So why the cold votes I can't see it cheaper elsewhere! Do they have a problem or something ?

Only small (1.3Ah) batteries and ni-cad at that. This doesn't have enough grunt for day long pro use and you can get a reasonable Li-ion drill for same money.

Yeah i agree good deal. I got one the last time they were this price and very happy.

Also have one of these and rate it highly

In all honesty for me this would be used for odd jobs in and around our home,and with it having two batteries I feel it's fine for my needs.

would a "pro" expect a 1.3ah drill to run all day? no. they would look at a higher spec model.
great for diy or light user. excellant price tho

It`s a DIY drill!
Jesus.
Day long pro use?

Perfect for around the house DIY, fine as a use one in a bluemoon drill.

unlike li-ion batteries, ni-cd batteries self discharge with time, so if you use the drill infrequently the battery is likely to need charging when you come to use it.

Thank-you hotchilli. My point exactly.

It's not man enough for daily use but it's not good for occasional diy use because you need to remember to charge it first. It's old technology and li-ion is available for the same price.

As for some people they seem to get very emotional about this:

Calm down dear!

(But the irony of someone called "agnostic" blaspheming made me smile!)

I have it and it's a good deal for DIY. Try buying a crappy B&D with 3 batteries for this price...no way...

Well despite the lack of love for this drill I went back and got one,very happy with it done a few jobs since getting back(the gf will be thrilled) it packs loads of punch and after the hammer I've given it there is plenty of juice left in the battery.so it's perfect for home users.

Just my honest opinion
