Good deal; paid £80 for this at B&Q at the weekend including 20% off! Have some heat.
#2
Tempted.
#3
And you can still get ipoints for Screwfix - 4 points/£, hence 1.33 pence/£ back in high street vouchers (3000 ipoints = £10 voucher).

Does anyone know what the criterion is for being sent Screwfix discount codes? My e-mails from Screwfix stopped having codes in the header several months ago, but some of you appear to still be getting them.
#4
Is this actually the same package as the B&Q deal? I did glance at the drill in B&Q and thought the batteries were physically quite large - larger than the 1.3Ah ones quoted for this Screwfix offer would be.
#5
plus 2 x 18V Batteries, good deal
#6
Can anyone tell me where you enter the offer code as I can't find it!!
#7
In answer to a couple of these postts ... If you Google ' Screwfix Vouchers or discount codes' several sites pop up with the latest ones. The discount code should be added as you check out. There is a box that says 'Special instructions' and ' If you have a voucher enter it here'. Also I did notice the B&Q offer DID have the same 1.3Ah batteries.Makita also do a 2.6Ah with 3 batteries but these drills are still £299. Remember these are NiCad and are a little on the bulky side.

Ordered:thumbsup:

B&Q own Screwfix so it is proably the same drill / battery package. Still a saving is a saving!
#10
I put code in where it said special instructions and i was still charged £79.99

#12
I've ordered from them in the past and although it still has the full price at checkout - when it got delivered the discount had been taken off...

Thanks will risk it then, looks like easy returns if theres a problem anyway.
:thumbsup:
#14
Where do you add the code? i'm through to payment details now and i cant see the option?
#15
Just seen this in their instructions :

Instructions:

Online: Enter your Unique Offer Code in the special instruction box when you reach the check order details screen.
The saving will be deducted from your order total before your card is charged
(it will not show on the checkout total or confirmation email)

I was hoping for some advice if anyone can help.

FIrstly, do these babies give them same power as a drill plugged into the mains, or do they start running out after 10 minutes of use.

Secondly, are these batteries a long term option? If was gonna invest in a drill, I would want it to last the next number of years. I don't want something where the battery starts playing up after 18 months because it won't hold its charge

Finally, is there an option to plug these drills into the wall if there is a socket handy.

Any responses greatly appreciated and reputation left

"Use it all day long at work charge lasts lot's longer than DeWalt equivalent. Balance is great and lots of functions for every job."

And on that basis I have ordered one. Thanks to the poster and heat added.

I doubt any cordless drill out there could give the same power as a mains powered one. However, they don't run out after ten minutes of use (unless you did not release the trigger for a full 10 minutes perhaps). However, they easily have enough power to do most of the jobs any normal person would need to do.

I reckon the batteries should last quite a while. Depends how much you use them and how often you charge them. My last 18v drill needed new batteries after 7 years.

There is no option to plug these into mains that I know of unless you want to rig up a diy option.

I've used these codes (off this site mostly) loads of times, your confirmation email will have the full price on but I've never not been given the discount when the invoice comes in the box. Odd system but works for me!

As the charge time is only 30 minutes on the batteries, you should find in normal use that a battery will charge faster than you run-down the other. The power won't match that of a plug in drill - in doing up my house I've only turned back to a plug in drill for things like drilling holes all the way through the wall and mixing concrete in a big bucket. My 18V has sufficed for everything else.

My first 18V was a black and decker with nicads and lasted about three years of torture, before the batteries wouldn't hold a charge, the motor went and the chuck wouldn't hold tight. I'm now on an Lion drill. The batteries charge just as fast and are the same weight, but last easily twice as long. The drill is also stronger with more torque. Lion does however cost more...

Just ordered one, my last one died about a week ago (cheap one), had decided to go for a decent make, and as if by magic, this offer appeared, many thanks

Probably a very stupid question, but can these be used as electronic screwdrivers too?

Not stupid at all. From reading the reviews on the website, I think it can. But I'd like someone to confirm it on this website if possible

Yeah they can be used as electric screwdrivers, they have three mode settings (Hammer Drill, Screwdriver, Drill). And a range of different torque settings (1-12/16) so you don't over tighten the screws or strip the heads. I bought mine from B&Q last week and it's a great drill. It has a little double ended screw driver attachment with a philips and flat head in the box (mine did anyway).

YES you can screw with this drill!

Edit: AR beat me to it above..! The only hold-back with drill/drivers is that you can't easily get them into tight situations due to their bulk. But then you can just go back to the old-fashioned acoustic version (as opposed to this electric one).
#30
these are great for round the house but if you plan to use them for anything more serious you should look at getting the 2.6amp (black) battery version,more expensive but worth it.Own both the 1.3 and 2.6amp battery versions of the drill and they wont let you down - miles better than a dewalt.Great price for someone doing d.i.y

Screwfix are pants , my order hasn't been processed & there is no way to cancel online . Their stupid system should show the discount on the checkout so you know if you are receiving it or not , bloody bonkers way of doing things .

Rant over

#37
I just received an email similar to wolvesinwales showing they have given me the 10% off, so voucher is still working

This is almost certainly right as I've just recieved the e-mail with this drill in and a voucher code for 10% off, same conditions as usual, 10% off everything even if already reduced. As other's have said it doesn't show until the invoice.

Personally I'm looking at paying the £100 extra for the bosch 18V cordless hammer drill with three lihium ion batteries (quote: 51221), a massive £270 but with the trade in offer it goes to a more reasonable £170 and may still get the 10% as well :whistling:
