All JCB Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2019
There are now some very similar, but not identical looking power tools made in China. The brand names tell you little or nothing. The quoted power of the motors seems less than reliable and it’s hard to determine if the product offers good value. If you’re going to take £100 gamble, this might be a better bet – https://www.toolstation.com/einhell-2025-2000w-250mm-table-saw-stand/p47537
Firstly, thanks for taking the time to post. However; JCB tools are generally of very poor quality. A world apart from the exceptional standard of their machinery. Junk Chinese Bilge. Sorry OP. If I were you I'd take it back for refund and buy a reputable brand off of Marketplace. Just speaking from my personal experience.
Hi moved from discssions to Deals - when an item is listed and it's the permanent offer price then it can be listed in Discussions; or where it's likely to be a one off store specific item (manager special / only one local store with reduced limited stock / end of day food reductions / damaged box store specific etc) then the thread can be listed in Discussions > Retailer offers, but where the item is like this one - from a national retailer and which potentially could be reduced in other stores then it can be listed in deals along with the store location :)
New rules. Potential one-off and store specific offers go in the Retailer offers section of dicussions.
Think you want to put this in the deals section (confused)
Agree with greendayadam regarding the Hitachi/hikoki then you've got DeWalt and Makita for a bit more.as with most tools it's personal preference.
Is this a wireless router? Will it work through walls?
I use a Hitachi M12VE nearly everyday and it's an amazing piece of kit. You can get it some places for around £140. The build quality is excellent and it can cut through anything cleanly with a sharp bit
How much would people say you have to spend to get a good 1/2" router? Any recommendations? I was tempted by this one but the reviews say something about the handle not being at the right angle. :/
Does it have 5g WiFi?
This is a rubbish quality angle grinder.
Out of stock
Get your grind on!
Just picked up two in Liverpool work fine with Worx garden equipment. Only downside is the lack of battery level indicator but can live with that for the price. Heat Op (y)
Excellent if it turns up. I ordered twice and then got messages that they were out of stock (on clearance). In the end the manager offered me the newer and far more expensive ones but they are incompatible with my WORX stuff.
just got one ordered in Perth
Correct but good luck finding them - my experience suggests they've all gone now. Good deal while it lasted though.
They cut down street lights for which I use one at work
I bet the cordless version is perfect for cutting down those pesky Speed Cameras that grow by the side of the road ;)
There are a lot of complaints about JCB tools. They are not made by the same company that make the diggers. They sell the rights to the branding. Alba / Bush had them at one time, and I am sure I read recently that Draper have been involved.
Anyone else find that "brushed" motor tools batteries last a lot longer..? I have brushed and brushless, the brushless ones just stop, the brushed keep on going till the tools speed grinds to a halt, a lot more user friendly..
Yeah it's a great deal, I bought it for £110, mainly for the impact driver. But I've used the drill a fair amount and it performs well.
Thanks Ryan (y) Would you still recommend it though?
I bought this from B&Q a few months back. Definitely no hammer function on the drill.
Sammboy, do you have this actual set? The write up on the B&Q page says the drill has hammer function. I was going to buy one but this may put me off if it is incorrect. A combi drill would complement an impact driver much better than a normal drill driver as it then covers all uses. Thanks for the tip off if this is the case as my local BQ is out of stock so was going to travel 45 minutes to get one. Having said that, even if it is lacking hammer function it is still a very good deal.
How difficult is it to get a trade card though, and I bet some stores easier than others ..
You could always train for a few years, but I suppose the offer will be gone then ;) still you will have a trade that will be fairly useless in a country that does not build enough houses and has crumbling infrastructure :) on a serious note most of the trade point stuff is the same price! https://www.diy.com/departments/jcb-cordless-18v-2ah-li-ion-brushed-drill-impact-driver-with-2-batteries-with-1pc-50mm-double-ended-screwdriver-bit-jcb-18v-2-kit/5055803339265_BQ.prd see B+Q open to all with the cash :)
Trade only though so not available to most unfortunately
@97browng The deal is back on at Argos FYI:- https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/worx-wg927e-cordless-34cm-mower-trimmer-kit-2-batteries-3245012 And Amazon are now also price matching Argos. Although having said that, I bought 6 of these to use in my Worx mower (and other tools) and most of them don't actually work in my mower for some reason, even though they fit, they're charged and they work in my other Worx tools. It might just be my mower or batteries thoughh
Sorry, not aware that any of the compatible brands do a lawnmower. You could do a search for Guild, Erbauer, JCB to see but be aware that the latter two have recently changed to ne battery platforms so they'd have to be (recent) old models.
You don't happen to know if there are any lawnmower brands that work with this battery (apart from Worx). I was going to get the Worx strimmer and lawnmower set on Argos but it has gone back up in price. I already have a worx drill and now two of these batteries so if I had a compatible lawnmower it would be perfect.
These have been on clearance for ages. Nice deal though if you can find any locally.
Not true - no mod required. Workzone is NOT fully compatible with other brands.
50% off.. Nice @PennyTrader (y)
Does it have a braker function?
Thank just ordered for click and collect
Picture doesn't look like a sds drill
The code is not working
So confused how this deal is still live and so hot has no one bothered to test it? Code doesn't work on clearance items LOL!
These are compatible (ie same battery platform) with WORX, Guild, Erbauer (not the very latest range) and possibly others!
Tried this yesterday mate the code is only for non CLEARANCE ITEMS doesnt work... please remove.
Thanks for posting @Sol81k I've added the product name to the title. It helps people know what the product is as well as useful for searching too.
Thanks op, just about to take up some cobble setts and this will be much better than a my normal chisel! Saves hitting my fingers (:I
New Malden store had about 20 on Saturday, not sure how far away it is from you... I also got an it's been collected email but it was still waiting for me at the shop.
Ordered two on line last night, phone call this morning to say none in stock, then a text to say they were ready, then a text to say they had been collected, then an email to say I've been refunded. Hard to believe this is the same company as the (brilliant) Screwfix. The shrinking of Homebase may have given them a better chance of survival though!.
Good luck with that. Also understand the issue .. Mrs polar bear isn't keen on my projects either!.
No, they have a guy who does packs for bikes, skateboards etc.. we have a few local e-skateboard users (the non wimpy all terrain ones) so the engineering guy is capable & keen. its easier to smuggle these in the house than nissan leaf battery packs (y)
Sounds good!. But I don't see how regular welding will work with battery tabs.. might need to buy or make something specific to do that . Great Scott made one on YouTube not long ago.. may want to see that.
Looks like they've, 'cut' the price in... 'half'?
thanks - just what I needed! great deal!
Banging deal (excited)
This I didn't know. Thanks very much for that!
Have had a couple last a few months, and some over a year.Was being on the conservative side when said quite a few months. Never had one leak in a watch. Thanks for the link (y)
yes please i remember Eunicell being recommended on here and worked for me Generally avoid anything sold in poundland and have spotted these in HB so will do the same.
The closest I could find is this- https://kodakbatteries.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/techdoc_Lithium_Button_Cell_2032-1.pdf Kodak 210mAh (although rated for use at a slightly higher test current)
I was in Poundland today and they have a new pack of these lithium cells (8 assorted) with the Kodak brand name.
Yes, £2.99 for pack of 4 or 6, I do not remember exactly how many.
You need these for smoke alarms and pipe/cable detectors good price
Good price for these.
I bought these on Saturday. The choice was 1 (probably over-rated) Duracell for £1.99 or the 4 JCB for £2.99.
