We liked this tool. It has one of the best bit changes. It's solidly built and had good ratings in all categories. Power was professional, balance was good, and vibration control in awkward positions was acceptable. The box was nice. You can't go wrong with this tool.

This is the best overall tool in the group with an excellent design. Its in-line body provided terrific balance and the perfect punch for the work we do. All the switches are in easy-to-access locations. It has a great box with adequate storage space.

We liked the flawless bit change and vibration-dampening cushioned grip. The power switch could be better placed. The tool feels a little heavy but seems like it will last on the jobsite almost indefinitely. Power was great. It has an adequate box, but the company should make it easier to tell which side is up.

|H60MRV||22 pounds||19 foot-pounds||930?1,840||SDS Max||12.5||22-3/4 inches|
This tool left something to be desired. Not enough power, poor balance, tough-to-use switches, and a difficult bit change made working with this tool more difficult than we would have liked.

This is a solid tool with good features and the best price in the group. Its design tolerances made it feel high quality even in the toughest work. Bit change and switches were typical.
