Thought I’d get in before the so-called DIY experts come on here stating this is rubbish and you’d be wiser spending £200 on a Makita etc. If you work in a F1 pit lane and need to change Lewis Hamilton’s tyres in under 4secs this probably isn’t the drill for you. If however like me you pop the odd photo frame up or build a piece of flat pack furniture now and again this drill is fantastic value. I paid £29.99 just over 6 months ago and it’s served me brilliantly. It’s still great value at the current price.

No experience using this drill, but bear in mind it only has a 10mm chuck and no hammer function for brick/stone. Looks good value otherwise however

I've had one for 6 months, paid a fiver less than this and its serving me well with daily use at work in the motor trade

The trouble with these own brand tools is that they all use their own battery design. In the long run you will be better off choosing a range of tools that all use the same battery so that you can buy replacement batteries when needed and swap batteries between tools when you discover the battery has run out and you don't have time to wait to re-charge.

No hammer action does make the drill lighter, less tiring on your arm when you've been using it all day and you're not drilling masonry. When I am drilling brick or stone I wouldn't waste my time using a standard hammer drill, it has got to be SDS. 10mm chuck is not so good though.

I got this exact same one from Aldi for £24.99 4 months ago. It's been serving me well, at £35 it's still a good deal for sure!

I bought it on sale at £24.99 and as mentioned by hodgy1066, for the occasional DIYer it is a good drill. I also bought the hammer one and again for the few times that i used it, it has been more than adequate. Plus you get a 3 years warranty, can't beat that really

Went up dramatically in price, still only ONE battery at a time when they're enticing you with 2 batteries.

Lidl occasionally do a 20V tool range with interchangeable batteries. Calling them 20V is presumably just a gimmick though, as they'll have the same number of cells as 18V tools.

Eh? You want a drill that uses two batteries at once?

Remember the drill has a 3 year guarantee and comes with 2 batteries and a 1hr charger for £35. I bet you cant buy a replacement battery for the well known brands for £35.
These are no good for heavy trade use but for diy they are great. Remember Li-ion batteries do last much better than Nicads of old.

Ryobi is the obvious example but much more expensive. Worth checking out GUILD at Argos (no longer at Homebase) especially when on offer. Excellent products in my experience and the batteries are compatible with a number of other brands, including Worx.

Hammer on a cordless is ok for occasional use eg putting up a picture frame or shelf. Though agree, an sds would be much better. Given the target market for these drills, they're unlikely to own multiple drills I imagine and I was just stating the facts

Don't be silly.
I actually found that these drills DO come with two batteries.

Anyone who has it know what the torque (Nm) is? ta.

If you have lidl battery power tools already, keep an eye out for drills etc on Sunday 29th October

Lidl 20v one is better imo and only fiver more expensive

Lidl 20v one is better imo and only fiver more expensive


narkodrom, i was wondering that. In what ways might the lidl one better the aldi one would you say? the lidl one looks to have a battery that can give a rough idea of battery charge for a start

Great price’ heat added

Bought one the other week and just used it for first time today. OK so I know its not a hammer drill but it managed to drill 70 x 6mm x30mm holes in brick, screw in 70 screw, drill 50 4mm holes in mini trunking and a few other bits and bobs all on 1 battery!!!! Amazing.
Very impressed, only 1 slight issue which is the chuck seems to slacken off a little when it is undoing screws using a hex shank screwdriver bit. No big problem just a little niggle.
For £35 it is a great buy, very happy.
Cheers to OP for posting.

Any one want mine? I didn't look and realised it's got no hammer action. I've driven about 6 screws with it so it's brand new
