Other than the Makita Gold bits which are very hard wearing everything else accessory wise is mediocre at best
They manufacture power tools. Accessories are just bought in, badged up and marked up. Bet you can get the exact same items off the same Chinese production lines unbranded on eBay for half the price. Driver and drill bits of this quality cost pennies to make.
+1. Paying for the brand name on Makita accessory kits it seems, not sure they are actually made by them considering the overall quality of sets.
Probably a little better than the pound shop tat.
Not keen on Makita accessories. Apart from their SDS masonry bit set, the others like this one tend to be poor quality. Think Aldi kit but in teal.

Trend ms/p/set2c pro modular storage 2 piece cart set £70.80 + £5.95 delivery @ Anglia tool center£76.95£127.1039% off
Great price for these tool boxes. Looks to be £120+ elsewhere so really good at this price. Not to be confused with the Trend compact modular boxes though as the Pro ones and comp… Read more
looks like a good price. Toolstation want £110 just for the cart and (I think) another £35 for the second box.
I got mine today but not loaded it up with my tools yet. Looks like the large base box could take a router and maybe couple more tools. The top box is smaller though and would struggle with most power tools except maybe an impact driver or small drill / driver. The extra box I bought for £35 (link in deal description) gives loads of space for more power tools though.
Does anyone know how spacious this would be. Could I possibly get a router, cordless skilsaw, cordless jigsaw, and maye a few other power tools into it?

Festool Systainer look great. Big fan of Packout myself (and also used and liked L-Boxx, but not as solid as Packout)
This is a better deal imho. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/makita-dhp485ste-18v-2x-50ah-li-ion-lxt-brushless-cordless-combi-drill-3638435 Better drill, better batteries. Essentially a free charger and case. The only downer is they've included the standard charger. I would sell this on and buy the rapid charger DC18RC.
Brushless ? Charger included ?
I have this and it's brilliant! Got the same set 2 years ago for £134 from My Tool Shed - deal posted on HUKD of course :D
Agreed, I like the Festool Systainer series. Outlandish price though.
I just bought one of these for mine https://www.powertoolworld.co.uk/dewalt-replacement-foam-inlay-for-tstak-ii-suits-dcs355d2-dcs355m2-dcs355n
Funny you should ask, I did butcher the tray a bit with the 355 to get it to fit. In my defence of butchery I'm planning on sourcing some cheap foam instead anyway 😁 The tray I got therefore fits the tool but the other compartments are a bit useless for what I want so defo recommend getting some kind of foam. Looks like the official stuff is great but not my kind of prices (y)
Any luck in getting it to work for your 355?
I guess they split sets then...just removed all the stickers (lol)

Thanks for taking the time to submit your first post @PerryGunn (y)
Crap stick with the Dewalt or Milwaukee versions far better. They’re made by Qbrik and have been notorious for returns back to Trend. Brittle and if you call up they’ll offer you a replacement due to knowing how bad they are.

First post so I’m sure I’ve missed stuff or not done things right so go easy good people. Original price showing as just under £400 but other sites do come within £10-£20 more of … Read more
Does anyone know if it is normal for dewalt chargers to get so hot? Charged 2 4Ah batteries on new kit and charger was very hot afterwards and batteries quite warm. Also slight burning smell. Not too hot to pick up but pretty hot
RCAnderson was correct, it is the Toughsystem Case that comes with. Feels like a good strong case with foam inserts and storage under the lid, very nice
Hey @ns87 nice deal! Well done, thanks for posting (y)
I originally wanted the Milwaukee Impact Wrench, there’s one in work and it’s a monster, but the whole infrastructure is a good bit more pricier than Dewalts so I think it’s the more logical purchase
Like this kit alot. If i would not have latest milwaukees fuel would jump on it.

FastCo have got the same pack for £79.99 with Free Delivery (https://www.fastco.co.uk/toughbuiltr-c600-sawhorse-twin-pack.html). Thanks to the original poster as I didn’t know I needed these and have now just ordered a set (skeptical)
Good price. Have the c700s. Really useful!
Very impressed with these well worth the money!!
They are also available here https://www.powertoolsdirect.com/toughbuilt-c700-2-sawhorse-jobsite-table-twin-pack But to be honest your 650s are probably a perfect buy. I dunno why I justified going for the more expensive ones to be honest. I am just a sucker for fancy tools. I will give you some feedback when mine arrive. Its strange how such a boring tool becomes exciting when you become middle aged haha.
I've just ordered the C650s - they don't deem to have the C700s at the momoent and I could do with them for the weekend.
