Hi all. I have read the comments but can those in the know please clarify for me as I need to buy an impact driver today. Item will be used for replacing some rotten deck and floor boards and other DIY around the house. Should I get the DTD155ZB sub-compact (the one in this kit) or the cheaper DTD152z? I already have a drill driver from a previous purchase so will share the battery. Price difference between the 2 bare units is £20 so just want to get the better item. Thanks
Cheers man! Sadly I was too slow to jump on it and the price raised within an hour of me posting to £270 (after discount code made it around £240 so nowhere near the deal I was getting). The wait for a new super deal starts again. I hear you on the DeWalt specs/value but I've never warmed to the brand so it will forever bug me and I won't get that warm fuzzy feeling inside when I come to using it. Y'know that feeling when you're using the thing you REALLY want? (nerd) My Dad always used Makita so it's been the brand I've wanted to use too when I'm a BIG BOY! I also warm to Bosch (Blue). It's the same reason my laundry goods are Miele, my sink is a Franke and my hand tools are a mix of Bahco/C.K and Halfords Pro. I get joy out of using all of them as they're are what I want to use not what made the most sense on paper. It's just one of those blokey things we all do. I can only imagine how good a brand new Makita brushless motor will smell through the cooling vents! Hmmm... (cheeky)
Picture does need changing, Very miss leading, Maybe a sin that I voted hot on picture alone without reading, Been here long enough to know better, But I bet I'm not the only one.
Again not necessarily. I've just compared the weights of the brushed and brushless versions on one of my drills (not Makita) and they're exactly the same, and the top-of-the range brushless one is heavier again. So again it's likely something that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Thanks a lot for replying. I understood brushless also usually means lighter, which I think I'd have liked over the heavy brushed drill I own.
