difference between a hammer drill and other drills?
So I'm looking at Dewalt drills, Dewalt just because my dad has a dewalt and I love the thing compared to other drills ive used. So, Dewalt has a 18V Lithium Ion battery powered "Hammer Drill" and a 18V Lithium Ion battery powered "Drill / Driver"
What's the difference?
So is a hammer drill kind of like a drill / impact driver combo?

you need a hammer action when drilling in cement or else it wont drill well also you need a masonary bit

I would get a hammer drill, a hammer drill usually has a toggle switch that engages the hammer, which is really useful when drilling through harder objects such as cement. Then when your just drilling
through wood, or using screws, just simply flip the switch back to drill. Hope I Helped.Source(s): My Experience With Power Tools.

hammer drills have a switch to engage a hammering action that repeatedly bangs the drill bit into the work. used with hammer-drill rated masonry bits for drilling cement, stone etc.
