    I rate these two, I drill 24mm holes. But it runs out after one or two that size. On another note I bought the vac that uses these batteries, great bit of kit. Great for servicing and tidying whilst installing. Wouldn't be without it now.
    Don't take it personally, I'm always like this.

    Mine should be here tomorrow so hopefully it will do the job. I only need it for Hilti fixings into concrete.

    I still use my old Makita 12v SDS and that can "eventually" knockout a 28mm hole in solid double brick if pushed so you should be fine with that with or without a 5A bat, all that does is extend run time not increase power.

    I'm not a happy chap folks.
    I managed to do 8, 6mm holes with a fully charged 4ah battery.
