Type of drill for core drilling hole for tumble dryer

Postby HavingaTry » Thu Apr 01, 2021 5:35 am

Hi all, I have just moved house and looking to core drill a 100mm hole into an external wall to vent a tumble dryer (don't like the idea of sticking the tube out the window). I have a corded Ryobi RPD1010-K. Will this be up to the task or do I need to hire an SDS or just book someone to do it?

Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

Hi havingatry
You will burn out the Ryobi, hire a diamond core bit and drill but don’t forget to drill from the outside.
