- Which drill for concrete?
SDS would make life much easier and get an electric one (not battery). My Makita is OK for concrete but normally the Bosch comes out if I’ve got a bit more to do than a couple of small holes.
edit: if you mean this one ( http://www.screwfix.com/p/bosch-2kg-sds-drill-gbh2000-110v/26459 ) then it’s a great drill for the price. That’s basically the newer version of mine..Posted 4 years ago
My cordless Makita doesn’t want to drill into my concrete garage wall. I’ve got a few tough jobs lined up but I’m defo DIY rather than tradesman. Do I need an SDS drill and will the £99 Bosch one at Screwfix suffice? Or do I just need a new drill bit and patience?

Check out the 5kg Titan Rotary Hammer from Screwfix for £80
It comes with a load of accessories and is absolutely flippin amazing.
I had a 6″ concrete floor with rebar that i needed to make an 18″ hole in. Not quite like a hot knife through butter, but not far off. It drills through concrete lintels as if they were cardboard.
Did i mention it’s flippin amazing?
They do cheaper ones too.Posted 4 years ago29erKeithMember
If it’s a pre-formed concrete sectional type garage, then are full of re-bar too. That and the very hard concrete will destroy most drill bits and mean you get no where.
If anybody knows of a bit that’ll do it I’m all ears, no really I’ve the same problem.
screwing into the joints or hanging off of cross members or bolt fixings is the other optionPosted 4 years ago
