"Absolutely brilliant. Contrary to the instruction booklet both my batteries have charge in them. My first use has been to drill holes in some alloy tubing A real pleasure to use this drill which I am sure will give me a long working life."
"Purchased this to replace old drill, and was also moving house. To date I cannot fault it but time will tell, that's why I gave it only 4 stars for reliability. There is a small button on back of drill which you press, and it gives you the battery condition, which I could not find any info in instruction manual. But all in a very good drill."
"Can't fault this! Fabulous package - drill itself is nice and compact, comes with two batteries, charger and carry case. This lets you keep working even when one battery is drained, just swap and keep working while the other charges - should be standard on ANY cordless drill! I've used this to drill masonry, metal, tiles, and wood - even with reasonably large forstner bits, it coped brilliantly. As a screwdriver it's small enough to get into most places, the adjustable torque is precise and effective, and the battery life is seemingly limitless when on screwdriver duty. Great drill - really cannot fault it."
"My only real problem was the chuck which was a little stiff when purchased. I applied some WD40 which eased it but it wouldn't grip drill bits very well. One of the batteries was also suspect it seemed to have been broken and welded back together. Screwfix were brilliant they took the product back and exchanged it without fuss. New drill seems much better at the moment."
"my old ni cad drill was shot so this came recommended by the shop staff as 2 of them had one, was reduced in price and came with 2 batteries, charged both up and have used the drill a lot and it's still using the first battery, wonder how long it will go on for !!! it,s light and fits in the hand nice too as it's not an oversized drill, comes with a decent case & charger like most drills do but no free bits with this one but not a problem as most diy'ers or tradesmen have zillions of them anyway as i do !!"
"used this now for few months waited to write a review. I have used this on multitude of jobs and its been fantastic until I used it to put up guttering. as certain points the drill dies then it gets going again. I though it was the battery but it bursts into life like nothing happened. I aim to use it a little more before taking it back to get it changed. battery life brill, the price excellent. just the one issue which I hope is one of those things while the batteries get their full use this may sort itself out."
"I have been looking for a replacement drill for sometime. This one seemed to fit the bill. I wanted an 18volt drill and must have li-ion batts, also wanted a spare battery. This one has all that and a case as well. I have been using a Makita drill at work with a 4AH batt which just goes on for ever between charges, but I could not justify the cost as a DIYer. So this was good compromise. For the money, this one seems a good buy at present."
"In the first place, this drill is currently good value for money but, it is obviously built down to a price. I am pleased I bought it on offer and not at it's normal price which would make DeWalt a far better purchase. The battery charger is a fairly flimsy affair with a very lightweight power adaptor. The built-in light doesen't actually illuminate the drilling area because of the shadow cast by the chuck and annoyingly, there is NO spindle lock as advertised. Is this because the model number is totally different from the model advertised? As I say, a decent enough drill for DIY but not in the same class as DeWalt. I can't comment on reliability. On the positive side, It does what it is supposed to. What more can you ask?"
"OK, it's not expensive, but it ought to work. When I opened the box it proved impossible to get it to change gear and it stayed stuck in gear 2. Poor quality control at the manufacturers. No problem in getting it changed at our nearest store but it shouldn't have been necessary. The replacement works fine so far and changes gear OK. Just check before you leave the shop."
