Limited stock.

Prefer corded hammers myself useful to some. Go via VoucherCodes for £10 back + 8% with Pockit Card. Ideal for occasionaly light around the house DIY.

With a brushless motor electricity is delivered directly to your drill. The reduced friction gives you an extended run time and longer life overall. With 2 speed transmission in metal gear housing you get improved durability and an extensive rubber overmoulded handle improves your comfort.

Brushless motor for extended run time and longer life.

You can buy an additional black and decker battery at Tesco for £20, or the 2.0Ah one for 29.99 from Amazon uk.
in my opinion the Hitachi with 2 x 2.5ah batteries is a better deal. paid £99 last week from screwfix.

This has a brushless motor but the batteries are still rubbish if you are planning on doing anything other than VERY light D>I>Y.
Best price seen for a brushless, get more power and better battery life than brush motors.
Nearly £30 for spare 2.0 amp battery.. amazon.co.uk/BLA…Y68

Just a heads up, I got a little confused reading the specs of this drill …Just a heads up, I got a little confused reading the specs of this drill as Argos have it listed as 43Nm max torque, this is the B&D BL188 and the correct in-depth specs can be found here...http://www.blackanddecker.co.uk/en-gb/products/power-tools/drills/18v-lithiumion-brushless-2-gear-hammer-drill--400ma-charger/bl188This only has 1x 1.5ah battery but it does have a 2 year (non trade) warranty.Given the cost of additional batteries (£30 for a 2ah) is £55 for one small battery that good of a deal ?I keep bring it up but .... £95 with 2x2ah and a 3 year trade warranty...http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6203997This also includes a case that fits the drill, charger and batteries, the B&D Argos listing does not include a case/bag.


Thanks, but I can't be the only one to know if 53nm torque is decent enough, even if it is clearly better than 43? TiA. I have a B&D cordless hedge trimmer already, so have one battery already.

Thanks, but I'm none the wiser if the power on this is OK (i.e. better than my old NiCAD Ryobi drill?)
Never mind brushless is it 8 or 10 bit?
Will this be ok for drilling into exterior brick walls, for putting up fixtures like security lights?

I haven't used this particular drill so can't comment specifically, the …I haven't used this particular drill so can't comment specifically, the specs imply that it is a mid range DIY drill. I used to buy Aldi/Lidl/B&D stuff but as my confidence and ability grew with DIY I started to find such tools either didn't last very long or weren't entirely up to the task.If you just want a tool for odd jobs I'm sure it's fine, it does have a 2 years DIY warranty after all and Argos aren't so bad with returns. If however you are at all contemplating using the drill to make holes in bricks or concrete or for a major project I would seriously advise the Fatmax as a baseline drill.There's 100's of drills at 100's of different price points and you should spend relevant to your requirements. If you are just going to hang the occasional shelf or build the odd bit of flat pack this is ok, if you are a hobbyist or do most of your own renovations / decorating, then I would advise spending more.


If I have done my research right there is 4nm difference between the two. I'm not sure if it's like the dB curve and that's quite a lot or whether they are within spittng distance of each other? Is it the power that makes you think the fatmax is in a different league or something else?
