Types of DeWalt SDS Rotary and Demolition Hammer
Also known as SDS+ drills, these compact power tools share many similarities with hammer drills but have a much faster, more powerful hammering action and can only be used with special SDS+ bits.
They come with either a pistol-grip or L-shaped handle and are suitable for tasks such as removing tiles, cutting channels for pipework, and light demolition.
See Introduction to DeWalt SDS-Plus drills for further information.
These are considerably larger than SDS+ drills and require their own, much bigger bits which are not compatible with any other drill.
Particularly popular among professional builders, plumbers and electricians, SDS-Max drills are designed for large volumes of heavy-duty work involving concrete and masonry.

Weighing in at around 10kg, demolition hammers are the big beasts of the hand-held drilling world.
Construction sites are their natural habitat, where their pounding hammer action makes them ideal for breaking up thick chunks of concrete, masonry and brickwork.
