Hey members, im glad to have made the move into the electrical industry and am glad to have joined this community.

Just like to start off ive been in the trade for 5 months and have got plenty of hand tools.

Im now after my cordless drill setup and need some advice!

I am well aware of the major brands for cordless tools.. Dewalt, Makita, Hitachi, Millewaukee, AEG and the like.

One of the factors i am considering is not only the drill/driver/hammer but also a compatable rotary hammer.

I do like the new Hitachi 18v Lion drill/hammer but the Rotary hammer you can get with it is just a little light duty. it feels small and a bit "plastic" made.

Im also very keen on the BHP451 makita and with it the 240 rotary hammer.

Id like to steer away from dewalt nano cos i dont know enough about them.
Please feel free to share your experiences with these tools

Many thanks

Welcome to the forum. I use the Milwaukee (SDS)18v rotary hammer almost daily, it is great for holes up to 3/8", anything bigger I break out the Bosch corded Bulldog or larger hammer.
