None in stock by me unfortunately.

Stock anywhere?

Rebadged B&D and with that spec basically useless I'm afraid.

Out of Stock for Delivery and none near me and the surrounding area

But if you live near chippenham or Weybridge happy days
1 in Stock

Cold. Next post from screwfix with low prices for items only on website

p-e-t-e

Stock anywhere?

1 in Lancaster store nothing else in Cumbria, don't know where you are oO

no stock

I went through all 25 pages of their clearance section.
Tried about 20 products I would have bought.
None in stock on a 100 miles radius of Sheffield
Should report them to trading standards...

Screwfix Wild goose chase again. COLD

No stock please expire

Great drill for the price. Sure it's not going to please the professionals (or the tool snobs!) but for a DIY-er this is a steal (if you can find stock). 2 speed all metal gearbox, speed control, 35Nm torque, 2 x batteries, charger, carry case. Considering a B&D on here at £30 recently got to a few hundred degrees and it was a toy compared to this one I think you guys should cut this deal some slack. Not everyone needs the performance of a £200 professional drill, and for those of you voting cold I'd like to see some suggestions for anything better under £50?

Sadly, no stock in N Wales, though 1 in Aberystwyth. This is a steal if you can find one.

Got one at Cambridge shop.
Was still one at Bedford

£200 will not buy you a pro drill - guess again.

Cheers OP got last one in Crewe good drill already own similar with 1.3Ah batts so that's why I bought this having the 2Ah batts

Good comment. Thanks for the contribution.

How big is yours? I mean wallet, of course.

Managed to get the last one in Stirling, thanks.

smaller after he bought a pro drill, I'd guess



Thanks , but no stock
That is only 12v , is it the torque or the volts that give it the power.
I don't know much about these things

The electrical power is Voltage x Ah - These battery packs are 12V x 2Ah so 24Wh. 18V MAY be better than 12V, but it also depends on the capacity (Ah) of the battery packs. In general you want a high Wh figure - just looking at voltage is meaningless. Anything under 20Wh is quite poor, and over 30Wh is quite good. 24Wh is quite reasonable, especially at this price.

The mechanical power is indicated by Torque (which is a rotational force) x Speed (RPM). (In Watts it's actually torque x RPM/9.55). For screws you simply want a lot of torque, but for drilling you want a lot of mechanical power so it's important to have high torque AND good rotational speed. (You could get high torque simply by gearing but that's useless if it turns too slowly to do any useful work). A high torque figure does suggest though that a drill has a strong gearbox (metal). However a good drill needs good torque and a good RPM too. Anything under 30Nm is quite poor. 40Nm is capable of pulling the heads off some screws. At 35Nm this drill is quite reasonable. I haven't looked at the RPM figures to know how good it is overall.

Thanks for the reply
RPM is
No Load Speed: 0-400 / 0-1400 rpm
Any good

This is fast enough to be useful but what you need to know is the speed performance under load. That would be a graph, which you'd have to go back to the manufacturer's data for.

Note that in this last respect there is no real difference between buying a drill and buying a car. It's all very well to talk about the HP of an engine but to know how it will actually perform you need to know its torque characteristics too. Cars are generally specified for a maximum torque figure at a certain speed but you can usually find a torque graph too.

Thanks I'll have a search about
I am only a casual user but no point buying rubbish

I have an Erbauer 14.4v 2.0Ah batteries 30Nm this screwed 500 65mm decking screws in with no pilot hole on about 2 charges so this being 35Nm 2.0 Ah I should say it would/should do exactly the same, the Dewalt I use for steel drilling occasionally with 1.3Ah batteries and it is ok especially with the low speed.

Got the last one from Banbury yesterday! A good deal if you can find one.

I got one cheers mate its not bad at all for 40 quid

same website is selling it on ebay for £151.99 strange

Just a heads up

This appear to be back in stock at some stores - my local and all the closest ones in the area were out when i checked last week. Now 3 have stock, although only 1 per store.

Hth


Cheers

G

these are back in stock!! I just bought one from orpington but there is still 1 in charlton!! se london

Just bagged one thanks OP

can't see stock anywhere. Could really do with one of these
