Which drill option

Post by dannyboyno7 »

Looking for some advice on which drill set to purchase! I have always got by with a 18v B&D (which has died) & lending off my Father in-law.
I am going to be starting numerous projects, renovating a house and want to build up a tool set of my own.
I have narrowed my choices down to either
Stanley FatMax Cordless 18 V 1.3A Li-ion Brushed Drill Twin Kit +
2 batteries FMCK465C2S-GB priced £100 (combi drill & impact)
Bosch EasyDrill 1200 Cordless Drill/Driver with 12 V, 1.5 Ah
and a
Bosch Cordless 18V 1.5Ah Li-ion Brushed Drill driver 1 battery Bosch PSR 1800 LI-2 priced £112.43 for the pair.

I’ve recently purchased a bosch jigsaw & was tempted to go the bosch route or will having 2x 18v be more beneficial?
Any help or advice would be massively appreciated
Thanks in advance

is the jigsaw cordless ?
i found having the impact drill with 3 speed has been very very useful (i have dewalt) how many settings are on the impact driver you are considering.
I'm only a diyer doing various projects on the house and have slowly extended the dewalt range keeping all the same batteries - i would suggest keeping to one make and having various size batteries to run across different tools
