Not trade but serious DIY. My tools are generally Blue bosch, Makita or Dewalt. Current battery is 1.3Ah 18 Volt so 2Ah with 2 batteries will be fine I think

This is a good buy https://www.screwfix.com/p/dewalt-dcd77 ... rill/2710p Add another £50 for the 2ah battery option. Not sure it is worth it with two batteries and a short recharge time.

That's a brushed tool. Just to point out - brushless tools are generally a lot more expensive than equivalent brushed motor tools with a premium (on 18 volt tools) of £50 to £100 in many cases. OK, so you get another 40% run time and some more power, but it comes at a price

All the premier brands are good but quite frankly for frequent DIY use, which you have indicated, I think you should take a step back and look at something like this https://www.screwfix.com/p/erbauer-eri6 ... rill/5304p with a 2 year guarantee. It will do what you want and after two years of £1 a week depreciation you can write it off. I am sure it will keep going well for years.

In the "good brands", it is worth going to shops to check the hand fit, balance that is particular to you.
Toshiba, Metabo and Makita fit me. Dewalt and Milwaukee less so (in past experience they tended to hurt my hand between the thumb and index).
