Great value, lightweight lithium technology drill with side handle, LED light and all-metal gearbox. Supplied with assorted bits, built-in spirit level and carry case.

I have similar drill, combi ERH397com .I believe this looks exactly the same. It's a bit on the heavy side but really well made - certainly not worse than all the entry level products from Makita,DeWalts or Hitachi. Performance-wise - very good. 30Nm on the paper is not a lot, however this drill is far,far more powerful than my old 18V B&D.

2 Li-ion battery 1 hrs charger, all metal gearing, decent case and drill bits for £50 ? Great.

Looks like a lot of drill for the money

Looks a cracking deal for the price for the price; 2 big lithium batteries, a 13mm chuck and a locking spindle are very good features at this price-point. I'm sorely tempted but I think the missus would thrash the living bejesus out of me if I bring another drill home.

No hammer?

combi version is cheaper

combi = all drill driver's features + hammer action for drilling in concrete. Tbh I do not use it as sds drill is incomparably better for drilling in stone.

So what? pretty much all cordless hammer drills are crap, even SDS.

Edit: probably a bit harsh actually, cordless hammer has it's place. I've spent today with my cordless SDS actually, because I needed to drill into brickwork gently so as not to pulverise it, to put some new gate hinges in (wired SDS can be pretty brutal and unforgiving when you're working near edges).

I take it's up to the single impact force. There are cordless drills delivering 3J and corded with less than 1J. I use small corded Hitachi sds around the house (Hitachi DH22PG, 1.7J only) and so far I have not faced any obvious issues with bricks splitting...but who knows

I've got numerous erbauer tools and can't complain about any of them even out done some of my dewalt tools heat added at 50 quid

Noooooo I cant buy anymore tools.the mrs will kill me

decent for the price,heat added

I've got a similar spec'ed Erbauer liion 18V combi drill, and its been great - the spare battery charges faster than the one in use wears out, so you're never stuck without power. Shame there's no hammer action - if you've an old house made of proper hard bricks, not breeze block, you'll struggle.

Sure this isn't a hammer drill ?

Why would they supply masonry bits if it wasn't !

For drilling into relatively soft masonry I suppose?

Actually it doesn't state the drilling capacity into masonry on the spec sheet so no hammer like the other cheaper version.

If this is anything like the impact driver I have it will be brilliant bit of kit. quite like the erbauer stuff even for a tradesman my impact seems to have more power than my mates makita impact drill. I am just waiting for a 18v grinder from them but it's looking unlikely they'll release one

Thanks OP ordered

My Hitachi cordless is certainly not crap when it comes to drilling masonry. That said it's not an entry level one, can't remember the model now.

If I want to do lots of drilling into our Fletton brick walls, or if I need say a 15mm hole then I will get the SDS out. But for just a couple of 6mm holes, or if I'm away from a power source, then it's a damn sight quicker and easier to use the cordless. So I would only ever buy a combi cordless from now on.

The product description doesn't say anything about masonry bits only HSS which are for drilling metal, and wood - though proper wood bits work better.

& having used it for the past 2 days is a very good product & was recommended for my needs as bettrr than this one. still a hot deal though even if its the normal price.

Agreed, although for a 6mm hole - I probably wouldn't even bother getting the SDS out

As a general rule, most wired SDS drills will have circa 4 times the power of cordless (e.g. 1.7J vs 8J), that's all I meant. Not to mention that a cordless SDS can chew through batteries at a quite alarming rate. If you've got a reasonable size job to do, a wired version will let you finish in a fraction of the time a cordless one will.
Anyway, getting way off topic

thanks
