i want to buy a cordless drill probaly about an 18v what make of drill would you sugest? thanks
got the dewalt,makita and bosch.believe it or not the bosch is i think the best and bosch now give 3year guarantee on all tools.
One of the festools either the TDK or the C12 depending on whether you want power against ability to get into small spaces. i would also advise on getting the complete set with all the accessories such as the eccentric chuck the right angle chuck the depth setting chuck and the centrotec chuck.
stop it shedmen.just go for a decent make of drill mate that's all you need.leave festool for the diy'ers.
i dont mind how much i spend on a drill i just want the best 1 cheers
Yeah leave the festool to Diyers. Their stuff is rubbish. I used that saw on a track its rubbish. What are you on about mazball/officeboy. festool is the nuts.the best investement you can make
Id after agree with MAZBALL on this one. I bought an 18volt makita with 3 batteries for £175 about a year ago.
I picked up a second hand bosch cordless with 2 batteries and charger (all work well), from a carboot for £20 to ease wear on the makita and it has the same amount of taulk as the makita plus the chuck doesnt release as easily.
who are festool .or is it baffoon.go and play with your festoon goldenboy/chump or your train set.lads would laugh their rocks off on site anyone with a festoon.
Festool are one of the top power tool makers in the world. You rarely see them on site because the kit is expensive. I prefer lighter drills to 18v as they are less tiring to use all day, but sometimes you need the capacity. However the latest lithium drills will change all that, as they do both.
Blue Bosch for me, but if money's no object, the Panasonic and Festool drills are luuuuurvly.....
Mazball go and have a look
get yourself one of these http://www.dm-tools.co.uk/product.php/section/5102/sn/STA102715
I'm not sure where you put the batteries
I've got a pair of those braces.
They're rubbish.......my trouser's still keep falling down.
makita lithium 18v is what you want, really lightweight
you keep embarassing yourself as much as you want mazball. If you seriously dont know about the quality of festool and reckon they are DIY kit then that just shows the level of your experience. That saw retails at £369 and is worth every penny.
never seen a joiner yet with festool chump.ask the lads today and they just laughed.we use drills that we can get a 3year guarantee on,are widely recognised and are used by every tradesman everyday.yes tradesmen goldenboy.36v bosch,24v dewalt.say no more goldenballs.
