I have one of these and I find it pretty good to use.
Drills through brick and concrete no problem.
I saw this, today too. I am still thinking about this or slightly stronger sds drill at small additional cost.

Suppose it depends on how often you use one and for what I have an 850w SDS drill that I bought from Argos a few years back and for the odd occasion I use it it's served me well, Drills through a wall, drilled some holes into concreate , chisels off old tiles etc all with ease. Course it will depend also on the bits you use, like with a standard drill I would suggest some decent quality ones.
Umm . . . from the description, it's implied the drill doesn't have a variable speed trigger? If so, it's a deal breaker for me (no pun intended).

Yes you're right, it is single speed with just an on/off switch.

An 850 watt mains drill without variable speed trigger control sounds nuts, if not actually dangerous.

Yes, it's certainly far from ideal.
had mine for years before it broke (my fault) - went out and got another immediately !
The on / off is not a problem if you are using it for the jobs it's best at - putting holes in concrete and chiseling or breaking bricks and concrete ,
it's a just a heavy drill for the big dirty jobs- you can not go wrong for £30
Got the Argos one. Worked well. Very handy tool but I paid £50.
Great drill for DIY! Used mine extensively throughout my renovation!
Very heavy and clunky, perhaps it has to be to do the job. As for demolition, I'd say maybe *very* light duties. I've used this for some basic jobs (breaking up scrap concrete and chiselling off a tiny section of garden wall) and it took an age.
I've had one from screwfix for couple of years now and can't fault it, it's had a lot of hammer too (pun not intended).
This or the one at Aldi that's on offer?
Anyone recommend a electric sander I can use to sand down a wall before I paint. Thanks

I'd like to know too.
I've bought the Aldi one which is more powerful at 1500w, 3 years warranty at £40.

Sure there was one on offer at aldi?

Yep here you go and heres another one both from aldi, depends on what you're sanding, if its just plaster/odd bit of old paint or filler, even a cheap basic 1/3 sheet orbital sander will do the job

I feel like it's been this price for a while now
Seems like a bit of a half way house. If you need drilling you can get a variable speed one which will do much more. If you actually need to do extensive amounts of chiselling and demo then you'd be better off paying for something a bit more powerful.

We bought a house previously owned by people with a love for doing all their DIY with impact adhesive and concrete. Never had an issue with a heavy chisel, crowbar and the heaviest hammer I could get. I'm not convinced this drill would be any faster than that and an ordinary power drill. Could be wrong.
My wife keeps one of these in her underwear drawer.

I'm only joking. She left me.

Mirka Deros 5650, pricey but the dust extraction features means being able to sand a ceiling or walls in your rooms without have a cloud of dust everywhere is worth its weight in gold.

Yes go for Aldi one, rotostop, variable speed, more power, good warranty.
Ordered 1 thanks. Wanted a decent corded drill anyway and this has a chisel too bonus for me. I know not as power full as my hilti that’s more like a machine gun but this should b good for small jobs
It looks just like the workzone Aldi one i bought a few years ago (which packed up randomly when i moved house). That was a dream for the DIY at home, demolished walls and concrete floors/paving with ease although for the floor a kango would have been better but i was being cheap. I wouldnt use it for drill laterally into walls, a normal drill with hammer will suffice as this will be too heavy duty and far to easy to destroy thing you dont want to with lol.

My use-case (and I suspect a few others are similar) is just to drill holes through brick walls for cabling. I've got perfectly good non-SDS drills for other jobs, but there's no way they're going to get through a cavity wall. I've used mine five or six times for this purpose, so it justifies the £40 I paid for it (from CPC), but it would be hard to justify spending more.
Thanks, OP! I've just nabbed the last one in stock at Lymington branch. The local hire shop wanted £20 for one day hire, for a similar machine, so for £29, it's a no brainer!

Thanks for the links. And what type of sand paper would I need to smooth down plastered walls ready for painting

Seriously, what are you, a Huddersfield FC fan or sommit? Only the lowest of the low would bring football to the conversation son, stfu and leave my team out of it! And yeah, the person has a point, you would have to be a DIYer first timer to think that a drill with no variable speed and torque is safe, but also, it's economical too dumbass!

If the walls have been fully freshly plastered and the plaster is rough, then use a 80 -100 grit working up (the higher the nunber of grit, the smoother the finish, lower number denotes a more coarse sandpaper), if its in better condition then use a finer paper 180/240 etc.

Bear in mind if the walls aren't freshly plastered and you just have, for example removed wall paper or other coverings, and are sanding it all down then the different surfaces will sand at different rates (ie highbspits, filler, old paint) and its easy to end up with an uneven surface.

If you have a lot of sanding to do I'd invest in a better quality sander with dust extraction as these power sanders / sanding in general produces quite a bit of dust.

Also you might want to check prices of replacement sanding sheets before you buy your sander as they can vary quite a lot between different types - orbital, random orbital, detail etc

Just to add you can also use a pole sander if you want to do it by hand, and wont need any stepladders.

Here's a pole sander at screwfix although you can probably find these types for less on amazon or elsewhere

It's been freshly plastered. Really appreciate your help and feedback. I need something that will collect the dust so no mess.

What would you recommend? I want something decent but like hukd, needs to be a bargain/value for £

You're welcome, if you just have large flat surfaces to sand, ie just flat walls and not any odd shaped walls mouldings or cornices to sand down, I'd get an orbital sander 1/4 sheet does the job, and is on sale at aldi as well, otherwise you might want to go up to a ⅓ sheet sized sander which will get it done faster and the sanding sheets arent too expensive - I picked up a bosch for less than £30 - its one of the best tools when redecorating. You could also look at the random orbital which have the round bases and rotate as well as vibrate ("random orbital") think the £30 aldi sander does this?

You could always buy these large sandpaper rolls and cut down to the size you require.

The large sand paper rolls, that would mean not using a machine?

Mine are just flat walls really. Just need a machine to give the walls a once over, smooth it out, hoover off and paint.

What's the differences between orbital and non orbital? Any major advantages and disadvantages of each?

Just cut off the amount from the rolls with a pair of scissors according to the size of whatever sander you're using...

Orbital just means that the sander vibrates (oscillates if you like) in tiny circles causing the sandpaper to achieve the abrasive effect as you move the sander across the surface ..on a random orbital, thr base additionally rotates as it vibrates - a two in one effect

The bosch i have is now pretty old but that's testament to how good they are, its only a 150w but it's been very heavily used and never let me down..


This seems to be the closest bosch model but its £47 (was £20 in Wickes but oos) so shop around - you dont need to get a bosch even a cheap one from Toolstation or Screwfix/B & Q/Wickes etc own brand will do the job
