Lidl SDS-PLUS HAMMER DRILL
My Bosch sds blow up while using a core drill
Lidl sds £35-40 Cheap -
powerful, but while useing it with a flat bit drill on pine it cought
on a knot and nearly broke my wrist as it twisted round
One of the things I allways look for in a large drill is a safety clutch kinda assumed they all had to have them these days
I now regard this Drill as risky to use but
Lost the receipt as I would throw back them

Never come across a drill with a safety chuck that will stop it snapping wrist , was you using the handle ?

I found this a bit heavy I think it's 4.8 Kg, so I'm now thinking either:-

A lot more expensive that the Lidl one, by the way Aldi do one very similar, still same weight.

Or

The 2kg relates to the Impact weight, not the weight of the drill itself.

Ah, that explains it.
So if I'm looking for a light weight one how do I find out how much it weighs? Contact the seller / manufacturers?

All those you mentioned show the weight of the drill itself as well, but they are around the 4.8-5kg area. I doubt you will find one much lighter than that.

Nice. I want to remove tiles, there are 2 layers of tiles 1 stuck on top of the other, I could use a bolster chisel but that might take a while.

I want a light weight one because I have neck problems and I'm worried that too much weight will put me in pain, I also want a cheap one.

I did buy the lids one but returned it once I found it was @5kg, I didn't actually weigh it,but if I knew how much it weighed I might be able to get something lighter.

I've got a Bosh hammer drill and that's fine

No rotor stop.

I wasn't sure what a rotor stop was, so I googled it

"The final advantage of many SDS drill is rotary stop. This means you can attach a chisel and rip tiles of walls in seconds (they just wouldn't come of easily with a bolster chisel and hammer)"

So I guess the one I put the link to you can't use for chiselling.

What about this one from B&Q
