You can get the awesomely powerfull and compact fully professional brushless Dewalt DCD796N bare for just £66, 4 ah batt for £44, fast charger for £24 on Amazon and then put the £15 you save towards the equally brilliant 3 speed DeWalt DCF887N impact driver for £88. Light years away from this bulky outdated and underpowered kit. This kit is false economy.

for DIY only, I actually bought a lidl parkside 20v drill and extra battery & charger, was £39.99 for drill battery charger in case and £16.99 for second battery & charger. No use for proffessionals but ideal for heavy diy use. 3 year warranty.
If you bought this you could probably ebay the DCF885 bare for the £50 back

If you see something you like at Toolstation. If you spemd over £100 you can use the code JAN18PROMO for £15 off
Got these when on offer last year. Absolutely brilliant. Helped me quickly put up a deck, fence, kitchen cabinets etc etc.

Well worth it
Ok for price, shame low amp (1.5)

Depends what you need it for. I use the drill very rarely as a DIYer. The impact driver is fantastic for me and works great
I have it in my head to buy some tidy drivers etc, but im leaning towards picking up 18v makita as easier to step into their X2 system, and don't think they that much of a step down from the dewalt, just seem better value to me because of this for DIY. Anyone got experience of this cross over with the electric tools batteries, or any thoughts about it ? I had ordered these

hotukdeals.com/dea…739

But as sonnenblume points out you have to buy a much more expensive battery type for it

I use an impact driver all the time in my work, the Dewalt I use has 3 power settings, can use it on delicate kitchen cabinets as well as driving 4" screws into timber joists with zero effort. Until you have used one you don't know how great they are. You are confusing impact wrench (mechanic) with impact driver (tradesman).

Ordered 👌🏻 nice one. Been waiting for a deal on the 18v twin pack. Heat
The impact driver is for driving larger screws in ...although this is is the lower end of dewalt impacts it still packs quite a punch ...ive used mine framing walls with 4x2 all day ..week in week out ...even bought a spare but haven't killed the first one yet ... the t-stack box is worth 25 quid ... this is the bottom end kit but will do the job for DIY and semi pro use ...i would recommend and yes..i do have the heavier dewalt gear ...even the 18v impact gun that will sheer 10mm bolts in half with 900lbs of torque and undo wagon wheel nuts ..horses for courses..and for the money this is a good deal IMHO

If that's the case you could swap out the drill driver for the impact driver mentioned in my post and have a vastly superior kit than the one on offer here for £6 more.

Explain that maths to me? your suggestion is over £222 way more than this kit at £150 and you only priced in one battery. This kit is fantastic value. You will get better kit if you pay more, but your suggestion is £100 more with two batteries. Thats a lot more

£88 ( DeWalt DCF887N) + £44 (1x4AH batt) + £24 (fast charger) = £156

1 X 4ah battery is > than two 1.5ah batteries.
Needs some advise guys...I’ve just bought this (for basic diy around the house) :

screwfix.com/p/d…44f

Should I keep or exchange it for this?
What's the best 18v impact driver,there's so many models and tbh most look very similar...don't need batteries as I have the dewalt 18v impact wrench with 5Ah batteries for car work which is ridiculously powerful, pulls 32mm driveshaft hub nuts off in seconds lol

I'd be tempted to change if you can...is it the same drill?..you have a bigger battery with your current one but you could always pick one up later if needed.
I bought the Bosch blue, on the offer at B&Q ...think around £80, nice bit of kit, no regrets from me...if that helps

I'd take it back and get what I posted earlier. For basic diy around the house you won't need the impact driver.

You can get the awesomely powerful and extremely compact fully professional brushless Dewalt DCD796N bare for just £66, 4 ah batt for £44, fast charger for £24 on Amazon. It lasts forever on a single charge with it's efficient brushless motor.

All for £134

I wondered that but I bought this kit. Used it yesterday for a screw I could not get out of a wall. It was too tight and every time I tried by hand the screwdriver slipped in the slot, starting to round off the screw and screwdriver. Thought I might need mole grips. Used the impact driver and it came out like a dream. Its like a hammer drill but the percussion is in a rotary direction meaning the screw doesnt "cam out" but hammered out. I would say I am more impressed with the driver as a useful DIY tool than the drill. Many times I have struggled to get screws in or out causing the screw slot to round off. I imagine my frustration levels while screwing with this in my hand will be much less.

An impact driver will do everything a driver will do... but louder.

In all seriousness, they're just ideal for screwing into tough materials, where a normal driver might slip and knacker the thread with the screw going nowhere, an impact driver has a hammer action to help drive the screw into place.

Unless you're in a trade, use would be minimal. If you are in a trade, chances are that you already have one.
Not exactly Makita is it. This big American brand puts power before sense. Big heavy drills fractionally more powerful than the Makita equivalent that is lighter and sleaker.
Impact drivers for the professional mechanic who might come across stubborn nuts or driving large screws etc daily and time is money it is an essential. But for the average user putting some release fluid and leave for a bit or drill holes before screwing in has none need for a impact driver.
The cordless drills are powerful enough now any way to do everything except say drilling through tough masonary.

I'm not a tradesman, but I have been swithering about what to get for quite some time now.
I've done a lot of research - but have little practical experience with these tools - but putting some flooring down in the loft for storage has me looking into this.

From what I've found, it seems that Impact drivers may well be the generally more useful tool, than a drill.
Anecdotal (I know) but from what I've picked up online, most people spend more time putting in screws etc, than they do drill.
Which suggests a more specialised screwing tool would be more appropriate.
And given that there are a relatively new range of products out (ie hex drill bits) it seems that the manufacturers are open to the drivers being used as drills, and not just drills being used as drivers.
Impact wrenches on the other hand seem to me to be just a bit more specialised - much higher torque even than the impact drivers.

My issue is that right now an impact driver seems to be the tool I need for the specific job I'm doing - but should I get the Miwaukee M18 Fuel driver, or the DeWalt DCF887 - and where are the cheapest places to get this stuff.

I'm not so bothered about a kit as 1) kits tend to have a slightly bloated price due to the bundled case (which may be a decent idea, but also may not) 2) the kits tend to include the standard chargers, not the rapid chargers - again reducing the "value" of getting a kit.
As it is, I reckon I could pull together a kit from a few sources with one 2ah battery for the Dewalt for just £126.
And the Milwaukee with a 1.5ah battery for just a little more.

I have a feeling that as I move forward, and potentially adding to my tool collection, the DeWalt may be the better shout - they're generally cheaper tools than Milwaukee, but still well thought of, and possibly a wider range to choose from (maybe) - but with regards to the impact driver itself, the DeWalt's seem to have a much wobblier chuck/collet than the Milwaukee - and if on the short term I plan on using the driver as a makeshift drill (with the appropriate Impact ready bits), this could be an issue that will annoy me - though in practise may be a non-issue - I don't know...

I get most of my tools on Ebay or Amazon, many of the same suppliers are on both sites but their Ebay versions are often cheaper. Don't worry about warranty as all offer 3 year manufacturers on registering. The Milwaukee is a very good tool by all accounts with a more accurate 4 stage power level than the Dewalt, but it is more expensive along with the batteries. I have the Dewalt and it's excellent, (no wobble on the collet and the one hand quick release best in the business) the 3 power settings allow impact driving in delicate and tough materials, in fact I rarely use 3 as it's brutal and for the most demanding work. One reason I chose Dewalt over other makes was their cordless jigsaw and planer which are some of the best on the market and the best value. Batteries are some of the cheapest too and after my Makita battery failures due to their microchip fiasco and refusal to replace without a receipt I jumped ship.

You can get the DeWalt DCF887N with 4ah batt and charger for about £152, the bigger battery is recommended if you expand your kit, the jigsaw, circular saw, planer etc all really need that extra runtime from 4ah - 5ah batts.
