Prior to this purchase I was hammering with a lump hammer and bolster chisel, barely scratching the brick. This thing rips through it. 8 back boxes in and it's looking a bit dusty, but still going strong.
The accessories supplied are enough for back box chiselling and fitting a rawl plug. It would be nice to have an 80mm chisel included, but at this price I'm happy.
The cable is thick but flexible and a good length.
The weight gives the right balance of power and muscle workout. 2-3 hours of on/off use and your back is feeling it - I dread to think what the 5KG ones would be like!
There was a cheaper model when I was originally looking, but I was advised by a friend to note the Joule (J) rating compared to the weight of the drill. This is 3.5J at 3.5KG, Energer was 2.8J at 4.8KG - less punch and heavier!
Unsure on reliability - the gearbox gets pretty hot (too hot for an accidental touch with the back of your hand). There has been a fair amount of very black grease come out of the chuck end... Related?
I assume I'll need to add some back in before long!

Had this drill for just over a few weeks now brought it for the chisel, to chip off old render on a house and it flys through the render with no problem at all.
Also it isnt too heavy so can easilly use all day long, would highly recommend if looking for a new sds drill especially if its for the chisel function.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jatet Good drill at a bargain price.
This drill has replaced the same model which I have had for 23 months, it started to drill wonky holes
It is more than capable of handling any job you throw at it from drilling to chiselling
lifting porcelain floor tiles was a breeze.
I had read a couple of reviews before I bought my first drill it did not put me off, I think I was just unlucky on this occasion.
A big thank you to Screwfix customer services for the way they handled my problem, service is second to none.
