the type of money spent you could get one or two more options with the Dewalt brand.
