I see the tool snobs are out...
Well tool boys, of course you want to pay 10 times the money for a makeeta.

Any wireless alternative?

Good price. Lidl have a good one to for £40 posted earlier by someone.

None that will happily mix plaster or core drill for any money. Best see Doc from "Back To The Future" for that one.

screw it....

As someone pointed out in the other post it has no clutch, so core drilling if you get a catch you risk spinning around with the drill or burning it out. This has clutch and high rating.
Horses for courses...this one is a lot lot heavier.

Yes it looks a lot better. And if I didnt have the lidl one from a couple of years back I'd go for this. The clutch would make a big difference. And hundreds of reviews say its good ;-) mine does stick and it is a pain

Dont forget to use TCB for extra savings ;-)

I borrowed this from a friend to remove some bathroom tiles and it was superb.

I will be adding one to my tool collection for occasional use.

Had a 2kg makita broke after 2 weeks.
Now using this heavier titan at fraction of price so far so good!

Makita don't make quality stuff any more. My workplace buys it and most breaks within 6 months, and don't talk to me about Facom tool trolleys, cast drawer catches that don't latch, snag and snap. We're on trolley number 3 (can't buy any other make as it's the only one on our purchasable item list) they must have known there were problems as the last one has flexible plastic catches.

it has no reverse

With a 2yr guarantee & the accessory kit (worth at-least £15) it's a no brainer if your looking for a reliable sds corded drill

I got one of these at this price in feb as it was cheaper than hiring a breaker and it did a great job of breaking up 2ft deep of post support concrete...bargain

Already got one myself and highly recommended......Hot from me!

Any good for opening safety deposit boxes?
Looks good heat added.

what is this like as a screwdriver.?

Love my Titan! Bought this last year to take on masses of concrete. This thing is solid and cuts like a hot knife through butter.... Very heavy but that is because it is hardcore!!!!

The Lidl one does have a safety clutch.

Yeah worked well for me recently, cheap enough to chuck once used

This looks identical to the one Aldi frequently have on sale. I have that one and its coped well with DIY use.

bought this some months ago - best tool I have - when pushed into a DIY corner, & need to make some noise this does a great job, indeed where my normal drill just cant go...

It'll probably tear the head off of the screw ;).

Use a cordless drill for driving.

These are good value for money. We bought a suspiciously similar looking Black and Decker one (albeit red!) a couple of years back, for about this price, and it's been fantastic. Saved us a lot of money from hiring breakers and heavy drills when we need to drill into concrete.

Does anyone know how good the drill bits are that come with this drill? My house is made of ridiculously tough bricks that has owned other drill bits I've tried!!!

had 3 of these over past 6 years, great drills and only reason for 6 is running them into the ground

5k weight so a lot of sds action

Bought one of these years ago as I owned a flat made from concrete but it was also reinforced with flint so nothing would dent it and the bits with this handled it without a problem, I am still on the same bits now and have not had to replace any yet.

its always been this price don't be fooled, great drill

i got one. its a beast. love it.

This looks a lot like the Wolf SDS (not plus) drill I got a couple of months ago - if it's anything like mine then it'll go through masonry like a knife through butter.

for the money these are decent. its pretty powerful and at its best in hammer only mode for chipping plaster render tiles off.

I find it a bit overkill for drilling.

However my Hitachi is much lighter and just as powerful. but cost twice the money.

Can I hook this up to my new iwatch???

Good start got it home to test and it seems the drive gear is permanently engaged meaning no hammer function on its own. doh Ill take it back tomorrow and swap it over.

This is a beast of a drill and quite heavy, maybe a bit too beasty for most peoples DIY needs but it is an excellent drill all the same and superb value for money

Someone then came on to say that the lidl one does have a clutch.

As I said above, horses for courses. This is more powerful but much heavier. I know which one I'd pick to core drill and it is powerful enough to mix a bag of plaster (do so at your own risk).

Bought mine the other day, building a wooden ramp outside, about 7 foot long because the steps are too dangerous for the kids... Its proper overkill for drilling into wood, but hey I wanted a proper MAN drill and it certainly is that! I had to drill into the wall and floor which was REALLY easy.

However, used as a screwdriver I had to use it on speed setting 2 (our of 6), It does it perfectly well but it has NO REVERSE function. So good luck getting them back out again when this thing has whacked them in and jiggered the head up of the screws

picked mine up today and wow what a difference to my old hammer drill. 3 secs and I was through the brick whereas before my old drill would have easily burnt the drill bit out before I'd drilled a dozen holes.

it's not supposed to be used as a driver. you need a cordless or a simple screwdriver for that.

This drill is basically for masonry work.

Think I'm gonna get this drill.

I didn't realise how expensive drill bits are! This comes with a 14mm bit but I want to drill a bigger hole, probably 30mm. So I'm looking at £50 for a 30mm drill bit??

e.g. screwfix.com/p/d…559

Is that right?

The hole I want to drill is for a few cables.. maybe they'd fit through a 14mm hole but some of them have pre-moulded connectors that would barely fit through.. I'd rather make the hole big so its more versatile in that sense.

Just out of curiosity.. for a bonus point.. how big of a hole can you drill in a brick wall before it breaches its structural integrity??

I'm a bricky by trade and your last point is a tricky one. If it's in the middle of a wall taking out 3 or 4 bricks together is fine. If it's near anything like lintels it's way more complicated.
