    I am wondering whether to buy a cordless combi drill with a maximum torque of something like 130Nm or to buy the Erbauer ERH18-LI SDS Plus drill. Obviously it would be nice to own both but the budget does not stretch to that. I cannot see amongs the spec of the Erbauer SDS drill the max torque in rotary only mode.
    Which do you think would be capable of more torque: the combi drill at 130Nm or the Erbauer SDS drill?
    Thank you

    What job do you actually want to do, this will determine which drill is best for you.

    I have the ECDT18 cordless Combi and must say it blows me away. Such power from a cordless, its amazing. I only reach for my SDS (Titan corded 5kg) when I need to use it as a mini impact chisel.

    The drill is more than man enough to drill into any surface, great hammer function and huge torque power.

    I'll only buy the SDS if my Titan one packs up, but it would probably receive only occasional use as the Combi is my workhorse.

    If you intend to drill a lot of masonry, concrete or similar, get an SDS - they are superior for this task. If you intend to do a variety of jobs, big wood bits, metal, some masonry, get a combi - it does a COMBINATION of tasks very well, including driving fixings to a point and has a clutch in the chuck to limit torque. I own a cheapo Titan SDS, for when i need it, but it comes out a few times a decade. My combi is in constant use. I couldnt justify a lightweight SDS or a more expensive one as a simply dont drill much, or run long drills in to masonry.
