Brilliant drill. Had mine for couple years and done loads of projects with them. Battery life still very good. No problems.

Thank you for comparison. Been after a drill for ages. Reserved the 74.99 for pick up tomorrow. I rarely use the drill so the smaller battery one be fine for me.

Agree - also have 18v model of this. A year old, just for stuff round the house. Can’t fault it. Drills bricks fine.

Cracking drill. Tons better than the cheapest DeWalt which generally costs minimum £100 and comes with crappy 1.3mAh batteries.
Abused one of the 2ah drills, used on site. after 2.5 years it broke , I had a email receipt and Argos gave me a new one.
Still going strong. I originally paid £54.99 for it though. Highly recommended.

Nothing, just marketing - some offer higher voltage figures on the premise the buyer will assume it’s better.

But the truth is they are both equally the same in performance.
Great drill, just finished full house refurb (5mths of use and abuse) and I can't say a bad word.


(the only thing I don't quite like is the position of the led light)
Another fan of the 2Ah drill here, had mine for 3+ years and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
Ive the 2Ah version too. Recommend it.
Half price with any drill

Ive done a full house refurb with my Bosch psb1800-li2. I thought it would give up after the whole abuse it got but didnt miss a beat. If I had a chance i would have gone for the fat max or ryobi at that price but when I needed it there was no better offers than what ive got for £89

Should I go for this one, or this instead: screwfix.com/p/b…16t

They have the WORX Cordless Brushless Hammer Drill With 2 20V Batteries for £99.99 but have no idea if they're any good.
which brand is generally considered better for cordless drill? Bosch or Stanley?
I have this drill. Great bit of kit!

A while I back I did a lot of research (and testing) and discovered this drill to be the most back for your buck by a wide margin. And that was at the original price!

I now own this drill and use it regularly. With a second battery on the (very quick) charge, it's always ready. Ignore the so called "top brands". They are all made by foobar.inc! This drill hammers them!

HEAT!

Thats great to know. Collected mine today. Looks good.
I have the 2v battery version for two years and it's been great . I would say that it was £85 two years ago . But I don't have a time machine so heat
Good drill still remember prices last year at homebase that was bargain

Nice find - this is a good price! Even though the batteries are 1.3ah it is plenty for the D.I.Yer
Pay the extra and go for the 2ah one. £15 no brainer here's some reasons why

Metal chuck
Metal dewalt gearbox 2 speed
2.0ah batteries
Battery health monitor
Led lightning
Magnetic screw holders on top
All important belt clip/hanger (a must)

...Gone up to £99 now. Hopefully back down again after the bank holiday. Otherwise I can get one from B and Q with the OAP discount for £90 (or £85 with the £5 introductory discount perhaps).
