I've ordered it for collection, but for some reason the code was not applied. I'm calling them in the morning to see what was the issue.
But I think it is a good price.

there seems to be a group on here that has no ideal about tools.
i think this is a good deal. lXi too so batteries fit other Makita kit.

the code does work.
you may have to go back out of the basket and back in after applying the code before it kicks in or add and remove a different item etc, but it worked for me.

bargain!

Heat added Also if you click&collect you can use voucher code COLLECT5 for £5 off valid until 31 December

Not a bad deal but it's one of the old models, the battery and charger great but the drill isn't the best, ok for Diy. Good to see its a 3.0 battery these alone can cost £50 upwards and the Chargers are worth around £15-20 so not a bad deal but just remember it's a really old drill no led light either drill by its self only worth around £20 new

the cheapest i found the drill was £45 to replace old nicd si with 3.0ah battery and charger £50 and £20 great deal amd the drill is better quality than just for diy more than likely comes with makita warranty voted hot

Hot deal, this is a great drill, battery, charger and case deal, very low price.

Good price.

Just so people know the drill is an old model, the battery and charger are fine and work with all the majors range, I'm a pro and have many batteries and drills so I know what I'm talking about, for diy it's fine but if your in the trade and use a drill daily you would be best with a newer model

Just picked mine up looks good cheers op. Make sure u check it's the right drill when u pick it up as I was handed an old nicad battery drill not this beauty :-)

Bargain how ever way you look at it. Don't really need an led light, if its that dark you'd have lighting anyway. Hot from me

I normally go for the hitatchi/makita/dewalt offers at b&q. normally 18v +2 batteries for £95. screw fix (a b&q sub brand) normally do the same kind of offer too.

http://m.screwfix.com/p/hitachi-dv18dcl2-18v-1-5ah-li-ion-cordless-combi-drill/64945

one of the benefits of two batteries is if one dies then you still have another to fall back on for a while.

iirc a 3mah battery lasts twice as long as a 1.5mah battery so you can have one on charge while you work vs having to wait between 20 and 45 mins for a charge. I also suspect frequent charging and discharging without allowing the battery to cool can lead to premature battery failure.

don't get me wrong though. this deal is hot. heat added.

Had my Makita circular saw and drill for 10 years. Never had any issues, still going strong.

Good deal really, especially if it comes with the 3.0ah battery pictured. Buying new, the battery is about £60 and the charger £30 (well it was when I last checked Amazon). So heat for what must be a 'free' drill ;-)

buy Hilti forget the rest

You are an idiot. I thought it was one off... once

if your serious about your tools and and they are for everyday use then you have to go with Hilti worth the extra ££££ ,

7777777 , is this u telling us your age over and over again or is it the number to your men only chatline ****

Collected mine this morning the charger is the higher spec dc18rc yes the drill is an older model but for £85 (and a couple of quid off through quidco) you really can't go wrong

Called customer support as my £5 off didn't show on the invoice and they said I will have a check in the post for £5 refund.
I've collected mine this morning and it looks good to me. For a DIY as me, it is perfect. Not too heavy not too light.

DIY?
Seriously these guys don't know what they are talking about!
I had my Makita drill with nicd batteries for 10 years.
At the time lithium batteries didn't exist or were very rare.
I fit kitchens and i go through a day work with the two batteries.
Again, they're 10 years old!
Makita tools are not for the occasional diy, they're stronger than Dewalt, Hitachi etc. and suitable for trade.
I've borrowed my friend Makita with this same 3.0 battery and lasted me all day drilling and driving like a mad Italian stallion!

Not sure why you get offended. Quite a few said that this is a good combi drill but many will say that this is an entry level in the professional tools. I for example will be using this drill around the house (that is why I said I'm a DIY), but I like when I do something to use a good tool, hence why I bought it (even if I was looking at a £150 Bosch Combi drill). I'm sure many are using it everyday, it just depends what is your budget. For me it was perfect, I bought one that will work just like one which is more expensive, but for bit more than £80. I'm sure I will not see any difference, beside the light which Bosch and others have (you can fix that with a £5 flashlight).

purchased an hilti for the guys at work who normally use Dewalt, feedback was very poor. We use hilti sds drills on site but the battery drill was poor.

This is worth it just for the battery and charger.

What do you guys think of this option for £15 more? Same drill but you get an accessory box and nice looking canvas bag to hold it all (less hard drill box I presume).

Thoughts?

Guys in Wimbledon branch claimed stock and took the money then after I'd got notification and driven all the way there they pretended they didn't have any. One of his mates said to him he'd put it in a cupboard then he gave me some gab about it being unavailable. Never been to Wickes before, never going again.

You can choose to have it delivered as it is free:

£50 and over
Next Day Delivery: FREE
Next Day AM Delivery: £5
Saturday Delivery: £5

But I would call customer support as I think they are more than "happy" to hear how their branche behave. I called them (regarding discount code) and in less than a minute I had a cofirmation that a check will arrive at my address with the £5. At least that is what they claim.

Deals still valid don't know why its expired??

Ok for drilling into a plasterboard wall I guess, other than the motor will burn out.

very useful chart,thanks!!

Had my makita's a few years, fantastic drills, does anyone know if you should periodically charge them, even when not being used that much? Mine has ni cad batteries not lith-ion..

Ni cads should in general be fully discharged and then recharged, not just topped up.

Bought the kit from B & Q for £158 used the impact driver as its excellent.

FYI - Makita products have additional 2 years (total 3 years) on products purchased in in last 30 days. Bought mine few weeks ago, just registered confirmed 3 years warranty

Quite weird they allow you to enter the date of purchase, not sure whats stops you from entering a nearer date than when you bought it...

not sure why this is expired, still shows on Wickes website at this price with plenty in stock too

Got mine last week to replace a Black & Decker one i'd had for 10yrs or so (batteries finally gave up the ghost, but drill part was fine) - This Makita seems to be an awesome piece of kit, the hammer action is great for getting stubborn screws out. Battery recharge time from flat was around 20mins.

looking at ordering a couple more batteries - ebay ones, not genuine makita ones, anyone use them e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MAKITA-18V-3-0Ah-LITHIUM-ION-BATTERY-BL1830-X-2-NEW-UK-LATEST-PACK-/171316011229?pt=UK_Home_Garden_PowerTools_SM&hash=item27e33ae0dd
