good deal, if take into account, that battery for this device cost around the same price.
Although I would bring my dead battery alive using other methods, spending less, but wasting more time. If any one interested check out this thread http://www.instructables.com/id/Bring-Dead-Ni-Cad-Batteries-Back-To-Life/ as mostly this drill's power pack made of sub-c ni-cd batteries

3 hour charger and only slow 700 rpm speed, too fast for screwdriving and too slow for drilling
get something with 0-400 and 0-1200 two gear machine

ni-cad batteries die, and when they die, bringing them back to life is about as likely as bringing back flared trousers and shillings and pence, the methods touted to fix them doesnt work at all

For a really good bargain, check out the 'site' branded drills at screwfix, can get 3 batteries and drill under 50 quid, and are rebadged makitas. no secret of this is made as they give you the makita number as support on their product page for this. prices for branded drills are now way over priced, seeing as they have been made in china for ages now, so the price is artificial, hence the deals on the 'site' drills.

Well as a basic drill for a third less than the site drills i thought this was pretty good tbh. If i had wanted to spend £50 and had a screwfix close by i would have probably got the site one but this was closer to my budget and i could go and get it today :thumbsup:

I agree it's not bad for a bosch brand, and in stock, but the 1 battery and 3 hour charge to me holds it back a lot. thank you for posting :thumbsup:
voting hot, as its better than buying a challenge brand at argos for the same money
