Makita HP330WWX2 10.8V 1.3ah Lithium Ion Drill Driver only £59.99 @ Wickes

Found 13th Mar 2015
The Makita HP330WWX2 10.8V drill driver is a special anniversary edition, currently with 25% off at Wickes online, and click and collect in quite a few stores. From what I can see, it is actually identical to the Makita DF330DWE, but comes with one battery instead of 2, and is white instead of blue. The Makita DF330DWE sells for around £130, so even if you buy another battery at around £30, and ignore the fact that it's white, it is still around £40 cheaper than the blue equivalent. Don't forget 2.1% TCB, and if you're in the trade, you can get an extra 10% off in store with this month's trade email voucher, bringing it down to £53.99.

These 10.8v drill drivers are very light, and you'll use it a lot more than you think, they're really powerful for their size and weight.

An excellent price for one of these compact drills, I have the earlier pink charity non-hammer version and it's been a good little workhorse until the battery died suddenly. I now use the Bosch equivalent 10.8v tools including the storming little impact driver because I got a particularly cheap twinpack deal, the batteries seem a lot better (2Ah) but cost about the same as the Makita1.3ah ones.
Still, can't go wrong for this price.

great little drill well worth the money at this price. hasn't let me down yet!

I used to swear by Bosch, however, I have had 2 of their tools fail on me recently including the 10.8v drill driver (charger seems to be broken), hence why I was looking at this one.

Contact bosch directly they have a service to collect , repair and return . Usually within 5 days .

I got the twin pack including this hammer action drill driver with impact driver for £127 on Amazon a few months ago.

Verry happy with it. Good price is you need a drill driver with work light.

this will screw in masonry bolts straight into brick no problem yes?

10.8V?? Can do better with my teeth,lol

thanks, need.

You've fallen into the megapixel trap. One misleading headline figure which tells far from the whole story.

Have one of these, hell of alot of torque for the size. Great bit of kit

I'm looking for a drill for putting up curtain rails and general house and garden stuff.
Is this ok for masonry?

Any help welcome

Surely this will not go thought Brock work?

Yes it's a hammer drill, so designed for masonry. However, when you try to put up curtain rails you might hit a concrete lintel which this would have great difficulty in drilling into. OK for drilling small holes in brickwork I guess.

For getting through a concrete lintel I would recommend an SDS drill - this one from screwfix would be fine - http://www.screwfix.com/p/energer-enb465drh-4-8kg-sds-plus-rotary-hammer-drill-230-240v/63303

Its not the sort of drill you would want to carry around as they are heavy but ideal for those tough jobs.

Great drill and price, super quick charging (compared to my last one).

I also bought the twin pack of this and the impact driver. Absolutely love them. Don't read too much into the volts/amps of a drill when comparing the different models out there, do your homework and better still try them for yourself. Having the right tool for the job is so important. I recently had to drill a lot of holes in a few high ceilings when installing spotlights and not only was this drill more than adequate for the job, becasue it's so light compared to my 18v, it meant my arm wasn't falling off when I'd finished! Voted hot.

Quality Hot from me...

dunno where they pull 10.8V from. if it's 3s lipo, and it will be, then it's 11.1v. Then again companies put what ever they want. I have a little grinder that says 12v when its just 3 18650 cells. though you'd think they'd put a higher voltage rather than low as they assume people will think voltage=power.

forgot to ask is the battery and charger included?

This is a fantastic combi drill - No its not a 4AH 18v monster but its powerful, lightweight, has a great LED for dark areas (under worktops / decking / loft boards etc) its so much nicer to use as a driver rather than lug the bigger drill round. I have 2 x bigger drills and if drilling solid use a mains one anyway. Well worth £60.

Yes battery and charger + 1 battery included ..comes in a tough plastic case. 50 mins flat to full charge

Noobie question: Can I use this as power screwdriver as well? Are the drill bits standard? Thanks

Yes it comes with battery and charger and also a case.

It's a standard 10mm drill chuck, it will take screwdriver bits without any problem.

good price and good quality

It's the concrete length that sits above a door/window to support the weight of the wall above and not put the weight on the door/window. Sometimes concrete, wood or steel mainly.

Is this a hammer drill or an impact driver as someone stated its a hammer drill and it looks like an impact driver and mostly even an impact driver won't fasten a screw to a proper brick (like a pit brick etc).

I am in the trade and registered with Wickes, but I have never received anything other than the welcome email, no vouchers.

You need to go into a store and ask to sign up to their trade offers. Every month you will then get an email with an offer which is usually 10% off when you spend over £10.

I was looking at purchasing a drill / driver over the last week after binning a cheap sainsburys and thought i'd invest in something that can do the odd jobs round the house.
After a search on here I've come across the Parkside Lidl range, and recently grabbed the 14.4v Li-on drill, 2 speed gearbox on offer this week for 30 quid, is it worth upgrading to this, Makita or keeping the Parkside as its li-on battery will last even if no use after few months?

Makita are amazing. Heat.

Whenever I've tried putting up blinds I've always got stuck with the concrete lintel. I actually assumed it was one of those metal kind of mesh frames they put on before plastering round corners etc. Perhaps it was just the solid concrete though.

Damn this site is costing me that's the second purchase this week.

ordered on click and collect as have to re-fit a stair banister today , so I can let you know how it gets into internal house brick.

heat from me

If only the charging cradle was smaller. I have a cheap 10v Parkside drill that I've kept in the toolbox for the last few years; it fits in easily with its charger without taking up too much room; avoids me having to carry a separate case with my larger drills; and performs well for all the small jobs I need it for. I've been waiting for Lidl to bring that particular model back in but the last 10.8v drill they brought in had a fairly large charging cradle too.

Thanks for the heads up.

What's the trade email voucher - how do you sign up?
