I don't need one but I want one. Why is that?

Heat added, very good price.

These deals annoy me, it isn't available now, you have to be at the door when they open to get it and even then not every store will do it - that said it seems a cracking price to me - heat from me.

I rarely have trouble getting the odd Lidl that I want and have never queued at opening time. I do, however, have quite a few Lidl stores within easy reach, so if there was something I really wanted, I usually find it within a day or 2, when I check other sites as I'm passing.

How much does it weigh? A heavy one will be fine for the odd job but you would soon be wanting.something lighter if you need it everyday

I need a drill to get through lintel so I can put up curtain poles. Will this do the trick?

Thanks. :-) I tried with my normal hammer drill but just couldn't get through the lintel at all. I was told I need an SDS drill but they usually seem expensive just for six holes. Lol

I can't find the details for this, but a similar spec one at Screwfix weighs 5kg. It's for heavy jobs anyway, not to replace a cordless for lighter uses.

The last time it was at Lidl, it was posted on here and there were positive comments generally.

For £10 more there's a similar spec one at Screwfix, which comes with more accessories:

which place is easier to get replaced or repaired if they do go wrong, screwfix or Lidl? I read somewhere Lidl is a bit of headache as you have to send it back to Germany

No mention of a clutch on this drill which is a must really with any SDS drill oO

Put another way hit a snag when using this and be prepared for a broken wrist or arm!

I can't say for sure if this one does, but a poster on the previous thread for the identical looking Lidl SDS drill 3 months ago states that one had a clutch. I would think it is possible this one does too.

That is a fair concern, although in my (single) experience of having to use the Lidl warranty 2.5 years later (although not for this product), it was a UK-based company that handled it on their behalf.

What warranty do Screwfix give?

2 years manufacturer's warranty on the Titan linked to above. I suppose if Screwfix stop doing that model it may require sending off, if they don't do that anyway. No doubt someone will now come on quoting consumer law etc.!

Try and get as high as you safely can so that you are not holding the drill above your shoulders and you should be OK. Good luck.

Lou if the weight it too much just give Bazza a shout, I am sure he would be more than willing to travel the length of the country to help out a damsel in distress.

First year is the responsibility of the retailer however. But if the shop are going to send it off for repair, rather than refund, its often easier to deal with the manufacturer yourself, in my experience.

Titan or Parkside is there any difference. Can anyone recommend ?
thanks

I want to heat this, but I also want one these myself! Last time there I went later in the day and there were none left

I have a couple of titan power tools and a couple of Parkside power tools - my opinion is the parkside ones are of a better quality than titan

Titan ones feel a like budget line tools a bit like power devil whereas Parkside seem like a step-up from those.

I'm sure the rules allow you to vote it hot and buy it as well

I'm always surprised at how many people jump on these drills for seemingly general tasks. I've a 750W SDS drill thats been going strong for many years now (was from Netto I think!). I've used it for breaking up garden wall, chasing out electric runs, removing plaster, boring several waste pipe holes and drilling many holes all the way through the wall - and in fact just last night for drilling 20 18cm deep holes for an injected damp proof course.

If you're considering this for hanging shelves and hooks, you're looking at the wrong tool! Get a good 18V l-ion cordless hammer drill.

My local Lidl sells out quick of tools like this - seems there's a local ebayer who sweeps in at opening, buys the lot and then sells them on at a higher price.

cus one day you will buy a house and need to put curtain poles up!!!!

Wish they'd bring back the rechargeable reciprocating saw. Been looking for one for ages but no luck!

Thanks for the confirmation.

It seems heavier than 5kg. It was hard work to carry home. Lol.

Things always do. I remember buying a microwave and trying to carry it to my car which was a few hundred yds away. First 100 yds OK and then I had to keep putting it down each 20 yds.
