"Sparky are made in Bulgaria - but you wouldn't know it. Built like a T34 tank, I've been mixing concrete, drilling brick and plaster, cutting high strength concrete, removing wall tiles, and I daresay if I really wanted to, I could use it as a screwdriver or take the wheels off my car with it.
Really impressed with the way that this drill just takes everything in its stride. It got a little warm when taking apart my old concrete garden path but other than that, hasn't shown any signs of strain. I guess if you were sensible you would hire a jack hammer but why bother when this drill is so good? The vibration reducing handle works well. Only niggle is that the forward/reverse switch is very light and easy to flip unintentionally. (Note that this drill also comes with an ordinary as well as SDS chuck so you won't have to throw away all your old drill bits.) It comes in a blown case the size of Cornwall with 'Sparky' on the side: The drill body is purple in colour, which you can't see in the catalogue very well.
If you need a drill that can pretty much handle anything, this is a good choice. No NiCads to run out, a bit of a 'crazy' name but I like it!"
"I did not know this brand and have always bought makita and was told it was linked to makita. So i took a punt and it is a really good drill, plenty of grunt and it comes with a great package with a 1 year gaurentee, 13mm keyed chuck and adaptor, pointed chisel, flat chisel."
"It's not too heavy for extended periods on channeling through plaster & brick for example but not heavy enough for big lumps of concrete. The extra Chuck means all my old drill bits can be used & its comes with point & flat chisels too. I bought a Sparky Belt Sander & 9" Grinder last year & they've worked & lasted well so I expect this Hammer/Chisel drill will too."
