"habing already purchased an xr drill and impact driver about 12 months ago. I decided I was going to invest in this kit. Couldn't be happier. The tools are so powerful considering they run off a battery. The circular saw has cut through everything I've thrown at it so far (mainly 3x2 and 4x2 timbers). Grinder is powerul just make sure you get a good blade. Haven't tried the jigsaw yet but it seems like it will easily handle everything. Th torch is brilliant. I work in loft conversions so comes in really handy and start of a job. Really go kit. Well worth the money!"
"Best set of tools I have ever had, quality is far better than other market leaders. The product had 50 pounds off at the time I got them so very happy. The boxes they come in look like they will survive a bomb blast."
"Dewalt tools may be a little bit more expensive than other makes but you get what you pay for. From the second the boxs arrived you know you have bought something that's going to last. The Jigsaw cuts like a dream as does the Ripsaw. The drill and impact driver are powerful. With them all being battery powered I thought they might be under powered but that's definatly not the case. Definatly a good buy."
"Bought this kit after reading some reviews on here. It has everything I need for my small business all in one place, build quality is of the highest, smooth operating and very quiet with the bonus of a 3 year manufacturers warranty. Screwfix is also the cheapest place I found this kit."
"Purchased these a few weeks back and wanted to play before writing the review.
To say im happy is an understatement, I had bought the xr first fix and so wanted to upgrade my old drill and impact driver whuch both were getting a little tired.
Bought this set as it looked very good value and after useing it I can say its amazing value.
The drill and impact driver leave the old ni 18v for dead on power and speed + my old set had nice spot lights which were good but you had to squeeze the trigger to light up just enough with out turning drill. on the new set the light is time delay so a quick pull and let of and the light stays on a few seconds
The skill saw is just perfect. set the depth & angle of cut with out tools and just fly through (out of the box play through 3×2 with out flinching) Note the blade comes with this tool
Jig saw again leaves any other cordless I have tried standing and just flys through. note you will need to purchase blades if you don't already have any (so many variations in jigsaw blades etc )
Grinder I have only tickled stuff so far but is surprisingly powerful and cut through concrete blocks (testing / playing) with a small dimond blade no problem note you will need to purchase blades for this product if you dont already have some about
Last but not least the one tool I thought would be put at the bottom of the box never to see use, how wrong I was as so far this is actually been the most used tool for everything to working at night to grabbing stuff out the shed or van and even walking the dog over the fields. One bright little light
The tough box system is brill and the trays for putting the bits n bobs in are perfect, mine got missed out for some reason ( happens from time to time) but a quick email to the fab guys n girls at screwfix and all sorted, just one of the many reasons I will never buy anywhere else
In short if you buy these you will probably chuck you old kit and never look back"
"Okay so a bit extravagant for the DIY'er but wow was it worth it. Absolutely fantastic piece of kit. Really powerful considering it is cordless. I am new to the world of the impact driver! I don't know how I lived without it. I finish the jobs a of a lot quicker."
"I have purchased other Dewalt XR models & found them to be great. The tools are brilliant & the batteries are strong, all in all great value & performance. The carry cases are excellent well thought out across the range with the storage compartments on the inside. The only nagging thing is that the battery charger is slow compared to my 25 minute Makita set. The Dewalts take approx an hour & they don't offer any chance of choosing other tools which would be handier in the set by this I mean I would of preferred a Recipricating saw instead of the Jigsaw but thats just me being picky. I would strongly recommend them to anyone."
"I bought this as my 18v NI cad impact driver and drill were getting tired. These lithium ion batteries are excellent with lots more life in them between charges. The impact driver is powerful and the circular saw is handy, no longer need to get out the extension and 240v circular saw which was a chore. Now just pick out the cordless circular saw job done. This was on offer at £699.99 when I bought them which is still a lot to spend on tools but I feel they will last a long time as my older units did and would cost more to buy individually. Glad I've got them now. They will soon earn the money back. The jigsaw blade can be a bit fiddly and fell out a few times on first use. The grinder didn't come with a disc which would have been helpful. Another trip to screwfix to buy that. All in all a good buy and I would recommend."
