Found 5th Feb 2014
The price of this kit was over £100 before Xmas and had been reduced to £49.98 for the last couple of weeks.
Now they have reduced it again, if you were to buy the multi-tool alone it would cost £69.98 so bargain time if you can get one. They had four left in Paisley earlier on when I bought mine.
This kit includes: Multi-tool, 1-speed drill driver, 2x 10.8V lithium batteries, 1x Power Surge™ charger and accessories ideal for cutting, sanding, grinding and more

They have them instore

At least 5 in stock in Bristol longwell green store. marked up at full price on shelf but scanning at above price.

Cheers op I have the B and Q own brand Mains power but would be nice to have the battery powered one as well and the drill will come in handy im sure just won't be able to get to my local B and Q til tomorrow.

May go have a look at lunchtime, thanks.

Out of stock.

Does it come in any sort of case?

Good Spot, very handy. I called and reserved one. Still 5 left in stock at B&Q Elgin.

I paid £60 just for the drill this time last year. Solid piece of kit. Well worth the money, the battery charges in 30mins with a 3 min rapid 25% charge, which was my main reason for buying one, as usually the battery on cordless tools is flat when you need it.

I personally don't like all these fast chargers, I wish more companies would give you a switch or something on the unit so you can decide to do a slower charge if you don't need it.

But then again, why would they care about extending battery life?

Bonus here is the battery is compatible with their other 10.8V tools I really like single battery systems.

Heat added, just hope I can get myself one - only want the multitool for a few jobs, but a light driver for keeping in the house, will be handy - better than the impact driver I keep in the house, which is compact but could rip things to shreds heh.

Good price for the set. Might pock one up.

Just called and picked one up, they had 5 left. Some items for B&Q they don't allow for reserve & collect for some reason, if you cant do that you cant check stock online (or im missing it?)

Multitool has a dust extraction socket on it, which you don't usually find on battery tools.


I've been looking to use a shop vac more, so glad to find it on another tool. Anyone got any suggestions? B&Q have their own range with power take off, budget would probably be good enough for me. The other option is the Exakt PTV 700, its compact (and yea probably less powerful) but a bit more portable - cant really decide which to go for. 600W vs 1200-1800W though...

Blimey, I had the cheapest I could find saved @ £69 - I probably would have searched again had I went to buy it, but I was basing my decision on that price.

For £43 im going to get that for now, cheers.

are these multi-tool things actually any good? Aldi were selling some off for £14.99 and i wish i bought one for that price, but couldnt see exactly the kind of thing to use them for

Whilst I would normally say you'd know if you need one, they do have quite a few applications, each maybe a bit niche. Have a gander on youtube etc.

Something I wish I had it for, was to cut out holes for every socket in our refurb, would have been handy to do the same in the shed too. The time saving and tidiness would have been worth the £35 then.

OK - I popped into my local B&Q and picked one up.
To put the price into perspective:

Multi-tool is currently selling ON ITS OWN with NO Battery/Charger for £69.98

The Drill is selling, again ON ITS OWN with NO Battery/Chager for £24.98
**Note it's the 1 speed drill, I already have the 2 speed drill but it's still a well built tool

Each Battery is £19.98 - Couldn't find a price for the Charger, but if I recall it's also around £20

To buy this all separately would cost you £135

This is selling for £36.98

Where's the heat people - - this is a scorching hot deal

Still not had time to go looking at my local

Got one in brighton 2 left, didnt see this before i went in so was quite surprised with the find

None in Plymouth (warehouse) but heat.

Cheers for the info, didn't think of YouTube so will check it out. Not long moved into a house so I'm sure I'll find it handy at some point - but for £35 the drill/driver would pay for itself anyway.

They had six at Wednesbury last night. I sent the missus to get me one

6 left in Kidderminster this afternoon. Look on the bottom shelf on the opposite side of the aisle to where all the power tools are.

Seems very good for the price.

picked one up from festival park store stoke-on-trent they had another 2 on the shelf priced up at £49 but scans as above looks a good bit of kit

Is the drill good enough for plasterboard? I assume so but thought I'd check, it looks nice and light and I have a few jobs to do in a new build.

Got one from Stafford, they had about 8 left but they were all up on the racking rather than on display.

got one today from wednesbury store they had about 3 left after my purchase. good deal

Just bought one in burnage Manchester store... Plenty left.

hot. bought today in mk still had about 5 left

You could put holes in plasterboard with a screwdriver (not that id suggest it) so, yes. Unless you mean screwing plasterboard to studs, then depends... I wouldn't do a whole house with this one, but the one off would be okay.

I've had a play with it now and its fine, I just need something to put shelves etc. up in a house that doesn't have real walls. I miss old properties!

5 in Stock at B&Q Penistone Road Sheffield, they're on the bottom shelf in the corded tool area

My cases arrived today (thanks bigbuds for the heads up), am hoping they'll both fit into one but not sure.

can you fit both into 1case?

Not sure yet, the cases are at mine but the tools are at my OHs. Will hopefully find out later.

They mostly fit....

The two tools themselves fit fine, almost made for it:

Add the charger though and its getting very tight, could have done with being just an inch longer. The charger does just about fit but only upside down:

Got it all in eventually, its just a bit of a tight fit.

EDIT: Looking at that again if I took the battery out of the drill it'd probably all fit a lot better!
