We have a fantastic range of tough, reliable, professional standard SDS hammer drills available for hire nationwide. SDS drills are designed specifically for boring quickly and efficiently through the toughest materials such as brick, concrete, masonry and steel. SDS stands for Slotted Drive System (sometimes referred to as Slotted Drive Shaft or Special Direct System) - this refers to the way in which their chucks and drill bits work in order to produce the extra force and torque needed to drill through concrete, stone and other tough materials. These drills combine the rotary action of a traditional drill with a pulsating hammering action, as SDS drill bits feature indents on their shaft that allow them to move backwards and forwards in a piston-like motion within the chuck. This method of drilling transfers energy more precisely and efficiently than standard hammer drills, meaning much more powerful and effective boring capabilities. Our SDS drills are from some of the best brands in the business, such as Makita, and they are available both for trade and DIY users. We have light duty and heavy duty 110v models available, 18v and 36v cordless models, and SDS Max combination hammer drills for more challenging, heavy duty drilling and breaking work. We can supply a 13mm 3 jaw chuck adaptor which allows some of our SDS drills to operate as standard rotary drills, using standard drill bits. We can also supply SDS drill bits in a range of sizes for all of these drills. Book an SDS drill hire online or over the phone and you can collect it from your local store at the start of the hire, or we can deliver to you.
