Excellent value bundle ...gets my heat

Very cheap, but 1.5ah version batteries?

I suppose the main market for this would be DIYers who can get the "pleasure" (for want of a better term!) of using something more premium branded than the usual Challenge, Worx, etc for very little money.

For that purpose, heat added. Wouldn't entertain 1.5ah on a site, though.

Sorry, edit to above. See this has 2x batteries with it. Simply can't go wrong at this price, considering that. Good deal.

Great lil set to have. Heat from me

What is the shelf life of these batteries?

Every DeWalt tool I have ever had has been rubbish. Barge poles come to mind.

I concur also

Cold as 10.8V

I would urge caution on this- my apprentices 18v version burnt out removing a few easy bolts- makita do far better drills in my opinion in a similar price bracket

For those that don't want/need an impact driver, how does this compare as an alternative:

I have an 18V DeWalt Combi in this range that has been excellent driving coach bolts into sleepers.

Sometimes you live with what tools you have & don't miss ones you never had. I bought an Impact driver two years ago & if I had to start over the first item I would buy is an Impact driver. Puts screws in & out much better & quicker than any drill driver. For the majority of jobs the Impact Driver is far, far superior. There are some jobs it can't do but very few & with this pack you have the drill to do that.

I would steer clear

I would steer clear of Bosch, look at Makita instead. I've bought several Bosch tools over the past 2 years for light DIY as i've always heard Bosch were good quality, all but 1 has been back for repair.

An impact driver is really useful though, helps get really tight screws out with no trouble

Impact driver is the best part if this kit. I couldnt live without one now.

I have this same kit and it is great. I have no complaints whatsoever and would happily buy again.

Great for fitting kitchens, ceilings, plasterboard. Pretty much anything that doesnt require hammer action.

Couldn't be without my impact driver, but the torque on that is quite low. Okay for light work, but if you're getting an impact driver, I'd suggest something with more power.

The batteries won't last long, so it's good you have 2. If you have to drill into hard wood it will take the power out the battery rapidly, I can get around 1 hour or so from countersinking, pilot and drilling into loft boards and into the loft joists before having to switch the batteries.

However, that being said, brilliant powerful drill that makes easy work of most things.

Just make sure you're next to a continuos power supply otherwise get better batteries.

Never had a problem with mine. Handles everything ive thrown at in the the year or so ive had it.

Also, get the extended 3 year warranty from dewalt with this as far as i know. So for the price you're getting a pretty good deal.

I'm sure you haven't. But it still doesn't alter the fact that it's quite low for an impact driver.

As a electrician I can say these are one of the best purchased I have made, the battery's last forever, the impact driver is ideal for screwing 1"1/2 8 screws, drill is great for cutting 20mm 25mm hole cutter, brilliant piece of kit

How is this any different from Makita combo kit 10v?

Nothing that would leave the average diy'er wishing they'd bought something with a bit more torque.

But you make a fair point.

As far as i can tell, both very similar. Just a preference on what brand you go for.

The dewalt has a 3 year warranty, not sure about the makita. Im sure someone on here does though.

Not much. Price similar. Cons =1.3ah batteries, white is Makitas "budget" build.

Pros = sold by Amazon, one might prefer the slender batteries for certain situations (can't stand them up though!)

The Bosch is nice (they pioneered that shape and ultra low weight platform) but, as others said, once you use an impact driver there's no going back for a great many applications!

Just for reference, if in the market for an impact driver and not too hamstrung by cost, Panasonic are the best, bar none. Especially as they've up graded their line to dual voltage (accepts 14.4v and 18v) and the batteries are now 4.2ah. I must own about £15-20k worth of cordless tools, and the 14.4v lithium Panasonic impact I bought on the first day of its UK release a few years ago is the best purchase of the lot.

White is just a colour option that Makita offer on some of their products. I wouldn't call the DHP456RMWX a budget drill.

Spot on - Makita introduced white to celebrate their anniversary. They have carried it on for some tools.
As has been commented above this is the 10.8v dewalt set, so wont have the same torque as the 18v sets. I have the Makita 10.8v and the Makita 18v set, they are used for different jobs. If I could only have one set, it would be 18v. Less of a compromise, plus loads of other tools in the range use the same batteries.

3 year Warranty if you register them on dewalt site

Im on my 2nd set of these 1st set got stolen out van along with my tools and after buying a basic set of tools to get me by i bought these for £150 and if i lose them tommorow ill be buying another set i use them constantly as an electrician

I've got this set up after reading the very positive write ups by customers; many of they trade.
I was saving up for a 18v set, but then I read the write ups for this on Screwfix.

Awesome set. Had these for a year. Purchased at £200. Can't imagine needing more torque from the impact driver -- holy crap that thing is powerful. Drill also kicks butt. Great for more advanced DIY as well as everyday stuff. Makes doing those jobs a pleasure. Have not had a problem with battery life.

So after all is said and done. Is this a good piece of kit for a guy who finds no pleasure in DIY and needs to hang a few shelves and pictures ?

Picked the last one up yesterday evening from the Livingston store. Very happy with it, especially compared to the Ferm 18V NiMH cheepy I bought from Amazon a few years ago (batteries died recently, other than that it was ok if a bit heavy). The impact driver as immense torque, I can't imagine anything domestic it couldn't handle.

I've gone ahead and bought the reciprocating saw that uses the same 10.8v battery, saw a few reviews on Youtube, again it looks good enough for household jobs.

BTW, both the drill and driver have the mounting points for the belt clips but they're not supplied, I found them here on ebay. A bit expensive for all they are, don't think I'll bother but might be of interest to others.

I've got the impact driver already and its fantastic, one of the tools I've ever bought. Fantastic for kitchen fitting

Cheeeeers op. Just got mine. Could someone confirm who has this also, were the drills wrapped in anything or just lying loose in the box? thanks

Not entirely correct. Upon their conception (anniversary notwithstanding) the white Makitas niche market was usually providing less amperage in a cheaper package, sometimes coupled with more compact designs.

Think along the lines of Bosch green and Blue, but with differences not so pronounced. The whites would often feature cost savings on internal components, but with quality still kept high enough. That's why I used the word "budget" in inverted commas.

To confuse matters, there are indeed now sometimes simply white colourways of the teal models, and the differences now as compared to 2008/2009ish are often less clear, but as a rule of thumb you will find one or both of the following to be true: 1) the white models (even relatively expensive ones, like the drill model linked to) will usually have a superior teal option available; 2) the whites will offer more options in lower amperage and price.

In short, look at the lower end of Makitas line according to spec, power and price, you'll see more white. Look to the upper end of same, you'll see more teal! :-)

Regardless of these facts, they are all good tools more than capable of professional duty work, something that one could not perhaps say about Bosch's green.
