- Cordless drill advice
Remember to check the battery amps when you compare drills.Posted 5 years ago
I have got a 18.4V makita with a 3amp battery pack and its great.
Seen a lot of offers on other Makita ones where they use the fact it comes with 2 batteries as a fantastic deal, but they are then only 1.4amps each.MukeMember
I’m after a new cordless combi drill driver and have found this Dewalt DC725KB which seems to fit my criteria.Are there any other recomendations from the STW tool gurus ?Posted 5 years ago
The only downside at the moment is that amongst the good I have found some bad reviews for tooled-up.com which is normal I guess but just a bit cautious of the old addage of if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
Anyone used Tooled-up.com before ?theblackmountMember
Must be a Hilti rep 😉
You might as well say Bosch / end of thread.
The fact is the majority of the Trades guys you’ll see using combi drills day in/out are on Dewalt or Makita. If they are good enough to be used constantly for Trade use they are more than sufficient for domestic duties.Posted 5 years agofd3chrisMember
Dewalt quality has deteriorated massively in the last few years and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone unless you were only using the tool sporadically . Makita are ok but are nowhere near the quality of Hilti. It all depends how the tool will be used . For home use Makita is enough, but as already mentioned , get 3 amp batteries as its a huge improvement .Posted 5 years ago
