Boach blue are fantastic (y)

Dnallov

Bosch Blue is what I use on the van, and have done with heavy use for the past 5 years. They are fantastic tools. I can only compare them against Makita, as we swapped from one to the other about 5 years ago (and still used in the workshop), and both are good, but Bosch batteries seem to last longer before they refuse to charge I've never used Dewalts tools, but can't imagine they are better than the equivalent Bosch. The linked Dewalt in the post top of thread is not an equivalent set; the numbers say it is actually slightly better, but not so much difference to justify 25% price difference IMO, and this Bosch seems like a fantastic deal. I've said in the past, and will say again it is personally preference, and you could go around in circles with others who prefer a manufacturer, but in reality people (include me) just get stuck using a manufacturer because they have the batteries, chargers etc. In this range, Makita, Dewalt, Bosch, Milwaukee And Hitachi (or whatever they are called now) are all good tools that most DIY users (which I suspect most here are) would be spoilt by their quality over some of the tat at the DIY end In any case, all professional tools have different scales of quality; this is about mid-range with a Metal Chuck & Brushless a real selling point. I was never a fan of the 2.0Ah batteries at first, but have grown to accept them; they charge fast between changes and make a nice compliment to my set. They do drain quicker, but I seem to have so many now it simply doesn't matter (y)

I buy the green tools, they are great for DIY. I bought a PSB 1800 LI-2 drill with 2 18V 1.5 Ah batteries for £55 then a PSB 1800 drill with and LI-2 with PDR 18 LI Impact driver with 2 18V 2Ah batteries for £75. I've also got a strimmer and a hedge clippers that take the same batteries so buying the diy ones is a no brainer for me.

xfirebladex

In fairness, it has been the direction portable power tools have been going in for the last 10 years. Now that routers, jigsaws, angle grinders, nail guns and table saws can be powered by the same battery, the need for a charger with each tool became redundant. That is all predicated on the fact that you have more than one tool of course. Passing the savings onto you! Though I doubt an impact driver would be anyone's first purchase in any line of portable power tools.

Well that was a first for me waiting for Aldi to open this morning, at 10 to 8 there was already a queue, bought 2 of the 20/40v batteries a charger a drill and the grinder, everything performed well and I now have a full set of seats in the car, had no trouble cutting 4mm sheet steel to sandwich the floor pans to spread the load of replacement front seats. Money well spent. I also bought a set of drill bits that claim to need no centre punch and they performed as promised too. Only negative I have is the grinder comes with no case, so I will modify one from an old 240v grinder.

BogBeast

Respectfully disagree. Cant speak to this particular impact driver but I bought a Ryobi one years ago and found it to be one of the most useful tools. I now have a compact battery SDS drill for drilling holes and an impact driver for screws and bolts. My combi drill hardly ever gets used. I have some impact rated bits, but mostly use standard 50mm bits straight into the wrench an had no issues with bit longevity. Point taken about the noise if you have loads of people working on a site with them, but for most serious DIYers wont have this issue and an impact driver is a great tool to have in the bag (y)

Toonarmy69

I find the quoted torque figures are false. They cant cope with some stuff that a Makita can which is a lower torque tool. LIDL Parkside are the same!

Big.A

popped into an Aldi on the way home and both had chargers and batteries (20v) in stock.

Amur

I went the route of buying these types of deals many years ago, batteries always end up giving up first and no chance of getting spares after a few years. For the last 15 yrs I been using Ryobi. I picked up a two drill & battery deal years ago from one of the big DIY stores sales and have never looked back. Throughout that time the original Ni-cad batteries have died but were replaced by lithium ions, all of my Ryobi tools are still working and even picked up a 'compatible' battery from amazon which has been very good for a fraction of the cost. The tools aren't pro quality but fine for heavy home use and better than most of these type of deals. The Ryobi impact driver is a beast! plus it has to be more environmentally better to use the same kit for ever!, since using the One+ system I've never had to throw and tool in to landfill.

CNCboss

Don't know, haven't tried. In theory, maybe (yes I know it's an impact driver not a wrench) if the 180Nm is correct and you have a 1/4hex to 1/2sq adapter. I think you'd be better off with a breaker bar though.

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

HarryBobs

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.

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

2020Essex

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) 🏻

juggym

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

glasgowgeezer

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.

Ecosystem is just marketing, All the big brands sell batterys and body only drills, So Ryobi is doing nothing special, Einhell have the same thing, Your actually better off with the cheaper stuff as a lot of them use the same battery system a lot of the time, And even that Duratool battery looks the same fit as the Worx, Which is the same as Erbuaer and Argos Guild 10v drills, So easier to pick up cheap kits here and there,And I don't think Ryobi are all that.

Nickofh

In theory a corded hammer drill with some quality masonry bits and the driver listed would be good enough for light DIY. If it were me though I would wait for a deal on an 18v Bosch or DeWalt combi drill and invest in one of those. If you feel flush or fancy a new tool add an impact driver to the kit at a later date.

Besford

Just tell her you're not feeling well!

spinatrix

My dad gave me his old wired drill which luckily has hammer mode. But a part from that I have power tools. And with the coronavirus the wife is expecting me to do millions of jobs around the house.

Nickofh

This tool is perfect for fitting decking at home. Yes the battery won't last all day but it will get the job done easier than just with a combi drill. It's not going to be much use for hanging blinds unless you have already drilled the holes with something else. Another listing has the drill and impact for about 55 , unfortunately though it looks like it doesn't have an hammer mode so it wouldn't be much use for masonry work. Do you have any kit at the moment?

astramondeo

Question not directed at me I know, but personally, when using larger screws, l would drill a clearance hole, slightly smaller than the diameter of the screw I was using, in the top piece of wood and a pilot hole in the bottom piece. Prevents splitting, fastens the pieces together tight, and also makes lighter work of driving the screw home. With smaller screws I would just use a pilot hole through both.

"ideal for fast and fluid screwing" Ooooooooooooooooh naughty

blackbird166

My comment was aimed more at the comments regarding lack of torque. Just add a 1/2-inch x 1/4-inch Impact Adaptor to the wrench and it'll drive large screws into wood etc twice as fast as the impact driver.. I have two Ryobi impact drivers but always end up using the wrench with adapter instead. One of my best Ryobi purchases, and I have many, too many I'm told.🤭

CheapLife

I have the brushless impact driver and drill driver. The impact driver is LOUD but works well. Sounds like a prehistoric woodpecker. I started using the drill driver in the evening to drive screws as the other one's clicking is so loud but it nearly took my hand off at the wrist a few times! Made me appreciate the impact driver (y) P.S. I have the glue gun - got it in one of the Ryobi promotions and it's really useful but not sure I'd pay over the odds for it. Keep an eye out for their promotions

astramondeo

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.

JoeLennox

The problem with own brand labels like Erbauer is that there are fewer deals around because it's only one shop. You can often pick up good deals on Ryobi stuff through hot UK deals. Also you don't have to worry about them being discontinued like you do with own brands.

I had to google it and read a bit to understand the true benefit and yeah I don't think it warrants me getting one for what I need to do. Main benefits are easier/more efficient screwing and also that its good for removing tough/tight screws.

antsgame

Have a look on YouTube bud. Much easier to see what the improvement is with driving screws with drivers. Drill is a drill I would go with a Combi :)

Is the purpose of this to screw into hard surfaces such as concrete? Just wondering what situations you would opt to do that in, rather than drill first. Been looking at a combi drill which I think will be most appropriate for my not too frequent DIY needs, but still interested to know.

I'm not an expert, take the fallowing with a large pinch of salt. Firstly i would say that this tool needs a battery and a charger to go with it, so factor that in cost wise, and while the bigger brands (Makita, Dewalt, Milwaukee, etc..) tend to be better quality tools, they are pricey if only to be used for DIY, in-fact I wouldn't recommend going with any of them if you only want a couple tools, as the real value comes when you have several tools that share the same battery system. That said this impact driver can indeed do a lot of the tasks of a normal drill, but know its limitations, firstly it only accepts bits using a 1/4 inch hex shank so you cant use straight shank bits, hex bits tend to be a little pricier. Also impacts are a lot noisier than a standard drill. impact drivers have rotational hammer which gives them high torque (good for large fasteners) but no in-line hammer action so not really suited for masonry drilling. TLDR Impacts Pros: High torque, low wrist strain - Great for large fasteners while safer Can drill a lot of the same stuff as standard drill, and in my opinion some cases are faster and even have cleaner holes smaller/lighter than standard drill - gives more control / gets into tighter spaces Impacts Minus: Noisy compared to standard drill Only used pricier hex shanks bits Not as versatile as standard drill Not suited for masonry drilling Best of luck.

fastcarmaniac

This isn’t suitable for drilling, if new to tools you’d be best off getting a drill/driver. Impact drivers are mainly for screws, most drills have high/low speed settings so will be able to drill and screw but the screwing would be done differently to an impact driver

tas_shah

Hi Quick question- I don’t have a drill and I never have had one. I am thinking of getting my first drill I done my research (google) and dewalt and makita is the best I think. I don’t have any tools and my neighbors are reluctant to lend me things (I broke 2 spades!) can I get this and use it as a drill? What about getting this and a cheap screw driver?
