This or the dewalt dcd778 deal for £120?
What fabric is the bag made of is it made from sustainable products, also can you please guarantee no child labour was used in the manufacture, thanks

I ordered the 778 from screwfix and found the chuck really poor so I returned it and got this instead

for a DIY'er, both would probably get the job done so it really depends on whether you think you will buy other tools in the same range from either manufacturer?

This over the dewalt any day. You can use the extra savings towards a raft of other makita tools than are often on here cheap

Thanks, what did you find wrong with the chuck? And how do you find the makita? I've spent too long trying to compare the two.

Thanks, I haven't invested in any brand of tools yet but I will. So that's 2 votes for the makita so far!

Oh and ime makita tools are pretty bulletproof. I've used dewalt in the past and currently have a bosch blue combi that sits in its bag

Dewalts are notorious for wobbly chucks. Some are OK but there are complaints everywhere about it.

Makita is great, super powerful, slightly heavier than the DIY grade drills I've used in the past but not enough to cause any problems.


Just as an FYI - the batteries take a few charge/discharge cycles to reach their best as it seemed to discharge the 1st battery really quickly, but now it lasts a good few hours of use between charges.

I think I might go for this one then, or the 2x 2ah batteries with case for £120?

depends how much you're going to use it.

if you think you might use it all day, the 2x2ah might be best as you can keep one on charge whilst using the other one so you never have to wait for it to charge

for infrequent use, the single 3ah would probably be better (and cheaper)
I have one of these and I have to say, it’s pretty gutless! I use my dewalt kit for work and this lives in the cupboard at home. I’m a Makita guy over dewalt any day but this just doesn’t cut it drilling steel 😳
Good drill, good price, voted hot!

Cheers, I've just ordered it. Prefer the blue but don't want to wait so got the white.
Do you know which battery it is included (is it a "B" so it has LED indicators for charge) please?

Yes it's a BL1830B with indicator
Great price, includes fast charger as well which is good

Used it for the first time today and I'm well impressed, so much torque compared to my last crap drill, and a lot smaller. Wish I'd have bought one years ago! Cheers op
So my question is would this be suitable for screwing to n 150mm wooden screws into a sleeper retaining wall. Unfortunately my corded "performance power" has finally given up the ghost by the trigger popping out broken. Crazy the drill now just runs as soon as it's plugged in. Don't want to fork out on this if it is not up to the job. Thanks

150mm screws into sleepers would probably be a challenge for any drill to be honest, especially cordless, so an impact driver would be much more suited to this application. It would probably work but not guaranteed.

Makita do the DTD152 which can often be had for ~£50 as a bare tool

So you would buy this drill and the body only for the dtd152 and use the same battery? Would be happy with a cheap but decent corded number. Any make.

NO, get an impact driver and these or similar amazon.co.uk/150…8-4

Thanks, using these timbascrews, 150mm from Screwfix. Think they are for decking or sleepers. There looks like a decent Stanley double cordless drill and impact driver at bandq for £100 or £130 for a dewalt. Question is the dewalt worth the extra?

I would assume, based on the price and the fact you said it's a twin pack, that the dewalt kit you mention is a 10.8V/12V kit which definitely won't be as capable as an 18V tool.

For your 150mm screws into sleepers application, I'd strongly advise an 18V tool. A 10.8V/12V kit is fine for light DIY, putting things on the wall, assembling stuff etc but would struggle with more difficult applications.
Finally got round to ordering this - blue back in stock!
Thanks OP great deal. Purchased the blue one.
And mine arrived faulty too. When I release the trigger there’s a horrible sound as it brakes. I’ve got an identical one from ffx and it work’s flawlessly. Also this is a 2019 model and not 2020 like the fx one I purchased
