Mmm, could have sworn I bought this set up from B&Q for about £52.00 about a month ago during their sale.

37.00 for the drill/driver (same as this one with the 2 batts) and 15.00 for the drill bit kit.

Not sure if I can see this as hot.

This is the blue professional range & not the green DIY product.

Didn't realise that. Just checked and it's actually a bloody good price.

Haven't voted either way but could be worth making that clear in the title fella.

Done:thumbsup:. Repped

It's 14.4v though. How can that be professional. Should be 18v at least with quality to match.

It has metal gears inside as opposed to plastic ones in the DIY range.

Much like Megapixels in Cameras, the voltage in these drills is only part of the story. The current that the battery pack can provide is important too, together with the torque that the motor can deliver. For example, the 14.4 Li-ION Green Bosch that people were getting excited over here at B&Q a day or two ago, will generate half the torque that this drill will. ie, this drill is twice as powerful as that Li-ION drill!!!! Yet people get themselves wet over the Li-ION pack.

Don't be misled by the marketing.

This is a professional quality drill - metal gears, high torque, and will stand up to regular use much better than the green range, and better than many supposedly more powerful higher voltage drills too. I personally think the Site drill at Screwfix is still better value - 3 x batteries, high torque, metal gearbox, and made by Makita for 45 quid delivered. It's the same drill that Makita sell for 300.

This deal definitely hot though.
