Neither really, it was just that I have never seen a drill give up like this one has, it is eleven years old (I think)

I am going to get This one as its the cheapest one (with hammer) my local screwfix actually have on the shelf.

id look at the drills with the 3 ah battery that screwfix are doing as specials. its a much better dewalt drill than that one

then youll have decent ah batteries so you can buy the sds drill naked and never have the missfortune to use the hammer action on a cordless drill again :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Thanks for that fin :salute: , but its only for use here at home, so I can not justify spending that much on some thing that will not get much use. (I have a corded sds drill too, don't use that much either)

I bought this one https://www.screwfix.com/p/erbauer-eri7 ... rill/9284t last year for £79, I would have liked a Dewalt but at the time there was not a deal like that one on offer, they were around £140 I recall. If the Dewalt offer you are considering was available then I would deffo have got that instead.

Having said that I have been very pleased with the Erbauer it is powerful and the batteries last for ages before recharge is needed so no complaints. I just wished it was a Dewalt.

Also

Lidl have the 20v drill driver £40 coming up on the 27th october I think according to the notice outside mine, only one battery though as usually not backward compatible batteries and doesn't look like its hammer action
https://www.lidl-flyer.com/en-GB/?_ga=2 ... er/page/24

Ozito have a 5 year warranty drill (domestic ) 1 yr battery and a bigger range but are more expensive might be worth a look if they have black friday offers

That one, was the first one I saw, but they don't have it at Luton, and I needed a drill today. :-) (I also must have hammer action on a drill)

Have you already bought the DeWalt S/E ?? the Hitachi at 10 quid more has a 3 year guarantee and 2 x 2.5AH batts. only downside is that the brake is a bit harsh and can loosen smaller drill bits if drilling more than a few holes. But once you know that you just tighten it up after every 3rd/4th hole. takes a second.

I got it yesterday morning, needed one for a few jobs.

Can't believe how little it weighs compared to my old one. (Old one weighs 1.5 times this one)

Very happy.

Some of the reviews for that one say that it has issues with switching to/from hammer action.

Probably worth giving it a good try out over a few weeks

On the Dewalts I have I only had one that would be a bit stiff clicking to hammer action and I used blip the motor a couple of times which seemed to work. It is probably a key way has to align in the gears to engage the hammer action.
