Currently on offer.Thought this was a good price for some decent bit of kit at a decent price. Amazon have this at £359.98. Twin pack consists of a combo drill and impact driver both brushless, 2 x 4.0Ah batteries and charger in a robust case excellent for trade or keen DIY'er. Can't seem to find it cheaper. Bought today and seems like great quality drills and comes with 3 years warrantee for peace of mind.

how does this stack up against the makita range of drills. does anybody know what model it would be comparable too?

AFAIK Milwaukee is top quality gear or at least used to be, I'd say this is hot. Also I use my impact driver (DeWalt) lots, best tool I ever bought.

I honestly believe that its just personal preference of whether your a DEWALT guy/gal MAKITA or MILWAUKEE. Bit like XBOX OR PS4 AT this level they're all pretty darn good and used for heavy duty work - i would say the following set is comparable Makita DLX2007MJ 18 V Li-Ion Brushless Combi Kit( which is £355.83 at Amazon) Personally i don't have an allegiance to any particular brand it's just gotta be the best price for a quality product, which hopefully this is

Makita DLX2007 just under £280 seen here

Milwaukee still better value though (cheaper and 4.0Ah batteries) unless you've already got Makita tools.

Heat.

Got these and bosch equivalent, a friend has the makita equivalent, used them all and they are all great tools, must admit the mikwaukee just seems to have more umph and at this price it's a steal.

would all be of similar spec at this price point, models with brushless motors, higher capacity batteries or higher torque will be the selling point. i have the Makitas and they preform faultlessly

http://www.its.co.uk/pd/M18-BPP2H-413C-Milwaukee-18v--12v-RED-Li-ion-3-Piece-Kit-_MILM18BPP2H413C.htm this seems a better deal.


Good deal - but these drills are not Brushless which is the key point.. Does come with the handy torch though but you can get these for about £20-25 delivered

My Dewalt XR Brushless does wonders X)

Broadly agree, though you have to remember that you are potentially buying into a whole family of cordless tools so important to check out what other tools you want down the line with battery compatibility. I went with Dewalt because their current 18v jigsaw is so good and have also added their excellent new brushless planer to my five 18v tool kit. Dewalt's 5amp batts are the same price or cheaper than Makita 4 amp ones. IMO Bosch has the weakest line up at the moment, their impact drivers don't cut it with the competition and the 18v jigsaw not a patch on Makita or Dewalt.

The problem with brushless technology is that when the motor fails you basically chuck the tool away.

I've had some professional bosch drills with brushless technology that I've had to throw away as cost of repair was just not worth it. If they had brushes the motors would of been protected.

Milwaukee batteries used to be horrendous for reliability. Not sure what they are like now.

Have been looking for a brushless kit with 4ah batteries. Have seen the DeWalt Help for Heros at £268. Anybody got any thoughts on these?

Unless you've already got DeWalt tools I'd go for the Milwaukee and donate the £10 to HfH.



Those drills are slower and have the lowest NM of Torque from all Milwaukee brushless sets . The combi drill has Approx 67nM . At the moment there is 2nd generation brushless sets for sale for 339,00. The newest version of combi drill produces twice more torque and around 150rpm quicker than this one also set comes with 2x5.0ah batteries. Hope it helps.
