Thanks, I was (and still am) a bit confused about the DHP480SYE that I linked to, as I couldn't find any further official info on that specific model. It says it has 54Nm torque on the Screwfix website, which is a bit more than the one in this HUK deal (45Nm), so I wondered if it was a better model just sold with a different configuration of batteries?
many thanks for the info!
Its a good capable combi from the spec, but the 2 x 1.5ah batteries are small capacity, but light weight. It does come with the rapid charger; so faster charging times than the charger provided with the above deal. It's not a drill I own. You may be able to keep swapping the 1.5 ah between drill and charger in time for bigger tasks. I don't own a battery less than 3ah and I reserve that one for my radio as it just doesn't last long enough in my tools. I can't offer any insight into how long a 1.5ah battery will last in a brushless combi. Anyone else??
Apologies for the delay. Your Bosch is a max torque of 28Nm, so this deal will be a step up. The DHP 458 is a heavy, top end combi drill. I only use it for heavy duty tasks. If you've been using it for a while, your arms and wrists know about it. Same for the DHP481. You can pick up a good condition second hand DHP458 on eBay for about £45 to £50; naked.
but DHP458 costs at least £170-£180 with a battery and charger..not really comparable to this one..
I got this drill but with one 1.5 battery for £85 on a previous post from wickes. Excellent drill for my needs.
Sounds like this is a pick and mix drill combo with having different batteries in the case?
Use code M25 for free drills on any order.
Updated, apologies missed the VAT was missing. Thanks all
Heat.... now put the inclusive or price
Wheels fall off in first week
I was too late! But nice one for posting (y)
You mean it isn't? (annoyed)
And for some scrote to nick thinking it's full of power tools
£21.95 with free delivery from FFX if anyone's interested.
+ 20% VAT
Really annoys me when places like this display prices in the way they do.
Ebay is cheaper.
Ok if you're VAT registered.
Just received mine and I got to be honest I'm quite impressed with the quality for the money. Happy with the purchase . Also I got the dark orange wich is much nicer.
The vaunt gear is garbage had some drill bits set for free as a promotion I've snapped at least half and the others are so blunt you could clean Your ears out with them
I’m not convinced that any of these starter sets are great value. Better building a set of quality tools over time. Buy cheap, buy twice.
Put it up as a deal then... see if you don't get absolutely hammered for it. Do not excuse the pun! (nerd)
I've been buying Paramount tools as I replace old hand tools as they have a lifetime warranty which covers everything except torque wrenches. 40% off with the code PARAMOUNT https://www.mscdirect.co.uk I used to swear by Stanley but the quality seems to have dropped of late.
Seems cheap - This will be put together pretty well! (nerd) (highfive)
Thanks penny, i did phone and ask, it is no longer included
Unfortunately it appears not, you could always phone them and ask for it, they may include it if you ask
Does this still come with the free 100 piece set?
If you’re starting out in your first home you absolutely need: 1) A kettle 2) This drill
Good find. I found a code for its for extra goodies... Enter BOX19A and you'll get a few extras. Will add to description!
Indeed does. That's how I came about it, didn't fancy running a 4ah in it due to weight
Does it fit that 887n impact driver Robert?
4ah for 46.65 delivered. https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Dewalt-Dcb182-5035048392782-Xr-18V-Li-Ion-Battery-Pack-4.0Ah
You can buy an sds chuck for £5 you can use it to do with it what you want, they recommend not using it on the hammer setting but for £5 doesn't matter if you break it after a few uses, especially if you're paying £7 for a specific sds bit you're only going to use the once
Definitely. Have one myself. Recommend it.. very easy to use without the wires, transformer, extension leads, etc.
No worries. For casual use around the house Parkside at Lidl sells some decent tools. Not great, but good enough, and the range is great
@Despondent @martynbez Thanks for that exactly the advice I needed!
You wouldn’t use this. You could put an adapter (sds to chuck) but even on the drill-no hammer setting you wouldn’t have torque control. For not much more than the price of the adapter you could get a decent combi drill that would do the job just fine. This is for drilling in concrete and similar materials, period.
I know these aren’t at every station but luggage is one use of them.
Yes it does, the price was set automatically by HUKD, but considering ITS is the only store that I can find that stock it and I can’t find anything similar for a similar or cheaper price elsewhere I think this is a lot better than paying it normal price. Frankly I didn’t think about delivering since I am in London and there are few stores near by.
Try such a bag in gates and you will see how there are more things to catch edges and entangle, really !
How would the side pockets make a difference with gates vs the same bag without? The gates still close the same way and the side pockets are low profile
£19.99 sounds a great deal, but after VAT and delivery £28.94, not so great after all.
ITS £179 now :(
Excellent deal! I have older makita drill so know how good these are. Brushless Drill Case Charger 1 x 3.0 AH Battery 100 Piece Drill Bits & Screw Driver Bit Free 13 Piece HSS drill bits with ( voucher code ). Makes me want to buy one even though I dont need it!
At 45nm of torque I'd say it's a tad on the low side definately not high!.
Any good at this price with 1 battery?
Good price & great tool Hot!
Decent price (y)
Tried my luck and ordered
Received mine over the weekend, excellent drill!
Still showing as available online, but just had an order cancelled because they're out of stock until after the offer expires now. Apparently, they have vastly oversold their expectations, especially since someone recently picked up all of their last delivery in one go. I've reported expired.
Can get 3rd party batteries for maklta too. Would not advise as there is a lot of "tech" in the genuine battery packs to protect both the cells and the appliance. These brushless drills have fantastic battery life. I thought I'd need a spare but 1x4Ah seems to go all day and charger is v fast if needed.
code ITSTOM as posted by @mikeyjoe1 gets you ITS mug, wallet warrior multitool plier
Welcome. That's a cracking deal. :D And ordered.
Postage is £4.95 if you're just buying these.
a very warm welcome to hukd newbie.thanks for taking the time to share your deal with us today.have some heat :)
Bored now, sorry (lol)
I never said I'm selling it. For £47 you get an extra 2ah battery worth £28, a brushless motor, metal quality chuck, longer run time. If you want to sell it then you are paying £25 more for a much better drill. Simple.
So after all that you are keeping it, back to my original point, it’s 44% more expensive so not nearly like for like. Unless you are a heavy trade user 1 x 4ah battery is all you’ll ever need.
I sell a few things on eBay. It's very easy. Also there is £1 fvf this weekend. It's not second hand as not used and box sealed. I think I'd get £25 of eBay for it. But I'm going to keep it as it will come in use for light work. Will probably get another 4ah to go with the impact driver.
You won’t get £25. Also it has nothing to do with the tool on offer. So now you have to wait until you find an offer of low fees off eBay, you have to find someone who will pay almost the same for a second hand battery as a new one, you have to find someone who wants a small battery (most buying a second battery will want and upgrade not a downgrade) you will have to post it, you will have all of the hassle of the above. You can’t compare these two at all. If that was the case you could buy a top brand multi tool kit with 6 or 7 items. Wait until there is a good deal and split them all up. If you could get 88% of the original cost of the items separately you could end up with a free drill............ but it’s a ball ache to do.
Still available and in stock.
Prices don't match. Says £311.99 after VAT when I follow the link
Yeah, Dewalt prices are really good at the moment. Unfortunately for me I’m a Makita fanboy having invested in the LXT range 10 years ago. Either system would be great IMHO.
Thats a much better deal. £10 cheaper and with bigger batteries.
Got the dewalt 996, 887, 4ah batteries, charger and case for just £40 more after vat and far better drills
Not sure why you would buy this particular corded sds drill, seem underpowered at 2J and limited with 2 modes. Slightly less money gets you a Hitachi with 3.2J and three mode action + 3 year warranty. I have the Hitachi and it's been a beast, though slightly heavier it feels light to me.
I wondered what you were looking at :D I got the stupidly high torque Makita 458 which is great at breaking a wrist if not careful, I think it's 88Nm and when you use it you really smell those brushes burning away hehehe....however something around 60Nm should be fine for most people.
Ah, sorry! Completely misread the page I was on - 63Nm is the nut-busting torque and so pretty meaningless (especially on a combi). Good call. Or if going Makita then the DHP482 is probably better at this price range (not brushless but more powerful).
It's 40Nm torque as per description above and on the site. 63Nm would be great if it was. "Delivering an impressive 40Nm max torque" Personally I found my previous Makita and Bosch, both around 40Nm of torque rather lacking and when I got a higher torque drill then realised how much difference it made. This might be fine for the average DIY'er but i'd rather get the £99 Dewalt that has a larger battery and 60Nm for £99...and it's brushless for those that have a dislike of brushes :D https://www.its.co.uk/pd/DCD795M1-Dewalt-18V-4.0Ah-XR-Li-ion-Brushless-Hammer-Drill-Driver-_DEWDCD795M1.htm?gclid=CjwKCAjwrNjcBRA3EiwAIIOvq1RASNIjrJnjz033f07TsGh-aLgdRvkNHJxxwaCiyOosyqmseMOlXhoCiEUQAvD_BwE
Thank you sir!
Since when is 63Nm low torque? If you need much more than that, you'd be better off with an impact driver, wrench or SDS drill.
