This is a bare unit/body only and should really be stated in the description as such.

Otherwise, you may want to put on a jumper.

Good price.

Added bare unit to the first line, should be obvious at this price mind you.

This is a good price really. I was looking at this and the cheapest I could get it was £100. I then elected for Bosch one in Screwfix. Heated added

great drill ,great price

Good price but, this seller has been flogging it cheaper on EBAY recently so might hold out a bit longer.

it's obvious to us people who know about drills..but to the other 90% of the UK it's not that obvious just going by the price

I had no idea what bare unit was until my third drill purchase when I was deciding to buy a makita as budget was about £100.

Makita=quality

Great find

there's another similarly priced bare tool makita 458z which has 88nm torque but isn't brush less at 79 on the same site. thats nearly as much as my brothers cheapish impact driver!

How much was he selling them for on Ebay? Apparently this will be my Fathers day pressie but having to do the research and picking myself

Also will the battery the OP has listed work with their lighter bodies also? Ideally want a light body for general DIY and a heavy duty one so I don't have to faff around with the corded drill/running an extension/etc. My previous cheap NiCd Makita is finally giving up the ghost and the Mrs is at a loss what to get for Fathers day (my first one :)) so thought that was a good sign as to what to get me. Guess it will also put a stop to the complaining about my tools when a job needs doing.

They were selling as low as £66.99 back in March 2015. Now at £99.95 on ebay oO
Don't get me wrong it's a lot of drill for the money and I nearly went for it as I already have batteries and charger from other units. Still tempted even at this price. This will be good as a drill driver and should suit most DIY tasks.

for the drill charger, I think it's nearly worth buying the screwfix exclusive white drill for 120 as the 3ah batt is about 60 the charger 36 blowmoulded case 15 so you get the drill for a tenner.

btw the new BL one has twice the torque of this, but is about 130

It is tempting to go for the Screwfix one, as the charge and battery are £95 on there own (I doubt the difference between 4ah and 3ah battery will matter much to me). However, my last Makita Drill/Driver lasted me a decade, still tempted to go for the Brushless DHP480, its also a bit lighter.

But what do I do, just grab the separate components. Or grab the DHP480 plus the screw fix bundle. £25 more expensive, 3ah battery. But I get a spare body (is it worth much, as I likely won't use it if its heavier then the 480) and case.
