10.8V Twin Pack featuring Drill Driver and Impact Driver with 2 x Li-ion batteries and carry case.
I bought this pack a few weeks back and have been very impressed with the performance and quality.

Cheapest I could find these for a couple of weeks ago was £134 so I reckon this is hot. Don't be fooled by the 10.8v ..... there's loads of grunt and staying power. I've always used cheap power drill drivers before but they don't compare with the feel or performance of this quality kit - a pleasure to use!

I have the 230v version of this impact (looks alike), this thing will break heads off screws if you want it to
bear in mind that the drill isn't a hammer drill so drilling in to brick/concrete won't be fun. The CLX202AJ has a hammer drill.

Better off paying the 16 more to get the 202AJ from amazon because the combi drill has hammer function.
This or the wickes offer for similar?

Still not even close to cheapest rotary hammer

But this is for combi drill and impact driver not just the drill. Also I'd pay the extra to have Makita never had a problem with their products.

I was commenting on the "hammer " function specifically , which i find useless on these
Sorry, I'm going to cross-post this in 2 different threads. Does anyone have any opinions on which form factor is better between a) the black and white set (LCT204W) and b) the blue 2.0ah set (CLX202J)?

a) makitauk.com/pro…tml
b) makitauk.com/pro…tml

According to the spec sheet on Makita's website, the black and white set are 1kg and 0.92kg respectively whilst the blue ones (CLX202J) are 1.3kg and 1.2kg.

Yes, the latter have 2.0ah batteries and slightly higher torque but I already ave my 18v set when that's needed so I'm more looking for ergonomics and ease of use. I would have assumed lighter is better but am in theory thinking the following pro's and cons:

1: White ones have a simple and small form factor so you might be able to slip them into your pocket whilst working, they wouldn't take much space in a bag and would pull other things out and get caught in other things when you pull them out (as no clip or sticking out parts.

2: Blue ones might be better balanced with more weight at the bottom so feel better in the hand. It's possible the white ones, despite being lighter, feel less comfortable as the weight distribution is poor.

3: The blue ones stand up on the battery.

If anyone has used both or compared them, your thoughts will be appreciated.

Thanks

These have never been much cop as hammer drills thats probably why they didn't bother, I use an SDS for heavy drilling and these for everything else.
