Good deal and good timing as I have a £20 off voucher
Amazing piece of kit.
Great drill and good price with the 4.0ah battery, charger and case

Batteries not as good but impact driver included for a bit more... Alternative if you want an impact driver as well and are willing to sacrifice battery capacity... £180 pounds (down from £200).

I don't know enough to compare but they did have the Milwaukee 18V combi drill and impact driver set including two 4Ah batteries for 50 more. I went for that because I'm tired of swapping bits for drills etc and I've always fancied an impact driver. It's gone up to 250 now but I bet it'll be on offer again before long.

Awesome drill I bought the same unit same deal. Good price 🔥

oh you mean this one hotukdeals.com/dea…119

Shame it's not on offer anymore.

Yeah that one. As I suggested, I wouldn't be surprised if the offer came up again. That said, when I said it was 250 now I seem to have been talking bollards. That is for the kit with 5Ah batteries, which must be worth 60 quid each.

I have the smaller 2AH batteries and while they are fine for me using at home (and charge quickly when flat), if I used them for a living I would definitely want the bigger capacity 4AH ones, especially if working outside in the winter.

Great drills though. I have the slightly posher DCF887 impact driver and it's absolutely awesome. Wish I'd bought one years ago.

Yup no brainer
for drilling any lightweight 10.8v will do a job,home or for trader , do not see a point to buy 18v
Is this really over kill for occasional DIY? Though we seem to use a drill every week for one thing or another!
Not the best drill, no adjustable light setting, and a plastic Chuck. But TBF, it's not a bad deal at all

Personally I'd go for the DCD796 ... £140 with 2 x 2.0Ah batteries.

I have one for DIY and it's an amazing drill.

Obviously for the price this is still ok however in reality for DIY you won't really need such large batteries.

Even though I had a 5.0ah battery I went and bought a 2.0ah as it's lighter and does me fine at the minute.

Forgot to add ... DCD796 is a better drill aswell has more torque and a nice 3 setting led torch function.

Is that not from screwfix? Only DCD796 I can see on there is £249 with 5A
I think he means the De Walt DCD796 on offer at Toolstation at the moment (it’s £139.98 down £60 from £199.98).
Should it bother me (us?) these model numbers aren't on Dewalt's site? Or is it another Currys way out of price matching by having unique numbers?

Thanks. Not sure to get this or wait for a drill and impact brushless deal together

Yeah, go for it. I've got a Makita 458 which is a beast but only for DIY. I used to have a green bosch, but made the mistake of borrowing a makita. Couldn't go back afterwards the trade gear is so much better.

Arse, just bought a Bosch drill last week, similar specs, though only 2A batteries. Same price. Damn.

^^ went for this. stronger drill and smaller batteries ideal for DIY. OPs deal also voted hot. Thanks both !!
Cold, bought one from Aldi for 49.99 plus 14.99 for case full of bits, no need to spend more for odd DIY jobs unless you're a tradesman who does this for a living

I was tossing between drills have previously used the 778 but have a look around on reviews the 796 is generally considered to be a much better drill. I ended up buying dcd796 with two 2.0ah batteries for £125. The metal chuck, higher torque smaller in size and general DIY which I do you don't need 4.0ah the smaller batteries makes it more versatile I would go wihh the 796 all day long

Isnt the purpose of hotuk to determine whether a deal is hot or not based on its price? I understand what ur saying but isn't there always a cheaper brand than the recognised dearer well known brand. That would render majority of the deals cold. The voting is based on whether its a good deal not if its good for DIY or tradesman

It might just be me but i don't really see why you've voted cold when the drill you're talking about is not a comparison to this one. I mean, i could get a drill for £20 but that doesn't mean this isn't a decent price for what it is - which i thought was what this site is based on? If i voted cold on everything that wasn't relevant to me i'd never end up voting anything hot!

Where did you purchase the 796 package from? Many thanks.

When you start using an 18v drill, you might change your mind.


Yes i use 18v dcm133 hammer drill, 18v DFF899N torque impact wrench, 18v dcm848n DA polisher ,18v dcm563 hedge trimmer
still do not see a point with 18v heavy cabinet drill, way better stay with 10.8v as there is nothing on the market You could do better with 18v drill, if i need more torque i use 10.8v impact wrench
