Are these any better than pound shop items ?
Is this a price reduction ?
More information would help those of us not familiar with lidl products.

Hi carefreeblue
bought a set a few years ago
and they are good
weigh a ton
and drill through most walls very well
buy them
and do that bank job
saves working fior a living !!

Used to work for Lidl and did their shopfitting. We used these straight off the floor to do the work and they are OK, for the price they are great. We even managed to drill some supermarket floor tiles with them and for anyone that cares, they are literally bulletproof.

theyve got an sds drill for 34.99 aswell is that any good??

Good price

"Heavy duty" drill bits for 72p each, from Lidl? I love a bargain but can these really be that good, or will they overheat and go blunt if you use them on anything more dense than MDF for 10 seconds? In my experience cheap drill bits == false economy.

Have had drill bits from Lidl and Aldi in the past, and they're still going strong.

Recently got an SDS drill as well, so I'll be checking these out.

Well since these are masonary bits (for using on things like brick) using them on MDF wouldn't be very productive. I would suggest your past experiance of drill bits has been garnered from not knowing owt.

Taf - The drill is a bit on the under powered side but looks ok for the money if for light DIY use..

Good catch. I was trying to think of something that wasn't particularly dense. Obviously I'd use wood bits for MDF, but the same applies - generally cheap bits can go through concrete fairly well, but tend to dull very quickly on stuff like engineering bricks or whatever super-heavy materials they built my workplace (1930s school building) from. Trying to run a cable through a wall in this place is ridiculous.

Hi anyone can give an idea how deep each bit can drill please? ie can it drill through 6 inches of wall? or a foot?

they are literally bulletproof.

What gun did you fire at them?

Fair point then but without trying them its impossible to know. For £7.99 I will probably buy a set and if they are crap then so be it. Having renovated a house from top to bottom in the last 12 months I have found my drill bits tend to get lost before I wear them out (cheap and expensive ones)

Might as well as lose the cheap ones

At 3 inches thick and tougher than granite it would'nt matter if you took a 50cal to them :). They have to be this thick because of the electric pallete truck / forklift use in store at Lidl. These are tough bits, more than worth the money - they do need a decent coat of wd40 to stop rust though.

I brought a set of these a couple of years ago, they seem to be quite good quality for the money.

I bought a set that looked identical to this from screwfix a few years back. They've lasted really well too, much better than some bosch and dewalt ordinary hammer drill masonry bits I use in the cordless.

2 year warranty so can't be all that bad.

Length varies with size but you won't be able to go through more than about 6" of masonry with any in this set. Toolstation does a cheapish set of longer drills for large holes that performs well.

In my experience, inexpensive SDS bits from Lidl, Aldi or other sources are pretty good and will take a fair amount of punishment. One reason is because the SDS system is much more efficient than conventional percussion drilling and working in masonry is so much easier than it used to be in pre-SDS days ... (when I were a lad and we had to get up at 3am and walk 10 miles uphill in the rain before we could even start drilling!)

Get some in they are good for the price!

Got these ages ago, happy to say they are decent quality!
