Well this seem more like regular drill with some hammer action. impact power is not specified so probably weak.

My friend had one.
Not good.
Much better spend a bit more on something nicer

Its not the best drill, but what are people expecting for twenty quid?

That's a fair comment

If you actually need a SDS drill over a normal drill with hammer action then you need one that'll do the job not some cheap junk that'll frustrate you and just take up space.

Might not be the best sds drill.But probably will drill stone brick concrete etc ten times better than a standard drill.Some people want a £100 drill for £21.

21 delivered is a great price! HOT

'A bit more ? Could you be more specific next time as I am sure you are talking about £50+ ? This is £20 drill that will drill in concrete much better than even branded, far more expensive standard drill.

Would rather pay more when I want a drill I expect it to work not waste the rest of the day stripping it down to fix it, probably best for spares usually £30 this but Machine Mart do there's for £40 when they have there vat off days and MM say its contractor quality don't think so probably good DIY'er drill

I used 'some cheap junk' for nearly 15 years, moved house with me about 8 times and I used it for everything. Now I'm in a better position I own better tools, mainly upgraded because I needed a hammer and my old one wasn't, but I can honestly say my Bosh is not 5x a better drill despite costing 5x more. Of course if I was a regular user I'd want something better, but most people I know only touch a drill half a dozen times a year. I'm actually tempted to get it as a spare.

Not that it would stop me from buying this for occasional use though 'with pneumatic hammer action' it is not.

FFS its £21 and you don't even need to leave the house it'll be fine for putting up picture frames and curtain rails etc

If you're a builder go and get yourself a makita

Would this be any good for mixing plaster? (Occasionally)

Would I need to buy a drill bit set/chuck or anything like that?

didn't want to mislead anybody, will remove it, just in case.I am unsure about this part of the description

I bought a duratool sds drill from cpc i'm not sure what watt it was but i have found it to be excellent.

I got this too, as mentioned on the older thread cpc.farnell.com/dur…339 I've read about people mentioning SDS shanks (I have NO clue about drills, this is for my boyf) but have no idea if I need one? Edit: Sorry, just realised someone answered that!

There were more powerful Duratool SDS Hammer Drills for sale but most are out of stock now, alas. cpc.farnell.com/cor…rue

I would say you would need a much better watt for drill to do plaster and hardwall with my whole family are plasters (not me but use to work with my old man )

its got a years guarantee and cpc are excellent at honouring them. Nothing to lose HOT

HOT IVE ORDERED THIS TO GO WITH SOME SDS DRILL BITS THAT I GOT IN A GREAT CASE FROM SCREW FIX SOME WEEKS AGO ON AN OFFER

Cheers vnrider, might look for something with more grunt.

I've used a similar drill to mix plaster, worked fine. FYI, I'm a DIY plasterer (still did a better job than the previous 'pros' I've had).
SDS plaster mixing paddles are available so no chuck adapter required.

Sorry that's simply not true you can mix plaster with a battery drill never mind this.

If it has a drill stop function (hammer with no rotation), they make a superb alternative to a cold chisel with right bits and practice.

Channeling out for pipes/cables etc.

Would this be OK for drilling a hole for dryer vent with suitable bit? Bearing in mind the bit is about £12 and the drill £21, its cheaper than the £40 quote we have had for doing it.
