My bosch drill is 27 years old, eeeee when I was a lad, used here and there on light work and a fair bit of masonry. It is still going strong.
A bit of completely boring, useless information which adds no value to the deal at all.
Sorry, everyone.

I think you just made a point there by saying your drill is 27 years old.
I think time has changed and manufacturers should move on and stop making these useless impact drills. I had few holes to make for curtain pole and this exact model brand new just burnt the drill bits but wouldn't go through a hard brick. In the end had to go get my Sds from my friend who borrowed off for some work and it went through like there was nothing there. I know they little more expensive but they worth paying more and bits last much longer with Sds too. Screwfix got energer one for £49.99 if anyone looking for cheap Sds. It has lots of great reviews. And if you happen to live around slough area they have £10 off £50 spend this weekend only after they refurbished their store. So potentially £40 for something which actually works.

If you were putting a curtain pole up, you were most certainly going into a lintel, most cheap bits struggle as lintels are either concrete, steel or steel reinforced concrete.

While not a be all-end all drill, this would suffice for most domestic duties.
Barring lintels and core masonry.

It was just brick. I thought the same first. Maybe some tough engineering bricks?

Entirely possible, though usually used in the first 3 courses of a building up to the DPC.
You said you finished it with an SDS, so I presume you know what you're doing.
People think putting curtain poles up are a cinch without realising every door and window frame has a lintel above it, spanning the gap to support the brickwork on top.
I'll stop boring you now. Lol

My Black + Decker 900W hammer drill just blew up last week. Will this be a suitable replacement ?

I've one of these and had it a good few years and I've given it some grief even mixing 20kg of tile adhesive and its still going strong, i would definitely buy another one especially for that price

"Blows per minute"

*insert_joke_load_error*

On the lookout for a drill and bit set for fitting curtains as well as general diy stuff for round the house. Looking for recommendations that don't break the bank, I'm only going to be using it a handful of times every year, thanks. Budget is £30-£40

Went out and bought one of these. A fair drill, however, I would wait for the cheaper Aldi/Lidl drills. Practically the same and usually half the price.

My Bosch drill is old too but I managed to goose the keyless chuck and now the three grip chuck bits are firmly stuck in the body and I can't get them to budge even with WD40 and a hammer etc. Aargh !!!
A new one is the answer I suppose but the old drill is otherwise perfect

I've just been attacked by someone with a power tool. I was walking down the street minding my own business, then bosch

No, this is a fixed speed drill, you need a drill / driver to use as a screwdriver such as screwfix.com/p/t…82P?

Albeit deals on these vary hence this site’ just a matter of waiting and seeing which deals crop up

“Screw driving, drilling, and impact drilling function switch for material-specific working“
Bought one today, you can use as a screwdriver, however a little bit difficult to control speed. Minimum set speed in my opinion to fast for screw driving when you press the trigger fully, but the trigger is pressure sensitive and you shouldn’t have any problems with screw driving.
