What are SDS Plus Drill Bits?

SDS is the abbreviated term for ‘Slotted Drive System’ meaning that SDS Plus drill bits have slots at the end of the shank which fit into the chuck of an SDS+ drill. SDS plus drill bits are used for drilling into hard materials such as brick and concrete with minimal effort. The SDS part refers to the shank type, which has two sets of grooves that snap into the chuck making it more secure and allowing the bit to slide up and down giving you the hammer action. The tip is made from strong tungsten carbide giving them extra strength and resistance to extreme loads.
