I just saw this on ebay (Argos official clearance merchant) selling this for £45.99 + £4.99 del. New with 12 months guarantee.

SDS drills are great. I got a Ryobi one from Screwfix a couple of years back for £50. Only comes out when the bosch cordless can't cope but it is like a knife through butter compaired with normal hammer drills.

To be honest your better off buying the higher spec ones from Aldi's or Lidl's they come with 3year warrantee and are half the price of the Bosch... ;o)

I wonder if he drives a Fiat Panda becuse ' those Japaneese and German cars are rubbish.'

Sometimes cheaper doesnt mean worse!!

Lidl's and Aldi's are NOT made by their own companies, they are Badged by them only. They are made by reputable companies and as I mentioned earlier they STILL come with a 3 YEAR WARRANTEE, Bosch do not. Example Aldi's call theirs Powercraft and their Pressure Washer helpline is Karche, and yet they are half of the price of the Karche models, don't believe the hype my friend, they have MASSIVE buying power and thats why they can reduce their prices. Don't believe the hype my friend, I don't work for any of these companies, so I have nothing to gain, I am just trying to save you some of your well earned dosh. It is a absolute fact that Bosch's domestic equipment is grossly overpriced, I know because I have used their equipment in the past. A poor fund of knowledge will not save you money ;o)

however, you do realise that should aldi sell a crap product, it mostly reflects bad on Adli/lidl not karcher or the actual manufacturer.

Karcher branded products will (most of the time) be better, as crappy karcher branded produts mean bad rep for karcher.

It does come down to a huge number of factors, sometimes is just easier to make a million of the same items, rather then redesigning for aldi/lidl, sometimes it isn't, sometimes they may just give old stock. So no-one can say Aldi/lidl are bad, but it's more likely that they will be bad because the manufacturers don't have too much to lose (apart from their relationship with Adli/lidl).

Cold I'm afraid, got the same drill from Argos Clearance Bargains on eBay last week - £51 delivered. Came the next day, too!

So what you're saying is that manufacturers shift their old stock rebranded to third party retailers and not care about quality because it doesn't have their name on it!?!

lol, what a load of tosh. Manufacturers will always end up stumping the bill for inferior quality goods. Do you really think that the retailer is ever at a loss?

The budget ones the chap was on about earlier tend to be of the 5kg variety, which is fine for breaking and big holes but not so good for repeated use.

This kind of thing

I know that Bosch washing machines have a 2 year manufacturers warranty as we bought one but I'm not certain about their power tools.
Last month I took back a Bush freeview box back to Currys after 2.5 years after it went bang. I didn't have extended warranty but I did know that ANY retailer is responsible for goods after the manufacturers warranty has run out, and they didn't like me reminding them of that! In the end I got a full refund in vouchers, though in truth I was only entitled to £14 out of £25. The retailer is supposed to work out a percentage of the use of the item but they gave me full amount. The downside to all this is that certain goods are repairable, and the retailer does have the option of repair or replace, whichever is cheaper. Also if it's a large item then you may have to prove the item was faulty with your own expert (engineer, electrician etc) but if you're right, all good.
Most manufacturers say their goods should last at least 5 years like cookers, fridges etc used to but the retail will first of all say "sorry, your 1 year warranty has expired and you didn't extend it at time of purchase"...they won't tell you your rights.
Everyone should be aware of all this so that we get better products again that last (like our parents and grandparents did) and also not pushed into expensive extended warranty, that might not be needed.
Just google Sales Of Goods Act....rant over.

That blindly saying Aldi/Lidl is always good or always bad is a sign of ignorance and stupidity.

Ultimately you need view the product and read reviews if possible before you buy it.

The poster above has just said it's great for normal stuff but no repeated use.

Selective reading? Read it again...... I didn't say they manufacturers always shift old stock it depends on whats ultimately cheaper for them and wont damage their reputation too much (if indeed there is even a risk of reputation damage).

They will always do what is cheaper for them......they are out to make money. Period.

If you want a professional, very lightweight sds drill, pay £15 more and get this Makita from B&Q direct . The DIY Bosch will start leaking oil way before the Makita breaks a sweat, I know I had one.

Includes 15 SDS Plus drill bits worth a least £15!
