This is a mega deal. Great spot. That's me a 1er lighter
Thanks for the post, wasn't particularly interested until I read about the impact driver and 6 year warranty.
Can this be used to drill on concrete?

Can this be used to drill on concrete?


Yes it can just remember to use decent drill bits and not cheap rubbish.
If it’s main use is for brick & concrete drilling though you might want to have a look out for an SDS drill rather then a combi drill, the combi will do it but an SDS drill will do it a lot easier and quicker plus you can get larger bits.
Fantastic! That’s made my weekend, I’ve got a few holes to put in a few walls next week.
Amazing price wish I needed it!

Angle grinder looks a decent price too
I'm in the market for a decent drill with two batteries (just light DIY usage). Had 100 quid set aside. Am I likely to find a better deal if I wait or should I jump on this.?

Honestly and truthfully I doubt it.
I don’t work for HUKD and I don’t post crap either.
I’m always on the look out for DIY deals in particular, sometimes I spot things which I think are worth posting and sometimes the opposite ( only to see somebody else post it and it go’s barmy hot ) but that’s down to opinion.

This is a good deal - I use Bosch pro myself but make no mistake if it wasn’t for the fact I already own an array of different power tools some at the lower end ( Screwfix & B&Qs brands which have served me well for the jobs intended ) I’d be all over this deal.

It’s up to you, there’s a Bosch pro deal on here from Wolsey from memory - great drill but lower amp battery’s

Both Bosch and AEG are respectable brands so it’s all down to whichever you think is best.

Hope this helps in whatever you decide to buy.

AEG all day long! AEG used to have a much bigger involvement in the UK, 20/25 years ago but got taken over and the UK wasn't a focus of the new company. So the name started to dissappear hence why its not as well known over here any more. But it seems to be returning at a lower price then normal to grow the brand again. These AEG tools are called ridgid in North America, and it is probably the tool brand of choice over there along with makita, I own 7 different cordless AEG power tools (trim router, planer, angle grinder to name a few) and I am an extreme diyer/maker they perform faultlessly and, they come with a 6 year extended warranty. IMHO Dewalt is a good brand, but over hyped by a bigger profile in the UK.

It could be used for screwing in screws yes, but no Combi Drill will perform as well as a good impact driver

For drilling use drill.
For screwing in screws use impact, nothing is better.

Today AEG is not the same brand as it use to be. It was bought by chinese TTI and is medium level brand after Ryobi and before Milwaukee. Don't forget that you always get what you paid for.

This I know, but having used and spent a lot of money on ryobi tools, I'd say AEG tools are far better
Edited by: "Harry.the.hat" 20th Jan
They are indeed. Same with Black&Decker and DeWalt from one company.
With this impact it is briliant set for start building a toolbox.

What I was trying to say is according TTI nomencalture:
Ryobi - DIY tools
AEG/Ridgid - medium and heavy duty tools
Milwaukee - heavy and industrial duty tools

You can easily set them in order based on the price.

Thanks for the info.

I've actually decided to get a cheap corded drill instead. I already have a cordless driver and always forget to charge the battery before I need to use. Just thinking, given how infrequently I'll be using it, that it'll be quicker to dig out my extension cable than charge the battery.
Great deal. Have just had one delivered and it seems a well made and solid bit if kit. However, be aware that the extended warranty of 6 years only applies if it is bought from Homebase. I was made aware of this by AEG when I tried to register for it.
Stanmore63 - as you have just bought one, is it the model with the removable chuck for accessories such as right angle driver etc? The AEG website seems to say this model has it but the picture suggests it doesnt? Weighing this up against the Hitachi on here.

Where have you read that? I registered mine earlier today with no problem
Harry.the.hat23/01/2019 18:15

When I tried to register the battery and the charger via the AEG website it didn't recognise the serial numbers so I contacted them. It did recognise the drill however. That is when they informed me the drill is only covered for 3 years by registering and the batteries/charger for a standard year. The 6 year warranty for the drill and 3 year for batteries is exclusive only to Homebase purchases when registered. It maybe worth reading the small print in your registration and checking the expiry date. Let me know if you have a different experience. Thanks.

Just looked at the manual that came with it and I cannot see a way to remove the chuck to use it in the way you have mentioned. The manual isn't very comprehensive to be honest. Saying all that, and the problem with the extended warranty I have had, it is still feels a quality piece of machinery. Certainly feels well put together anyway. The battery charges from nearly flat (supplied like that) to full charged very quickly.

I read over the warranty terms and conditions, it's says the extended warranty is only available to countries listed on the registration Web site. Says nothing about havigg to buy it from homebase. I've registered this drill set, and the impact driver I bought from CPC. Seems they might be trying to have you over

Ok Harry. Thanks for your help. I think they are trying it on with me. Having a 6 year warranty was a major factor in buying to be honest. It will go back to CPC if they don't honour this. It is plastered all over their packaging about the 6 year warranty for one thing!

Thanks for looking, it was just I looked the product code up on the aeg site and found this link and the chuck would have been a bonus, good to know the two of you are happy so far though. May be end of line reductions, looks a good deal though regardless.

Thanks for the link! Interesting to see that if you use a 4.0ah battery you get far more torque at 75Nm... that is impressive! You're in industrial strength drill territory there!
@cpctweet concerns are raised about warranty on this deal, please clarify thanks.

@Stanmore63 for info, hopefully CPC will reply via this thread to clear things up.
Edited by: "PennyTrader" 23rd Jan
thanks been meaning to take the plunge and buy. the 6 year warranty is also a big factor cor me look forward to seeing the response!
