"Does what it says on the packet! Drills in most masornary with a hammer drill, great for rawl plugging and triangular shank means it won't spin in the chuck!"

Would give 10 stars if I could

"This is the only drill bit that would work on my window lintels - I trashed two 'generic' bits trying to make inroads.
I've just bought this bit (different size from the lintel one) for a separate job and it made light work of some *very* hard bricks."

"My most often used drill bit. Glides through brick, concrete, plaster etc. Used on softer wall tiles without fuss. Takes some serious use. Buy these and expect spares to gather some dust."

The dogs gonads!
22 Feb 2010
By Reyalp

"Along with the Erbauer range of drill bits these are
as good as they get. No 'wandering' on first contact
makes sure it goes where you want it to and the
tri-chamfered shank ensures there's no slipping
in the chuck. Add to that they last longer than anything
else and the asking price seems like a steal. If you're
forever putting red plugs in walls, look no further!
As an aside, i've noticed they're almost identicle to the Black and Decker Piranha range, not sure what that means!"

DeWalt Extreme 2 Masonry Drill
23 Jul 2008
By Charli
, Yorkshire
"The pointed tip helps stop wander when starting off, the hex shank means no slippage in your chuck and it seems to clear waste pretty good too. A far better drill than others of a similar price."

Great for drillin through tile
18 Nov 2012
By Smudge375

"I use these to drill through tile with very little slip and no cracking.
The tips are long lasting but I have had a few where the tips break off after low use. All in all these are a good hard wearing drill bit.

Not recommended.

"As a carpenter/joiner for over twenty years ,I have been a regular purchaser/user of Dewalt power tools. I have found their tools to be of an excelent quality and fit for purpose. Therefore I had no hesitation in buying half a dozen of these bits for my toolbag. What a disapointment !. These are the worst masonary drill bits I have ever had the misfortune to use. They struggle to drill a hole in even the softest material and will not even break the glaze on a floor tile. Suffice to say that I have given up and bought a different brand instead."
