I’ve got a lot of DIY to do in my garden over the coming months. Can’t decide between getting a combi drill like this or a lot which would also include an impact driver. Any advice?

If you have to drill pilot holes than use screw I would advise drill driver and impact- if you have 2 tools you don't have to change between drill bit and screwdriver bit -save lots of time.
But impact driver is VERY strong.

Thanks. Yeah, I think it would be a good idea to get both as I will be chopping and changing between drilling and screwing. Keep looking at this kit for £150 screwfix.com/p/dewalt-dcz298s2t-gb-18v-1-5ah-li-ion-xr-cordless-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-pack/9801t

The one I listed it better, it has more torque

Ok thanks 🙏
Not a great price. I bought the DCD796 with a 4ah battery, charger and case for £133 by buying everything separately. You have to do a lot of searching and buy the items from different places but you get a far better drill and the faster charge.

How, where? Care to share the places you got them from?

Good question above but is it £30 worth better? I have been fancying the screwfix set for £99 for a while. Is this worth the difference
Also listed drill has 2 x 3.0Ah li-Lon batteries which make all the difference with heavy duty work.

The only difference is they last a little longer. They make no difference to the performance of the drill. With 2.0ah batteries the second battery will still charge faster than you could use the first one in this drill.

This isn't brushless, the one listed is. That's the most significant difference.
Interesting regarding the battery’s

Interesting regarding the battery’s [Video]


Sorry but much of that video is complete nonsense. The amp hour rating of a battery has zero effect on the power, the power is measured in volts. It's also pretty clear that the 2ah battery he uses is MUCH older than the 4ah battery.

I've saw a video review on YouTube where they show a Dewalt brushless impact driver powering in a very large coach bolt into hardwood much further using the 5AH battery than when using the 2AH battery, apparently it's something to do with sustained voltage delivery that the 5ah can manage and the smaller battery can't.

Something like that would obviously drain a battery quite quickly, therefore the 5ah would clearly last longer. Although I have to say, I have the 2 most recent top spec Dewalt impact drivers, and there's no way on earth they could drive a large coach bolt into hardwood. An impact wrench maybe? At the end of the day, the drill listed is suitable for medium duty DIY use so is unlikely to be worked seriously hard for sustained periods.
It’s £199.99
