Damn you, you made me spend £50

Me also,should of stayed in bed

Great find,this will get hot

are these any good? anyone own one?

The product and price looks good, the negative feedback, and lack of response, or explanation, looks very disappointing.

BE VERY CAREFUL!
'SDS quick' is unique, the drill does not fit normal drill bits or SDS bits!

Thanks lazy boy I was not aware standard sds won't fit in here I was just about to buy one as well.

on fence at moment, seems good but extra money needed to by the drill bits got to be factored in

Damn you too.

Had to buy 2. One for myself and as a future present for dad inlaw. Fed of of using my corded 10kg SDS drill for 5mm holes into concrete. This one is 1.1 Kg according to the manual. The stated 2.7Kg probably includes the box. This drill is also advertised elsewhere for more than £100. Heat added. Thanks OP.

Been after this type of drill for a while.... good price IMHO,,, and some good reviews !

Bought mine... I was no. 14... half hour ago.... now 29 sold ...so some think it's a good deal

Well done OP

You'll struggle to find any bits longer than 5" to fit this. Good price but very limited usage I think.

you can buy chucks that fit sds, not sure if you need to buy the sds quick adapter then a chuck, another £20 if you do.

Cheep but I wouldn't buy this as You need special bits. Just been looking at the reviews for this item and this seems a good set of bits to go with it but it's from Amazon Germany.

Those won't fit it sadly. They're just the regular x line bosch drill bits. Not sds.

Can't find a "sds quick" adapter anywhere either.

Would have definitely bought one, but reduced range of bits seems to make it useless

Bought.
Not bothered about finding long drill bits for it as I have a large wired JCB hammer drill I can use is I need to drill through the side of the house. This drill will be perfect for all the indoor DIY jobs

Looks like a good deal, but as others warn very hard to find bits for it. Looks like some tips on Amazon reviews for it to buy another brand bits or Amazon Germany for the official set of bits.

On the subject of adapters, has anyone actually seen a "SDS Quick" to SDS or SDS+
one problem is they use the word "quick" as in you can change bits quick - so be careful

I translated the reviews and they state that these bits work with the Bosch uneo. I found these bits from a review on Amazon uk. I would 100% say these bits work with this drill. Just use google translator on a few of the reviews on amazon Germany.

You're right. I didn't look at a close up, which looks like they could well be the right ones. Some reviewers do say they fit this drill too.

Same as the German ones mentioned earlier. Don't think they're very good quality for that price though.

Probably cheaper to buy the adapter I linked to earlier though.

Bit cheaper here

or the less useful "up to 6mm" toollineuk.com/pro…072 but unsure if that second one fits, would appear to.

Why would you buy a 14.4v sds drill, it won't do anything. If an 18v struggles on walls and blocks etc , what hope is there for this machine. Don't waste your money unless using for light jobs. Bits as other have mention are expensive, and it doesn't come with an additional chuck either like other products you can buy. The additonal chuck would let you use you old or ordinary drill bits. Spend money wisely.

Additonal chuck around £20 - £30, However I saw an 18v Jcb Combi drill for £69 in SLOUGH B&Q with 2 batteries, but not lithum but 5yrs Warranty. Still good value.
Edited by: "Pureego" 5th Aug 2012

Upon further investigation i've found that any hex bit set will work in this drill so just search on eBay for "hex bit set" there not much more expensive then normal bits. I use these bits for my 7.2v dewalt screwdriver and there great for quick changes.


Edited by: "BigBuds" 5th Aug 2012

bosch uneo bits are widely avalaible on ebay for around £3 each - only really need a couple of 5.5mm and a 6mm for odd jobbing around the house and garden. good drill for £50 imo.

If I had to choose between this Bosch drill and the JCB you mention I would choose the Bosch. Personally i wouldn't buy any of these, you would be better with a Mikita or Dewalt for a bit more money.

A drill that only uses proprietary drill bits made by Bosch, which will no doubt be sold for a premium.
Sounds like a nice little idiot trap.

Avoid like the plague.

lol at SDS "quick" as well - because standard SDS+ bits take so long to change

If you have an 18v SDS that struggles on concrete thats a rubbish drill., However if you have an 18v standard hammer drill that struggles on concrete, that would make a lot of sense.


Oh wait from your recent post I see you don't understand what SDS means.

Do not use ordinary, straight shank masonry bit on an SDS with an adaptor. SDS bits are much stronger than ordinary bits as SDS hits very hard vs an impact/percussion drill (impact/percussion hits more often per second, and has higher rotary speed) Ordinary masonry bits in SDS may break often and/or break the adaptor and chuck, worst case: you'll shatter an ordinary bit and have a nasty accident.

The adaptors are only to enable a bit of rotary only screwdriving or wood/steel/plastic drilling.

Pureego

Why would you buy a 14.4v sds drill, it won't do anything.


It will, and 10.8v SDS-plus are now being made available as professional tradesmens tools to drill small hole up to 12mm diameter. Even for light duty SDS retains a key advantage over impact/percussion: impact/percussion requires the user to steadily press behind the drill to keep it going forward, SDS doesn't need any weight behind it to work effectively, so the user only has to 'steer' it forwards to makek progess i.e. it's easier, less work for the user.

10 bosch sds plus bits on ebay £14
9 bosch sds quick bits on ebay £12

if you're going to give a negative review of an item, at least do some research first. maybe you can get really cheap sds plus bits from screwfix, but the quality of them is exactly as the price would suggest. i only buy bosch or dewault bits anyway, so there is no difference in the price of the bits whatsoever.

RuudBullit

really??


Yep, Bosch invented the SDS system.

The standard now is SDS-Plus and SDS-Max for the really big drills. Those are very widely available, and the patent has even expired so you can get really cheap, albeit rubbish SDS-Plus bits that aren't as good as the original spec required.

For DIY only users Bosch have created this SDS-Quick standard. Nothing else fits, it's only on the UNEO drill so you're 100% limited to whatever bits Bosch choose to sell, and at whatever price they choose. Buy this drill and you're a 'captive' customer.

If you want an SDS without these limitations, either: buy corded or pay £200+ for a pro quality cordless that uses SDS-Plus
