Specifications:

No-load rotation speed (rpm): 0 - 2,800
Impact rate (bpm): 0 - 3,600
Max. torque (Nm): 180
Charging time approx. (mins): 60

This is a great piece of kit. Worth it for the battery alone. Also look out for the plunge saw at £69.99. Amazing value.
Good heads up OP. However, if you're indeed looking for a drill and not a driver, then may I advise that this is not it!! :-)

Fair point, well made. I'll adjust the content!

Haha, in which case, as the comment now stands, yes, I'd recommend it - I've used mine to whack in 4" screws with ease that had previously defeated both my cordless drill and a corded 850W drill.
They are also listing a cordless multi tool at £39.99 but would say the Aldi one which is still in many stores at £29.99 is better value.

Going back to this impact driver, it does compete well with units 4 times the price.
Did this come with a carry case last time it was on?

Just the cardboard box and plastic tray (annoyingly!)

bit of a deal breaker with no carry case


hope it has one this time,
heads-up, they sometimes have stock out near to closing time night before, so could try and grab one then
Great just what I need. I've been hanging on for the Lidl one, thanks for the heads up.
Purchased both saw and impact driver last year.. both have been used heavily while renovating house.. no issues both work well. Used saw recently for kitchen install,, filler panels MDF work for canopy,, great bit of kit for money..
Super, been after one for a week or so and at this price with three year warranty I don't see a risk. Cheers.
anyone know how much it weighs with battery?
Dammit, just bought myself a Ryobi one for twice the price :-(

I see that they also have an electric nailer/stapler for £16.99 at the same time - anyone have any experience of this ?
Very tempting. Trying to fight the urge!!
can you get larger batteries 2ah or 3ah that are compatible?

Not that I'm aware of but from my experience, even when I've been screwing so hard that the Mrs can barely walk, the standard battery lasts well up to lunchtime when you give it a quick charge and off you go again.

At this price, the entire package is cheaper than a battery alone for other makes so makes sense to buy 2.

This is not cheap crap, just cheap.
Does this driver take the same 18V battery as the Parkside Drill and circular saw, that were sold a few months ago?
Dumb questions from a DIY novice...

Can this also be used as a regular cordless screwdriver for assembling flat pack furniture, or will this be too powerful? What other issues can I expect?

Also can you get drill bits for this for light drilling into plasterboard walls?

I wouldn't use an impact driver to put together flatpacks becuase it also hammers the screw. I also wouldn't use an impact when screwing into rawl plugs in the wall. Use a manual screwdriver, low power electric, or a drill on a screw setting. Impacts are good for screwing into wood without making pilot holes. And not good for drilling.

I bought one of these about 2-3 years ago but it had small battery and ran out of charge really quickly and then battery failed about the 3rd time I used it. However Lidl did refund with no problem.

Have they increased the battery size now on these? Think it was about 1.3Ah last time I got one.

Just so everyone is aware Parkside tools are made by Bosch,so they're quality tools.I bought a sliding mitre saw a few years back excellent bit of kit still going strong after years of use.would definitely recommend these power tools and im a tradesman who owns plenty of diffrent Dewalt,Makita,Bosch

That is a GOLDEN bit of information - thanks for sharing.
Also did a little research before buying the sliding mitre saw.and from what I could gather from forums concerning Parkside tools was everyone who purchased was very happy with the products and lifespans lasted 10-15 year in somecases.hope this helps anyone thinking of purchasing this impact driver

Most are made by Einhell, a few others are from other companies but most from Einhell as far as I can make out.

Very good quality though, whoever makes them.

Plus £5 P&P but I'm tempted to get one as a spare for the one I own.

Also interesting is the 2.6Ah version which seems to be £20 + £5P&P. I assume this would fit/work given the same battery designation (bar the capacity itself)?

if the larger capacity battery works then it would be great!

Agreed, complete overkill (and not in a positive sense!) for flatpack furniture. TBH, I can't remember even using a drill/driver for most jobs like this, preferring a manual for these.

Normally I'd agree, as I love to keep things tidy, but to be honest, I've been keeping mine in the box and it's been absolutely fine. A case would be nice but bearing in mind the price point, I got over it more quickly than I might have otherwise!

Ah right most of the stuff I read before said alot of french forums where saying bosch made and distributed them.like you say though very good quality,I always look out for them when they come on offer in lidl.if I didn't already have 4 impact drills id definitely purchase this
Bosch, Einhell, or possibly Grizzly Tools according to this?

lidl-service.com/sta…pdf
just picked one up and it says that the 1.5ah battery and 2.6ah are interchangeable.
The batteries are stickered with model number PAP-18-A1 (or PAP-18-1.5-A1) which tallies up with what ebay auctions say. According to the box the batteries are compatible with this impact driver (PDSSA-18-A1), an angle grinder (PWSA-18-A1) and a sabre saw (PSSA-18-A1).

I wondered about compatibility with other parkside cordless tools and according to lidl.de/de/…156 and google translate, 'PAP 18 A1 battery series: Three units - three compatible batteries', but I wonder if this is a mistake because it then goes to talk about three devices ending in B2.

Anyone got a PBSA-18-A1 or PBSA-18-B2 and one of these PAP-18-A1 batteries that could confirm whether they're compatible? Not that Lidl are selling these, but I guess they may in the future, so it would be nice to know.
Oh the batteries also mention grizzly-service.eu, suggesting the batteries at least are made by Grizzly Tools.
