Discuss Hilti drill just died. Do you have back up in the Plumbing Tools area at UKPlumbersForums.co.uk.
Use if for core drilling and sds. Do you guys have a back up drill. If so good or cheap
I tell you whats a little cracker , the screwfix titan one for around £70 , I borrowed one a while ago , ok its not a makita etc , but its powerful and does everything you want
Is this an ads then? Will it core 40mm holes?
I think someone said this a while ago on another thread.
Yep no bother at all , theres a couple cheaper , they are pretty powerful .
I like to have a back up drill, but for core drilling with a proper machine I am down to one drill at moment.
Your Hilti drill perhaps has brushes and they just need replaced. Might be a job you can do yourself. Try Hilti shop for spares.
my emergency ads drill myself, it’s not even a specific core drill.
Hope then that your emergency drill has a good operating clutch?
I have a faulty core drill I am hoping just the brushes are gone and drill is repairable.
So am down to just my Hilti hammer drill.
I actually drove past the hilti shop on way home so dropped it off for repair. It was also wobbling all over the place when drilling rather than a straight line so good to get it fixed.
The Titan one mentioned, is this the 3.5kg one the 6
Hilti do some sort of trade in deal if repairs are too expensive
So i bought the titan 3.5kg ads. To be honest I am very impressed for a cheap back up drill. Finished my 35mm core no problem.
Some more good news, Got a text saying my Hilti repaired drill will be delivered on Monday. I have not even paid yet!
there back up service is top notch might even get delivered by the rep if you havent seen him in a while
That’ll be nice. Might get a discount.
