The Hitachi DH24PC3 SDS Drill looks a bit like a training shoe designer has been let loose on this, but it is a businesslike drill all the same!
I had problems with the first one which was replaced, but this may have been due to a faulty (loose) SDS chisel bit. The replacement has been excellent so far. Cuts chases well with hammer impact setting - not as good as a Bosch equivalent which I tried, but this one was on offer, so I think is fair value for the money I paid (under £150). (read more)
