How do you get Amazon to price match?
These are really good little drills for general DIY use, battery lasts a reasonable length. The only issue with this drill (and what stops it being an amazing drill) is that the battery is built in and can't be removed. This means that the whole drill has to be on charge

I don't know this for a fact but looking at the photo, the black end of the handle looks like it had finger/thumb grips to unclip, suggesting the battery is removable, hopefully?
Looked it up on Amazon and they say removable battery and charging station.

Why can't people just make this stuff simple 😥

Cold from me on the basis that a fortnight ago you could get the Milwaukee equivalent for £36 more. Keep an eye out for Toolstation codes as the product is still available, just at £100. But £50 for a DIY drill with one 1.5ah battery vs £86 for a pro drill with two 2ah batteries makes this seem like very poor value. I know people will say "but it's not £86 now so this is better", but if you're in no rush I believe the Milwaukee model is getting phased out so it may come down again.
this is out of stock now

Nope, when battery is removable the bottom of the handle is a lot more wider. Fact

More wider
I've had a very similar looking drill from Lidl a year or so ago, with a quick release Chuck and a screw driver head underneath plus a removable battery and spares available on line. Ok for screwing and light drilling around household DIY. Like all parkside tools they're seasonal though!

Looks to be the same part and has a narrow base with a removable battery.
I have one of these and the battery iS removable. I also purchased a 2.0 Ah battery separately as the 1.5 Ah supplied I found a little lacking.

Thats a different model but I would imagine all have removable batteries.
Its Bosch, not Tesco own brand.
This is an excellent drill. I purchased it from amazon
Purely personal opinion of course but this Bosch professional would be worth the extra, two batteries, charger and carry case.

It is removable. Also writing "fact" at the end of a statement doesn't make it so.

Absolutely agree with this. The spare battery alone is worth the price difference.
Bosch do two types of their 10.8v cordless drill, one with built in battery and one with removable. Comparing the wickes picture with the non removable option it would appear the wickes one comes with the removable battery. Personally I think I would prefer the makita option for the same price and less charge time.

wickes.co.uk/Mak…853

I actually bought wickes own brand a couple of years ago and was so impressed with it I bought one for my son in law and it has had some serious use refurbishing a full house. Cracking little drill when on offer at wickes for less than 35 quid and only 20 minutes charge time with Samsung battery. Obviously of no use to anyone who prefers to buy a name but remember that not all items are made by the company who's name is on the item.
Got one of these today, the last one in my area, had to travel 11 miles to collect it, but it was well worth the drive.

Small and compact with a 2.0ah removable battery. It also has hammer action which is a bonus as the PSR version from Argos does not have this.

Thank for the post, well pleased.
Please get a makita or dewalt with lithium batteries...invest in one system then the batteries can be used on all of the tools. FAR better than this diy gear.

You're preaching to the unconvertible. I've kind of realised that people who are hell-bent on spending £50 or less on a drill won't be talked out of it no matter what logic, reasoning or experience you hit them with.

10mm. You generally don't get 13mm chucks with low voltage appliances..
