Expensive, B+Q sell the same set with 2 batteries,same price



unless there's a code i'm not aware of, B&Q are selling it for £95 (with 2 batteries) -vs- homebase selling for £72 (i dont even want 2 batteries)

Do I need one?

Do I need one?



If your asking then the answer is no. (same as me)

Nice deal..... Hot.

Bought one last night as a handy spare.
Ended up buying a fig plant for 99p (reduced) and a couple of pots we needed anyway so made it over £50.

Also, was sent a voucher for double points through the post last week.

Is it a hammer drill?

I'm afraid not.

You can use it as a hammer. Breaks rather easy though!

Do I need one?


If your asking then the answer is obviously yes. (same as me)

better off with the Makita 8391DWPE in my opinion. 2 batteries with a 1/2 hour charge and comes with an industrial warranty. Sure I've seen it for just a tad over £100 with the accessory pack.

Thanks for the tip, collecting mine later today. I've been on the lookout for a well priced 18v Li-Ion hammer drill - this will fit the bill perfectly!

Got one yesterday, and had a little play. Seems like a great drill but the charging unit is a bit iffy. Essentially you need to stop charging the battery "when it gets warm" as it has not full charge indicator and it has no auto shut off on the charger either, so you could damage the battery (or burn down your house) by leaving it on for to long.

Says 14.4 volts on the box in store.

good price but went for Bosch PSB 18 Li-2 Cordless Hammer Drill - 18V - £72

Thanks OP

Your suggestion is good, but above is about £40 and you said spend about £140.
Like went to buy Suzuki but offered Ferrari

Anyone else who bought this confirm it is 14.4v or actually as listed 18v??????

Banned

no hammer
no auto cut off when battery charging
no charging indicator

not worth anymore than 40quid anyway

It is 18v. They had the wrong one in store on the shelf. None in stock here.

It's certainly not the same build and features of the Bosch drill I got a couple years ago for £100 - I'd say this one is ok for around £50 but probably better offers out there if it was £100

Must admit.... now you've listed these lack of specs, it isn't as good deal as i thought.
Better to go for the Makita or the Bosch Li-ion that was mentioned earlier in the thread.

I am now on my third one of these, the other two packed up after 4 months, the batteries are now very forgiving if you overcharge them

That's the PSR18 (uses NI-CD batteries which don't hold charge as well etc).

The PSR 18 - LI 2 (Lithium Ion batteries etc) is actually £127.48p at B&Q making that drill a fantastic buy at £72 in homebase!

If it is a 14.4V drill, looks cheaper on amazon to me (£34.99)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-Cordless-Drill-Driver-Battery/dp/B000RW025E/ref=sr_1_3?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1325264063&sr=1-3

Not too sure about 14.4V vs 18V.

Also, as existing user of Bosch cordless drill, can confirm problems with overcharging and battery life. Replacement batteries seem expensive (when compared to buying a new drill). Probably a better option to go for 2 battery purchase. Found this 18V Bosch (2 batteries) on Amazon for £59.99.

amazon.co.uk/Bos…1-1

Good value. £41.49 gets you the drill and a bag of haribo marshmallows.

Got this today, just shy of £40....... can't find it cheaper on the web.... bargain
Also got the 3yrs extended waranty with 20%off (works out to about £8 )
Edited by: "jinderr" 31st Dec 2011

Sorry, just to confirm, it's definitely 18v

Now I know where my Christmas present came from... gutted.

It's been fine for me so far, heat added.

is the 20% still on?

the general 20% discount on orders above £50 has expired - kicking myself as I really wanted to buy a load of wall panelling and the 20% would've made it worthwhile. Any one know if there are going to be further such discounts over the coming days?
