For people who missed out on the recent Toolstation deal, this is the same two tools, but with three 3Ah batteries.

DHP482Z Combi Drill
DTD152Z Impact Driver
3 x 3.0Ah Batteries (BL1830)
Fast Charger (DC18RC)
MAKPAC Stacking Case

Toolstaton was £200 with two batteries, or £250 with three - so this is £15 cheaper.

My first deal - hope you like it!

great deal especially if you are just getting a new kit together no need for more batteries just get the rest you need bare body and your away, I reckon separately you would prob pay £285 or more.

awesome deal.....power tool heaven.

Good deal but risky with the 3ah batts

Good deal but risky with the 3ah batts



Why?

Why risky with 3ah batteries? I've had 2 now for 7 years and they are still going strong!

Good deal to get you started with Makita kit - nothing wrong with the 3Ah batteries at all.

I've been looking for a drill driver for DIY odd jobs like wooden decking in the garden and hanging plasterboard but keep coming across deals for the combi drill. Will it do the job just as well or should I hold out for a drill driver?

I guess it depends how much decking and plasterboarding you'll be doing! The big cost is the batteries and charger - once you have those, additional tools can be relatively cheap if you shop around.

The 10.8v ones are much cheaper. Around 139gbp. How much difference to this?

The 18v will have a lot more power, especially the impact. Depends on your use if very occasional then the 10.8 will probably be fine but if you will use it a far bit I would be tempted to go for the upgrade. You won't see many tradesmen using 10.8.

For putting screws through wooden decking and plasterboard you would be better served by an impact driver. It will be faster than a combi drill/driver and push screws through thicker/more dense material with fewer stripped screw heads.

The impact driver in this deal would be perfect for the use case you suggested, and when you need pilot holes, bolt holes or drilling into masonry the included combi drill wouldn't let you down either. you can tell I am a Makita fan!

This is a bit of a silly test but it demonstrates how much easier an impact driver makes screwing things vs a combi drill. Look at how little pressure is needed to keep the action going with the impact driver, and look at how little strain there is on his wrist compared to nearly breaking it with the combi driver:

This is a good example of how screw heads can get destroyed by drills but not by impact drivers:

If you can only afford one fr the other then get the combi drill. You will need to be careful when driving screws but an impact driver cannot drill a hole!

I think 3 batterys is a little over kill for a drill and an impact driver, the 3mah battery seem to last for ever in both.

If you are on a work site with only 2 batteries and your impact driver battery dies you would need to switch your battery between your drill and impact driver which could significantly slow you down. Having a third battery means you wouldn't need to do any swapping while the dead battery is on charge. For DIY it would be overkill but this deal seems more focused on professional / enthusiast use especially with the stacker case included.

​Thanks for the reply.

After reading the comments on the other threads it seems the LXT range has interchangeable batteries.

Can you confirm that these ones are also interchangeable? And if I would be better off going for the 199 deal also posted here.

Yes! That's the whole point of this deal - you get three batteries and two tools. You can buy other tools which fit the same batteries - from torches, to garden tools (even a lawnmower), a radio - or just other workshop type tools.

If you're referring to the Toolstation deal, they don't have any left. Their system said I was buying the last one a few days ago, but they cancelled the order as they didn't have any left - hence me going out to find an alternative supplier.

I think you meant 3Ah - 3mAh would power the drill for a second or two :-)

I wanted the third battery as I'm likely to buy at least one other tool in the near future.

If you're doing a project, there is nothing worse than having to stop for the battery to be charged. And some of my projects are at sites with no electricity, so a spare battery is vital.

What would you recommend for regular woodworking. I regularly make benches pushing 3 inch screws into 2 by 4's. Would you recommend 10v or 18v and which company? Thanks.
