Great deal for a very powerful SDS Hammer Drill, much better than the Bosch I posted a while back.

Product Description
The main difference of the HR2630 over its predecessor is a much improved mode switch which lets you go from rotation to hammer mode and vice versa without the need to rotate the chuck. This machine also comes with a set of 10 drilling and chiseling accessories.

Box Contains
1 x Makita HR2630 240v
1 x Carry case
1 x Side handles
1 x Depth Stop
1 x Accessory set (5.5x160mm, 6 x 160mm, 6.5x160mm, 7 x 160mm, 8 x 160mm, 10 x 160mm, 12 x 160mm, 15 x 160mm, cold chisel 20 x 140mm, bull point 160mm)

I can't decide to take a plunge here or wait for better deal on DHR242Z, which currently is around 60 dearer with no battery.
Need to make a few holes in neighbour's car, thanks OP.

Unless you regularly work on sites with no power, go with corded every time on a hammer drill. So much less hassle having to charge the battery / have multiple ones.
So many times I've come across a job that needed use of the hammer drill more than I thought, that I ended up going back to corded for it.

For normal drills though, battery is fine (easier, last ages), but hammer drills with a chisel etc. in will eat the battery.

It's on loan, his neighbours got it. Said he has a few holes to drill
Can this be used to break up some concrete stuck to a wooden fence post?

Easily, but watch out as the fence might not survive. This is a beast.

No worries, The post snapped of in the ground when a rather short helpful neighbour was lifting a sofa over a 3ft high fence post... Snap!!! goes the fence, now snappyfish has to remove old concrete and the rest of the post on the ground.
Bought this last night
I've bought my first house. I want this so I can feel like a real man! Unfortunately, my dad has a ton of drills which I can borrow when needed and doubt i'll get enough use to justify spending a ton on it but I really want some proper power tools of my own. Without my own power tools I feel like a far lesser man (having a slight crisis I think)

A real man is stubborn and refuses to give in to the might of power tools - try using your teeth as an alternative to the SDS hammer drill action and just use a drill bit a spin it in your hand as fast as you can to drill holes in the wall! Admittedly these techniques take slightly longer but once you have succeeded then you are a proper man! Or you could just buy the drill... Choice is yours!
Never heard of this brand. Better stick to big names like Bosch or Black & Decker. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Majors is just as big a brand as the above. We sell all the above brands and Makita are the choice for me every time over Bosch and De Walt.
Black and Decker are a diy tool and not a pro tool like Makita, Bosch blue or De Walt.
Makita, not majors. Predictive text!

Had the same problem last week and chosen this one, its cheaper, comes with £20 worth of bits, and corded = more power
I bought it for £103, drill goes through concrete wall like butter! chisels same! Very happy with it.
Got mine today, quick test on the old shed base in the garden. Solid concrete turned to butter. Not sure how I've done 2 houses without one...
