Personally i'd recommend this one

diy.com/nav…839?skuId=13499666

£20 more, but a 3 year warranty and Makita are a top brand

Seems like a good deal, but I've been waiting for a decent deal on either a Makita or DeWalt for around the same price.

I have to say that I do like Bosch, though the seem to get a bit of a mixed review here. Certainly Makita seems to be highly regarded. I have a Bosch 650 corded drill (The 680 is only £25 at B&Q at the moment!) and just got the Makita cordless.

Only a DIYer myself, so cant offer an expert opinion, but personally i'm chuffed with the Makita, it's a lovely small drill although a bit weighty - though that's also reassuring of the quality. Comes is a nice fabric case, 2 batteries and quick charging. My brother in law is an electrician and said I'd never get a better drill for the money. Guess it depends on the use, for putting up shelves, pictures etc. i would think the little bosch one would be perfect, but for anything a bit more manly i would've thought the Makita would be more suited.

DeWalt is owned by Stanley Black and Decker, so you can rest assured this will be a half decent drill for the money, certainly good enough for the average DIYer...

the battery's on makita don't last the drill will go on forever but not the battery's they cost as much as the drill to replace.the higher the a page the better.

I have this drill and can highly recommend it. I havem't been able to find a single negative review.

Here go the kiddies - this drill blows the placky maki outa tha H20. Buy one for goodness sake. Undeer £80 - it is a gr* DIY+ drill. Probably the best on the market. Buy two - one for the girlfriend and one for the ball and chain.

PS I have one and a host of big drills - AEG being my fav of all time - this is a wonderful tool.

No way is that Makita better than this, That's the DIY version, Which is about as poor a drill as any no name drill out there, This drill is a real bargain at 80 quid.

It is £100 opposed to £80. The Stanley blows it to pieces + has 3 yre warranty too + 1.5 Ah batteries + 48N torqu + it is a balanced tool( I have one) + + + + . The power of advertising and brand loyalty has a lot to answer for. Buy the Fat max and enjoy!

Hi Snoopy - looks like you finally found yourself a decent drill at a great price! Really good looking spec at first glance. Batteries a little lacking in capacity but at least there are two of them. Looks good and that's a cracking price. FWIW if you happened to be a Lloyds Bank customer with one of their debit cards then there may be a potential 10% cashback on Homebase purchases.

Anyway, this is sitting at 99 degrees. A few more from me should get it HOT (which it deserves!) Bravo!

Hot - Excellent drill with 2 Li-Ion batteries

Great price....I own one....it's excellent....get it...you won't be disapointed if you need one.

Looks a good drill pity I don't need 1 atm

it says £99.99?

20% off until 1 January

Excellent Drill,you will not find a better drill in that price range.

I did notice that lol sorry:). now just need to find the extra 77.98 that I need to but it lol.

FWIW zooming in on the Homebase pictures suggests this is the FatMax FMC620LB. If that's true then the full spec can be found at http://uk.stanleysites.com/powertools/hammer-drill-18

Spec says it has 48Nm of torque (very good). Battery capacity is 27Wh, which is again very reasonable. This is a heck of a good package for the price.

The Homebase site says it has a 1 year warranty but the link above also has a click thru to register for the (free) 3 year warranty.

There are 5 available from Argos Ebay
Refurbished with a 12 month warranty

£62.99 Delivered

Item number 360823874548

cheers gone for it.

Thanks OP. Ordered, been after one for a while.

tizzyone

cheers gone for it.



Me too

Do they still do the 1p off per litre if you buy home base gift vouchers from morrisons on fuel? Could save 8p per litre too

heat added, this is more than capable for DIY use, tempted to get one as a spare for work.

I have one of these, purchased from Argos eBay outlet at £60ish. When it arrived it looked brand new, hardly a refurb.

This is an excellent still, very solid, metal chuck too. Better than the budget offerings from a few big names.

£79 of a great price from the high Street.

Does not work! Did it ever?

Jesus eggman, of you're like this over Christmas I'd hate to be around you for the rest of the year.

No one is saying'go buy the Argos one', they're just giving comparison. Eg £62 as a refurb was good, so less than £20 more for high Street price with 3yr warranty is excellent.

Think.

What's wrong with it?

your correct it does not work....BUT after going to the website and typing it in the search it came up

further to add...a spare battery is £44 but the drill is 80 with 2 batteries - does not take a genius to work out what to do if you need batteries

So, where is the £63 delivered? It is, as I have always stated, a blooming good drill for DIY+.

Think!

How does the Stanley compare to this Hitachi for £10 more?
