Bought for 98 few months ago. Cold
As per many of the other comments here, this is a really good bit of kit for the money, but this is definitely the normal price. Not voted either way.
So what. I've had two faulty in a row? What exact model of bosch do you have?
Note... This drill doesn't have a reverse, it will only drill forward. If it's gets stuck into anything whilst drilling, have a backup drill ready to reverse the drill bit out! Never noticed, until it happened to me🤦
I’ve got one called Big Bertha, she’s a beast.
I've got bosch one too. This is far more powerful. Trust me! Prefer bosch for 95% tasks.
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
https://www.screwfix.com/p/mac-allister-mscd18-li-2-18v-1-5ah-li-ion-cordless-combi-drill/317fx#product_additional_details_container This any good?
Thanks for posting. We have added this to the Highlights section. :D
A zombie purchase then eh? I’ll pass then, but I will whisper the deal to any walkers along the way :p
The use case? (lol)
.......and there is 1 showing in stock now so there is always the possibility of more stock being available.
This is the one that was (and possibly still is) in Lidl for £39.99 37nm torque 1 battery With charger Bought it. Nothing special, but does as intended, and the specs match the price
This is a good price, shame is OOS.
Delivery is £5 as originally given in the post.
Because for less than 5 minutes of my time possibly 2 people have grabbed a bargain as a result and if there is store stock anywhere others may be looking out for it as a result. Sorry if I wasted 2 minutes of your precious time, but it won't stop me doing so again. If I know I'm visiting a particular store I try to remember to look at HUKD to see if there may be anything worth having, if people don't post I won't know.
This is a 75 piece Makita, it's in the warehouse deals at Amazon but as new and free shipping if Prime, a bit of everything and a case for them https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01HIIFFH4/ref=sr_1_1?condition=used&s=warehouse-deals&keywords=makita+drill+bits&qid=1590595905&sr=8-1&m=A2OAJ7377F756P&dchild=1 OR THIS 100 Piece, depends what you want! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Makita-B-53811-Screwdriver-Accessory-Multi-Colour/dp/B071Z6C71H/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=makita+drill+bits&qid=1590596242&s=diy&sr=1-2
Copy the url from any amazon deal and paste it into this website, it’s limited at the moment as they have done some deal with Amazon but still gives you some data, normally you get a lot more www.camelcamelcamel.com (y)
Whete did u get that data from
Standard price at hardware stores as well (bought it £9.99 at B&Q a few years ago)
Thats the standard price, I have had it cheaper in the past
Mine just arrived. Is anyone else surprised by just how comically small it is? I wasn't expecting full size, but this is *tiny*
"Gardena" shears are best.
Been waiting on these to drop back down after ours gave up the ghost a while back but I've just ordered the einhell version from Wickes with the free battery and charger which looks a more substantial beast for a tenner more.
Thanks for this, the kids hair is getting quite long
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.
That's good to hear, as it sounds like although it's a cheaper option now it will still have reasonable longevity. Have ordered the ryobi kit for now and tomorrow will get other stuff you suggested. Always good to "save" isn't it?
I'd probably say the Riyobi is the sensible choice for you; when starting out my business, and on a budget I used Riyobi which served me well despite being what I would consider DIY, but the higher end of DIY. It's also got a massive range of interchangeable household tools (and garden tools) priced competitively for the DIY market, so may save you money if you look for further power tools in the future. I'd say, buy the Riyobi, and use it along side the better quality bits I linked to with the cheaper set for the other bits & bobs, and it will make life much easier when hanging those shelves (y) With all that money you're "saving" (!), don't forget a spirit level ;) - I think smart phones may have an app for that (oh, what a world!), but still worth investing in one IMO
Wow, thank you for such a comprehensive reply. I basically just want to be able to do stuff such as: Put shelves up and fix furniture to walls (plasterboard in my house as it's a new build) Install shelving in a brick garage Whilst I'm all for buying things that last, your comment is making me wonder if it's a bit too much overkill buying this set and instead whether I should go for the Riyobi set posted here? Ryobi I realise I'm asking you to tell me how to suck eggs... but I guess spending a bit less means plenty of cash for quality drill bits.
This will be suitable for all DIY jobs where drilling is necessary; so drilling wood, masonry and metal - the impact driver for driving screws into or out of wood, loosen any troublesome screws bolts or just a simple driver. As a novice DIY user, this may be a tad overkill for you, but won't let you down and will last you a lifetime - you will also have the batteries and charger and will be able to add other tools to your workshop (or under the sink!), and Bosch has a lot to choose from, but again Bosch Blue is professionals stuff, so prices to match Drill bits and screw bits are something you gain over a lifetime, but as starters - you will need a decent drill bit set (the ones with metal, wood and masonry bits), and a decent screwdriver set (some sets will cove both). Cheaper is not always better, but this set is half decent and fine for DIY. If you want something that matches the quality of the drill, then you want this and this (and also get the cheaper set for the wood bits and spare drills/ screwdriver bits - you'll be amazed by the gulf in difference of quality between the cheap and quality)
As a complete novice, I want to address my shameful lack of DIY skills and I think buying some tools would provide the impetus for learning how to do basic stuff like putting up shelves around the house. Would this be a good set to get me started? And what else, if anything, will I need? Thanks in advance!
This is really good deal. Random orbit seems robe very expensive
Missed that I will delete
I Mitre Saw this deal
Mitre need new material
Very poor :p
I payed £40 for it in one of 2 stores in Perth. The other had it on sale at £30. Quality bit of kit and well made.
Which one? Any left?
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.
Thanks for the recommendations. Tried drilling into concrete using a set that came with a 'tool kit' and after ten minutes I was as deep as a drawing pin head.
Thank you! I'll be ordering some of these
These masonry bits are tough as nails, and chew through anything: Sealey AK5708 Tungsten Carbide Tipped Masonry Drill Bit Set 8pc amazon.co.uk/dp/B001SFZWD6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_H4oYEb2BW0XXT For standard drill bits, I have these and they’re amazing, despite being a bit expensive: axminstertools.com/25-piece-high-speed-steel-ground-drill-bit-set-200286 I’ve had success with these in the past if you’re looking to spend less: Makita D-47173 18Pc Mixed Drill Set Metal Box, Blue/Black/Silver amazon.co.uk/dp/B00YRDAAHE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_p7oYEbZWNDRJ9
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.
Bent AND Broke.
Bent or broke? Make your mind up.
The drill bits from this makita set are not very good at all, bent and broke drilling into wood.
Sure. £18.99 delivered. Came within 2 days https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Makita-100-Piece-Power-Drill-Bit-Set-Screwdriver-Set-Holesaw-Masonry-HSS-PZ2/153591656340?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
Hey do you have a link to these Makita bits you have bought ?
Thanks. Different product unless they changed the stock over the past few days. I picked up that one 2 weeks ago but put it back on the shelf. I've even posted the deal here and was taken off, as HUKD does not allow in store deals if the item is not essential. That one does not have the hammer action. That is £40 at Wilko too. The reason I posted this was because of hammer action.
Heat added. Lidl - Northern Ireland are selling this for £39.99, on the shelves today with a whole lot of other stuff
I had mine for 4-5 years and was ok for me...
Bought this as early Father’s Day present last week for my dad from Argos it’s absolutely rubbish it’s going back today via Sainsbury’s
Don't know about delivery, but yes, I've noticed this today, in store:
For basic DIY drilling into wood and screwing small screws this would be fine. Looks like a neat bit of kit with the accessories and box. Cant ask for more than that. However there are plenty of drill that are more powerful and probably at the same price that are sold in lidl or Aldi if you have one near by. The parkside or Ferrex tools are pretty good.
Looks .like fixed battery ?
Does this have the same battery as the hydroshot as was looking to buy a new battery?
I have many WORX 18v tools, they are well made, reliable and quite powerful. As for the 12v stuff I can only assume the above stands, but less powerful. For the price its worth a punt.
Can anyone comment on the power of this... Looks a neat bit of kit for basic DIY
It says the torque is only max of 20nm in the manual. Is that not so good. I was thinking about the 12v Bosch GSB 120 li with the 2 batteries and max torque of 28nm.
Despite the fact this was voted cold when it was just a tenner more, this looks like a good deal to me. I bought into Worx tools just a couple of months ago (cordless hedge clippers, clever reciprocating saw / jigsaw and a small vacuum) and they are all excellent. Well built and nicely finished. Note however that the batteries are expensive, which makes this one a good deal. I tried out two aftermarket batteries: one Creabest, which wouldn't click into place properly, one Dsanke which claimed to be 3.0Ah but I opened it up and could see it was only 2.0Ah. So I think you need to stick with Worx batteries. If only this drill had a hammer function too, I'd be all over it!
Here is a direct link to the PDF version of the user manual for this drill on their website: Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/Driver WX178 WX178.1 WX178.9 It's not very comprehensive but does explain the various features, specifications and usage. I hope this is what you were after.
That video whilst being a sales pitch actually explained the features pretty well. It does look good, but still not sure how it stacks up in performance compared to the Einhell. My main annoyance with Worx is the fact you can't find specifications or details of its products on its website, like the manual to get more detail.
Last week I was actually tempted to go for this different model, as a novelty, but ended up with a Ryobi instead:
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.
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?
PSB 18 Li 2 is a slightly larger drill housing a more heavy duty motor. 54nm Torque 1650rpm 13mm chuck. 1800 li 2. 38nm Torque 1350rpm 10mm I have the 1800 li 2 and a DeWalt DCD 776 I used to own a PSB 18 Li 2 and it outperformed the entry level pro tools ( DCD 776) It is well made quality tool that's made in Hungary.
I've orders the £90 from Amazon and better suited. Thanks for heads up on that one. Still heat added to this deal as seems good price if it suits.
As long as spend is £30+ should work
And is that a standard mains powered drill or a battery drill? And is that a granite house, or made of sandstone? Saying that a normal drill drills "stone" isn't that useful, as the Mohs scale is pretty wide in terms of hardness
Try reading my comment. Did I say stone? I'm pretty sure I said brick, concrete and dense blocks, none of which are stone.
No, but Aldi are doing a good price on angle grinders at the moment.
Ideal for an itchy hoop.
Can anyone advise if these would be effective on the mother in laws stubble?
Great for removing dingleberries.
