Yes best deal at the moment, but isn’t it a ‘fake’ deal. That the price it’s reduced from is an inflated one. I’m personally holding out for a good deal and will wait till something comes along. But yes, if you need to buy today then this is the best you can do.
Ah yes, just saw that is gone, sorry
That too looks a good one if you prefer milwaukee gear.
I agree that deal was better, but this is probably best at the moment?

https://www.powertoolworld.co.uk/wera-1335-1350-1355-6-kraftform-comfort-screwdriver-x6-pc-set Details below confirm it is the same set (photos show hex screwdrivers and this set). Not convinced this is such a hot deal
Bought the magnetiser for a laugh and took it into work. A colleague showed me any strong magnet will magnetise your driver's so YMMV. It's a handy big size if you need to find it though but I keep a pack of magnets in a small clear box all from Amazon or eBay just for hanging drawings on metal.
Usually close to this price anyway, so not a 'must buy', but once I paid up for mine - I've been very glad to have it. Only needed it for about 4 occasions, but there would have been no other way of achieving what I wanted. Compatible with anything - even a hand bit holder (which I've used on it with great effect).
Agree, & they make no claims, but as I said above, hammer works 'alright'. If you lock it in with a good grip. Though I also think it's an irrelevant concern as you can do most materials a compact drill or driver can handle without switching hammer on & using the right bit. Good impact driver, this, and decent bit - done brick, mortar, concrete (while slow & steady for the latter). People will use it for wall plugs, cable runs etc., not ground anchors. Should've said it can also be a lifesaver if you do a fair amount of pocket hole work.
Does it have a mechanism to transfer the hammer action through 90 degrees? I'd be amazed if it does because that's not a trivial piece of engineering to make robust.
It really doesn't with this. Cheap ones, yep, blown a few up, but this hasn't complained at quite brutal use with impact or hammer.
I'd have thought trying to use this with an impact driver would wreck it.

Anyone got reccomendation for buying the accessories for this.
Not rumour , it’s out in Japan now https://www.makita.co.jp/ir/upload_file/m000-/210302-1.pdf
When ordering separately, you’ll need to get the correct insert for the tool in question. The makpac cases are completely empty.
Also available with: Tool + makpac case = £130.89 Tool + accessory set (blades sanding pad) = £123.24 Tool + makpac case + accessories = £153 Good value to add case/accessories rather than buying separately?
I think most electronics falls into the same downward spiral though, most things are not made where they used to be.
this kit is £272 on ebay with code https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131918262269?epid=3031991176&hash=item1eb6f0effd:g:bsYAAOSwlOdgojq3&_trkparms=%26rpp_cid%3D609a406f06d0318c55aeff13
(lol) That's made me chuckle all I could think of was "Ooh Matron" pmsl (lol)
I'm sure there's an app to get good grinder deals ;)
Yeah, that’s cheaper. There’s a load of bundle offers on eBay at the moment that, with the PICKSAVINGS voucher, make the batteries pretty good value. Always an option if you want the tools/can be bothered selling them on. I was working on purchasing just batteries.
For anyone that is willing to wait 30 days for a 2nd this does not seem like a good deal. I got a blower, fast charger and 2x 5ah batteries for £150 by redemption. Already cheaper that eBay offer Unless I'm missing something?!
That looks like something that would buckle and break if you try to make a hole with it in heavy clay soil. I've watched someone using a version of the OP's tool to dig a post hole, it was slow going compared to my hole borer, but worked well enough. I use an old heavy duty manual hole borer my father bought decades ago (I believe it was army surplus), which has two angled semi-circular metal plates to cut through the soil and hinged flaps that capture the soil when you lift it out, with an auger on the bottom and a metal tube and handle to turn it. Similar to this:- Mind at that price you might be able to afford a petrol powered one!
Yes - just be sure the ash handles aren’t damaged in shipping - I had to return first set as there were splinters in the grab area :>(
Missed it again, was waiting for these to come back on offer, putting in some fence posts soon
Great for digging post holes. Bought one a couple of years back. Highly recommended
I disgaree. I built a new decking and our soil is clay and this, well wickes own brand version, cut the soil up and removed it perfectly.
I’m really really tempted by this, but on reviews some people complain about the support handle at end removing it on and off is more difficult than it normally is etc etc. Does anyone own one? Really tempted I have the drill bits by Erbauer there great.
Ok for DIYers. Better choice than the Bosch percussion drill that keeps appearing on here IMO (will be better at drilling holes).
Says it has in description
According to the OP blurb it has a clutch but no brakes, so should be driven with care (y)
Had the older looking one (psb 1800?) for years. Got to the point that smoke started coming out the back so it's been retired and replaced with a Makita. That said its a good drill, and was more than good enough for most household jobs.
Paid £60 2 years ago. It is ok for light jobs. But wouldn’t pay £80 for it.
Great drill I owned my for about 4 years, it got battered, handled everything I threw at it. 4 years later I sold it for 20 quid less than I paid for it.
I'm another one who bought this for £60 so it might be worth holding out for another deal later. Having said that its a great drill and i've now got a few of the 18v batteries and tools and have found them all excellent, so even for £80 its probably worth it as it includes 2 batteries. (although the 2.5mah batteries are only £30 right now).
Hi, is it definitely the XXL version of the Triton version? Cheers Si
Got a similar Jaw Horse in Homebase sale a few years ago not really knowing what it was but it's an incredible bit of kit - so versatile. I use it more than my B&D workbench now and every tradesman I lend it to wants one.
Ive had one for years. (probably same factory) Same as the branded version - had it side by side with someone else's. This is the equivalent to the XXL size. Also usual Aldi 3 year guarantee. I can hold doors upright for sanding and paint. These are really heavy items (which might or might not be what you need)
That's the same kind I've got! Picked it up a couple of years ago cheap, well used. I just stripped it down and rebuilt it over the weekend. Those aluminium H supports are so lightweight. I really want to get a full aluminium one (one of the early models) but they go for silly money now days.
I've got a "superjaws" equivalent and its main advantage is that it's clamping system is leg operated via a styrup type mechanism and it grips really well with a wide variety of options on adjusting the jaw opening sizes. Used it for trimming doors to holding a chair whilst reupholstering! Be aware it's really heavy duty and needs some care when pulling the collapsible legs out of their stowage position so not a lightweight or easy thing to move around but once assembled it's a great bit of kit!
