Default SDS MAX Bits

Just curious what brands people have had the best luck with.

I'm not even going to waste my time looking at off-brand drill bits because I'm certain the carbide tip will come flying off after a couple of uses. I am wondering about regular chisels though. Am I better off just sticking with name brand stuff all around, or is a chisel a chisel?

I use the splined drill bits and the chisels with the notch, I try to buy bosch brand, but now they are all made in china, the chisels hold up decent from no name brand..they are cheap enough not to worry about..

Depends if you are going to use it a lot. I bought a princess auto chipper. It's a beast and breaks concrete easily. The 2 chisel came with it and that's what I use. It might be used only a couple times a year.

This job here I wanted to try it out and it was overkill, less than 2 minutes to break this off.

We have a 60lb Bosch jackhammer and more Bosch Bulldog rotary hammers than I can count. SDS shank for the Bulldogs, we don't have an intermediary chipping hammer for the SDS Max shank.
