They won't be. But don't punish them and keep the receipt for 3y guarantee and they'll be good around the house.

Good timing, I've been after an impact driver for a while and I've just toasted my last drill!!

It was the third battery that helped as well, pretty much all my previous power tools have had to be binned because the battery died and I couldn't get a replacement.
are these better than your Aldi-Lidl stuff

Aldi - Lidl stuff is good but the stanley brand also have black and decker and dewalt as sister companies so I would rate stanley higher. They have been making powel tools for ages for both DIY and trade.

Don't be so sure. I am not sure about these new ones. The older ones with battery level check and magnets on side are pretty good for any household even s more advanced diy will love it professionals are professionals you know boys with guns ahh it holds more ammo (battery/h) and so on i have a mate with his makita worth double the money i paid for mine and hi struggled with it to keep up. And his batteries died after a year of no use i took mine and i had no issues maybe the first charge was quicker but it was normal on the second one and i bought another one after 3 years and the batteries last as long as the old ones and it was for 35£ with 2 batteries and charger wow.. hey can't blame that i have done a house reno from brick to joists floors and so on still going strong. Ah one issue the new compact charger doesn't seem to want to charge much the old brick charges the new ones and the old ones.. Hope this helps, don't start to bring up that dewalt business i think they are as good as any other decent tool out there maybe a touch better on features sometimes.
For those that have bought this online, have you had any more contact about it? I've had a text message saying there is a system error which may potentially delay the order. I'm not in a hurry for it so I'll wait for any update, but I could do with knowing whether online orders are being cancelled and I should start the shop-based wild goose chase.

There's a note online saying not stocked in stores although that said it was but that was a couple of months ago.

Hope you get sorted
Anyone know the torque on the drill or impact driver?
Can anyone comment on battery compatibility?

if Dewalt is a sister company here, are the batteries interchangeable? Ta

doesnt work for me - it saya applied but when going all the way through to payment it still shows as £100
That is a hot price - I am resisting, although it would be nice to have, I don't really need it.
Still, so very tempting...
Would these be good for drilling into bathroom tiles. Obvs with the right tile bit.
I have the all metal chuck 2ah drill, absolutely faultless, excellent piece of kit..

Just hope they haven't scrimped to much on there new plastic chuck range. Unsure if I'd buy one because of this???....
Thank you, ordered
Is a brushless version worth the extra cash to the average DIYer?

Anyone know the torque on the drill or impact driver?


The drill is very capable to to drive in 12cm wood turbo screws with ease not even the slightest struggle. Battery tends to hold all the way with no issues once its out just cuts off lets you finish a screw that you started with short power bursts/stops and so on. Not sure about impact driver.
as the other post said, any info on compatibility between these batteries and dewalt XR?
What torque is the drill unfortunately in our line of work 2Ah is no good we would require a ideally a 4AH and/or 5AH battery however that can easily be purchased at another date and desperately.

The torque required would be around 70 for the drill, could anyone advise?
Edited by: "X-Ray" 10th Sep 2019
I got the next model up for £150 and it is good the impact driver lasted a whole day while constructing a 70 foot fence with over 1000 screws used. The £150 one is a higher 2.0 Ah diy.com/dep…prd

Whilst not 100% certain I think the drill is a FMC626 which has 47nm max torque

I got a Lidl impact driver on a whim some time ago (about £40 I think) and it has dealt with everything I have put it through so even though I am sure this is a good bit of kit don't be put off trying the cheaper non brand varieties if you want to save a few quid!
FYI there are some DeWalt XR drill & impact driver sets on eBay, IIRC around the £140 mark (before 10% discount today)
Frustratingly I've now waited two days to be told that it's out of stock and I've got a refund. Even worse is that I've now gone back online, I can see it's still available for click and collect so I've just reordered it!!

I'm not holding my breath, if they cancel this C&C order I'll report back.

Bizzare that but to be fair B&Q gets feedback on HUKD so it doesn't really come as any surprise

Good luck

This is my first experience with mail order from them, and it's highly likely I won't be doing it again...
Yep, my order for delivery has been cancelled too. Thankfully, as soon I got the email telling me there was a problem I ordered one for pick up in store (plenty in stock at thurrock B&Q) got it and its a good bit of kit. Not sure it will last 20+ years like my old makita (and that took some serious abuse when I was a chippy) but definitely good enough for some serious heavy duty DIY projects.

Might be worth trying to order for pick up from store according to above comment?
B& Q are having "tech issues" - They are cancelling all orders
Just had the same problem - go through online checkout and right at the end it says collection delay due to stock no 😣

Walk in to (Telford) store and they have a display with about 5 boxes of these kits still available.

So definitely easiest if you can, just pop into a store and ask.

I picked up the reciprocating saw also from the range whilst I was there too which looks fairly good.

Quick first impressions:

+ ‘chunky’ solid build feel and a little larger than expected.
+ Good weight and I’m assuming (once batteries added) will be nicely balanced.
+ funky little ‘man bag’

- ‘man bag’ has pockets etc in outside but nothing inside to clip/secure the units too (Velcro etc) or any real additional storage for bits & extra batteries etc.
- charger seems okay but very small ‘clip on’ connection; not sure how long that will last.
- No accessories; perhaps I was expecting a bit much for the price but it seems a little harsh to call this a ‘kit’ when it doesn’t even have a single screwdriver bit included....just the single lonely empty space on the base to store one :/

I don’t have any practical experience with any other set (my first cordless kit) but compared with kits around a similar price point (Einhell etc.) I’m hoping that the actual performance will win back some points as the dinky 1.3ah batteries and no accessories makes me wonder if I’ve made the right choice :/

Will give it a run out tomorrow and see how it fairs, but slightly underwhelmed so far tbh. Hope this helps other folks considering buying.
Richy.

Don't forget to claim your free battery with Stanley
Yep, just returned home with one I picked up at Tamworth. Plenty of stock everywhere, forget about home delivery.

Looks to be good units, I agree with the points above but my tools don't live in the manbag/carrycase/etc when I buy them so the bag wasn't an issue for me. The third battery is, and now to see whether that process was as painful as the B&Q order itself. Hopefully not as it's a Stanley promotion rather than B&Q.
