looks decent enough for a tenner


Reserved thanks OP

value range. i doubt this drill will last very long though

If your going to get a cheap drill this is the sort to have. The cheap battery drills are just completely useless as they have no power and run out of juice in minutes. These corded drills on the other hand have plenty of grunt and tend to be enough for people doing basic occasional DIY (Shelves, pictures etc). Ok it won't last forever but will do the job and as I've said is a far better choice than a cheap cordless.

If you can afford more and will be using it a lot I'd recommend the Mikata cordless drill that screwfix have on for around £80-100 as that will be far more versatile.

Huge jump for most from £10 to £80.

Just like outside HOT!!!!!

I got a cheap power drill like this for £20 for B & Q 5 years ago and it has seen plenty of use including going through thick exterior walls on a number of occasions. It still works perfectly. If they are going to fail they usually do it pretty quickly. For most people one of these used occasionally will last a long time.

For your average Diyer spending £100 on a drill is completely pointless and not needed IMO.

B&Q were doing a 710w Worx hammer drill for between £15-30 a week or so ago which is a much better buy than this.

500w is underpowered for a cordless drill, but as others say this is aimed at the cheapy DIY crowd.

I bought one of these which died after two holes. The replacement one is about to get its second DIY job tonight. They're definitely cheap but if you're not expecting it to last too long then it's a good buy (but yes, still full price).

Its not cordless though.

I bought one of these - it is not two handed as the picture suggests which is a bit misleading (not the ops fault as the catalogue shows the same). I would have prefered two handed for more support and accuracy on drilling into brick but for £10 it has been ok.

Meant to say corded. ^^ cheers

Thanks to Op. Just reserved one.
