Part 1 of 2. We TEST and EXAMINE the top brushless 18V Hammer Drills from Makita, Milwaukee, Dewalt, Metabo, and the brushed Bosch. Find the full review here: http://oztooltalk.com/hammer_drill_comparison/

This is our second go at the video, having stuffed up with the Metabo clutch on the first attempt. Model numbers are:
Makita DHP481 / XHP07
Milwaukee M18 CPD / 2604
Bosch GSB 18VE-2Li
Metabo SB 18 LTX BL
Our suite of testing includes runtime, large diameter switchblade and auger drilling, coach screws, bugels, steel and masonry. We also look into runtime, comfort and build quality.
We believe this is the most comprehensive and fair comparison ever done to date. However we do not assume everyone will agree with us on every point, so please let us know your thoughts!
Don’t forget to check out Part 2 – http://youtu.be/JmkswUppjwY to see our scoring and final conclusion. Someone is going to win this test, we pull no punches!
