Exchanged my nectar point for and ebay voucher, plus 10% from ffx, paid around £30 ish delivered. Result :D ... didn't need it, didn't want it... (:I
I got the big wheeled Coleman one , saw the identica model on some hospital documentary being used to carry human transplant organs so you know its going to be great for beer . Actually missus uses it as a food freezer overflow Christmas time as well.
Knowing DeWalt - probably XD
Blimey. This seems exorbitant for a cool box on wheels (horror)
I’m addicted to all Dewalt stuff, especially boxes. I bought one yesterday so I have to let this one go lol
Shame there's no batteries or charger, since I've only got a couple of Worx batteries in the house 😔
Just used mine tonight coincidentally to shorten some clear plastic orchid pots from B&Q. Surprising how straight you can cut if you're careful.
These are so good, I have had two corded multitools (cheap brands) then got this on a deal from toolstation for £99 just before Christmas. It is a joy to use, so well balanced and light. Mine came with alot of sanding discs, smooth medium and course as well as two blades, one for metal and one for wood. Both blades are really good, and the sanding attachment also fabulous. I would'nt have believed how much easier the cordless one is to use. I have just fitted a second hand kitchen and it made the job so much easier.
I've used a 6 ah flexvolt battery in mine a few times and I didn't find it to heavy, not sure on the weight difference between the 9 and 6 battery but it should give you some sort of idea if the difference is isn't that much
Would a flex volt 9 ah battery be too heavy to hold on this multi tool? I'm tempted to buy this but just trying to justify it as I've got a corded one (aldi brand) . Because it's corded is the reason as to why I hardly ever use it.

£383.94! What a joke that is. This isn't a great deal, just a great fib on the "usual price" (annoyed) Stick with the good guys - cheaper, and better all round service (y) £269.99 https://www.powertoolmate.co.uk/Products/004000060016/EB%2FM18BLPP2A2-502X
Agreed. The equivalent kit was 250 at screwfix at launch
Careful a lot of over inflated was prices on tool shed. As a regular buyer of Milwaukee tools I can honestly say shop around as prices can vary massively for the same product. Toolstation, Screwfix & Travis Perkins often have good deals o

These brushless ones, good deal, but you wouldn't normally spend £374.54 for them. For £336 you can get the next step up brushless FUEL model with over double the torque on the drill (135 vs 60), and 10% more torque on the impact driver (203 vs 180). The next step up again is the ONE series, and that would be even more powerful and that's goes for about £400 power tool mate has the same pricing for this combo set: https://www.powertoolmate.co.uk/Products/004000060016/EB%2FMILM18BPP2C-402C
look up Makitauk manufacturing. https://makitauk.com/manufacturing
They have various factories across the world including one here in Telford I believe
Components made in China and assembled in Romania last I checked?
I got the brushless ones in the previous deals and by far the best tools I've ever used a couple of times. But... I may use them more, who knows.
Hey @dgm1234 , thanks for posting your first deal. Sorry it didn't go hot this time around, but fingers crossed for next time :)
It was genuine. Also picked up makita impact drive with 5ah battery. It was posted here few times and each time it was sold out in mins
Lucky, but thats not going to happen and they can't have been genuine makita,.
I got two of these for like £32 directly from amazon last time it was on sale
I bought into Makita tools after seeing a series of genuine 3ah batteries for under £20 the batteries haven't been on offer since I bought the bare tools (mad) Got a couple of cheap Chinese knock offs from Amazon that have so far been excellent.

Got mine the other day, thrilled it has a new Efficut blade on it too, which wasn’t mentioned in the listing but I had hoped would be the case! Great post op, keep an eye out for good dual bevel sliding mitre saw deals! 8)
Thanks for posting and congratulations on your first hotukdeals thread
I called them midrange, as that's what they are on makitas tool lineup. Makita sell both cheaper, and more expensive, 18v lxt drivers and drill/drivers. Cheaper ones have less torque, pricier ones are brushless. I've got these. They are really good, but if I'd spent double, I'd have got a tool that looks very similar, but is brushless... 'All the gear, no idea' is a term I've used in my field. Just cos the apprentice has better tools than the gaffer, doesn't make them a better craftsmen. Believe in yourself chippy!
Good value set which I bought 3 years ago. Combi drill is fine for light duty only, impact drill is great and worth it with the 5amp batteries.
Put that on your business cards
Some people on this site seem to go through power tools in months if they’re not top of the range, I did my time before cordless were invented, in the days of the twist drill and brace and bit, how would they have coped (lol)
Don't know how you decided on 'Mid range at best'? I'm a carpenter and have this set, but with the 3 amp batteries as it's a few years old now. I use them every day and never let me down. Of course, that could make me a 'Mid range carpenter' XD
