Is this good enough to drill into brick walls/plaster for rawl plugs (e.g. upto 5cm).

Fantastic deal, heat added

​Probably ok for plaster, definitely ok for plasterboard, but no good for brick/stone. You want a combi or hammer drill.

not strictly true, i have a 10.8v one from aldi and it goes into brick , depends on the type of brick and how good your bits are i would think

Bargain i paid £35 from Argos with one battery about 2 month ago.

JUST ORDERED CHEERS

Just ordered mine, picking up tomorrow.

If you can find it in-store Homebase have essentially the same drill (own brand made by Worx) for £31.

homebase.co.uk/en/…550

OK deal but see if you can get something in homebase on offer, just check if your OK with limiting yourself to a 10mm chuck

Absolute bargain as this has 2 batteries. I have the prev 18v version and has been faultless over 2 years of regular use. Ordered this one as my nicad drill no longer holds charge.

I got one of these a couple of years ago as a stopgap when my bosch (blue) drill finally retired with a damp whimper. Wasnt expecting much, but was near the end of a job and it was cheap. The thing was a revelation and whilst light does give a sense of confidence in use. The batteries last for ages and havent aged since getting it. Bargain at this money.

Cheers OP. I have a Worx 18v drill that has been faultless over last couple of years, so couldn't resist this one.

i have no idea how drilling works... is it hard to do?

Remember to register for 3 year guarantee.
I had 18V one, would not charge after a year, lost the receipt so its lying in the garage.
But its good built drill.

Tempted but keep telling myself I don't NEED a bloody drill !

I know nothing about drills, so apologies if the following is a dumb question. Is this drill from Aldi of similar function/spec as the Worx one?:
aldi.co.uk/18v…500

not sure but there is only 1 battery with the aldi one

Its for anything, just spend over £50, the code is listed on the opening post

Ordered, thanks. Was tempted by the Aldi one posted on here recently, but the two batteries swayed it.

Any one know if it has a hammer action?

it's says in the spec it can drill into brick and stone

What is the torque?

Max torque (hard) 30 Nm (https://www.praxis.nl/gereedschap-installatiemateriaal/elektrisch-gereedschap/boormachines/accuboormachines/worx-wx170-accuschroefboormachine/5460695)
- my bosch gsb 18v is 67Nm - I expected a bit more torque from a 20v drill.

No. You need a hammer drill for breeze blocks or brick. You need an SDS drill for drilling concrete such as concrete lintels over Windows etc.

Doesn't say it has hammer action so I'd give it a miss

had one 2 years ago, a charger gone after 5 weeks...no thanks

I'm no expert but I drilled through a 12" wall (for an aerial cable lead) using a £13 Tesco Value 9.6V Cordless drill, so I'm sure this could sink a few rawl plugs...

You dont need a hammer drill for breeze block, this would be perfect.

Pop up window appears for another £5 off. Seems decent vfm at £35.

This is a good buy. It will drill into brick but slowly, depending on hardness of brick. To drill into brick you really need an SDS drill, hammer drills are really no better than this. I have both an SDS & one of these & between the two they do everything I need. If you can only afford this, buy it, then later get an SDS drill, as & when you can afford it.

Cannot get this to work... I tried collection from stores that show stock and for home delivery it says:

good value for those that got it!

For anyone near or passing a Homebase it's worth checking in there as these are on offer for £30 in my local Homebase (Sheffield Drakehouse). Have drill/driver sets reduced and also same brand mini-circular saws for the same price.

They are on the silver racks to the right of the main entrance just as you walk in the door (had about 8 of each when I was in yesterday and also some Stanley power tools reduced as well).

Loads of stuff reduced in-store (I picked up new light fittings, picture frames, garden furniture, BBQs, vases, candles etc).

Good find thanks for posting

The chargers are the weak point on these....

SDS is over kill for 99% of jobs around the home. for the last 30 years i have worked in private houses and business premises and if I had a pound for every hole i have drilled then I would be retiring on the moon. In all that time I have used cordless and mains hammer drills, I can count on one hand the times I have had to resort to using a SDS drill.

An SDS drill is over kill in most situations, its horses for courses and SDS is best kept to concrete and engineering bricks.
