    I haven't used that particular model, but I have no complaints with the Bosch rotary hammer that I have.

    I have one just like that, we used it a few times, but not one of those got to have tools. We used it to chip off a small layer of cement that someone butchered a concrete stoop with. Works good though if thats what you want to know.

    I basically need this tool for light demo and stone drilling. Drilling holes in blue stone caps and concrete for electrical wiring. Bosch's tech sheet says that will drill a 4'' core hole. That would be nice for core cuts in pavers for pool ladder inserts.

    It's a very good drill for light duty drilling and chipping.

    We used a Bosch just like that from the rental place this winter to drill a 1 1/2" hole through a 3' thick concrete wall. It was an older model but the thing was a beast. It took the abuse a lot better than I did.

    I don't have the exact model, but mine is one of my favorite tools. I really don't think you would have any problems w/ the right cutter. Mine would almost take your arm off before you would be able to seize it. Almost every power tool I have is either Bosh or Porter Cable. If Bosh says it can do it, it probably can. If your not sure find a dealer or tool show and do a demo.

    Light demo and stone drilling you should be fine. We've used ours for similar tasks with no problems.
