Is this brushless?


No, if it was add a further couple of hundred pounds on to it.
All this brushless jargon only will apply to the tradesman who is constantly using the tool with heavy usage, and can justify the extra cash for long life. But for the average Joe tradesman at this price you cannot go wrong.
I have used mine alot and it's fantastic, and recharging is so fast.

Well the 3 batteries in the previous deal add up the two in this deal. well amperage wise

So this is like the last deal, although there is no free battery promo from Bosch going on at the time

I think price is still pretty good considering that the Combi and impact bodies are usually near the £90 mark and 4Ah battery is ~£40+ (non-wireless).

Agree you usually get what you pay for but aren't the engines for these made by a couple of manufacturers and so this takes this element out. Agree Honda have a good reputation but if you're buying at around the £100 mark then will it last 3x as long?



Honda mowers last average use of well over 10+ years and can be serviced, parts can be replaced - good luck sourcing parts for this mower

ill bet this mower is made under licence and not by makita

I might wrong but I think Ryobi own McCulloch which If true explains a lot

I'm new to lawnmowers, What does self propelled mean?



The motor drives the rear wheels when you press a handle, so it makes it easier to push. you have to remember that petrol lawnmowers are a lot heavier than electric ones - an electric mower maybe 3-10kg whereas a petrol will be 30kg+ - my Honda is is one of the lightest petrol mowers at 34kg - after an hours mowing itll feel like 100kg

id go for self propelled every time, well worth the extra - my Honda cost me £300 6 years ago which was an amazing bargain - most places then were £499+ - Honda are still doing £50 cashback at selected dealers - ive seen some hinda izy's in some dealers for £350, so £300 for a Honda izy and itll p**s over this lawn mower

You can also get another 10% off this : http://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/10-off-highest-price-item-using-voucher-code-axminster-tools-1530136

I've had the drill for about a week now, first impressions were good, it's not too heavy. I've been using it to put together kitchen cupboards so nowt too taxing and it's done nothing to cause concern. On Sunday I'm planning to put up a satellite dish which will involve drilling 4 holes into brick and I'll let you know how it goes. You may want to put off the purchase until then.

Even if the hammer action is too weak for bricks it can still be a very capable drill for other uses. Many cordless drills have no hammer action at all. The comment about bits falling out earlier makes me wonder if the chuck is designed for impact use.

It would be nice to see some more reviews from people who have bought this and put it to use.

youtube.com/wat…zHk

As Bonzobanana say, with the 'HIGH04' voucher for an additional 10% off the highest price item you can get this and say a few sets of clearance twist drills for a few pence over £50.

I've just had a full refund on mine as it wasn't up to making two small holes in a standard brick (it overheated drilling the second hole and repeatedly cut off the power). I phoned to check and their service department found no fault in the drill.
So from my experience this isn't any use as a masonry (hammer) drill; I'm in two minds whether to recommend it as at £50 it is an OK drill/driver in soft materials.

If you use 'HIGH04' you can save £5 just add a very small item to get the total back over £50. Pretty sweet deal for the spec. While not in stock you can still order and it states it will be back in stock in a week.

Otocon, you need to adjust the title and an actual description would help!

It's only £19.96 if you collect instore only, it's actually £24.91 delivered.

Argos do a 115mm one for <£15, albeit 500W, rather than 750W (although IWHT that 500W would be enough for tool of this size and typical use). I keep one in a jig like this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Einhell-4431040-Cutting-Angle-Grinders/dp/B000GQ77IQ) for cutting small bar stock and reinforcing rod. (Although I must remember not to use it with the sparks going towards the greenhouse, as they burn themselves into the glass, no problem). It looks to be a direct start, rather than a soft start, which rules it out for me to use other than in a jig as my wrists wouldn't be strong enough to control it. A soft start angle grinder (Lidl/Aldi often have good deals on them) is a lot easier and sfer IMHO, YMMV.

I'm sure the large brands are better, but also overpriced and made cheaply!
This is ideal for a non regular user or first time DIYer.

cor, must be quality! 3 Lithium ion batteries, a drill, charger and case all for less than the price of 1 branded battery....

I was expecting this to have Nicad batteries.

For a 3 x Li-on battery system, and 1 hr charge, that's pretty good.

By Leo Byrne on 3rd January 2013
This is amazing value. I bought a Bosch 18v Li Ion from Screwfix at the same time, and am using both simultaneously to fit out my new workshop. This Axion seems just as good as the Bosch, and comes with 3 batteries. If only you made a circular saw to match.

By Roger Ball on 20th December 2012
A great tool and brilliant value. I have bought two to replace my old Ni Cad drills.

By Frank Silver on 17th October 2011
A very useful drill. It is handy being able to go from hammer drilling to screwdriving by just turning a collar.The keyless chuck is easy to use and gives a good grip on the drill bit. The battery power indicator means you can fit a fresh battery before starting the job.A bonus to me was that all three batteries came fully charged.
The only downside so far, is the built-in job light. It gets brighter as the drill goes faster,this is a bit useless if one is working in a dark corner and need the light before starting the drill.Aprt from that,it does what it says on the box

...and if tyres are the only thing you can see a use for, maybe you should too...

@dorito - not really, around the house/garden, a simple 20 quid inflator would be more suitable. something of that size is more suited to model makers or carpenters to be honest. 5cfm @ 40psi isn't really good for much more than an impact gun or nail gun. it would probably run a spray gun ok but with only a 24l tank, it would be running most of the time and as it's direct drive, it wouldn't be quiet about it. sanders and die grinders would be out of the question.

If you cant think of a use for compressed air it may be safer if you give this one a miss.

Hint- look at the 4 round rubber things on your car.

just curious - what would you use these things for - any use around the house/garden?

I have one of these, paid around £80 for it about 12 months ago. Worth every penny. The reception is great and although the power isn't much in terms of watts it more than makes up for it in the way it delivers the sound. You can also plug an mp3 player into it. I know it does not charge batteries unlike the Dewalt one however I have friends say that when charging it can interfer with the radio reception. So for under £50 just get it!

have seen this twice in two separate building magazines this week, basic price for this one now and DAB one is around 100ish.
they are good except use up one of your spare batterys and doesnt have its own separate battery to charge up.

Decent deal. My brother has one of these - he's a joiner - and he paid £60 at the time, which was considered a steal, so £50 is a bargain! He's had his for two years now, and carted it to 100's of sites, and it's still going strong.
