Seems a good price for an 18v hammer drill + 2 batteries

Doesn't say Li-ion so assume Ni-cd, in which case it's not such a great deal.

I have Ni-cd batteries with my drill and they hold their charge for months in the garage, and they last a decent amount of time when I use them, I've never run out of battery power, as the spare battery is always charged anyway.

Although, I don't use mine for 8 hours a day, it's just for the occasional shelf, or curtain pole!

Li-Ion Batterys are terrible. Iv had to return TWO drills this month cos of Battery failure.

Never had to returm a Ni-Cd my ten year old ones still rock out.

So your comment is void

Yay ive been waiting for this offer to come back again have some heat.

Same price from screwfix if that's easier for anybody.

You're responding to a point I didn't make!

I didn't say they don't work - I said it's not such a great deal BECAUSE Ni-Cds ARE CHEAPER!

But since you've raised the point, your personal experience isn't necessarily typical and is contrary to the general view.

For what it's worth my drill has x2 Ni-Cds too, but they are larger capacity and I didn't pay anything like £99 for it. Good drill though.

The batteries are 1.3Ah Ni-Cad (model DE9098).

It al depends what you want to do withthe dril in my opinion. I have bought ancheints 12v dewalt drills that are lght and powerfull enough to screwing stud walls together albeit thebatteries dont last that long. The plumber I use has one dril. Its a 24v cordless. He works with that all dau and is his only drill. So it goes back to what you use it for, how often and to what degree,For a n acrive diyer it might be ok but the batteries are light. I suppose at the end of the day yo need to find your tool usuage and pay for accordingly. Pay cheat sometimes means paytwice but I have a Cheap Tian breaker that cost me 39 quid and has been fantastic. although its finaaly **** with an intermittant fault, Make your purchase to what suits your useage and buyonce.

Mate, there's a big long strip of plastic at the bottom of your keyboard. It's called a space bar and it does what it says on the tin. You might want to consider using it next time you post. The general protocol is to press it once between words and this makes your post readable. You also need to brush up on your spelling and punctuation a bit.

Typing a post on the internet isn't a race, just take a deep breath and take your time.

Your comment is anecdotal... thus is also void.

got one of these for some diy really, had it 2 years now and done hundreds of jobs with it, barn conversion everything so can highly recommend, my dad ended up buying one as did my best mate, at the time B&Q had a 10% off deal ontop of any existing deal so go it for £90
only downside like everyone says is the battery life but it comes with 2, I think you can get better amp hour batteries on ebay for the same unit not that its ever really become an issue.

Just bought a makita 18v drill with accessory set for £114 from wickes. Was pondering this deal but having the accessory set in the same case was a bonus for me, far too many tools as it is.


Screw fix have 10% off until sunday still I think, but you will have to sign up to their emails and hopefully they will send you a code.

Seems a good deal, what is the opinion of Ryobi Stuff ? I have a corded drill and it's great... If it;s comparable to De-walt then this looks a pretty good deal for the same price and as BurningFeetMan says if you subscibe to the email you should have a 10% off code.

I'm a big fan - although our NiCD batteries never lasted long and I havn't been able to find a replacement NiCD for a sensible price (they are different to the ones you've linked to). NiCD should be cheap, Li-ion does cost, even without all the markup, vat etc.

Always look at the cost of replacement batteries, doesn't help if they decide to change their lines.

If you are good with a soldering iron Li-ion is good as the cells are easier to get and are not so often in strange sizes - cheap way to get a new battery (yes soldering on li-ion isnt so simple, blah blah blah)

and what about the Bosch 18V one with 2x Lion for £95 wouldn't this be better? Soo many to choose from !


Is that HEAT20 for B&Q ? can you use it if you are reserving to collect in store?
Edited by: "JP" 30th Nov 2011

This is not such a hot deal, around the same price there are plenty options, including Bosch Li-Ion 2 batteries, Makita etc.

The best deal I think it's the McAllister, 1,5ah Li-Ion, 2 batteries, and a nice led light. 3 years warranty. 60 minutes charger. Price: £75!

Voted cold.

Code doesnt seem to work for me else I reckon I would get my dad one for xmas.

Went into buy one this weekend but came out with the Bosch for £95 on the advice of the guy in B&Q. More powerful, cheaper, lighter and comes with LI-Ion batteries. Tested it out in-store and it felt much easier drilling into masonary. Having said that had a Black Decker with NiCad batteries for a long time without any issues.

That's what I was about to suggest. A quality drill with TWO 18v Li-Ion batteries, you just can't beat that at the moment.

Sorry it's if you are buying it from screwfix, don't forget quidco too. Worth another £3.33

We just got another one of these in work, and they're good drills as long as the battery holds out.

Not sure if it's mentioned anywhere on the description, but there's a little LED light on the front of the drill to illuminate what you're drilling. Seems to be the "add-on" for drills these days. May be useful.

The 18 v Bosch drill that has been posted only has a 10mm chuck - would this be a problem?

I have heard that 13mm is standard so would this mean i have to buy specialised drill bits?

can someone please answer as Im thinking of buying this as a present but want to buy an assortment of drill bits to go with it.

Thanks in advance

13mm is the way forward, 10mm is 3mm smaller!!

Most cordless drills have a chuck that takes up to 10mm so any drill bit from 1mm to 10mm will fit.... obviously any drill bit larger than 10mm won't fit. It seems 13mm chuck size is becoming more common on smaller drills. The chuck ins't one size, it opens to accept a wide range of bits.

I do worry that people who don't know these things perhaps shouldn't be drilling without having a bit of training from someone that's confident in using power tools.
