I turned to Milwaukee tools some years ago but not impressed with the latest models. I have also used Hitachi's and although maybe not the best, they were always been solid performers. Imo, they are about the same league atm. Didn't know that will change brand name soon, hope its for the best, as Hitachi has good reputation in general.

This is a fine drill for the price. I use it as a secondary drill to my larger dewalt combi that came with 5ah batteries. It did regularly appear on offer at screwfix/b&q for £100 plus vat but they seem to have shuffled thier range around now and dewalt are giving them an exclusive model with better 3ah batteries but a far inferior drill unit. I'd head for this one. Its not going to last too long if you're drilling numerous holes in timber joists, but for sticking wall plugs in and small to medium duties it'll be perfect. It'll far out perform most jobs around your home. The milwaukee mentioned in the comments is a much better drill unit, however I personally think having a battery drill with only a single battery is a waste of time.

Thanks, my mistake, couldn't see clearly if you could turn hammer mode off


Yes, and the good thing with Milwaukee drills is they have a separate selector for driving modes, as opposed to the drill & hammer settings being at the end of the torque dial. So if you're driving screws and want to switch to drilling, you just turn the drive-mode selector to drill and it sticks it in full torque, irrespective of where the torque dial is set. Then when you switch back to driving it's in the same torque setting as it was previously. It's very quick and intuitive.

If you read what you actually posted, it even tells you that they deliver the exact same level of power. with the batteries wired in parallel they deliver the same power over a longer period... in theory 4.0ah could last twice as long as 2.0ah NOT deliver twice the power as they are all 18v battery’s...


To be fair, it doesn't say that at all. It says they CAN delivery extra power, depending on how they're wired and controlled.

Power is commonly measured in watts, and volts x amps = watts. The voltage in this instance is constant, at 18v. But the current is variable, and if the current varies so does the power; this is the case in normal usage, the drill will draw varying amounts of current depending on the load being put upon it. The amp-hour rating is a figure based on a constant- 1 amp over 1 hour, but that's in no-way indicative of the current draw of the tool.

I've over-simplified this example, but if a 2ah battery is designed to supply 1 amp, it will run for two hours and the power will be 18 watts (18v x 1a). If a 4ah battery is designed to supply 1 amp, it will run for 4 hours and the power will be 18 watts. But if the 4ah battery is designed to supply 2 amps, it will run for 2 hours and the power will be 36 watts.

There's a lot more to it than that obviously, but just to make the point that a higher amp-hour battery CAN equal more power, all depending on how the batteries are grouped and the control circuit have been designed. But it's not really a case of the battery being able to supply more current, but the tool being able to draw it. But I can't see why not.

Sorry if my opinion is wrong. I must be imagining the extra grunt. Now where did I put that little 1.4Ah I need to teach it some physics and tell it to exercise a bit to perform as well as big old 4Ah

and no I didn't get to the end of the link I posted because it bored me to sleep when the comments got repetitive. I got as far as the comment about the tool sensing a higher rated battery and drawing more power from it (overclocking the motor) and drawing less if a lower rated battery was used (underclocking the motor).
The comments made more sense than the article which was in fact incorrect.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that in some cases the manufacturers may claim you voided the warranty and refuse to honour any extended warranty.

if you register Bosch, Dewalt, Festool or Makita they’ll all give you varying levels of warranty but 3yrs is the standard (though dewalt will only cover 2yrs in the battery)

just be be aware that lithium batteries can be volatile if not look after properly and can explode although this is unlikely!

They really are a different league. See if they'll let you look at them in the shop- they did with me before I bought my first. Milwaukee service is also ace, batteries are guaranteed for two years also. I've never heard of anyone switching to Milwaukee then switching back to DeWalt, Makita, Hitachi, etc. Also if you get this set, you've already got a 12v charger and battery, so it opens it up for buying the 12v tools. I know I keep saying it but the 12v SDS is brilliant.

Voting something down just because it doesn't fit your budget or it's not your favourite brand is what is completely unnecessary, and makes it look like a bad deal to all those who might have been interested- and to be honest it gets a bit tedious after a while. I had someone once go and vote all my listings down just because they were for the same brand (he actually said as much), so I'd say not unneccessary, totaly warranted.Anyone who knows this product knows how good a deal it is- less than the value of it's component parts. You could sell everything bar the drill and reclaim your outlay, thus getting a free drill (which sells for £75-£100)- or sell the lot and turn a nice profit. Therefore the people down-voting it are people who have no interest or knowledge of the product, which surely isn't why the system was set up? It's supposed to be a gauge of how good the deal is, not a gauge of brand preference or personal budget- it makes a mockery of the whole system.And for the record, a £10 drill will definitely be sh*t, probably be dangerous, and is certainly morally reprehensible- the plug on the end is worth a tenth of the cost. How much rice do you think the employees earn for making it?

The Chinese are very good at manufacturing, but it all depends how much they're getting paid to do it, as with most things. I think some Makita stuff is still made in Japan, and some Metabo in Germany. But the bulk of all of them is made in China, and that's only a bad thing if the money- and QC, as you say- aren't there.

I first got switched on to Milwaukee a few years ago, long before I could actually afford them. They're very innovative, a lot of things that are now commonplace in cordless tools originated with Milwaukee, and they're always pushing the envelope- they don't seem complacent like some companies. And they don't seem to release a bunch of tools for the sake of it either. I can't make head-nor-tail of what's what when it comes to Makita or DeWalt drills, there's that many different ones. If you look on the Milwaukee website they have four 18v combi's, and one's the one-key system which is a different kettle of fish and another is the old brushed drill which I think is getting phased out.

Tried some Makita and they were a tiny bit better than the Milwaukee, but the irony is the drill I brought back was better than all the others there apart from another DeWalt which I ended up taking home. The best there was a Hitachi but that was very expensive.


Strange, I haven't noticed it with any of mine.

But with 91Nm of torque? that's the real thing about the Makita I mentioned, most sub £150 drills are around 45-60Nm of torque, If you don't drill into tough bricks, concrete or masonry very often then you probably don't need the higher torque but those that do would find it most helpful, other than going down the SDS route.

The chances of being stuck with no charge with the latest brushless combi (like I mentioned) and a 4ah are virtually nill certainly not as a home DIY'er as this Screwfix deal is aimed for, mine goes for days of fairly intensive use (not masonry) in a professional environment, and if for some reason you didn't top it up before work and it ran out, just five minutes in the fast charger will give enough time to finish most jobs. The 1.5ah are a waste of space and should't even be offered with tools anymore, they are effectively the same size and weight as the Dewalt 2.5ah which should be the minimum standard now.

That's a hell of a price, the batteries alone are worth almost half that. If I didn't already have the drill/driver and the 18v impact I'd be all over this. For the record I've got two Milwaukee 18v combi's and the 12v one is my go-to driver, 9 times out of 10 it gets the job done and it's a lot lighter!
Edited by: "ThanksForThat" 7th Feb
12v models are ideal if you're doing an lot of work above shoulder height. I've got the 18v kit with 4ah batteries. It's surprising how quickly that makes your arm ache!
thanks all for the guidance, got this delivered today, seems very slow, maybe because im used to my uncles m18s which are very powerful, so ordered the dewalt screwfix ones

if you use daily invest in these
hotukdeals.com/dea…739

the extra £100 would be worth it for the batteries alone... as there £60ea and there the upgraded combi and impact

all depends on budget, how much you use, and what your using for
Original Poster
the dewalts are more powerful but are larger

I have the DeWalt DCF886N impact which is 165nm which is excellent.. the one you post is 155nm so probly not far off it

as for the combi I cant comment but the DeWalt DCD996N I use is good but not excellent probly due to the electronic clutch


given the choice personally if I had no kit... id go for the 18v dewalt (little bias as I have 10+ 18v units)... just for the basis that you can buy other naked components for the dewalt 18v that are more competitively priced

I have also purchased the 12v Milwaukee kit.. but more because I wanted small compact drills
