"I have had many cordless drills over the years from various manufacturers,
This Worx WX368.3 is without doubt the best so far, very easy to use chuck, well balanced,fantastic battery life, double spirit levels one on the top and one on the back make drilling accurately easy, i have used this as a hammer drill, as a screwdriver and as a normal drill and the power and torque of this drill make it a joy to use, you simply can't go wrong for the money.."

"This is a great drill all due to the battery. I've had many cordless drills but this is the first with Lion batteries. These batteries make the drill lighter to use, they do not lose their charge so the drill is always ready to use.
Drill is well made - feels strong and robust with nice features such as built in levels
Highly recommned"

"WORX DRILLS ARE SECOND TO NONE FOR QUALITY,DURABILITY AND VALUE.I ONLY BOUGHT THIS ONE BECAUSE MY LAST ONEA 14.4 CORDLESS FELL OFF A WALL ON TO CONCRETE AND BROKE THE FORWARD/REVERSE SELECTOR,OTHERWISE IT WAS WORKING AS GOOD AS WHEN NEW.I WOULD RECOMMEND WORX OVER BOSCH OR DE WALT ANY TIME."

"I purchased the Worx drill after my other drill gave up the ghost after a couple of years normal use.
this drill features everything from a decent hammer to a great torque settings
this is a super buy because it has 2 batteries, plenty of power & a 13mm chuck. It is a tad heavy but the outer gear casing is metal not plastic.
100mm wood screws just fly in with ease.
worx also give a 3 yrs warranty with normal usage.
I am so pleased with the drill & to be honest price wise its fantastic value"

pay a bit extra and get the Makita drill offer from b&q. much better machine to use and better built.Makita also comes with 3 year warranty if you register on line.

Well this is £22 less for those with less cash to spend.

£65 quid with a 3yr warranty? I'm not in the market for one but here's some heat OP

I've had one of these for about 18 months and it's handled everything thrown at it.

great drill. got it when it was last on offer at homebase. think it was about £50 then. but good price. heat added op

will this drill into brick?

majortom

will this drill into brick?



"With Lithium power, this drill is ready to use, with the punch to drill in masonry as well as wood, metal and plastics"

18V with hammer action should drill into brick easily.

can anyone tell me what it means by " Drilling capacity for wood 38mm, steel 13mm, masonry 16mm"?

Max width of drill bits.

For heavy duty drilling with wider drill bits, you should use a 230V mains drill...... Cordless drills have their limitations.

Don't know what it this drill is like, but I have a cordless Worx Strimmer and its been the best strimmer I've ever owned. Been through 5 summers work now, with seemingly no loss of battery power and works brilliantly.
So I would have some faith in buying this drill.

I also got this drill on the £50 homebase deal but its still in the box and not been used, are you happy with it?

Tempted by this. I know the Makita is a better buy but I don't have a B&Q near me so transport will jack up the cost. Plus I'm guessing they'll sell out. How's the driver on this?

The Fatmax has a very similar spec to this Worx and the B&Q Makita. All three are quite torquey and come with 2x 18V Lithium batteries. All three would be fine for high-end DIY (low-end trade) and there isn't much to choose between all 3 really. Arguably the Makita will have the best build quality (so would be my choice) but all three drills are slightly compromised by small capacity batteries (quite reasonable at this price point). All three are good deals though and there isn't a lot to choose between them on value when you take the small-ish price differences into account. I'd definitely go for the Makita deal (if you can get one!) over the similarly priced FatMax, or go for this Worx deal if you are watching the pennies. None are likely to disappoint though!

HTH and heat for this deal. It's a lot more drill for only a little more than the price of the typical DIY drill deals which come up here.

I own this drill too and have never had any problems with it - got it off my father in law for christmas and he's a joiner + jack off all trades so he obviously thought it was ok - or he hates me - i can never tell!

If people are looking for makita but can't get to b&q I have bought 3 off eBay from the same seller. Can't post as a deal as the seller doesn't have enough feedback. It's £1 more than b&q but is delivered to your door. I ordered one for myself and both my father and father-in-law were so impressed I've bought one for each of them. It's a great drill, perfect for what I need. He seems so repost new stock as soon as the last has gone

Great deal thanks OP, need a new cordless hammer drill, mine just died.

Heat!

Thanks. I think I might go for the Worx one as it will only get occasional quite light use. Will probably be using primarily as a driver so I may as well save the money.

very good price for lithium ion and two batteries. Hot

Great price.

Might be worth noting the difference in charge times if you have a lot of work to do:
Worx: 3 - 5 hours
FatMax: 1.5 hours
Makita: 1 hour (I think?)

Yes that is a good point. Would be an issue with just a single battery but since you get two with the Worx, it should be good enough for your every now and then DIY.

I have a number of the better make drills etc, but I needed an extra 'cheapie' so I bought this when it was on offer at Homebase at £49-00. It is an excellent drill & not worth paying extra for a 'better' drill, unless you pay a LOT extra.

I have one of these. On mine the Battery dies very quickly seem to be charging it for ever. Any tips?

Just my luck! I missed out on this at Homebase back in May, so thought I'd grab this offer. Checked my local store yesterday (Friday 25th) and they had stock, so I thought I'd leave it till Saturday to go and get one. Didn't make a reservation. Today I went to check the stock and the item number wasn't recognised. They'd changed to the new catalogue overnight and the drill is no longer in it. Can't find it in the clearance section either.

Reserved mine yday, excellent piece ov kit for a lithium drill and price. Also had a £5 argos voucher for spending over £50, that just sweetened the deal even more, I'm usually a makita or dewalt man but this does the job just as good for cheaper and a 3 year warranty

so you have both these drills in order to make these comments?

Vanished from the Argos website. Replaced by a similar model with NiCD batteries...

They are still doing them as I got one today but had to take it back due to missing parts, and then they issued me with another no problem so they must still be in stock

Thanks for the tip. I went to my local Argos and tapped the number into the stock checker. To my surprise it said they had one left, so I got it.

Was impressed that it worked straight out of the box, with plenty of power in the batteries. Not so impressed with the wobbly chuck, but then all drills in that price range seem to suffer from that.

I've find them in stock in different stores.
Not anymore online or new catalogue.
I will wait for the clearance promotion to get one.
