I am tooling up with Parkside tools to learn a few DIY skills. I have been recommended these tools beginners friendly.
I was looking for something that will help me drill holes in the concrete. The DIY projects are:
1. Fix a TV mount bracket.
2. Fix the curtain rod at a place where the supporting beam is.
3. Drill a hole for a cooking hood chimney outlet from Kitchen to the outside of the property.
I am looking for suggesting if this tool will be able to accomplish this. I have looked around but there is no information is this tool can be used to drill. There is someone selling the tool with the drill bits but I am not sure. I would appreciate if more experienced ones can comment about it.

Check out the titan SDS drill from Screwfix. Sometimes these can be picked-up for £49.

Titan 5Kg

If you are stripping plaster off the walls, 7.1Kg is big lump to hold onto all day long

Ideal for groundwork.

Yeah if you want a hole for an extractor/cooler hood probably better off with a diamond core drill attachment.

Thanks a lot for all the guidance.
I will check for the titan one.
I take it this one does not have the drilling capabilities apart from being oversized.

an inexperienced person using one of these is likely to end up with a bigger hole than they bargained for. If you are trying to make a screw hole and you get a fist sized hole you'll need to learn some extra diy skills pretty quickly.

And you could do yourself some proper damage using one of these to run a core drill for a vent. Definitely overkill if you're not familiar with drilling in general.

have a look at the 1000w guild one at Argos, its on offer at £39.99 and a two year guarantee.
its also in stock.

This thing is more for knocking a wall down not putting up curtain rod. It would be too heavy and cumbersome especially at height. You'd probably end up having an accident. Better off as others suggested getting something a bit lighter and user friendly with less impact.

This appears to be hammer only, no rotation.

Manual here:- http://www.lidl-service.com/static/177179893/277023_EN.pdf

I've used a Bosch SDS Max drill, borrowed from an electrician with a core drill to fit a waste pipe through my dense concrete wall, it was way too big and heavy and too much punch for normal concrete drilling, and really tiring on the arms. He used his 500 watt sds plus drill for most jobs, which was light enough to be used single handed up a ladder.

Thanks very much (from me and other occupants of the building) for saving our habitat. I would have brought it to the ground with this one.

I am now looking at the options that have been pointed to and will pick one up.

Thanks again...
