I should add that this is not just a drill for those that don't know.

This is ideal with the bits provided to break/chase in walls and to remove tiles etc from walls, floors including breaking out masonry.
any link? can't seem to find it

any link? can't seem to find it



The link works, I just reserved one, seems decent value for money.
same here
I have one , it did the job and cheaper than hiring one . Made short work of de-tiling my bathroom as Bomberman noted .
It looks exactly the same as the screwfix own brand one which is significantly more expensive, and is a good bit of kit
how long is tha warranty on these?

is it just the 1 year?

It does look very similar (the Titan model has the rotary/hammer selector on the side as opposed to the top), but visually that seems to be the only difference. The drilling diameter specs seem to differ slightly, but not much to sway it for one over the other certainly! If so, this is very competitively priced indeed!
These are good drills . If you are going to use it a lot maybe worth spending a few quid on the 3 year guarantee. Unfortunately none in stock near me.
Got one of these - dug up a section of patio and large amount of concrete in a bathroom. Also used it numerous times to drill into walls where a normal electric drill could not - made light work of it all.
Excellent price.
As others have said, and it is a rarity for argos lol, this is a good bit of kit especially for the price
Thanks op just ordered as I have been waiting for a deal to come along. Don't forget top cash back for that little bit extra off!

Heat added
Cracking deal
Out of stock unfortunately - didn't last long.
Managed to get one, thanks
Bagged the last one (I think) at Shepherds Bush - Cheers!
Haven't tested it yet but Its damned heavy which is a good sign I reckon (_;)
Wakefield and Leeds have stock
Got one in Liverpool. Thanks!

​Yep looks like the Titan.
Stock in Meadowhall and Sheffield Angel St. I can vouch for these for the money - good tools.
Reserved the last one out of the closest 10 Argos' to me, 10 miles away. Have used challenge xtreme before, as does my brother who is always DIYing and never had any problems with them. Definitely good value for money. DeWalt/Makita don't do the job any better! Why pay a premium just for a name?
Just ordered. Thanks OP. Just the job for when my dewalt cordless won't cut it (e.g. Curtain rails into concrete lintel).
seems confusing is this a beefer up drill or a proper sds one?
I reserved one in Milton Keynes this morning but am not buying it now, if the reservation is any good for anyone let me know.... Reserved till the end of tomorrow
ordered one. used my step dads sds drill as wanted to fit boards to a concrete blocked garage. did it in seconds even a decent bosch normal drill wouldnt touch it

if its anything like the titan range i will be very happy. only issue is the chuck was crap and fitted a rubbish one.its cheaper to get a new drill it seems
i got a very similar (probably same) drill 10 years ago from b&q. it is still going strong!

get an SDS chuck and it is great for using with a mixer paddle for mortar/plaster

Have you tried clicking the link in the original post?

It's item number 258/4957
Thanks op. My drill didn't have power to get through the wall, so was looking for a cheap sds drill to do the job - and this was it. Great price.
I purchased from Dartford, Low field store. And anyone else after one of these. They still have stock, at the moment.
Have a very similar model to this one, had it for years, never let me down. Managed to source one from Carlisle for myself, so my son can have my old one. I'm all heart x
Does this drill accept sds plus bits?

Thankyou
