1 x 10.8V Impact Driver
1 x 10.8V Torch
2 x 10.8V 1.3Ah Li-Ion Batteries

10.8v won't be very powerful?

10.8v won't be very powerful?



Obviously not as powerful as an 18v, but a 10.8v impact driver can screw in 4" screws easily.

Depends what you want them for, easier to use a 10.8v screwdriver all day if you're only screwing in small screws e.g. installing a kitchen.

I Have the drill and use it day in day out at work as a screwdriver stripping cars, battery lays well and charges quick I'm very happy with mine and this seems like a good deal heart from me

Great for tight spaces.
I think they were £99.00 yesterday on Amazon (black Friday deal) but sold out immediately.

Amazing price!!! These are normally £160 + any other time.

you'd be surprised, these are plenty powerful enough for most jobs. I'm in the building trade and rarely do I need to get the 18v drill out because these aren't up to the task.

selco are doing the Bosch GSR 10.8v li drill driver on its own for about £100 this looks a better deal.

Just never really used makita and love my bosch. How is the quality?

EDIT the makita batteries that it comes with are also only 1.3mah? will that matter?

i know the bosch one is just a drill/driver but looks better quality and comes with 3 packs of drill bits?

I cant make my mind up!:)

The drill doesnt beat an 18v but it will have more poke than you would give it credit for. The real star though is the impact driver. Built some decking in the summer and it made me chuckle as it was this tiny driver and it knocked in 4 inch screws all day making the job so much easier than using a drill driver. Got the drill and driver for about £115, they are worth every penny.

The Bosch one is great. I've had mine for around 5 years now. Will screw a 6" screw straight into timber without a pilot hole. Very powerful for it's size.

makita in my experience (though I'm sure someone will be along to disagree!) are better than bosch, and as far as I know pretty much all the 10.8v batteries no matter the brand are 1.3mah, they last surprisingly long not that it matters as by the time you've used one battery up the other will have charged. The other good thing I found with the makita drill/driver is the led light stays on even after you've released the trigger which can be more helpful than it sounds. All the other brands I've tried the light switches off the instant you release the trigger.

I might be biased but get the makita ,bosch are good but not up there with makita.Ive had enough kit to know. Got a makita chopsaw that is about ten years old,cuts and runs as well as when it was new and its had some use. the makita batteries are £15 on ebay, get a spare and you never run out.

I'm gonna disagree with both the above - I've had the Makita and Bosch 10.8V systems, and the Bosch is the one I prefer. Just feels more solid, better balanced and the batteries last longer (Bosch are up to 2Ah now in the same form factor) and they charge quicker too. The Bosch bare tools are cheaper too (FFX are quite good for them if people are interested) so you can expand your tools cheaply once you have a few batteries and a charger.

By contrast, I have Makita 18V kit over Bosch, as I prefer Makita in that range - but as mentioned above there are very few times I bother to grab the 18V combi out now - the 10.8V Bosch tackles pretty much anything you ask of it (and is light enough to hold all day), or you need to break out the SDS for 'proper' drilling.

For those saying not very powerful: I have drilled into brick / masonry no problem with these. Finding them really handy to have around, especially as I am boarding out my loft and don't have to keep switching bits in the drill / driver.

Depends what you want the drill for, personally out of the 2 i'd go for the 10.8v. The B&Q drill is pretty basic.

These are quality drills / screwdrivers and good battery life / rapid charge makes the ideal for most jobs. This is about £15 cheaper than I paid for 2 and I don't regret that for a second. Wasted time with cheaper sets before but wouldn't make that mistake again. Thanks for posting - great deal!

I've got the drill/driver on its own and its a great bit of kit. Light, nimble and powerful. Not quite up to the strength of my bigger Dewalt but great for those general jobs round the house and brilliant for plasterboarding.

I have these and this is superb value for both drivers with two batteries

Love the quality of the bosch kitkit but this is a lot of kit for the money.....

Ordered after a little hesitation. I leave many small jobs here and there at home just because I don't have the right tools. This will give me enough motivation to get the jobs done and make it a worthwhile investment.

I have used these before when I was helping a friend at his, very powerful and practical being very lightweight.

Thanks OP.

Good price for excellent set. Had mine 3 years. Batteries starting to lag a bit now, but can't fault them considering used nearly every day.
Ideal for kitchen fitters to get into those tight corners.

Good deal for sure as it is with 2 batteries and a case

Many DIYers have never used or seen an impact driver.
Once you've used one, you will look at the device as if it were black magic.
Screws which you previously couldnt imagine screwing into a piece of wood, is effortlessly handled by an impact driver.
Its like a hot knife through butter.

There are many cheap drills around.
There are rarely any cheap deals on impact drivers.

For £115, this is a good deal.
If you can get it for £100, it'll be an absolute steal.

Nope, the 'normal' price is about £135

That was the set without the torch and with a drill/driver rather than hammer drill/driver. Personally I prefer these (and have a set but without the torch), hammer is good to have even on a 10.8V set, goes through mortar fairly well.

Are the batteries interchangeable with othere Makita products ? or which is the best family to buy into for this ; bosch ,black& decker ?

They are interchangeable with other Makita 10.8v models...

e.g. recip saw http://www.buyaparcel.com/p/cordless-reciprocating-saws/makita-jr100dzw-10-8v-white-recip-saw-tool-less-lithium-ion-li-ion-reciprocating-saw-bare-unit/

But they won't be interchangeable with most other tools, e.g. 14.4, 18v etc.

Brilliant clear answer mate have a great weekend.

I have the drill and impact driver - both good for most DIY tasks. The drill struggles in masonry beyond 8mm in breeze block based on my experiences but is small, light weight and great for plasterboard and wood work. The impact driver is good but not sure that it is better than the drill. This deal is a good price.

really good price.
I bought Screwfix own Erbauer brand set a year or so ago for £100 & they get a lot of use.
Ideal for DIY jobs with brick & plasterboard & really light. Quite happily coped with laying some decking, etc. Just not good into brick.

Looking on their website, there is a Titan set with no torch for £70 which maybe good value for others.
