Many people prefer AEG to DeWalt, each to their own ;-)

live to DIY :? ...........no, i'm a commercial mechanic turned builder

fair do, is Makita not popular ?

I can't find anything that confirms this particular drill is one of the 'selected' tools to qualify for the lifetime service deal.

If it is included then I'm in, the number of battery drills I've discarded over the years simply because the batteries gave up and replacements were more expensive than a new drill.

100 quid at screwfix. Top deal! No hammer drill function though ? I'm on my phone and cant get the site loading

:? yes very, i mostly use Makita myself, why?


It amazes me that people buy cheap diy drills etc then hate doing any jobs because the tools struggle or break.
Industry tools like this, at this price level are a bargain!

Yes 'owlass' mate, I read that bit, but the bit where it says 'selected' tools in the 'Global' range has me worried.................

PS-tools where selling this drill with the earlier June offer so i presume it's still one of the selected tools.

It looks uncannily like the Bosch blue range of drills.

I have not used the AEG drill, but I have seen the US version of their drills. Those are branded Milwaulkee, they are equivilent of a top end Dewalt or Bosch professional and are very good drills.

The chuck looks very good, however this drill is clearly not at a professional level. Tthe batteries are its biggest let down and its weight is too heavy. For the DIY jobber (and I hate to say this) the Black and Decker VPX range (14.4V Lithium) would be better value for money.

For a really good cordless drill, then I would look at the Makita 18v LXT range. And for those that say buy DeWalt or Bosch 36V units, remember that they are substantially heavier and therefore LESS usable for continuing use.

Not professional..........please tell me ya joking :roll:

A Makita LXT for £60 :w00t:

Shedload o' to-ing & frowing, but I reckon I can spare 9 degrees of heat...

AEG drills are of top quality. I need a 12volter as my 18V Makitas a little cumbersome for delicate work. Very tempting!

Owless remember posting that cruddy B&D drill, well this will beat it hands down. Why would anyone buy that when you have the likes of this quality drill.

What else is the AEG GBS battery compatible with? Would I be able to use it on Makita MXT?

Well, I just happened to be in B&Q this a.m. and they have their 'extra 15% off' offer running and there, still boxed on the shelf, is the AEG drill I looked at a few weeks ago.

Worth a punt at just £50.95 I thought and guess what OWLASS, you were right?

It is on the lifetime service deal, free parts, free service and best of all, free batteries for life!

A cracking deal. many thanks for the pointer. :thumbsup:

Sorry for a thread bump, but...

Claims did previously go well, but the original claims website has been disconnected and a google suggests just what AEG would have hoped, i.e. everyone ever that has this offer has not bothered to keep it up. This is the newest UK discussion I can find relating to the LSA. Since AEG want you to contact dealers direct for sales or service (which would seem fair enough normally, but no use for LSA claims) I've just emailed head office to politely remind them of their lifetime offer and my registration details. Will be interesting to see what happens next...
