Voted hot and thank you, but people may wish to consider the 650 model which is on sale today at Argos , this has a bigger chuck size and is more powerful than this for another £7 or so its well worth the extra, however if its just for light work this model is fine.

I agree the chuck size and limited power may be a problem even for the occasional DIYer - the odd time you need it you may find it wanting, which happened to my mate who had this model as it wouldn't even take the drill bit.

Good price TiyRi, thanks for sharing

Thanks Papag, ill take a look there.

Got the 680 one from B&Q for £35 earlier this week

By comparison Draper 20498 600W 230V Hammer Drill was going for 21.99 on Amazon lightning deals probably be repeated

Good drill!

Do you not have any problems with the chuck jamming on these keyless drills? I need a mains drill so I stop nicking my Dad's, but lots of "issues" with keyless ones in reviews on amazon etc.

Woo flamedeer! X)

Is there good deal on cordless hammer drill?

Must resist...since I hit my mid 30s I can't stop buying tools

I had to return two of these to get one with a chuck that wasn't badly off-centre. I realise it's a hand-held drill, but I couldn't hold onto the first one it shook so badly.

Re - shaking its most probably the drill bit even a minute deviation (thats not visible) to the naked eye in straightness which easily occurs in use will result it the drill shaking.

Never ever had an issue with bosch tools. Most stuff (tools) i buy is usually bosch.

Do the drilling capacities seem a bit low for a mains powered drill? I've seen cordless with greater capacities.

Not a bad drill for the money

Is this a 10mm chuck? If so, still not a bad price for a cheap corded drill. Probably better to get this than a cordless for the same price!

Not without a drill bit in it, no. And the third one was fine.

Ok must have been a fault then, not heard of this before just looked at reviews on the site most give 4/5 stars no mention of shaking you must be unlucky

Yes. I would say it's not really worth buying, although I've given heat for the price.
