Cracking find op, great with the two batteries ( a must ), heat added

Not the best reviews I have to say

Not sure if the reduction is realistic as a lot of reviews going back to 2015 say they only Paid £50 then
Dodgy stock offload if you ask me

Decent drill and when it fails Wickes will replace it, at least my local one has done.

So they fail is what you are saying?

Much better to get yourself fitted out with Ryobi one+ tools. I do property maintenance and heavy DIY and you can't beat them for reliability and quality and they all use the same battery so 1 charger and if you run one flat you can take one from another tool and swap them. I started out in 2006 with nimh batteries but upgraded ton lithium about 7 years ago. I even have a pole chainsaw that I can swap out the batteries with. My mate who does site work sneers at them but I think that is just down to Dewalt snobbery and the fact he would be laughed at on site by his peers if he pulled a Ryobi out of his pocket.

this looks like one I have purchased from Argos. I have seen this same basic design marketed under retailers own names in lots of places.
if it's the same as mine, then I have to say you will be disappointed.
even though I paid 2.5 times that for my makita, it's easily more than 2.5 times better. I am sure you can buy much better for under a hundred pounds.
because the battery protection circuit tries to limit current to prevent under voltage and current drain issues, you get a weak performance, and also the batteries do not last much either.
I even directly connected the batteries to my li-ion balance charger as I thought maybe my batteries are crap or it's not charging well, however they are indeed healthy batteries and charging well.
just the protection circuits being very conservative.
also the charger that came with mine was a 5 hour charger that took 8 hours!
I would avoid if the same one.

lidl do deals occasionally, decent power tools with decent warranty for a honest price!. (lidl .. can I have my fiver now!)

You get what you pay for.

Looks a good bit older clumsier and heavier than similar priced newer ones

junk. get Bosch, makita or dewalt for not much more.

Are they not the ones that come with auto impact which you can't turn off. Certainly appears that way on the Makita and Dewalt we have in the factory.

I have a set of Ryobi's. Had both drills since 2011. Both good and they were used for work for about a year driving in No. 12 x 3.5" screws all day. Never missed a beat and still have a battery from 2011 and one from 2009 !!

I also bought the Wickes 10.8v as I wanted a small drill that wasn't heavy that would fit in my pocket for doing any ladder work. Great little buy with 30 minute charge. Not sure I would buy the one posted though as my 18v Ryobis take a bit of stick and judging by the failure of some of our work's Makita's I would definitely buy Ryobi again. On the cheaper stuff, no matter what the name on the product you don't know for sure you are buying a genuine product. I use to buy nothing but Stanley tools years ago but the Stanley tools of today are not what they were 20 and 30 years ago.

Worth a punt at that price, and 2 years to get a refund.

35nm torque is a tad weak for an 18V drill (plastic in gearbox?), but OK for light to medium DIY.

Aldi had a 50Nm drill for same price, 1.5Ah, 3yr warranty, OOS online but still some in my local (Kingston on Thames)
