DeWalt DCD776 18v Combi Drill / Driver, Battery, Charger & Case £87 C&C at B&Q

Found 20th Mar
Granted the lower-end of DeWalt, but a viable "pro" alternative to the usual sub-£100 DIY drills, and with DeWalt's standard pro-use 3-year warranty when registered.

It's actually only £85 delivered on Ebay with (assuming the description is accurate) a slightly higher capacity battery, but as HUKD don't trust you to make your own purchasing decisions this deal got pulled down when I listed it.

Yeah I know. I just thought it might be worthy of consideration to those looking to spend £50-£60 on a DIY jobber. It was actually the ebay deal that I wanted to post up, but HUKD pulled it as usual.
You're always best buying the bare unit and buying at least a 4ah battery. 1.3ah batteries are woeful even for diy'ers. If the DeWalt 4ah battery is out your price range then you can buy compatible Floureon batteries on Ebay. Most people have the chargers already.

Then again there's a case for just buying a bog standard drill from Screwfix if you are just an occasional diy'er.

Good shout though for the drill.

Why is it. I've got this and don't see any issues.
You have to wonder how much of this price is for the drill kit and how much for the brand name. I have no doubt it's better than some of the cheap stuff, but some of that is really pretty good too. Worth putting HAMMER drill in the headline too OP!

Anyway, hot for the people who are only confident in a brand name.

That's what "combi" denotes

For me it's confidence in a warranty. People don't back things they expect to fail, it's not a viable business model. So to give something a 3-year pro warranty is a statement that it is highly unlikely that the product will fail when being used day-in, day-out in a professional environment. Transposed to DIY usage, and it will likely last a lifetime.
Conversely a lot of cheap DIY tool "manufacturer's" work on the basis that, although not built to last, many will see so little use that they won't fail until out of warranty.

Yes, I know but not everyone does - you may be underselling it. Does it have metal gears?

I believe it does
Link to ebay one please
Thanks mate
Dewalt combi drills are great. Ive used various models over the years and never had a problem. Bags of power even with the smaller 1.5ah batteries.
Screwfix have this drill but with 2 X 1.5ah batteries for £89.99 screwfix.com/p/d…10p
