I've noticed some cheap cordless SDS drills coming up soon, so I wondered if anyone had any experience with the following

Nu-tool 24v SDS £30 +VAT

JCB 24v SDS £70 + VAT

Before anyone says "Get a Makita/Hilti/Bosch etc" This drill would be used very occasionally for a few holes now and again - but would save us having to lug a jenny or long leads around.

Mainly it will be used for 10mm holes 50mm into brick or concrete

But the question is, can these drills actually drill?

Yes, its Makro for both.

Tesco's also have the JCB one for £75 as a clearance item

If used occasionally get a mains drill. After a while the battery will be knackered.

I would try the Nu Tool as I have only heard bad things about JCB plus the NU Tool is cheaper. It will come with a 12 month warranty, if it lasts that long and you chuck it, it won't have been a dear tool to own. :cool:
 
Think i shall pick one up at Makro this weekend looks alright for £30 if i was using it all the time id have that 24v Dewalt Screwfix sell for £250
 
i bought a ferm 24volt sds cordless from ebay for 45 quid(screwfix had them for 179quid)dont think they sell them now,and another battery for a tenner(srewfix 80 quid)and i reckon there as good as the bosch equivilent and it also has rotary stop for chiseling.
 
good things to check even at £40

minimum 1.5ah battery
minimum 2 batteries
maximum 90 mins charge

other wise the smallest job could take all day on the worst senario
the 1.3ah battery is flat after drilling one of six holes the charger takes 3-5 hours drills a further 3 holes :cry: ect ect :rolleyes:
