How does SDS plus drill work?
The’ Slotted Drive System’ means that SDS+ drill bits have slots that fit into the chuck of an SDS+ drill at the end of the shank. Such slots or indentations allow the bit to be forced forward by the drill’s hammer action, while the drill still maintains 2 sprung ball bearings in the drill bit’s slots. It varies from the traditional drill chuck system where the round drill bit is held by three sides.
3 modes of SDS Plus Hammer
This mode is common to most drill users, where the chuck rotates the drill bit and the bit bites into the material. Usable on soft or light materials only. In this mode, you can use regular drill bits with an SDS+ drill chuck adaptor.
Rotary with Hammer:
The piston inside the drill must push forward, driving the drill bit forward in response. This is the most commonly used mode when using an SDS+ drill as it achieves the desired target.
This is also referred to as the ‘ rotary pause ‘ or ‘ chisel ‘ mode. The drill’s rotary motion is turned off, and only the hammer action is applied. Inside the piston moves back and forth pushing the drill bit (usually a chisel or SDS+ point bit) back and forth, moving it back and forth into the material.
SDS+ drills operate on the basic platform where all rotary drills work, which ensures that a regular drill bit can be used to rotate the motion. Nevertheless, they need to use a chuck adapter to fit the drill bits. Now some SDS+ drills come with interchangeable chucks so you can easily use either standard or SDS+ bits.
