Bahco Pistol Grip ratchet screwdriver & bits - £17.99 (Prime) £22.48 (Non Prime) @ Amazon

Great little bit of kit at the lowest it’s ever been

Got this. It's perfectly acceptable. Do I find myself reaching for it when I want a screwdriver... Not really. Would I pay £17.99 (don't know how much I did pay) ...don't think so really. The storage of bits in the handle is convient though. The screwdrivers seem study and well built if not a little long and heavy... In hindsight maybe that's why it's not the first one I reach for in the tool box.


NON pistol grip, same thing but normal handle.


Thank you! Ordered. Intrigued now what this will be like! Coming tomorrow apparently


Nice find OP. Tempted by the stubby option but can’t justify. Bahco good quality tools (y) shame the bits aren’t held the same way as Wera.


The original packaging version is not pistol grip if that matters to anyone buying

Unless you are working on an aging American hulk or something built pre decimilisation why would you use them? Even the hardest brexit won't bring back inches.


Why wouldn't you?


You'll never use the sae imperial sockets so why pay out for them? Get a couple of their smaller metric sets.


Don't think this will get hot as it was £135 last week :(

On their website it says a payslip counts, im an audi apprenticeship vehicle technician. Im not sure if thats good enough tho


True but a quick test of your own under a shop press fitted with a gauge may be added reassurance.


Don't forget these are TUV certified, so they would be load tested to twice the weight (3ton) what is listed as safe working load 1.5t each. They come with a 3 year guarantee too, easily returned for a refund or replacements


99% sure. Just check the weld on the seam behind the label and the opposite side.


You sure it's these very same ones? Halfords do a variety

Seems to have gone up to £5.48 now.


Same here, the black plastic cap that holds the ratchet tends to get loose after a while screwing so you need to constantly tighten it. Just simply stupid bad design. Spend a bit more for something better, I'll say.


Amazon seem to have lost their mind completely with this bloody "Frustration-Free Packaging". Personally, I can't care less about the packaging.


Voted hot and bought


I have one of these and is OK, nothing special. its not as nice as my older non ratchet Stanley one. I wouldn't buy it again... I think id buy something of higher quality, but id say its not bad for the money if its only for occasional use.

I don't own this Bosch set but I do have this Bahco set which is very good. The pro brand SnapOn own Bahco, I "think" they are a Swiss company, at least that's what it says on my Bahco hand saw. :)




I've got this too. Great set


Similar as in a Rolson or Am-Tech that will break after a few months?


If I'm after some stronger screwdriver and drill bits (have a Bosch X70 set and find the bits break far too quickly now I'm doing more DIY), is this the set to go for or are there better options? Don't mind paying a bit more for a set that will last.

There are no bits for an impact driver provided in this set but these sockets are intended for use with an impact wrench: 7 x 1/2" Drive Impact Socket 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23mm Impact drivers are usually used for screws and impact wrenches are usually used for sockets. You can use adaptors of course but they're less efficient.


Can these be used in an impact driver?


That's what I thought until I bought a Caterham. Then I was very glad for them!


Worth having a set of spline sockets when working with damaged fasteners.

Brilliant tools I got a bahco ratchet set didn’t realise the difference till I handled and used these compared to the diy ratchets


Expired up to £14.66 now


Not surprising that it looks similar to the Snap-On ratchet screwdriver, Bahco and Snap-On are actually part of the same company since 2005, SNA Europe. I have a Bahco ratchet socket set and it's a really nice piece of kit, they seem to make very good quality stuff.


Thanks op!! Ordered! (y)

Funny how this set was the same price a few weeks prior to this deal and went to like -100°. Personally would get a Bahco set at this price. All 6 point sockets, better quality ratchets and spanners and no useless SAE sockets that realistically not many will ever use. Plus you can get it for £150 on eBay, even less if you do what I did and wait for a 20% off code.


The trade card isn't a percentage discount, its a set price meaning the trade price and regular price are independent from each other. Sometimes the trade price is more than if they have a sale on lol. This set used to be £135 on trade, however more recently gone up to £150. The regular price has fluctuated up and down a lot with sales etc. while the trade hasn't budged at all.


Used HANDTOOLS15 and got it for 157. It was a bit cheaper than this (148 with an email code in May) so may want to wait if you're not needing it in a rush


I always buy via website and have it delivered. Trade card works fine on there. It even gets the 3 for 2 offer on the tool trays, if you want 6 sided sockets rather than the 12.


I know colleagues that have been chinned off for trade card discount for sale items, probably a lack of knowledge on the Halfords employees behalf.

I need a good socket set, any suggestions? I thought this would be ok with a lifetime warranty .


Double hex sockets tend to round and damage bolts . Halford ratchets also fall apart/gear wears after a while .


Does the advanced range fit in the industrial tool box that I understand are now discontinued. Got the Halfords industrial unit when it was cheap and wondered if the trays just slot straight in?

29.99 gearwrench on ebay




never seen one below a reasonable price (say £30) and actually good. They tend to be shoddily put together with lots of loose parts and play in the drive motor resulting in breakages when trying to apply high torque. The bits are nearly always made of softer metal that will burr very quickly too. However I've had no experience with this set so not voting, just saying it might be cheap for a reason

Yh been there and Screwfix and didn't have it. Ended up buying it on eBay for a 1/4" driver, wasn't expensive. Thanks guys for all the comments.


Bought the same set about 6 years ago and it's been brilliant. Bargiain for anyone looking for some cheap sockets


Have u tried Halfords? They sell individual sockets.


Ebay is the best place for random sockets at a good price. Stick to known brands and you should be fine quality wise. Halfords professional variety are well priced and solid. Teng are a good bet but a bit overpriced. And if you are willing to sell a kidney, Snapon is an option.


True agree, i need something for the kids bikes or when need to do the small odd adjustem etc.

Not snapped mine yet and had a m long scaffold bar on the end. I snapped the wheel nut though (strong) :(


I bought a set of non impact 3/8 deep laser sockets around 25 years ago. Never managed to break one despite spinning them up on a snap on air ratchet. Lost a few over the years and replaced them with snap on as and when. TBH if I was starting out again I wouldn't bother with snap on I'd go for draper expert, bahco or maybe halfords Pro range.


Take it back


I wish they did just a metric set with 200 pieces, I'd never use AF sockets these days . Unless you're into old cars they aren't much use, just makes the set take up more room.

Still got my old battered one without bit storage. New one is (poo) with cheaper plastics. Clearly Stanley has cheapened out & going in the wrong direction as a business. As they say, buy cheap, buy twice with tools.


Yeah I wouldn't bother. I took mine back. Wished I had bought 2 back in the day.


I have one & it’s not great. The lid for the storage compartment keeps coming undone when I’m using it


I've got the original one as well (The bottom doesn't come off to store the bits though, they're all round the collar) my one still works great after years of use. Was thinking about buying this as a spare for a fiver, but sounds like I would be disappointed!


I have an original one bought about 9 years ago which is great. They changed the manufacture of them a few years ago. The latest ones are very poor quality. Ratchet mechanism fails. I bought one and compared side by side. Every element is cheaper.
