    Is this an ads then? Will it core 40mm holes?

    I think someone said this a while ago on another thread.

    I like to have a back up drill, but for core drilling with a proper machine I am down to one drill at moment.
    Your Hilti drill perhaps has brushes and they just need replaced. Might be a job you can do yourself. Try Hilti shop for spares.

    Hope then that your emergency drill has a good operating clutch? :)
    I have a faulty core drill I am hoping just the brushes are gone and drill is repairable.
    So am down to just my Hilti hammer drill.

    I actually drove past the hilti shop on way home so dropped it off for repair. It was also wobbling all over the place when drilling rather than a straight line so good to get it fixed.

    The Titan one mentioned, is this the 3.5kg one the 6

    Hilti do some sort of trade in deal if repairs are too expensive

    So i bought the titan 3.5kg ads. To be honest I am very impressed for a cheap back up drill. Finished my 35mm core no problem.

    Some more good news, Got a text saying my Hilti repaired drill will be delivered on Monday. I have not even paid yet!
