Bought for 98 few months ago. Cold
Sponsored deal vs standard.
Why is this getting cold when there’s the same drill, dearer with 98 degree heat further on down the list. People are voting cold for no reason
It was on lighting deals for a day. I was about to buy it but is not powerful enough for me.
Didn't know that - begs the question why this one, which is on amazon, is getting heat (confused) It was on Amazon at c£200 for less than a day it seems (according to camel tracker). That may have been a mistake, but this is still a good (and current) deal compared normal prices Anyhoo... here come the cold votes !
Literally just few days back was £200 on amazon
It's £279.99 for me, but cold seeing as FFX has the same model for £244 (Inc Delivery)
Still valid the offer
Expired. Price has gone back up.
£287 for me as well.
Hopefully the feedback in here helps explain why this one was voted cold @RogerBall Thanks for sharing your first deal with the community and i'm looking forward to seeing your next one! :)
Personally I'd spend a bit more and get a kit like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Makita-DLX2145TJ-Cordless-Drill-And-Impact-Driver-2-x-5AH-Batteries/173907871491?hash=item287db78703:g:UMMAAOSwrSdZhMfa If the 5.0Ah batteries are overkill for you then try and get the individual bits separately. Makita has recently launched a 2.0Ah battery for the LXT range as well - yet to try one but its meant to deliver 50% more run time than the 1.5Ah and charges in around 25 minutes. Charge times for the Makita DC18RC The DC18RC Will charge 18v and 14.4v LXT slide battery's in the below times: 3.0Ah - 22 minutes4.0Ah - 36 minutes5.0Ah - 45 minutes6.0Ah - 55 minutes
G series aka garbage series, avoid. Compatibility nightmare. Go for the 18v LXT. If your budget is tight or for mainly 2nd fix the 12v CXT series would be better than this and similar money.
60 mins to charge a 1.5ah battery? get in the bin.
Avoid 1.5ah battery's
Thanks. Ordered :)
"This seller is currently away until 13 May, 2020, and isn't processing orders at this time. You can add this item to your Watch list to keep track of it. " I ordered my set on Thursday and it arrived this morning. .
Me too. It says they are back tomorrow (13th May) though. They are just what I need to defrost my freezer :)
That's what I get?
This is for an entry level drill dhp453 which is 43nm torque... the one I posted is heavy duty 82nm torque.
Scewfix has this for £199. Only difference is that it has 4.0 batteries instead of the 5.0 here. Not sure the 1.0 is worth £50. Screwfix
I understand it isn’t brushless, but as someone has said it is a very quick job and couple pound to do it should they need replacing. Plus the main selling point difference is the extra 20nm of torque the makita offers, meaning all masonry drilling will be a lot easier which is what I need for the work I’m to do. Hope all works out with your new toy tho 😁 (y) 🏻
Agree, but missing the biggest difference. My two suggestions are brushless. It looks like the Makita isn't. That's an important spec to disregard (in terms of quality and price). I've just gone with the DeWalt. Got delivered yesterday. It's incredibly powerful
I have to say I prefer Makita. Not that Dewalt or Milwaukee are bad and by and large they are all very close in quality and features, but in the UK Makita have a wider range available from a wider range of retailers and are often better priced. If I was looking at things like portable table saws and other bigger tools I would probably go with Dewalt but for smaller power tools there isn't that bag a difference.
This is like Lamborghini quality tools. Unfortunately all my tools are DeWalt.
Any links to read about this?
Cheers but no need to buy one until my Makita gives up the ghost. There's plus and minuses on both brands.
Correct me if I'm wrong but are these and mafell the same company?
Is this battery will work with this MODEL??
Free delivery if spending £50 +
That deal has gone now.
You cannot go wrong with Ryobi kit! OK, it's not up to the standard of expensive professional gear, the likes of DeWalt, Milwaukee and Makita and more suited to your advanced DIYer, but the overall cost of ownership can be very little if you are clever. I bought 20+ of the Blue ONE+ range + Ni-Cd batteries around 12 years which IMHO looked nicer than the current septic infection green/yellow colour. As the years went by, I sold my Ni-Cd batteries and chargers for not much less than I paid for the Lithium battery replacements. Then started to upgrade to the newer colour scheme about 4 years ago whenever I saw them at very low prices and subsidised the purchase of the new tools by selling my older blue ONE+ tools, which again nearly paid for the new tools. I still have a few blue tools left and will upgrade them when the time comes and their replacements are at as good price. I ended up with the drill mentioned by the OP here, angle grinder and impact driver for virtually less than free as they were part of the free starter pack tool promo a few months back and after buying the three starter packs, selling the chargers, batteries, tool bags and also the free tool, all three tools were less than free. Plus, I also sold the blue version that they were replacing. Gotta say my favourite Ryobi ONE+ tools are the AirStrike 16G Nail Gun, Mitre Saw and Impact Driver. Most useless is the Heat Gun (wife's Dyson hair drier gets hotter), but I suppose that what you get generating heat form 18v batteries. It's about OK for cable heat shrink. Quite fancied the glue gun, but I guess it will take ages to heat up like the heat gun.
did any get this, i was refunded...
Seller has put their price up for some reason, the code is still valid but they've upped their price by over £800 (lol)
Price now shows £999.99? Has it expired?
It's £150. I would be looking for more than just 30nm for that price.
I can only speak from my own experience, which is automotive, with the 12v range of Sealey tools, I repair and maintain vehicles and the Sealey tools I bought and use on a daily basis are the CP1204 impact wrench and the CP1202 rachet wrench, both 3/8" drive. Both appear to be well made, perform very well and I get good battery life from both. I would say I use the impact wrench more, and usually for repetative things like removing/refitting the numerous fasteners around engine covers and under trays now fitted to modern vehicles, but it easily copes with larger stuff, up to 13mm, and is a great labour and time saver. The rating is 80nm but I find this adequate for a 3/8 drive wrench. I see someone has posted that the Milwaukee wrench is rated at 310nm. While it's nice to have this sort of power you do not need it on a small wrench and will find you will be snapping bolts or stripping threads when tightening them if not careful. I'm not knocking Milwaukee stuff, like you I have several of their tools and they are excellent and have recently replaced my Dewalt 18volt combi drill with a Milwaukee one and I am very pleased and wont be going back. I also have the Milwaukee 18v 1/2" drive impact wrench, the high torque version, which is a beast and will cope with anything, but again you have to be careful to prevent sheared bolts.
Price is now £217.92
The seller is no longer offering free delivery, it's now £4.99 more
Reasonable price but I'm kicking myself for missing the tool-only deal for £105 the other day
Says Tstack case is included too!
£120, no battery. Price on amazon is now £134
How much did you payed for it? With or without battery?
@danflorin3 I bought the DHR202Z a couple of weeks ago along with that same SDS+ drill and chisel set. I've been battering away with those chisels and they have been fantastic. Never owned an SDS hammer drill before, the power they provide is incredible.
I"m not disappointed at all. I will just go for the set you've recommended me ( currently£27...) and I will drop the set I had linked in previous comm.
Whoa! I hope it doesn't disappoint now ! That set above is for a normal drill or impact driver with a 1/4 inch hex fitting. Its specifically SDS bits your looking for. I have this set , it has lasted year's of heavy diy kitchen and bathroom fitting etc. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Makita-D-21200-Plus-Drill-Chisel/dp/B002K89SG2/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=makita+sds+set&qid=1588520099&sr=8-1#immersive-view_1588520125468 18quid on warehouse deals at moment.
Ordered but have just received an email from them explaining that they have internal stock issues so have cancelled my order... Shame as I've got some small odd jobs to get on with and my old cordless drill decided to go up in smoke just the other day
Drill toys and some nappies cost more than this. Quality might be the same.
All gone mate but great find!
How can you say this is a "great drill" when you have been through 4 in 2 years dude? These drills are utter rubbish, mine lasted 10 mins going through a standard concrete block using a brand new 50mm marcrist core, the motor burnt out, ffx just told me to contact dewalt (black and decker) who collected it and still have it 2 months later. If anyone is thinking of buying this drill please look elsewhere ie. Makita 8406, I borrowed an old one of these yesterday and drilled 6 x 127mm cores, my arm was hanging off but the drill just kept going.
Blimey ... What is it that you do?
Great drill, but they burn out quite easily so use with caution. And give it plenty breaks if it's protesting. I've been thru four of these in 2 years.
£230 in Screwfix so great price. Not sure I know why there's such a thing as dedicated core drills though as decent SDS drills with a clutch do the job well enough and without breaking your wrist...
For sheer range of tools Makita seems best DeWalt come second for that I'd say, but I read negative comments about quality and reliability. DeWalt seemed to choose the highest power on paper over real world reliability. I was trying to decide a few years ago and was worried etc about my choice but very glad I went with Makita. They have a great range and unexpected accessories, and good deals on batteries and tools. It's easy to get good bare tools for around £50 or a lot more if you want. I've seen, and bought some, excellent Amazon deals for Makita. I have an Amazon alert and haven't seen the same for the others. I would say Milwaukee may well have better quality tools than DeWalt, but may be less extensive and harder to get in the UK. If you just want the best drill and not ecosystem Panasonic may well be better. Their drills seem excellent. Bosch blue have wireless charging But Makita is very easy to extend, with existing kit. If you have a stack of 5ah and a twin charger then the 2 x 16V (32V) system is neat. I'm only a home user. I use their lights, vacuum cleaner, speaker etc more than anything. Their new speakers/radios look awesome
I have used dewalt and makita and I just prefer the feel and options available with makita. Never used a Milwaukee though. I changed all mine from dewalt to makita, mainly due to the cheaper batteries, better choice and the adapters that I could get for a standard twin battery circular saw to make it a rail saw with the rails.
Problem is every review of Makita vs Dewalt vs Milwaukee has a different conclusion based on the 39472 different model numbers and the brand bias of the reviewer so it is difficult to make any reasonable conclusions. Price also varies massively, although the one conclusion I do have is that Makita batteries seem easier and cheaper to come by.
List out the tools you want and start checking those reviews and prices
Me too..... be great to hear what you go for
Would you recommend this for professional usage? Is this definitely a hammer drill?
Says on the description but not sure how good it is. I passed up on the chance to buy it to see myself :(
Absolutely useless when it comes to stuff like this, but I checked the link and nothing seems to suggest that it is actually the hammer drill version?
heat added looks good to me .my friend is looking for a drill I told her about this .she has ordered but it may take 14 days for delivery.
And the non hammer version is red hot at £55 right now? HUKD doesn't abide by standard laws of logic.
Absolutely...just thought they may and try and supply without the battery..
This is why the deal was hot. It’s normal price without the battery😃
Delivered yesterday..with a battery..surprised order wasn't cancelled..and was expecting battery not 2b there...happy days..shame 4those who got theirs cancelled..they shd honour the orders...
Mine got cancelled
Wow what a deal. Shame it’s gone
Getting a 404 error now on the Nuts and Bolts link
Picked it up from there. Very good price (y)
Register for 3 year warranty
Cheers for the site. Never heard of them before
Amazon didn’t honour the deal, it got cancelled :-/
If anyone is after this set I am willing to sell my, message me an offer
Buggery missed this
This is an exceptional price for an exceptional bit of kit. I can’t imagine there’s much this thing couldn’t drill through...
I had one in my basket and then the wife called me for our evening meal before I completed check out. Basket empty now :(
Been this price for quite some time.
Lol Argos and other retailers that pull stuff like this should get fined!
As previously mentioned, Argos was selling the item for £5 in Dec/Jan just gone. I see that Argos have now classified the current £8 sale price as 'Clearance'. They're having a laugh . . . . https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/challenge-lithium-ion-screwdriver-36v-5-at-argos-3388651
As above. I have a light duty 18v drilldriver, an 18v brushless drill/driver with hammer action, an 18v impact driver. And one of these :) Basically it’s light as heck, microusb charged and great for jobs like unscrewing battery compartments, signs, light duty flat pack. Mind you I think it was on here for £4 when I got it last month which is what made me get it. It’s probably the lightest duty build quality battery screwdriver I’ve seen mind
Only thing I would say is that the screwdrivers are actually quite useful. I picked up a cheap guild one (similar to this) and it’s probably the tool I use the most. It’s great for flat pack furniture and easier to grab and use to unscrew one thing then by hand or pulling out the dewalt drill
Drill - keyed chuck Sander - £15 is normal for hook and loop, and this isn't. Palm sander is a good price. Screwdriver - it was £5 after Christmas on clearance, so they've actually put the price up.
