Yep of course. That's what I use mine for. I rarely make any holes

Yes, it can also be used as a hammer as well.

Excellent drills - I bought one of their earlier ones maybe 8 years ago & it lasted until the battery died & I used it on two full house total renovation projects each taking months & many different carpentry jobs. If they still have a ROHM chuck, then even better... heat added

If I was to guess, I'd say around 40NM max give or take a couple of NM.

My mans a blobby, he won't do any duties

Bought one earlier this evening.
I've had a Parkside 18v ni-cd for many years and has been great, but the batteries wont hold their charge now.
This one has a 2 speed gear box - 1 for screwing (400rpm). 1 for drilling (1400rpm). Variable speed trigger. No hammer action though.
No mention of torque in the manual. Max Drill diameter: metal 13mm, wood 30mm

That's what I thought, but they had everything out that starts tomorrow - I also got a Japanese saw, some rechargeable batteries, some work gloves and a fur-lined fleece jacket - sorted.

If only I knew. No wonder they sell quick by 10

Perfect drill for most diyer's and amazing price for Li-Ion.

Excellent price, had 2 previous ni cad park sides cordless drills, these outlasted the batteries by far. Shame I just bought Makita cordless drill within the last 2 weeks at double this price #gutted !!

​is the drill any good ?

is the drill any good ?



Not used it properly yet, but the build quality looks as good as the Parkside drill I've used frequently for about 6 years and would be still using if the ni-cads hadn't died. Should be good enough for home use.

nice find or you could get a black and decker from Amazon for 48 quid

Is it possible to buy extra batteries for this 20V device?

At 20V is sounds non-standard.

Got meself a Parkside to go with me Parklife album
Now I can get some exercise!

Any li-ion/li-poly battery will come in broadly similar voltages.

A 5 cell pack would typically be described as 18v or 18.5v maybe, but the maximum is 21v.
The more expensive lifepo4 chemistry has a lower voltage per cell, but that doesn't really match with '20v' either.

I expect the voltage difference is just marketing.
Typically you'll find it a lot easier to buy batteries for popular brands anyway.

Note that if you don't mind a bit of bodging, you can replace the batteries inside the indivdual battery packs easily enough - if you want to just replace lithium batteries, most use standard 18650 batteries.
I've got some 5 cell 5ah li-polys used for EV/RC car stuff, so gutted a ni-cd pack and replaced them with these - massively better than the official protected 1.4ah ryobi units.

nice deal! love it

The thing with cordless is that the quick drainage of the battery shortens the life of their packs very quickly. Plus chances are they're recycled/used batteries from china to start with. Even the best cordless tools have this issue.

With a none brand it will be extremely hard to get replacement packs(especially after a couple of years) and you'd have to resort to a bodged diy replacement of cells(batteries). That's why you see tones of 'bare unit' cordless tools (just check ebay) as people buy them for the battery.

Pay a bit more for a long known brand as you will save yourself money in the long run in just needing to only buy battery packs instead of having to resort to replacing this.

​Whats a blobby

they have a similar looking drill in Aldi for £18. two speeds and 18v . anybody know if its similar to the lidl version ? didn't pay too much attention as looking for impact driver.

These are really decent tools but I'm holding out for the hammer drill version which is usually a tenner more.

To ''Steamachine - just needing to only buy battery packs instead of having to resort to replacing this.' I used my battery drills every day for many years and yes the batteries are the weak point. I've got through Dewalts and Bosches currently using Makitas, but never bought replacement batteries, even with these it's cheaper to buy a replacement drill, my current Makita with three batteries was less than just batteries. I wouldn't buy a drill with one battery though, when using the drill it can be putting in screws fine, then you think 'oh batteries going' and you're lucky to put in another three or four before it's flat. Slap in a replacement and carry on, or with only one, stop for an hour while it charges.

Just bought one. Going to be using it over the weekend. Got some flat packs that need to be erected, so going to be screwing a lot. Hhhmm, that doesn't sound right does it?

True, no hammer action, no torque spec, pass

how does this compare to the worx 20v from argos for £43?
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

had one of these for a couple of years. works well and good value. found it better quality than the aldi equivalents

Any one know if this has a light on it ..thanks
