Thanks for the explanation. I've read a few times just so it makes sense. (y) (y) (y)


Agree - There are 5 stores nationally with a total of 6 units in stock (possibly inventory errors). This seems like a good deal for the price but availability means this is only a good deal for 6 people max!

@crazyg A conventional (cam-action) drill moves the whole chuck back and forth to create the hammer action. That's what the drill in this post is. A rotary hammer uses an electro-pneumatic system to drive the drill bit back and forth within the chuck itself, and they always have an SDS chuck as opposed to a three-jawed chuck. Rotary hammer drills are far superior for hammer drilling, and can usually also be used in hammer-only mode (i.e. without the chuck rotating) for chiselling and demolition work. There's a bit more to the mechanics than that, but that's the differences in a nutshell (y)

Cheers, father in law showed me how to use a hammer drill to put up a blind as I struggled with a normal drill because of the cement block. Will come in handy for putting up blinds and curtains in future.

I wish German tools like Wera Wiha Gedore Hazet Knipex NWS Stahlwille etc would "flood the market" with cheap tools. Unfortunately they're expensive because they ARE good (like British tools USED to be before Thatcher & co helped them close down and get made in China - resulting in them closing down permanently whereas the germans realised that supporting their goods theres still demands for QUALITY not cheap rubbish. Note, we rarely see Japanese hand tools which are high quality too in the west - they don't need to. They sell well at home as did British made tools until late 70s when Thatcher came on scene)

why is this even posted? can be had cheaper and cheaper still on trade!


The pipes are clipped as far as the ones I can see.As for the correct terminology who cares it cured the problem .Just putting my experience out there it may or may not work for others but it's a 2 min process to see if it helps and cost nothing which is kind of what this site is about


umm..your not turning down the pressure your turning down the flow rate...not the same thing.


Pipe clips won't stop water hammer, they will only stop pipes banging. Turning down a stop tap will not reduce the pressure but will ease the effects of the water surge filling the system each time an appliance or tap shuts. A vertical capped off peace of pipe fitted adjacent to the offending appliance will do a similar job. Air traps in the vertical when the system is filled and will act as a damper. Saying that air will leak into the system over time meaning the system will have to be drained and refilled for eg. Inside these hammer arrestors there is normally a piston with seals to stop the air on the pressurised side escaping. The thing to do is investigate whether you have banging pipes or water hammer.

Thanks guys for the views,I appreciate it! will check the titan one as mentioned as with getting somewhat sparks of decent weather it's giving me a day to get my hands nice and dirty and all done! Drill bits aren't the issue, just the bricks are some damn good old solid ones! Built better than I am it seems. The drill(s) I have at the moment are plenty old and do the job of putting shelves and what not up but never had to pierce brickwork.


Sounds like you need to invest in some quality masonry drill bits,get along to Screwfix, speak to the staff and they will sort you out 😁


An SDS drill will do what you want. Getting a decent one that's not too heavy for £40 May be a problem. Theres a Titan one at Screwfix for £50 that is rather heavy but extremely powerful.


I'd agree that for drilling into brick or concrete blocks then SDS is worth the extra money, and *definitely* if you are drilling larger holes (more than rawlplug sizes).


There’s a Bosch green SDS that’s usually about the £40-50 mark when on offer. Having struggled on putting some units up in my garage using my 18v cordless hammer, I went out and bought the Bosch and it was like a hot knife through butter. Horribly loud and destructive lol

So is this better quality than the Bosch that's available around the same price? Every drill that's posted seems to attract negativity in some way and it puts me off. Who cares if it has the same mechanical parts as another drill?


A tumble drier. Seriously though, are you drilling into brickwork? Almost any drill would do and get some decent drill bits. If you drill once a year I'd get a mains powered drill for £35. If you're into DIY then this drill is a good choice

Having used one of these, I have been converted from 'why spend £20 on a hammer when you can get one for £5' to 'buy a decent hammer and the job is so much easier and more pleasant, plus it'll last a lifetime'. Amazing hammer. We had two wine racks to put together, with what seemed like hundreds of pieces of wood and metal. The one put together with this hammer took half the time compared to the one put together with a cheapo hammer. The handle didn't reverberate so much, there was more force per hit due to the superb weighting of the head and it was apparently an altogether more pleasant experience. I never thought I'd be a hammer snob, but I now am converted to Estwings.

Either, but you typically only find hex-shank on smaller diameter drill bits (apart from the likes of spade and auger bits) and cheap one's aren't that good, so you're as well with cylindrical.

Bit late on this one, but that's not a rotary hammer drill, it's a conventional hammer drill. The photo and description clearly show it has a three-jawed chuck; rotary hammer drills have an SDS chuck, which is intrinsic to their design.

I had to check the DATE B4 I made this comment, just to be sure it's NOT April 1st...A Hammer Drill for a FIVER? (Lower wattage option) Worth it, if only for pilot holes in wood, and/or perhaps as a screwdriver (as is the case with my £10 ARGOS version, if yer careful...no Torque settings) or just curiosity? HELL at these prices, there disPOSable. With my ARGOS drill, I didn't expect sparks to fly...

I just screw up my face, squint a bit, clench my butt cheeks and drill. Its worked so far.


I agree it’s cheap but after a good number of poorly drilled holes in brick I threw it out and got a £30 bosh one with a better chuck that performs so much better. The teeth on the chuck key also rounded off really easily.

It depends what you're going to do with it. An SDS drill has a certain amount of play in the mechanism - it's inherent in how the drill works - that makes it unsuitable for accurate drilling, particularly in soft materials. OTOH, SDS is great for drilling into very hard materials that an ordinary hammer drill, even this 1300w DeWalt, may struggle with. If I could only have one drill, it would be the hammer drill, not the SDS.


Agree! And you can additionally turn off rotation to just use hammer - for removing tiles (buy a good wide flat bit) or breaking up hardcore. It is heavy at c6kg but it is incredible value for money inc a 2 year guarantee. Don’t get me wrong, I love Dewalt and own loads of their 18v kit - but this is excellent bang for your buck.
