There’s also some muscle to back it up—650 in-lbs worth. When you need to drill concrete, brick, or other masonry, you can make quick work of it with 31,000 BPM in hammer drill mode.

There’s a gentle side to the brushless motor’s performance as well. When you need more control over fastening depth, 24 clutch positions give you control when precision matters.

Putting all of that together, you get Hart’s most capable drill to date. Using it around the shop and putting it through a few tests, it does have the chops to handle the same tasks we use our professional-grade tools for.

Hart Brushless Hammer Drill Design Notes

Size and Weight

A quick glance at this drill and you might think it’s too compact for the performance stats it’s posting. It’s 7.5 inches from tip to tail and noticeably shorter than some of Hart’s early offerings.

As for the weight, it’s 3.38 pounds bare and a 2.0Ah battery brings it up to 4.19 pounds.

Auxilliary Handle

If this is your first big drill upgrade, you might not be used to having a side handle. It’s incredibly important, though. With the amount of torque this hammer drill produces and the accessories it’s capable of drilling with, there’s a greater chance you can bind a bit and get a wrist or elbow injury if the drill turns on you.

Anytime you’re working in low gear (which has the highest torque), screw the side handle into the side that’s most comfortable for you. It gives you a stable position to control the drill under heavier loads.

All-Metal Chuck

Hart turns to a 1/2-inch metal chuck that’s significant for a couple of reasons. First, a metal chuck is more durable than the plastic ones we see on entry-level drills. The 1/2-inch capacity is noteworthy because you’re able to use a broader range of bits, including self-feed bits that don’t fit in a 3/8-inch chuck.

Additional Features

  • Reversible belt hook
  • LED light
