Has anybody any experience of the Worx brand. I have seen an 18v combi drill with two batteries for 70 but have never used anything by them before. Thanks.

Im told the guarantee is 3 or 5 years, so just smash it and take it back.

Some of the corded cheaper tools have worked out ok in my experience. But i don't think i'd trust cheap battery tools. Check to see if they charge up in about 20 minutes, and if the charger then stops charging once the battery's charged. If doesn't do these things I recon it's a bit of a waste of money.
