I've had a few Mac Allister power tools - a lawn mower, a router and an angle grinder and in each case the motor has burnt out between 12 and 18 months - the router had only made 4 cuts during that time. On this basis I really wouldn't recommend Mac Allister products, even at this price. For just a few quid more the Titan tools from Screwfix are a better bet.

The Titan SDS looks identical to the McAlister one apart from the colour

It may be the same, I imagine that Screwfix's Titan range are just rebadged generic tools, as B&Q's will be. I'm just saying that I've had bad experiences with McAlister tools - three failing just outside warranty after only light use - whereas my Titan SDS drill has been worked fairly hard (DIY, not trade) and is still going strong. Maybe I was just unlucky with the B&Q stuff, or lucky with the Titan, but based on my experiences I'd never buy a McAlister power tool again.

I'll second the Titan £50 at Screwfix. I've really given it some abuse and it hasn't missed a beat. Voted hot on this deal though as great price and no personal experience of Macallister

Own a few McAlister tools, and tbh for budget kit they are fine. I can't imagine many DIYers being disappointed.

No disrespect but I find that amazing to believe' unless you are abusing them then 3 separate tools to fail in the time as you describe is simply incredible.

I've nothing else to add except your comment is hard to believe or you've just been very unlucky with unlucky.


oh and by the way I've got a couple of macallister tools (B&Q own brand bench grinder & also angle grinder ) as well as a few Titan ( screwfix own brand ) tools used regularly well over 2 years now and not an ounce of trouble.

I did acknowledge that I may just have been unlucky with the Macallister tools (although my belief is it's more to do with poor quality tools than luck), but I'm just offering my experience in an attempt to help others make a slightly more informed choice. I'm not saying don't buy this offer, I haven't voted hot or cold, just saying I've had poor experiences with this brand.

Get the Aldi one with free delivery for £39.99 with 3 yr warranty and its 1500w.. bit more powerful
Im guessing the Mac Allister comes with only 1 yr warranty?it doesn't say on B&Q site.. if thats the case the Aldi one(workzone) with the 3 yr warranty will make a way better choice. Good reviews on Aldi website as well and it comes with more drill bits. Whereas for Mac allosyer,most people say their products dont last long,less warranty less accessories less reliability.
