It was £49.99 a while ago on screwfix when it was on sale. Now its gone up so this is clearly a better deal compared to screwfix one back then and ofc now
Drill will do the job for occasional DIY, you'll want to buy a better set of drill bits though.

Occasional DIY lol.

Have you used one? Had one for years, used and abused and still going strong.

The bits are absolutely fine too, its not like metal drills, SDS works by brute force.

I actually have, and used it on a few jobs before it gave out. Got a dewalt now and hasn't skipped a beat - and it's been properly abused. Thanks though.

Yup..made me laugh..these are monster drills. tough but very very heavy.
I have to prepare my arms for a few days for the lifting before I use mine
Love mine, taken some serious abuse. This is the best price I've seen it going for and a bargain.
Agreed, accurately named drill but mine has taken all the abuse I could throw at it and still works. I think screwfix used to give you a 2 year warranty.
I'm an sds newbie - anyone know if this needs grease? tips on where exactly on the drill to apply it?
excellent find just what i needed thanks :-) dont forget 10% cash back through quidco on all b&q purchases as well
Was looking at this yesterday, with the voucher it's a lot better deal. Thanks op ordered
Have one, goes through walls like butter. Be careful to use the hammer / drill function appropriately to avoid exploding bricks.
Yes it does have a grease reservoir but never had to top mine up, though i don't use it very often.

​Ive got 2 20year old Bosch SDS drills and although i should have, I've never greased them once.

Agree with you can't be without one, only need a small percussion drill for the tight spaces this won't fit in. This does everything else, most importantly it has a clutch for core drilling that alone is worth the money.
Just looked at the picture I'm sure this is the old design, the new one at screwfix has a magnesium gearbox.

It seems like it and the impact energy is 5J not 8J.

​it says magnesium on the drill and I already stated 5J.
I have this, it's great apart from no reverse gear which was a pain when putting 150mm screws into railway sleepers.

It needs greased but for occasional use I don't think it will need it.

Awesome price, heat.

I know , i tried core drilling with a sds from lidl as my Titan was left on another job. It jammed at full speed and ripped out of my hands and smacked me in the chin with handle it ******* hurt my wrists big time, never will i core drill again without a clutch.
I've had this for a while and it's great.

​i used the same drill bit with an sds+ to chuck adaptor that came with this drill. this one, i found it more effort to go into the block wall due to its weight. the Bosch 18-2-li plus was lightweight and it was no stress. the 18-2-li plus is the second most powerful cordless Bosch has. over 60nm torque and so on. only proper sds drills such as makita and dewaltz are better than the cordless.

Rotational torque does not mean a damn thing when comparing cordless to an SDS, rotation just shapes the hole and pushes debris out through the flutes.

Whats important is impact energy and blows per minute.

If you still insist a cordless is more powerful it makes me think you were not using it correctly.
Anyone know how long that discount code is running?

​mate, that sds drill is very heavy. when u need to put holes in at height it is exceptionally difficult to put any force into it. thus the cordless was easier. the cordless got plenty impact energy also.

i used a makita once and it was lighter definitely and definitely didn't need much to go through concrete. i didn't use the titan on concrete but breeze block and the same with the cordless. the Bosch was far easier to use and went through just the same as the titan. £49 Vs £300 sds drill and you have to think there's got to be something there.

i am pretty sure that who ever gets this will be returning it straight away.

Agree with this bit - it's a heavy drill and can be problematic up ladders.

I use a cordless hammer drill for 90% of my general jobs, because it is more maneuverable, lighter, and as far as I see it, the right tool for the job.
However, for heavy duty use, such as drilling into concrete (which is for what this drill is for), I wouldn't waste my time with a cordless hammer drill. This is from first hand experience - I spent 5 minutes using a DeWalt Extreme 2 masonry drill bit trying to drill into a concrete fence post, and managed to get about 1cm through. Once I got the SDS drill out, it genuinely took about 3 seconds to complete the remainder of the 5cm deep hole. FWIW, cordless drills do *not* have a great deal of impact energy!

I don't doubt that you could buy a lighter sds drill - some of the lighter 2kg variants are great for what they are - again, I would use this for particularly heavy duty drilling.

If you're drilling breeze block, you really don't have these issues - the things are easy to drill using pretty much anything!

I really don't thing you're giving this thing a fair trial. That being said, I would go for the newer variant with the magnesium gearbox if this one doesn't have that.

Yeah it is heavy but its for heavy jobs like drilling large diameter through cavity walls, drilling lintels, hardened concrete floors, core drilling and light demo work.

If your only drilling breeze block at height then a cordless is easier and correct tool for the job. Ive put holes in breeze block with a screwdriver.

Try drilling 16mm dia in hardened concrete with your cordless, just wont happen.

You cant slate a product when you havent used it for its intended purpose.

​lol, as i said if it struggles going through breeze block i very much doubt it will be any good going through hard concrete.
thought titan was screwfix own brand?
