But thanks.
They're good value at this price, but the Milwaukee link just misleads people. They are entirely seperate brands, just owned by the same group. Ryobi is also owned by them.
I'm a tradesman and have had an AEG combi drill and impact driver for years.ive now moved to Makita for the range of tools they do and keep my AEG as backup.they are so we'll put together and the batteries still hold they're charge even now.great tools

What is your problem Andy - the facts remain that AEG are owned by the same company that makes Milwaukee.

How is that misleading - it’s entirely relevant to the post.

You felt it necessary to whinge on a similar deal I posted earlier today and I sorted it - have a word with yourself.
I've had 2 AEG impact drivers in the last 4 years or so and they let me down... they were pretty good while they lasted though.
I could not find replacement carbon brushes.

It's not relevant at all! It's like explaining a Fiat as being built by the same firm that owns Ferrari! Mentioning Milwaukee is naturally going to lead to people drawing comparisons.

No it is not - AEG are a relatively unknown brand, the fact that both brands are they are owned by the same company that own Milwaukee should lend itself to AEG being a good quality product - Not the same obviously as the two brands are different with two completely different price brackets.

Hence it is relevant so that people who may never have heard of AEG can understand the traceability factor to the manufacturer and that should give some reassurance to the brand.

Hope this helps you understand and offers you closure.

They're certainly not an unknown brand! It's still an entirely seperate manufacturer to Milwaukee so you simply can't make comparisons of quality or anything else. The two brands don't share anything other than a head office. Like I said, it's misleading. I'm not taking anything away from your deal, it's a decent price.

Oh Andy what are we to do with you.

Ok search AEG right here on HUKD and check the stats.

Stats vs Bosch, Milwaukee, Dewalt, Hitachi, Panasonic, Einhell, etc etc etc.

If you do take the time you’ll see not many AEG posts for power tools and the ones that did get posted well how did they do in comparison to the other brands mentioned :/

I’m done here - we could go on but we’d be going around in circles, hope you can get your head around it though - peace out

I agree as my company makes good products but our parent company also owns other companies that make utter junk. However AEG drills do seem good as some of my colleagues use them but I wouldn’t know if they are as good, worse or better than Milwaukee.

What rubbish. AEG and Milwaulkee were originally both owned by Atlas Copco, with both products ranges designed in the same offices by the same engineers. I believe TTI has continued working in the same manner. What you've done is taken a stupid comparison in Ferrari (which is weird because Ferrari is longer part of FCA) and used it as the absolute gospel truth about the way these companies operate when we know for a fact that they are by far and away the exception, not the rule. A more apt comparison is the way that VAG cars often share the same engine and chassis designs. In fact, it has been verifiably shown that TTI use AEG as platform to test engineering that they then transfer into the Milwaukee range.

Don’t want to get into the argument but I read it that as ,just because a subsidiary company make good product then another subsidiary will be of equal quality, which is definitely not always the case. I didn’t know that they use AEG as a test bed for prototypes though but if they did release a bad product,to test on the public, they do seem to come with a decent warranty. However the deal is still good and Homebase have currently a lot of the power tools on offer . I only bought a small Ryobi blower yesterday, for cleaning equipment, for £27 which is wAy cheaper than anywhere else. I would certainly recommend going into Homebase to have a look if you’re in the market to purchase a power tool

Ahhh, the internet. That amazing place where anonymous people can hide behind a screen, making assumptions about other people based on a handful of comments they've read. Comments that perhaps they don't have the mental capacity to apply the correct context to.
You're missing the point. I'm purely trying to clear up part of the OP which is factually incorrect and potentially misleading to buyers. Stating that AEG is manufactured by the same company that owns Milwaukee (which it isn't, it's manufactured by a company that happens to be owned by the same group that owns Milwaukee) could easily lead people to believe that both products are manufactured to the same specification and are of similar quality, which in this instance is wrong.

No, OP is not "incorrect". You've, in an extremely simplistic way, seen that Milwaulkee and AEG are owned by TTI and decided internally "There's no way they have any connection! How could that ever be the case when Milwaulkee costs so much more?" despite not having any proof or evidence.

I've already stated the fact that AEG is used as a testing bed for engineering solutions that are later worked into Milwaulkee products. In fact, TTI started life purely as a manufacturing company and bought different brands merely to bring their products to market. All TTI products are made in the same factory, to the same tolerances. All their technologies are developed cooperatively.

No one ever tried to state they were of the exact same specification or quality, only you with your weird "Oh but I know better" ignorance.

Next time do some research rather than boring us with your self-assured pub talk BS.

You're an angry little fella aren't you! I don't really need to do any further research, part of my job is researching, testing and reporting on power tools. All TTI tools are certainly NOT made in the same factory as Milwaukee alone have factories in the USA, Europe and China. Get over yourself and stop trying to turn this into a personal argument.

Depends, for a bit more money you are getting more power ( battery & torque ) but then maybe the Ryobi is better if you plan to add additional tools at a later date but then there’s the cost element between the 2 brands on extra tools.

Personally I’d got with the AEG but at the end of the day it’s all down to what your expectations are.

Many Thanks for that. For me it's mainly DIY jobs but I seem to do a lot of them. Was thinking the AEG as well bu wasn't sure. I think the AEG is probably the way to go.

Perhaps re-read the 1.5ah comment then get back to me. I clearly stated that an 18v 1.5ah battery has the SAME POWER as an 18v 5.0ah battery, which it does. Searching through my previous comments, what a desperate, pathetic little soul you are.

I am the same. Lots of diy to do most weekends. I have just bought the brushless versions of these for slightly more. I would recommend them after using them both. The drill feels solid and has a nice weight to it. I think Aeg are deliberately pricing these low to get a foothold back into the UK market to take on DeWalt etc. I had Stanley Fatmax before these, which are very good diy tools but these feel a bit more serious to me. Offering a six year warranty also says a lot for the confidence they have in their own product.
Now that all the squabbling is over, can anyone tell me the model numbers please? I just discovered this deal directly on Homebase, as it's still available in some stores, and I'd like to be able to see some reviews on Youtube or wherever. Thanks to those who did give their own thoughts here.
This is the model I would recommend, after having used it (see link below). It is brushless. I also bought the dual kit shown in this post, from Homebase, as a back up set (which isn't brushless and is slightly less powerful). However, after putting it through its paces on some tough red brick walls I found that it kept slipping out of hammer mode down into normal drill mode. I had to hold the dial in place as I drilled to stop it slipping, which isn't good. It may just be a rogue drill I have bought but it does mean it has to go back. I will get another brushless version as a back up.

Let me know the link works ok....
