Never quite sure why they always sell a combi drill and an impact driver …Never quite sure why they always sell a combi drill and an impact driver in these sets. One or the other would be adequate for most diy ‘tasks and the trade people will probably not be interested in budget stuff anyway. Would make more sense to have a combi drill and (say) a saw of some description.


Except a combi drill won't always drive a 5" screw into hardwood where an impact driver will.

And an impact driver wont always drill into hard brick / concrete where a combi drill will.

Similar tools as you say but they aren't the same.

Glad to have helped!
Just confusing. Aldi need to stop this stuff. Sold my Makita sets and with the money bought a whole range of ferrex.

The problem: They have these system PLUS the ACTIV ENERGY ones. I'm unclear if they are 2 seperate lines or the Active Energy is the newer line.

On hindsight I'd have got into the Parker system as it's less confusing and more products... Bit a bit more expensive.

My guild combi drill broke just before 2 year warranty. Got a refund on it and looking out for a replacement. Was ready to press the button on the ryobi deal, my local Aldi doesn't have the multi drill in stock. I don't think I'll need the impact. Its ashame the single multi drill doesn't have quick charge function

I thought the same.. but once you try and impact driver... Wow... The feeling is good.

Had neighbour trying to get his screws out of the floorboard. Used hand screwdriver, electril drill/driver etc.etc. with no success
... came to my door.

The head of the screw was all gone. I stuck a size 3 head on the impact and in less than 2 seconds removed it. He had spent over an hour and originally came to ask if I could cut off the head off the screw!

This is exactly what I can’t work out. Almost everything has been 18v recently, which completely undermines the principle of the ACTIV ENERGY system. I was gonna invest but have not bothered because what is the point in investing in one particular ecosystem that promises compatibility when it has been fragmented like this?

So on the looks I think activ energy 20v (which is basically 18v- marketing spin) may be the longer term buy.

I bought it as it had drill driver and impact driver (hard to get hold of.. only appears once every year for a month or two and usually online).. and then for £18 got a multi tool (I use abit) and £25 or so got a hedge trimmer and then £25 or so got the angle grinder. The 5amp last ages.. cut my whole front hedges about 20M or more long and still had over have its power!

Only thing missing is a mini plunge saw.

Once you have one bit of kit with battery and charger the rest are very cheap.

Build wise they are ok. Not for daily pro use. Does not feel (or make me feel) as good as my old machita set or the newer Bosch Pro set my brother buys... But then for much less than the price of his multi tool and drill I got all the above.

Tools from lidl are better

Yep, must admit I would enjoy an impact driver, but to be honest as a casual diy’er probably wouldn’t get the value from it. I have a half decent makita combi drill, which seems to cope with most jobs and can drive screws quite well albeit have to faff about with pilot holes etc sometimes.
Part of me thinks that this is obviously a great price for an 18v drill and driver set. But the other part of me thinks that in the long run it would be better to spend an extra £70 or £80 and get in on the Makita LXT or DeWalt XR system with a twin pack from either of them, and then add in other bare tools as you need them. I know that this Ferrex set is great value for money but the range of tools is naturally much more limited than Makita, DeWalt, Bosch, even Einhell. I think as well the comments above about the differing Ferrex battery systems backs up this point about it being better to get in on a more unified platform.

Sorry think I'd rather have something like this Makita twin pack screwfix.com/p/m….ds

Or a 2nd hand G series or LXT

I think I paid £120 for the Makita mod range series and £55 for the impact driver.

Really good and quality stuff. Much better than the Ferrex, but unlike my brother spending ££££'s on the best.. I thought I need for just diy and prefer to have all the bits and bobs for about £180 odd or so.

For you, buy the Makita impact driver. Amazing bit of kit. About £55 and well worth it...!

Once you drive in big fat screws like butter in oak.. you realise how powerful it is.

You definitely don't want to get the G Series stuff, much better to just get on the LXT platform.
I actually have G series and think it's better than lxt

What makes you say that? The LXT range is the standard "professional" gear and the G Series is intended for the home DIY market. That's why the G Series only comes with small capacity 1.5Ah batteries for example and is priced lower than LXT products as it is meant to be the budget cordless platform.

I mean for the price, I bought G series as a mate who uses them all day and has had both said they weren't that different to LXT, but a lot cheaper

Not sure if I agree with your mate. I had the G-series before getting LXT (and then selling to get Aldi ferrex!) . If your mates using it all day then he must have lots of batteries as they used to only do 1.5amp ones. Working on big projects they'd have to keep changing batteries...!

Aldi quality not great but I love their 5amp batteries.. last for ages!
