Thank you for the correction ! I've updated it.
Just ordered one of these. At this price, for brushless, you can't really go wrong and your unlikely to find anything of a similar spec for this price.

Thanks OP, heat added.
This is great price !

What is brushless?

What is brushless?



The main difference between brushless or brushed drill motors is that the brushed variants are made of carbon while the brushless units use magnets to generate power. ... They come with a fixed stator, which holds the coils and a mobile rotor on which the permanent magnets are glued
The far superior DCD796D2-GB was on here for £138 from Wicks with two batteries around Feb. I'd wait for another deal on that drill.

What is brushless?


See Chuck1985 comment but practically the motor should have a longer life and battery should last longer between charges.
Brushless motors are typically 85-90% efficient whereas brushed DC motors are around 75-80% efficient. This difference in efficiency means that more of the total power used by the motor is being turned into rotational force and less is being lost as heat. Also should be more reliable. Brushes wear out (intentionally as they are soft, usually graphite based) whereas a brushless motor might easily last much longer without all the sparks and failures of a brushed setup. Hope this helps.

Far superior in what way?
Not a great deal for an older model

It's higher up in the range. You can compare the specs on the Screwfix website (or look at some YouTube reviews). The 796 is £299 on Screwfix at the moment but that's a package with two 5AH batteries.

Ah OK mate, I took the plunge for this one as a casual DIY'er.

If the one you mention was offer, I would have paid the extra for it.
65nm great if you want to tickle someone

I'm not 100% but I think the numbers and letters after the 796 refer to the package. So it'll change depending on what case/batteries/charger it comes with. The drill alone is only about 70 quid but the batteries push up the price. 5ah batteries go for about £50 so if you're getting a couple of those expect the package price to be 2-3 times the price of a naked drill. My rule of thumb was to price up the bare drill and a couple of batteries off Amazon. If the package on hot deals was the same price but came with a case and a charger then it was a good deal. On batteries I think the 3ah and 4ah are older models, not bad mind but they're now cramming 5ah into the same size. Personally after doing way too much research I went for a couple of 2ah. A builder will think this is sacrilege but I didn't want to add more bulk to a drill that was already a bit of overkill and it's not like I drill holes all day! 2ah worked out fine for me I screwed down all my floorboards on a single charge.
