Amazing price for a high quality drill, rated at 650w.
Note you will need a site transformer, and the drill is not suitable for chiselling as it doesnt have roto stop. You can't go far wrong for £40.

Note: remember its 110Volt

Nice deal! Tempted to get one as our current SDS drill is a little bit OTT, and this might be a bit more smoother.

SDS drills are one of the best tools to own if you live in a stone or brick house, they make doing any major DIY possible.

i thought SDS drills were for chiselling, so this will just do the same as my hammer drill then?

Thanks...ordered it for my boyfriend.

No, the point about SDS drills is the way they apply the force of the hammer blow. Much more energy is applied in the forward hammer action, making drilling into hard objects much easier.

Do you need to buy a transformer for this drill? Thanks

Sorry,just read the post properly , a transformer is needed.

Use a good sds drill once for drilling stone brick etc, and you won't want a normal drill again.

With it being 110v this will need a plug in transformer as this is for site use. It's a good price though for a decent make. I have a similar DeWalt SDS drill (240v).

If it is for home/DIY use you would be better off with a 240v.

But yes SDS is better than a regular percussion drill.

The roto stop function means that you can't use a chisel/pointed attatchement and the bit doesn't spin round it just hammers. Unfortunatly this doesn't have a rotostop so you can only use it for regular drilling or hammer drilling.
