Just a quick look tells me its Not really as good thou is it lower speed, lower drilling capacity, lower battery amperes, a years less guarantee and no £5 voucher

This is a cracking deal for 2 batts aswell and a voucher with a 3 year guarantee..
Works out £24.99 a year
No brainer that one if your in the market for a drill/driver

I got the Bosch a few months back for £68 on the B&Q deal posted here.

It is very good.

good deal, think it was on at homebase a month or so ago and I couldn't find any in stock. However, there's currently a makita offer for £80.04 if you can find one in wickes. Its only one (bigger) battery but I'd prefer makita over dewalt (which I'm fairly sure the fatmax is?)

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2
yeah stanley is dewalt. in case that makes a difference to anyone
The Fatmax range really has given trademan more choice of late, In my opinion its not Makita or Dewalt quality but its dam good and will not look out of place on a building site. This is proven with the 3 year ticket. The thing is once you buy in to a brand you are kinda stuck with them due to battery's. I chose a Makita drill, I now have almost everything in there 18v range!. Very up and coming. I will be watching Fatmax closely. DON NOT confuse Fatmax with other Stanley products as they are a true professional range and not DIY quality.
I have this drill and its fantastic and performs just as well if not better than my Sons Dewalt. Tons of power and good battery life.
Honestly, at this price, don't even think, just buy it. :0)
bought from home base a couple of months ago for 50 quid. not sure of the differences but its identical to a dewalt bar the stickers (Stanley own dewalt). fantastic drill.
I bought this on the offer last year and it is excellent.
Got this drill it's very good, some awsome features, ie led light, magnetic screw holder on the top is excellent sooooo handy!.

I'd recommend the Bosch multi construction drill bits there freaking awesome!! (blue bits)....

Looks very similar, but I don't think it's the same one . Possibly an older model
Drill weight 3.8kg. compared to •Drill weight 1.7kg,Speed • Speed 0-350rpm/0-1500rpm compared to. 0-400rpm/0-1600rpm. Drilling capacity for wood 25mm compared to 30mm. = a big difference in battery capacity 1.5Ah capacity, compared to •2Ah capacity

Also, Dewalt replacement parts fit the Stanley.
The "differences" are just an exercise in branding.
Been waiting for a decent drill to come up to replace my aging cordless one with batteries that hold very little charge. With 2 batteries and 3 years guarantee this is a good deal.
Opinions on this one vs this Worx one please:

(Slightly more expensive)
hi. 3 years guarantee for battery and charger is included?
Looks like a nice piece of kit at a good price and good guarantee. I'm a dewalt guy myself but would certainly consider this if I was in the market.
The Worx brushless caught my eye too.

Cashback possible through quidco, also if you bank with Lloyds, check your everyday offers too.

Batteries are 1.5AH vs Stanley 2.0AH however being brushless they may have similar usage times?
Is this hammer drill better suited for diy than the 10.8 v makita kit I've been considering?

I know the price is different, but the question focuses on the needs of a diyer who is likely to drill more often than use the impact driver. The makita has great reviews , but was wondering if their 10.8 hammer drill is way underpowered. On the opposite side whether the Stanley is horrible for the occasional project that requires screw driving e.g. small shed.

I'd rather have one tool than tons that go underutilized.

Thanks

What drill bits do you recommend to buy with these???

anyone?
Any hss (high speed steel) bits
Topcashback available on this.
Only 1.51%, but still...
Just picked mine up, impressed with the build quality, almost identical to the dewalts we have in work, would recommend.

For masonry, I got these for my corded drill and they seem decent:

As long as you get a branded set, nothing cheap and nasty you'll be fine.

same here. we bought the dewalt kit that is/was £100 at screwfix, this seems near as dammit the exact same product.
Anyone know what does the magnetic bit holder means as per description of the product on Argos website. "Accessories included: 2 Li-Ion batteries, 2 magnetic bit holders, belt hook, double ended screwdriver bit and carry case."

I thought this would be a bit holder/extender which is permanently fixed to the chuck and you can just attach the bits at the end, but it looks like the slot on the drill itself to place the bit.
