Is Hammer Drill Renting Worth it?

When you carefully observe the above table, you can see the market price of the tool is less or equal to the 4 weeks renting fees. This is a demotivation for the renting. If you rent for 4 weeks, you can buy new tools by using that money. So it is not a good approach to renting per month.

Let’s think about a week and a day. It is a great opportunity. Renting per day is the best option for a tool. Some platforms offer a less than a week option. Those are very good for renting.

In briefly, one day option is the best option, and moving beyond that can be a reason to buy a new tool permanently. Sometimes if the tools are broken or damage you have to pay for that as well as you should pay for the cleaning also. So considering these facts renting a hammer drill is very good for 1 day or few days—more than that, it is not a good idea considering the price.

If you need to rent a regular drill, also do not rent both. You can do the same task by using a hammer drill. Hence use a hammer drill as a regular drill.

What Happened if a Hammer Drill Breaks Down While Using It?

Any damage such as theft, abuse, misuse, neglect, intentional acts and/or failure to follow the proper use and care instructions provided for the Equipment is covered by the damage protection in Home Depot. It is 15% of the rental price.

The customer should accept that. And also customer shall be responsible for all repair or replacement costs not covered by damage protection.

What Happened If Renting Time is Exceed?

When your project takes more than expected, you have to use the machines also. So you should plan the project well and rent out the related tool. If you rent out a hammer drill that exceeds the agreed time period, you must pay for the extra.

That is different from the shop and platform. When the time is exceeded, you have to pay for the extended hours. These rates are calculated according to the normal day hours. So better ask about it from your dealer.


Hammer drill renting is a good solution for the temporary projects, tool breakdowns, and any accidental happens. If it exceed more than two days, it is a wise decision to buy a brand new tool. Because renting is not a wise solution everytime.
