Herein, what is the best drill bit for drilling concrete?

Drill bits that can drill through concrete are called masonry bits. They are also good for drilling through brick and stone. Drill bits with a tungsten carbide tip are the strongest; when it comes to solid concrete, the sharper the better. Masonry bits cut holes through concrete in two steps.

Similarly, can you drill concrete without hammer drill? Drilling into concrete without a hammer drill can be done, but it will not be an easy task. Ideally, to drill into concrete you would want to use a hammer drill, but unfortunately not all of us have access to those kinds of drills.

Accordingly, can you use a regular drill to drill into concrete?

You can drill holes in concrete with a regular drill. You will need a bit more patience and a wider array of drill bits when using a regular drill, but the procedure is the same for drilling in concrete regardless if you use a regular drill or a hammer drill.

Can you use a hammer drill as a regular drill?

A hammer drill can and usually should be used for drilling into a hard surface like brick or concrete, i.e., masonry. Some hammer drills do have a feature which allows the user to turn it back into a regular drill. The hammer drill is heavy and large, like a small jackhammer.
