Morning all! I must admit i'm no expert on DIY but this seems like a very good price for this combi-drill - currently £170 at BQ/Screwfix

http://www.toolstop.co.uk/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/resized/BOS-GSB18VECDS-06019D7177-3.jpg

The great GSB 18 V-EC Combi Drill with 18 torque settings, hammer action, drilling mode and screwdriver setting is at home with many tasks. Paired up with 2.0Ah batteries which keeps the weight down for a great all round drill you can use all day without fatigue. At only 189mm long, this compact machine comes with 2 x 2.0Ah batteries and a charger in a carry case with enough free space to hold drill bits and other accessories.

FEATURES:

100% longer lifetime thanks to brushless EC motor technology
Very efficient: up to 75 holes (6 x 50 mm) in masonry (test concrete in accordance with EN 60745-2-1-) with only one battery charge (18 V - 4.0 Ah)
Even more powerful: 31 Nm (soft screwdriving applications) for a broad range of applications (18 V - 4.0 Ah)

Integrated impact drilling function for drilling in masonry up to 13 mm
Compact design: very short head length (only 189 mm) for perfect handling

Innovative CoolPack batteries ensure optimum heat dissipation and therefore increase lifetime by up to 100% (cf. Li-Ion batteries without CoolPack)

Bosch Electronic Cell Protection (ECP): protects the battery against overload, overheating and deep discharge
Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) protects the motor against overload and ensures a long lifetime

13-mm Auto-Lock drill chuck

Integrated LED light with afterglow function for illuminating the work area, even in dark places

Replaceable colour clips for easy labelling and identification of the tool
Mountable bit holder for easy transport and storage of bits on the tool
Practical belt clip for conveniently hanging the tool on a belt or ladder
Motor brake for precise work when driving rows of screws

Is this a good price with 2 x 2ah batteries and being brushless?

Is this a good price with 2 x 2ah batteries and being brushless?



It's a good price
Just as an alternative I spotted this the other day and thought it was great deal for £20 more and slightly lower capacity batteries you get an impact driver and a nice bag. Dewalt also have an identical kit for the same price.

Depends if you want an impact driver I guess, If you are doing Decking you wont regret it.
2ah batteries are not great tbh. i got the slightly older model with 3 ah batteries for £30 more. still have some heat
screwfix.com/p/m…d8c is this not the better? 2x3Ah batteries and higher torque @ 42Nm.
For this price I think you'd be better buying the one that's £99 at screwfix with 4ah battery and buy a second battery for £30 - £50 depending on what size you want. Lots of 4Ah ones in the amazon warehouse for £45.

Worth the extra £15 to double battery capacity.

very good deal, but this is better value (same drill) if want more / better accessories

Normally you have a choice between 2 x 2Ah and 1 x 4Ah , but the below has one of each, plus an L-BOXX and accessories for an extra £26

Those are brushed motor drills, and 1.5Ah battery's done think that's the best deal tbh

It's certainly a comparison. I'll leave it to you to decide if it's good or not since you took the time to search for it. It doesn't underpin any point you are trying to make however.

Brushless or not, I posted an opportunity to buy a quality bosch drill, with a 3 year guarantee and a 4Ah battery plus a supplementary 4Ah battery for only £15 more than the OP - thereby offering twice the running time to the average user. The individual can decide on whether or not it's a better deal for them.

You are of course welcome to continue buying your preferred kit at Argos.

funny , i'm really not trying to be hostile - i actually have the drill that you posted and its great !

but this is a better drill, being brushless which quite a big improvement ( have a read nmbtc.com/bru…rs/ ) - I was merely pointing out that the drill you had linked was not the same thing as the deal you are replying to , which may confuse/deceive people, especially if they take a trip to screwfix to buy it - i thought maybe you were mistaken, obviously your explanation clarifies the deal you were proposing and that you were not - thanks

but if a drill is a drill as you say you should have no problem with the Argos comparison , you started it
I'm sure this is a great product.

The cheaper lower spec version I bought last year with 2 x 1.5Ah batteries also meets my needs very well. The moment you have 2 batteries, one can be on charge whilst the other is in use. So even the lower capacity is fine for me.

I understand the difference between brushed and brushless motors - this is however a site about good deals. The average person searching for a power tool on here is unlikely to reap the benefit of the overall additional cost of a brushless motor compared to a brushed one. They will though - IMHO - appreciate the benefit of having batteries that are likely to be able to overlap charging cycles. Especially is they have only one 2 amp charger - as would be supplied with either deal. That scenario is more likely with a couple of 4 Ah batteries (even if the charging time merely doubles).

Personally I'd advise anyone buying from the bosch rage to try and get the 1860 charger - 6 amp just about guarantees overlapping charge cycles for your batteries whatever the capacity.

And I think you'll find that only you went to the extreme of a link to a 12v drill with an 0.8Ah battery in order to prove a point that doesn't exist. The drill from screwfix, while not brushless, is not markedly inferior to the one offered here.
That's all very nice, but miles from the original point that this thread was about the specific drill that was posted, which is very similar to the one you linked but with notable differences - if you were giving a general opinion on drills, ok, but it appeared to be a 'deal' comparison with this.

Post a deal on the drill you are talking about im sure it will do well , especially with your expert advice, as i said its a great drill that i bought and im sure many would deem more suitable.

I also posted a similar deal to this as i thought it was good value for the brushless model, with no implication that anyone must buy it , i just recognised it as a good deal for that specific item.

Some people may deem the argos drill to be entirely suitable too, im sure it goes round at least.

This is a deals comparison site.

I provided a sound alternative of similar if not better value.

You went and remain "miles from" the point - to a destination with no comparison.

The bosch drill I linked to has previously been posted - not by me - and did very well. I suggest you post the Argos drill and compare member reaction to it and the two bosch items.

Now I'll leave you to your circuitous ramblings and spin.

this isn't a 'deals comparison site' , you obviously have some confusion in your head as that's not how it works, confounded by your disjointed reply.

you missed the simple point i made, and then tried to make the exact same point to me, perhaps you need a new combi drill, as you seem to have a screw loose.

I'm sure I know how it works. You may think that you are able to dictate the usage of the site, but it is just a thought.
I'll say this though, with the 1860 charger your priority plumbing deal is probably the best of the three.

More than happy to.
i haven't looked at drills for awhile but i believe this is an older model, (hence the clearance price ?)
Max torque is 50Nm, and i believe the newer ones are higher (cost more to though)

The drill nerds out out today.

Wheres that comment that always pops up on these deals? " its okay for D.I.Y. but obviously not good enough for a tradesman like me".

looks like a good deal
Was looking at these types of drills last week but noticed the Brushless type do not have Hammer action, just if anyone hadn't noticed

Good price though for this type


Actually I stand correct, this does have Hammer action, I though the Brushelss type weren't made for that this is even better

I managed to grab that for £60 with vouchers. Very good drill for DIY. And to be honest, all else being equal, for DIY i'd rather have 3 x 1.5ah batteries then 2 x 2ah or a 4ah. Allows me to pickup cheap bodies when possible. Whilst I'm rarely if ever going to run out of juice for DIY use.

Is this the newer brushless version of the gsb18-2li-plus?
