I have this drill and it is a f*****g beast
This would take a house down with no trouble at all not so good for little jobs as it is a weighty tool
Great price, nicknamed the "Mother in law".
Makes alot of noise, does a lot of damage and hard to control!!
Ok, ok, I'll buy one. Jees yous guys.

All the "my previous pet can't drill concrete for toffee" and "this eats walls for breakfast" have me convinced
I have to agree with Bazzer55.
I'm not a pro when it comes to house demolition, but I have the slightly heavier version of this drill (which I doubt makes much difference) and it tackles tasks with great ease.

A regular electric hammer drill is nothing compared to one of these and at this price, it's a must if you want to make short work of masonry tasks.

In case anybody wants this but prefers delivery might be worth looking at the screws to get over the £50 free delivery order...

Super price for a quality toolkit.
i bought this last month and it is amazing! - went through our extremely tought concrete wall life a hot knife through butter..i had previosuly destroyed a dewalt Extrememe masony drill bit before giving in and buy this to hang a radiator - far cheaper than getting a plumber in and i get to keep it!
Is there a big difference between this and the 6.3kg one that cost £59.99.

Was looking at this then saw the big brother for £59.99.

bought the one you mentioned yesterday.

Going through a concrete lintel was like a hot knife through butter, whereas my trusty combi didnt even scratch the surface.

Oooww that does sound good, thanks for the heads up. I'll have to find a lintel of my own to attack.

Its only a bigger brother in terms of weight.

Think of it like Joshua and Ruiz

Joshua packed the most muscle but Ruiz was the beefier of the two with more stamina when it mattered

Sometimes the same can be said about these drills

I picked up the one with 22 accessories. Well worth the extra tenner.

No worries - this one includes TTB653SDS, auxilliary handle, 5 x SDS plus masonry drill bits (6, 8, 10, 12 and 14mm), 2 x chisels (flat and point), pair of carbon brushes and carry case.

So your extra few bits might be worth that extra money but I'm not so sure

I want to cut some holes for extractors through external walls. 125mm I think. This is enough and more right?

Have a half wall demolition job in the waiting too which this should breeze though as well?

I think this drill will be fine with that the issue you may have is finding the right sds core bit that suits.

The demolition part - definitely - failing that a sledge hammer more dramatic but equally as effective
I bought this a while back, it is a beast. Used to drill holes for a curtain pole in a concrete lintel.

Also used to remove tiles as part of a bathroom renovation.

Great tool to have in the arsenal.

You need to buy a proper core bit, and use it with the hammer function off. If this doesn't have a clutch, hold the drill tight. It will bite and twist around otherwise, broken wrists, getting hit under the chin or being knocked off ladders are real possibilities.
I have the slightly heavier one... It's great. Proper bit of kit. It replaced a Lidl one which lasted less than a day before the motor blew up.

This is precisely what I bought it for.

Rather than buy a core drill, I mapped out the hole and drilled a series of guide holes to cover the required 125mm diameter. I then used a chisel attachment to knock out the material between the guide holes.

Very easily done and any oversize hole should be covered with the extraction grille, so long as you don't go overboard with the chiselling.

The cost of a core drill will easily match the cost of this entire drill kit, so a little care in the planning can save you the cost of tooling that you'll rarely need.

I've done both of these jobs with the 59.99 drill. + Chiseled up tiles, a few concrete posts, got a mixing attachment and stirred no end of concrete and levelling compound. Drilled about a million holes.

By far the most useful tool I never knew I needed.
i bought this maybe 3 years ago and been good faithful on concrete work. As mentioned with others it goes through like butter. Very powerful indeed.
If you have a small sds (battery) and this beasty your set for most concrete work.

What lintel was it hardened steel if it didn't even scratch it lol? Any decent drill will destroy lintel i have been there i wouldn't risk it any more...

I've got a combo that's pretty much as high torque as I could find and it doesn't touch my.lintels. Took three hours to drill three holes to put up some blinds.

Older concretes a bloody nightmare, the aggregates they used in it are a nightmare and all they did was slap a 10mm coat of plaster over everything. Give me reinforced concrete and steel any day.

Exactly what I was trying to do.

Gave up after half a hole drilled in 45 mins

Or an SDS bit for it, which is proly handier?
Only thing you have to watch out for is that this is a beast!
I attempted to drill a hole in a concrete post (non reinforced) & it took out a chunk of the concrete.
Went back to using a percussion drill.
Question is moot now anyway as managed to break off a sds drill in the chuck & cant locate replacement chuck.
Excellent drill although a bit on the heavy side so not for wimps. Will slice through most jobs without much fuss.

If you're not using a proper core drill, which are very expensive, this is a good option. Certainly not impossible with a normal drill such as this, but there are definite issues that could arise.

I think when I saw it was posted already. Thanks for posting in any case.
Just picked one up from my local Screwfix. Hopefully drills through concrete better than my current drill.. our new blinds are still waiting to be hung up after a week!

I have this drill, it's the absolute business. Spent ages burning through bits with my previous drill to anchor a wall hung toilet frame into concrete floor. Went out and bought this in frustration and it was like a hit knife through butter. 10/10 would recommend
I bought one a year ago and would give it 10/10.
I broke two drills and then bought one of these....it’s not going to break anytime soon! It’s a monster.
drill, this is. Gone and bought one couple days ago as my mates was knackered. The MIL of all drills but a bit on the heavy side.
So no benefit in the bigger one for an extra tenner? Just want to smash out the concrete around some old fence posts.
Thanks for posting @PennyTrader we've added this to Highlights

I have one and it’s nickname is The Beast. It is a monster of a drill. It has coped with everything I have thrown at it. Including breaking through six inch thick concrete.
