Found 15th Jan 2014
This deal was previously posted a few weeks ago then expired. A very good price for a good bit of kit.....not quite pro standard but blows others in this price range clean out the water. Online they show as out of stock etc, but they ARE available in some stores if you go in and ask them to check. The model number is LLCDI1802-L13G. The B&Q code is 4892210127525. Ask staff to check with these codes and they should be able to locate them (if the store has them). They have been 'discontinued' but in fact are exactly the same as the Ryobi's you'll see piled up on display in the power tools section for £80......the only difference is you don't get the cheap black bag that the 'new' one comes with.

Be very careful you get the right one as there are a few different variations. Only this one scans as £49.98. There is a good chance you they will not be on display so you may have to get a staff member to hunt them down.

Great Western Road branch in Glasgow had over half a dozen stored away above the other drills. The guys at the fire desk know where they are and were very helpful earlier in helping me purchase one. As I got mine handed down to me another guy who was perusing the Ryobi drills immediately asked for one when he was told the price.

Here is a link to the B&Q page (though you can't reserve and it will say no stock):

Got one when it was last posted, great drill so far, very happy with mine.

just select report other on the original deal and enter a message to a mod to unexpire it if it was incorrectly expired. there's loads in store as I was looking at them on Sunday.

was in b&q today and saw a Ryobi corded hammer drill cheaper than this. Was in a rush so thought I would check details on the website when I got home, but can't see it on there. was around the £30 mark. anyone know which one I saw?

I picked up the two battery version of this before Christmas, great drill.
If I had known about this then I may have bought two of these instead for an extra £10
Don't forget about the over 60's discount, I took my dad to pick one up and paid about £82 in total

Great deal . Great drills. Ryobi is a german company . Plenty of torque.Small cap. battery but at this price they're a bargain. Worth buying two to get a spare battery and charger.

oap discount on wednesdays but I doubt there will be any left by Wednesday next !

use this in work, lipo battery are rubbish, make sure you keep the receipt ive done two in a year £65 each and also charge them ever so often if not in use.. you can though buy them from china via ebay for £25 (lipos)

Do they cover the battery under the warranty? I bought the drill with two batteries yesterday with the over 60 discount so 80 quid, never heard anything bad about the batteries

I have had this drill for 11 months now and use it every day at work. Got the pack with 2 batterys, I use one and keep the other on charge then swap, and they last for ages and havent had any problems, no signs of them getting weaker at all. Bargain at this price.

Ryobi is a german company .


Nope. Japanese not German. Founded in Hiroshima prefecture in '43. The Ryobi Tools brand, though, is owned by Techtronic Industries HK.

Yes, they cover the battery.
I bought the TJ Hughes deal (this drill with two batteries) posted here a couple of years ago. Both batteries failed after a couple of months never having been used. Ryobi replaced both promptly and without quibble.

Li-Ion not Li-Polymer.
The Ryobi P103 battery contains five 18650 cells for example, and the latter P107 is likely very similar. More info here toolboyworld.com/eBa…htm
That's not to say that some DIYers haven't replaced the internals of Ryobi batteries with stacks of Lithium Polymer cells, but I think that was the bigger Ryobi battery to start with.

Beware buying refurbished batteries from China, they seem to have a habit of "recycling" 18650 cells from dead laptop batteries. See this thread forums.overclockers.com.au/sho…287 and particularly follow the links there to the photos of the Chinese refurbs e.g. picasaweb.google.com/lh/…ink

I buy them and test them... if they fall short I get my money back.

I just brought the newer one with bag for same price. I rang up the store asked if they had in stock gave b&q number.

They said yes we have 3 in stock.

I said fine I'm coming to collect now.

Got there they had 1 in stock and had faulty sticker on it so manager have me new model for same price

Great customer service.

Bought one.. have stock in Trafford Park store 10 after I bought mine

Thanks OP.

Got one in B&Q St Helens this afternoon in preparation for some DIY tasks this weekend. Again it wasn't on display but a very helpful chap identified it from the web page on my tablet and reappeared with a huge orange ladder to get one down from 'above'. He said it was a new model and hadn't been put out on display yet....

Erm.... this is a Li-Ion battery and not Li-Po.....

Sounds like you were looking at the wrong one... either that or the offer has finished but given people above have purchased one today, seems unlikely.

Lots in store Holywood Exchange Belfast

You was looking at this seasons model which came with the bag.

The old one says reduced on the shelf. Best thing to do is ring a store with the b&q number. They are happy to reserve them over the phone

just picked one up at Cricklewood (London) store, quite a few left. marked on the shelf at £72ish but scans at £49.98. bargain. picked up the one plus hand vac for £21 while I was at it. very pleased with purchase. TTI are great to deal with and honour warranty claims very swiftly including batteries. heat.

would this drill through brickwork, or is it best to stick to a corded hammer drill?
I'm looking for 1 drill that will be suitable for drilling wood, plaster walls, as well as drilling through brickwork for cabling.
Cheers

I mounted a co2 alarm to a brick wall hammer drill worked good

Just called my local store in Sheffield, 14 in stock and confirmed the price at £49

Great drill and great price
Just got one from Aylesbury branch, they had 3 more left!
Many Thanks to the deal poster

Just purchased one of these, thanks for the spot! Had to get the assistant to help out as they were priced up on the isle wrong. Check the EAN number on the boxes to be sure you pickup the correct one!

hi

looking at buying a cordless drill and also electric screwdriver

was looking at the challenge one on Argos at £35 + £10 for the 4.8v electric screwdriver but just wanted to ask about this product as clearly spec wise (and build) its probably superior

1) can i use this as an electric screwdriver as well normal drill
2)how long does the battery take to take to fully charge and does it stop auto automatically when full
3) can anyone explain the torque ratings as some say soft, some hard, what the difference, will this do brickwork on a 50 year old house
4) also is see on another thread there is a £10 voucher if i take my dad (sure his lot older than 50) can i use the £10 voucher as he already has a OAP card for B&Q.

thanks

I can confirm around 9 left in b and q abbey lane Leicester store as of tonight as I was the first buyer, they were tucked away way above the other drills behind a covering, and were not for sales as yet but we're showing in stock as 10. Got OAP discount to bring it to £45.

From my initial opinion feels well built and weighs 1850 grams with the battery or1400 grams without it.

The drill and battery has a German address on it so maybe made in Germany? which would be a bonus as was expecting made in PRC

comes with 1.3 ah battery model number RB18L13

Charger is model number BCL14183H


Edited by: "benchaud" 22nd Jan 2014

to answer some of my own questions

1)can use as screwdriver(but You know that already right)!
2)charger does appear to be a smart charge and switches off when complete

3)torque showing on box as 50nm

Have some heat - I thought it was store specific but I rang B&Q Blackburn and they have plenty in stock. They reserved one for me over the phone straight away. At the till it weighed 103g underweight and looked open box (sellotaped at one end), so the nice checkout lady found the hidden pallet and got me a new one
Edited by: "naz400r" 24th Jan 2014

Have some heat! Just picked one up from Guildford branch. One up on the racking. Got the assistant to get it and check the price and sure enough £49.98!!

None in stock in Coventry store, although space on the shelf for them with a £49.98 ticket... Will check my other local later as could do with this... heat+

very good 2 more in stock at yeading

Thanks, just picked one up from Derby, heat!

Thanks. Got one picked up for me yesterday from the Cheltenham store by the father-in-law, using his Diamond card for an extra £5 off

If anyone in this area wants one, according to the B&Q stock system, there were 3 left in both the Cheltenham and Gloucester stores. None left in Swindon (although stock system said 1 left, but they could not find it).

Just got one from B&Q Killingbeck in Leeds. One left. It's behind the trade counter instead of on the main shelves.

Brought one of these last year to use as a second drill while fitting some decking. I think I paid £28 with some sort of voucher.
For the money it is very very good.
Build quality is decent and it does what its supposed to.

bought the hand-vac thing to use with the battery.....liking it a lot
