Tesco 500w Impact Drill £6.66 @ Tesco *instore*

Just bought one of these for and didn't expect it to be up to much but upon opening it up found it to be of suprisingly good quality! How wrong can you go for £6.66!!! I think this is available only in store.

This 500W corded impact drill & driver has an operating speed of up to 2800rpm and features a keyed chuck. This drill and driver has reverse action and comes with a side handle & depth gauge along with 5 drill bits.

seems cheap for what it is so I can't understand all the negs. You will get a year to take it back if it breaks (which it probably will)

+1

will the cold voters find an alternative drill brand new with a years warranty for around the same price....?

IF I was needing a corded drill, I wouldn't hesitate in buying it, I wouldn't expect it to last forever, lasting the length of the warranty (1 year) would suffice.

I would be surprised if this didn't produce better results than a cordless drill costing
10x the price (or more).

Is there a difference between a hammer drill and an 'impact drill' would this be less powerful?

Hot anyway...

You are assuming that of course, the lack of smileys tells me it wasn't.
#10
Oh dear god... what a great offer. I hate cheap cordless ones, and I REALLY needed a drill right now.

Got it delivered to the coatbridge store for £9.99 all in. Great, considering I was gonna spend £30 on a crappy one yesterday, but ummed and erred about it.

I don't know, corded drill's can last for ages, there is really not a lot to go wrong. We still have my granddad's drill somewhere, its 50 years old and still going strong!

As far as I know an Impact Drill is more commonly used for screw in bolts, a Hammer Drill is used for drilling holes in stone.

I think Tesco have the description wrong on this one becuase this one only has 1 torque setting, an Impact Drill used for screw bolts requires a high torque rating.

May be wrong of course......

For your average DIYer needing to drill a hole in masonry once in a blue moon, yes this should last for years.

Looking after it by buying decent drill bits go a long way to prolonging the lifetime, a thing your average DIYer doesn't do unfortunately, they buy cheap crap bits and wonder why there drills' motor is working overtime and burns itself out

The drill bits that come free with this I would throw in the bin, or give them to someone you don't like, i.e. the cousin/brother-in-law etc that borrows all your tools....:w00t:
#16
This is a beast of a deal :)
#17
Anybody else found this deal?
#18
Yep, loads of them in the Potters Bar store. Also had a cordless version for £19:99 IIRC.

Where do exactly doTesco sell tools? There are 4 in my local area, non sell such items????
#21
Really good deal, even if it lasts enough time to stick a few shelves up it has paid for itself. Though I expect it would last a lot longer if take care of. Not too mention that say two or three? of these would last longer than a low end drill from the "respected" manufactures and they would cost a lot more than three of these babies.

But at this price we aint got any excuses not to do all the odd jobs the missus wants doing :P

maybe it is £9.99 but someone was looking at it upside down

My local one doesn't either normally but they were all stuck on the end of a 'seasonal' aisle. Loads of different types from the aforementioned £6:66 up to £100.

I doubt that this drill will last very long without developing irreparable faults but, used sensibly, it will probably prove worth the modest cost. I have no idea why it is called an 'impact drill' as this implies a hammer action for masonry drilling. The description suggests that it is only a single-speed drill suitable for drilling wood, plastics, metal etc, and not for screwdriving (but why the reverse action?). The drill bits supplied are probably not good quality but (as with any bits) can and should be reground to keep a good cutting edge - not difficult to do by eye with a little practice.
#25
Is the Tescos Drill even worth £6.66
;-)
#26
voted cold as the drill will probably die within 3 months of excessive use
#27
its 6.66. What are you expecting - A Ferrari based model. It serves its purpose -drilling holes in to things. Obviously not made for the professional diy-er.

So £2 a month, not bad for " excessive use ", and it will still be under warranty.:roll:

Voted HOT.
#29
The impact drill box says it's suitable for wood and metal but also has a hammer function for masonry. They're also selling a cordless version for £7:99 which is suitable for wood and metal only, and a cordless hammer drill made by Power Force for £19:99. They're also selling sanders and jig-saws for under a tenner.

Not worth the hastle going back to the store. Petrol isn't exactly cheap.
#33
Why even bother commenting Majnu? The energy it took you to type must be very expensive to replenish...
#34
I had the Morrisons version of this one, which cost about £9.99 7 years ago. I used it around the house for all kinds of jobs before passing it on to a friend who is still using it.

Looks like a good buy for the average renter/student/newlywed :thumbsup:
#35
Not bad, I use similar one to mix up plaster as it has variable speed.
#36
Wife got one of these for me - she noticed that there were two versions - a 500W and a 600W - the packaging looks pretty similiar, 500W just says IMPACT DRILL like the picture above, the 600W says CORDED IMPACT DRILL.
