Review for DeWalt DCH253M2 18V XR Lithium-Ion SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Drill by G Potts Plumbing & Heating Ltd
3rd June 2020

Can’t fault this drill, light and comfortable to use, drills up to 24mm into masonry with ease, Also use it to drill 110mm core holes. Excellent for a lightweight battery drill.

Well built, powerful and compact. This is my go-to tool for chasing, drilling and coring. Great value for money and it hasn’t let me down.

Brilliant bit of kit. Well worth the money. This has been thrown around, soaked through, covered in dust and debris from chasing walls and still survives today with no issues apart from cosmetics.

Had this drill for years now and still as powerful as the day I bought it. Feels better to hold than the Makita equivalent. Anti vibration works great and the clutch kicks in at a reasonable torque.

By far the worse SDS we have purchased. We have four within our company and all have gone wrong, mostly used for drilling 5.5mm and 7mm holes. We have sent back two for repair that have lasted less then one week. We now use a more capable dewalt SDS drill.

I was quite sceptical about getting this after reading reviews online, I must say mine gets used a lot and I’ve had it for over a year now. Still works as new ( although not as clean). Hopefully will last a lot longer then other people have said.

Great multi use drill and can handle most tasks thrown at it. Chisel function is excellent for the softer building materials but for heavier work go bigger! The hammer drill can be a bit harsh so be careful as it does tend to smash through the last bit which isn’t good for face brick. Easy to swap bits out and switch modes. Good all rounder for the price.

Unfortunately for me this tool has let me down. Managed to drill x3 17mm holes in a wall and on the 3rd hole 1/4 way in, I got the dreaded 'smell'. it started to burn out. I stopped. Hopefully after a warranty repair/exchange it'll be great like the other Dewalt tools I have. If so, I'll be back to amend this review.

Very disappointed by this drill bought mainly for fixing into masonry so 6-8mm holes and within a month the trigger was faulty had it repaired and within another 3 months had it repaired again for the same issue. Can’t fault dewalt on their customer service and warranty repair but I feel this drill wasn’t built with the quality and robustness that dewalt normally provide in their power tools.

All my power tools are the dewalt range. I have the hammer drill and although it isn’t powerful enough to do lots of ongoing drilling such as drilling a hole for a fan it is perfect for drilling holes for fixings or one off holes. I regularly use it to drill 10mm holes through the wall to install tv aerial cables

Best cordless sds on the market. Would never buy any other make after owning this one. Light enough to use all day without your arms falling asleep. Low vibration, quiet compared to other models but tough enough to cope with most fixing applications, especially recommended for window and door installations

Had 2 of there's drills over the last couple off years. The 1 I have now I've had about 9 months it's just starting playing up and need to go on for repair. It works for a few small holes then gives up. Don't think there's are the best hammer drill on the market.

Best tool ive ever bought, probably used it every working day since i bought it. Compared to other manufacturers especially the "high end" ones its a bargain!

Great drill and very compact compared to my panasonic. Worked well when drilling 25mm hole about 700mm thick and workex prefect. Would definitely recommend this drill. Only issue i found was cost with them.

This drill is pretty good, as a sparky I'm using it mainly for fixing boxes and the occasional up to 20mm through masonry, it can struggle with the 20mm but always gets there in the end. A good drill but with some limits.

Great drill, got it as part of the kit screwfix we're doing, can't fault it. Manages 25mm with ease, one downside I did notice was the 2nd spin out handle works loose over time

This is probably the most useful tool I've bought for a few years. Since buying it, I don't think I've used my corded SDS. It's so useful and easy to use. Built really well and as it saves time, (Over using and corded sds) it's good value for money.

Great and powerful tool. Not too big either! Ever so happy with the perchace of my dewalt power tools and have never been let down by them. They can take a good beating and still perform like new. Especially the SDS. It's such a time saver! It's small yet packs a decent punch, making even the hardest wall like butter. Wouldn't know where I'd be without my SDS!

Good SDS drill for the size and seems to drill into the majority of materials with ease. It's good that it runs off standard dewalt batteries so you don't need to set up power cables etc.

Great drill and feels really powerful, I've been very happy with this and the ease of not plugging it into a wall makes the job get done easier and quicker!

I absolutely love mine, great for core drilling flue holes. Drills holes like a knife though butter and very lightweight. I'd say the only issue is the switch to turn the hammer action on and off, It's very stiff. Apart from that it's a great drill.

We've just upgraded to this after having the older model. Wish we had done it sooner. It's lightweight and easy to use which to love. Battery life on it is good as well.

I'd rate this higher but for a lightweight 18v hammer drill its just a bit heavier than a few of the other brands. Price is great though and its pretty durable. I've been using mine every day for 18 month and its still going strong.

I use mine every single day, it's been used on countless rewires chasing on chisel mode, it's been used a chuck a 1000mm long 25mm bit through hard brick and concrete. It just keeps on going and if it died tomorrow I'd replace it immediately. The only thing it didn't like was coring a 100mm hole for a fan, but that's no job for any cordless drill. I couldn't recommend it highly enough and every other tradesman I've seen with then have sung the drills praises
