Little bit cheaper here, seems the same model? https://www.powertoolmate.co.uk/Products/NewProducts/EB%2FDRT50ZJ?
Easy mistake, given the poor website. Credit for bothering to post the deal even if it isnt the cheapest.
I stand corrected when I added it to my cart it clearly said included Vat but when I went to pay for it they've added the vat on top. Bit naughty really
when i clicked on add to basket, it came up with an error saying "add quantity" which showed price as £149 with and without vat. but when you added the quantity required it changed to the proper price in the basket. so you obviously didn't go all the way to checkout, or you would have seen the proper price.
how would this set posted compare to this set on the link makita g series
£150.00 Incl. VAT now
That's a bit condescending. I'm not "in the trade" but I prefer to buy good, durable and effective tools rather than cheap stuff. A good tool is a good tool, whether you use it once a month or every day. If longevity was the only issue, then you might have a point. I bought a cheap SDS drill, because it was only likely to be used for a single job, but all my other kit tends to be DeWalt. And not just because I like the colour. Oops, sorry, I mean the colour doesn't enter into it.
Im a serious DIYer with some commercial use. I have this set and a cheaper 18V set. The Bosch 10.8V is great and dont be fooled by its lower power. The drill will easily go into red brick and i have had no problem driving 100mm screws into wood for framing with the impact driver. Dont get me wrong the 18V is better but you dont always need that much grunt! The reason i got them was due to weight saving over the 18V stuff. Im very happy with them and would recommend to anyone.
Comparing this to an 18v is like apples and pears. This is a specific tool for specific job. Those in the trade will know what im talking about, most DIYers can get away with the cheap B&D drill that will get used once in a blue moon. This is a good deal however and I do have a lot of the Bosch blue 10.8v range. It does crack me up when I see some DIY fan dust off their professional tool to use and it's in immaculate condition, save the money if you don't use it every day like us in the trade.

Sorry, ignore my last comment. Didn't read that this included a charger. However this has the 4.0ah battery for a few quid more. As far as I'm aware BTD vs DTD is literally just a label change for this model http://www.uktoolmart.com/gb/cordless-kits/30301-makita-lxt-18v-btd146-impact-driver-40ah-battery-bl1840-dc18rc-charger-and-case.html
