Good price if it isn't the bare tool - how many batteries (if any) are included?

Good drills & excellent price if it comes with a couple of batteries. Been using the first generation of this for the past 6 years and still going strong. Excellent range of other tools that use these batteries too. I have most of them so know they play well together (except the strimmer which only takes 1.3ah batteries). Rest will use 1.5ah or 2ah. I suspect these will be the 1.5's but might be lucky with the 2's.

​​i think its comes with 2 batteries but im not sure, sorry.

I've got this, came with 2 batteries and is fantastic. Paid £100ish for mine last year so this is an absolute bargain

Sure I just saw the same drill in Screwfix catalogue £99.99

No you didn't. Screwfix don't sell the "green" household models, only the "Blue" Pro versions.

As for this drill, the clutch brake on it is too sharp for the lightweight chuck and keeps loosening when you stop it and the drill bits fall out. It did on mine, and loads of people say online they have the same issue. Took mine back and got a Dewalt which has been faultless.

If you rarely use a drill, then this will be fine, otherwise get something a bit better like the Bosch Blue, Dewalt or Makita. Even Hitachis are better than this.

I've got a couple of the green drills at similar prices from B&Q in the past, I think they are good value and when I asked Bosch you can use the higher rated batteries in the Power4all range. They've recently released a 2.5amp battery but unfortunately you need a different shape charger for it or I saw on Amazon there seems to be a generic 3.0amp battery for the range:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Powerextra-Professional-Lithium-Ion-Battery-Power-4-All/dp/B01B9AP1C6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1475174148&sr=8-3&keywords=bosch+power4all

However, if you've a bit more to spend on it I can recommend the blue version (GSB18-2-li) as I have this one to continue my trend of "all the gear but no idea" as it feels much more solidly built with the sensitivity on the trigger is much better but if a fellow enthusiastic amateur both do most the jobs round the house.

which I have seen the 2amp two battery version on screwfix in the past for £99 but they only seem to have the single 4amp battery version. Next best price at present I could see was:

Hope this helps

I have this drill and its brilliant, mine came with two batteries. It will do everything you need a drill to do, drilling (well duh) Screwing and even hammer drill setting. It has a light on the battery so when you use it, it very clear in even the darkest of places.

I would highly recommend it for a round the house drill. Thats what I use it for so I cant say if you intend to use it in the work place

If this comes with two batteries, even 1.3Ah ones, then they're worth most of the £60 on their own, making the drill body itself very cheap.

Heat added, thanks. Don't need one but a good bargain anyhow.

Only a 10mm chuck on these too I believe if that is a sticking point for anyone.
