Thanks - Mine just died and everywhere else I looked was doing the 12v version for £100

Good deal but would be even better if it was the combi drill.

I'm a locksmith so often run the power out on my main dewalt drill, I have this as a backup drill and it is actually not too bad, will go through steel pins if you have the right bits.

Doesn't quite have the weight of a proper professional drill, but good for the money

Would be perfect for home DIY, hobbies etc.

I managed to bag that one for £40 at screwfix just b4 xmas. mite b worth checking again

not li-ion, old tech. spend more and get a modern combi drill.

B&Q are doing a Makita 18V with 2 x Li-ion batteries for £99 here (10% off if you can get a pensioner to buy it on a Wednesday with their "Diamond" card!)

No idea if its as good a drill as the Dewalt but I've got one and it's great so far!

For £83.77?

Li-ion is the way forward and you're nearly in Makita territory at that price. So that's where my money would go if I were buying!

agreed Scorpion. Any drill purchase nowadays should be Li-on . also personal experience with Makita shows its worth the money and very durable.

I would personally go for the Ryobi B & Q sell with 2 batteries, lithium and about £85

That Makita one is only made for B&Q, so be aware that you can't use the batteries on any other makita cordless tool. It's also only 1.3Ah. The normal 1.5Ah LXT Version that you can switch batteries between tools is £139.99 in B&Q, and at that money i'd pay the £10 extra and get the 18V Li-on Dewalt they also sell. Tried them both and the Dewalt felt sturdier and more "umph", hence I bought the Dewalt and it's bloody great!
If you still only wanted to spend under £100 on a drill, then i'd still steer clear of this Dewalt and the Makita B&Q "Special. Screwfix do a Hitachi 18V Li-on Combi Drill, with 2 batteries and 1.5Ah for £99, and I believe you can still use the code FEB14 to knock a further £10 off making it only £89 for a better drill

Fair point but I don't have any other Makita kit (and don't intend to) and for basic home DIY it really makes no difference to me between 1.3Ah and 1.5Ah - especially as there are 2 batteries in the kit!

Personal choice I guess...

That Hitachi drill looks good until you see the price of spare batteries! The Ryobi is overall better value in my opinion, 50nm torque!

I have 2 reasons why to choose the Hitachi over the Ryobi, the first being that the Hitachi batteries have a bigger Ah meaning they last for longer between charges, and the second being that if they aren't using Dewalt or Makita then all the tradesmen I've seen or used are using Hitachi drills.

I've never seen a professional tradesman turn up with a Ryobi drill, and there has to be a reason other than they didn't really like the Ryobi colour scheme

I think it's the colour scheme personally

Yep I agree on the larger capacity batteries, just when I was looking I decided that if the Hitachi needed a new battery I could almost but I new drill with 2 batteries at that price, which takes the mick abit really, each to their own, I like the Ryobi colour scheme
