Hi people, I'm posting this because I wanted something smaller than the £149.99 Screwfix 4ah DeWalt deal.

Recently released (2019) drill from DeWalt with some good updates like the penpop clutch for repairs.

Screwfix deal is better in many ways, but this is a good alternative for a lower price.

Also has free delivery.

I bought a ‘Bosch PSB Li-2 1800 18V Cordless Drill with Spare Battery & Case’ from Robert Dyas for £79.99 the other day. Tempted to send it back and get this instead. The only problem is I don’t use it very often and not sure I really need this level of drill.

Are you getting a lot more for the extra £50?
I would say yes because my Bosch just broke as soon as it went out of warranty haha. I used my neighbors DeWalt that was charged last year to put half a decking down. Worked like a dream and the drill is about 10 years old.
That was a 2ah battery and the spec on the drill was way worse.

The Bosch is excellent for DIY. If you intend to buy other cordless tools, then try and stay in the same eco system because batteries are expensive. Saying that, I stick to Bosch green for DIY stuff like building sheds and planters and sticking up photo frame and shelves etc.
Battery wasn't Lithium ion as well.
hotukdeals.com/dea…302 - this deal includes an impact driver for an extra £50 - which is totally worth it so if you can stretch the budget and don't have one, get the pair..
What's the difference between this one and the DCD795D2 for £20 more?

It's a bit older and can't be delivered to your home. The delivery was a big thing for me at the minute. Spec wise they are much of a muchness to a DIYer, but I'm sure there are some tech savvy people out there who will break it down. I'm in the middle of doing DIY myself haha.
Not bought into a battery system yet, this one or the bosch for similar money, albeit with a touch less power?
What is the difference between this and the DCD778? Excluding price is one better than the other?
I need to drill a brick wall in the garage to hook up a wall-mounted dyson holder. Obviously it’s also good to have a drill around the house afterwards but Is this the sort of drill I need or is it overkill?
In terms of quality drill brands how does this stack up against the likes of Makita and Ryobi these days?
I'm no specialist, but apparently Milwaukee are best for masonry. DeWalt and Makita/ Ryobi have their fans, but lots of people moving towards DeWalt. DeWalt people seem to rebuy. Just my impression. The DCD778 is a more powerful drill on paper, but it is bigger so go figure.
How does this model compare with the DCD785C2?
It looks like a more powerful drill with a smaller battery so probably less run time. I have just done a load of masonry work and decking with the drill from this deal and it worked perfectly. The masonry was like butter. Highly recommend it. Also, battery was perfect for a few DIY bits. Yet to change or charge the first battery after a couple hours work. Also, a bit smaller than most drill which was surprisingly useful.
I got a £10 off voucher for this in the latest brochure I received in the post. Keep your eyes open!
Boom! Buy and stick on eBay
