I ordered from Amazon for £35 with a wait of 1 to 3 weeks so have just cancelled and got a refund. Ordered this to pick up tomorrow from local B&Q for £30. Thanks OP

I made the mistake of using the "£10 for 50 bits" sets that you can pick up at B&Q. You get a lot of bits for little money. But they're all sh1t and go blunt if they encounter some puff pastry.

As someone else mentioned here, for general DIY, the Bosch Multi-Construction bits amzn.to/2tl…Szw are the way to go. One bit will handle masonry, tile, wood, plaster board, whatever. These will be fine for putting up a TV mount. I've used them for brick work too.

For the concrete lintel above a window, the Bosch's mentioned above struggled with the it. I borrowed an SDS drill - but didn't need it in the end. Instead, a Dewalt Extreme Masonry bit amzn.to/2vO…5lz ate through it using a normal drill set to hammer mode.

To sum up - ditch the cheap bits, they'll give you sloppy holes (hurrr). Use the Bosch Multi-Construction bits. If they can't do it, get a Dewalt Extreme Masonry bit.

SDS drills are best for drilling into concrete etc but it depends what type of concrete. If you have light blockwork like Thermalite then it's pretty easy to drill into and this drill would be fine. If you have high density blocks then you'd need an SDS drill - Screwfix do their own one for £50 that is a beast, but you then lose the driving capability of a combi drill like this.

Why would this be easier than an SDS drill? Any SDS drill would have far more impact power than this. This is obviously decent as an all-round combi though.

I didn't mean that this would be better than an SDS drill (which is a term I dont know anyway) .
I just meant that this should have no problems with housework as I have put up shelves and TVs in brick walls with a 18v battery drill ,which takes a while but works . This is way more powerful
Hi all

Can an impact drill be used for car/window polishing? Is it has the same effect like a hammer drill?

many thanks

You can turn the hammer function off and then your buffing/polishing attachment will work fine for polishing.

For standard brick and block an impact drill with a good quality drill bit will be fine. Bosch multiconstrucion(blue fluted) drill bits will tackle a multitude of materials with ease and you don't need the impact when drilling into brick and block.
If you are drilling into concrete everyday then a sds would be a must as it is quicker.

Thanks a lot for all those comments and pointers: might try a sds combi from bosch for c.£120 then as we are moving into a new build flat soon and will be doing mostly concrete walls - also have the Bosch 18v but think it will work well with a sds combi!
Again.
Just wanted to give my review after having used this drill for the last 10 years of DIY, it’s awesome. Used for internal & external work. Whilst I dislike drilling into brick this has done every job that’s been required, and even helped a colleague when his drill wasn’t up to standard.
Leolian03/02/2020 11:03

I can see a hole in your argument.


Stop drilling him! You lot are always having a dig!

I wonder if I would need separate (and special) SDS drill bits and simply can't use my green mixed 50-pack Bosch drill set? Might just stick to a 800w bosch hammer drill then!

You almost certainly won't need a heavy duty SDS drill for DIY jobs in a new build. This Drill will be more than enough for 99% of jobs.

If you feel you've just got to get the SDS drill, go for the Titan from Screwfix for £50. It's a great Heavy duty drill and comes with SDS bits.

Am currently borrowing a corded drill and one problem is that the keyless chuck often comes loose when working with masonry. A fair few reviews of this drill on Amazon mention the same. Does anyone know if the chuck can be taken off and be replaced with a keyed chuck such as this one?

this is a great find!

for those who have an SDS, and an average DIYer then its no point getting this one. however, great for gifts during the year. if you DIY a lot then this is a great deal. im seriously contemplating this! I have a cordless SDS, but having a drill direct into power isn't a bad thing to have in your tool box...

I wouldn't for cars, as you need a Dual action function. if you use a drill, you have to be conscious not to leave if buffing on one spot otherwise it will burn into the paint. a DA constantly oscillates so it never stays in one place
Would this be able to drill through external and internal wall? Need to add extraction for new wet room or am i better off getting an sds? If so any links to a good one at decent price as only want to buy the one drill that will cover my needs.

Not normally but if your walls are solid concrete then a SDS drill would do the job allot easier.
I have on of these Bosh drill and it Will not drill through Accrington brick (outside wall) so I had to buy a SDS drill to do the job, otherwise it is a great drill.
Just a heads but you can't link up a Club account £5 off (for a £30 order) to the code for a £25 deal.
I spoke on the phone to them and they confirmed it
30 quid it is
Ordered. Cheers op
Why would you need this in your own house compared to normal drill???
I didn't need this but got one as it's so cheap.

This guy is right. I very much doubt you'll need anything more than this drill for work around your house. I have this drill and a more powerful makita sds and two 18v ryobi combis. All will still into brick walls. Obviously the sds is more powerful and quicker but is overkill for most DIY. Most hammer action drills will be fine around the home.
This, or the £25 one from screwfix? Any input?

Hi.

I'm not in the professional trade but having a keen interest in tools and large DIY projects I would say definitely not unfortunately.

If you are talking about a 100mm extractor pipe then you are going to need something much heavier duty.

The correct tool is a core drill with a powerful motor , correct gearing and importantly a clutch that disengages if the drill snags to prevent it twisting your arm off.

If I were you I would buy a quality SDS drill , something like the Bosch GBH 2-24. This would be sufficient to do the occasional bit of core drilling just take your time with it and you'll probably use it for other things like removing tiles or drilling concrete with ease. It's also not too big to be holding above your head like some of the SDS are.

I have an old German made Bosch GBH 2-24 DFR , it's been used to put a tumble drier vent in , get up floor tiles and the cement that holds them down and of course drilling concrete. I'll probably have it forever and wouldn't go back to a normal hammer now.

The drill listed is an impact drill , not a combi or sds drill. They call the cordless combi drills combi drills as they are geared and clutched to use as screwdrivers as well as drilling wood or metal , with a switchable impact setting for masonry work .

Good luck with your wet room.
Can this be used for driving screws along with drilling? For putting flat pack together for example or driving screws into joists?
Thx op, great price, bought one for myself
Thanks for this post op, I don't really need another drill but for £30 quid it's a steal
Just ordered.
Thanks
