The drill on its own is 99 at Argos with 2 batteries so think this is an average deal. A diyer can probably manage without the impact driver.

Also states 1-3mths delivery.

I went for the bosch professional from Screwfix for 89 with a 3mah battery. Other thing to consider will be the torque for tougher jobs. Not sure how this compares to the premium brands.

For the average DIY'er this is a great deal. I've got the dewalt equivalent (3 yr warranty) which is brilliant but you can argue at this price. I've got a few WORX tools and their fine for average usage. Great deal

Up to 3 months delivery?? Having a laugh.

You cant be an impact driver even for DIY.

The max torque on the drill is 60Nm. The bosch professional at screwfix mentioned above is 67Nm so they are in the same ball park in terms of power. So if we value the worx combi drill at say £75 then the impact drill appears superb value for just an extra £60 odd.

All I will say about Bosch professional is the one time I had a problem was my multitool started to have a startup problem after 15 months, I had hammered it for a solid week so probably my own fault, online form filled in, collected the next day, at bosch the day after and the following day it was back with a new motor and controller.

A proper good 3 year warranty, you get what you pay for.

My small 10.8v drill driver and impact driver have never missed a beat in 5 years.

ah, I see now.

Agreed, any average (and above) DIYer should have an impact of some form in there collection.

​I am a joiner and rarely use my impact driver when a decent torqued combi drill is all you need

​i've just completed a huge kitchen renovation. Consider myself an above average diy'er and never once felt the need to use an impact driver. If it's a tight space I use a stubby. Every other job was managed fine with the drill.
Save your pennies and get an Sds drill instead. That is now my number 1 power tool.

I have both sds and impacts - you're comparing apples and pears there. If you are fitting kitchens made from some sort of fibre board an impact is maybe not necessary - although I would use mine - but when using solid wood, such as joists or fence posts, you can't go wrong. I have a 10.8/12v hitachi and an 18v bosch. Excellent tools for mechanics as well - each to their own I guess.

If you can afford one and know what it's suitable for - and it will drive screws straight through many board materials - have one to hand.

Use my impact driver all the time, You don't have to put as much downward presure when putting in a screw so much better for tight spaces.
Would never be without an impact driver.

What a load of crock. You dont use an sds drill assembling a kitchen.... You use a combi!

Worx brand seems more like JCB not likes of Bosch or Makita. Prefer Bosch professional range . Bosch GSB18-2-LI £139 with 2x 2.0 amp batteries & 3 yr warranty screwfix.com/p/b…wcB

sorry £129.99 not £139.99

I think he means he'd rather save the money spent on the impact driver and buy an SDS drill instead.... I doubt he meant that he did the kitchen works using an SDS drill

A combi would, as you've experienced, tackle the job of a kitchen renovation.

That said, had you used a combination of drill/driver/combi and an impact you surely would have saved time?

Re SDS, surely if you only had 2 tools a combi & impact would be more versatile than your suggestion of a combi & SDS ?

​you're completely right but it worked a treat for the destruction elements. I took down a wall dug up tiles and concrete. Mixed plaster, paint and leveling compounds and drilled a couple of bore holes for waste pipes. I am however completely off subject I was merely pointing out that as a keen diyer I've never really understood the need for an impact driver. However someone else has just pointed out the benefits under the bonnet and I can really see that. (_;)

People say some funny things......as an ex-professional kitchen fitter, the SDS drill got used on every kitchen installation without fail. Sure, you can struggle like hell with a combi, or you can use the right tool for the job. Once you've used an SDS for drilling masonry you won't go back to using a combi.

Back to on the subject, I'm now in kitchen manufacture and the lads in the factory have recently switched to impact drivers and say its the best thing they've done. They've still got drill/drivers- new one's in fact- but these only get used for drilling now, not driving.

I was going to get to homebase and get me a Worx brushless combi (after some research), but last minute I decided to do this one diy job using elbow grease and get the set instead for only £40 more. Turns out I am super happy about my choice as I just received this email.
