comment Is this rotary hammer capable of driving a ground rod into hard soil?
I've broken 4+ sledge hammers driving ground rods and also one of those manual drivers with handles on the side, which, despite being made from 1/4" steel, can only take so many whacks from a sledge. (Not to mention the resulting mushroomed top that has to be cut and ground smooth.) The amount of force required to drive a ground rod in hard soil is truly maddening. It will be nice to not have to deal with that crap again.

Reading more carefully: "Then I put my 8' step ladder next to the ground rod and inserted the former chisel's shank into the 3" of rubber hose sticking out above the top of the ground rod, and pulled the trigger. Within a couple of minutes the ground rod was 7.5 feet into the ground." He is claiming that it drove the ground rod in 3 minutes. Very impressive for an SDS-Plus rotary hammer. I had my doubts, but I guess it can get the job done if he is to be believed.
