An SDS-Max drill bit can only be used with an SDS-Max hammer drill.
An SDS-Max drill functions the same as an SDS-Plus drill, except it's more powerful and designed for the heaviest masonry work. It performs 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. When using a standard masonry bit, the whole chuck has to be moved to create the hammer action. With an SDS-Max 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-Max bits 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!
We also have a great range of SDS-Max chisels which might be better suited to your needs.
