Not sure it's worth buying a basic set with a basic drill. You'd be much better off getting a more comprehensive tool kit and a 240v drill for about the same price. If it was only for occasional use then the ni-mh battery would suffer leaving you with a useless drill.

Get dealGet deal

Spannerzone summed it up perfectly. This would definitely be overkill for DIY and I'm not sure if this is a good deal but it's a terrific tool and easily 100% better than the Dewalt. The Dewalt however would be more than capable for most DIY tasks and light trade.




Check powertoolmate bet he beats that price


Well high torque means it's easier to drill drills into very tough brickwork, concrete or masonry and would mean it can more easily drive screws/bolts like a very powerful screwdriver. But many people never need such power, I suspect most people don't need that for DIY and those that do might have a cheap impact driver any way. I personally would always get a higher torque drill as my house has very solid and hard bricks but i got the Makita 458 drill that's quite powerful and about £150 - £180 with battery and charger.


It's a great drill (I have one) but I don't think it's a great price. Without checking I'm fairly sure you can get it cheaper buying everything separately.

@crazyg A conventional (cam-action) drill moves the whole chuck back and forth to create the hammer action. That's what the drill in this post is. A rotary hammer uses an electro-pneumatic system to drive the drill bit back and forth within the chuck itself, and they always have an SDS chuck as opposed to a three-jawed chuck. Rotary hammer drills are far superior for hammer drilling, and can usually also be used in hammer-only mode (i.e. without the chuck rotating) for chiselling and demolition work. There's a bit more to the mechanics than that, but that's the differences in a nutshell (y)

Ordered yesterday, delivered 22hrs later. Decent little box and magnetic attachment.

Well I certainly learn a lot from a lot of experienced people here. I love it. Ultimately you have to make up your own mind, but you'll have a much much better starting point than you otherwise would.


Discussions on tools are great! "This is the best," "no this is the best and here's why," "yeah well I've been using these for years and they have no equal" and so on and so on. 😁

I wish German tools like Wera Wiha Gedore Hazet Knipex NWS Stahlwille etc would "flood the market" with cheap tools. Unfortunately they're expensive because they ARE good (like British tools USED to be before Thatcher & co helped them close down and get made in China - resulting in them closing down permanently whereas the germans realised that supporting their goods theres still demands for QUALITY not cheap rubbish. Note, we rarely see Japanese hand tools which are high quality too in the west - they don't need to. They sell well at home as did British made tools until late 70s when Thatcher came on scene)

Buy the bare blue version on this link and then pick up some batteries and charger off ebay/gumtree. That is a total bargain. Either way, this kind of compact drill is a fantastic addition to any tool kit.


I’ve been monitoring the 12 GSB / GDR for a while. Bare GSB is currently £29 here - http://www.powertool-supplies.co.uk/bosch-gsb-10.8-2-li-combi-drill-body-only.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIjNGvzYLa2wIVDbDtCh0PwQmvEAQYASABEgILFvD_BwE#/product/50749 Even at at that price, adding on two batteries and the impact driver takes you to £108 and that’s without the l-boxx or charger. Unfortunately it seems the ebay 20% off would have been the best opportunity to get the kit for around £110 - it’s much cheaper than pricing up separately. Borrowed one and couldn’t believe the power/size of the thing. I’m not sure why the blue GSB is rated for bigger masonry bits as they are extremely similar on the stats but if I had the money I’d be all over it. To be honest, I’m fairly sure i’ll be able to shift this green one on for £30 used, so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for an offer on the blue kit.


Seems a very good price for a very handy combi drill/driver +2.5ah, I use the pro blue version all the time at work along with the excellent 12v impact driver. I don't know what difference there is in internally regarding industrially rated components etc, suspect not much but remember that the green and the blue batteries are NOT interchangeable and there is quite a large system for the pro tools if you want to expand your kit.

Bosch Easy Impact 55 Impact Drill & Truvo Digital Detector £49.98 @ Rapid Online
Found 15th JunFound 15th Jun
This money-saving deal includes a Bosch EasyImpact 550 impact drill and a Bosch Truvo digital metal and live wire detector.
Get dealGet deal

Find out the weight before you buy. Could be very heavy!


I've found this truvo detector to be good (purchased it seperately a few months ago when I moved into a new place), obviously it's not infallible and should use with caution but it has saved my bacon finding wires run in walls, you get a solid tone when it detects metal and a beeping tone for a live wire


Read the instructions carefully. It is clearly not a professional device, but can prevent you from doing damage. I moved to a new rented unfurnished place and wanted to put a Ikea cabinet for bathroom storage. I only needed two drilled holes in the bathroom to fix it. Thanks to the stud detector I found I could not drill exactly at the height the cabinet had to be fixed. This probably saved me from drilling the (metal) plumbing and causing major damage in the flat. I know it would have not worked on non-metal plumbing, but still, I am glad I used it.


Buy Bosch Blue, Bosch Green for light stuff only.


I don’t find the Bosch metal / stud detector to be very good. Also my Bosch SDS drill died so not enamoured with Bosch domestic products. That said, my small battery drills and screwdrivers have been great and this looks a good deal if they work and continue working.

One thing I can say about the Lidl drills etc, their power tools batteries are interchangeable. Always searching for them perfect drill bits though!!


Far better off with the Bosch deal that was posted recently. These drills aren't great at all. Nor are they value for money. Plus, these batteries don't have a large variety of compatibility.


My Makita drill is ten years old and is used occasionally does the job very happy the drill bits though may as well be made of chocolate useless


If you just want a power drill for DIY use, and not planning on adding to your cordless collection, then yes, they are ok. As has been mentioned though, the LXT range starts at only a little more, and adding other LXT tools is cheap enough once you have a battery and charger.


So what is the general opinion? Good drill for a decent price or overpriced old stock that is pretty much a pile of outdated tosh??!

Depends really on what you paid and battery power, how many batteries ? The model you have mentioned is brushless’ that’s an advantage over the Bosch, but is a drill / driver ( no hammer drill function ) so it’s not a combi drill where as the Bosch is. torques are similar decent from both brands so other then yours not being a combi drill I’d say you’ve bought a decent drill.


I purchased a few days ago a DEWALT DCD777N is this combi drill any better?


No this has brushes.


Hi, is this brushless?


You say that now, but if you ever get the chance to try one they're awesome! And will remove a stubborn bolt with ease, I assembled a garden chair with mine instead of using a ratchet. Saved me loads of time.

Thanks guys for the views,I appreciate it! will check the titan one as mentioned as with getting somewhat sparks of decent weather it's giving me a day to get my hands nice and dirty and all done! Drill bits aren't the issue, just the bricks are some damn good old solid ones! Built better than I am it seems. The drill(s) I have at the moment are plenty old and do the job of putting shelves and what not up but never had to pierce brickwork.


Sounds like you need to invest in some quality masonry drill bits,get along to Screwfix, speak to the staff and they will sort you out 😁


An SDS drill will do what you want. Getting a decent one that's not too heavy for £40 May be a problem. Theres a Titan one at Screwfix for £50 that is rather heavy but extremely powerful.


I'd agree that for drilling into brick or concrete blocks then SDS is worth the extra money, and *definitely* if you are drilling larger holes (more than rawlplug sizes).


There’s a Bosch green SDS that’s usually about the £40-50 mark when on offer. Having struggled on putting some units up in my garage using my 18v cordless hammer, I went out and bought the Bosch and it was like a hot knife through butter. Horribly loud and destructive lol

So is this better quality than the Bosch that's available around the same price? Every drill that's posted seems to attract negativity in some way and it puts me off. Who cares if it has the same mechanical parts as another drill?


A tumble drier. Seriously though, are you drilling into brickwork? Almost any drill would do and get some decent drill bits. If you drill once a year I'd get a mains powered drill for £35. If you're into DIY then this drill is a good choice
