Great, many thanks. Just ordered.
Just picked one up. Looks ok for around the house.
Hmmm I'm trying to decide if they're the same batteries as my dewalt drill I got a couple of years ago, worth it for a couple of batteries
10.8V... Nah..

Agreed. Not good enough for most things.
This is the non hammer drill right?


it's very unlikely - this 10.8V kit is quite new

Sounds like you haven't used recent 10.8V equipment - I don't have this, but I do have Bosch's 10.8V version and it handles pretty much everything I've thrown at it. I do have a combi though so my kit can manage holes into masonry up to about 8mm which this DeWalt will struggle with. For bigger holes than that I bring out the SDS.

The big advantage of these lower voltage drills is the low weight and compact size. You can use them all day without your arm dropping off, and they fit into much smaller spaces than their larger couterparts They're not really a good replacement for the average DIY-er (who only really needs one low-end 18V combi for occasional use), but for a joiner or similar tradesperson they are an excellent addition to the toolbox.
Just bought one when I went down to buy a chimneys starter for the BBQ. Hoping some input on here will help me decide if I'm going to open it or return it. The display models looked nice and compact so was hoping it would be good for general round the house DIY.
really tempting.... the small size and light weight is yummy
but already have a Ryobi 18v set
Looks a good deal. Heated.
Out of interest, does anyone know the max torque of the drill driver? I couldn't find it in the product info page, it does contain the max torque of the impact driver - 107Nm which is seriously impressive for a 10.8V device.

Thanks for the answer!
Spotted this on an email from B&Q today. Could be tempted to order one at this price...

I have an 18v impacter, 18v combi and a couple of 1.3ah 10.8 combi's. The 10.8 combis get the most use. Granted mainly for screw-driving (smaller, lighter and more than enough grunt for most tasks), but also for pilot holes and light drilling (wood, pvc etc).

Agreed. Not good enough for most things.



Rubbish. I have the makita 10 volts, and it can bang 150mm by 6 mm into joists for hours. I don't pick up my 18 v dewalt often...

Sure, it wont drive a core drill into concrete, but you'd need an sds for that....

And much easier to handle, when you're doing hundreds of screws a day....

Absolute rubbish!
I used a Bosch 10.8v Hammer drill driver years ago when I worked on Maintenance contracts and it went into everything including concrete, probably one of the best drills I ever owned and it lasted nearly 10 years before the battery died a death, so this will easily do most jobs asked of it..
Why is it if a drill isn't 24v with a 3ah battery people on here think it won't drill into balsa wood, it shows there inexperience of using power tools!

I have got a Bosch 10.8v drill and it's surprisingly powerful, I also have a 14.4v makita and I can easily say it outperforms it on battery life and power... Anyone who thinks these 10.8v drills are powerful hasn't tried one.

I really cant see much use for bigger 18v drills with these available. If I had need for a more powerful drill I would be using an SDS for the job.

Heat for the deal, i payed this price for my Bosch 10.8 combi with only 1 battery!

10.8V... Nah..



Why? Perfectly good enough for many jobs. I go to my 10.8v a lot more than my 18v

Thanks OP. picked one/two up today.
Inside the pack was a card which said 3 year guarantee if registered within 4 weeks of purchase via dewalt.eu/3 which I have just done.
You have to register each item separately, and give a trade during the process, retired wasn't available so I just picked something like office administration. It asks for the date of purchase, and from whom it was purchased. Then it asks for the model number, which for the drill is DCD710, (found on the drill plate), as is the serial number, which is a 6 digit number, mine was in the form of 8****7. It also asks for a production date code which is starred as compulsory, but I couldn't find that on the drill plate so I left it blank and it completed OK.
The impact driver model number is DCF815, and serial number 3****3, again no production date code so left blank.
Both now registered and guaranteed until 15/07/2019.

It's fact higher voltage means more torque and high ampere hour batteries means more stamina. Like Scotty would say "ye canny change the laws of physics captain"
Used the drill last night for a small project, I like it.

Installing a CCTV kit today so it'll get more use then.

No but you can use different gear ratios! Most of these 10v drills run at much lower speeds that an 18v drill but for their size they have a massive amount of torque.

Then theres the impact drivers. i have a 12v Milwaukee putting out 130nm...

You will notice that the majorty of those who own 12v tools confirm that they become the go to tools with the 18v being taken out occasionally.

The production date can be found by removing the battery and looking up inside the drill there. Just registered mine in this way. There is a picture of where to look on the registration page but it's not very clear.
if you have a corded SDS and this kit you should cover full range of needs for pretty much everything. i have.
Thanks OP for this. I've been on the lookout for a basic but decent set like this for a few months. As soon as I saw this I went and got it. First impressions are excellent. I had wanted 18v and was a little sceptical about 10.8v but I needn't have worried. More power than I'm likely to need and as I have mains powered hammer drills and SDS drill, this fits in nicely. The stock checker on the B&Q website is not very reliable though. I bought the last one in Wigan last night, just after someone had come from the Warrington store and bought 2. Staff member said they had sold 6 in about 2 hours and had none left now.
With these batteries 1.3ah they a **** I have 1
Just ordered. Hope I've done right! I put these up on a deal not so long ago at £125 and was well received. Someone mentioned Bosch equivalent dropping to £119 on Amazon with 2a batteries, but this has not happened since as I've been watching...and anyway, £40 saving over that price.

Bottom line, chuffed! Many thanks.
i use my mates larger one a lot but wanted a cheap one myself...the impact driver is the best to bang screws in i just got this deal from handforth stannleylands..rang up as it says in stock online but not in stock on checkout...they were willing to sell the display one at a discount price but came across 3 mixed in the the larger drills so just ring up to check if you can,t get one...and see if you can buy the display one..heres a quick video i just done banging a 4 inch screw in my post with the impact drill...remember we get two batteries half hour charge should be great for the homeuser...heres the link

Had the same in Southend. Apparently the stock checker only updates at 11am.

I have a sneaking suspicion they'll be back in stock tomorrow morning!
