Its working for me, strange.

Very good price for that, especially with the second battery!

Heat added.

I got a 12.2v version with 2 batteries for a similar price a year ago, son this is better with 14.4v batteries.

Buy this and then pop along to Homebase and get the Bosch X100 accessory kit for £14.99 (or less with printed coupon) - that kit is £34.98 at B&Q!!

thanks 'MikeT'...you can get another £2 off buy using 'reserve&collect' through quidco too.
this will marry with my Homebase Bosch 100 Piece X-Line Accessory Set...so i'm a happy DIYer :-)

The "was" price is £49.98 or £69.98 according to site, depending on if you look at the front page banner or the actual page for the drill.

This is £44.99 at Argos so at £32.98 (inc the £2 quidco) this is HOT

No, it's not. The price in B&Q for that X100 set is £24.98 because In got one yesterday under the price matching system ;-)

Great find, thanks! H&R added :-)

I have this drill, it's pretty good for the price, though a bit lacking in power. Good for everyday DIY tasks.

I'm put off that the Drill does not have a Hammer & only 1 speed.

Not much point having a hammer action at 14.4V as it would lack the power to be effective

I've been to look at this and decided not to buy it, it's very small and you'd never use it to drill anything serious. Still gutted I missed out the Ryobi twin set a couple of weeks ago. Funny that now the offer is over they've got plenty of stock!!!

That's totally untrue. I've used a 14.4v hitachi with a good titanium bit and it'll go through red brick without any problem. This one would be hard pushed to drill through wood from the look of it.

No variable speed? That's me out then. Thanks.

Thanks for the post though matto, rep left: )

So this drill....will it be OK for "standard stuff" like fixing up blinds, curtain rails etc?

Know nowt about drills, and just bought a new house!

It'd be ok, but a variable speed one with a hammer function would be much better.

amazon.co.uk/Dra…-13

A little more money but gets good reviews and would probably be more useful.

What would you use the hammer function for? (sorry to be dim!)

amazon.co.uk/Bos…-16

Only one battery, but you'd have to want to do alot with it to need 2 batteries.

Imagine as you're drilling, someone whacking a hammer on the back of the drill. You'd go through the wall easier/quicker wouldn't you?

Sure, but usually when drilling a wall you need a few holes to support whatever you are attaching - use a power drill or you will be there all night... this is designed for light use don't mislead people

See from 1:46 that a cordless hammer drill can go quite nicely through stuff.

bosch-do-it.co.uk/bop…GB&

"Bosch Electronic speed control: "accelerate" from 0 – max. using the trigger switch"

I presume this isn't the same as variable speed?

Ehhhh that Link is to a Top of the range Cordless drill that is 21.6v, Multi speeds & a hammer.....So no point in looking at that drill & saying it will do the same as this Bosch. :thinking:

It has variable speed in that it has a trigger, so you can squeeze at different levels to speed up/down. While it's not an exact science it's good enough for me personally. Went through 10" of tile and masonry with it last week with a tile bit with only a bit of brute force!

If you look at the link pick closely on the B&Q site, it has variable speed
it has the numbers 1 through to 10 so you twist the "cuff" to add motor speed.

first rule Never believe the spec written by some harassed or not bothered in house web guy, they don't care, I used to have to get a good friend of mine to change loads of items on the basis of his guesswork, or inability to ask...
Latest example is with the marketing dept of a big modelling clay firm, the longstanding product comes in a box of 5, ..has done for years, but marketing did not know nor cared, so put min order qty down as six! .. & so on!!!!!!!!!
now everytone has to buy 1 box +1 extra (more work for pickers & packers) ..as marketing are lazy overpaid *****!

OK like some people are starting to point out,That this drill does In fact have 10 different Speeds.I've just taken it out the Box & can also confirm this, But why no hammer ? It's like having a Big Busty blonde all over you, Only to realise you can't rise to the occasion.

The numbers 1 -10 will be torque settings.

The 2 of them have nothing in common except the word "Drill".That drill will cost 4-5 X's more than this drill, So to say See from 1:46 that a cordless hammer drill can go quite nicely through stuff. is not relevant to this Bosch drill.

Just my Opinion thou.

+1


description states that it has 10 torque settings.
