Real toy for tough boys.Not for gentle DiY, faint hearted or kiddies. If u r one of these look away now.

The only cordless in B n Q, in my opinion, to justify buying - it is for serious use delivering Gr8 torque stuff. £129.98 with 1 no 3.0Ah Li ion battery - £149.98 with a second one (priced at £90.00 on the shelf). A win win situation for people in the know. Get the VAT back - 'tis even cheaper. This item is not for wimps.

The AEG 18v 2 speed combination drill has a hammer action for fast drilling and high torque for screwdriving. This tool has a 13mm keyless chuck, 24 torque settings and the 3.0Ah battery makes this ideal for heavy duty tasks when a powerful tool is required.

Didn't seem like a bad deal this so not sure why it is going cold. I nearly went for the AEG the other weekend but bought the Makita Anniversary Edition. Must say it does look kinda cool in black and white

EDIT: Really wish people would post their opinions when they are voting cold.

Dunno much about the anniversary edition however, Makita at this level r lightweight. Give 'em to the boy to drill in confined spaces as with kitchen fitting. Nice n small for the petite.

Just that for this price you can get a dewalt or mikita and you know theyre quality drills. Where people are unsure on the b and q brand as they havent been proven enough just yet (what I reckon).

And how exactly r u qualified to make this rash statement that bears no basis in fact? Unlike myself who buys drills on a regular basis including the ones in yre post.

So is this 2x 3.0ah batteries or just 1? Title + description conflict.

AEG have been around longer than DeWalt and Makita and are known for their good quality. If my memory serves me they made the first 'portable' drills over 100 years ago. (Not that I was around)

Now show me a DeWalt, Bosch or Makita with 2 18V 3.0 Ah Li Ion batteries for under £150, with the same specs. on the drill.

This is a hot deal.

No, disregard that! with 1 its £130 and with 2 its £150.

Good deal for two solid batteries.
Also AEG is not B&Q own brand. Theyre a good make.

AEG are still a very good drill,I believe now they are a diy version of Milwaukee
easily as good as dewalt and Makita though
voted hot

Almost wish I hadn't got the Makita now as I was thinking about this very drill. Not the end of the world though still very happy with it.

This is actually a hot deal!!!. What's with the cold vote.

I guess some cold voters must be comparing this to the lidl specials.

Heated up...

Anyone got a link on the website to the battery, I cant find it?

Indeed, it's impossible. I've spent the last week looking at various 18volt 3amp cordless drills and most that come with 2 batteries cost over £200.

The only issue is how well built is AEG as it's no doubt made in China like nearly everything else these days.

I wonder if it's a store specific deal though as not mentioned on the site

It is, I believe, not advertised on line. The second battery option is in the store being priced separately at £90.00. You pay £20.00 at the till with the AEG pack. This will be my first heavy duty AEG however, that said most drills, similar spec. will not last more than 12months - 2years when worked properly and for what they were purchased to do. In terms of business you write them off against Tax anyway. If u r occasional DIY then look elsewhere for cheaper throw away option. Incidentally do not expect even cupboard stored drills to last and perform long. It is the nature of the beast.

MOST things are made in China these days but that doesn't automatically affect the quality. Most big brands manufacture over there but do so under their own quality control and to their own high standards.

Absolutely, the thing is that some items are great and some bad... the trouble is with brand names now being owned and used by other mega companies you don't/can't always assume quality which was what I really meant.

I've not had personal experience of AEG other than my AEG dishwasher which is a Hotpoint brand. It seems that since 2009 AEG brand has been sold off to various companies so not sure who owns the power tools division.

3 year warranty apparently.

They are an indudtrial tool, not DIY - makes it a better deal if you can put it to proper work. I thought AEG power tools/drills were owned and built by jap company?

Just noticed in the destructions that the drill has 60N torque. Real bad boy. Nearly double of the GR* and almighty De walt...1.5AH as follows...Max. drilling capacity in wood 38mm, steel 13mm. Max. torque 35Nm. Overall length 190mm. Weight 3kg.

I spent some time looking at drills recently and noticed FFX have the Milwaukee C18PD-32 with two 3.0Ah batts for 200 quid delivered.
Given the brand and the price, I chose to order this instead for the extra money.

Similar torque but just looked like a proper piece of kit.

This drill, fully charged is large. Not 4 DIY. One of the most powerful cordless i have encountered at such a silly reasoanble price..

I have had the Blue/Silver AEG 18v drill for the last umpteen years and it gave up recently.
Absolutely devastated. A True Trojan used heavily & regularly and gave me it`s all.
Where do I find another cos these lightweight things don`t fill me with inspiration.
