Good drill for the money
16 Feb 2012
By agedbiker
, East Kent
"An excellent drill for the money. Supplied with 3 sds drills and a flat and pointed chisels. I have only used it so far for drilling brick and concrete but it seems to cope o.k. Comes supplied with a sturdy carry case to protect the drill. Excellent for the home d.i.y.er."

Great value drill
16 Mar 2011
By Spratie
, Dorset
"I've had this drill for a few weeks now, I needed a cheap drill with chisel action to chase in wall box's as my old faithful Hilti has given up the ghost....
I've worked this drill quite hard and found its up to the job with chasing out walls,drilling large timber joists with a 2" wood bit, fitting an SDS adapter and using it as a power screwdriver. This drill performs like a top branded drill but with only a 3rd of the price.
I would definitely recommend it to others,
Can't say about reliability as its still new..

"Used it for taking up tiles, does the job great.
It's not a heavy drill, so easy to use for long periods.

SDS Drill
9 Jul 2012
By Haggers
, Stourbridge
"An okayish piece of kit, found it struggling after a few days work, so not really man enough for the medium to big jobs. Essentially the hammer mechanisim started to failed even though the job wasn't that demanding. Screwfix did replace without a quibble, although the replacement is now showing signs of the same failure. I would spend a bit more and get a better brand"

Feels like a toy
18 Jan 2013
By Se82741

"I bought this a good few months ago but never used it, so until 2 days ago it was still brand new in box. Picked it up as I havent felt like using the 5kg sds for a quick 2m long chase to an already cut brickwall. That is how long it lasted, about 10 minutes really, after that the hammer action was gone, which makes it totally useless now. On top of that, it was probably the weakest drill ive ever used, very weak impact on chiseling action, and the chuck does not fully lock when set to chiseling mode, therefore if you slightly twist the drill, the chuck will let go and rotate.
Ive used some cheap drills before, but this is honestly the worst of all.
For a cheap sds, go with Titan, they seem to be more reliable...
