​Good for you smarty pants. Let us know where to get a Makita with two batteries for what you call "a little" more.
Bought this for same price at Argos last year (saw it on hduk and it's excellent, plenty of oomph for diy jobs, batteries last ages. Great value, one of my best buys. Some nerds drivel on about Makita, Bosch etc but this is all you need unless you're a pro when you'd obviously invest more.

Currently £99.99 at Argos (same group as Homebase). Listing states

Please note item 3338762 has previously been on sale at 74.99

"Better than half price"? It may be a good price but should be cold for the fictitious* discount.

* but within the letter of the law
I got this last time it was on offer, been great for drill and never let me down. Has a feel of quality about it.

It's shameless like begging. I get hundreds of "top posts" but lose the votes when the thread gets deleted.
Father in law bought this for £100 a few months ago, its a very good drill. Thanks for find this.

Indeed, as a pro I invested a lot more in a Milwaukee. The extra cost only gives me advantages in situations where the drill spends literally hours a day in my hands. The gap between top end tools such as the Mil/ Bosch blue/ Makita * and this Stanley is narrowing. I have used the Stanley when doing an impromtu job at my parents. For the price I couldn't fault it although it does weigh a fair bit. I'd be more than happy to have one as a back up

* IMHO the latest offerings from Makita aren't a patch on their previous generations.

Is this a better product then the 18v Bosch that's on offer for £75?

Heat added!
I'm doing a shop fit now using one of these.I've had this for 18 months and it's great for the money.I had bosch for 20 years buying everything from various drillers ,jigsaws multi tools etc....in my opinion this is just as good for the money.good enough for me to purchase another now it's at this price again.

That's the same one as linked to in post #9. Dunno if it's any better, sorry.
Looks like a great deal to me. Recently picked up a low end Makita deal at Wickes - but this drill looks slightly better spec wise and has 2 batteries. Pros and cons to both (eg 22 min charge on the Makita and 3.0ah) - but if I hadn't got that I'd have gone for this without hesitation.

According to the descriptions:
- The Stanley has a larger chuck (ie can take 13mm drill bits rather than 10mm for the Bosch). I rarely need anything that big.
- Claimed battery capacity is 2.0Ah for the Stanley vs 1.8Ah for the Bosch. What counts is the battery life in use. Capacity is only a guide as the efficiency varies.
- Based on the weights given, the Stanley is much heavier. My guess is that one weight is with battery and the other without.
- One is yellow and other other green

Conclusion - you pay your money and you take your choice. Not a lot in it other than perceptions of brand quality.
Stanley Fat Max are also expanding their 18v battery range and have made the battery universal. So if you're ever in the market for a cordless impact drill driver, jigsaw or angle grinder then that would be another reason to go for Stanley rather than Bosch. Not a deciding factor, just another benefit.
Cheers for your help, reading the specs the fatmax has quite a bit more torque and better reviews then the Bosch.
I bought the mains Fat Max drill when it was on offer a whole ago and it does feel quality also with the 3 year warranty is handy (MAKE SURE YOU REGUSTER YOUR DRILL FOR THE 3 YEAR WARRANTY).

I'm tempted by the battery ones, but don't think I use them enough and also no worries of having to get a new battery if they wear out.
I have this one and and makita... I have to admit that Stanley is better than makita and for this price it's absolutely bargain
