DeWaltDewalt are third and only get so much marketing and prestige here because they are a big, rich American company but their drills are slightly worse for the price than Hitachi's. They're a bit like Ford of the car industry - one of the most popular brands here despite several other manufacturers in the same price range being superior.


This is a 30 quid drill, those other makes might be pro quality but also at least 4x the price, give your head a wobble.
I got bought a Workzone drill a few years ago now and I have to say it's consistently been really good. I already had a (low end) Bosch drill and was bought the Workzone one for a gift, and couldn't be bothered with the hassle of getting it changed so kept both.

Back to back it seems to do a better job than the Bosch and has the added bonus of lasting longer on a single charge AND the battery, if left partially charged, just never seems to go flat. I can put it away for a year, dig it out of the cupboard, and it still has enough juice to do whatever job I need. Meanwhile the Bosch ALWAYS seems to be flat, even if I charge it before putting it away.

So yeah - it's a cheap drill and is of course going to be outperformed by more expensive brands, but for the average home DIY'er, it's absolutely fine.

Good price for a lithium drill. 2amp is a bonus. These tool deals from Lidl and aldi are exceptional value for money and the 3 years warranty is second to none.

theres one cheaper 12v different brand from argos and good reviews if you can wait

Excellent price, be good if there were spare batteries somewhere though.
Great price. Anyone know if other model battery will fit in?

I bought this late last year when it was on offer with 2 batteries.
I had just moved in to a new house and it has performed admirably. Wood isn't a problem, tile is ok depending upon the type of drill bit. The only thing that did prove a challenge was a lintel where I needed a hammer drill.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to you. Definitely worth it.

I did contemplate the Argos version too, but the additional battery swung it for me at the time.
Heat added, these are a great bit of kit.
20v has a good amount of power behind it doesnt it? Aren't most of the top brand entry level drills only 18v?

These drills are no good for drilling into brickwork, blockwork or concrete as they do not have a hammer function.

Yes they do....

Purchased this last year when I bought my house. Have gutted the entire place and used this drill throughout and it never let me down the only thing it would not go through was actual red brick. Battery lasts ages and has a fair bit of power behind it. Well worth the price.

Other than the colours, this looks pretty similar to my Worx 20v drill. Does anyone know if the batteries are compatible with the Worx drills?
So aldi have finally stopped selling non Li-ion battery drills

The only difference between 18V and 20V tools is the marketing department- one is quoting the approximate max voltage hot off the charger, the other the average battery voltage.

As an example, the Worx tools and the Erbauer tools use the same batteries, but Worx call them 20V and Erbauer 18V.

Bosch have just rebranded their 10.8V line as 12V - I wouldn't be surprised to see 18V tools start to disappear at some point as well...
Hit cold by mistake!!!! These are great and I now have a collection of them as I keep buying the next iteration 😁

They do and aren't bad either! I wouldn't use one as daily driver if I was a carpenter but for home use they are spot on.
This looks like a POS.

This is the order of quality for power tools:

1. Makita
2. Hitachi
3. DeWalt

Dewalt are third and only get so much marketing and prestige here because they are a big, rich American company but their drills are slightly worse for the price than Hitachi's. They're a bit like Ford of the car industry - one of the most popular brands here despite several other manufacturers in the same price range being superior.
50Nm is probably the least amount of torque you will need for wood (hard wood?) screw fixing. Since this is cheap, you probably need to buy two, one for pre-drilling, unless you want to change bits all the time.

It appears that you have left Festool and Bosch off your list, which are much better than those you have listed, even Milwaukee tools should be there as well, but just under Makita, and also Hitachi should never be above Dewalt, as their tools are just pants.

Festool stuff is cracking and the after sales support is fast. any issues they sort it out for you.

However we're talking £500 for a drill.

I was told by a chippy that Hitachi are crap and not regarded well by tradesman

These posts are always the same. Good value kit. I’ve got this and the hammer drill version, done loads of DIY with both and not had any problem, great value for money.

then the brand snobs turn up and start telling people that they are rubbish and won’t last. Ridiculous, do one. Even if it doesn’t lastbitnis cheap, but for most people’s DIY needs this will more than suffice.

Your right, it states it's a drill driver, not a hammer drill driver, this drill is not made for masonry drilling.

I bought the 10.2v workzone drill about 6 months ago (same price as this). It has been used and abused since, I have had no problems at all with the drill, I would think this 20v drill will be equally as good but of course with more power. On the down side it will be heavier and less able to get into tight spaces.
For £30 and a 3 year warranty you cannot go wrong, if you want a battery drill get this.

Previous cordless drill machine I bought had 2 batteries, I couldn't work with one battery.
It's just not worth it in practice for cordless drill with one battery.....

The best power tool Ive ever bought was a lidl impact driver for £20 (bare body) its been a great investment for me and I would gladly buy lidl cordless tools again, I would happily take a chance on this too if the battery was cross compatible
Thanks OP. Also ordered wood drill bits for £3.49 :-)

They would drill into brick. Maybe not concrete, depending what kind it is.

Did you use masonry bits for the brick or ones supplied with it.
Which would be better, the one posted here or this one ?

I have ordered the Bosch drill, but it's not been shipped yet.
So there's no problem in cancelling the order.

I don't live near to an Aldi so the cost of the drills is roughly equal to me if I have to go to a shop to get one.

The Lidl's "3 year warranty" is actually pants because you can't take the item back to the store, you have to ship it to the manufacturer (e.g.Parkside etc) in Germany. Not sure about Aldi policy though.

But I've had my parkside drill for about 3 years and used regularly and it still works good so would still buy hardware from Lidl but wouldn't put much value on the warranty.

I’d probably a pilot drill hardwood anyway as you’re asking quite a bit of the screw to go in without shearing. 50Nm is a fair amount and perfectly adequate for most tasks, think my basic makita 453 is only ~40Nm and that’s normally more than enough even for masonary screws. If it needs more torque I’d go for an impact driver anyway as the chances of camming out and chewing the screw head are higher when using a drill driver

No - it's the same as the previous one, with the same battery, with a different sticker on it.
