    Guys,

    I have been thinking to try some SDS plus 4 cutting bits(cross head).
    Everyday I install flashings and parapet caps into brick walls, masonry and concrete.
    I have been using Bosch Blue MultiConstruction(BlueGranite) round shank (the advantage of these bits is that they go EASILY through the sheet metal with not much pressure), and unfortunately they are not available as SDS Plus shank and I don’t want to use an adapter.
    So, I would like to try these type of bits…has anyone here used this kinda bit?
    Which brands are good and durable?
    The sizes I exclusively want are 1/4″ (6,3mm) and 5/16″ (8,0mm)

    Thanks!

    I am not sure I have seen the plus 4 bits in the stores but i do see them available on line in the SDS Plus shank.

    You can get them through Hilti , the pictures on the Bosch website are not good enough to see if Bosch has that option.

    I’ve used the Hilti version numerous times and they work great. I find they start holes MUCH better since they don’t want to wander around.

    I have a Hilti, a 7/16 I think. Give or take 1/16.
    I don’t know metal sheets but it goes in concrete very easily.
    OK, every other bit in my bag is Bosch. That’s the only foreigner 😀

    Hey William,

    Yes I have sir, and I do have a couple relevant things to mention why I like it so much.

    First things first, there are some people even tradesmen (I hesitate to say) who don’t know how an sds chuck works, an sds chuck works by sliding the bit in and out (crucial detail here).

    Using an SDS tool I will be dealing with DUST, in addition to that, I must take care a special about the chuck, cleaning it and lubricating it regularly.
    Otherwise I would not get the main action/benefit of the SDS chuck system, furthermore being useless the use of this type of tool and not getting the expected results.

    Secondly, using an SDS tool I DO NOT have to push it hard against what I’d be drilling through(gentle push only)

    Thirdly, super fast and easy way to remove and change drill bits, and NO MORE lost keys and toothless keyed chucks haha

    Anyway, at end of the day I got more productivity and less stress.
    Thanks!

    Hey Kyle, man Hilti does have VERY VERY impressive drill bits, extremely durable!
    What sizes do you normally use?

    All good Bill @theamcguy … don’t get me wrong I don’t want to appear a smartass…but its like this and most people don’t know.

    Good to know, I hate when they do slip

    Ok, the sheet metal is very thin…I do like Bosch drill bits.
