When using these things be careful around metal. It is incredibly easy to get carried away and it is quite possible to shatter the bit and injure yourself.
Same principle as pneumatic drills.

Wear appropriate countermeasures.

Bet it can't get into my Mrs' purse

Sorry but someone was going to open that door

Gonna get one of these plus they have inspection cameras for under £40

but why???

Good deal for what it is but overkill for most DIY uses. Got through a 2ft brick wall easily using the Argos challenge SDS hammer/chisel drill (£49) and have been killing it with work the past year without breakage.
Can't see a Kango being needed unless lifting concrete as will be unnecessarily heavy for most tasks.
Heat added for the price.

+1 It will do the job great but for most DIY cases the SDS will do it just as well

(and much cheaper)

Easier to hire one, usually £15 to £20 for the day.

Will it get through the walls of my local bank vault?

I'm sure it will get through eventually, and if it breaks down during your heist you can always pop into your local Aldi and get it replaced and commence drilling

Been watching American Psycho and I think one of these would work well...

who buy them? never seen any bought

Bah, when will their mitre saw be back!!

Loads of people buy the hardware, go down to your local store next time they have something big on like a welding kit and see how many are queued outside waiting to buy one.

do these come with the dildo attachment

Why, would that swing the deal for you?

It's wheelbarrow wheel week!

As seen on crimewatch?

Awsome things.

Spent an afternoon breaking up a concrete foundation, covered in dust by end and massive grin.

I've done a lot of concrete breaking around outside my house using a Screwfix Titan SDS drill. Why it hasn't died a long time ago I don't know. The only thing about it that drives me crazy is that the chisel bit rotates with the chuck which if you are using a flat chisel as opposed to a round one, is pretty hopeless. I would hope with this that wouldn't be a problem although right now I haven't got enough work to justify buying such a specialised tool.

The other thing that I have discovered through trial-and-error is that SDS drills are pretty useless for precision drilling because the bit is just a loose bayonet fit in the chuck, so I only use it for drilling when a normal mains percussion/hammer drill won't do the job.

This or Lidl's SDS? Where are the chainsaw deals when you're in the mood? oO

Yeah but I think using the Demolition breaker takes it to a new level.......

Mine is pretty tough to turn when it's in hammer mode so doesn't turn for me, I can see that would be annoying but for me I don't have that issue, obviously this will be better but for many diy jobs the sds costs half as much and will do it just as well... I was gonna get one of these until I remembered I had the sds in the back of the garage and I can't fault it

Looks like the same as this one, so looks like a good deal

eBay 1700w breaker

I bought the Rockworth badged version of this breaker back in 2007 on eBay for £80. Since then I have used it to break up foundations, driveways and paths. I have also used it break up hard ground when digging out holes for fence posts. Probably the best £80 I have ever spent. £99 in 2015 is a very good deal. BTW if you need a wider chisel the Silverline 282538 is the one you need. I bought mine on Amazon on 2012.

Had to hire one of these when putting in fence posts as no other tool can break up the concrete. Cost £30 for a weekend hire but struggled to do it all on the weekend, so for £100, I'd just buy it and take my time.

Good deal.

I bought screwfix one at 150 and it's worth every penny hire costs would have been a bomb and I would rather do the job at my own leisure than rush with hiring

​nah just buy two and you can return the unused one but remember to keep the receipt oh unless your behind bars.

Think I'll buy one and give the neighbours a piece of their own medicine, see how they like it.

If it turns in hammer mode then surely there's something wrong with it!

As for precision drilling, all you need to do is light press the bit against wall (to take up slack) and start very slow. Once you have the point marked then drill away. This works on rough surfaces too.

There should be a switch that disengages the gearing and just leaves the hammer action, all of mine do even the cheap one I bought from Netto years back for £20 just to get the drill and chisel set that came with it.

Picked up one from Aldi Blackwater (Camberley) about 10:45 this morning, there were a couple still left in stock after I and another bloke grabbed ours.
Anti vibration gloves were also on sale, right next to them, and might be a good idea when using the breaker.

Purchased one this morning, the case has wheels which helps when walking through the store and to the car. This makes a lot more sense than renting one and rushing a job in probable poor weather with a higher risk to injury. With this I can my time and if the heavens open I can go inside and drink tea.

Yes, I was very thankful for the wheels, given I had to get it home on the train (with a 10min walk at either end).

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ANYONE WHO HAS PURCHASED ONE :
Before use, check the oil level, mine had none in whatsoever. You should be able to get the required type (SAE 20W50) from any good motor retailer.
