Looks just like a bosch, must be good

Nice find if they have lots lol

Usually Parkside stuff is very well made for the price. Have some heat.

A quick search for info on the Lidl '3 year warranty' seems to suggest that if there's a problem you might need to post the item back to the manufacturer on your own dime for repair/replacement?

Is it in store now?

Cheaper to buy another

Every time a deal for this brand comes up I always think of Blur. I even think of the drill playing the song.

How are these for drilling masonry for occasional use?

Question, getting confused between impact drills/drivers... what purpose would this drill serve? Can it be used for undoing nuts on wheels?

Or is this basically an SDS type drill?

Although not he same sort of item, but we bought a microwave from Lidl last year.

I stopped working, so I contacted Lidl. They told me to parcel it up (I had original box, so that was easy) UPS arrived and took the item away (at Lidl's expense) as it went to Germany. A week later a new microwave arrived.

I would happily buy another electrical item here

Parkside tools are horrendous.

Parkside tools are sensational - so there!

This is standard fit, not an SDS type

We had few of them over 2-3 years. They are fine for occasional use but if something goes wrong (and it will) you can only rely on Lil warranty as spare parts are no where to be found.

We also had the flex cutter and all of them failed.

We used them at work hence I can only recommend them for diy use

Impact driver is a high torque tool but as you can see from the values above this drill only has 7.5nm torque which is pitifully low for driving screws etc. This is purely for drilling in masonry, wood and metal. Looks pretty good for £14.99 though but its not an amazing offer.

Argos do a similar drill for £14.99 except it has a keyed chuck (better for masonry) and over 3x the torque.

Drill on argos is a hammer drill?

This is currently for sale in Northern Ireland Lidl.
Same price.

Yes argos is a hammer drill which is the same as impact drill, two names to describe the same feature. Just means you can select hammer mode for masonry use. The argos model has the advantage that it has a keyed chuck which tend to be better at holding the drill bits when used for masonry. It's harder to tighten a keyless chuck than a keyed chuck which is more important for hammer action. Also the Argos drill has 25nm torque not 7.5nm so is going to be better for driving screws too where as the Lidl drill is not suitable for that. However that said the 25nm argos claim seems high.

Fair play, understand about the chucks as have worked with both. I was confusing this device with an 'Impact Wrench' which would be a nice toy to add to the collection.

It's clear from the chuck in the picture that it's a straight shank and not an SDS shank; which means that more drill bits will fit this drill than will an SDS. Also, if you do manage to find a deal on an SDS drill for this price-mark, do let us all know. And besides, unless you build houses for a hobby and not a job you probably don't need an SDS drill, if it's your job then you'll need all the help you can get if you're looking at this tool. In short, this is a good deal and not rubbish just because it's not a £5 Ferrari.

A new cordless drill deal available from 22nd January.

Bought one of these back on 8th January. Used today to drill some pilot holes in a plasterboard wall. Worked well and seems decent quality.

can I use this for screwing screws into fence panels
