Shame the batteries are so small, otherwise a good deal

Any other decent drills on offer. Looking something for general use, perhaps putting up a shed, DIY etc?

Great deal. I'd rather have 2 smaller batteries than one - one can be in use while the other's charging, or in a different tool. Not sure about Dewalt, but the smaller capacity batteries are usually lighter too, which is a plus.

Get this

Great deal for a pair of fantastic dewalt products. I started on something similar got a few years use out of them. Now using brushless dewalt. For the money these cannot be beaten. Heat

Or pay double to get 3ah batteries and a brushless set at screwfix. Any battery less than 2ah don't last well when drilling.

Not true. My 1.3ah has been great for general DIY jobs at home. Lasts months without charge and only needs 30mins to charge to full.

A little bit cheaper on

its.co.uk/pd/…htm

I have these, albeit I did get them cheaper a while back. They are excellent and the impact driver is the best thing I’ve bought! Using it now (after me cuppatea) to make a woodstore. It is driving in 120x6mm screws into 75mm posts with ease (some need piloting, as wood is really wet). Is it as powerful as our plumber’s 18v jobby? No way, but very pleased with mine.

My only difficulty is remembering not to push like mad in order to drive screws in!

Agreed, light and easy to manoeuvre - diy, flat pack etc.

Better to spend the other £35 and get the 18v batts

If you want 18v then the Screwfix ones with 3Ah batteries are a better deal - the 3Ah batteries are not much heavier than the older 1.3Ah ones. But this 10.8v set is a different beast, much lighter and hence easier to handle and will get into smaller spaces. For bigger jobs (especially ones needing a hammer drill) the 18v set are better, but for light tasks these are great.


Edit: Sorry, the Screwfix set is £250. I was thinking it was £150, but that's the drill on its own with 2 x 3Ah batteries. But the tools are brushless, so probably still better value than the B&Q set.

I use mine for work. Used a drill once with a 1.3 Ah battery and it lasted 8 holes... Perfectly fine in the impact driver though. If anything buy thus pack and an extra 3Ah battery and it would be a good set.

some reviews a year ago on the website says it cost them 80 quid. i'll pass this this time as I dpnt really need. but interesting thanks

Would have been a mis-price if so. No way these have ever been as cheap as £80. They rarely drop below £140. Perhaps the reviewer meant £80 each.

Bought this about 6 month a ago £85 with my Tradepoint card.
The drill is useless give it to my 4 year old without the battery.
Impact driver very good especially now I have 2 batteries.

Actually, my bad: thought this was the same 18v set I got for £150 a few months ago...

hotukdeals.com/dea…116

I'm no DIY expert but that old deal seems better than this new deal. Unless prices have gone up (thanks again, Brexiteers) it might be better to hold out...

Got me through building an 18ft shed, pretty decent drill and impact set. Batteries on the small side but big enough to get a couple hours of hard use. Probably will upgrade the batteries soon

Very much budget DIY quality - this will be a "made for B&Q" set and not usual Dewalt quality (it's a shame because Dewalt are giving themselves a bad name really). I would sooner pay £150 for a decent model of drill and for that you'll get all-metal gearbox, metal chuck, brushless motor, work light and 2AH batteries. Don't fall for this deal - what do you think you're getting if you get two tools for less than the price of one???

Yeah cause so many people can justify DOUBLE this on a drill set! Hence the heat....

Electrogear you don't know what your talking about.

The 1.3Ah battery size on the original deal worries me as being a bit puny for anything other than fairly light DIY. I have been looking at the Hitachi DV18DGL/JG 18V Cordless Combi Drill on Screwfix for £109.99 which comes with 2 2.5Ah batteries - this seems to be a good trade-off between more battery without too much weight from a 4Ah+ battery.

As has been said, having an impact driver is a big plus if you are doing any kind of serious job. Amazon has the Hitatchi HITWH18DGLJ4 18 V Impact Driver for £59.49.

So for £169.48 you are getting a good combo of tools with 2 2.5Ah batteries. I need to replace my current Hitachi combi drill which has been a good workhorse considering its £100 cost, so no concerns going Hitachi. What do people think about this?

At the moment there seems to be quite a gap between what's on offer at the base sets with 1.3Ah batteries and something more robust around the £250 set referred to by Dodge62.

No, not a misprice. The deal was posted here on HUKD at the time. Here:

OK, missed that at the time. Ridiculously cheap - you'd spend most of that for a pair of batteries. I'd have bought a second set if I'd seen that (so lucky I didn't, as I have absolutely no use for a second set ...)

None in B&Q MK so I went for the makita alternative with 1.5ah batteries for £150.
