With 1200W, power higher than most at this price and SDS which should make drilling through brick and hard substances easier than standard hammer drills.

Reviews seem good though and I will collect mine tomorrow so don't have hands on experience yet.

"The hammer action on an SDS+ drill is driven by a piston firing the drill bit forward and pulling it back. The slots on the SDS+ drill bits allow an amount of back and forth motion and this, along with the smooth ball bearings, increases the strength of the hammer action of the drill. It also reduces friction inside the drill. In other hammer drills (or percussion drills) the whole chuck will move back and forth. As you can imagine this is a much less efficient way of delivering the energy, as the impact will be less concentrated than with an SDS+ drill.

All of this also means there is no need to lean in hard on to the drill to get it to work efficiently. The hammer action is sufficient without the need to apply a large amount of pressure so you are able to let the drill do the work."

Thanks ordered
According to the reviews it doesn't have a reverse gear if this bothers anyone

Better deal imo. Worth every penny unlike this. Many say Mac allister is terrible
Agree with the above - I bought the Titan. Cuts through concrete lintel like butter. The only disadvantage is weight. At 5kg it's a heavy unit and keeping it steady at above head height can be hard.

Is no reverse really a huge issue? It's this one or this for me, but I can't decide....

That's a rotary hammer drill, not an SDS+.
Completely different and nowhere near as powerful.

Indeed a 5KG SDS is a heavy beast to work with for DIY jobs. It almost a pneumatic road drill!! Great if you are drilling down and using gravity as a friend.
I am looking at a 2KG SDS+ from Screw fix.

Bought the Makita at £119 last year. Cant believe I struggled all these years with a std Hammer drill. Its worth it.

Ah, showing my nativity there! So is the fact it has no reverse likely to be an issue?
This looks like the Titan 1500w SDS, probably a different motor, but the 1500w is about £60-70 depending on bits. I'd say even you buy this and use it once, it's cheaper than getting a "professional" in to break up some concrete.

I looked at the Titan too as it's more powerful and has good reviews but the downside was the 5kg weight.

Beasts come heavier i guess lol im sure an average adult can handle 5kg weight above head for a few mins. Besides the titan is powerful so shouldnt take too long for a job?
Still unsure to whether to buy this considering the drill can't go in reverse...
