What is an SDS drill?
An SDS drill is a drill with more power than a traditional rotary or hammer drill and is used to drill through concrete, brickwork, block, steel and other hard materials. The SDS on an SDS drill stands for “Slotted Drive System”, “Slotted Drive Shaft” or “Special Direct System” and comes from the german German phrase ‘steck, dreh, sitzt’ that translates as ‘insert, twist, fits’. Essentially, this notation describes the way that the SDS chucks and SDS drill bits work together to produce the extra torque and force and torque required to drill through these harder materials. There are 3 modes on an SDS drill and include rotary, rotary with hammer and hammer only, all of which have their own unique purposes.
