£200 for this brand of drill. I dont think do



So £200 is too dear??? But, £400 or £500 on an equivalent Markeater or Holty is not??? Have you read the trade recommendations on the Screwfix site? Trade users who have actually used this drill rate it, unlike yourself who seems to be using a crystal ball and prejudiced "tool snobbery".
FYI, you get a only a one year warranty on the Markeater for your £500 notes. This one has 2 YEARS!

I think a reliable brand like makita or dewalt worth £100 ish would be a way better choice. People can say whatever they wanna say in the review section.. How do u know screwfix didnt delete bad reviews n leave only good reviews.. A makita/bosch/dewalt cant go too wrong

Really, you can get a 36v SDS markeata or a Dewalter for £100 ish????

Dewalter = black and ducker.

These 'reliable' brands give only one year warranty such is the qualitee.

Troll off, troll monger.
Dewalt with one batt for £220:

http://www.powertoolworld.co.uk/dewalt-dch253m1-xr-18v-cordless-sds-plus-hammer-drill-inc-1x-4-0ah-batt

OK slightly heavier and 20% less joules but 3 year warrantee, much lower vibration too.

Erbauer comes with 2 batts but apparently they don't do spares!

Yup, and the dewalt (black and decker) is only 18v....the other specs do not compare either because the dewalt is half the voltage. Infact, £200 plus is a rip off for an 18volt drill.You have to spend £400 or £500 to get a snobbery based device which does compare.
This is the whole point of the post.

good deal, got one of these and their impactor too..decent kit
this drill can only drill in a cake.. on a single charge
Great price and piece of kit. All Dewalt and Mikita are sent off for repair after 3 months as well if they break and will leave you without your drill for a week or so. Erbauer is a straight exchange in store within the two years warranty. If you are using it day in day out though I would recommend Dewalt and Mikita as the Erbauer is not meant for that kind of punishment. I am a manager in Screwfix and have worked there for 3 and half years and this is the advice I would want my staff to give to any potential customer.

Thanks.
You can buy nearly 3 of them for the same money as a branded one.
I think that there is an immense amount of snobbery with branded tools and their perceived superiority is only in actuality marginal. It is obviously not true in all cases, but I'd buy this tool and I have purchased erbaurer before. My other tools are branded. I always look for value, not a snob branding, so I buy tools like Hitachi, which are made in Japan, when the snobby brands are often made in China.
Anyway they will all be superseded soon as the switch will be to brush-less motors.
