I just checked and still available for me. Maybe they found more stock?

Besford

I have both. Both good and most of the time I prefer the Guild as it's lighter to use. No doubt the Ryobi would be better for the jobs which need more 'oomph', but how often is that? Ryobi more than twice the price too.

I have had the same erbauer cordless for over 5 years now works and charges like new (and I have used the hammer function A LOT), brilliant gear in my opinion. I would buy these if the one I bought originally actually needed replacing. Don't take my word for it, check the reviews they are all very positive.

Besford

Erbauer shares the battery fitting with WORX, Guild, Rockwell in the USA and some others. I suspect they come from the same manufacturer in China (Positec). I've had great service from WORX and Guild stuff. https://www.positecgroup.com/our_company

I buy Dewalt now but I have two Challenge 10v drills bought from Argos about 20 years ago for a Fiver each lol,still going strong,use them for rough work,actually replaced all the guttering on the house with them,one for drilling and one for screwing,around 300 screws and a fence with around 40 uprights with four 75mm screws in each,the cheap ones did the job no bother, budget brands are not all bad.

TonySquared

Would stay well clear of these, perhaps my bad experience but broke two of the drill drivers building a simple bench for the garden. Both times the motor burnt out within 2-3 hours of use. Went with Makita in the end, done me good for 18months so far with no issue.

Neiliboy

This is great info. I'm a DIYer and cant justify paying the prices for DeWalt/Makita/Milwaukee. I might drill a couple of dozen holes a year at best. The Erbauer reviews seem good and as long as theyre back up by warranty i'll probably get these.

Doubt it, buy yourself a cheap SDS

Murgatr0yd

For fixing plasterboard, you can get a plasterboard fixing bit for the cordless drill, which attempts (albeit badly) to replicate the function of a drywall screwgun. Wouldn’t suggest anyone try fixing plasterboard using an impact driver as it will quickly punch screws straight through the paper face of the board, losing almost all of the fixing strength and hugely increasing the chance of the board coming loose of the fixing.

dean.funkyfish

Impact drivers are poor,tool mine back twice and exchanged for bosch set no problems since

No8

Think you're being sucked in by the name - drill has no hammer function, only 1.3Ah batteries and only 10.8v. Yes, DeWalt are good quality, but the Erbauer easily out-performs this.

err, okay then :/

QuidProQuo

mine did it with no hands (highfive)

andynicol

Definitely the battery? Have you tried with another battery? You will notice a difference as the 10.8v DeWalt impact (DCF815) isn't as powerful as the 18v Makita DTD146. Makita LXT 3.0Ah Batteries are around £40 new.

andynicol

Thats not the point that you put across, what you said was 'Isn't it a little pointless buying a driver and impact driver?' , and I attempted to answer that question and put the point across that they are 2 different tools for different tasks. But to address your new question 'why do I want a 10.8V driver when I can do the same with my hammer drill?', there's a place for smaller, lighter drivers like I've mentioned previously, particularly when in tight spaces, or up a ladder where through prolonged use, the lighter tool will be noticeable and make for an easier job. Totally agree re interchangeable batteries, and for your average household, an 18v combi/hammer would tick all the boxes, and be useable in all tasks, couple that with a matching impact and you've covered all the basics, BUT try installing a new kitchen with only an 18v combi, you'll manage but will constantly be changing drill bits and screwdriver bits every couple of minutes. There's a reason tradesman have multiple tools for varying tasks, 10.8/12v smaller drivers for tight spaces etc, 18v combi for up top of the scaffold to save taking more than one power tool up there, 24v SDSplus for drilling into that concrete lintel, impact for removing stubborn screws and longer deck/fencing screws, but for most households its overkill, but don't knock them as 'underpowered' just because you don't see/have a need for them.

Thought of doing that, but there is an aspect of laziness on my side, but will have a look at it now you mentioned it. Thanks

MrMatt991

I have a 10.8v (hammer) drill for small jobs and screwdriving. Much more portable than either, and actually still has a good variable speed control and plenty of torque for all but the most ridiculous screwdriving. I don't see the point of getting a non-hammer action drill when the hammer ones are barely a pound dearer, barely 100g heavier, and barely 10mm larger.

scott2c

Just paid this amount for a higher capacity replacement battery and charger

joseph00334

This one or the Aldi one for 49.99?? Thanks

cheesemane

Thanks for the very useful feedback. I do have a (very) heavy duty corded SDS hammer drill which I use for pretty much anything masonry related, but it does weigh an absolute ton. I guess it would still be handy to have a smaller hammer drill that can be picked up without a weight lifting back support, especially for use on ladders etc...

Some misinformation here. As others have said, Maktec is long gone so this old stock. Might not be a bad thing, so long as Makita have stock of the batteries to replace them if these are duffers. Maktec was re-branded MT a few years back. They're old-tech Makita mainline tools, i.e. what was blue Makita a few years ago, re-branded and possibly with a few cost-savings thrown in. They're still marketed to pro's (albeit ones who may not use said tool day-in, day-out), and still backed by Makita's 3 year pro-use warranty. They're not strictly DIY tools and absolutely not the equivalent of green Bosch. Sometimes the cost difference between the main line and MT version is minimal, in which case it makes sense to go for the lastest version (main line), but in a lot of cases the difference can be significant (1/4" router at half the price, for example). Either way they're still generally much better value than the equivalently priced offerings from DIY brands.

Captain.Banana

Maktec are Makitas offerings to the DIY market. A bit like Bosch green compared to the blue professional range. Problem is the price is not a lot different to professional tools when they come on special offer at tool outlets.

Apparently it's a real help if you're doing something like building a deck with hundreds of long screws.

therealjohnpeat

I needed an example which actually had a torque figure and that's all I could come-up with on account of how interfering with dead tree carcasses isn't my thing ;0 Do you even need an impact to drive woodscrews - maybe to remove em but you shouldn't need help putting them IN surely?

Besford

It's an impact driver - for screwing screws into wood, etc. It's not an impact wrench for taking wheelnuts off, etc.

therealjohnpeat

Torque is "twisting force" - forces are measured using nm (Netwon Metres - metric) or lbft (foot-pounds - Imperial) The Joule is a measure of energy (in metric - for imperial see Calorie) and also "work done" which is the application of a force (see above) over distance/time Torque matters because we'd like it to break things loose - by way of example, most wheelnuts are torqued to 80-120nm - you need slightly less force to undo them (unless they're cross-threaded or rusty) but it's likely that 90nm isn';t going to release some of those (and wheelnuts are a really common use for impacts) End-of-the-day - an impact's usefulness is based on how may uggaduggas it can deliver tho - it's not the unit they use but it's the unit we need

Smithington

I bought the Wickes impact driver over Easter, while it was £46. I'm a little underwhelmed to be honest, as it goes into protect mode very easily. I'd imagine that realistically, it's got closer to 90nm than 140. I've kept it though, as lets face it, I paid £46 and don't expect it to equal say a makita alternative the specs suggest it keeps up with. That and my needs aren't that great - I'm not in a related trade, I just want to occassionaly drive a load of screws easily, not day in day out. Just saying this so that people don't buy the Wickes one thinking it will be significantly better. Anyone planning to buy from Wickes should do so online, as in store it's still £69! I'll probably get flamed for this, but it seems pretty common for people to have a passionate opinion on whether a deal is hot or not, even if the subject matter isn't their interest. This amuses me no end.

1/4 inch impact ????

agent003

Im not rating this deal as cannot see the point of the 6, 8 and 10mm hex since you are also getting the socket adapters hence should had a socket set to use with them and at these sizes you can't torque them that much anyways. However, the 3 piece adaptor set is only £4.29 for the 3 and I must admit that I was impressed after stressing the 1/2" with a 19mm and 22mm socket and changing wheels and brake disks on a van in conjunction with the latest dewalt impact driver (3 speed setting one). I was very impressed with the strength.

It's a blessing these aren't available - look in the Q&A section at the max torque ratings. Pointless junk.

Fine for wheelnuts but if you're using on suspension or crankpulley kind of stuff then ime these Lidl ones just aren't upto the task. We've been using a cheapo Clarke similar to (might actually be) this for many years and not failed us yet. It depends what you expect from it so long as you have realistic expectations for £30. Depending on what you already have they do get in 18v cordless ones which I think they were £40 last time and not much different powerwise between them iirc. Or just get yourself a decent 1/2 breaker and some impact sockets. (strong)
