Now back up to £59.95 :(
Sorry hadn't spotted these were wireless. The ones I quoted obviously aren't which isn't helpful. Less concerned about the reliable power / capacity issues as the reviews are very favourable. And I picked mine up from eBay not GB, not that it would necessarily help get an exchange.
Yes, but these are wireless charging - you just sit them on the charger, in the tool if you feel like it. And they come with an extended Bosch guarantee. No doubt the Floureons are a bargain but they wont be either the same reliable power capacity as originals and they won't last as long. Try getting Gearbest to exchange them if they wont charge after a few months.
I got 2 compatible 4ah batteries for £22 (11 each) they are Floureon branded and get very good reviews. Only used them for a couple of jobs but seem fine so far.
If you work 30cm from home...maybe.
Cool, Wireless??.. Can I leave the battery at home and take the drill body to work (highfive)
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.
Is this brushless?
Sorry, my bad

The wireless charging version at Screwfix is actually almost twice this price (£189.99)
Thats not wireless charging. OOS now anyhow
£99 at Screwfix - normal price
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 https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bosch-combi-impact-driver-wireless-charging-with-2-x-2-0-plus-free-4ah-through-bosch-2500137 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).
Oh lord I'm off to specsavers asap as I actually read the title as Deep Throat G Spot and my mind boggled, my eyes watered and my fur stood on edge whilst I wondered why the hell I didn't already own any.
Debbie does screwfix.
This deals abit hard to swallow ;)
Heat For the title.
Very good drill, I have had one for 4 years and it is still like new. Not bad considering I used it at work a couple of times a week.
everything is over priced
Any discount codes?
Just got one of these. 3 year warranty. Drilled into brick with 8mm bit wasn't as easy as a bigger mains drill but very light. Alternative was a black and decker for £50 with two li ion batteries.
Was waiting for a deal on this drill..just ordered one..thanks
Can recommend this drill while using it on a job in Hatton Garden recently my gang and I never had to recharge it once the whole Easter bank holiday. (_;)
Could do with a 110 volt.
No self promotion please!
for £30 more you could get 2 x 3.0ah, i usually prefer multi battery sets as you can charge one while using the other, but this still seems a good price so heat added
£40 just for that case. Heat added and one purchased.
Amazing deal with that latest 4.0Ah battery!
Great find with the high capacity battery. heat added
+ £4.95 delivery for orders under £50
are these torx t25? I find that if I am homing in screws with an impact driver it is best to use Torx, Pozi 2 is still the most popular though
Good set but remember they are Torx Head.
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 no longer buy cheap petrol garden tools[/quote] Agreed. Cheap is tat. The fun is akin to finding a bottle of wine that is outstanding for under a fiver(say). I use top qulity all the time £500 + power tools, now I enjoy hunting value tools that if they cease 2 work i bin em. Gives me somat 2 do tracking em down.
I might wrong but I think Ryobi own McCulloch which If true explains a lot had 2 Ryobi strimmers - first RLT30CET lasted 18months and about 10 uses, next Ryobi head unit / green one wouldn't even start! bought a stihl FS 70 C-E which has been brilliant and unlike the Ryobi it starts and cuts with ease I no longer buy cheap petrol garden tools
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
Wow, eggman is on a roll tonight. Must have had a bad day sitting under the bridge with all the other trolls.
You can also get another 10% off this : https://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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4pV7J5WzHk
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.
Same drill with 1 battery £79.94 http://www.axminster.co.uk/axion-combi-drill-li-ion-18v-%281-battery%29-prod858731/ 3 Batteries £54.95 http://www.axminster.co.uk/axion-combi-drill-li-ion-18v-with-3-batteries--package-deal-prod849168/ What's with that????
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.
Yep, I have 2 copy batteries that are very good, and I have ordered 3 of these axion ones... Which makes this statement wrong in the case of these I'm afraid ;)
Some workmates have used aftermarket batteries (following the dreaded flashing charger issue), they seem to be as good as the genuine ones.......
No-one buys these at full price. It's like buying sofas at full price.
buy cheap buy twice not worth the risk
There's one review on the axminster site and 'tis favourable
Try reading the reviews... Has good genuine feedback and reviews. 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. I think it's a cracking budget deal for Li-ion.
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.

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 2012A great tool and brilliant value. I have bought two to replace my old Ni Cad drills.By Frank Silver on 17th October 2011A 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
As the details say: Nailing, stapling, riveting, greasing, dusting, tyre inflating, airbrushing and touch up spraying. As I suggested - DIY use!
...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?
