Video Summary

  • How to identify an impact and rotary hammer drill
  • Differences between impact drill and rotary hammer drill
  • Going by the 70/30 ratio, if most of the work is drilling timber and metal with a bit of masonry but not much, us an impact drill.
  • If the opposite is true for you and you drill mostly masonry, and a bit of timber and metal, use a rotary hammer as this is faster with less effort.
  • Remember to use a quality drill bit and ensure you were safety glasses or goggles in any drill operation, plus any other Personal Protective Equiment (PPE) required
