I found this great deal last week but held off posting as there was no stock near me and I didn't was to initiate a goose chase for anyone, but I've just used a national stock checker and found that there are 21 stores around the country showing availability so you may be lucky (do check first)!

WORX tools are excellent amateur quality and this looks like a handy little kit for the home DIY enthusiast. It has also been posted at a great price as a bare drill but if you don't already have a battery and charger then this would be the better option. The batteries on these tools are compatible with all the WORX '20vMAX' tools as well as 18v items from Guild, Erbauer and others.

These batteries are on clearance too and are compatible - always handy to have another battery charged and ready:

I've listed the 21 stores showing availability.
Reserved one thanks op.
I’ve got one of these - great driver, terrible drill (IMHO).
I picked this up from B&Q 16 months ago for £35 with 2 batteries. So whilst this has been a better price in the past, i can confirm that it is a great little drill/driver for the money. I have also used Bosch and DeWalt. I would say there is little real difference between this and the Bosch (green) but the DeWalt was in a world of it's own (and a price of its own too). The carry bag makes a decent 2nd tool case too.

What makes it bad as a drill? I bought one earlier but only used it as a screwdriver, I noticed Argos have this one as well:

argos.co.uk/pro…001


I'm wondering if that's worth picking up as well since I have the battery pack already. I don't do much in the way of serious drilling so I don't know what's worth it.

fantastic driver this, got one in a 2 pack with a hammer drill, best drills i've ever had.
Ive had this a couple of years and its a great drill, I have the hammer drill and the batteries still hold charge well

If you have the battery and charger already then the bare drill would be fine - but you might want to get a spare battery too? This one is compatible and is a very low price on clearance:

I'm more wondering what the improvements are with the hammer drill over this one, the person I quoted has said it's useless as a drill. If the only advantage is for drilling masonry and similar then I'll stick with this one but if there's other weaknesses as a drill then I'd consider the other one.

Hammer drill has more torque (50nm vs 30nm) and a larger chuck (13mm vs 10mm). Clearly a higher specification (at a higher price) so depends largely on what you're going to use it for. Personally I'd probably go for the hammer drill but if you don't think you'll ever use the extra specification (eg regularly drilling into masonry) then a bag and an extra battery are probably better value.

Apologies for disappearing after my feedback on this. I guess part of this is that I look at the use case of a drill for the average person which is occasional drilling into various materials. This simply doesnt have the power for drilling into tough materials - and until you need it, you wont know what material you are drilling into often.

If you know for certain that you will only ever need to go into plasterboard or wood, then I guess this would be fine as a drill. My experience is that you can guarantee the job you want needs to go into something tougher.

In fairness, my view is partly tarnished by the fact that I just think these entry level lithium drills are a bit of a fad. For the occasional user, the best combination is one of these (or something like this) for driving (for which it is excellent), and a proper corded higher torque hammer drill for drilling. You could argue that the cordless gives more flexibility in terms of location - my answer to that is if you are far enough away from a plug to NEED a cordless drill, you are probably drilling into something that this drill wont get through.

As I say, just my thoughts, and apologies for not quantifying them earlier...

I almost never drill into something heavy like masonry, I had a corded drill but it's much more convenient using this cordless one particularly in the garden. Even in the house it's handy not to have to dig out am extension lead each time.
Seems to be additional availability at the same price via Argos ebay; worth a look anyway if you're searching:

Quick release the wild geese ....


That would have made so much more sense with one little comma in the right place!
Just one left now (Kelso) so expiring this thread but may still be available at Argos on ebay if you're searching.
