this makes the deal even better!!

Special Offer!: Save £69.99 when you add an additional battery (quote 81630) –Saving will be deducted from your order total before your card is charged (it won’t on the checkout total or confirmation email).

so £220 with 2 batteries!

excellent deal, but not sure i can justify for diy work....lol!!

Have you ever tried a Dewalt?

Just wondering, would you buy this for normal household works or is this only worth for skilled workers?
#5
Yep Dewalt are the best, but makita aren't too shabby either

Depends on your budget and what you're likely to be doing with it. If you're just going to be putting together flatpack furniture then yes it is overkill, but if your gonna need to be drilling into brick you should spend some money on decent kit with some power like this.

I also submitted a 'similar' spec same price Dewalt to gauge the consensus of opinion.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dewalt-xrp-dc988l1-18v-li-ion-cordl/754153?view=lastreadpost

Depends how much money you have and how much drilling and screwing you want to do.

i tend to use a corded one for drilling into masonary but then im only doing diy and simple stuff like putting up lights, drill through garage walls anyway...my bosch only cost me about £20 15 years ago lol.....still works and drills fine and used 100's of times....my 5 year old B&D cordless lasted about 12 drills and packed up...hopeless

I agree I tend to use my corded for masonary but my girlfriend bought my quite an expensive cordless black and decker a couple of years ago and to be honest it has no problem with brick and my corded gets used less and less these days.

actually my cordless is about 10 years old.....old tech tho....things have moved on....will get a new cordless soon though as need to put a shed on my allotment and i dont fancy doing that with my min B&D cordless (actually superb for pilot holes and basics) and manual rachet

Dewalt aren't as good as Makita IMHO..I have tried both and wouldn't go back to Dewalt. MOST tradesmen I know prefer Makita as well..

Are the blue Bosch Professional rage any good?
