4 Reasons why the Makita SDS+ hammer drill is perfect for you

Why you should be choosing Makita for your next drill

There's a range of different names and brands out there when it comes to power tools, and everyone's got their favourite. But could you be missing out on the perfect drill for you because you've always used "so-and-so's" tools?

Lets take a look at the Makita HR2630X7 SDS+ Rotary Hammer Drill and see if your head could be turned.


At only 2.8kg this is one of the lightest drills in this category, meaning you can hold the drill above your head and drill with ease, perfect for vertical drilling or fixtures that need to go above shoulder height.

It's for Everyone

Whether you're a seasoned trade professional, or a keen DIY-er this drill will accommodate both. The solid build and robust design make it a strong machine for tradesmen, and it's much more user-friendly than some SDS Max ranges, which are strictly for professionals.

3 Modes for all occasions

Hammer : Perfect with chisel attachments for breaking up materials.
Drill: Great for brittle materials like wood to stop the hammer motion and just drill.
Hammer & Drill: The full shabang. This mode is used for drilling through really tough materials.

Fantastic Price

This great addition to your tool box is available for only £108 including VAT. With all the assurances that you bought it somewhere you can trust. That's not a bad deal is it?


Top tips : Always wear goggles

This piece of kit will dominate concrete. It creates a bit of mess when this happens and with the hammer motion it can throw dusts and debris back at you. Make sure you protect your eyes.

Top tips : Stop exploding mortar

When using any SDS hammer drill if you're drilling through an external wall, (to feed electric cables through for example) the mortar can shoot out at the other end and cause some damage to brick work. not to mention an unsightly large hole.

The best thing to do here is to drill through the wall using a very thin drill bit, then use this as a guide and drill about half way through from both sides with the proper drill bit. The small hole will make sure the hole is straight. And no more exploding mortar.
