Thanks Dozstanford. What would be the minus points in your opinion of this …Thanks Dozstanford. What would be the minus points in your opinion of this drill and do you have any experience of Stanley after sales/warranty?by the way it may be easier to use the app for reply, as I am, and therefore no cursor etc to wrestle with

The app is now rubbish too.

I give up, I was trying to write up my hands on experience with this drill …I give up, I was trying to write up my hands on experience with this drill and my thoughts on it but the hotukdeals site is just garbage, the cursor jumps around so much it's like it's having an epileptic fit, you try and delete one thing and the cursor jumps to a different line and you end up deleting something else and that's if you lucky that an entire line does get wiped randomly. 15 mins wasted and three paragraphs down the drain, I don't know why I waste my time.Drill =4/5Stanley Warranty = 3/5HotUKDeals Website = 1/5, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, because all you'll do is break it... which you have.



Sadly so true, HUKD site designers need a kick in the virtual nuts for somehow making a wonderful site into a complete mess. I blame damned mid 20's hipsters drinking soy flat lattes and designing website whilst stroking their ginger beards and wriggling in their drain pipe trousers. Well that's the image I have of web designers nowawdays.

They sound like OK youngsters, unlike the persona you have chosen for yourself.
Great value,2.0ah and brushless the bees knees.
Just read one of the reviews "Don't put water on the drill",Hello its electric!
Have not used the ap but on Firefox/Win 10 no problems.

Brilliant drill, nothing compares at this price.
brougt mine at 29.99 one year ago from homebase.........great for my needs
you can't go wrong with something that's part of the DeWalt family
DeWalt built drill. Great batteries and power. You'll struggle to get anything better at this price. Very quick charger too
There is an 18v brushless hammer drill on the same website with two 2ah batteries a case and also a 3 year warranty but it's made by Worx. Are they ok? Cheaper as well

Perhaps, but I'm a confirmed idiot and not a web designer. I do as my persona dictates, act like an idiot and the same should be true of the web designers of this site. It was a fine site until they recently insisted on changing everything that wasn't broken.

Ok I'll try again.I have had the drill aprox 2 years, I got it from Argos …Ok I'll try again.I have had the drill aprox 2 years, I got it from Argos for £79.99.Up until March of this year it had only seen light use (6 to 10 charges).In March 2017 it was used heavily for aprox 3 months (used daily comparable to that of what a trades person would be using it to completely strip a double hall and landing with two flights of stairs back to the stud work and bricks and then rebuild).Around April the chuck developed some wobble where a 1.5" deep hole using a 7mm bit in brick created an 8mm entry and aprox 9mm at its deepest, not an issue for drilling but the vibration is noticeable and fatiguing, moreover it is more of an issue using the drill as a driver.In the final weeks of the big project the clutch intermittently started to slip and I would wager the drill wouldn't last another big project, although it is still usable and the batteries appear to still hold a decent charge.Ok after large section being wiped of this post as I write it for the 5th time, I give up, all I can say on the warranty is if you have a problem post on their forums (http://www.stanleytools.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=20), don't call or take it back to the shop (which you can do within the first year of purchase as per UK law).Yet another wipe, sigh, anyway sorry for the incomplete info, trying to post is becoming too much of a chore.For the record if it were not for the fact I bought the Bosch Blue 18 V-Li with 2x4ah from amazon a while back for £120, if I needed a new drill I would defo consider this deal.


Great effort and contribution and thanks for persevering. You do deserve a badge

Just to put into context the amount of work undertaken during the 3 months …Just to put into context the amount of work undertaken during the 3 months of heavy use, a hall and landing of two flights of stairs (3 floors) were literally taken back to the brickwork and stud beams. Ceilings were rebuilt, stairs, skirts, doors, bannisters, handrails and frames were replaced and a floating landing was even constructed, not to mention some 40+ sheets of plasterboard were erected. It paid it's due but to be fair such a job was a bit much for such a drill and it is knocking on heavens door.


So it's definitely a diy drill but of the more capable / well made.Explains the 3 yer warranty in a way.

I would say it was above and beyond any B&D, Bosch Green, Aldi, Lidl drill …I would say it was above and beyond any B&D, Bosch Green, Aldi, Lidl drill and should be more than enough drill for the average person, but for the trades person or someone who rarely calls on the talents of a professional who wants a drill to last, something more durable is required, like you say it does have a 3 year warranty but it can take time to get it fixed or replaced, which is fine if you arn't using it to earn a living or to undertake time critical work.



Sound :
I've got this and paid just over £100 also bought separately the drill and I have to say it's damn good. Battery life is good and of course you have a spare charging whilst your using the other. In my opinion even at the price I paid this is well worth buying and won't let you down.
Am I right in thinking this is basically a DeWalt drill in disguise? Looks very very similar to my DeWalt drill.

Stanley Black and Decker own the Dewalt brands and I think I read they're very similar. I think Black and Decker are now the budget, Stanley are the mid range and Dewalt are their higher end models. No doubt they'll try and standardise their products as much as possible
Just purchased one today and it looks good.
Thanks

Id like to agree but once you've had first hand experience doing web design you wouldnt believe how difficult it is to design a website like this and make it stable, with the website being solely reliable on customer interaction and a good chunk of javascript.

If you want an all purpose drill as capable of screwing as drilling brick then the Fatmax is the obvious choice, if you were more inclined to flatpack construction or light duty work then the Makita is all the drill you need.For the record I believe the Makita has has an all metal gearbox, but neither are brushless...obviously considering the price.



Hi there - I'm pretty sure this Stanley one is brushless. It's one of the main reasons I'm thinking of buying it. Apart from the other stuff you list?

I stand corrected, when I googled the specs for both drills to get Torque …I stand corrected, when I googled the specs for both drills to get Torque and drilling dimensions I found not mention of either being brushless but now that I google "stanley fatmax combi drill brushless", it does indeed appear to be, my appologies.



LOL - Thanks. I just wanted to clarify for others too. I have it reserved to pick up this afternoon. I guess I'm going to be decking this bank holiday weekend!!!
