What does SDS size mean?
A: In North America, it’s how power tool companies rate the tools. The larger the number, the more powerful the tool. The SDS Max tool holder is standardized, so any SDS Max bit will fit any SDS Max tool. The larger and deeper the hole, the larger the hammer you need.
What diameter is SDS?
The diameter of an SDS and SDS Plus shank is 10 millimeters. (The SDS Max is 18 millimeters. The SDS Quick is 6 mm.) The SDS shank has the advantage of fitting into a simple spring-loaded chuck, so that bits are simply pushed into the chuck without tightening.
What size do SDS bits come in?
The shortest SDS-plus masonry drill bits are about 110 mm overall length, and the longest 1500 mm. SDS-max is more common for larger rotary hammers and chipping guns, and common sizes start at 1⁄2 inch (13 mm) diameter up to 1 3⁄4 inches (44 mm) diameter. Standard lengths are 12 to 21 inches (300 to 530 mm).

What is SDS Plus drill bit?
SDS Plus have a 10mm shank, while the SDS Max has an 18mm. This means that SDS Max bits have an increased capability for tougher masonry work, withstanding more torque and force. The SDS Plus range is shorter in length and is tailored to lighter duty work and smaller diameter holes.
Can I use a SDS drill bit in a hammer drill?
