I ordered one. Should get nearly £20 for my standard SD charger on ebay so a cheap upgrade! Thanks.

Zaxxan

Yes, it was. Thanks for posting, hopefully I'll be quicker to order next time!

d4zzyb

Well, it was good while it lasted... (lol)

Zaxxan

Oh ok. I've never thought of it like that. I vote hot if it's a good deal and available and don't vote if it's gone up in price. Obviously vote cold if it's a rubbish deal! Shame it didn't last long. At least one person got it at the cheap price.

ivegotafurryknob

The Bosch set has multi construction bits which should NOT be used with hammer action as this will wear the cutting edges quicker. They are super Sharp and don't need hammer action.

nylec

Thanks. Is there a particular set that you'd recommend? I've already purchased this set and the Bosch set. I'll keep an eye out for a bigger battery. Not sure on the chuck, it arrived yesterday and not opened it yet but this is it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07YT5HGH3/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_.h40EbPQTTV0R Cheers.

david49

Ahh, not what I thought. The Bosch multipurpose drill bits are great for odd-jobs and should be fine for most DIY jobs, BUT... after using them in masonry (even once) the edge disappears - so they are still great for masonry but for wood and metal they’re not so great in my opinion. Basically the drill tends to drift through the wood, splinters and in soft alloys it burrs up - and not drill straight - one way to minimise this is to drill with a smaller bit and then increase in size. My preference is always a separate and dedicated set of drills for for masonry and the same for wood/metal. You only need a couple of sizes for masonry tbh. 5, 6 & 8mm will suffice for virtually all the wall plugs you are likely to use. I have a small set (4 to 8mm ) of these multipurpose bits I keep in my cordless box for when I’m out and about and they have got me out of all sorts of trouble where I wouldn’t have had the right drill type otherwise. My suggestion is to keep this set for masonry and buy the Makita set - or preferably a similar set with drill sizes up to 10mm for wood and metal. Btw the cordless drill you have will be fine but when you see a bigger battery on sale I suggest you take advantage. Apart from the higher run-time you will get more torque from a bigger battery contrary to what some people suggest - I know as I use a range from 1.2ah to 6ah and even when fully charged the difference in torque is night & day. Does your drill/driver have a standard chuck?

You’re very welcome. Those Sealeys will see you through. Concrete is a challenge for sure. Depending on size/depth SDS may be the way forward.

Ugh. You use a comma before “but” where you are using two independent clauses. My grammar was correct. Sharing my experience is, by any definition, contribution to the community. I wasn’t slating you, I was suggesting that the product isn’t necessarily the best way to spend your money. You were irrationally defensive and aggressive. Anyway, time to let it go. I take it is a personal failure that I let you drag me into a pointless debate.

I used them only once, had the best price online for the product I wanted and next day delivery, I thought they were excellent.

Yeah very hit and miss according to reviews. Used once was fine for me.

I've used them, incidently for Makita kit. No issues, quite sure they delivered next day too. I'd happily buy from them again and they do have some good prices at times. Cheers

What are Anglia like to deal with? I was looking at a different product to buy from them but they seem to have quite poor reviews so curious what ukhd member experiences are of them? Thanks.

fubar888

Appears this kit includes the DC18RA charger. The standard rapid charger is the DC18RC, not clear if there’s any significant difference or limitation of the ‘A’ version?

WeeWifie

Delivery to me is £7.11. Still cheaper too though.

Jules.Tohpipi

I've got this and a pair of 3Ah batteries. Total lawn area is 85m2. Dry grass cutting uses about 50-60% battery. First cut of the year i.e. mildly damp and nearly too long to cut uses just about the lot. That's based on leaving too long before cutting (but not stupidly long) and then scalping it each time. Perfect mower for people who don't like mowing the lawn. .

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.

russthedude

60 mins to charge a 1.5ah battery? get in the bin.

I have used the DUH523Z (brushed) - it worked fine, decent balance, didn't get bogged down easily apart from when cutting branches that were really a bit big for a hedge trimmer. I imagine the brushless alternative would perform better.

SDS drill bits can be used in any drill. Obviously you are not going to get the same performance but they work fine. All my masonry bits are SDS but if its not a major task I just put them in the makita 18V drill driver and they work fine.

Pritesh.K

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.
