Absolute bargain at that money.
Nothing beats it at this price and great specs. Get it bought if available.

I've no idea, but the tradesmen I know all swear by Makita? Does anyone know how they stack up?

You will get people who prefer Dewalt and people who prefer Makita both are very good makers of drills/tools.

I work on building sites and i see more people with Dewalt boxes than i do Makita .

Very comparable to be honest.

I see you've got the dewalt cordless!!

I thing the below offers a better deal as its the same drill, but also has hammer action too.
DCD785C2 for £133.56 from Amazon
Also includes 2x 1.5Ah batteries, charger and carry case

You seem somewhat confused. What do you not get about no hammer action?

What do you not get about saving money for a more useful tool?

Glad to know some people cant read proper

I Have dewalt cordless drills from 10 plus years ago and still working even the batteries still holding charge.

I bought a Panasonic cordless drill about 3 years ago 14.4v li-on 3.0ah batteries and its been excellent only thing I'd say with this deal is the batteries are low ah 1.5

My Aldi drill is great at drilling holes

I've had a dewalt for a few years... Not impressed compared to the Wickes own brand one I had when I got the dewalt...
I'm not kidding either...
Within months of owning the dewalt, it needed a new gearbox after the hammer action failed. Then it happened again after 11 months.
Still works now, but both batteries fairly short life, and the motor has started sparking and smells pretty bad.

The wickes drill on the other hand, helped me build half my first house, was dropped down two flights of stairs, still holds a good charge, still 'hammers', and has never had a single fault, apart form a broken battery clip on its rapid descent down my stairs. Cable ties now hold it in place.

I've dropped a hint to the Mrs for a new drill for Christmas, but told her to avoid the dewalt, I'd rather have a top end wickes own brand. Or maybe a Makita, never had one of those...

Not voting, as this IS a good price for one of these, but don't buy one thinking you are getting a cheap pro level tool. You are getting a cheap tool with a pro name on it.

I own a dewalt 18v the older version with chunky battery for last 7 years, survived heavy diy jobs. it is still good working tool and surprise surprise still the same batteries maybe because I look after them a lot...
2 years ago I bought my dream Makita LXT from screwfix for my father- as occasional DIYer he managed to kill 1 gear on that famous Makita, so only 2nd gear u can use. maybe only personal experience but ->
I am gonna stay with dewalt....

Not a bargain at all, I got my Makita from ScrewFix for a similar price with a single 3ma Li-lon battery (less weight), and 120 piece good quality bit set. Its been exceptional. It has in fact put 99% of Alton Towers Terror Of The Towers audio/Visual in place and still like new. Dewalt are great drills too but you need to wait for the right deal to come up, You will always pay over the odds for them and this deal just doesn't cut it.

BUT they are are a great fashion item on most building sites, even more so if you wear the matching clothes and PPE.
