Demo Hammer- Non-rotating chisel bit hammering.
Roto Hammer- Powerful hammer action with rotating drill; often has a switch to put in Demo-hammer mode
Hammer drill- light duty hammering drill action, basically meant for 1/4" holes (blues and screws or nail-drives); will also usually operate as a regular drill.

-Edit- removed the part where I was a dickhead

"VSR" represents "Variable Speed Reversing"
C-1 includes one battery.
C-2 is a kit which includes two batteries.

I am looking for recomendation for good drills for bolting granite. Specific model name/numbers would be helpful so I can try to find one for a good price.
