Many appliances do not come with a power cord. This leaves the option to the consumer to either hard wire to a terminal box, or purchase and install a power cord. You can purchase a three-prong power cord from any major hardware store. Power tool replacement cords work best, because they handle current well and have thick insulation to prevent chaffing. A good 15 to 20 amp cord is recommended. Whether you hard wire, or add a power cord that you can simply plug in, the wires as terminated as follows (U.S. Standard):

GREEN - Ground - terminate to ground lug

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I check a cord on my Bosch rotary hammar drill

You didn't mention if you're not getting power or if the cord has cracks or breaks.
You could take the case off the rotary hammer drill and inspect to see if you have a loose or broken wire. Cords are the easiest to replace. you can even make your own, so if you want a longer cord like a 25ft with a twist lock. Just make sure you get the correct cable SOOW or SJOW cord and a twist lock plug. You don't need a twist lock but it's great to have on a job site, so you don't get unplugged.
