Drilling into concrete is one of the toughest tasks in construction – and when you encounter steel rebar, things get complicated quickly. Although a hammer drill is excellent for powering through tough concrete, it can come to a screeching halt if you don’t have the right type of concrete drill bit to go with it.
To drill through rebar effectively, you need two things: a hammer drill and a carbide-tipped drill bit. Drilling into rebar requires a drill bit that can resist wear and heat while maintaining speed. The best hammer drill bit for concrete is full carbide; it can keep up with the most powerful hammer drills and outperforms standard embedded carbide heads.
