Bought one yesterday, seemed like a pretty good deal. They had the same drill with 3Ah batteries on offer just before this came up, but honestly it comes with two batteries of decent size and for £30 less it was a no brainer. I used the money I saved to get the better quality dewalt bit set.

Seems all round a better deal than the Bosch and Makitas in this price range, better torque and it has the work light.
Wouldn't use them again - I just collected a mitre saw I bought from them, wasn't reduced, full price, I opened it as soon as I got back as it looked like it had been opened and taped closed again - obvious now that some bought it before me, used it, then returned it and they just stuck it back in stock! - Absolute joke!

To be fair, it could be that they opened it up to show a customer. Doesn’t mean it was previously used though. Never had a problem with Screwfix at all and I have bought much stuff from them.
What does it mean by brushless?

Brushless motor mate, they are supposed to be more sufficient, more powerful and make less noise.

On most power tools generally the first thing to go wrong is the brushes. Obviously with brushless you don't have that worry. They have a better run time and usually more power too.
Thanks for those explanations

That's a shame. Screwfix is my favourite shop.

Good price for a good drill. Voted hot.

Just got one of these as a belated Christmas present, voted hot thanks. Use screwfix all the time and have never had any issues apart from with dodgy delivery companies. They've been great when I wanted a replacement for a reciprocating saw that broke as well. And no, I don't work for them, lol.
Thanks for posting OP - voted hot
I’ve just picked up one of these as my drill died in the middle of a project. Ordered online, got the text 2 mins later to say it was ready to pick up.

So far I’ve been impressed with it. And the dual pack of batteries is great. Powerful enough for my DIY jobs around the house.
Those who got one, what model charger is in your box? Mines 107 and smaller than the slot like it doesn’t fit.

apparengly 107 is 90min, 113 (bigger) is 50min, 115 is 30min.

113 is shown in the photo but the listing does say 90min

Mines the one in the photo which ever model that is.
They all look similar, just the 107 is 2cm smaller (and you can see this when you look at the slots in the case)
The photo has the 113 which charges in 50min
if yours came with the 107 like mine, it charges in 90min
Where are these made in please?

I think it's china. I also bought the one from Wickes with trade discount which is actually a higher model, made in America, metal chuck but it's been out a couple of years. It has a brake which stops sharp and sometimes causes the drill to loose it's grip. It's also slightly heavier and more noisy. I returned it.

The model at Screwfix is new so it must be more refined, it's quieter, lighter, the rubber feels better and even though it's a plastic chuck, it feels robust and has a softer brake. NIce bit of kit. The screwfix weight is wrong, it's actually only 1.5kg with the battery!

My old Makita had a plastic chuck, still going strong after about 8 years, just abit heavy for higher jobs.

Thanks a lot. Do you reckon this is still a good deal considering Lidl will be selling a 20V brushless one with a 5-year warranty for 90 quid?

I always buy Makita or Dewalt for my main tools. Batteries are about £35-£40 each and this has 2, so I think it's a good deal, you can also go back to Screwfix easily with an issue + if you register it's a 3yr warranty.

Lydl parkside or Aldi Workzone are ok if you don't want to pay for a trade renowned manufacturer. I have a breaker from Aldi, a couple of B&Q Makalister and some of Screwfix's Titan for lower use items. Only thing with Aldi/Lidl is they seem to have some in, then they sell out, so I wonder what happens with the warranty. The breaker I have has a warranty form with an import company, so I guess they collect and repair.

Infact, if you didn't need 2 batteries, this looks good screwfix.com/p/e…6fv
