True. But the entire Lidl (Parkside/Einhell) drill kit @ £34.99 costs little more than the price of a replacement trigger switch alone (for a Bosch/Makita/DeWalt drill.) The Parkside/Einhell drills are a very cost-effective and sensible option for 'light/occasional use'. I've had my Parkside/Einhell mains drill for about 7 years - still going strong.
Oh nice, really 7jan starting sale in lidl ? :-O
Buy cheap buy twice nuff said , what you going to do if you take it out the box second time in three years time and it goes pop?. It’s the same with cheap drill bits yes they are cost effective for the one use you get before they snap . Bosch spares are expensive Bosch drills are expensive for pro stuff and I have a few but as yet I have never ever needed to replace any parts on mine apart from brushes and I use them daily . Yes this is a cheap drill if you only want to use it once a month .
I've got the hammer drill and standard drill from this line, cost next to nothing and work great, done loads of DIY jobs with them.

I get the impression most people in the market for Aldi drills wont be using them daily. I've used mine on a weekly basis for about a year now on a range of DIY projects and theyve been fine, binned the attachments and used dewalt ones, not had any issues. great VFM
Had no issues with lidl tools for the past 6 years, used daily in the workshop and never had to use the 'better than most' warranty.

Most people using power tools for their trade will most probably not be buying park side, I would think most people (for diy use) would rather buy this for £35 with a 3 year warranty than a Bosch at £112 + the extra chuck (for normal bits) + chisel.

Thanks OP I have had both Bosch and Parkside/Lidl and Aldi power tools, the Bosch ones packed up the Lidl/Aldi ones are still going, I only do DIY but on my children's homers as well as mine so my tools are well used.

Baloney I’m a tradesmen there’s no comparison these are bottom
Of the range budget tools there’s no comparison with Bosch or makita it’s like saying your Chinese drill bits outlast ruko bits ridiculous pull the other one . I bought an Aldi sds drill a heavyweight heavier than this one it lasted two weeks of moderate use . There’s a clear market for crap tools and it’s usually people with little knowledge or skill or need .
Thats a huge one.

But you're a tradesman. most people buying a Lidl power tool aren't going to be using it as a tradesman tool, they'll be using it for incidental jobs. I've been using mine on all sorts of DIY projects and not had any issues, and if it packed up in 2 weeks you've got the guarantee/warranty so you havent really lost out on anything.

Yup , swapped it for a years supply of smart price lube which comes in very handy for clients who don’t want to settle up and I have big fists trust me .

I have one of these from years gone, chiselled out my fireplace with it. Quite powerful and really lightweight compared to the competition. Perfect for DIY. I knew a builder that had one as a backup and for the dirtier jobs, he very much rated it.
Do these have a clutch?
Touchy subject this, but I'm an occasional diy-er and I bought this Screwfix drill from a previous deal. It was £19.99 then.
The supplied bits ain't much kop, but a decent set of masonry bits later and it completed a flat renovation.
But yes, if my job depended on it I'd probably invest a bit more.

screwfix.com/p/e…65v
I took approx 30 ft x12" deep of concrete out with a Silverline SDS and 1 silverline bit at around 40 quid all in...did the job,cheaper than renting one, even if I never use it again it's paid for itself...not all cheap tools are crap.

Re. Lidl/Parkside drills = Einhell manufactured.

I'm starting to question the above statement. Certainly, past years' Lidl/Parkside mains drills have been of Einhell manufacture/supply. But the Lidl/Parkside £34.99 drill of this particular posting (Parkside PBH 800 A1) has a body that doesn't resemble any Einhell drill that I've seen, nor does the supplied Parkside blow-moulded case resemble any Einhell case that I've ever seen (corner metal catches). Therefore, it is possible (albeit improbable) that Lidl have changed their supplier of mains drills to another manufacturer. If that's the situation, the quality of the PBH 800 A1 might be worse than that of an Einhell product (ouch!). Conversely, the quality might be better than an Einhell manufactured drill. Who knows? But for £34.99, it's worth a punt.

I gave sound advice then as a one off it’s ok gear and I’m giving sound advice about einhall gear now it’s crap period take it or leave it buy it or don’t buy it . If you employ somebody to do work for you and they turn up with these sort of tools don’t let them start .

Keep the mrs locked up mate
For £34.99 and a 3 YEAR WARRANTY its well worth the money, unless of course you are a "Tradesman" lol
`m not a tradesman but have Built a garage, installed bathrooms kitchens (Not Gas Appliances) and done more DIY than I can remember. That was in my spare time, i used to be a Technical Representative for a Fixings company, so maybe I do know a bit more than your average man in the street.
Einhell stuff gets decent reviews on Amazon. I've got an Einhell angle grinder and it's decent. Einhell is probably at least on a par with the likes of Silverline, and probably a bit better. Absolutely fine for DIY, but of course brand snobs will always say otherwise. It's all about 'fit for purpose'.
Parkside stuff tends to be German made. All right so Einhell (other little known German & Austrian manufacturers do stuff for Lidl also) isn't one of the best German made. But it's OK. Its what British stuff would be if given a chance - unlike shifting manufacture to China and the far east which BOTH Tories and Labour encourage

Tripe. Its just like some pillock pouring scorn on a Ford van and insisting only a Mercedes van can do the job. As for Bosch most of their stuff is Chinese made now anyway

Baloney mate I have mostly festool equipment it’s made to last are you saying there’s no difference in quality between crap gear and top stuff ?. Don’t talk rubbish and I’m not a pillock but I love your irony. Einhell market their stuff “for recreational use” what the hell is that ?, fancy a drill party honey shall we put a few holes in today . Ye gods .

DIY people don't need a blue bosch, green is good enough for them, eg

homebase.co.uk/bos…727

end cost just £15 more... 3 years warranty, 5 day repair service ("This product comes with a 5-day repair service. We will collect, repair and service your product and return it to you within 5 working days.")
Should buy a more renown brand like Onkyo

Remind me of the price difference - and then the percentage price difference of a Ford van and a Merc van.
When you're looking around as you drill telling everyone "Its a fesstool you know" - and not seeing the peoples eyes rolling and tapping their mouths in a yawn ? And then you look at the hole drilled. Is it any shinier ? Nope. Done any faster ? Actually thats down to the person the drill. Only a dick drills faster to impress. Is it any better a hole for paying five times more ? Nope.
Just bragging rights, thats all
