I dont understand these stupid comment about SDS. This drill is more than adequate for your typical diy work. Can drill easily through bricks and capable of putting up shelves. Picture frames etc. A diy person has no need for an SDS unless they plan to take out huge chunks of a wall.

Simple this drill will work on lighter jobs and SDS is for the heavier work

There is no comparison really

Looks good for the price
That's a lot of tool for the money. Heat OP
I have these for years now and it's really good
Great price, not SDS but you can't have everything.
I have the PSB 700 (think that’s the older model) - looks just like the pic.

Heat great drill for that price - yeah not SDS but some people are going to want non-sds for lighter work.

Yeah but you can get it for 30 from Amazon. Just make a new account , sign in via the app and you get 5 quid promo code for first purchase over 20.
This looks like a gun with that foregrip
Personally I would say spend 20 quid more and get a decent SDS drill from Screwfix. I never use my hammer drill since I bought my SDS. (Although mine was from Aldi).

No it has the same looking chuck as this one.

Non SDS, but insert drill bit, twist to lock and off you go.

I agree SDS can seem better but lots of people are gonna have drill bit sets that are non-sds and of course would need something like this to use with them.

As I said for light work e.g. drilling into internal brick wall for raw plugs it works just fine
Potentially stupid question, but is this ok for drilling into walls?
I have owned one of these for at least 12 years & it is still going strong.
Don't hesitate to and get one at this great price
Non SDS hammer? That sounds inherently contradictory

5.9 Kg vs 1.7 kg though, is quite a difference weight wise.

SDS are more professional grade. I wouldn't be without mine. Cuts into brick like a hot knife through butter. And I used to love my black and decker hammer drill (30 + years old)

True, but there are lighter ones. The weight is a bonus to help with vibrations.

Depends on the DIY. Drilling cores through brick for TV runs etc is DIY. And it's an opinion... It's only a bargain if it will stand the test of time. I'm not saying don't buy this. I'm saying personally I recommend an SDS ... If you want a basic hammer drill then there's a cheaper and better one...

SDS drills come with a chuck adapter

Ah well never knew that. So with the adapter I suppose you can use non-SDS bits?

But this is still a good deal for a non-SDS drill in my opinion.

My old Bosch like this was abused for 15 years (ish) before it gave up the ghost after being used to power a mixing paddle - that killed it in the end

Have to agree.

In a perfect world you’d have both - I mean for light work a light drill can be a god send if you’re holding it for long periods - and this is a great drill for that.

Then you borrow your mates cordless sds Makita when you doing a load of heavier drilling - like into external engineering bricks like the old style’ DPC or fitting a load of external CCTV cameras

Ha ha ‘time share tools’ that’s my phrase of the week.

Not sure what model my mates cordless makita is but that kicks ass for making holes.

Also used heavier corded sds for breaking external concrete - in that case the power and weight were definitely helpful

They don't make them like they used to. My black and decker was abused... And still goes strong like new. But I use my cordless drills for light work and SDS for masonry. The new b&d wouldn't last five minutes. And the Bosch don't look much cop either imo.

Depends if you mean holes (drill bit) or cores?

This is what most SDS drills come with.

screwfix.com/p/e…BwE

A decent SDS drill bit is about £2... I'd never go back to buying Poundland bits. One drill bit a year for £2 or 50/week .

By holes I mean drill bit - 6,8,10 mm etc

I’ve drilled core holes for toilet waste etc and agree I’d use a corded sds with a clutch for that. Not sure if the cordless makita would be up to that (or if it’s got a clutch) - it might it’s a pro tool - but I think there like £200 so no comparison with this - a deal for a £35 drill

Yeah just checked the link. Seems ok. But does say max masonry capacity 20mm

Have you used that to drill a core for a toilet waste? Edit - should really have said ‘soil pipe’ That’s like 100mm - you think it would do that?

If not then I’d rather have one small and light corded and a heavy sds monster that can do the lot but weighs a ton

My buddy has this one after using my Aldi one and seeing the difference. He cored his cooker extractor (110mm) with the Screwfix one (using my Aldi core set).

The bonus is that Screwfix have a two year no quibble returns and exchange for any fault. I replaced my wonky drill at almost two years. Refunded. And resale no quibble. New two year warranty. (Now that poor drill gets abused). I'm only onto my third (the second was a dead battery...).

They are heavy. But my SDS takes about two seconds to drill a hole my black and decker would take 10/20#second.

If I'm on a ladder I tend to use my cordless 18v Screwfix (which really shouldn't be used but works great for the odd screw here and there)

If my cordless is too small I break out the SDS. The anti vibration actually makes it more .... Enjoyable? ... To use. Esp with the joint pains.

The titan is a bit overkill for general use. Plus it's quite heavy for just drilling holes all day.
