Ok, so this is the standard price of one of the weekly specials at Aldi..but an absolute steal of a price for an SDS drill compared to your usual "budget" brands. Manufactured by Meister Werkzeuge of Germany and branded as Workzone.

On sale as of today (Sunday 30th September 2012) Still quite a few left in my local when picking up this evening before closing time.

Have not used it yet, but have to say very impressed by the quality for the price. For the average DIYer rather than tradesman its very good value. Carry case is of a high standard being very sturdy and a pouch for the instruction leaflet being a nice finishing touch.

At this price with the chisel and SDS drill bits included (would cost you more than £40 alone for those from Screwfix) it is an absolute steal.

Looks an excellent buy for the more serious DIY'er. 1500W - that's helluva lot for a drill of this price - just what's needed to put in big holes for things like tumble drier and air-con vents or drive those metre long drill bits... Wish that I could justify getting one, but I guess my 700W one will stagger on for a few more years.
Sorry, meant to add - it sounds from the description that a regular chuck, chuck key and SDS arbour are included in the price, as well as the bits and chisels and dust collection cap - knock the price of all those off the drill and the price for this 3 year warranty 1500W SDS drill is unbelievable. A must-buy if you need a powerful drill for those difficult jobs.

That is correct, a regular chuck for your bog standard hammer drilling is also supplied, so besides the weight disadvantage will also cope with the small jobs of putting up shelving etc.

I needed a new drill as my very old (10 year) and cheap Power Devil hammer drill from Argos gear drive has now got some play in it, so holes are more oval than round....cannot complain though, even that thing has coped with outside masonry and even straight through the wall for satellite coax cable installations....that for £20 doesn't owe me anything.

I need to mount a ground anchor for chaining my motorbike, the cost alone for buying a 16mm SDS drill bit for the anchor bolts would have been about £12...for me it was a no brainer.

I will be equally as pleased if this one lasts me 10 years.

thanks for posting, i'll be getting one of these tomorrow.

ooh I only bought a drill just over a week ago. This is the same price and loads better. I need this one. Can you have too many drills?

I bought one of these today and used it to chase out some channels in a concrete floor. Really impressed so far.....

If you have never used an sds drill buy this one to see how great they are. I have a quality standard hammer drill that wouldn't touch the lintels in my house, melted numerous drill bits. A cheap sds I bought few months later went through it like a hot knife through butter. I have chased out many walls and used it continuously for over 12 years and its still going strong.

Bonza! Perfect timing. My 1000w parkside... which I got for £30 has served me well over 3 years. Stripped a whole house of "plaster" (well...more like lots of leftover cement), loads of 60" deep holes, chasing out etc... cant complain. Going to get this for when my old faithful completely dies!

Did you need to do that? Or you just couldn't resist?

Looks good for the money, pity there's no ALDI in Northern Ireland.

I bought the works zone cordless drill they had on for £20 a few weeks back, nowhere near this power, but a cracking little toy just the same. so impressed was I tat the one spotted a week later reduced to £12.99 had to be picked up. now used in rotation between drill bit & screwdriver - swap the batteries not the bits! - and always have a batt on charge.

bargain.

even though there only £10 they are great quality

This looks good.

Been after a cheap one of these, hope they have them in my local tomorrow

I know this sounds like a daft question but it is cordless isn't it??? No mention in the description of rechargeable....

Unlikely to be cordless (it doesn't show a cord on the pic, but the lack of mentioning anything to do with cordless speaks volumes...).

That's a good thing though, these are not for normal everyday use, they are for when you need to bring the big guns out to get something done. There's no point having a powerful drill if you are going to cripple it by disconnecting it from the mains...

Looks like the Aldi one is based on this one - if it is, then no it isn't cordless

I can confirm this is a corded drill only.

It looks like an updated version of the one that flick3k has linked to. This one has a damping handle instead of a totally moulded one and a higher wattage.

Corded or not I'm still getting one! (hopefully)

These drills are excellent for trade use too, with a 3 year warantee. I always use ones like this (supatool or titan previously), as they have far more power than the branded ones. Plus you have fewer expensive tools in your van for when it gets robbed.

Had loads in my local

Thanks op

Bought one today, had 2 left. It's really heavy but I don't mind that. We had recently moved into older house with thick brick walls inside and normal drills couldn't do a thing. This went through great. Looking for excuses to make more holes now haha

Oh, picked up the pack of extra sds bits for a tenner too, thanks for the recommendation from guy on previous page. The bits that come with this drill were enormous so the extra pack has already come in useful for smaller holes.

Might be cheaper if you can get to another town to pick one up rather than pay someone for postage this thing is heavy, can't see postage being very cheap. At least five available in Sheldon B'ham.

Four left in the Wellingborough store this morning

3 left in Leeds now.
I bought one today
It is heavy!
I didnt buy the additional bits, but maybe i should have!

It's very heavy lol.

I had a go of mine today - makes easy work of hacking off old drywall adhesive

Has any one seen stock in Dorset thanks.

Just bought one in Hucknall, Notts and there were still about 5 left...if it helps somebody who's interested

I would have gone on the hunt for one of these if I had not invested in my Makita 4 weeks ago! (Managed to wangle it for £80, so was a steal)

I did buy a 5kg Titan one for £60 from Screwfix but with the need to drill about 150 holes on this project, 30% of which were above head height I needed something a bit lighter. Presumably this is another of the 5kg variety?

What is in the £10 drill kit?

I have the £15 drill kit from screwfix, is it the same / similar?

This is the 5kg (ish) version - it's fappin heavy !

Great for the chiselling function though which is primarily what I bought it for - I've condensed a week of chipping away at drywall adhesive into a couple of hours with this !

Cheers. Just got the drill and extra bit set in Sheffield. They also had a core drill set for £29.99 with the following included:

107 x 150mm, 52 x 150mm, 28 x 300mm diamond core drills
10 x 200mm centre drill
1 SDS arbour 10 x 115mm
1 HEX arbour 12 x 88mm
Ejector drift
Supplied in tough easy carry case

All in all not a cheap trip to Aldi, but bargains none the less.

Yes your right about the torque i just bought one but it only works on torque setting 6 (max)anything less won't work any help please

Take it back to Aldi and have it repaired or replaced under the warranty. Also this thread was over 2 years old .......
