Prob not the best for brick/ masonry OP - better checking out hammer drills.

Good deal for this though!

keep looking if you want to drill anything other than wood and plastic.

Oh really? I was hoping the 18v would maybe ne enough for a few drill holes on some brickwork.

Hmmm....I may need to do some more research.

The reviews seem generally positive on this product though and the price is reaally tempting me

It looks great for softer materials etc but with masonry you will prob find it will just spin with no or little penetration.

P.s remember to check your not drilling onto wires/ pipes etc.

Single gear only and that gear is ideal for driving rather than drilling hence all the supplied screwdriver bits and sockets. The drill bits supplied are for metal & wood and appear to be quite small which again shows they aren't really pushing the drilling aspect of this product.

Note the charger states 3-5hrs so is likely a manual charger requiring the user to make sure the battery is discharged before charging and optimally charged for 4hrs. You need to be the organised type who will ensure its correctly charged because there is only 1 battery and the capacity is the worst I've ever seen at 0.8Ah for an 18V drill.

Would not recommend this product at all really as it actually seems quite expensive for the specification. Anyone considering purchasing it should consider how much they need all those security screwdriver bits. The accessories included are quite generous but the drill is incredibly basic and limited.

Lithium-Ion alternative with far better battery from Maplin.

This is a really poor drill for masonry , For DIY buy a cheap corded drill it will last a lot longer and drill the holes a lot faster,
consider buying an sds drill for masonry

I'm not saying I'm recommending it but if £35 is your budget and no more this is worth considering.

Its got 2 gears, hammer mode, 1/2" full size chuck, 2 batteries and reasonable torque at 22Nm.

If you could I would stretch to £55 and get the axminster axion model. That ticks all the right boxes but the Argos one is better than the amazon and maplin models. The maplin model is li-ion though but the torque is quite low at 15Nm and has no hammer mode.

the axminster one looks decent!

designed for masonry screwfix.com/p/t…660

not cordless but will eat bricks for breakfast.

something else for less screwfix.com/p/t…908

you have to spend a lot for a good cordless masonry drill, for light use if you can use a cable a 240v is the best option.

I bought this 5 years ago when i moved into my new house and had to do a full refurb, screwfix.com/p/d…449

works well, about the min i would go for if you have to drill bricks, does a great job years down the link, shafts worn out and loose, can only do a few holes before swapping battery to the spare but i have made it pay for itself over and over!

its fitted a kitchen, bathroom, full rewire, fireplace, relaid flooring in several rooms and still keeps going.

only replaced with a bosch blue drilldriver and impact driver as i need something for work that doesn't lose charge if it sits for weeks on end.

If you want a versatile cordless drill for drilling, driving and light masonry work the Axminster model is by far the best deal I think. If you need a drill for serious masonry work then you don't want cordless.

I have this drill and I am very happy with it. Even though the battery is only 0.8 mah still got enough power for diy uses.
