B&Q (Old Kent Road) Ryobi twin pack 14.4V cordless drill + driver + 2 x li-ion batteries + charger for £35

Found 4th Aug 2014
While it's not a top of the range Makita, this seems like a pretty good deal for a 14.4V li-ion cordless drill (CHI-1442P) + 14.4V li-ion cordless driver (CHD-1441). Pack also includes 2 li-ion batteries and a charger. They had about 6 on the shelf when I was there (around 2pm today, August 4th). Only 1 was marked at £35, others had £199 RRP stickers on them which might put people off. Went through till at £35. Was located with some other power tools in the clearance section.

Why cold this would be a great deal if it was national?

You are just lucky! I went in early morning and came back in disappointment

Looks good. Shame they aren't the wired ones as they are pretty much bombproof from what I've seen!

great price and you can spend what you saved on a 4.0ah battery which are blooming awesome

Not as good as a Makita, true - but Ryobi are a very decent brand of tool. Amazing deal for the price - bet these didn't hang around for long.

Any chance of giving me the EAN so I can check my local ?

Thanking you.:)

i got two couple of hours ago it is in clearance section.

I wasn't sure how good the Ryobi brand was, but have since found out it's a Japanese company set up in 1943, so they've been around a while! The build quality is excellent, far better than my previous no-name cordless drill. The only issue might be trying to get additional 14.4V batteries, but hopefully the two supplied li-ion batteries will last a few years.

I have several One+ items , circular saw, jigsaw, drill, impact driver, torch, handvac, multi tool, I really rate them but as I mentioned further up, your best money will be spent on 4.0ah batteries, they really are worth it, more power and for longer.

I had a look for the 4Ah battery, but could only find the 18V version. I don't think there's a 4Ah available as a 14.4V battery.

blimey excuse my not reading properly, I saw the 2 green drills and automatically assumed they were the 18V One+ [note to self read all the thread]

Been to my local tonight and picked up...

Ryobi LCS-180 18v Circular Saw £25 (Ex Display)
Ryobi CAP-1801M 18v Angle Drill £19 (New)
Ryobi LRS-180 Receprocating Saw £23 (New)
Performance Power PRO1020 Router £15 (New)

The circular saw may go back as it is missing the blade/blade screw and washers, the assistant said it would be okay of I couldn't get replacements to return it.

Cheers, will have a look at 7 tmrw in my local, there late getting the clearance items out due to stocktaking on Sunday night.

If these are anywhere near the quality of my 24v Ryobi SDS they will be a decent add to the tool collection

What's the makita ean

Cheers

Was they all in the clearance section or on the shelf? I went 2 diff B&Q's both were rubbish

Old Kent Road? Get 200 for passing Go, 35 on the drills. 165 pounds up on the day.

Lot of clearance stuff at parkhead store Glasgow. didn't see any ryobi but had a couple of makitas and a lot over mcalistar 10.8v stuff. looked like there was plenty of ex screwfix stock too

Got a set of these at a store in Bristol, it was the only one on the shelf. Lucky I got there early. Another store that opened later had no tools and was crap. I'm surprised anyones still finding any of these clearance drills, most of them disappeared within half an hour of opening where I found mine.

Nothing in Swansea Morfa this morning. Mostly toot. There was a single drill driver that came without a battery @ £23 and that was open box.

Just checked at B&Q Consett and no power tools in the clearance there just to save anyone a wasted journey

I've got the Makita onesw like this, cost an awful amount of money but is the most used DIY powertool I have so the spend was very justified. Being a DIYer rather than a pro, this would have been perfectly adequate for me so this is a HOT deal if you can get it.

Well done, they only had a ryobi torch at mine which I picked up for £9, will wait till tomorrow and pop in again as the clearance items are still being bought out till then.

It is a good deal, but please do be wary of ryobi. I've had 4 circular saws break 2× locked up and 2x just died.

Ryobi really don't seem to be reliable, I also don't know any tradesmen that use them. I'd recommend aeg, makita, bosch and titan. Having said that if you aren't going to use it much then they might be alright.

I have 2 Ryobi impact drivers, a combi drill, cordless circular saw and cordless jigsaw. I have my own building company and they have been worked reasonably hard for the last 4 years without fault. So many tradesmen get hung up on the so called BETTER brands but personal experience has taught me that they aren't necessarily better, just cost more. My business partner has had a Makita set for the same period and we are both still surprised that my Ryobi kit so still going strong and had zero issues.
I'll hold off from being a sheep just yet with the BETTER brands as they have yet to prove to me and my colleagues why they are so much better

Just picked one up at Cardiff pontrennau store, was on a stand with other ryobi stuff.
