Found 18th Jul 2015
There is a 15% off promotion for online and reserve and collect orders on diy tools this weekend. Also 4.6% topcashback makes this a competitive price for a Stanley/dewalt manufactured drill.

Mxer450 also mentions a £5 off voucher on 'paint us a picture' review service to get this even cheaper. Need to review a previous homebase purchase

There is better price on upcoming Bosch but that has lower battery capacity and smaller chuck and only 2 year warranty unlike the Stanley.

i used reserve and collect and had to make sure they applied the discount as shown on my online reserved order and get them to mark order as collected to ensure cash back tracks correctly

Topcashback expires tomorrow but 15% off until Monday

Just to be clear You pay £76.49 instore and then get topcashback on this price to bring total cost to £73.50ish

That's a good price with two half dent batteries!

I believe Stanley are made by dewalt or vice versa so will probably share some components and similar build quality.

This is a good piece of kit. Good torque and reasonable batteries (though the title should say 2 x 2Ah not 2 x 2mah which would be a bit weedy!). Stanley (strictly Stanley Black & Decker after buying B&D in 2010) is the name of the American company which makes Stanley, Black and Decker & DeWalt. B&D bought DeWalt in 1960. Unfortunately DeWalt isn't really the premium brand it used to be and the top-range (heavy duty) B&D stuff is just as good as the mass market DeWalt deals you find these days. I went to Makita the last time I bought but I was very tempted by these Stanley drills which seem very well regarded and much cheaper - i.e. a bit of a bargain at this price. Defo gets some heat from me (which hopefully now makes it hot!)

. Thanks title now fixed

brilliant drill. couldnt live without. batteries last ages and quick recharge.

bought one when Argos had them 1/2 price, excellent drill.

great drill I payed 85 and use daily at work for past year n half batteries still going strong and charge fast

Thanks OP. Reserved one. Was going to wait for the Bosch deal posted yesterday which I also voted hot - but this one ticks all the boxes and I can get it tomorrow.

Thanks OP, heat added.
Reserved for collection tomorrow.
This will replace my aged Nicad drill :-)

I'm very tempted by this, the thing that puts me off is the batteries on these cheap drills tend to be either hard to find or ridiculously expensive (as in probably more than batteries twice the capacity for a higher end brand like makita), so in a couple of years when they're worn out you may as well buy a new drill. But then it is a lot cheaper to begin with, i just hate chucking something because you cant get a battery.

Fantastic price, £149 in Argos and there supposed to be the same company X)

Might have to get one in the morning replace my old nicad Makita with eBay special battery which is carp. Thanks op

3 years guarantee, I wonder if that includes the batteries?...

Stanley doesn't sound good for some reason!

Batteries and charger are excluded from the extended warranty but think they are covered for the first 12 months under the standard warranty.

Need to register purchase within 4 weeks to get the extended warranty according to the paperwork in mine and the Stanley website

A few of the lads in work had problems with these, just stopped working altogether! Hilti all day for me.

I bought one of these 3 years ago and I use it heavily everyday at work and i mean heavily. It has been amazing and has never let me down, I am actually tempted to buy another one so I can have 4 batterys and 2 chargers, although saying that these batterys last a fair bit but always handy as charging points at my work are always taken up by other peoples drills/head torches. Don't let ppl put u off with makita/dewalt etc..... alot of my work colleges use and end up prefering mine to theres, if i was to name one tiny thing wrong with it and this is at a push is its abit heavy due to all the metal internals, especially compaired to the smaller drills. but it makes p for this by battery time and torque.

I've just read the reviews on Amazon and it seems that this is very good. I keep promising myself a new combi-drill as my ageing 10 year old De-Walt is now smelling a bit of burning and 1 of the Ni-Mh batteries has failed (plus the other isn't great), so may have to take the plunge. Still 10 years use aint bad at all.

By all accounts this is made by the same group and so should have similar qualities to De-Walt.

... I will post back in another 10 years and let you all know

"one in the hand is worth two in the Bosch."

Longer warranty, bigger batteries, more torque, bigger chuck 13mm instead of 10mm and in your hand tomorrow for £10 more.

Bosch is slightly smaller if your working in smaller space.

Both get very good reviews so I think either would be fine for most users I just didn't want to risk no stock at b&q and also prefer the look of the fatmax

Having worked for SBD (Stanley, Black & Decker) I can thoroughly recommend Bosch or Makita. Wouldn't touch their stuff with a 10 foot barge pole.

I bought a load of B&D and Stanley stuff before I left at half price from the staff shop and none of it was any good.

DeWalt, Bosch and Makita all make good stuff but if you an 18v drill for £100 in B&Q it doesn't matter what name is on it, it will be rubbish. They normally have different versions of the same drill in terms of spec but with different qualities but the decent ones will be 2-3 times the price but are cheaper in the long run as they last many times longer.

Or the £100 Bosch at screwfix?

Think I'm going to go for this stanley one.

These are probably frowned upon because of the make

I got this one and no complaints whatsoever.

First world problems.

Stunning deal on the best DIY (and better) drill on the market. It used to have metal gears and metal chuck unlike others - Bosch etc. which were plastic based. Have owned one for 2 years with the 1.5 batteries. Buy one - you will not be disappointed is my honest advice. 3 year warranty too.

From Stanley users forum - note the upgrade now to 2.0A batteries. Hope this is a deal breaker.

They're sold in Argos and homebase at the moment, that's all down to exclusivity agreements and things that go on behind the scenes. I'm sure someone could tell us more, but I'd probably go to sleep while they explained the decisions on where things are sold and why!

The target market as I perceive it is trade and high end DIY. I've found all the fatmax power tools I've used to perform as well as high end kit. There are obviously savings made, but not where performance is concerned. You are still getting metal gear boxes, li-ion batteries etc. Batteries are only 1.5 ah which saves a bit of money, and the kit boxes are obviously much cheaper to produce than the likes tough boxes and tstaks. Other than that, mine gets abused day in day out and is preferable to me than my expensive metabo cordless in all but battery runtime.

Batteries are 2Ah in this set your looking at the old one which had complaints about the chuck coming loose but they fixed that and changed to the bigger batteries in this edition.

Thanks for that info. I assumed the chuck and gears were still metal as in the old, my version? Still, that said you cannot go wrong with this drill at £76 is my opinion - I might even buy one myself now, all things considered- so much for so little

Chuck is definitely metal and I would assume gears too but cant find it mentioned in documentation or on Stanley site
