Terratek 1500W SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill Review

Terratek 1500W SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill

When it comes to the versatility of a rotary hammer drill, it doesn’t get much better than the Terratek 1500W SDS Plus impact drill.

With three function modes, you can quickly transform the impact drill to fit a wide variety of needs. Use it as a rotary drill, switch to an impact drill with a rotary stop, or turn it into a regular hammer drill. The choice is yours.

The Terretek Plus impact drill also comes equipped with the latest vibration reduction technology to reduce vibration and discomfort in your hands during use. Anyone who has used a drill for an extended period knows the harsh vibrations can be a serious mood killer.

The drill sports an incredible 1500W hammer which is industry leading in terms of power and torque. If you’ve been waiting for a tool with a significant amount of power you certainly won’t be disappointed with the Terratek rotary hammer drill.

When used as a drill, the 5.5 Joules of impact helps you finish your drilling projects in a flash, and it is also quite powerful when used to chisel a wide variety of surfaces. Unlike some other power tools that jam easily when a high amount of power is used the integral clutch quickly reduces high torque to reduce jams so that you can continue your work without interruption. The drill can also be used in small and tight spaces due to its 360-degree side handle that easily conforms to whatever surface you’re working on.

While the drill has some incredible power, it’s not overbearing and can be adjusted quickly based on your needs. There aren’t many projects the Terratek won’t be able to get done.
