The group's opinion of the Ferm 5kg hammer at £40 from Screwfix seems
generally favourable, but I've just seen a pneumatic hammer in the Excel
range from Homebase. It's 850W as against the Ferm's 620W and it's only £50.
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this, or of that range
generally? It's something that I would use only occassionally so would save
the cost of hire.
Wattage is not a big issue for these sds drills. They tend to have lower
speeds than conventional drills too.
Blows per minute is usually the one to look for.
I think the Homebase tools are just re-badged Nu-Tools, as are many of the
tools at this end of the market.And for occasional use any of them would be
fine. All things considered, the cheapest which comes with the most
accessories is the one to buy.
