DeWalt DCH253N-XJ 3.1kg 18V Li-Ion XR Cordless SDS Plus Drill - Bare (2268G)

This DeWalt DCH253N-XJ cordless SDS Plus drill has excellent vibration control of 6.6m/s² and a cordless, soft-grip design that make it comfortable for long periods of use. The LED light enables you to use the tool in darker areas and tight corners, and the 18V Li-ion battery improves overall performance and maintenance, and maximises run time. The drill's rotation stop mode is suited for light chiselling in plaster, tiles and render and its impact stop mode is ideal for rotary only drilling into wood and metal. The multi-position side handle and lightweight design make it easy to handle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Worst cordless SDS ive had i have all Dewalt gear and this drill lets them all down. Started making bad noises after a month or 2 then after 6-8 moths started working on and off then packed in totally after around 14 months. I took it to the Dewalt factory in Durham and they said its common for these drills to pack in so wont be buying again.

Is this drill compatible with the flexvolt batteries?

Asked by: kevgaunty
The Flex Volt's two voltages between 18v and 54V do make it compatible with this tool

Is this a hammer drill or rotary hammer drill? Thanks

Asked by: AnttheGr8

Is this powerful enough to break concrete fenceposts?

I need to replace at least 15 concrete fenceposts. I'm looking for a way to save my back some agony. Would this drill rated at 2.1j have enough power to break up the posts and their footings or would I need something more powerful?
Asked by: Unfunny1
A 6kg breaker would be better suited for an extensive job like this

Adaptor chuck??

Does this bare unit come with adaptor chuck to take it from SDS to accept ordinary HSS and wood bits?
Asked by: Alonline
Hi There No this drill does not come with a standard chuck and adaptor. You would need to purchase this separately, Screwfix code 67460.

Does this drill come with a spare battery included ?

Asked by: LGJS
Hi There No this is a bare unit so it is just the SDS+ drill in a card box with no batteries or charger. The drill is compatible with all DEWALT 18V XR Li-Ion Slide Pack Batteries from 1.3Ah to 5.0Ah.
