Proving yet again how Rip Off Britain works in action!
All JCB Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
I got some of these and as soon as I popped them in anything they read as low battery. Wouldn’t pay a penny for them.
Put these is my digger and they were useless
Agree with all of the above, plus JCB is registered in Netherlands and doesn't pay tax in UK. Despite this, it got given a government loan as part of lockdown support by the UK government.
Maybe now, or tgey drpped in price, these were £0.99 at HB: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/jcb-6-x-coin-cells-variety-pack-cr2016-cr2025-cr2032-at-home-bargains-in-store-3191374
59p at home bargains
Thank you will go instore
It says check in store on the 19th in the advert (y)
Will these be instore on the 19th?
Best work boots I ever had, lasted forever and so so comfortable
Good price with mid sole protection
It depends on what you mean by "them" ? If you are asking about this deal then just click on the link. If you are talking about the Aldi one then the answer is no.
Are they still selling them?
I was leaning towards the Einhell. There's an offer on at Toolstation where you also get the battery and charger for the bare unit price of £74.99. There are some awful Trustpilot reviews for the Einhell brand though - although not specifically for the Impact Drivers, they've really put me off. Edit: Dewalt, Makita and Milwaukee also get savaged on Trustpilot. It's obviously somewhere people go to sound off when they've had a problem. Feeling a little more confident now.
Allot of battery powered tools don't have a charger or battery these days so it looks like your getting a bargain until you have to add on the extras & potentially the postage & packing for them :/
I'm after a drill/ driver combo. Einhell and Ozito are the same brand and interchangeable. I'm considering buying this brand as it seems one of the best budget brands out there. Still waiting on the right deal.
Out of stock
This should do it (2 batteries too!): https://www.toolstation.com/bauker-18v-li-ion-cordless-drill-driver/p91867 Or even this: https://www.toolstation.com/bauker-12v-li-ion-cordless-drill-driver/p83914
Just go on ebay or something search drill brush attachment, absolutely loads to choose from. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274411200901
Please share link to said cloth brush attachment
Yeah I said above I knew I didn't need an impact I'm just clueless with drills, the one I had was just some naff thing my grandad gave me and hes been dead 10 years so it must have been at least 15 years old. This hammer function is that to just get stubborn screws in the wall when they dont want to? The one somebody linked me somebody said it didn't have a charger so didn't bother... I'm just wanting something with everything ready for me
Technically correct - but I'll probably still be calling them flush mounted pattress boxes in years to come ... and where do you get "patrice" from? :)
A Patrice goes on the surface fella (lol)
no, plumbers ARE big tools.
It's a description for its most common use, I wouldn't get too het up about it. Like a steak knife - it's just a knife of some sort, could use it to cut cheese or fruit. Or a pasting brush - just a brush of some sort, could use it to paint or apply sun cream.
Anyone else manage to find a charger for this? Struggling to find one.
Thanks for the info
I did bit of digging and from what I can tell this is a new range started in January. This new stuff is not compatible with anything I know so far. Got the driver and the battery and driver is really powerful compared to my work zone driver. Has a little lag between pressing the trigger and motor kicking in maybe due to it being brushless but still very good for the price. B&Q does the brushed version for £80.
I’d love to also find out, I know there’s someone out there that does know this info because I remember someone posted a compatibility list on another post a few months back but I just can’t find the post. I would live to buy this drill but don’t want to buy the charger and battery if I already have something that’s computable. I have dewalt and Worx.
Anyone found out if these batteries and charger are compatible worn any other brands?
But also conservative donors therefore actually support privatisation of NHS
Price back up to full when checking out, also free delivery code in app not working. Expired
Ordered thanks op
JCB....the people who make....JCB's...... And ventilators for our NHS....hurrah....
And with rechargables usually 1.2v and Standards 1.5v there are a number of items that need the 1.5v to function.
These are the worst batteries I have ever had, cheap but for a reason, dont last long at all.
Can't always do that, 150+ batteries in use in our house, I have kids & a Mrs who don't return or look after rechargeables & a lot of the stuff the batteries sit in for years, not the best for rechargeables. It takes pot loads of money and effort to keep on top of that many rechargeables, I use a mix, some alkaline some rechargeable.
These are junk. Had a set in a cupboard. They were all dead 3 months after I bought them.
What are good ones to get (I've heard Ikea?). The £15 (for their) charger puts me off as I don't go through batteries, still got ones in the remote that came with the TV in the summer of 2018.
Heat - ordered!!!!!!!!
Thanks, unexpired :)
I ordered one at £34.99. Great find thanks
It let me order?
these will keep the wife buzzing all night
I still come across some equipment which don't work or work well with the 1.2V rechargeable batteries so alkalines and the like are the only option.
While £2.29 is a very good price, if you add the postage it will be more expensive than their normal price at Home Bargains, £3.99. This price is OK for those who want them delivered. I wish they would have had a C&C for £2.29...
Or around £4, as these are £3.99 at HB.
You pick these up in Home Bargains for around the £3 price.
Thanks for the heads up.
Appreciate that info.
Had one. Took it back. Wasn't impressed, it struggled to cut through standard size decking boards without cutting out. The JCB drills are worth a punt tho. Loads for your money
More tools from jcb on discount there
Good to see the battery will help give this tool the oomph it deserves!! Heat added OP (y) 🔥
You're too optimistic expecting a good sell price, if you want to get rid of them, you need to pay others :D
I've got two kids and it's all hype, definitely not worth it. Just waiting for a good sell price so I can shift them (y)
Still got mixed feelings about this😁
And this is why I'll never have kids. Just not worth it.
Nah a good hard smack on the arse is all that is required! Or slap upside the head if you are from USA! Never did me any harm gibble gibble wibble wibble wobble what wur am i sayin wibble wibble slavver slaaver! ;) PS. Little tightarse tip - go to lidl and raid their battery bucket bin for alkalines and recharge em they do actually recharge 3 or 4 times depending on the brand!
Metal and plastic (y)
Is this toy metal of sorts coated wirh plastic paint? or all plastic> thanks
Great find, just ordered one for my Grandson
That's great OGD (y) No worries, glad I could help :)
"The kitchen" and I'll be looking out for those clearance deals then. Should be bargains if they go cheaper than this :D
I have some info from the kitchen. And I have an account on their wholesale website. Just they said that sales are not as expected and very soon all JCB will end up on their clearance page.
Thanks for your feedback. I've not personally used JCB drills or impacters. How do you know they're not going to stock them much longer?
I have this for like 2 weeks, good dril, powerful impakt. And the price is just perfect. Unfortunately Toolstop will discontinue JCB .
You bought them then? :D
Anyone know what the quality of these is like ?????????????
Good to see a couple of 7mm drill bits. :)
This is their new price from the current catalog. So it will be this price for a while.
Yes I think so.
Is it good?
Click n collect.
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)
