Having had this hammer drill prior to getting cordless version I was so very pleased with its capabilities and pleased to say I would highly recommend to anyone. The SDS chuck is great, depth stop, additional handle and plus carry case are of great quality so a good addition.

Each engineer has one and swears by it. Amazing bit of kit and not had an issue with any of them in years. Comes with a great carry case and a set of common SDS bits.

Had one of these for years now, very good value for money, powerful as a breaker as well as a drill, even use this drill with a 100mm diamond core but in it as well, which is a bit extreme but it copes well. For what they cost they are a very capable drill.

Great bit of kit however my only negative comment I can give is that the push button on the side of the handle to keep the drill running without having to hold the trigger pops out on its own too easily which can mean constant stop starting when using it in hammer action to remove render etc.

Great value for money, I’ve had my current one for five years with no problems and the one before that is a longer I’m always using it so it’s got a hard life and never skips complete.

A tough drill that I’ve had years and is still going strong, the hammer option is very good considering the size of it, I do abuse it and also use it for core drilling really testing it’s limits and it’s not struggled yet,

I have been using this for core drilling and it has the power to do the job. Little bit too expensive for a plug in but I find the build quality makes up For it.

This Drill is the daddy for your everyday 240v jobs it dose anything from drilling to chasing walls as the saying goes this on takes a hammering and keeps on going. Had 2 of these so far and have no complaints the grip is expecially handy and can be moved to a position to suit the job and the cable is a at a good length for those out of the way jobs.

Got the 110. Gets hammered all the time, lots of chasing, days on end drilling peg holes etc. Been going for a few years hasn't even needed brushes yet. Can't ask for more for near enough 100 quid...

Got this on offer from screwfix to see how out did on core drilling. Have a bigger drill but it's heavy as anything. This is loads lighter and still dies a great job. Sometimes feels like the clutch is a bit light but better than the alternative. Manages everything i throw at it. I have the cordless for less heavy work but out of curiosity i tried a 40mm core with that and it managed

Question:

Great value for money, I’ve had my current one for 5 years with no problems and the one before that for even longer I’m always using it so it’s got a hard life and never skips a beat.

Asked on 28th July 2018 by JSM Plumbing and Heating services

Answer:

Same here, I loved this drill more than my wife, until the apprentice decided to use it to core a flue hole. it literally was flaming hot. Time to buy a new drill.
