I dont have a Lidl one, but I bought one from Screwfix (Titan) for not much more. I bought it for some dirty jobs and its fantastic, corded with hammer action. Keeps the Makita goodAnyone got one of the wee £19.99 hammer drills?
It will do all I need for DIY purposes, however I'm not sure if this is a new safety design or if I got a dud.
Took the drill out of the box and thought it was weird that it wont spin up unless there is pressure applied. Immediately thought it was defective, but then thought that since its a hammer drill, its spring loaded and perhaps its a design feature for safety, so it spins up is pressure is applied. Great, but when removing the drill from the hole you've just drilled, it wont spin thus not removing swarf in the traditional way.
I'm still thinking defective drill, but was curious if anyone had another to know for certain before trekking back to Lidl.
I'll never need expensive tools for all I will ever be doing so this made sense. The way this only spins up if pressure is applied has thrown me though.I dont have a Lidl one, but I bought one from Screwfix (Titan) for not much more.

The SDS? Yeah there was a few of them still knocking about on the shore road store.My hammer drills spin when removed from wall. Unless hammer only is engaged, and then they only hammer when pressure is applied.
But do hammer when set to hammer/drill is selected and the button squeezed.
I’m curious as to their big electric breaker beast. Were there any of those about?
Bill, what about a claw hammer? Either wail them in or trail them out! Maybe the back wouldn’t hold up to it..
Got a set today connswater has load of tools.
