Making the choice of a drill driver or hammer drill

Sometimes it can be hard to choose the right tool to meet your jobsite needs. Lots of different factors come into play and it can feel like a degree is needed to understand the differences in size and weight, power, torque or RPM, metal gearing or brushless motors, drilling or hammer drilling functions.

The best place to start is to consider the jobs you need to do and the materials you'll work with. Understand the application the tool will be used for can help to demystify the choices you need to make.

The Hilti advantage

The SF 2-A12 drill driver can be used with a broad range of materials and have a brushless motor, compact size and low weight which means they are balanced and easy to hold, suitable for working for long periods which helps to reduce operator fatigue.
