Makita SDS Plus hammer drill. On sale at a geat price if you don't mind having a white one instead of the usual blue.

I got the blue one last year for £139, it's probably one of the best purchases I've made tool wise. So much easier to drill through brick and concrete, I'd never use a percussion drill again. I use it for chiselling plaster off too but you're probably better off with a larger 5kg type for that.

Comes with pointed and chisel bits, and another 6 drill bits.

Seems to be plenty of stock where I checked locally.

110v version available too it seems.

Not sure why it's labelled as 3kg when the others are 2kg....here is the blue one anyway if you want to read the reviews

Also on offer is the Hitachi equivalent SDS at only £99, slightly more impact energy at 2.7J but no free bits.

Saw that, that's a good price too, although can't vouch for it as never used one.

Have a previous version Hitachi 2kg hammer and it's been bullet proof for the 3 years I've had it and this new model Hitachi is supposedly twice as durable as before, if you can believe the blurb from Hitachi.

Mind you I don't think you can go wrong with any Makita, Bosch, Hitachi and to a lesser extent Dewalt tools when it comes to SDS+ drills.

You should post it then, that's a good deal, everyone should have an SDS drill :-)

A lot of my other stuff is Hitachi, so like them a lot - belt sander, circular saw, angle grinder...the ubiquitious 18v drills that are always on here.
