Thanks OP, Ordered one for delivery.

Don't forget TopCashback too

This is great, ordered!

Just got one reserved at store. Open till 8pm today I hope

240 or 110 ?

I just paid online but haven't had an email back? Phone keeps dropping out so may have been me but it said at the end my card had been charged. Will try and drop by in a bit...

Does anyone know if this has a safety clutch at all, please? Can't see anything on the spec but I might be missing it.

Thanks, Lucy

bargain for light DIY use this looks ideal

Hot, purchased online. Missed this instore today when I was buying a Henry.

Bargain worx are a good make and fine for any use.

240 or 110 ?



240v

Reserved one, I have a stack of SDS bits I've never used as my SDS died a while back and I never replaced. For the money and the warranty (Guarantee: 3 year warranty (subject to online registration with worx.com)), I'll give this a whirl. Cheers OP.

That seems a good deal to me. Has hammer and drill stop - so you can use it for chisel action (tile removal, cable routing, etc) These make short work of fitting large fixings into walls so exercise some caution if you are used to a standard hammer drill, they go through solid walls like a hot knife through butter.
May get one instead of a replacement battery for my cordless SDS which costs more than this for one battery!

The description states 'Rotary Hammer Drill' but there's a set that comes with it that includes a Chisel... can anyone confirm, does this have a Compacting action as well as Drill and Hammer Drill? The inclusion of the Chisel obviously suggests compacting is a feature otherwise... you'd have no wrists left trying to chisel using rotary action!

Can't find anything about it either Lucy, though I have reserved one for pickup tomorrow but I don't really want to test it to find out if it does The drill will rip out your hands pretty quickly if it gets stuck, even my current cordless one I have which has clutch tugs just a touch before it kicks in and that is very strong amount of force.

Hi, yes it does. had a look through the manual - its on the product page for reference and its a 3 mode SDS and lists chisel/hammer action, drill action and combined. It's also visible on the selector switch in the pictures showing the different modes. A 2 mode drill usually just has hammer on or hammer off but no option to turn the drilling off.
Hope that helps.

Would recommend to anyone to get one with a clutch, given the price - very unlikely this has one.

Only 650watts.
For light work.Don`t use it for chiselling as it`ll burn out fairly quick

I got it to chisel some concrete, I have a proper drill for other stuff so I don't care if it burns out as long as I get my money back (and preferably it finishes the job). Never used an SDS so may as well see what they can do before spending on a good one.

Thank you for all your comments and op for posting. Ordered.

Thankyou for this.

I have a couple of drills for general use but if I need 1 for heavier duties(chiselling,diamond core drilling) I hire one.£5 for half a day.

Not having a car makes hiring stuff a bit more difficult

Do these take SDS+ bits or just SDS? Need a point chisel.

SDS+ chuck on this mate.
PDF copy of the manual here too - homebase.scene7.com/is/…pdf

gone for it , at that price it would be rude not to

Got it booked for collection tomorrow

Just had a call to say the one I ordered will be in tomorrow, oops!

Picked mine up earlier. Not a bad unit. It ain't gonna knock any walls down but still not bad for £30 and 3 years guarantee.

By the way, the drill is guaranteed for 2 years, you have to register online for the additional year (taking it to 3 years in total).

This is the link you need to register at: http://register.worxtools.com/home?brand=diy

Oh and one more thing... it STINKS! I mean literally stinks! It's a sort of chemical smell, I assume coming from the plastic. It's in the garage now, couldn't bear to have it in the same room as me for any period of time it's that over powering.

Had to argue with the staff a little to get it for the price reserved for (manager came out and just authorised it when he arrived) - now off price cut after the bank holiday - as scanning at £69.99 today and handily the email reservation gives an expiry time of 22nd but the text they sent me (which is all I actually looked at beforehand) says 23rd. Take your printed copy if you have one to pick up later in the week would be my advise as it's got the price reserved at on that and not the text message.
It's a lightweight SDS in comparison to my cordless one, which is a 4KG unit, but can see it is going to be a lot easier to drill holes while up on a ladder

Got mine, it doesn't smell LOL - just a little oil/grease smell is all.

So, any good deals on SDS bits?

So, any good deals on SDS bits?



Bought this set last year when I got my cordless. Was about the best value I could find for a set of bits and chisels
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000NC0JH4/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They have been great, certainly enough for jobs beyond just putting some shelves up for myself. Made short work of my dad's complete strip and remodel of his house, used daily for all sorts. I have used the scrapers for removing old vinyl tile, wall tiles. Channeling bit to bury some surface cables in our new place (solid stone construction), bits themselves are decent enough for the price and still drilling fine after about 9 months solid use from a "DIY" perspective right the way through the entire depth of a wall and deep into good quality concrete floor (to mount my motorbike ground anchor)
No complaints at all at that price.

SDS is a good versatile tool IMO, possibly better value than any hammer drill I have owned - can add a SDS chuck adapter to it and use standard drill bits (though advise not for hammer/chisel action) for metal and wood too. Paddle mixer attachment, even wood chisels are available.

I saw that one, was tempted but may go for this one instead as it has an 18 and a 20 in it:

Yeah that looks decent enough, I think the set I got has too many of the smaller bits now that I have used it for a while - you can easily drill a hole to put in a wallplug with a longer bit as a short bit IMO - that's what the depth stop is for. Bare in mind that as the drill bit gets longer and/or wider is when you find out if the safety clutch is present or not soon enough and you can do your wrist a lot of damage if it doesn't have it. Drill bit stops spinning in the hole and then the drill rotates instead which means so does your hand holding the drill unless you have the strength of Hercules
