B&Q doing the same make , not sure if you get two batteries for £125
Excellent, I'll sell my case on there then, cos they're the worst thing ever! I'd value it at less than £0 for the ballache it gives you.
Dito. I think the op has an ok deal, worth publicising if so inclined. However I too almost immediately came up with the same spec tools as yours for similar money to the deal posted. The main plus is getting the dhp482 drill instead
You can definitely get better for around the same money if you get everything separately and forget about brushless. For example the DTD152 impact with 165nm torque and DHP482 combi with 62nm torque cost £95 combined. £110 for two batteries, £27 for the charger and about £20 for the case = £252 ish. So on that basis it's not a good deal.
Agree partly about the drill spec, not so much on the impact as i believe the 155 is excellent. Reasonable 'light duty' drill which will probably do most DIY uses. My old 452 has more than 50Nm and i consider that a light duty drill. Good if you want a light unit though. Voted hot as good price considering 5Ah batts.
Now showing as £189.19 inc vat, I think delivery is £5.75 extra. That would be a total of £194.94 18th > now £177.47 inc vat 19th - delivered.......no tracking but wonderful to get it - well done powertools uk (I have seen the weather you have)
I did try to find out today but couldn't find anything unfortunately. All I could find was in this forum post which mentioned that newer (and by newer, it seems anything with the led status lights, i.e. not actually that new any more) LXT batteries support balanced charging. So unfortunately I'm still unable to find anything to back up my original claim. Which is annoying for me as i'm an occasional DIY user - exactly the sort of person who is likely to be affected by the issue - from memory when i looked before, tradespeople who use their tools every day rarely had an issue, it was only people that leave them discharging in a drawer for weeks at a time that encountered the issues.
The price on this is either wrong or has changed, if you click on the the link it is £180inc vat
Was dithering over this and had just figured that a couple of 4.0 batteries and charger were going to cost almost £150 and then the price went up, saving me nearly £300. Phew! Expired.
Lot's of examples on YouTube of power tool batteries being charged with RC battery chargers. I have the Imax B6 RC charger. It's a clone but then it was only £13 and works just fine. You can set the charge rate and let it charge over a few hours. Definitely not as fast as charging it with the Makita charger but if your chip has locked the battery the Makita charger will refuse to charge it anyway. Your only option is to use an RC charger but only if you're certain the cells are good. If not then it's not worth the potential fire risk. Brushless? Highly doubt it otherwise that would be the first feature to be advertised. Great price for this mower nonetheless.
This OR the DCF887?
Exactly....I searched for the 887 as it's the model I'd been considering and started the post...then followed the link and realised the 787 was in the op ; ( I'd hoped the dcf895 was going to drop in price on its way out the door as it was unpopular but I liked it,but no the 887 has similar function and I think extra torque,that's ginslly the standard model having better specs. ..and the 895 refuses to drop :(
no stil FFX £66 for the DeWALT DCF787N £95 for DeWalt DCF887N
ffx back to 95 :( unleds im missing something :( Gahhh ya got me with the model number switcherooo... damn it :(
look out for usa models being sold on ebay uk i think dewalt do not provide any warranty, definitely do service/fix them
Yes! My bad. Your right it is power tools direct. Not toolstop. It's my typo. Best price I've found around. Thanks for spotting it. I had looked at toolstop before posting.
plus £5.75 delivery...These are £90.99 at amazon, free delivery if you're a prime member... https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Cordless-Tool-Battery-Packs/DEWALT-DCB546-18-54-Flexvolt-Yellow-Black/B01HRYEAP2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1497517638&sr=8-2&keywords=6ah+flexvolt
The link is to PowerTools UK, Toolstop price for these batteries is £99.00 ? PowerTools Uk are an excellent retailer and this is a good price for these batteries.
excellent price. the multitool will come In handy.
Good price but all old stock, Bosch have moved over to 12vmax (still 10.8v though) EC motors and the multitool uses an outdated mount (I managed to bully Bosch into swapping my 10.8v GOP for a 18v kit after they stopped making the sanding pad that works with the dust extractor)
As above.. HEAT ADDED Op
why the bad votes ?
I don't know how long ago screwfix got it at this price, but checking tool's prices all year round many times these guys got the best price, so personally I prefer to honour them.
Although it's a few pennies cheaper it's hardly a deal as it's about the same price at Screwfix. The advantage with Screwfix is you can pop along to the local depot and pick it up rather than wait for delivery. Link to Screwfix
The drill in B&Q is the DCD 776 (with a single 1.3Ah battery pack). The DCD 795 is a pro drill with a brushless motor and is far superior. Incidentally, the price at PowerToolsUK is now £73.74 including VAT (plus £5.75 delivery) making £79.69 in total. OfaB
some peeps need to engage their brain before opening their mouths lol You cant buy this pro model 795 in B&Q, your 'gauge' must be simply that the b&q models are same colour so must be same drill!
this is definitely not the £98 one from B&Q. it's in a different world.
this is a cracking deal. heat added
The one at B&Q is a different model, this one is far better...
This drill shares the same gearbox as the 8444 MXT but two speed only and no hammer. It punches out 80Nm of torque. I have one but paid half that price.
Used this today a fair bit - very pleased with performance - loads of torque
How do you know, did you buy one ???
The drill is definitely 14.4v :)
cheers BealBocht ......... :thumbsup: [SIZE="4"]Now £66.09 delivered[/SIZE]
[COLOR="Navy"]This seems to have dropped in price by a further fiver and is now £48.75 ex VAT or £57.28 inc VAT. Plus postage, of course.[/COLOR]
Have you got it yet? If you didn't get one, this set has a combi drill for masonry https://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189137
