Rated 5 out of 5 Want to drill a brick?
I would have hired this tool. I would have driven the eight miles there and back, twice, paid a deposit, performed tricks to please the hirer...
a process which wouldn't have cost much less than the purchase of this amiable monster.
The first hole I drilled I hit concrete, and my monster treated it like its favorite cheese. The next was into engineering brick - and not modern stuff either! What can I say - you ask, it does it. Holes anywhere, chasing, chiseling... It is heavy, but that adds to its kudos, I think. If it broke down tomorrow I would have had my money's worth, but I don't think it will. With the extras supplied; the drill bits and chisels. I think I scooped a hundred and something pounds worth of drill for less than sixty quid.
I have only marked light on reliability etc., because I haven't had it for long! Otherwise, excellent!

Bought this on a friends recommendation. Used to drill 2 4 inch cores (safety clutch & you can turn the hammer off), a few holes in a mixture of materials (hammer drill) and chase some channels out (chisel - hammer no rotation). Cheaper than hiring and incredible value.

My old Black and Decker hammer wasn't making a dent in the concrete just to drill a few holes. Fancied an SDS but was worried about the price. Glad I picked this and got it at the lower price too. Made short work of the job putting up a dog pen. Don't bother renting just buy this-you can't go wrong and you get to keep it at the end of the job. Might struggle with its weight if doing any overhead work but worth the compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by spike1 Paid for itself in hours
I can't praise this tool enough. I had a small wall to demolish and I've never come across such hard mortar joints, after 2 hours and very little progress I decided I'd buy myself this drill I'd previously seen online but couldn't find a job to justify it. What a bargain, 2hrs after getting back job done ! I've since used it to drill 50mm holes through brickwork, like a hot knife though butter . I can't imagine a task this drill will not be up to. I've only given 3 stars for reliability as it hasn't stood the test of time yet, but I am confident it will .
