Nice bit if diy kit.

Once you use an impact driver there is no going back.
Is the impact strong enough for the car wheels bolt?
Brushless?

That would be an impact wrench rather than impact driver.

No, totally different tool.

No good,it's a driver....it only has a screwdriver bit chuck,you would really be wanting a 1/2" square drive impact wrench ...my dewalt is 950nm,1650nm undoing...will take anything off lol,I've tried quite a few cheaper impact wrenches they just aren't strong enough...the one in that kit is a driver mainly for screws/small bolts/fastenings.

This is what you want...brilliant tool,cost me £269

Impact wrench with a square drive.
Looks a good kit. I've an 18V lithium Erbauer drill/driver that just keeps going. I've done tons around the house with it, including a total bathroom refurb (including replacing the floor and insulating the walls) and a full kitchen install. I got a Lidl impact driver some time back, but rarely use it. I find its just too powerful for most screws. What do most people use them for?

Does it not have torque settings for screws,I use a combi drill /driver....start of lower,turn it up to desired torque setting without over tightening.

When I bought, funnily enough accidentally due to a HUKD deal over a decade ago, a cordless impact driver, I foolishly assumed that because of the rated torque, that wheel bolts would be a doddle. Uhm no, not a chance. You want a corded 1/2" impact wrench for that sort of thing. That said after my initial disappointment with the cordless impact driver I soon found how awesomely useful these things are for removing things like painted over hinge screws, and just driving/removing screws - rather than a cordless screwdriver or drill/driver. I still use the one I bought back then all of the time. If it broke I would scramble to buy another straight away.

I pretty much use my impact every time I'm putting in a screw over 1'' long, it's too powerful for small screws, but comes into its own for say 50mm deck screws, also useful for removing screws with damaged heads.

Brushless?


Brushed....looks a decent kit for the money though...2 year guarantee as well,seems to be getting good reviews.
Nice deal. I think I'd be more inclined to go for the DeWalt offer going currently

I have no idea about Erbauer stuff, because I don't own any, but my Hitachi impact driver is lovely to use. The trigger is incredibly precise. A very gentle pull and the screw will start very gently, a full on pull will whack it in with venom, with everything in between. I'm no tool fetishist, but talking about impact drivers has made me realise - I love screwing with my driver!
Decent price, but I think I'd go for the Bosch twin pack at £125 over this. Tried the Erbauer cordless sabre saw and it doesn't have the grunt of the Bosch, and the blade keeps popping out! Can't fault their drill bits though.

To be fair, Hitachi are in a different league.
These drill deals always look good to me then I read the comments and the conflicting information and evidence from those put me off buying the deal as there never seems to be 100% agreement on the product .....
I want to do some serious drilling into all sorts of masonry. Would this cut it, with the appropriate drill bit? Not so much into screwing things out, just decent power to make holes in masonry please
These looks like the Guild ones I got from Homebase in the clearance about 18 months ago. And I say they are great, and the impact driver is really impressive. I don't know how I lived without one of these. It puts in long screw in no time and great with torx screws. (I only paid £35 for my set when Homebase were nearly giving things away when Bunnings bought them).

You'll always get the 'professional kit' showoffs commenting on tools for amateur use. DeWalt, Milwaukie, Bosch Blue, etc. are complete overkill for the majority of home DIY users and, frankly, much of this decent amateur kit will do the job for the pros too unless they are very heavy users. If you stick to a brand you've heard of with a decent warranty you're unlikely to go wrong.
I thank everyone for the answers. For that price and because I only swap my tires twice I think I'll manage the manual way.

If you want the best bang for your buck for masonry, don't buy cordless - get a mains hammer drill, or SDS if you'll want to use the hammer without rotation for chiselling.
Good write up of how an impact driver is different from a cordless drill here:

I swap my wheels twice a year (winter tyres) and I agree an impact driver isn't powerful enough to remove or torque the nuts up. What I do however is walk round each wheel and manually release all the nuts with a quick half turn with the wheel wrench and then use my impact driver with a 1/2" bit adaptor to whir the nuts all the way off - it saves a bit of time and hassle when doing all four wheels

Depends what you want to do. Lot's of 6mm holes for screw plugs in brick work without the hassle of a cord - a good cordless. Lots of 15-200mm holes right the way through walls - a good SDS.

Bosch green I'd avoid. But its each buyer to spend their own money.
No814 m ago

Why?


They are pretty basic imo - I've never owned any but I have used someone else's. Certainly not superior to the items in the OP - Erbauer kit as good if not better I believe. I also think additional batteries will be cheaper and easier to obtain should you require them.

Each of us spends our money as we choose. I spend based on my own need and experience. Bosch blue you can't go wrong.

Personally, in my experience, Bosch Green devices just die for no apparent reason. I think it's built into their electronics.

You must have been unlucky. I've used Bosch since they first brought out NiCad cordless and never had a problem. Currently have about 10 Power4All devices and no issues.

Agreed, it's what ever suits you and your budget. I've had a bad experience with Erbauer, so I stay away. I wouldn't waste money on Bosch blue for DIY though!

It's in an open location, that's the only problem., With NO power points. Will it really not work on concrete... ( Thanks for the reply)

Not saying a cordless won't work, but for your application I'd do some research to find the best tool for the job, particularly torque, hammer action - and battery life! It would probably be better to spend a bit more to save a lot of frustration later on...
i bought these years ago. Used for general DIY around the house, putting up plasterboard, as well as put down decking, etc.
The impact driver has more than enough grunt. I dont really use the drill much - Its ok for small holes in concrete.

However, I have since started moving to Makita. My concern with these is spare parts. Erbauer is Screwfix own make, so prob cant buy a replacement battery or charger, etc.

So if you can get a known brand for a little more, I would go for that.

Actually this is what won me over - Spare batteries and chargers are available and not too pricey and the charger will also charge up the 4.0AH battery as well. 2 year warranty is decent, and if it dies after 3 years then would probably want to replace anyway as tech will have moved on. keyless chuck and li-ion batteries are big changes and a led light at the end make me smile but I know will help me find the end of the screwbit when working in a dark cupboard..

Bearing in mind the price here is only a little above what lidl were asking for their own brand stuff a few weeks ago, it seems a no brainer. I was a firm holdout on the cordless tools, and then saw all the professionals using them but thought I dont need them as a DIYer, Been sitting on the fence for 5 years but pressed the button on the deal this morning and added a box of driver bits as well.

But how much more do those Makita tools cost and how often do you need a spare part for the cheaper stuff? With labour it's unlikely to be a cost effective move to repair anyway.
