Also, for what it’s worth, the OP link is for the one without the battery life indicator (BL1850) The power tool world link is for the BL1950b
Marginally cheaper here: https://www.powertoolworld.co.uk/makita-bl1850-18v-5-0ah-li-ion-battery?gclid=Cj0KCQjw7Z3VBRC-ARIsAEQifZQhELZ_0vwYpRcDn-xdnu9bCjMYgZNYtIEw3YrJfD5mxMfAqnhjvI8aAu4uEALw_wcB
You’d only need to charge this once a year...!
Isnt this average price?
Thanks for sharing your first deal, @LC1990 - nice find! And welcome to the community :)
Cheers mate! Worth waiting for brushless deal or not much difference?
This is brushed
Is this the brushless version or the non-brushless one?
Legend mate blagged one earlier after I was gutted I missed out on Axminster deal by minutes!
Joggler, you are correct. I've just received an email from CNS saying the cashback deal is no longer running for this item and was incorrectly advertised. Apologies for this, I will update the post.
how would this set posted compare to this set on the link makita g series
£150.00 Incl. VAT now
That's a bit condescending. I'm not "in the trade" but I prefer to buy good, durable and effective tools rather than cheap stuff. A good tool is a good tool, whether you use it once a month or every day. If longevity was the only issue, then you might have a point. I bought a cheap SDS drill, because it was only likely to be used for a single job, but all my other kit tends to be DeWalt. And not just because I like the colour. Oops, sorry, I mean the colour doesn't enter into it.
Im a serious DIYer with some commercial use. I have this set and a cheaper 18V set. The Bosch 10.8V is great and dont be fooled by its lower power. The drill will easily go into red brick and i have had no problem driving 100mm screws into wood for framing with the impact driver. Dont get me wrong the 18V is better but you dont always need that much grunt! The reason i got them was due to weight saving over the 18V stuff. Im very happy with them and would recommend to anyone.
Comparing this to an 18v is like apples and pears. This is a specific tool for specific job. Those in the trade will know what im talking about, most DIYers can get away with the cheap B&D drill that will get used once in a blue moon. This is a good deal however and I do have a lot of the Bosch blue 10.8v range. It does crack me up when I see some DIY fan dust off their professional tool to use and it's in immaculate condition, save the money if you don't use it every day like us in the trade.
+Heat. Ordered. Thx.
picture shows 2ah batteries. Love my 18v Makita kit.
It does say 2 X 2.0Ah Batteries on their website (_;) Have some heat.
The kit I picked up had 2ah batteries in :)
actually quite a decent price even if the batteries are only 1.5ah heat
Not sure why this is cold, cheapest price, good reviews, ordered one and arrived next day :)
I got one couple a mths ago DTD146+3.0Ah batt+charger+carry bag for £144 ;)
Looks like the offer is still on, just got myself a nice cheap DTD146z impact driver from there too :)

Sorry looks like there was big demand so the price is back to £78. EXPIRED
This was the lowest it has ever been
Sorry, ignore my last comment. Didn't read that this included a charger. However this has the 4.0ah battery for a few quid more. As far as I'm aware BTD vs DTD is literally just a label change for this model http://www.uktoolmart.com/gb/cordless-kits/30301-makita-lxt-18v-btd146-impact-driver-40ah-battery-bl1840-dc18rc-charger-and-case.html
