yeah toolstation was the 796 model, more metal on the case and the 3 position light. Even though a 4AH batt is bigger, just be aware it's heavier, so 2x2AH especially for DIY use can sometimes be better. With the faster charger 2AH charges in under an hour and you're unlikely to run a 2AH down in that time with DIY.
Someone said this to me last week, I"m pondering the same thing. 20 donuts for a quid isn't good if you can't eat them all.

Not a bad price, paid just over this from toolstation when the AUG19 discount code was on last month (expired now) for the next model up.

He was probably a very slim man. That is a terrific proverb though. The main reason for 4ah batteries are for the other tools, a 2ah doesn't last long in the 2 battery chsinsaw / or the single battery circular saw. If you aren't planning to get more than the drill driver / impact driver for odd jobs around the house the 4ah is unlikely to be necessary. Unless you're drilling 20 10mm x 10cm holes into granite you're unlikely to wear out the battery before the next one is charged.

Plus you could share the donuts with some mates.
cracking deal 😵
20 donuts for a quid is good value, even if you can't eat them all.
They are 20p each usually so you only need to eat 5 for a regular deal and 6 is a 20% gain. A good deal in anyone's book.
Was looking at getting a decent drill and looked at this offer, but then found for a bit more you could get Drill and impact driver

Worth it or is the drill by itself a much better one?

Tricky to answer that because only you know what you’ll be using them for.
Impact drivers are great - I’ve got one but in honestly I use it rarely because I’ve not really had much use for it - my Combi drill does 95% for around the house DIY.

If you plan on doing a lot of timber projects in particular then yes the impact driver will help with that extra torque if not then it’s more then likely just a combi drill will do what you need it for.

Thanks for your reply, I think the only main difference is the battery size you are paying for with the single drill, and if i was to purchase the set so drill and impact driver it has smaller battery size but i could always upgrade them later if needed as all RX batteries fit Also im planning to be bolting together timber sleepers in the garden and few other projects so might go with the set. Shame its only a £10 off on that. Cheers for the help.
I have this with the 2.0a batts, i only have 1 in use as it last ages, best battery drill i have owned, done a fsir amount of work with it, only downside, case is crap, you can not put anything else in it, my old Black and decker had compartments for drills, driver bits, raw plugs etc
Any experts out there? Am I right in thinking the higher the model number the better the Drill?

It seems so. The 796 has more metal casing and is the XR range. Some also have metal chucks.
the 9xx range is much more expensive with side handles etc.
hard to follow ranges these days, makita is even harder
Here you go 776 is the crappy more bulky one with only 42 torque
screwfix.com/p/d…10p

it seems 77 is the non xr range

79 is XR with more metal

hooe this helps
