The Black and Decker HP188F3B is a heavy duty DIY cordless hammer drill/driver that normally retails for around £100. It is 18V, has 42Nm of torque, has two battery packs, and comes in a decent carry case. With a little effort you can get it for just £50.99 (i.e. almost half price) from B&Q provided you're quick! Here's how....

1) At the moment Argos have this on offer for £66.65. It is £99.99 at B&Q, so go to Customer Service and tell them this. Their price promise means they will not just match the Argos price but also beat it by 10% (note this is not 10% of the difference - they will match a competitor price and then take 10% off that price). This takes the price down to £59.99 (£66.65 - £6.66).

2) Give them the current 15% off voucher which expires tomorrow night (see linked vouchers for an image to print out). This takes the price down to £50.99 (£59.99 - £9.00).

I did this earlier today and was surprised with the ease with which this was all possible; i.e. they accepted the 15% off voucher without any quibble. The voucher itself lists certain exclusions, but price matching is NOT listed as an exclusion.

IN EFFECT IT MEANS THAT YOU CAN GET B&Q TO SELL YOU SOMETHING 23.5% LOWER THAN A CHEAPER LOCAL COMPETITOR.

it begs the question; Is this a better drill than the ryobi one that B&q have at half price?
#3
They're about as good as each other.

Personally i'd go for the Ryobi.

They're both ****, get yourself a DeWalt for about 300 quid.

42 n/m of torque is very good. A 12v Dewalt for over £100 is the same output.
(an 18v Dewalt is more torque though). Many cheap brands do not quote the torque - you'll guess why.
This is more than enough to shear off a 10 gauge screw if you want to.
With two batteries ~at this price ~ this a very good deal IMHO. HOT

do you practice at bing an a*shole or does it come natural. i can see why its mostly the same cr*p posted on here all the time ps3/wii/ds games tvs/dvds (yes the same stuff but maybe afew pence or the odd £ cheaper) this time last year there was loads of different stuff. but people are to worried about posting because all people do is take the p*ss. remember the saying if you aint got nothing constructive 2 say shut the **** *p.

wassa matter daddy. maybe when you grow up HUKD will let you be a mod and you can spout self righteous bull all day long! in the meantime...oh, i cant be arsed....


@mozzer thanks for posting something informative about drills that will help me choose between the two.

Wow, there's a few hanbags flying in this thread, lol.

Fact is, both drills are the cheap end of the market for a reason. They're ok for occasional diy but you can do hell of a lot better.

Fact is, Dewalt make Black and Decker. Dewalt tools are professionals, Black and Decker are for wannabe's.

Not a bad price? Not a good price and definately a ver average quality of Drilll. Nice Christmas box for you gran though.
