    hitachi drill set

    I've always just used the drills provided at work, but thought its about time I invested in my own setup. I'm a big believer in "you get what you pay for" and "quality products last". I've never had chance to get my hands on a hitachi drill so not 100% on them. I've found a good looking set...

    Makita 8391DWPETK drill - Advice needed

    I'm new to this so in all honesty, I wouldn't have a clue at what is good and what's not.

    quick question on sds drill

    Makita HR2230 or Hitachi DH24PC3 both are the same price but which would any of you recommend? I have been using a cheap one, think it was argos for about £40, only problem with it it doesn't lock when in hammer only so the chisels move round as you try chasing walls which is a right pain.
