Its not a bad price but does anyone really want a 12V driver & a percussion drill?

I just guess its not suited to a majority of people.

Percussion drills are cheap but are good at what they do but give me a hammer drill that you can switch off hammer mode all day long.

Also unless its small & fiddly an 18V drill with driver bits does the job & you can also make the hole.

So for me the answer is an 18V combi drill with 2 batteries for the same money ish because I dont do small fiddly screwdriving & sometimes want to put bigger holes in brick & if my 18V wont do it I have a 240V Ryobi SDS hammer drill with a keyed chuck & adapter as a backup.

^ That doesn't make any sense.

You can switch hammer action off on this drill. Looks like a good combo for most DIY work. Use the mains powered drill for drilling masonry, pilot holes in wood etc, and then use cordless with a screwdriver bit. 12V cordless drills are easy to get in tight spaces like kitchen cupboards. There's no point in having a big cordless drill unless you don't have access to mains supply and need it for heavy duty drilling.I think this combo is suited for most people!

I ve got one of one these sets, very useful but have to agree with the above I brought a 18V dewalt aswell which I use more. I paid this price from screwfix 3-4 years ago and the drills are still going.

The point is you can get one drill to do both jobs & more for the same money.

My 18V drill does the job of both of these & so does my 240V. Both were bought individually for less money. In fact my SDS Ryobi can put a 110mm core through a brick wall if you want to take it slow to save you losing your wrists. Then you can slip in a quick release chuck to drill a 2mm pilot hole. Its heavier but it does both jobs & more.

These tools are for people who need them on a regular basis. Carpenters/Cabinet makers for example. They are for accuracy & weight for constant use not for general DIY or most other trades.

Drilling 2mm pilot holes with an SDS drill? Now you are just being silly!

oO

(and core drilling on something without a clutch isn't very sensible either)

What is silly about it?
I have a chuck adapter & a keyed & a keyless chuck. The speed is variable. Its no different from using any other drill apart from the weight. If you are not doing it all day its fine. In fact it saves time mucking about with different drills, which is the point.

As for the 110mm core, like I said, if you take it slow you will not lose your wrists. Or you could buy yourself a £300 drill with a clutch for one hole. (_;)

Heavy .... AND even longer with a chuck adaptor and chuck in it! It's much easier to accurately drill with something small and lightweight. What you are doing sounds like a really cumbersome set-up.

If you are drilling 110mm cores with a clutchless Ryobi you'll be in the market for a new drill sometime very soon. :p

Precisely.

For most people there are cheaper & more useful alternatives for these drills & for one off jobs they are totally impractical but both more of a specialist items.

12V drivers do not have the power to do much (for example replacing a fence panel that has blown down in the wind) & a percussion drill is rubbish unless you hang pictures or build furniture for a living. X)
