I know there a lot of variables in this question. I made a post about repairing my second drill that needs new brushes but they are built into the motor so I have decided it is not worth repairing. I currently have a Makita G series combi and impact driver which are my daily drivers (medium DIY stuff). I also have a corded Dewalt I use when I have a lot of masonry drilling to do. My Makita impact driver is fantastic but the drill is a bit weak, while it has worked perfectly in the four years I've had it I think it is time this became my second drill. I have narrowed it down to three choices:- Bosch Pro (blue) 18v-55, 2 x 2 AH batteries, brushless and metal chuck for £100. Makita DHP482 with 1 x3 AH battery (not sure if it comes with a fast charger) for £107 but this is not brushless and I do like the idea of a brushless one. It also has a plastic chuck rather than metal. Dewalt DCD709P1T with 1 5ah battery, this is brushless, extremely compact and is £130. Battery capacity is not a major issue if I have two batteries as I can just leave on charge and lower capacity batteries are lighter. I looked at some of the cheaper brands but they are not cheap enough but didn't really want to spend more than £100. Most my other tools are corded and are mostly a mixture of Dewalt and Makita with a few cheap brands for tools I don't use all the time. However I am not too fussed about going totally cordless, it is all DIY and all tend to stay here so an extension lead isn't too much of an issue. For this reason I am inclined to with the Bosch, the drill is the cheapest to buy and the batteries are also a bit cheaper than Dewalt and Makita. The downside is the rest of the range is more limited compared to Dewalt and Makita but I don't think this is a major issue for me. A few years ago Dewalt started to get a bad reputation and Bosch and Makita were considered more durable is this is still the case?
