  • High powered motor delivers 424 in-lbs of torque, dominating the toughest hammer drilling jobs
  • 2 speed gearbox is great for high torque (0-350RPM) or high speed (0-1,500 RPM)
  • Eliminate overdriven and stripped fasteners when you use the 22 position clutch
  • Bludgeon brick, block, and concrete into submission with the merciless 0-25,500 BPM Hammer Setting
  • Compact design allows for work in tight places that larger hammer drills can't fit
  • Weighs just 4.1 lbs with battery attached, making it easy to use for extended periods of time
  • All metal 1/2" keyless chuck is durable and keeps your bits in line so they don't fall out or wobble
  • Contoured handle with over mold fits perfectly in your hand and reduces vibration

With power tools, a power tool needs to be pretty big to be powerful. Fortunately, Porter Cable offers an extremely lightweight hammer drill that can punch its way through very tough applications. The PC18CHD only weighs 4.1 lbs (with a battery attached) despite being equipped with a high output (424 in-lbs of torque) motor. The two speed gearbox allows you to choose between high torque (0-350RPM) or high speed (0-1,500 RPM) to fit your current needs. Bashing brick, block, and concrete will seem almost effortless when you turn on the menacing 0-25,500 BPM Hammer Setting. The 22 position clutch allows for micro adjustments for the right amount of torque. Not only is it lightweight, but the PC18CHD is also compact (just 9" in length) so it can fit where larger tools cannot. When your bit falls out in the middle of a tough job, endless frustration ensues. This hammer drill features an all metal 1/2" keyless chuck that holds your bit tightly and firmly. This is the bare tool, the battery and charger are sold separately. You'll notice the Porter Cable difference immediately and you'll never look back.

The PC18CHD includes:

  • One (1) Porter-Cable 18 Volt Drill/Driver
  • One (1) Double Ended Bit Tip
  • (Batteries and Charger Sold Separately)

Overall Rating for Porter-Cable PC18CHD Tradesman 1/2'' Hammer Drill
(based on 1 review)
By Ingo from El Paso on April 30, 2012
Excellent product, two speed, hammer, powerful, exchangeable battery, easy mounting without 'grinding your hands', surprised to find an 'LED headlight'. High quality for the price.
headlight, best bit-mounting so far I found in any drill.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
