Hammer Drill Recommendations
I am looking at picking up a used hammer drill. Boss said he won't buy me one. It is mostly for 3/8 concrete anchors. I think a hilti te5 is what I want.
What do you guys use?

I use a bosh - slightly smaller and older than the above pic - works a treat - a bit lighter too. Important as you will be drilling over head putting anchors
your boss is a prick a total prick
a hammer drill is always a work tool and the company should be providing one particulary if they don't pay tool allowance after all its a specicalty tool just for construction/or installation.
is the jackass going to pay for the bits or do you have to buy the bits too?www.vetopropac.com - The best tool bags on the market - The offical tool bag of choice by techs everywhere

I have a cheap dewault (99 bucks at HD) for light stuff and the big hammer as in the post above for the heavy. Both do the job well.

If boss won't buy one then I won't use one unless I'm paid for speed(piece rate).Now that I said this.....
Yes the Bosch and others are bad-a$$, but I have a Dewalt hammerdrill off of Ebay that has kicked butt. Under $100 brand new...and there are better models now.If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

I have this one
works great and has quite an assortment of accessories available/don't buy a used power tool. This is only about $200 at HD and you may even find it for less elsewhere. ust checked their site, $199 free shipping.
