Not up to drilling brick, light duty only
on 5 October 2018
I bought this after reading some of the reviews describing it being able to drill into masonry and brick. I hope it would provide an alternative to a mains powered drill, especially when up a ladder. On arrival it was smaller than expected, smaller than a cordless drill I already had, but decided to give it a go to mount a security camera into domestic red brick with a new 6mm Bosch masonry bit. The drill and hammer mechanism just wasn't up to it, barely penetrating the surface. Even trying to use it with a 4mm bit for a pilot hole it couldn't hack it. Switched back to a mains drill with the same bit to get the job done. Now relegated to screw driving and wood/interior plasterboard work.
