    I'm a Licensed Journeyman Electrician with over 52 years in the trade . I specialize in Residential & Commercial Electrical Wiring and Maintenance. I own and use Dewalt 20V Max Lithium-Ion 1/2'' Hammer Drill, a Dewalt 20V Max Lithium-Ion 1/2'' Drill/Driver and a Dewalt 20V Max Lithium-Ion 1/2'' Impact Driver. I can drill 3/4'' holes in 2×4 Stud Framing all day long and only have to change the battery out once when using the 4-hour 20V battery. I always use the Hammer Drill when doing Electrical Rough-In wiring because if I should by chance hit a hard knot hole in the stud, the Hammer Drill goes through it like a hot knife through butter ! I also have a complete set of Masonary Bits of different lengths and sizes that I use with the Hammer Drill when drilling through Brick or concrete cinder blocks. I use the Impact Driver when mounting electrical boxes and panels in both wood constructed buildings and or steel purlins in Steel Framed Metal buildings . I have used all kinds of Power Tools, corded and cordless by several other manufacturers over the years and have found that Dewalt Power Tools are the BEST on the Market. I also own a Milwaukee 1/2'' Right-Angle corded Drill and a Milwaukee Sawzall and a 1/2'' Sears Craftsman 1/2'' Big Drill, corded. But I prefer and use the Dewalt Power Tools the most and Dewalt is the only brand that I buy now. Where is Your Dewalt 20V Lithium-Ion Hammer Drill when drilling into that concrete cinder block ?

    Need to mention that the hammer drill requires concrete bits to drill through concrete or stone.

    Ugh… way too simple and avoids the real issues. First off, most laborers like to use the impact driver because it takes less effort. OK, so what is the problem with that? Answer: We are building something (using fasteners) to get a quality structure, and this takes more knowledge than just slamming fasteners in with an impact driver. Take a situation where we want to fasten something like sistering a 2×10 to another 2×10 already framed in, and you want a tight fit with the materials pulled together by the fasteners. The impact driver won't draw in the materials properly if you just slam the fasteners in. You will get a much tighter fit, if you use the drill driver to go in with the screw, reverse the drill and pull out a bit when the materials separate, and then drive the screw home. This is especially true when you drive a fastener into older lumber that has dried out. In many cases, you need one drill gun to pilot drill the hole, and a second screw gun to drive the screw, and reversing, to get a tight fit. And often it helps to put some oil on the screw to get a tight strong joint.

    What happens when you get Joe "Just Use a Bigger Hammer" mindset using an impact driver? Either the bit breaks, the screw heats and snaps, or the material splits. Something is likely to give, when you hammer on it with the impact driver. Sometimes everything looks good on the surface, but if you take some screws out you find that they were either stripped or snapped, or the piece falls apart because the wood was split. Since we want a structure to stand up, and not fall down, snapped or heat damaged screws and broken structural lumber compromise the quality of the job. Have Joe Big Hammer follow up and infill fasten the pieces, but use the drill gun/screw gun to initially fasten materials that need a tight strong joint. It also helps to set the mentality, by getting your crew to initially drive the screw at the slower speed on the adjustable screw gun by lightly depressing the trigger instead of driving it in at full speed. Then after reversing, drive the screw home using a stronger trigger pull and getting a higher speed. Practice these techniques, and build much better structures.

    Once I found hammer drills I never touched my standard drills again.
    Then again even when I used drills I always had it on the highest clutch setting and let my finger dictate when to stop.
    If you need a clutch to not strip screws you ought not be building things.

    As and electrician, I like the hammer drill best for my tool belt carry. It can do everything well enough. While impacts can do certain tasks better, there are other tasks they can't do at all. The versatility makes it choice for me. The only time it feels like it falls behind is when driving long wood screws. Most the time I can manage without stripping them by dropping to a lower motor speed and applying pressure with short trigger presses. But if I have to drive a lot of long screws into wood, or if I have to drill into wood that may have nails or at a position that I can't stabilize the drill well, I'll run out to the van and grab my impact.

    95% of the time, I'm using my hammer drill.

    What I would need is an Impact Drill with a VARIABLE SPEED. 1 tool that could do ALL of those things except it's corded. I've used it many times and it didn't fail on me. One thing to note though is how to properly adjust the speed of your drill.
