Rotary Hammer Drill Information


I just bought, but have not yet received, a Bosch 11236VS-Plus Rotary Hammer Drill.
Can someone explain if there is a difference in SDS and SDS-Plus?
What type bits do I need to purchase?

The short answer is, SDS and SDS-Plus are interchangeable, no difference.

The SDS-Max is a different shank style that will only use an SDS-Max bit. So, if in doubt, if your SDS drill does not indicate SDS-MAX on it, then it uses the SDS/Plus bits.

Correct, you have an SDS+ in the Bulldog, and you can use std. SDS if they even make them anymore.

SDS Max is completely different system with an 18mm shank vs. the 10mm shank of the SDS+.

The SDS+ bits are readily available and you shouldn't have a problem finding a large variety of bits & chisels.
