With its compact size, powerful motor, and dust-collection system, the Hitachi DH28PD Rotary Hammer looks to be ideal for smaller jobs or service work. The tool accepts SDS-Plus bits and offers three modes of operation: drill, hammer, and hammer drill. With its 6.3-amp motor it can produce up to 4,000 impacts per minute. The body of the Hitachi is just over 12 inches long, not including the dust-collection system. A model without dust collection (DH28PC) is also available. Price: $480.
