Evolution Build SDS4-800 2.5kg SDS Plus Hammer Drill 230V
Feels like a toy
I bought this a good few months ago but never used it, so until 2 days ago it was still brand new in box. Picked it up as I havent felt like using the 5kg sds for a quick 2m long chase to an already cut brickwall. That is how long it lasted, about 10 minutes really, after that the hammer action was gone, which makes it totally useless now. On top of that, it was probably the weakest drill ive ever used, very weak impact on chiseling action, and the chuck does not fully lock when set to chiseling mode, therefore if you slightly twist the drill, the chuck will let go and rotate.
Ive used some cheap drills before, but this is honestly the worst of all.
For a cheap sds, go with Titan, they seem to be more reliable...

An okayish piece of kit, found it struggling after a few days work, so not really man enough for the medium to big jobs. Essentially the hammer mechanisim started to failed even though the job wasn't that demanding. Screwfix did replace without a quibble, although the replacement is now showing signs of the same failure. I would spend a bit more and get a better brand

Needed a light weight SDS to hack off plaster. Did a whole house with no quibles, good purchase very happy.

Good drill for the money
An excellent drill for the money. Supplied with 3 sds drills and a flat and pointed chisels. I have only used it so far for drilling brick and concrete but it seems to cope o.k. Comes supplied with a sturdy carry case to protect the drill. Excellent for the home d.i.y.er.
