Looks very similar to screwfix Titan which is a cracking drill.
Cant go wrong for under 40 quid.

"...suitable for light repairs..." What? This thing is a monster!

Great price though.

Looks like a good price for a powerful SDS drill.
I bought a Challenge 900W from Argos in a sale 4-5 years ago for a mid £30's price because I could not get through the hard concrete where I live, that beast sailed through it and even though the neighbours borrowed it more than once it still does the same job.

Good price for a masonary and `breaker` type drill. Single slow speed only so rather slow when drilling wood for instance using twist type drills. Variable speed would have been nice. SDS with no conventional chuck so you will need to get special SDS bits which generally are more expensive than ordinary twist drills.
Not really suitable for general household use, I don`t think.

A normal household wall, consisting of bricks or blocks or both, yes.
Provided the drill was long enough of course.
It would struggle with real concrete (such as found in concrete lintels etc, but anything would)

My titan had no problem with real concrete.

This looks interesting. I will be needing something like that to get some holes into an old brick house. And do some tough concrete drilling.

However, this particular unit seems a bit odd – it weights only 5KG and claims 8J power and 1500 wattage. Almost all other tools are at least 7KG for this kind of power output.
Which means this one is either entirely plastic inside or nowhere near the claimed output. In either case it could be bad, especially if the stated clutch is a plastic one.

Does include 5 bits though - which is more than my £45 one from B&Q did! I think by the time you get to this sort of heavy duty kit a conventional chuck is getting a bit redundant. Buying something like this just to drill holes in wood, brick ,etc. is definitely overkill.

I just think the description `suitable for light repairs` is deceptive. If you get this drill, you will need another for general repairs within the house. Also it`s very heavy and relatively unwieldy for general use.

anyone who is hesitating on getting this please tell me why

because I'm thinking of getting this for my old hard concrete wall (to drill to put tv on the wall and etc)

Walls are not usually made of concrete, they are made of about an inch of plaster then either breeze blocks or bricks. Alternatively, they are made of plasterboard, then a small cavity, then breeze blocks or bricks. Plasterboard or plaster is too soft to hold a tv.
So in the first case, you need to drill into the breeze block or brick. Then you put a rawlplug into the hole and screw into that.
In the second case, you can use a special fitting to suspend a relatively light tv from the plasterboard, or there are other ways of doing it.
But in either case, if you have a variable speed drill with a hammer action, then you don`t need this drill just to mount one tv. You just need a drill bit of a suitable size

PS. Check there are no water pipes or electrical wiring running up the wall!.
