Oli,

Is that not a 14.4v drill with nicads on FFX (if that's where you work - I'm guessing from name). It's 1.3Ah batteries too.....

Makita 8281DWPE 14.4v 2 Speed Combi Drill 2 x 1.3ah Ni-Cad
Save £170.80£98

Wine~o: Hitachi *should* be <url>http://www.trade-point.co.uk/power-tools/hitachi-18v-15ah-li-ion-combi-drill-dv18dgl/797689_TP.prd>here</url> but has went AWOL....
Bought one recently and its wicked.....55nm torque, inbuilt work light, decent carry case. Even seems to gain a bit of extra oomph when I use the 3Ah battery from my cordless SDS with it...
Screwfix had the same kit for £99.99

Didn't someone say Tradepoint was dodgy for tools? Something to do with them being funny with waranty - it's not as good as the retail arm for returns/replacements?

I know that SFix have it at £99.99, TP had it at £89.99 a couple of days ago... and let's face it £10 is.......£10..

@BG, yes because its a trade sale the normal sale of goods act don't apply...BUT this one comes with a 3 year Hitachi warranty if you register on-line within 28 days of purchase..

Basically they state that certain power tool brands aren't for trade use and the guarantee does not cover trade use. Such as Black & Decker, Green Bosch, JCB, MacAllister, Performance Power & Ryobi

BG: Depends on the tool, trade grade stuff (Dewalt, Makita, Hitachi) is covered, but the DIY grade stuff (McAllister, Ryobi, Performance power etc) isn't
