    Ive been looking to buy a 110v sds hammer drill/kango and a good drill. Been looking at mikita and dewalt on amazon but dont know what models to choose because theres to many all in and around same price range. Can anyone tell me whats best for me. Im a handyman builder and do most jobs and looking to spend around 200 on the sds and 150 or there abouts for the drill. Might be able to stretch it alittle bit.

    200, 150? Lira? Euro? Dollar?

    £150 will buy you a decent roto-stop Bosch. Excellent drilling capabilities and ok for light chiselling, breaking.
    If you want a decent branded (mid to heavy duty) breaker then you are going to have to spend over £500. Don't be tempted to buy non-branded as they don't last and are not serviceable.

    Sorry 200quid. I just went ahead and purchased the mikitka HR2811f for 200£ and the 18v lithium-lon 2 speed cimbi drill with 2 batteries for 163£. Hopefully they'll both be decent enough for what I'll be using them for. Mostly drilling holes and taking up tiles and breaking away some block walls
