What is SDS?

When using standard masonry bits and chisels, the whole chuck has to be moved to create the hammer action. With an SDS shank, the bit moves backwards and forwards inside the chuck to add to the hammer action. This means that the bit can be hammered much harder with less effort from the user, making it easier to work with tougher materials.

SDS-Plus accessories can only be used with SDS-Plus hammer drills, and SDS-Max accessories can only be used with SDS-Max hammer drills and breakers. Both tools function the same by performing a hammering action that's delivered by a pneumatic hammer which physically strikes the back of the bit to hammer it in to the material. The only difference between the two is that SDS-Max tools are more powerful and designed for the heaviest masonry and demolition work. As a result, SDS-Max hammers are bigger and heavier (over 5kg) than SDS-Plus hammers (up to 4kg).

SDS accessories can be changed without the use of tools. Simply push the bit in to the chuck and it locks automatically, then pull a release ring or push a button to remove it again!
