oh man! This is a super hot deal! i recently got the dewalt 2 battery hammer/drill deal with nicads at the same price @BQ, ...... can i exchange it to this after 2 months?! :p
#2
It 's searingly hot... I've been flip-flopping between a bosch li-ion with 1 battery and a makita ni-cd with a spare battery for a few days now... both around £100. Then this came up - best of both worlds really.
#3
Very very hot. I paid much more for a DV14 18 months ago, and that was a bargain then, so this is scorchingly hot. I'm almost tempted to buy this and keep the other as a spare. NO NO NO, no more power tools!
#4
Heat & Rep Added!

Excellent deal, just bought 2 from my local B&Q :thumbsup:

Just out of interest, these were still being advertised at £199.99, but scanned through at £99.99... so may be a misprice, should snap them up before they notice! :whistling:
#5
At my B&Q they were clearly marked at 1/2 price - so sounds like they've just been a bit slack putting the prices out where you are.
#6
Mods why has this expired? :?

Could well be! There were signs saying 1/2 price on selected power tools, but none refferring to this particular drill.
#8
Yeah - what's with the expired??? There was a whole pile of them at my local.
#9
cant see why these aren't hotter. I know people who've paid £200 for the 14v one
#10
I suppose cordless drills don't float everybody's boat... but I agree. Maybe people see the cheaper 12V drills and wonder why it's worth paying more - but if you know a little bit about drills, you should know this is an excellent deal, I'm dead chuffed with mine!
#11
:This is an excellent deal. Thanks for the post. Bought 1 from Reading B&Q for 84.98 1ith the 15% voucher.
This isn't a misprice as someone was suggesting.

Just out of interest, I didn't get a tool bag with mine... just a black plastic case. Did you guys actually get a tool bag?
#13
I assumed that referred to the black plastic case.. sorry - I copied the description from somewhere else... it's a bit missleading. I'll amend the post.

;-) cheers, just thought I might have missed out on a nice toolbag!!
#15
Thanks for the post, just picked one up, please note that the 15% voucher is only valid until today 30th Jan 2010.

There were still two left on the shelf at romford, all were still marked up at £199.99, but scanned at £99.99.

Thanks again OP, nice find, wondering why its not rated hot though.

The only problem i have with it......THE SIZE OF THE PLASTIC CASE!!!

I opened it to find half the case empty even with the charger, 2 x batteries & drill intact, why is the box so HUGE??

You'll probably find they use the same case for a variety of tools and multi-tool sets, with a varying number of batteries.

[COLOR="Blue"][SIZE="4"]I tried to reserve on at one store and the chap there had ordered more has he'd seen online at £99.99. Tried another store and they were still listed at £129.99 as they are online, am I missing something?[/SIZE][/COLOR]

Rang my local store in Chelmsford this morning. They were still priced at £199 on the shelf. The guy scanned one and it come out at £99.99. I got him to reserve me one.
When I went to collect later there were loads, moved to the front of an isle marked down to £99.99.
Used my 15% voucher and so got it for the £84 mentioned here.
My first largest buy from Hotukdeals, thanks everyone.

I don't think this model is on line. There are several similar models. The £129 is a slightly different with 1.4mAH Ni cad batteries. Not as good.
#23
this model is a promotional model and are at the front of the tool section in my local bnq, as i think they will be everywhere else. also the voucher can be used against reduced items, just not against any other discount cards or vouchers.
#24
I read the T&Cs on the voucher as saying that items that were reduced in-store were excluded... I assumed this meant clearance items that had been manually marked down. I've used the same voucher for a couple of things now with no problem.
#25
Not knowing much about drills but Hitachi? Never knew they made drills, are they any good?
#26
Sorted, reserved one!
#27
just picked one up ...A whole shelf full at Telford B & Q
#28
Grabbed one from Derby Osmaston. Had about 15 of them in store.
#29
Got one from Chingford, they had half a dozen left, none in Tottenham Hale.

Yes, ours get a lot of use and are always up to the job. The only downer is these batteries are only 1.5ah as opposed to 3.0ah, but at this price you can't complain.
#31
In b&q now, there's an 18v Matika drill with 2 batteries at £99 reduced from £199 too!

It has ni-cad 1.5 batteries? Help!
#32
just been and picked one of these up, about 15 of them in Huddersfield BnQ, 15% discount worked all fine
#33

In my opinion , yes. My 14v one is superb. Powerful, controllable and strong.

I have some other Hitachi power tools and they are all good. Whilst I don't have any other "quality" brand cordless drill, I do have a nice Makita jigsaw and compared I think the Hitachi tools are better quality, if only marginally.

IMHO I think you are better of with the Ion batteries. They do not have the "memory" problems that Ni-cads have and should last longer.

Thanks, i'll take this into account.

The Makita one was this one http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/573914/makita-8391dwpe-18v-combi-drill-wit it doesn't feel very good quality.

Think it's a 'cheaper' style Makita drill.

Anyone have any other opinions? I wanted to get the Hitachi but spoke to my Dad who just banged on that Makita was the better make?
#36
Here's how they look instore, have to make up my mind and go back!

That's one hell of a deal, been waiting for a decent 18V cordless. Bought three for family.
#38
Just got one from the Washington branch, voucher worked. (had about 10 left)
Excellent deal :thumbsup:
#39
makitas used to be the dogs proverbials but since production shifted to china i dont feel theyre in same class.as for hitachi never heard bad thing abt them!
#40
Can you explain why these are better than a £40 one from Aldi with 2 batteries?
Im not being smart A** do they have more torque or last longer?
My cheap aldi one can do wood and screws can this whizz though concrete and replace my wired 10 year old bosch drill?
