whats LXT? thanks

It's the next level up on quality and compatibility. If it's LXT compatible it means any drill body will take a LXT battery as they are all the same shape . But it's more for a semi serious professional because most if us won't need or have different drill bodies. This deal is very good but others will bitch it's not LXT .

Just note that the ITS deal includes:
- The L-Boxx 136 (this alone sells for £22)
- 2 x 2.0 Ah batteries (the screwfix deal comes with one 4Ah battery, I find two batteries easier to work with as you use one while the other is charging)
- a faster charger (65 mins v 120 mins, although this might be because of the smaller size of the batteries?)
- the screwdriver & drill bits set

So IMHO a much better deal for an extra £8, you get the L-boxx and the drill & screwdriver bit set, so hot from me!

I bought this last week and can confirm that it's a cracking little drill.

Couldn't justify more than £200, went to Saxton for some more blades.

I have the 350, came with lots of blades. Paid just over £200 for it. Better value IMHO.

Amazing tool

Sorry to say op your price needs VAT added to it makes it £107.99 and this is the old model, not so bad if using it once in a blue moon as the blade change uses an allen key painful if changing blades alot. The newer model 350 uses quick change. Before you buy this one check out some reviews between the two and the other brands as they all have good and bad points and not all can use any clip in tool brand.

be careful of fakes, especially batteries. Also you need to allow for VAT and duty. Then they are not much cheaper.

Yeah but how about buying new li-ion batteries for your 10 year old bosch … Yeah but how about buying new li-ion batteries for your 10 year old bosch professional drill that used ni-mh ones until they died? They appear to have changed the battery fitting when they went to li-on. So those tools are now pretty much worthless.And all the current bare tools and batteries are about double the price of the ryobi so they'd better be amazing!My 10 year old ryobis have been thrashed but are better than ever on li-ion batteries.I suppose if you just want a drill set to thrash for a couple of years and then buy another it's a good deal. I have some bosch blue tools and they are good (can get parts).


Well, you can hardly expect technology not to move on over 10 years, and when that concerns battery technology, when moving to an entirely new battery composition, the battery sizes, proportions, and of course, the connection placement will all change. If I had some 10 year old Ni-Mh drill and the battery died before the drill did (this would normally happen with low-to-very-low usage) and I HADN'T had the foresight to buy a spare battery while they were still available, I'd say that was my bad, and happily move on to the far superior technology available today. I reckon the top (Makita, Bosch) "mini" 10.8V li-ion drills of today are as powerful as the 16V Ni-Cads of 12-15 years ao, and almost as powerful as the 18V Ni-MH, but with the huge advantage of being much smaller and much lighter (about half the weight & 2/3rds of the size)
Finally, yes, I reckon they are almost twice as good as the Ryobi, although the new tech coming soon (some are already here) is the brushless technology, which makes tools more reliable, with ,ore efficient, thus lower battery usage. Prices are quite high at first, as always with jew tech (though I saw a DeWalt brushless that looked decent and was very competitively priced a few weeks ago @ Toolstop) and I'm guessing this is why the prices for these drills are dropping by 15-20%.

Ryobi sold their European power tools business in 2001.So a Ryobi is a Techtronic Industries product, that carries the Ryobi name. I would approve of the Ryobi battery strategy if they sold the additional batteries at a competitive price.

You still have to do the same for Ryobi!2) You don't throw away the battery if you tool is lost or broken, you buy a new tool body! Or sell the battery on ebay and get a good price!3) Same goes for ANY RANGE OF CORDLESS TOOLS EVER! It's as if you think Ryobi have EXCLUSIVELY hit upon some magical system that no one else has. ALL manufacturers have ranges with interchangeable batteries. It may take a few seconds to work out the compatibility, but with the Bosch professional range (teal+red coloured) ALL 18V batteries fit ALL 18V tools, same goes for the 10.8 V range.

IMO, yes, this is aimed at professional use, not many manufacturers have a brushless combi in this price range.

Some brands are targeting B&Q etc with 'unique' power tools that have batteries not compatible across the range, Makita being a prime example, purely relying on there excellent LXT ranges' reputation, they have a cheaper and inferior version for the DIY market.

Benefit from 2 x 2.0Ah over a 4.0Ah is the weight, the tradesman would appreciate the weight to longevity of a 4.0Ah, and more than likely have other power tools in the same range so would have multiple batteries,but IMHO the average DIYer would prefer 2 x 2.0Ah batteries as this would be easier (lighter) to use, a 2.0Ah would be more than ample for around the home jobs and would give piece of mind that they had a spare should the first battery develop a fault.
