Impact drills and electric hammers are tools used to make holes in walls during finishing. Some people don't know difference between two, so let's take a look here.
The impact drill is mainly based on rotation and impact, while electric hammer is mainly based on rotation and impact. The impact drill is easy to use, but when using it, it is not easy to understand direction of impact drill, and it is prone to operation errors, resulting in a large hole; In addition, drill is not sharp, so that hole is not opened neatly, burrs or cracks appear, advantages of electric hammer: high performance, large hole, large drilling depth, disadvantage is strong vibration, which has a certain degree of damage to surrounding structures.
Due to their different characteristics, their action objects are also different. Impact drills are mainly suitable for drilling holes in wood, metal, ceramics and plastics, as well as concrete floors, walls, bricks and stones, but effect is not perfect.
For drilling in hard concrete, stone and wall tiles, an electric hammer is more suitable. In addition, there are multifunctional electric hammers that can be used in place of conventional electric drills and electric picks if placed in appropriate position and equipped with appropriate drill bits. Functional electric hammers will be more expensive.
For ordinary families, buying an impact drill is more suitable, if you are not a professional worker, then you do not need to buy an electric hammer.
