Agree with most of the less than pleased reviews on the item. 4 inch core drill through brick, use once and discard as flutes twist and can prove difficult to remove from drill. (New Titan drill, accessories new, no excuses for it) Sadly, haven't found alternative item to buy from anywhere else, so keep having to use a new one each time! Adds to the cost of the job.

Did not last one morning of moderate use. Very soft steel used. SDS fitting jammed in the drill chuck and had to replace drill. Arbor bent quite easily becoming useless.

Bought this for use with my Titan SDS drill. After drilling one 50mm hole with my core drill I noticed that the shaft of the Arbor had twisted and the SDS flukes on the Arbor shaft were bent out of shape. This made it very difficult to remove the Arbor from my drill, which could have proved costly because the drill would have to have been written off too. Why don't the company who manufacture this Arbor use the same hard steel that they use to manufacture the drill bits. Buy with caution.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Masht Beware - choose carefully
the SDS fitting is quite soft metal. I used as recommended with a core drill having a clutch, and was drilling 152mm dia for a fan through brick / block wall.
It snatched and twisted the SDS grouve into a spiral, I had to use a vice and hammer to remove.
Screwfix replaced, Even without incident , the replacement is showing marks in the metal from the drill chuck.
Summary - may be OK for smaller cores, avoid if using larger diammeter, or tough material which may produce high torque.
