[IKEA] IKEA fixa hammer drill cordless Coquitlam $20 now - down from $65

Found this little hammer drill/ drill on clearance at IKEA Coquitlam. Not sure if other locations are clearing this out. Was $65 now $20.
I have no clue if it's a decent drill but for the price I'm giving it a go.

A pretty good review for a similar IKEA drill

I believe there was a thread a couple months ago discussing this drill.
Think of it in context of Ikea furniture. Looks good, but not built to last. If you plan on drilling more than half a dozen holes, buy a real hammer drill, then sell it as "almost new".
From an environmental standpoint, I think this a a terrible tool.

I agree. If you need it for more than a couple of holes then either buy a real one or rent one; you could even upgrade to renting a rotary hammer.

This is the old thread, if anyone was curious: ikea-sds-hammer-drill-home-use-etobicok ... y-2106332/

That thread also included this video of the actual drill in question:

Honestly, for any project that requires heavy duty tools the best options are almost always to rent, or to buy on craiglist, use, and sell on craigslist.

Rotary hammers, FTW!
I recently bit the bullet and bought a Bosch rotary hammer drill, and the first time I used it, I had to ask myself why was I dicking around with a regular hammer drill? It was to the point where I apotheosized to friends and neighbours.

I hate to sound like an ass but just buy/borrow/rent or steal an SDS drill. Night and day between SDS and non-SDS for concrete.

The price for a real hammer drill is pretty nice. How about it compared to the Ryobi hammer drill?
