Drill driver/impact driver recommendations 18v

Post by Desmondo15 »

Anyone spotted any good deals? Thinking makita 18v so I can go for a site radio to run off the batteries.
It's DIY use mainly not on site daily use.
Replacing Bosch pro 18v drill driver and impact driver.

Thanks

They are the old style ones; NiMH. Got 4 batteries; 2 original and 2 copies. 3 of them aren't charging now all of a sudden so I'm down to 1 which won't last long.
They fit into 2 Bosch GSR 18v drill drivers and a Bosch impact driver pro. The body parts are sound but a tad heavy with battery.

The batteries also don't last ages which is why I'm tempted to upgrade, seems a shame for how much use them. I would use the drill driver daily for mixing paint which my 12v Bosch ones do at the moment.
