Ryobi 800W SDS Rotary Hammer Drill £89 Homebase - click & collect
Posted 12th Sep 2020
Been looking for an SDS drill for a while and unearthed this at Homebase. Reduced from £120. Seems to be stock around. Stil too rich for me but might help someone.

Ozito hammer drill kit also reduced on there for cheaper + twice the power. Some mixed reviews however about it being hard to use (like most cheap hammer drills like the titan).

Most ryobi cordless seem to be on clearance too, probably for incoming 2020 models
How does this compare with the below:

The cordless is half the breaking power (1.3 joules Vs 2.7 of the corded).

Generally if you're doing a job that requires a rotary hammer and have access to power corded is the way to go. Much higher power but sometimes bulkier, plus won't eat batteries in minutes.

Cordless is best for drilling smaller holes up a ladder, in awkward places or where you can't get power. Also on that note you'll want a 5 or 6ah battery for it so that adds weight too.

Edit: also maximum hole size on the cordless is 16mm whereas it's 28mm in concrete on the corded which goes to show the better power. Neither listing shows weight annoyingly which is very important for these items so you'll have to compare elsewhere for your needs. 3 year warranty on cordless Vs 2 on corded.

If you just want a cheap heavy breaker then Screwfix titan is highly rated and if it packs in, warranty.

Summary:
The cordless is probably only good for putting small cables through walls (16mm hole maximum) and would probably struggle with anything above that or anything more than breaking tiles off walls. Check it's weight though because if it's light it might be very good at that job for working up ladders etc but get something corded for proper holes or breaking.

I agree with @Jetaylor ,the Titan from screwfix is great. I bought one the other day for £69, it came with drill bits and chisels. I have been using it all day today to break up a concrete pond.

Twice the power again but from most reviews can be difficult to use. The ozito apparently exhausts air out the back, burning your hands after long use (may be exaggerated) and no anti vibration so you will need to wear gloves and take plenty breaks, not an all day tool.

The bits are apparently trash too but hey, it's a cheap tool with bits, might do some decent damage for the price just remember to wear goggles and gloves.

Depends on what your using it for? I have the 18v SDS and used it just yesterday for putting up a housename plate from a ladder . Which was doable one handed , i also have the Titan corded SDS and assuming this one is a similar weight theres no way your hold it one handed up a ladder! Or getting it out for the odd hole here and there.
If you are just drilling occasional holes up to 12mm and chipping off kitchen tiles the 18v will be great.

Anything more and you will want corded ( but you probably wont be arsed using it most of the time unless its a big job)
Not used this one but the Titan one from Screwfix has been about my best friend during lockdown!

Amazing power for the price.

Agreed. After failing to drill into brick walls for curtain poles using my Combi hammer drill, I bit the bullet and bought the same from screwfix. As someone said this went into the wall like a knife into butter. But downside is that it through out lot of dust.
